Very well done. BUT, see why it's 2 stars belowPosted .
I'm not a wimp. I am former Police Officer and had FBI SWAT training. I enjoy playing these games with my young nephew online. I also have a female friend that loves them too. With all that said, there is so much unnecessary swearing, swearing, swearing, it distracts from the graphics and the storyline. In previous games there has always been a way to edit swearing out, but not in recent ones. I WILL NOT play this game with my favorite nephew or my female friend because, quite frankly, it totally offends me. Otherwise, the game is awesome and I love the challenges. But I am annoyed that I cannot and will not play it with younger kids. While I am sure they swear (just like I occasionally do as well), this just encourages it and makes it "okay." If you are an adult, enjoy it, it is fun. If you have kids or it is for your kids, DON'T.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The Good vs Bad about Far Cry 3Posted .
Like the majority of games I've purchased and reviewed this year, Far Cry 3 caught my attention at E3 2012. I didn't know anything about it besides what it was called prior to that, and I really didn't care. For some reason or another, Far Cry 2 just didn't do it for me. I picked it up from Blockbuster a couple years back, played it for a few minutes, and ended up returning it within an hour for reasons that I can't quite remember. I remember playing and loving the heck out of the Far Cry games that released on the Xbox (the original, not 360), so why did I hate that one? Regardless of the answer, after playing Far Cry 3 I'm thinking about finding 2 again and giving it a 2nd chance. Find out why by reading on in my Good vs Bad Review! As for the good things about Far Cry 3: This game is actually quite realistic, and it's not only in the sense of gameplay mechanics. Far Cry 3 is one of the very few games I've played in which the characters can actually be seen as believable, at least when comparing them to the way humans would act and respond to the games scenarios. This is especially the case with the protagonist, Jason Brody. In the beginning of the game, he's scared out of his mind after being kidnapped from what he thought would be the perfect vacation with his friends. He even freaks out after killing his first person, but he gets more use to it as the game goes on. Though for some odd reason, he can never seem to get use to skinning animals. There wasn't a single major character in this game that I didn't find interesting, and the voice acting behind them all made for even more believable characters. With Far Cry 3 being an open world game, you're going to have to face open world challenges. One of these challenges is the wild, which this game happens to do better than any open world title I've played so far. With such a wide variety of animals available, you've got a lot more to worry about than other human beings. When in range, the majority of creatures roaming the islands you'll be exploring can (and often will) attack when you least expect it, raising the bar on the games already chaotic combat. However, these animals aren't just there as an interesting distraction, they must also be hunted and skinned in order for you to upgrade your equipment. More of these open world challenges include controlling territory to deplete enemy forces, and making the rather large map more visible on your GPS. As you start your journey in Far Cry 3, the island is mostly taken over by your enemies. In order to take it back, you're going to have to raid their outposts and kill everyone inside. This can be done in many ways, though I prefer to find an animal cage, snipe off the lock, and let whatever was inside that cage take them out for me. In terms of making your map more visible on the GPS, this game has an Assassin's Creed style of updating it. Across the island are radio towers that you'll have to climb, which are all surprisingly different. Once you reach the top, turn on the fuse box and bam, more of the map is revealed. Oh, and instead of making a leap of faith into a haystack, you take a zip-line down. Taking over outposts, updating your map, and killing enemies will get your experience points, which can be used to add new skills to your character. The way in which this is done can be compared to Borderlands, seeing as how there are 3 skill trees you can place your points in, each with a primary skill set. With each skill you add, Jason's tattoo (will be explained in the game) will expand and it's actually possible to acquire every skill in one playthrough. When in combat with human enemies, this game focuses more on precision than how many bullets you have to unload into them. One shot to the head from any weapon results in death, which is something that I honestly wish more games would invest in. Shooting an enemy anywhere else will cause them to respond where the bullet hit, but you're definitely going to have to shoot a few more rounds. This doesn't at all qualify with heavy enemies though, mostly for the fact that they're wearing armor and helmets. To take out these guys, you're going to need a good strategy. Personally, I find a couple grenades and a few blasts from a shotgun to do just fine, just make sure you don't try knifing them or you're screwed. If you ever get sick of doing the story missions, taking over outposts, or climbing radio towers, there's still a heck of a lot to do in this game. There are numerous side-quests, mini-games, and even challenges that you can compete (score wise) against your friends in. This is also a relatively good game for those who just like to explore and have some fun without the pressure of having an objective. Why not climb to the top of a mountain and use your wing-suit to soar across the island? Or maybe you think things are better down where it's wetter and wish to swim with the fishes instead. Go for it! This game has more than enough to keep you occupied for a long time. In terms of the games multiplayer aspects, there really isn't anything that stood out from other games I've played. Like most games lately, the co-op is its own game mode that's totally separate from the original campaign. It's fun to play with your friends, relatively short, and actually helps you level up for the competitive multiplayer whenever you decide to play. As for the bad things about Far Cry 3; there are absolutely none besides the fact that the co-op campaign was a bit too repetitive. Each mission was practically the exact same thing in a different location, but I suppose it's not too bad because of how short it was. With that small flaw aside, Far Cry 3 isn't only the best game I've played all year… It's also one of my personal best games of all time, getting a well-deserved 5 out of 5. After going through an entire year of what felt like a bulk of copy and paste games, it's nice to have one that stands out from the crowd.I would recommend this to a friend

