StickSkills said, "Of course, Far Cry 3 is much more than just a pretty face. This open-world journey through the jungle is filled to the brim with compelling content that’s begging to be played, and while the story never quite realizes the potential established in the intriguing premise, it’s difficult to think of a reason to not play this December blockbuster. Ubisoft has managed to fit a full shooter campaign into one of the largest open worlds ever conceived – giving players a more guided experience to enjoy when not collecting pelts or driving through the perilous roads of the wild. Far Cry 3 has the personality that’s been lacking in this tropical franchise, and that results in a game you’ll want to spend some serious time with. Grab a bow, holster your pistol and take this plunge into insanity."
