A great game!,
This review is from: Far Cry 3 Classics (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I loved playing this game. It seems to have a little influence from Assasin's Creed (climbing the radio towers) and Tomb Raider (climbing up ledges and inside caves to reach relics). I don't normally bother looking for 'hidden packages' such as the 120 relics, but for some reason I found it very satisfying in this game. Even if the map tells you where a relic is, it is often quite puzzling to actually figure out how to get to it.
Obviously the main part of the game is the combat, which is also very enjoyable. I found the different strategies for taking an outpost to be very fun (e.g. sniping from a distance, or freeing a captive animal and watch it cause havoc, or sneaking around taking out enemies one by one).
The other point I'd mention is that the scenery is probanly the most beautiful I have seen in a game. The pink sunset was literally breath-taking when I saw it for the first time. And the moonlight reflecting on the water, together with the roar of waterwalls and the background noise of the jungle create a great atmosphere. You can be walking along a path and suddenly a deer will run out of the bushes being chased by a tiger. It all goes to create the feeling of a living world.
I was sad to finish it. Buy it - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
