Far Cry 3–Greatest Game Ever?

So after many months I finally completed Far Cry 3’s main storyline today.  This is a game that for some reason dropped in price very quickly, it received many great reviews but I can only assume the sales were not as expected and thus the price fell quickly.

pnl_mex_farcry3In my opinion this game contains everything you’d want from a game.  The game is taken from the first person perspective of Jason Brody.  The game consists of many different elements, each of which is done to an extremely high standard.

The story is gripping, drawing you into ‘just playing a little bit longer’.  The story also has a few branches with choices you can make which will affect how the story plays out.

The game has elements of first person shooting, some truly exhilarating driving, hand gliding all across the beautiful island.  When I say this game is beautiful I have to reference ‘Red Dead Redemption’, that game at the time was an amazingly picturesque game.  Far Cry takes that beauty and cranks it up another ten notches.  Checkout my Youtube channel for clips of the island.

Not only does the game have a compelling story line but there are also numerous side missions, plus tasks you can come back to during or even after the main story is completed.  I quite often will complete a game’s main mission and not bother with any of these tasks but with Far Cry, it is just another excuse to explore the island.  There are also numerous hunting missions, with numerous animals you can hunt and kill which can then be used to craft items to help you in the game.

The number of weapons is also huge with various customisation options.  There are also many side missions of differing types, from taking over enemy bases to allow your allies to set up camp (plus providing you with a new area of the island to fast travel too), wanted poster missions located at the taken over sites, medical missions consisting of driving at extreme speed through check points in buggies and quad bikes plus many more.Far-Cry-3-hangglider

There are also missions to take down radio towers which not only are fun and challenging but also give you awesome views of various sections of the island.

Never have I played a game that has such a wide range of activities done so well and in such a great setting.  Similarities can be drawn with GTA and Red Dead Redemption but this game just seems to do everything in a more crisp, gorgeous way.

After having finishing the main story and still wanting to continue playing this game I can not recommend a game to friends more highly.
