Far Cry 3 is one of Ubisoft's best games ever and it nails the open world first-person shooter genre on the head. After playing through the crazy story, the addictive gameplay, and lush setting, you may wonder why more developers don't pay this much attention to the little details.

We like

  • Terrific setting full of worthwhile things to do
  • Excellent singleplayer experience
  • First-person platforming at its best

We dislike

  • Occasional graphic issues
  • Mediocre multiplayer
  • Vehicle use is hit or miss
