Funny story, over a year ago when I heard Far Cry 3 was being pushed back to late 2012, I was frustrated. I was a big fan of the series and I wanted the game much sooner. It’s not GTA V or Skyrim, how much development time did Far Cry need, I thought. My copy arrived a week ago. I popped it in my Xbox and started up the game and within minutes it hit me: I have never played a game that used the delay so effectively. Every day I went without this game was worth it for what a superb piece of work Far Cry 3 turned out to be.
