Far Cry 3 Review | Paste

Paste has harsh words for Far Cry 3. (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5.5/10

Are you kidding me?
Does this sound like a quote from a 5.5 review to you?

"Everything that Far Cry 3’s single-player campaign does well, from the large open world to the emergent gameplay, was done just as well in Far Cry 2. Far Cry 3 recreates why people loved to play Far Cry 2, and you’ll no doubt read many permadeath diaries and tense dispatches from breathless correspondents who parachuted off a waterfall before killing fifteen guys with a bow and punching a komodo dragon. Focus on that part of the game and you’ll love it."

The guy's only real problem is the narrative and character development, which in my opinion, shouldn't knock off so many points from a game he clearly enjoyed

The reviewer is entitled to his opinion in his own review. But when he does state a huge chunk of paragraph filled with positive comments, he cant go and contradict himself with an outlandish score.

At least make the score reasonable. Or keep their reviews consistent with the score.

Paste is the taste that is left in your mouth as you come across hit seeking waste in your haste to read news that left you disgraced at the 'journalism' that needs to be replaced by something that isn't defaced where objectivity and integrity is embraced.

Always has to be a CRAP REVIEWER from a CRAP SITE to try to get hits and bring down the meta-critic score. Lame site like this do it for every game it seems these days. I know they have their right to an opinion but when it hurts the game then they should not be able to spread there lame excuses for articles.

Huh???????????

The review makes it sound great except for being a "real world" cast member. Thats the only criticism that they made. Maybe they hit "5" by mistake and meant 9.5?? 8.5??

do not click. just looking for hits.

this game is minimum 7. personally I havent enjoyed an FPS single player campaign this much since Bad Company 1.

I give it a 9, only because the missions are a bit limiting in area and not open world like the rest of the game. but at least it lets you know when you are going into a mission area. but running away is a perfectly good real world strategy which is prevented in this scenario.

At least it has a story, FC2 was a mess that nobody cared about. Just a brown boring mess.

FC3 changes all that, with good missions, fun gameplay, sweet graphics, engaging sound fx. If your good at FPS, make sure you go with hard mode, otherwise it will be too easy.

This game could have been a Rambo game.

Enjoy

The game its not optimize for PC,runs like shit on consoles,unless anyone likes to play a game with horrible framerates and very huge screen tearing like it is on consoles!?Lets be honest,this game should have been release on the next gen of consoles,because it runs very bad has it is, on every systems!Yes it looks great, wonderfull but runs like a piece of crap so i think the score is well given because a game is a conjunction of all the parts that make him,and not only a graphic set for graphic whores to adore!

Is that score for farcry3 or the article? Coz farcry3 is a solid 9/10 where as this article is a turd, 1/10.

Far Cry 3 is my personal GotY and I'm sure it is for many others as well.

Far Cry 2 isn't even in the same league as FC3. FC3 does everything bigger and better.

What a waste.
