Skin Deep

Beauty is only skin deep, so while FC3 has some very beautiful graphics, it is infuriating to play. The save (NOT!) feature will rob you of stuff you did or got until you finally knuckle under and follow the bizarre saving rules. Do not attempt much autonomy either as this game likes to keep you busy and focused pretty much exclusively on their agenda, so that you are just mashing buttons on cue for the game makers' designs not your own determination of when you'll do what. Like Two Worlds 2 it has fake rock barriers you can't even try to climb over. Though it does have an excellent sniper rifle, you can shoot animals dead-on 5xs and they'll just run off wounded Also it is hard to relate to the story and characters unless you are an over privileged rich kid off on expensive adventure vacations and out messing with the stereotyped, indigenous folk who are mostly selling drugs or partying in the town square, or jammin' in shanty town to the jungle beat. Our hero is the usual stereotype, also, only younger and more inept. The game looks big until you explore and find out it isn't, but it is chock full of lovely animals you must kill and butcher to make your accessories/tote sacks, even though there is plenty of canvas lying around you could use. Basically, it is boring with more kill, kill, kill and little humor or music, interesting characters or FREEDOM to decide your own timeline. It has character issues and the driving is flinky, too. Frankly, except for the clean graphics, it felt like an old game. The old Just Cause 2 graphics and gameplay kicks FC2's butt. Fallout 4, Just Cause 3, we are waiting.....

i never played Far Cry 1. i played Far Cry2 and i thought it was great but Far Cry 3, is no less than perfect! i recommend this game to anyone who likes to shoot, explore, and a game that makes your heart pound everytime you heart a tiger growl or when you have to jump in water and an alligator grabs you as soon as you hit the water. this game is great all the way around! try it, youll definately like it! cant wait for the next one!
