Far Cry 3 Review | The Guardian

The Guardian: "Not only is the single-player game huge, but it's backed up with pretty tidy co-operative and multiplayer modes. Far Cry 3 may chart the holiday from hell, but for any fan of open-world shooters, it will feel like the best holiday ever from the drudge of daily life." (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5/5

I was reluctant on getting this because I didn't much care for Far Cry 2...but when I watched more gameplay footage, read more about it, and heard it being described as "Like Skyrim with guns," I was officially sold.

Skyrim with guns= fallout

Machinima really f**ked up with that quote

Skyrim with guns = skyrim with guns
I always disliked describing Fallout as Oblivion/Skyrim with guns, because it doesn't do the game justice at all. They really are completely different games.

That Skyrim with guns quote is really bad...it isn't an RPG. It's an action game with some exploration involved. There is a huge difference.

People will buy this after hearing that and be shocked at the lack of RPG features. Don't know why they are running with that quote...

Other than that, I kept my pre-order because of how amazing this game looks + the map editor is a legit map editor and not some mild map changer.

I got my copy for 360 today, it's not Skyrim with guns by any means, it's Far Cry but with a lot of video gamey elements thrown in, the crafting and perks are one thing but the side missions and trials are something else. The reviews are all pretty much spot on, it's a very good game, very immersive, challenging and interesting, though as yet I've not been able to get a game in MP, just no one online at present.

I like all the nearly perfect reviews, this must be a good game for their to be this many positive impressions and barely any negative.

Makes the free FarCry 3 code I got with my graphics card purchase really worth it!
