actually i can understand the devs opting with the second island for a different kind of turf, to give variety to the land after the more exotic turf type in the first one.

Well the story kind of stopped there as well. felt like a rushed game from that point.

Couldn't stand this game. Bought it on Steam during the summer sale but discovered I had to download and install another platform (Usoft) to run it. The UI was cluttered and awful. Negative mouse accel ruined the game for me, couldn't bare it. When I raised the horribly low default FOV, my performance tanked. After that, I had enough and uninstalled.

Suffers from ubisoft-itis. I can see the appeal tho, their games are made to appeal to everyone and is why they are so generic. And I don't like generic that much.

Well..Yes I can. why? Because I've picked up almost every Ubi game the last few years and they all follow the exact same world building and game-play patterns. Nothing unique, nothing exceptional. Q&A Recipe built games with zero creativity that take zero chances. Anyway no point in arguing about this. I'm sure you'll have immense fun playing the next Ubisoft open world / capture point / Skin Animal / Insert grindy repetitive side activities here / zero impact story . I just think I've had enough of those Ubi-verse game experiences to last me a lifetime by now :P

The game got repetitive, didn't quite enjoy that. Also hated how you had to go from one pixel of the island to the far end pixel, for a mission and then back... felt like they were forcing the exploration bit on us...

The game is a blast - I have it set up with Mods that make it less hand holding nub friendly and more of a challenge and that allow me to create any combo of weapon attachments on any weapon I want etc... also with re-takeable Outposts (the best part of the game). I'm totally ignoring the story this time around and just doing free roamin guerilla combat to my heart's content.

I give the vanilla release a solid 8/10 - as I have it set up now i'ts about a 9.2/10 - it just needs full free roam Co-Op and an option to turn off my asswhipe protagonists voice and it's a 10/10 for me.

Not the best in series but i enjoyed it a lot. I liked how dumb and silly the pirates were, the first island, vaas, exploring and hunting, the character arc from a rich and scared mommy boy to a full rambo monster, taking outposts etc and it had for me a certain charm, dunno.

Far better than the second one with its alzheimers problem. But still, the environment was not convincing and it was never jaw-droppingly beautiful as the first game was one it came out.

There are too many missions which are quite narrow and do exactly as they want you, this is bad for immersion. And of course too many quicktime events. And it of course feels a lot like a console game, and could used a lot of tweaking to be made better. The mini-map and the tagging break immersion, it's too helpful.

i loved the game. ive played it twice and want to play it a third before the 4th one (which im stoked for btw.) The story, sound fx, soundtrack, environment were great. I loved roaming around and exploring old ruins. The water terrified me at times, having sharks or huge manta rays silently sneak up on you haha. My only complaint with the game was whenever you unlocked a radio tower, new weapons were available for free... Which took away incentive to spend money on guns and you really just spend your money on ammo, so you pretty much have a maxxed out wallet the whole game. But thats it, im pretty excited for the 4th its looking pretty sweet.

EDIT: Vas was done so well in this game, he is one of my favorite antagonists from gaming, i hope fc4 will have someone similar.

Well, here's my take...

I played Far Cry 3 from start to finish once. It has since been un-installed.

I have played Far Cry 1 from start to finish twice and will definitely play it again.

I have played Far Cry 2 from start to finish at least 40 times (I'm currently about half-way through yet another).

I will wait for some in-game videos to appear on YouTube before wasting my money on FC4 (which already looks like FC3 with different clothes).

FarCry - Loved it. Plays like a "so bad it's great" made for TV 80s action film. Over the top stupid.

FarCry 2 - Hate. Solid gunplay and gorgeous visuals. Terrible story, bland characters, awful dialog and voice acting. Bland, tedious story missions... dead empty world were everyone is hostile outside the main town.

FarCry 3 - Love it. Solid gunplay and gorgeous visuals. Brilliant characters, amazing performances and solid voice acting.
Varied missions, a more alive world offering more reason to explore and be aware of your surroundings. (never had to worry about a wild animal attacking me while checking out an enemy camp in FarCry 2)

FarCry 4 - Looks to be an extension of 3. Same style, only expanded... and better. Can't wait.

Everything about far cry 3 is fine, except one thing which basically made me pull my hair out and delete it.

This noise like streaming thing which loads objects in front of you. Never found a way to disable that or increase draw distance significantly.

It is an awsome game, FC1 was a masterpiece for its time, however I hated FC2 and still can't stand it. So coming from FC2, for me FC3 was fantastic... story, graphics, atmosphere and the soundtrack!(loved the main song). I enjoyed every bit of it (except MP, since that was already dead when I bought the game), got 100% completion. From the three FC games it's my favourite.

It also looked and ran great on my rig at 1440p. But again, I only played it in 2014, so it didn't have any bugs/performance issues left. I'm very much looking forward to FC4 if it keeps the same elements of FC3 but with a different story and setting, it has great potential.
