MasonicGamer.com: Ubisoft Montreal developed Far Cry is back in a tropical paradise after exploring the African wilderness in Far Cry 2. Starting off more like a feature film than a video game, Far Cry 3 sees Jason Brody and his group of friends on vacation who are then captured by Vaas Montenegro, the leader of a group of pirates working for a slave trafficking ring. Jason barely escapes with his brother Grant but not before he’s shot in cold blood by Vaas. Alone and running through the jungle Jason now seeks to rescue his friends. The heavy sci-fi aspect of the first game is gone and in its place is a story of drug-running pirates, a local resistance force and an unlikely hero. All of this is set in an open-world environment that pretty much allows you to explore at your own pace.