Great GamePosted .
I did not pay much attention when this game was released but upon viewing gameplay and reviews I became interested in quickly. I bought this game when it was an astonishing $20 and I have not regretted this decision. This game is an open world sandbox type of game which you can do side missions or just roam the tropical jungle shooting animals or killing pirates. The great thing I liked about this game is that you can free roam, upgrade your characters skills, and add different attachments to a bunch of guns. The bad thing is that it ended up getting a little repetitive and the dialogue with characters were a little off. Overall I highly recommend this game it was fun and I had a great time getting all the achievements for it.I would recommend this to a friend

Best game I've played this yearPosted .
Warning: lots of violence (stabbing in the back/neck for a "takedown") and some nudity. Those points aside, I highly recommend this game to mature players. The graphics are seriously amazing and the island you get to explore is massive. Unlock new weapons (or get them free in stores around the map) as you capture fortified bases and radio towers. This game was definitely worth the money! I beat the game on "Warrior" in about 30 hrs of play time, but someone could easily spend more time exploring/completing missions/collecting artifacts. Enjoy!I would recommend this to a friend

Very beautiful FPS open world gamePosted .
Single Player: 9/10 On the first island the campain is very challenging and so are side missions. However as I progressed onto the second island it got just a little easier, but thats probably due to the fact that I had all signature weapons. I say its the best Story plot of 2012 Collectables: 10/10 Far Cry 3 has three different types of collectables; relics, memory cards and lost letters Relics: Hard to find without maps because almost all 128 of them are scattered in hard to reach place . Lost Letters: Quite easy to find because they're usually in Japanese/Chinese ruin Memory Cards: Usually in strongholds Side Missions: 8/10 Far Cry 3 has multiple side missions and activities including: Car and boat racing, Hunting Quests (for crafting material), and Mini-games Multiplayer: 6/10 Multiplayer is just standard FPS multiplayer However a map editor can easily make-up for it. Overall: Far Cry 3 is one of those unknown beauties. It is worth what you pay.I would recommend this to a friend

Just go get it!!!Posted .
I dont know where to start because everything is great about this game and my hat goes off to Ubisoft, they did a great job with this. First off this game should not be played by children under 18 due to severe strong language. One thing that stands out for me is the sense of being part of the environment. You really feel like you are in the jungle where death could be over the hill or in the water. Oh!!! there are militia's out to kill you on sight. These guys are brutal and their AI is very impressive. Besides them you have wild dogs, komodo dragons, tigers, panthers, crocodiles, and even buffalos out to kill you just to name a few. Also impressive is the fact that all the animals and humans interact as if in real life. For example, the militias will attack tigers or dagons once they spot it. They even engage in gun fights with the rebels and at times i witness them executing innocent villagers. The game is very deep in terms of the area maps and missions to complete. You also have a good assortment of weapons which you can purchase or collect money while on missions. You can also customize the weapons. I bought the game two weeks ago and i still have not completed it yet. It is very entertaining and i will recommend it if you are into Assassins creed or any good adventure games.I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this just to play it againPosted .
It's just an amazing game. I had never played any of the FarCry series before this one, and story wise you don't need to since it's a new, stand alone story. The story is great too, as you play a guy being thrust into a violent situation where he has to survive and adapt. I had heard it described as Skyrim with guns, and that's really accurate. You get to travel a beautiful landscape, avoid or hunt wildlife, take over camps by any way you see fit, and upgrade as you go to become an ultimate badass. I had played it once and had been craving it again, so that's why I bought it. If you've never played it, do yourself a favor and get it. I got it on a great $15 sale and it randomly does that so just keep an eye out. Enjoy!I would recommend this to a friend
