A Worthwhile Adventure

FarCry 3 is a FPS with RPG qualities. Giving you three tiers of what you would like to master. Heron, focusing more on shooting enemies from a distance. Shark, making you a unstoppable force up close, performing takedowns on multiple enemies. Last but not Least Spider, if you like to take a stealthy approach and take out groups of enemies before they even have the slightest idea, hearing them cower as their team vanishes 1 by 1.

The story is interesting, nice plot, believable bad guy (Who you see within the first 5 minutes), and a beautiful Island just waiting for you to explore.

During my playtime the story took up a good amount of my time. Not to even mention the sidequests you receive after taking over a base. I spent several hours attempting to get through the story, But having to kill a pack of rare sharks with a Bow and Arrow, I just couldn't let up on feeling like a champion.

With that said I have a few negative things to mention. I couldn't help that the game felt easy. Going against the human NPC's got boring after a while. Wasn't as threatening as a Komodo Dragon hissing hiding in the tall grass.
The graphics are good but with the Xbox being as old as it is. The PC is where the real beauty lies in this game.

With that I'll score based on content

Graphics 9
Sound 10
Story 8
Gameplay 9
Controller Mechanics 8

Thank you for reading hope to write more in the future!

This game has it all. It has gorgeous graphics, an interesting/crazy story, a variety of missions and side quests, you could get lost for tens of hours in the single player alone.
