"Game of the year."
5 stars"

I don't often write reviews. In fact, this is my first on Mighty Ape. But this game deserves commemoration for, quite literally, bringing a tear to my eye. The combination of intense storyline, realistic environments and stunning character development create a game which could easily be a movie – or even a real life crisis, watched from the eyes of a helpless world.

You do not simply run in, kill the enemies and make done with it. A series of mass murderers tear apart your family and force you into the jungle. It took me fifteen real world hours to get to the end of the campaign – and it was worth every minute. I ended up hating these characters with true passion, and wanting them dead more than anything else. It's a totally immersive story and I became completely lost in it.

If you haven't already, buy this game, you won't be disappointed. You will love the game and all of its twists and turns, and you will spend countless hours trying to complete it – side missions and collectables keep you busy long after the game has finished.

A total masterpiece, combining the best elements of the previous games and creating a world that you will be completely swallowed by.

Well done Ubisoft.

"Trust me, this game is definitely worth the money"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have already played Far Cry 3 for many hours, but have barely progressed the main story. This is because the game doesn't force you into anything. You can do side-quests, tasks on noticeboards, or even just explore the island and its stunning visuals. It is this, excellent game play and well voiced characters that place the game among the best in its genre

"Stunning graphics excellent gameplay"
5 stars"

This game reminds me of red dead redemption only in a more modern time setting. It is very addictive trying to go around collecting items for crafting etc. Combat is just like your regular first person shooting style. The story keeps you entertained and wanting to get to the next mission. Overall this is very much a highly recommended game.

Far Cry 3 players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island cut off from civilization. In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players will dictate when, where and how the events of the game unfold. Players will slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong.


  • The island of Far Cry 3 will drop the player into a rich and stunningly well-realized environment, full of intriguing characters to meet, locations to explore and explosive fights to jump into.
  • Alone on a tropical island, the player will have to confront the dark side of humanity. As Jason Brody, gamers will be impelled to act as he learns more about the horror and corruption that is taking place on the island.
  • Far Cry 3 exists within a world of conceivable reality, where the events could have been ripped straight from the headlines of the news.
  • The natural environment is a tool to be used for survival, improvising your attack or deception of the enemy. Gameplay will reflect the range of opportunities and variety only this type of environment could provide.
