Far Cry 3 is the third title in the Far Cry franchise, though it is not a true sequel. It does not share any story or character elements with its two predecessors and can be played fully independently of them. What it does share is the same ethos: a dedication to providing a story-driven single-player experience within a sandbox environment, giving the player immense freedom in deciding how to proceed.
Far Cry 2 was heavily criticised for featuring a similar approach, but not doing enough with it. The game's annoyances - almost non-existent characterisation and of course the frequent road checkpoints with near-instantly respawning enemies which made travel across the map excruciatingly frustrating - overwhelmed the game's conceptual strong points, such as its 'buddy' NPC system and rich atmosphere. The designers of Far Cry 3 seem to have borne the previous title's problems in mind and provided a counter for every one of them whilst reinforcing those elements that did work. In short, Far Cry 3 finally fulfils the potential its predecessor squandered, and redeems the franchise.Read more ›
Any great, big, complicated, stuffed to the gunnels game is going to have problems, bugs, glitches, etc. are par for the course, then there are gameplay elements ported in from the console versions, QTE being a real bad example, having to mash a key repeatedly while under stress isn't fun... Its a job... Far Cry 3 makes a big mistake in QTEs which is to throw in a number of different keys so, say you get attacked by an animal, you will find yourself having to switch from the 'WADS' for movement to rapidly mashing 'c' or space randomly, its not great. And then there is the god awful checkpoint system... These two miserable aspects of play don't tarnish Far Cry badly enough to lose a star...
Now we have the soup out of the way lets move on to steak... The game itself, if your an old gamer, you might remember Hunter on the Amiga with some degree of love, the joy of the freedom of that game echos strongly in Far Cry, its a pure sandbox.
From the opening a strong story emerges that is reminiscent of The Beach and a bit of Lost, its a story that will suck you in, then you are left to run about one of the most incredible game worlds and you are gone... So is your life, time has no meaning, there is always a 'whats over that hill' or 'just one more outpost' before you pass out from sleep deprivation.Read more ›
Yes, that good. Really! I can't stop playing it even though I've completed the games story/plot line. It lets you carry on even when the story is complete!
Having been let down by so many 'Top' games over the past couple of years it really is a relief to find Far Cry 3 has renewed my faith in FPS games.
The story is like a film script/screen play. The animation is superb and the character acting excellent, especially the Vass character. You meet a lot of different 'interesting' characters as you progress, all well acted and animated.
Though there is a story and mass of missions to complete you can still roam the island and go hunting, both game and pirates. So you are relatively free to do as you want. Plus you get to amass many different weapons, skills and money.
The addition of so many living creatures on the islands really affects how the game plays, especially the predatory creatures. As well as looking out for pirates and mercenaries you have to constantly be aware of what is roaming around nearby e.g. tigers, bears, wild dogs and many more. You can be perched on a ridge overlooking a pirate camp planning your attack when suddenly you hear a roar or growl very close and realise you're in danger. So first priority is to remove the predator threat then get back to the mission in hand.
This all adds to the atmosphere of the game.
You can also drive different land vehicles, fly using a hang glider, parachute from the ski or later in the game use your flyin suit. Also boats, jet skis and more.
The story keeps you interested and never becomes dull with many objectives to complete and friends to be saved.Read more ›
