Far Cry 3 review round-up, best shooter 2012

A Far Cry 3 review round-up on MWEB GameZone

We finally have a review consensus from the world’s best video game journalists; Far Cry 3 is the shiz! In a nutshell, It has a dark story and exciting combat, delivers a strong narrative, it is the new apex predator of open-world shooters, chaotic yet controlled, and a wild ride worth taking.

Also, you do crafting in Far Cry 3, say what now? (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Far cry really the best shooter of 2012? I don't believe it, especially when there have been so many other great shooters released. I am going to have to give this a game a bash!

It's the only shooter so far that got a big YES from all the reviewers

@ omi25p

Halo 4 has nothing new, the story was questionable(good and bad to each their own), the music was new and at least cinematically up to a good par compared to this gen, the studio got their foot in the door to prove they can handle the license and series however.....Halo 4 is 'just another Halo game' basically.... Though its CG is definitely praise-worthy as well. Good dedication, and a great passionate team, clearly made it...

But this? The story is unique, the characters and world immerse you into the game and adventure. The visuals are grand and is in an open-world which, CLEARLY everyone can come to love an open world like GTA series or Farcry series. Choices and strategic abilities to play like what would be advertised in Crysis series, but done better due to less linearity.... Halo 4 was Destroyed by its repetitive mission structure of 'Go here, bomb this, twist this, repeat this' of killing a wave, doing a story, finishing a quest that seemed tedious or minimal.

Farcry 3 though?.... Only thing be trashed is Multiplayer. Those kind of things can be updated, revamped and changed for a better experience if the devs want to try or if they have the ideas and time, funding.

Therefore.....No, just no, Halo 4 has nothing on this game... Going to play the shit out of this during the Holidays.

This article made me realise how much I need a PC that actually does things! I get very excited about games that let me Role Play while shooting everything <3

The PC is still alive and well for gaming and I love the flexibility of it.

Black Ops 2 is a tad better than Far Cry 3, but there's no reason not to buy and experience FC3. It's definately a good thing to have as a novelty for when people ask if you have it.

Explain?

I wouldnt compare the 2, 1 is a linear more multiplayer focused game and the other is an open world single player focused game

Both are fps but i think they have enough differences to set them appart from what ive seen anyway

What!?
Why is black ops 'a tad better'?

Black Ops 2 = a Linear first person shooter singleplayer experience, with a mediocre multiplayer

Far Cry 3 = Amazing Single player experience with alot of a freedom, mediocre multiplayer.

Far cry 3 is original and new. unlike Bo2

Exactly what i was trying to say :3 agreed

What I like abt the FC franchise is how Ubisoft isn't afraid to try a new direction with each installment. The changes from 2 to 3 sounds really amazing.
