"The Far Cry franchise has come a long way since the release of Crytek’s original back in 2004. The series has seen a shift in focus as well as developers since its debut, losing some of its luster. Far Cry 3 attempts to remedy that by maintaining the open-world element from the previous game and also bringing it back to a setting similar to the original, resulting in a lush tropical island with plenty to do and explore. It won’t be long before you realize that this is a game that does everything it can to make sure you’re having a good time. Luckily for us, it succeeds more often than not."
