"Crytek’s original Far Cry game was praised for its beautiful tropical island environments. For the sequel, Ubisoft Montreal took over development and changed up the formula quite a bit. The game was more realistic, and there was a new story, new characters, new gameplay features, and most noticeably, the setting was moved to central Africa.
For the third core installment, Ubisoft Montreal brings back and builds upon many of the well-received features from their first stab at the series, but takes Far Cry 3 back to its roots on a lush tropical setting, this time embracing the theme of insanity. How does Far Cry 3 stack up against other shooters and open-world games, and is it the best game in the series?"
