Aidan from Awesome Games writes: 'Far Cry 3 is the perfect example of a franchise returning to form. Quick history lesson. The 2004 PC original released at a time when the first-person shooter was climbing to blockbuster saturation. Halo 2 and Half-Life 2 were but two mega-hits of that year. Far Cry’s unique spin was its paradise setting, its lush island juxtaposed with the mass manslaughter of the game’s plot. Gorgeous still today, killing a platoon of mercenaries was proven to be sweeter if one can wage his macabre on a beach.'
