‘Far Cry 3’ is pretty good — except for all the foot-traveling and goat-killing

When was the last time you walked 34 miles over nine hours? Yeah, I bet never, because that sounds awful. Yet, that’s how many miles I walked in nine hours in “Far Cry 3.”

Good read, some good points. Turning on power to access new areas sounds a bit inFamous but it worked there too. At the start of the article i was thinking 'gunna give this a miss', but by the end I was convinced, it's an expensive time of month to buy for myself but I'm doing it!

The whole turning on the power did seem to be like infamous lol I mean how basically the whole land is dark in the map and once you turn on the power it reveals all the plants and stores you can do. This game is amazing though. Didn't really expect much from it since it was my first far cry game that I played.

If I can only fast travel to work

I don't like "Fast Travel," Anymore in RPG type games. It just takes me out of the game when I use it and I am glad that Farcry3 actually makes you walk most of the time seeing as how you're in a jungle basically and there shouldn't be a paved road everywhere you need to go.

Heck before I stopped playing Skyrim and give it some time off to play other games I never fast traveled anywhere..did it get boring having to walk sure I won't lie but I have more fun walking their taking in the atmosphere and actually feel like I'm in the game then...pushing start , looking at the map and pushing A to fast travel.

Next generation consoles can fix this problem , just 2 steps :
) lower the loading time ..
) developers can make fast travel points a little far from the objective ,if they organize them in a right way it will make you enjoy exploring the map in a fun way ..

Almost half the time you play open worlds is gone because of loadings and people say they are not ready for next generation -.-

.......OR...... They could give the option to fast travel as they do now........

No-one is forcing anyone to use it. I agree, sometimes it is better walking (immersion and so on), but what about when you just want to sit down for a couple of hours and play the game? Being forced to walk 500 miles (.......) would seem too much a chore.

The walking bit is the essence of the game you clown. Getting from A-B avoiding patrolling pirates and tigers just to finally stand atop that large hillside and look down upon a pirate outpost is what the game is all about. The reward then is liberating the outpost and gaining an extra fast travel
location. The missions are the cinematic set pieces but the real meat of the gameplay is travelling across a jungle infested island and exploring, you know the thing that games like call of duty don't give you and not many games do anymore until far cry 3 came along.

Best game of 2012 IMO, also the travelling isn't much because you usually get occupied whilst travelling on foot, for e.g there was a small group of bad guys and I was going to take them out but suddenly four Komodo dragons appeared and killed them all for me :D

I quite like the trevelling and exploring. Farcry 3 is quite a beautiful game, you come accross landmarks and think "wow" in this game.

There's always plently to do, and if you want to, you an always take a car! :P

Great game, first FPS SP that I've enjoyed for a long time.

I wish more games gave you this much freedom, instead of feeding you repetitive set pieces over and over again.

A lot of gamers are clever people, we want o figure it out by ourselves, not shit there and just hold down the trigger.
