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.

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

FunkMacNasty1884d 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.

pangitkqb1884d ago

I expected a high score, but this is better than I imagined. Very excited for this.

Septic1884d ago

Wow. S#it just got real.

starchild1884d 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.

BattleAxe1884d ago

I am so relieved to see this game get a great score. Day one purchase for me!

knowyourstuff1884d 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!

WTF ?!! 10 out of 10 from Eurogamer oh sorry 8gamer ?!

guitarded771884d ago

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.

ShoryukenII1884d 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 Come1884d ago (Edited 1884d 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.

Knight_Crawler1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

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.

shempo1884d ago

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

Plagasx1884d ago

Woah woah woah...let's not go that far now..

grailly1884d 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_Sade1884d ago

For me, FC2 ranged in quality from the sublime to the ridiculously frustrating, with servings of each in almost equal measures.

Redgehammer1884d ago

FC2 is one of my favorite games, beating it on Hardcore took 50 hours. I am so excited.

shempo1884d 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.

Redgehammer1883d 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.

Zefros1884d 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).

NeoTribe1884d ago

You thought hitman would be better....

MidnytRain1884d ago

What on Earth possessed you to think this game would suck? This game looked stellar ever since E3.

Zefros1879d ago

Far cry 2 says hi :P,didn't even complete the game.

Blastoise1884d ago

Woooooah full marks. Gonna check this out
