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!
Besides constant frame rate drops and a few bugs this game is one of the best single player games I've ever played. Multiplayer lacks heavily though and Co-op is repetitive and becomes a chore midway through the second mission.

Never played Farcry series before so thought it was just a shooter. Not so has a good story and free roam is always a plus especially when planning your attack on a base.
Bad parts are was not thrilled with weapons to start but you get used to them and then can get better later on. Base attacks were a little repetitious but still fun. I did get tired of having critters attack me when stalking a base. Those are just my preferences.
DO NOT READ FARTHER IF YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED SOME SPOILERS.
These are the parts that really bugged me.
Two major Boss battles and not realy battles just button mashing dream style stuff. Very unsatisfying.
Two endings both real let down. Won't say endings but I at least was unsatisfied. Great game but would not keep.
