Why Far Cry 3 is the Real Assassin’s Creed Sequel

Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed III. Same publisher, same universe, different numeral system. But what if Far Cry 3 was the real Assassin's Creed sequel? Well, it kinda already is. (Assassin's Creed III, Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is when you look to hard for connections.

Far Cry 3 has its own problems. Sure it is better than its previous instalment that was just filled with bugs but its story , to me, was a step backward. It felt really immature and the twist felt forced and the whole ending situation made no sense (contextually)

The only reason really how I'd see FC3 as a successor to Assassin's Creed II (or the general Ezio saga) would be its stealth and additional combat options. ACIII was way too action-oriented.

But what else did you really expect Ubisoft to do with Assassin's Creed 3? Look at Revelations: The game had no revelations and didn't even move the plot forward at all, and the only decent part of Desmond's Journey was cut from the game and sold as an overpriced DLC package just so they could grab some extra cash from fans and say that the story is moving on. The fact that we've had Brotherhood and Revelations (2 additions to what has now become a 6-game, arguably 7-game, trilogy) shows their intent with the series, just keep dragging it on at this stage and keep making money. The ending was rushed and poor (as was much of the story, but considering the narratives of both ACIII and FC3 this isn't much of a surprise, Ubisoft don't seem capable of telling many good stories these days without making any "surprises" as obvious as possible and without using clichés and very typical plot elements as often as possible. This is where the series has been headed since Assassin's Creed II's success. I used to love Ubisoft but they're nothing more than money-grabbers to me any more.

I wish i would have skipped Farcry3 as well but sadly i bought it and was welcomed with an empty open world filled with repetitious sub missions and missions. Welcomed with a crappy garbage mp exp. smh.

I wish i would have never bought this game.

With games such as Ni No Kuni it makes you wonder how games like these get rated as high.

I thought it was one of the most convincing environments ever.

The water, the trees, the jungle, the ambient sounds, getting attacked by a shark, alligator, scared the piss out of me with my 5.1 cranked..

Forget the story, this was my goty based on environmental immersion only.

I was there, on the island as Jason.

Far Cry is milked?! On what planet is it milked? A major release every four years (FC - 2004, FC2 - 2008 and FC3 - 2012) is not milked

Far cry 3 has ac creed elements such as discovering the radio towers(view points in ac creed) etc.. but I wouldn't call it a sequel

He's probably counting far cry: Instincts, Evolution, Predator, Vengeance, and Paradise Lost, all released before far cry 2... I guess they were taking a page from capcom at the time.
