IGN's Best Overall Shooter Game

It's exceedingly rare to find a game that manages to successfully meld solid first-person shooting mechanics with a truly open world experience, but Far Cry nails both genres and combines them into one of the year's finest games.

I was nervous about the release of this game as I fell in love with it instantly when they showed Vaas explaining the definition of insanity.
Good job Ubi for making a thoroughly fantastic game.

I've never played a Far Cry game in my life but last week I went to my friends house and he had it so I gave it a go.. Wow.. I did not expect the game to be THAT good. I thought it would be meh its okay but I actually enjoyed the game.. a lot. Props to Ubi.

Everything in the game was awesome.. shooting mechanics, story, the island itself, hell even the soundtrack. And big props to the developers for FINALLY giving me an offline co-op option, not enough of those these days.

I would have bought this game a while ago. But the screen tearing on PS3 (or maybe just consoles in general) has put me off. I'm tired of buying into the hype, to only find out I've bought a shoddy product *cough* Skyrim *cough*.

I would agree on Skyrim but if you can get it on PC I honestly could not suggest a better game.

Blastoise1306d ago

I'd get it on PC if I could, but I don't have a gaming PC and my laptop can barely run minecraft lol.

Yep it does tear terrible & has bad jaggies on console, but like the other person says its great on PC, costs enough to play it maxed out, but if you want the best you have to pay for it.

Just wait a few months before getting it, those issues will mostly be patched out by then. I got skyrim on ps3 recently and the game runs just fine after the patches.

That's why I never get games around launch anyway. You can get a better game for a better price if you wait a while.

The last thrid of FC3 is really bad. I was sure this was in my top 3 games of 2012 before I finished it, but damn I just don't love it as much. Great game though, 2012 has been a strange year. Almost no one could wrap up their stories decently. The only games that I played this year that managed to wrap up their stories well, were walking dead and hotline miami.

Single player campaign wise, yes. But no where near close enough in the areas such as story or multiplayer.

In terms of gameplay regarding the campaign though, it is definitely brilliant and better.

Far Cry 3 > The world of video games

Halo 4, but its definitely shooter of the year. I enjoyed both but there's something special about far cry 3
