Just click "Keep" . This title really delivered a spectacular World of Insanity. As many other titles had a high-hype value and made people angry after seeing it. Farcry 3 delivered what was expected and more.
The title plays as a adventure, Free Roam, in first person. One of the most repayable titles out there.

You play as Jason Brody...
Jason was the average college kid, fresh out of school, and seeing the world with his friends. His world crashed into another reality of human trafficking and black market smuggling. Too save himself and his friends, Jason will have to test his own abilities or die trying.

I am not sure how I should even begin to explain how well made this game is... Very nice eye-candy. A game world full of depth and life,seeming very vast and endless.
You will first notice the new climbing mechanics and cover-system ... You can now climb on numerous types of surfaces and cover-firing has been integrated... It adds a great depth of realism into the farcry title. They have radio stations in the vehicles now.

Requires Online pass.

Farcry 2 was a huge success from its Map editor... The map editor allows you to build your own level... Terrain sculpting -- Create mountains, vallies hillsides.
Building layout -- Place a variety of buildings in your own way.
Foliage placement - Grass, rocks, trees layout.
Share and play your map in the online community.

The Map editor has a larger scale than Farcry 2's maps... You can now create cliffs with Waterfalls... The new water layering allows that. They also added lighting abilities.

Ubisoft did a brilliant job... The Single player shines great in this title and it too has a high replay value.

This title is a definite keep... It is perfect in many ways and really is hard to place any dislike in the title. It is sorta easy though as I'm playing on Hardest difficulty, but then that is just the well made AI dynamics. You can play with stealth in this title.

Buy this game.

I really enjoyed playing this game. I found myself not following the story line after the first few quests and going out to kill/skin animals for crafting all my bags and liberating the camps, then going back and doing story line after storyline quests where I could fast travel to where I needed to go.

Had a great time playing this game. Plenty to do, didn't even do any of the online aspects of the game.

Had not previously played the first two farcrys. I am initially drawn to good story, and really talented voice work. Vaas is an amazing villian. The letdown is that the main boss is so drab and boring...Vaas seems like he should have been on meds years ago, he's a loose cannon, unpredictable and that makes him exciting to watch. The open world activity is enjoyable, and Vaas should easily win villian of the year hands down.
