    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.

    In my opinion,the best Far Cry made. This game has it all,big open world full of secrets,loot and things to do. The story is great,gunplay isIn my opinion,the best Far Cry made. This game has it all,big open world full of secrets,loot and things to do. The story is great,gunplay is almost perfect,its just a fun game. My only complaint is the driving,its bad,they should've made it third person as its to hard to see where your going so your always out of control,bumping into everything,other than that I love this game. Im always curious as to why some people give games a zero just to try and force their opinion of the game down our throats,lets be adults,Im pretty sure even ET is a 1 outta 10. Expand

I did not play the PS3 version but I have seen comparisons and it's basically the same. The game does hold up really well though and is still enjoyable if you like Far Cry. It has a good story and enough weapons and explosions. Its the most fun when you are blowing stuff up or just shooting everyone. Enough side-missions and activities to keep you busy for about 20 hours. I think its worth picking up if you dont have a PS3. Expand

    I'll start by mentioning that I didn't play this on the previous generation so it was my first exposure to Far Cry 3 - and any Far Cry game.I'll start by mentioning that I didn't play this on the previous generation so it was my first exposure to Far Cry 3 - and any Far Cry game. I am glad I picked this up as it was a cheap and enjoyable single player experience. It holds true to the typical Ubisoft open world map mechanic - you have to climb towers to expose map areas and capture bases to secure territory from enemies. This game mechanic is fun but there have obviously been improvements upon it since 2012 when it was originally released.

    The game play felt a little dated - the cover system was non-existent and falling from any decent height was a death sentence. On top of that up until the game was patched (halfway through my play through) the aiming and driving (in particular) were horrible. Once this was fixed it made my overall experience much better.

    The story was enjoyable. Nothing to take seriously - but a somewhat relatable situation where your average Joe gets thrown into a nightmare scenario where he has to rescue his friends. I enjoyed the over the top acting and dialog.

    There is enough here to warrant my further exploration into the series - especially considering this was a 6 year old game. I look forward to going back and getting a platinum trophy and playing the other games.

Well, sometimes check points can be tolerable, but this game isn't that case. Every time, once I run a game with check points, I practically hear the game's creators' excuses, "Sorry, pal, we can't implement a normal save system, so we're gonna make you pay your time for our laziness." You know what? "Thank" you very much, **** Expand

    Jesus this game didn't age well. I got this free with the season pass so I gave it another play though even though I've already finished it onJesus this game didn't age well. I got this free with the season pass so I gave it another play though even though I've already finished it on Xbox 360. The graphics are definitely better but the shooting and movement feel quite bad. Remasters are always weird to review cause the game-play and story hasn't changed so I really just look at how well the remaster was done and if it improved what a remaster normally should improve these days. To sum it up graphics are better but nothing mind-blowing, controls feel pretty bad and playing this just feels like it sours my memories of the original. Expand
