Ken McKown writes: It is amazing one installment in a series can turn around the entire franchise. I have been a silent fan of Far Cry since its inception. I loved the first game on PC, then the 360 and Wii iterations kind of soured me on the experience. Far Cry 2 came along and was chock full of so many good ideas, but poor execution made it a chore to play. With Far Cry 3, I was skeptical. The whole “fool me twice, shame on me” mentality set in. Thankfully, after spending countless hours on Rook Island, I can safely say that Ubisoft has nailed it with this iteration. In fact, it may easily top my game of the year list come late December; it truly is that good.
