Should I get this or Assassin's Creed 3?

Which is longer, which has more replay value, which is harder, which has the most to explore? Also posted on the Xbox general forum and the AC3 forum.

Far cry 3 is longer, harder and bigger all around. That being said, both are good games.

I won't tell you what to get. But I will say if you do make the poor choice of getting AC 3 over this game you will be incredibly dissapointed. Not only was AC 3 very disapointing but far cry 3 is an amazing game that is like no other. AC 3 for me 7/10 (although thats a tad generious), Far cry 3 9/10. My opinion. For any AC fans that come into this article I don't care if you don't agree with me so don't waste your time writing a paragraph to prove me wrong. I will just laugh at your pathetic attempt to defend a video game that someone else doesn't like and move on. But yea....get far cry 3 brotha

I had to make this same choice, and I chose FC3. Since I havent played AC3 yet I cant speak on it. I can tell you this game is awesome in every way and worth every penny though. You may not be dissapointed either way, but FC3 won for me and Im glad I chose it.

Best game Ive played all year. Great story and so much to do, I highly doubt youll be dissapointed with this.

I have both of the games, and while I do enjoy them both, I must say FC3 is the better choice. Every time I stopped to try a different game I would constantly go back to FC and continue on. "Just 1 more outpost, 1 more radio tower... etc... "

Now that I've finished it Im starting to play AC3. I 'd say I got about 40ish hours into FC when I beat it. There was still side quests i didn't do. Quite a few actually. Don;t know how long AC3 is I havent finished it yet.

Id say get them both, but if you have to make a choice between the 2. FC3 all the way. Best game I've played this year.

I only played the first Assassins Creed. One of the most boring games i've ever played. I had to force myself to finish it. Pure torture.

Get FC3. 'Nough said.

If you like your hand being held, then AC3.  If you like more freedom, FC3.

Agreeeeee completely... I own both of them. Huge AC fan here but AC3 was not what i expected. Not a bad game but i expected a lot more from it (not gonna talk about how glitchy the game is but...). THEN i got FC3 and im liking it way better. 9/10 as well... Just check out the player reviews for both games here and u'll see what im talking about. 

Hope it helps and enjoy FC3 **wink wink** lol

I had to do the same thing today. I really love the AC series, didn't play AC Revelations but I still enjoyed AC1-ACBrohood. I chose to pick up Farcry 3 today instead and I'm pleasantly surprised.
