The islands themselves are Far Cry's breakout stars, and what makes the game so enthralling is the constant sense of fear that exploring them provokes.
The game is fantastic. The only thing sucks about it is the Co op. I didn't bother with the MP though.
I do wish the coop was more like the SP, however it's still fun. I recommend it for sure. My friends and I had lots of fun with it. The MP is well done.... however I'd rather play the SP.
The coop needs a lot of work, there are some annoying glitches here and there.
I don't even include CO-OP or MP as part of the review for this game, simply because this is a SP game at heart.
I;m afraid I don't agree. While the games was incredible for the first few hours, it soon became very repetitive and disappointing. Also the multiplayer felt very tacked on and due to this, the impressive map creator was made redundant. Finally the co-op was truly awful and took away all the things which originally made the singleplayer so great. Overall I would have given it a 7.5 out of 10
Completely agree. It got repetitive very quickly, even though I was in awe of it the first few hours I played it.
while gta games kept me playing for months
all games are repetitive in their own kind. think.
repetitive? It's video games...they all are. Elaborate a bit more. Perhaps the open world movement and upgrade progressiveness was a bit too much for you?
I thought it was a good game, but not a great game, I think I spent in the order of 30 hours on the SP and enjoyed it all, some of the animal hunts and side missions were a bit tedious but on the whole it's worth playing. The MP and co-op weren't that bad, it's just that a lot of really crappy user made maps seem to make it into the playlist.
I absolutely loved the single player, never did play the multiplayer. And it has the best map editor I've ever seen.
multiplayer is shocking.
You forgot to put "In my opinion" at the beginning of the title. It was a great game but a lot of great games were released last gen and I don't think I'd class this as one of the best.
How could this be a fact? Of course it is his opinion, it would be a bother if people always had to type "In my opinion" before meaning something. In that case you also should add "In my opinion" before what you said.
Well it was more of sarcastic comment than anything but still the title of an article is different to a comment on the article.
You shouldn't have to write "in my opinion" if it's clearly his opinion, what else would it be? Think for a second. Always wondered why people on this site get into hissy fits whenever someone doesn't write "in my opinion" after stating something that's so obviously an opinion. If someone expresses a like or dislike for something it's always an opinion!
Waiting to get this one off steam for about 30-40 dollars. iT looked good enough but just got caught in the multitude of games in the fall.
It was a great game, but not even in the top 5. I loved it though. It was great. Seriously, N4G.... I liked the game. No hating on me. I am just stating that there were much better games this gen... Calm down, guys.
BURN THE HEATHEN!
Far Cry 3, guess Persona and Dishonored didn't live up to the groundbreaking story in this game.
It's a good game, but the lacklustre mp & coop, it's hardly a 10/10.
Host Migration ruins it
its even better on the PC that is already up to nextgen too forget the consoles of last gen that hold all the newest games back in their true potential
Migrating host peer to peer drives me nutz too.
Yeah, I've got it on PC. Played it on console, my god what a jaggie, blurry, textureless screen tearing mess. Whoever says we don't need next gen just needs to look at this game.
Ive not seen it on consoles yet but have on PC. The MSAA really pushes my 7970 when maxed out but no denying We have it soo good when comes to video settings.
I'm sure this game runs better on PC, but the framerate on consoles is terrible. It almost makes my physically sick playing it. I know there is a lot going on in this game, but I think this should have been addressed prior to release.
Far cry 3 was definatly in my most enjoyed SP games list this Gen... But to say the greatest when compare to MG4,Heavy Rain,GT5,Deu Ex,Hitman Absalution,Uncharted 2..... GASP....Star Craft 2 Heavy Rain, OMG's Just too dam many i enjoyed this gen.
Its not!Its A TECHICAL piece of shit that runs with very low framerates on consoles and awfull screen tearing,and it could be say the same for PC were is terrible ,Micro-stuttering ruins this game on PC for lots of paying gamers and Ubisoft dont do shit to fix it since the money is already earned.Theres actually a 50+ page thread in ubisoft foruns regarding this problem on PC and it was never reply from ubisoft or any dev ,its just horrible the support! http://forums.ubi.com/showt... I really dont understand journalism this days,how can a game like Far cry 3 and Skyrim get scores of 8,9,10 when they are absolut techical crap games.I really believe that pay checks are in order this days.
Took me a day or two, but got mine maxed out on PC apart from AA which I think is either broken in game or my GTX 680 can't do it on this game, which I doubt very much. Agree on console it looks terrible.
I'd give this game a 9/10 Absolutely loved the environment and I really got immersed into the world. Loved how you had to hunt animals to upgrade your gear. Hunting actually had a purpose. THe gun fights were awesome and and now to one of the huge strengths of the game - Stealth. IMO it's done really well and I loved using the bow/arrow while stealthing and it feels so rewarding. I didn't include CO-OP or MP as part of my 9/10, simply because this is a SP game at HEART and always was. I see there are a few people complaining about the game dipping below 30fps a lot on the console versions. Not sure if you are talking about the PS3, but the 360 version was smooth for me. I don't even recall it dipping when I fired a explosive arrow at 3 jeeps on screen, was still smooth when aiming around during this moment. I didnt come upon any other technical issues either. Far Cry 3 definitely one of the GOTY's for sure 9/10
I really enjoyed this game and would give the SP a 8.5/10 (maybe 9) personally
the pc version is really awesome consoles just couldnt handle the big world of the game
