Far Cry 3 Review | Splitkick.com

Splitkick: Far Cry 3 is about brutality, and losing yourself to it when survival is all you have left. Powerful performances make you care about each character initially, but the sheer enjoyment of hunting, of taking over enemy camps, and of scouting for new territory to dominate, means that you become far more absorbed in the island and its nature than you do the plot. This is an absolute triumph, and makes it one of the few games I have ever played in which the gameplay is entirely joyous, but also the complete mirror of one powerful theme. Remember how every action in BioShock felt like it had to be weighed against the nature of your character and the world around him? Yeah, Far Cry 3 is that good. (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10
