Far cry 3 – is a typical island simulator. Where you take scenic walk along the beach you go swimming with the dolphins and you drive a bike through picturesque mountain trials at least it seems that way for the first 30 seconds of the prologue. In reality you’re an average dude named Jason Brody vacationing with his friends and superhot girlfriend. Before you’re all captured by pirates and held for ransom. After escaping from your captors you began to hunt down those responsible as you rescue your friends. And ultimately help the natives to reclaim the island from a psychopath named Hoyt and his charismatic underling Vas. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal far cry 3 runs on an updated version of the jr. engine previously used in far Cry 2. And it’s a much more colorful looking game.
The water effect look neat theirs is some fantastic lighting as sunlight shines through foliage and all of the weapons in character models looks great as well. Overall it’s a huge game more than you’ll be using vehicles to traverse the environment combined with a wingsuit you acquire in the second half of the campaign. It seems the Ubisoft have learned from how most people disliked the lack of fast travel points in far cry 2. So this time around the world is absolutely packed with them. It also does have some performance issues so you’re going to need to do bit of screwing around to get it running smoothly but it’s definitely a great looking game and it does good job of immersing you into this believable game world.
Overall the campaign is all about carving a path to vaas and the way do this is by completing story and side missions. You also clear outposts which act as fast travel points and climb radio towers to reveal the map and unlock free weapons.
