A Worthwhile Purchase
on 3 December 2013
I owned this game about 4 years ago and I absolutely loved it. I can't remember why now, but I sold it year or so later. I regret selling it, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to buy it again.
Far Cry was always a great series. It's the kind of first-person shooter you just don't see around anymore. A solid campaign and really fun split-screen multiplayer, even more enjoyable when playing online. The level design in campaign is superb. It's not an open world game, but it certainly feels that way. You never really feel confined or limited as you make your way through a level. There's plenty of opportunity for stealth, while also catering to those who rather go in all guns blazing.
The multiplayer is incredibly fun. I much prefer this system of multiplayer - no classes or preset loadouts. Everyone starts the same and must use the guns available on-map instead. Vehicles in mutliplayer makes for a far more entertaining experience too. And with a creative community utilizing Ubisoft's powerful map-maker, there are plenty of maps to keep you occupied.
