Quite simply one of the best games on Xbox 360!!,
This review is from: Far Cry 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
No need for me to go on and on about what this game offers in terms of storyline and what the game actually is as you can found this just by reading the breakdown on Amazon.
If you are familiar with Far Cry 2 then this is similar in play to that except instead of Africa it is a massive, and I mean MASSIVE, open world Tropical Island setting. There are nice added features though with the crafting, hunting (brilliant fun to creep up on a tiger with hunting bow in hand and deliver head shot!) and use of weapons which just enhances this game from Far Cry 2 (which was brilliant in itself anyway). Thankfully the minor bad points in 2 are addressed for example the vehicles are more durable in 3 and there are more safe houses that can automatically be jumped to without the long mission of driving/running to specific point in the map.
All I really need to say is this is quite simply one of the best games I have ever played; hours roll by when playing, I can immerse myself into a session quite easily which I can't with other games and not even realise 2 or 3 hours has gone by! I can't see how anyone could possibly be disappointed with this game if the purchase it, graphics-amazing, gameplay-long, interesting, easy to figure out and overall extremely fun which surely is the main reason for playing a game in the first place?!

Well it's been a few months and I'm still playing it! Only just onto the second island with the privateers and seems like it will be better than the first so in for treat. The value for money on this game is incredible. Haven't tried multiplayer and not likely to so unable to comment on this.

Totally agree with you, cracking Game but finding the plant collecting boring and missing the 'Diamond hunt' of Farcry 2!! Yet to try co-op or Multiplayer.

The plant collecting can get a bit tedious granted but I suppose its something a bit different. I find hunting the relics to be a bit tedious also but these small points hardly put a dent in an otherwise brilliant title. I'm still playing it to date and only on the second island even after hours of play time co there is just so much to get distracted by! Camp takeovers are my favourite bit of the game
