1UP:Far Cry 3 Review: Stumble in the Jungle

1Up:The premise of Far Cry 3 plays out like a fantasy from the darkest recesses of Nancy Grace's subconscious: seven wealthy, white Americans find themselves kidnapped by locals when their tropical vacation mistakenly dips right into the thick of civil war. With his friends kidnapped by an enigmatic slave trader known only as Vaas, protagonist Jason Brody must adapt to the harsh law of the jungle -- with the help of the native Rakyat people -- and forget his cushy Southern California lifestyle, if only until he makes an escape with friends in tow. Of course, as Brody goes to further lengths to reach his goals, he puts his humanity at risk, which paves the path for Ubisoft to craft a tale with themes ripped straight from the pages of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) B-/A+
