There really is something about this game that just wants to put the game down after playing for like 20 mins, I cant really explain it because it should be quite engaging, but unfortunately its not!

There really is alot to do but its just so boring,you can hunt animals get specials powers, free towns from captivity etc sounds interesting? I thought so too but its just unbelievably boring! Am very happy there is a Gamefly because I would be too upset if i had bought this game.

Rent do not buy for any reason!

I was a little surprised that this wasn't better considering all the hype and positive reviews. Right from the beginning, I wasn't able to play it on my ps3 at all because the far cry servers were down. (really?) I figured out eventually that it would let me play without the servers if I disabled my internet connection, but not before having to sit through the annoyingly long and unskipable intro about 4 times.

The game itself has a scenery style similar to "Just Cause" (without the cool grappling hook and parachute), the hunting and herb collecting of "Red Dead Redemption" and towers that unlock the map like in "Assassin's Creed". Those happen to be 3 of my favorite games, but oddly I don't like this one nearly as much as any of those... As a programmer myself, I imagine it being one of those situations where the management directs poorly, then when the deadline arrives, tells everybody to just wrap it up 'cause it's gotta go out the door.

In spite of all that, it's really not bad - The scenery is cool, the combat is pretty good and I always like when I get to sneak around - just not nearly as good as it could be.

No doubt that you'll have countless hours and fun with this game. The co-op should be something new adding it to make it more awesome. Maps for the mutilplayer looks amazing. The weapons look much improved from the previous title. Definitely worth a try. :)
