I'm hesitating to buy this game. Although I loved Far Cry 2 despite ALL of its shortcomings (yes, ALL, including the guards that respawned every 5 minutes in checkpoints), I feel Far Cry 3 is too different. From what I've seen in gameplay videos and trailers, I dislike FC 3's island-jungle setting. It feels like a downgrade from Far Cry 2's empty albeit varied african landscapes. The setting is what bothers me the most. Other than that, I would like to ask some questions.
How much weapon variety does this game has? How deep is the customization system for this game?
Is the crafting system any good? Does it become useless at some point?
In comparison to Far Cry 2's map, how is Far Cry 3's map? Smaller? Bigger?
Is there more variety in vehicles this time? Boats? Cars?
Are weapons still prone to decay and jamming after time, like in Far Cry 2?
How much is there to do in this game? Are side missions worth it, or just repetitive?
I would really like to have these questions answered. Please, be honest. Thank you for your time.
