Far Cry 3 thrusts players into a beautiful and deadly world full of so many things to do; you’ll be hard pressed to even move forward in the story. Ten hours in and was barely a quarter of the way through the story missions because so much time was spent hunting, exploring, completing side missions and upgrading my character!
The story of Far Cry 3 is something to experience, though it is pretty hit or miss. You control Jason Brody – a spoiled rich kid on vacation with his brothers and friends. After getting captured by the resident psycho of the island, Vaas, who wants to ransom Jason and then sell him on the black market, Jason escapes by the skin of his teeth. Jason vows to find his friends and get off the island. The story plays out like a very generic revenge tale but the place that it stands out the most is in its secondary characters, starting with Vaas.
