Far Cry 3
Far Cry 3 is the third instalment in Far Cry series of sandbox shooters full of beautiful sights and groups of intelligent enemies. Yet again, the game was produced by Ubisoft Montreal with help of their branch office from Shanghai. We play as Jason Brody, a man who had his holidays abruptly stopped. He jumps on a parachute and it doesn’t end too well for him. He lands on an island which, although exotically beautiful, is taken over by psychopathic pirates. Jason’s friends are kept prisoners and all the island is full of ruthless, unstable murderers.
In order to save his friends and relatives and get away from the horrible place Jason will have to adapt to the situation quickly by learning to kill before he is killed. Far Cry 3 is a shooter seen from first person perspective, so it’s no surprise that we will spend most time on eliminating the enemies any way we can. However, there also is a strong focus on exploration. The island is big, beautiful and, what’s most important, open. So are the particular levels than need to be beaten. The player can choose his own strategy of dealing with a problem, stealthily assassinating particular enemies or going for an all-out attack in Rambo style. For our advancements in the campaign we gain points of experience.
We can invest them in three varied skillsets. Each of them is perfect for a person playing in a particular style and helps play that way even better. Thus, Far Cry 3 is also a proud owner of well-applied role playing elements. Multiplayer created by Ubisoft Massive is an interesting addition. Gameplay is quite simple and easy, there are some available scenarios with targets to achieve and a well-developed system of expanding the character’s possibilities. There are also six additional cooperation missions for up to four players, with the level of difficulty continuously increasing.

Far Cry 3 Review
Joining the party a little late launching on December 4th, Far Cry 3 seemed to have all the ingredients to be a first class, open world first-person shooter. Ubisoft already had a huge winner in the form of Assassins Creed III but were they able to pull it out of the bag twice in the same year?
