    dmullig2's Far Cry 3 (360)

    [December 11, 2012 07:10:05 PM]
    Last week I bought the recently released Far Cry 3. Although I havenít played any previous Far Cry game before, I decided to pick this up because of the marketing for this game. Touted as Skyrim with guns, I decided to see if this was the case. I liked Skyrim before, and a game with guns is usually a winning combination, so I decided to try it out. Upon playing the game, I realized that this game was exactly what it said. Far Cry 3 is Skyrim with guns, but it is a lot more than that as well.

    At the beginning, the game tells the brief introduction story about how you play as a trust fund kid who is rather unlikeable. Him and his friends all get trapped on an island by a scary guy named Vaas, who is about to sell the player and his friends into slavery. Then a break out happens and the world opens up from there. The bulk of the beginning of the game is finding the missing friends and finding a way of the island. However, after a while, more story elements start to develop, and before you know it, you are participating in a civil war.

    While the gameís story plays it straight forward, the gameplay is really where this game shines. Although it plays like a first person shooter, there are lots of different elements that separate it. For example, because you play as a person who doesnít have a lot of experience using guns, the guns tend to sway and accuracy is a bit off. That is, until you upgrade the character by hunting or other missions that boost his attributes. It kind of feels like Skyrim in a way, yet, does enough things differently to distinguish itself. Overall, Far Cry 3 was a satisfying game with some cool ideas and some nice gameplay elements.
