'Far Cry 3' fun despite all the walking | LVRJ Review

"Far Cry 3" is a good outing for players who dig on sandbox routines and don't mind walking and knifing goats, dogs and leopards to death before bending down to slice off their skins and leave their meat to rot.

The story is too old to be commented.

There are vehicles everywhere in this game. Grab one

True but you have to admit there could of been a bit more variety, motorbikes or BMXs for examples

Maybe some hidden easter egg cars...a ferrari, a Monster truck, a DeLorean or hell maybe some planes/helicopters there was airstrips in the game and the map was big enough I mean who would of really landed these things properly.

Cars just seemed to be boring after a while and some of them going over small hills would break very easily, some of the cars can't even make it up small hills, they roll make down despite having a good run up to it.

The only thing I could nitpick about this game is that you can't switch between your four weapons with the triangle/Y button, you can only switch through two which gets annoying at times.

In the Bush, very few, if anyone, uses bikes or things that you have listed. Most are jeeps for the purpose of getting into a vehicle very fast (for wild animals, gunshots, or to quickly grab something from your vehicle. Bikes aren't a good block from charging animals or intimidates them as much. Bikes provide little protection from bullets. Bikes are a quick get-on but unless you drive on 100% mapped roads, a bike can easily leave you stranded deep into the bush in a very short amount of time, which is dangerous.

This is a bicycle, but here is the concept put to real-world application:

It is madness to disrespect the power of any animal in it's own environment.

The second reason is that supplies are hard to store on a bike (gas, guns, food, spare tires). A car doesn't have the suspension to drive in the environments that they will be subjected to. Monster trucks aren't used much for work vehicles because of the difficulty of getting things out or jumping in. Jeeps are also used because you can see into the vehicle before you go in, which minimizes the chance that you will have to deal with an animal that got in when you weren't looking; plus, since it's open, the animal has a wide array of exits, of which the animals usually will choose flight over fight.

Planes are quick transport vehicles which still requires a runway and are not recommenced for non-runway use except for seasoned professionals, of which a fair amount still die from crashes. Runways aren't in abundance in the bush. Helicopters aren't good ambush vehicles and can be seen and heard from a long distance away; furthermore, since they are slower moving, they are easier to shoot down.

I was gonna say the same thing, there's cars and junk everywhere, aswell as alot of fast travel points. derpy ass article title.

Agree, fast travel, water and land vehicles, and wingsuit+parachute, and some ziplines.

I'm glad he didn't play STALKER Call of Pripyat. He'd have a bad day with all the walking in that game.
