Eurogamer: Far Cry 3 Review

Eurogamer:There are lots of things to celebrate in Far Cry 3, Ubisoft's best game since Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, but the thing I keep coming back to is Rook Island itself. There's often a lot of unremarkable space in open-world shooters, but this vast, mountainous patch of fictional grass and rock in the middle of the Pacific has been created by people who believe that every inch is important, and who have refused to compromise or sculpt any part of it with less than an artist's attention to detail. (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 10/10

SPOILERS!

There are side missions where you burn down weed crops while this song is blasting in the background

This game is going to be f**king awesome
FunkMacNasty  +   1011d ago
What!? I dont wanna burn down weed crops, unless they're wrapped in a Dutch Master!!!

All jokes aside, despite it's shortcomings here and there, Farcry 2 was one of my favorite games this gen.. REALLY can't wait for this one!

Congrats Ubi? My 360's disc drive broke so I'll probably get it on PC. A 10 from Eurogamer? History has been made, lol.

I expected a high score, but this is better than I imagined. Very excited for this.
Septic  +   1011d ago
Wow. S#it just got real.
starchild  +   1011d ago
This game wasn't under the radar for me at all. I thought it looked amazing for a long time.

I can't wait to play it maxed out on my PC.
BattleAxe  +   1011d ago
I am so relieved to see this game get a great score. Day one purchase for me!
knowyourstuff  +   1011d ago
Holy crap, a 10 from eurogamer? I've never seen that since GTA 4, amazing! Looks like those few extra months were well spent to make sure the game was perfect! Way to go Ubisoft!
Walker  +   1011d ago
WTF ?!! 10 out of 10 from Eurogamer oh sorry 8gamer ?!

Yeah, the game is getting awesome reviews... my most anticipated FPS of 2012, but IMO there is no such thing as a perfect 10, but for Eurogamer to give it a 10 it must be amazing.
ShoryukenII  +   1011d ago
I wasn't interesting in this game before but now I want to know a bit more about it. All I know so far is that it is open world and has a woman who is topless, which makes this game a no go for me... Hopefully, Eurogamer is right about this one though. After all, Eurogamer also gave Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood a 10/10.
Kingdom Come  +   1011d ago
An astounding achievement by Ubisoft, especially when considering the hate directed towards them regarding Far Cry 2. The game looks stunning, immersive and fun. I can't wait for release date to arrive.

Agreed! For some reason I am excited for this game than I am for GTA5.

Edit: I am still excited about GTA 5 but after playing GTA 4 which is the only GTA game that I never completed.

y gta 4 was the worst of the series and had the lamest piece of trash protagonist ever

san andreas for me stay the best gta

Woah woah woah...let's not go that far now..
grailly  +   1011d ago
I'll wait for the hype to settle down and see what people think after that. FC2 got some good reviews to.
Marquis_de_Sade  +   1011d ago
For me, FC2 ranged in quality from the sublime to the ridiculously frustrating, with servings of each in almost equal measures.
Redgehammer  +   1011d ago
FC2 is one of my favorite games, beating it on Hardcore took 50 hours. I am so excited.
shempo  +   1011d ago
far cry 2 was lame
the stupid pills u needed to take was annoying

and also the enemies u killed respawn right front of you....u just need to turn your back and walk 10meters away and return.
Redgehammer  +   1010d ago
I liked having to fight Malaria, it put an extra challenge in the way I played. As for the enemies, I only ever saw cars pull up with repkacement soldiers, but hey your not liking it is your perogative, and has no bearing on my experience.
Zefros  +   1011d ago
WOW!!!!! must buy then, damnit i tought i would suck, so i bought hitman instead, looks like i need to buy this one too ( probably my last game this year).
NeoTribe  +   1011d ago
You thought hitman would be better....
MidnytRain  +   1011d ago
What on Earth possessed you to think this game would suck? This game looked stellar ever since E3.
Zefros  +   1007d ago
Far cry 2 says hi :P,didn't even complete the game.
Blastoise  +   1011d ago
Woooooah full marks. Gonna check this out
Lovable  +   1011d ago
This game looks absolutely amazing
Hufandpuf  +   1011d ago
I always knew this game was going to be critically acclaimed. Nice to see Farcry get things right this time around!
ApolloTheBoss  +   1011d ago
Well damn, Ubisoft!!
Walker  +   1011d ago
Best visual of the year ! even better than halo 4 !

