I’ve heard nothing but praise for Far Cry 3 - TSA’s community has been very vocal about how great of a game it is, as far as I’m aware. Vaas is, apparently, one of the best videogame villains of all time and there’s just so much to do in the world of the third Far Cry instalment.
Even though that might be the case, I’ve been in a constant state of not having the money to spare since it released, so I haven’t yet got around to it. Fortunately, you lot will be able to convince not just me but many other potential buyers why they should (or shouldn’t, though I highly doubt that’s the case) part with their cash for this game.
We didn’t review the game so there’s no score to assign to the game from us – though it does hold an impressive Metacritic rating of 90.
Thankfully, teflon previewed the game a month or so before release. While he couldn’t go as in-depth as he wanted to, he gave us all the impression that the game would definitely be a hit, ending it simply with “it feels like Ubisoft are set to pull it all together successfully.” And I’m surely they did exactly that – though your opinion may differ.
Peter also put together some lovely videos (including the one embedded above) in order to still give a good impression of the game while doing something different from the many other reviews on the web. There’s not much else I can really say about the game – this is where it’s left to you.
So, did you love it as much as everyone else seems to have? Or were you disappointed by the third instalment in the Far Cry series? This is your chance to get your voice heard.
As per usual, just leave a comment below and slap a Buy It, Bargain Bin It, Rent It or Avoid It rating on the end, summing up your feelings. We’ll do a round-up of all your reviews next Monday, so if you manage to write a comment by Sunday afternoon, you’ve got a good chance of being included in the Verdict article.
