    A unambitious and streamlined remaster of one of the better games in the Far Cry franchise, Far Cry 3 Classic Edition nonetheless provides value and satisfying open-world shenanigans in spades.

    This is a very straightforward port of Far Cry 3, a game loved and loathed in equal measure. The Classic Edition is a great way for newcomers to experience one of the best games in the series, despite some clunky controls. Many people will have made up their mind about Jason's journey years ago, but on its own merit, this is a competent re-release of a fun, if a little dated, open world shooter.

    Far Cry 3 Classic Edition is a compelling journey into the past of the Ubisoft series. The game is still solid and enjoyable, full of things to do while exploring the island, but the remaster could have been better.

    Far Cry 3 still offers damn good time, and the Classic Edition is a great way to revisit Ubisoft’s influential classic or dive into it with fresh eyes. The tried-and-tested formula has advanced in recent years, leaving some aspects of Far Cry 3 to feel aged and inconsiderate, which could be too high a hurdle for newcomers to overcome.

I haven’t played it in years. I just found it on PSN for $10 for my PS4 & had to get it for that price! I can honestly say I’m enjoying it more this time around!!!! The one major visual improvement I’m noticing is no more screen tearing. That was the main irritation i had when I played the PS3 version. I feel that there is a visual improvement in general on PS4! I also enjoy playing with my headphones, which I couldn’t do on my PS3. The stereo sound effects sound awesome with headphones! I just finished Ghost of Tsushima (which is an amazing game BTW!) & needed a game to play. This is definitely scratching that itch! :-) Expand

    Far Cry 3
    A bit overrated
    Far Cry 3 is an about 16 hour long first person shooter where you play as Jason Brody
    The game starts with a bunch of young adults having fun and next thing you know, you and your little brother are in a cage, with the others nowhere to be found, this is where youre introduced to this games main antagonist vaas, who then shoots your brother, you run away and you spend the rest of the game trying to find your friends and get revenger for you little brother.. .
    I havnt played far cry 3 before, and with it being released for current gen consoles, being included in the far cry 5 season pass I thought I would go back and play the ps3 version..
    after hearing such great things about how this game was robbed for game of the year 2012 by releasing in December.. I was even more excited for what is supposed to be the best game in the far cry series…
    And im sorry to break your hearts, but I just don’t see it..
    And lets be real.. 2012 we saw the likes of dishonored, assassins creed 3, the walking dead season , lollipop chainsaw, borderlands 2, and journey… get out of here with that robbed nonsense…
    Is far cry 3 the best game in the series?
    If we don’t count far cry primal, it actually probably is.. that much I agree on.. though Ive never touched far cry 4…
    right off the bat, my eyes needed some adjusting.. im geunuinely surprised how bad this only nearly 6 year old game now looks.. I had to get used to the old school graphics to really immerse myself into the world.. thankfully after a couple of hours my brain and eyes did adjust and the negative critiquing ends there..
    Because Far Cry 3 while is insanely overrated is stil la really good game
    what makes far cry 3 so great is that its so simple and linear… youre placed on a giant island is towers to climb to reveal the map.. its crawling with plants and animals to hunt so you can upgrade your gear, posts to liberate for fast travel points.. and the story is delivered with emotion and great design that we don’t get in the more modern far cry games
    I much prefer this delivery style over the recent separate regions, go do things to challenge the region leader nonsense they do now, it pulls everything in and makes It feel personal..
    here youl lbe doing a variety of queststhat as you could guess involves a lot of shooting, with the occasional annoying stealth missions thrown in here…
    But it never feels like just busy work, I had fun through the whole campaign, and my favorite moments much like in far cry 5 were the moments where youre going through weird hallucinations…
    it’s a clever way to create unrealistic levels and bring them into reality and I appreciate that..
    and completing quests will reward you with xp that goes towards skill points you can throw in your skill tree
    world design however is just okay, not much incentive to explore…
    it’s a bunch of greens and blues.. I didn’t feel like much care went into crafting it, but works as land in between missions, and does a great job of coming to life during the main story line..
    A story that was again just kind of okay, none of the characters blew me away, there are some surprised in the story.. but nothing that really drew me in or pulled me through to the end..
    the pure fun of the gameplay, the shooting, the tower climbing, the hunting.. that’s what kept me going..
    there is also co op maps and online multiplayer here but beign a 6 year old game as you would guess theres not many people still playing and there isn’t much to say about it.. its just one of those tacked on multiplayer modes that every AAA ps3 game had
    Ultimately I enjoyed Far Cry 3
    Its not as great as everyone remembers it being.. it doesn’t hold up..
    but its still decently fun
    I give far cry 3
    a 7.5/10

So i was so happy when it was announced on ps4 with updated graphics and gameplay. Although it does look better (not by a large margin) it seems to feel really clunky and awked when trying to aim. I would have much preferred if the went down the route of a full remaster. But did love playing this game again. Expand

Some thought this game was a remake, as it says on the cover, it's the classic version, not a remake, I think the game is good, so you can buy it, but it would be nice if the optimization was better and it's not too expensive so it's not over $30 but they rushed it as usual I wish the optimization was better ubioft lazy as always. It would be great if he brought a blood dragon with him. Expand
