    Wow, this game has it all. I've been playing this game nonstop because it's so addictive. From it's story to it's gunplay, everything is spot on near perfection. The developers really out-did themselv...

    Best FPS to date.

    Rated on December 09, 2012 by ac1dcs13

    After the release of Black Ops 2 and the quick let down it was, I didn't think I would ever be able to find another FPS worth my time, not saying CoD was worth it but it filled in my desire to kill pe...

    Repetitive side missions and lack of depth make for a disappointing lack lustre return.

    Far Cry 3 is the best gaming experience of the year, bar none.

    Rated on December 17, 2012 by mastermetal777

    Total cakewalk, repetitive, many useless features.

    Rated on December 13, 2012 by Prismet

    Don't read this review if you don't want any spoilers before you play. Fair warning to you. I love Far Cry 3. I've been rather disappointed with mainstream gaming for the past couple of years and I...
