Introduction

Far Cry Three video game is a 1st-person shooter game that was developed and published by Ubisoft Montreal for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Microsoft Windows. The game was released in November 2012 in Australia and Europe and December in North America. Another version of this game, Far Cry3: Blood Dragon was developed and launched in 2013.

General Impression

This is not a video game which wishes to mess around. The developer knew exactly what they wanted and, as soon as the fabulous brief introduction part is over, the game gets straight into delivering its vision in a direct manner. That alone ensures that it’s a brilliant game because what it wants to achieve is mainly a guerrilla tactics simulator in a clear, tropical paradise.

It is you and your small arsenal of weapons to assault as many enemies as you want. You can go deeper into the video game, of course –there is an entirely new RPG system which enables you to learn new skills and design new items, but that base-destruction idea is what drives the game. You can attack the enemies from any side you want, using any tactic you want. Personally, I like to assault them high-ground.

Graphics and Design

The game is designed in such a way that if the missions and the assassination theme become repetitive, you can switch to the multiplayer, which is quite robust. There is also the ordinary standard competitive setting for beginners but it is the co-operative campaign which is primary theme.

Supporting up to 4 players online, the co-operative mode tells an entirely new story with new objectives, content, and characters for you to navigate through. It also features a prequel for the single mode game, with the theme resting around 4 mercenaries on a holiday tour.

Software/Developer

Far Cry 3 was developed by Ubisoft Montreal for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Microsoft Windows.

Positive and Negative Impression

The first positive thing you will note when playing the game is that your last base raid will be as unpredictable and exciting as your first one. It is well-developed to ensure that there is no repetition in any level. The other positive is the excitement you get when running up a windy-mountain ridge before you hang-glide off. It’s quite breathtaking.

On the other side, you don’t have the ability to switch off the HUD, objective markers, and mini-map – quite annoying.

Story Summary

The enemies are usually pirates. Just like Far Cry 2, this game doesn’t feature a continuing story and you don’t need to play the previous versions to understand it.

Here, you are alone in your plight and your friends have also been captured and taken to camps across the island. When you escape, with no direction of where you are heading to, you make it your purpose to free your friends…

Conclusion

The game might appear wanting with lots of literary pretensions than real smarts, but it is still quite entertaining. In addition, the decision of playing solo or with other players makes it more exciting.
