Far Cry 3 is an first-person shooter action videogame developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Massive Studios. Published by Ubisoft, this game was released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. When playing, you will become Jason Brody, a young man who is enjoying a vacation with his friends on a supposedly isolated island. Soon, you will discover that you are not alone; the natives are at war with a mafia that traffics slaves. The island is a wild paradise where the chaos and the violence are the main currency.
You will become Jason Brody, a young man who is on vacation with his friends on a supposedly isolated island
Once you download it, your main objective will be to save your girlfriend, your brothers and your friends from Vaas Montenegro, the leader of the pirate group. This adventure is set in a map 10 times bigger that the previous releases, so Far Cry 3 is an open sandbox in which you decide where and when you complete missions. You can follow the main storyline or accomplish the multiple missions that are spread across the map.
The gameplay of Far Cry 3 is varied, so you cannot get bored. You will use the first-person shooter style for several missions, in which you will have to defeat your enemies. In other missions, you will have to use the stealth gameplay, to conquer bases without being noticed. Action is present throughout the whole game, and you can also perform melée attacks, use explosives, drive all kind of vehicles (including quads, hang gliders and parachutes)
Insanity is doing the exact same thing…
When playing, you will be unlocking the whole map. However, this is an arduous job since the map is no less than gigantic in scale. You will have lots of places to unlock, invade, or take over to have a clearest view of the island. Radio towers or enemy camps will allow you to draw the map around you. Jason copes with anything, and as you complete missions, he will have more money, more items to customize his weapons, and to make medicines and potions. He will have better bags, belts and cartridge belts to keep all his items, and once you have it all, you will enjoy the gameplay, as never before, with a freedom you cannot even imagine.
As a FPS, you will rely on very interesting weaponry with all kind of rifles, shotguns, and guns, as well as other great calibers such as heavy machine-guns and flame-throwers. However, do not forget the simple ones. The bow and arrows will be your great allies in stealth missions, just as your hand knife. In addition, you can customize all weapons, for instance, adding explosives or fire to your arrows.
There are three skill branches that you will see as tattoos on Jason's skin and that will increase their combat abilities in the jungle environment of Far Cry 3. Heron, Shark and Spider are those branches, and each one will provide you with different skills. You will not have to choose between the three since you are free to upgrade them at the same time. You just have to decide smartly on where you want to spend your experience points. The Heron will provide you with upgrades in regards to long-ranged takedowns and mobility, the Shark will improve your assault takedowns and the healing capability, and finally, the spider will improve the stealth takedowns and the survival abilities.
In regards to secondary missions, there are not as brilliant as the main missions and they can be a bit repetitive if you do them all at once. Nevertheless, they are as repetitive as this outstanding sandbox can afford and you have a wide variety to choose from. Side missions are the ones in which the local Rakyat will ask you for help. The missions named Path of the Hunter appear when you liberate Outposts. They consist of hunting a specific animal with a specific weapon. Supply Drop missions consist of taking some medical supplies to another place by driving a quad or other vehicles in a limited amount of time. In the Wanted Dead missions, you must defeat a pirate commander with your knife, and finally, in Trial of the Rakyat, you must survive to waves of armored enemies.

Far Cry 3 is one of those games that leave you glued to your seat because you want to know what will happen next. This is only achieved by a good story, and Far Cry has a good story. When playing, you will become Jason Brody, a boy who is in vacation with his friend and who is suddenly kidnapped by a mafia. After his mystical journey in the island, he will never be the same person. After all, he is now a skilled assassin who has become a hero for the inhabitants of the island.
The gameplay is simple, but repetitive. If you are not playing the main campaign, you can play the side missions that the game offers you. They are always the same, either control an enemy camp, hunt some kind of animal or free a radio tower from the interferences. Nevertheless, there are some many ways in which you can carry out these task, and also lots of weapons you can use. My favorites are the bow and the sniper rifle. They provide you with all the stealth and precision you need to take a camp without being noticed. You can also use guns, bombs and other impressive weapons if you want to take the camp like there was no tomorrow.
- Huge open world to explore
- Multiple weapons to attack and hunt
- It takes to much time to go from one place to another
