Now that im all done with everything in the game....I have no interest in playing.This was one of my favorite games of last year but now it has lost its appeal.I just wished they would have done a little more with hunting and all that.To me, after you got all things upgraded, there was no reason to do hunting.I know they will put out DLC but not sure if it will make me want to play it anymore.

I totally agree. This tedious looting of useless things, crafting that is done the first few hours and then the boring adventure-scenarios to go further. Ubi had some good going on in FC2 but this as you say I dont want to play twice. 70 dollars waisted. The only chalenge in the game is to try to take the outposts undetected with silent weapons. It's an open world but not as open as it could have been done. Also to add for pc-gamers, you cant go back to an earlier stage and try some outposts in another way. I just wonder how UbiSoft thought.     The comments from the opponents were more than stupid while in FC2 you could at least laugh at those comments. Goodbye, Ubisoft, you will have a hard nut to crack to get me buy another of your games.

I think it's a big improvement over FC2, but they really dropped the ball with the tightly scripted, cut scene over burden of the main story line. Beautiful game world, tons of possibilities for totally unique play throughs, and we all play the game EXACTLY the same way to get through the main story missions.

How great would it have been to have a several of storyline branches available? Choices you make REALLY affect the direction and outcome of the story. Access Vass' and Volkers' compounds how and when you like. Deal with them in the manner YOU choose; so what if that choice knocks out some subsequent mission possibilities? Accept Rakyat and Citra's help to the degree you want to, or not at all. Put off by the psuedo mystical BS of the "warrier's path" An alternative story path to that would have been marvelous. That's what an open world game should be about. Imagine FC 3 with a dozen or more really different endings, and the consequences of those endings for the different groups/factions.

Good game in the end; that missed greatness for want of a real open world story, and the branches that should have went with it.

Why don't you guys try the multiplayer? I've already beat the campaign and now playing multiplayer, it's pretty fun.

Game looks great to me. Story is great, i don't want it to be different and all that open world is just wonderfull. Much better than FC2. I'm very happy that when you eliminate the camp it's yours and there's no pirates/sodiers anymore.

I am unsure if I will even finish it. The gameplay is fun, adventuring on the island and what not. But the story... it leaves much to be desired, and the characters reflect that even further to me. But there are too many things holding it back from being as good as it could have been. Playing this after playing Assassin's Creed... well it's kind of hard to notice I'm playing a different game!

The only good thing and that is the only good thing in this miserable game was the trials of the Rakyat.

The rest of this game was the most tedious experience of any game ever played. I struggled to fully complete this for months game playing an hour at a time at most before being absolutely bored with it. Doing the same thing over and over and over again for so many endless zones. The only time I would ever die would be from falling. Vechilies got stuck alot and where fun to blowup form there lack of handling. The story was *** and repititive. Vaas certainly got insanity meaning right this game is insainity from its repitition. The boss fights there was only one good one. That was in the dream sequence the smoke monster. The rest of them were button bashing some combo. The story missions had a few good fun ones. The best being the german mercenary in the jeep with bombs, and also the flamethrower weed feild, and protecting the german merc diffusing the bombs. Mostly were standard *** or stupid stealth nonsense. As a shooter it was to damn easy inject syringes for heal after body armour was gone use the grenade launcher and specialist shotgun or even melee for 1 hit kill. Hunter quests the animals would get stuck if you sat on a rock. Endlessly doing zone after zone of the same identical ***, they didn't change only got worse from the boredom. I stupidly collected every relic which made this game drag on and on. I was hoping to get UB points for them which they didn't give me any. What a waste of my time. Stealth was fun at times though ultimately pointless as the game was to easy. Did they not know how to play poker? In the mini game when you fold a hand you never show your cards unless you choose to. The format upon winning was wrong making it confusing combining cards with the deck. Some of the races and challenges where fun but do one of each and you had done them all. CO-OP was a total mess before the patches. The competitions on each MULTI map made them very enjoyable.

Though honestly this game getting the reviews it did for what had to be one of the most boring games ever played is questionable.
