In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles they choose to fight to the allies or enemies they make along the way. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong. Expand

    A new standard for the genre. With a huge world full of surprises you could define it as the Skyrim of action games.

    Far Cry 3 is important for the same reason as Far Cry 2. It's a shooter that considers shooters thoughtfully, both in the way they're designed and the way we play them, and then asks us to do the same.

    Far Cry 3 is an exceptional FPS with fun mechanics and excellent characterization. Unfortunately it wastes a fair number of opportunities offered by its huge open-world background. Plus, the secondary activities are not as fun as they could have been, and the island is too extensive to be interesting in the long run. Anyway, this game has surprised us.

    Far Cry 3 is an excellent game, marred mainly by some irritating design elements and an inconsistent story that often defaults to generic "tribal" cliches to make an impact.

    The action is explosive, the direction of the story sequences is intense at times, but still I can't really feel at home on these islands. Far Cry 3 is the ultimate open sandbox: The player can do what he wants, where he wants it, when he wants it. But the credibility of the world suffers – and with it my motivation.

    I haven't been that addicted to a game for AGEES. I'm tired of those boring ultra-repetitive games like Portal 2(who IMO deserves a 5 instead of 9.8)

    An amazing game, featuring stunning visuals and gameplay..
    The combat system allows you to play the game your own way, whether it be like rambo or hitman, or a combination of both himbon! and many other play styles..
    The story could be strong, but its easily over looked when there is so much to do and explore..
    This has quickly become one of my top 5 favorite games of all time, I would rank it up there with the GTA Series, Elderscrolls, dark souls and halflife..

    The co-op adds many more ours of fun and a social immersion into the tropical island paradise/hell..

    Get this game you won't regret it, definitely worth the $70!

Excellent graphics and optimization for older video cards (I played the 8800gts). I wish the characters would look like people, and then stood like idiots with a straight face. The animation is also not very much, but it is only minor flaws. All in all a great game. Expand

    Nice game with great island. Good story, even if at the end appears too long. Atmosphere is great. Not bad.

Ставить такую оценку, за это мы тебя повесим! Я: Но подождите, я вам всё объясню. Фанаты: нет, не говори дурак, за такую оценку только на фарш! Я: успокойтесь, эта игра не лучшая, я вам всё расскажу! Фанаты: Ты как смел? Эта игра лучшая! Я: надо валить!

    На самом деле, игра нормальная, но в ней много недостатков, например графика душная, и ещё графика намного хуже чем в Counter strike: source, я знаю что там мультяшная графика, но зато очень хорошая графика, но почему они хуже сделали в 2012 году чем игра 2012 года? В 4k разрешении игра выглядит как в 1920x1080, а игра выглядит в 1920x1080 как на разрешении 1280x768, игра очень скучная, надо ездить, а если уничтожалась машина, то беги пешком, а если где-то на гор задание, то тебе надо бегать по горам, мыльным горам, с которых ты будешь падать и падать, и фиг ещё найдёшь где задание, потому-что вот я искал одно задание, потом туда залез но она оказалось в пещере, и надо ещё спускаться, почему бы не написали где же задание находиться, хотя игра уникальная, и есть сетевая игра как в far cry 2, только там дают очки, за которые ты в сюжете прокачаешь навок.
    Вывод: Совсем уж и не такая плохая игра, сойдёт, но лучше играть с утра сюжет чем с вечера, потому что ото ты игру пройдешь за 5-6 вечера, это игра уникальная потому что есть всякие навыки, и она прикольная, но есть недостатки, но в игре хорошая русская озвучка, так что 7.5/10

    More garbage from UBisoft. I bought the deluxe edition for the dlc. (on Ubisoft connect) But the dlc does not show on map. Support is uselessMore garbage from UBisoft. I bought the deluxe edition for the dlc. (on Ubisoft connect) But the dlc does not show on map. Support is useless as always, followed their instructions but still does not work. Ubisoft Won't provide fix or refund. Will not ever buy Ubisoft games again. Expand
