Far Cry 3 Review | GamingTrend

GamingTrend writes:

"I’ll admit that Far Cry 2 didn’t really spin my crank. While I enjoyed the open African savanna setting, the game just didn’t snare me for some reason. It felt shallow, repetitive, and just somehow empty despite how vast it was. The enemies were ho-hum, and the malaria mechanic was irritating at best. When I saw the insanity-fueled performance of Michael Mando as antagonist Vaas, I knew that this was something special. The game kicks off with a whirlwind vacation video, showing protagonist Jason Brody and his friends having the time of their lives. Dancing, skydiving, cliff diving, riding jet skis, and drinking…it’s a damned shame that this is very quickly interrupted as we see it replayed on our cell phone for us as we sit captured in a tiger cage at the hands of Vaas – a sadistic warlord on the island. Jason is not Sam Fisher. He is not Ezio Auditore, Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad, he is no Jade, he doesn’t even qualify to hold “Ding” Chavez’s bag. Jason is just a normal guy with no combat skills, no special training, no firearms experience, and no real chance against true psychopaths like Vaas. Will he find determination enough to seek out friends on the island to turn the tide? Can he do what is necessary to save his friends before it’s too late? Welcome to the jungle – it’s about to get crazy." (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -

Just completed it. Game has a lot of good reviews and to begin with I agreed with them all. But once you reach the second island you have pretty much done everything there is to do (in terms of variety of stuff). I found myself exploring and doing all the missions and side bits on the first island, but as I got to the second I kinda just ignored the side stuff and just went for the story. Just how I felt, Still an enjoyable play though.

True, i found that the second island was for base jump infiltrations to silently sneak into the enemy strongholds. that was about t because i got all the towers which gave me all the weapons possible in order to do some crazy shit
