Far Cry 3 Review: Only the best shooter of the year | Globe and Mail

Globe and Mail: "This fall season has seen the release of several high-profile first-person shooters in the latest instalments of the Halo and Call of Duty franchises. Both are likely to break sales records, but neither is a good indicator of where the FPS genre as a whole is heading.

In a future where player choice and agency will be of paramount importance, the largely linear experiences continually being delivered by these two franchises will seem increasingly constrained and archaic. The genre is ripe and ready for a shakeup.

Far Cry 3, one of the best games of the year, may just be the game that does it." (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 10/10

yea i could see that would be pretty neat.

Why dislike an opinion? He used the word "neat" for f sake.

Anyway, all of these reviews are giving me plenty of confidence that this will be a massive improvement over FC2. Cant wait!

You make me want to vomit
Reverent  +   1009d ago
Hebrew Hammer, do you have like 5 separate accounts that you use to disagree with everyone who likes the Move? Either way, you're a serious troll and you need to be banned for comments like that.
PinkFunk  +   1009d ago
@Reverent,

I liked the Move with KZ3 and LBP2... but I still chuckled at Hammer's comment. Really think he should be banned for it? Think that's air you're breathing?

Hm.

Sarcasm doesn't seem to work on the internet, I guess.

@hebrew

Sarcasm like THAT really works with total strangers on a site like this. Where have you been?
showtimefolks  +   1009d ago

A very complete game overall.

I just hope it has a really good feel to it, exploring wise especially. I have high hopes for it being great.
ab5olut10n  +   1009d ago
GAH! I need to stop reading so much about this game
Hazmat13  +   1009d ago
must play this game.
Cajun Chicken  +   1009d ago
High hopes for this.
ShakesPub  +   1009d ago
Really excited about this game especially the map editor...
Nunchez  +   1009d ago
Another couple days! Definitely worth the wait though. Meanwhile I'll be getting my ass kicked on Hitman.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1009d ago
I love the scores this game is getting, hopefully it is as great as everyone is saying it.
Jonoc33  +   1009d ago
This game sounds amaaaazing
deletingthis34675334  +   1009d ago
I am impressed on how much improved this game is over FarCry 2. That game had a lot of potential completely ruined by a few major drawbacks like respawning checkpoints being on virtually every intersection but this game solved that. This and Boarderlands 2 are shooters worth playing from this year.