???

What's the point of comparing this to Halo 4?
Lovable  +   1011d ago
Could be because Halo 4's the only game that showed visual fidelity this year.
Locksus  +   1011d ago
@Lovable

The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition is a damn fine looking game on the 360 too!
pandehz  +   1011d ago
Ummm lol both seem like good games and are worlds apart besides being fps

Visual? Its too broad a term. Visual experience,graphics, art style all different and will differ depending on the kind of game.

Open world vs linear not a good comparison. Also differing themes and setting

for console nope.
anw next year we all know the game who will win the most awards are the last of us
kingslayer1000  +   1010d ago
halo never looked good, and never will
despair  +   1011d ago
wow, when eurogamer gives a 10/10 its usually a street fighter game...impressive.
Sizzon  +   1011d ago
Can't wait, a clear underdog shooter this year!
ApexHell  +   1011d ago
i didnt even know farcry 3 was coming out this holiday season wtf
BushLitter  +   1011d ago
Exactly. Can't believe a game like this is flying so low under the radar. It's ranked 25 on N4G according it's heat meter (whatever). That's just crazy. People just don't seem that interested.

I really hope this game does well commercially, so more developers realise that gamers don't really need re-hashed shooter tropes to satiate the shooter-fix.

All the best.

josephayal  +   1011d ago
Eurogamer 10/10? damn maybe the best game in human history

pc version looks like gods day dream.

theEx1Le  +   1011d ago
Wow, definitely have to be getting the PC version, that looks insane.
MRMagoo123  +   1011d ago
the pc version is free too
theEx1Le  +   1011d ago
@MRMagoo123, Not if you want MP its not.
Dr Face Doctor  +   1011d ago
This is a very promising review to see coming from a publication that dishes out (perfectly valid) 8's to otherwise critically acclaimed games.
iistuii  +   1011d ago
Ive pre ordered it on pc & cant wait, however 10/10. Means perfect, yet the multiplayer isn't up to much according to most other review sites & the Eurogamer reviewer didn't spend much time with it, so giving a perfect score seems a little Ott. Glad it's great mind.
a_bro  +   1011d ago
what!??????????!??!?!?!?! THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY!!!!!!!!!
Tzuno  +   1011d ago
Hold your horses there boy 10/10 GTFO.

Valenka  +   1011d ago
While I'm thrilled to hear that, I have never experienced a game in my years that was a perfect 10/10.
Kingdom Come  +   1010d ago
10/10 doesn't always mean a perfect game.
Statix  +   1011d ago
I've been waiting for this game for literally years! A definite GOTY contender in my book.
kudakadere  +   1011d ago
10/10 ......Did i ever tell you the definition of insanity ?.
-Gespenst-  +   1011d ago
Jeez, this game is straight cleaning up. Might have to get it at some point.
modesign  +   1011d ago
ummm, why is farcry getting a review 2 weeks before release
YoungKingDoran  +   1011d ago
because ubisoft are confident in their product??
deletingthis34675334  +   1011d ago
This game is getting very positive reviews, a bit the contrary of what I was expecting. I didn't like the second game for a plethora of reasons but the respawning checkpoints alone was enough to ruin a potentially somewhat enjoyable game for me, and Unisoft is getting it right with this game. Needless to say, I am really looking forward to this.

So far the lowest score i've seen is 8.5 so i'm guessing this game is good.
