Far Cry 3 was launched around November 2012, and it has already started toppling big names like COD: Black Ops 2 and FIFA 13 in many charts around the world. Far Cry was a great open world adventure game. While Far Cry 2 had a major departure from the original theme, Far Cry 3 brings a tidy balance to the franchise. So, what makes Far Cry 3 such a great game?
The most notable feature of Far Cry 3 is its wide open world for game play. There’s plenty of jungle to explore, plenty of targets to shoot and plenty of depth to the story to actually make you care for the game and its unfolding plot. The game starts with the protagonist, Jason Brody, going out for a casual vacation with his brother and not-so-familiar friends, to the picturesque destination of Rook Islands. Things turn sour soon though– the whole group is kidnapped by the local group of pirates.
You, as Jason Brody, and your brother manage to escape, but the brother is killed in the process. And that’s where the game really starts. You are taken in by a local group of rebels, who fight against the pirates. Your primary objective throughout the game is to eat through the pirate camps, and free your friends from the stranglehold of the villainous Vaas, the pirate boss.
Far Cry 3 scores in the amount of realistic freedom that it gives to the gamer. With so much of fancy graphics, you would expect a loose FPS shooting mechanics, but Far Cry 3 would surprise you with the precise aiming controls. The plot is filled with surprises and has enough depth to make you feel for the character, especially that of Jason Brody.
