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.

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.
