i like the game but it feels so different from 2 that I can't seem to get into it like I did the others. I feel like they coppied way to much of assassins creed and put it in this game. So my opinion is this game isnt bad but feels to much like the game I already love. Some animals just take far to much to kill and can blow your cover when u need to be sneaky and relentlessly attack and make u waste your ammo on them. Game is worth playing but not what was expected.

The game play is the same as FarCry 2 as well as the driving, interaction with people. I like the hunting feature, but the crafting becomes so tiresome. The graphics are better, but there is too much clipping and glitching. I rented the game from here, so I played as much as I could. I never finished it, as you could go on forever till you are bored to tears from the same thing over and over. I didn't finish it, because as I was set to go get the last 2 bad guys, I had to become a "warrior" and well, it became so dumb that I just gave it up. All the drug trips are unnecessary and rather nauseating in it's movement. I would give it many stars for originality, but again, I think FarCry 2 was much better.
I honestly never played the previous two Far Cry games but I really wish I did. Far Cry 3 did not disappoint me from beginning to end! The controls were pretty flawless once I learned the layout and the graphics never ceased to amaze me of the vast landscape. The storyline was very captivating and kept me entertained with twists here and there. Have to agree that this game will take awhile if you try to do all the quests/side missions/finding all treasures/relics. I can say honestly that it might be first game that I didn't blaze through while still going at a fast game pace. So much to do and explore around the map. Definitely would recommend to anyone interested in FPS/adventure games, will suck you right in. Can't wait for Far Cry 4 and the plot they will be bringing to the table...plus new weapons & tactics!
