Very Good

Prepare to be annoyed

VERY annoyed. When I saw the trailer for this game I thought Far Cry 3 would be like the coolest game ever. And 99% of gamefly user reviews basically say this is the coolest game ever. I'm part of the 1%. I don't remember screaming at the TV in frustration as often with any other game as I have with Far Cry 3. It's a lot like Assassin's Creed, not the story, but the gameplay. You climb radio towers in this game and instead of jumping off into a pile of hay like you do in AC, you use a zipline in far cry 3. Don't get me wrong, Assassin's Creed is one of the best video game series of all time. Far Cry 3 sucks. I'll spare you the details of this game and why it is annoying. I'll just say DON'T click keep. And be warned, Far Cry 3 might not meet your expectations.

Excellent

Not What I Was Expecting

But, in so many good ways. Playing Farcry 2, it left me a little uninterested in the series. Not that FC2 wasn't good, it's just that it didn't grab my attention the way 3 did.

The story in this is good. Not exceptional, but good. The characters are mostly predictable and trite. However, there are a couple of stand-outs. Buck, is an exception. And Vaas, whoever that voice-actor is needs a job in Hollywood because it was amazing.

The gameplay is also very good. Graphics are pristine, and it makes you want to explore every nook and cranny of the islands. Guns kick realistically and the sound is awesome.

Pick up this game folks you wont regret it.

Far Cry 3 is without question the best in the series, and a HUGE step in the right direction, from the seemingly endless collectables, to the amazing graphics. There's no reason not to love this game.

Outside of the lengthy and awesome story, Far Cry 3 offers an addicting Multiplayer and extremely fun co-op mode.

Personally, I finished the story and went through the co-op with a couple buddies, I found myself wanting more co-op missions, I didn't want the fun to stop, but there's always the endless Multiplayer fun and going back into the story to try and collect everything and max out your stats.

Games these days are pretty pricey and it makes you wonder if it's worth the 60$ price tag, with Far Cry 3.. There's no wondering, it's definitely worth the 60$, and if you have Gamefly, there is NO reason you shouldn't give this game a try.

PS: Michael Mando's performance and Vaas was the best in ANY game ever created, 10/10 performance and an instant classic villain.
