5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for <30! GOTY! 9.8/10 30 Nov 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fantastic. It takes the best ideas from FC1 & FC2 and molds them into something more satisfying than the sum of its parts.

I haven't tried multiplayer yet so my experience refers to the single player campaign.

The first thing which hits you is how cinematic the start is. You're immersed in a Blockbuster from the word go. The voice-acting and the emotion conveyed by the virtual actors is first-rate - Vaas is an unhinged psycho who will shoot you in the face on a whim - the others are as believable as any I've seen.

Once the initial tutorial sections are over with, you're released in a free-roam, GORGEOUS world when you're as likely to die from a bullet in the face as the horns/claws/teeth of some irate jungle-island fauna - and that goes for the enemy! Several times I've been stealthing up to some fools when they've started shooting at the Komodo dragons I didn't notice slinking around in the grass adjacent to me. This world is alive; tigers sprint through a jungle clearing after Tapir , Leopards tackle deers on the beach, bull sharks melt into the shallows menacingly.

I could literally play FC3 for a month without touching the main story-line there's that much to do.

Each animal you kill, whether by bullet, knife or - my favourite - the bow and arrow - can be skinned. You'll need different skins to make different things - a larger loot sack, a larger ammo belt - a larger arrow bag. Plants too can be collected to make syringes which heal you or heighten your senses.

the adventure starts as soon as you leave one of the safe villages, you'll find animals, enemies to fight and things to climb for the hell of it or to unlock areas of the map.

There are better and more expressive reviews than mine,buti would just like to add that the game delivers everything that was promised, Graphics are superb, and the missions show some real flair from the designers (must have been eating the mushrooms)It requires a bit of PC power,but for a game like this it almost deserves buying a new PC just to play it..Some people have had minor glitches with sound and stuff but i am sure they will be patched soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far Cry 3 Insane Edition 3 Dec 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Man I love this game!

I was a big fan of the original FC on the xbox, Naturally I got FC2 on the PC but was not really impressed. The game looked great and had the illusion of being a big game but let down by constant battles at every road junction,my gripes were the same as most others.

FC 3 however addressed all that and has made possibly one of the best games I have ever played. The place is alive and vibrant. Of course it's a game and as such has flaws like most others. Not enough voice variation all the enimies dress the same. Aside from that the game does very well to keep you entertained.

I never get the feeling I'm being pushed to do the main story which is good because in these types of games I tend to go off on one just heading in whatever direction I feel like gives a real sense of it being huge.

I love the hunting. I feel like Diago in Ice age when he learns to swim saying to myself out loud "stalking the prey" :)

I've not tried the MP but I will ge to that once I Have done the main missions.

All in all this is a great game with very little to be dissapointed about. Insane edition for 30 is awesome!.

Recently I have Hitman 3 Cssassins Creed 3 and Far Cry 3. All great games but this one has held my attention the longest in 1 sitting.

I've had no issues with crashing or major glitches on the PC version. No frame rate drops.

Running I7 ivy@3.5 8Gb DDR3 RAM with gtx 670 on ultra settings. Graphically Hitman is superior but I don't find it a problem or a let down.

Hope this helps

Edit:

Reached about half way through and I didn't think it possible but it get's even better still throwing supprises at me and by far the most gripping story of any game in 2012 possibly longer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Should have been the GOTY 25 Dec 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
I'm buying around 10 to 15 games a year and Far Cry 3 as been the best acqusition for me in 2012. The island is so gorgeous, the story is well made and the characters are adictive.

It takes a good computer to be able to play FC3 at max settings but, it worth the expenses. I just hope that Ubisoft will push this game further with tons of DLC's.

Some peoples are whinning that FC3 is getting boring after a while. This is what i have to say to these gamers...take your time to appreciate FC3. Don't try to finish it it a day. You will miss tons of goodies like the beauty of the graphics, the environement, the different way to do mission. I can assure you that i will restart the single player campaign more then once.

For me, it deserve. 5 stars. Good job Ubisoft Montreal! Once again, you prove that you're one of the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing open world FPS 30 Nov 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got the game early (Thursday). The installation was quick took about 5 minutes and unfortunately you have to register it with uplay (IT SUCKS) account which is bad but im reviewing the game right?

So as soon as i lunched the game there was an update about 100mb then i was ready to go then i went straight for the Multiplayer.
The servers as you may know are rubbish (like any other ubisoft game) and it took something like 1 hour to get me to the game!

The multiplayer is mehhh i mean its basically same as other fps shooters. you create your class you got perks , something called ''Battlecry'' (dont really know what it is) equipments and secondary. you can unlock attachment for guns by getting kills with em and you have killstreaks! its fun , i mean its ok but single player is the main reason why i got this game.

The single player is epic (only managed to do 4-6 missions) and INSANE ! the colours , the wildlife the characters are simply amazing. and oh one thing you must know about this game that its GPU hungry so make sure you have a good graphics card like gtx 670 or 680.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARND CASH FOR CALL OF DUTY CRAP GET FARCRY 3 (and Hitman, dont forget the Hitman!) INSTEAD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
Now where should I start: Far Cry Original was a great game. Far Cry 2 was just plain stupid and with Far Cry 3 we really hoped something is coming along better, how wrong I was.
