PopBucket writes: The real achievement of Far Cry 3 then, is in its single player, which ultimately dispels the less impressive multiplayer. The island gallivanting experience is one to be cherished by all, but its ability to balance the fun of an open world, with the engagement of a linear blockbuster narrative makes it the great FPS success of 2012. While Halo 4 provided healthy competition, Ubisoft Montreal has meticulously crafted a detailed and thrilling world that is excitingly exotic and dead fun to play around in. Various side quests encourage this sense of exploration, while the search for hidden relics will entice committed players to explore every nook and cranny of the luscious and compelling landscape. The constant interaction between the small details of Rook Island with the main gaming element is what makes such a convincing experience in Far Cry 3.
