I've been playing it for about 3 to 4 hours, can't quite remember..but so far it's been great. The story line isn't great, but it's still pretty good. I haven't gotten to deep into it. I've spent most of my time exploring the land and hunting animals for their skin to upgrade my items, which is pretty important.
The guns are fun to use. They feel realistic with the handling and they sound cool. No more jamming either(I kind of liked that from Far Cry 2)
The graphics are outstanding. It just cries out for exploration. The main characters look like some of the best yet while the other AI look good but not great. The enemy AI is also smarter than in previous Far Crys, they try to flank you when you're pinned down.
The sneak ability and the hunting(and the RPG aspect of the game) are so far my most favorite aspects of the game, rent it for sure!
I've played a ton of games in my life but this one is by far the best. You can play this game for hours on end and not want to quit. The cool thing about this game is you can continue to roam free after beating it. I give this game a 10/10.. like I said, one of the best/funniest games I've ever played in my 20 year game playing span!
Far Cry 3 is FANTASTIC, but its not to be compared to SKYRIM! Considering, i feel SKYRIM since its last 4 DLCs has gotten much better. So for now SKRIM is better than FAR CRY 3. Espeacially since in SKYRIM you put together your armor, your weapons, and your housing now. In the new, DLC you can build houses by harvesting WOOD, STEEL, and INGOT types. As well as DRAGON RIDING, and new fun magic, and armor to build up!
Also SKYIM now has far more beast and wild animal types including VAMPIRES and PART DOG/PART BOAR/ and PART BEAR type beast, (YES this is 1 beast that looks troll size to ride on but seriously had MATING ISSUES lol!) that can be riden, and is a lot of FUN!
FAR CRY 3 does NOT have a FIRE BREATHING DRAGON TO RIDE! Its got a hang-glider, custom guns from hunting animals or treasures, and outposts to take by yourself. Never do you feel in control of the stories outcome as you do in SKYRIM every STEP!
FAR CRY 3's equal to SKYRIM in sence of MAP SIZE, but NOT in DEPTH! As well as the low quality hunting feature in FAR CRY 3, compared to hunting DRAGONs and TROLLS and such...with different approaches as well, SKYRIM is way more SEXY! LASTLY outposts are also in comparison to SKYRIMs and equaly as FUN to takeover as SKYRIMs outposts due to FAR CRY 3s new STEALTH GAMEPLAY! Although no DRAGONS will come down EPICLY to tear everyone apart including you LOL! Hope everyone RENTs this at the LEAST! Its FUN just not in comparison to SKYRIM as of NOW, as you can SEE!
I would recommend BUYING SKYRIM if you still havent and instead of purchasing FAR CRY 3...purchase the new 4 DLC's for SKYRIM tha have made it so much better than what those of you think it still is since it came out! THEN ULL NOTICE FAR CRY is way behind in comparison to SKYRIM!
OVERALL if you've played the SKYRIM recently with its new DLC PACKS SKYRIM has far better content and ill be purchasing SKYRIM since i love the new DLC on it. As described here
