5 out of 5 eggsThe best single player game out there

Pros: Just a fantastic game. You can easily put 500 hours into this game and still find new ways to play it. The MP coop is fun but the single player just shines. the best thing is there is little of that download for exta cost DLC/add ons like the Battlefield series ugh!!

Cons: The hardest level could be a little more nightmarish but just my opinion.

Other Thoughts: Ok I may only have an AS in Computer Science but to tell you the truth who gives a good rats behind about a players education, the software sure doesn't care lol.
I like this game and I think you will too. So how about my system specs:
AMD Radeon HD 5750,
Corsair XMS 4gb DDR3 1600(PC3 12800),
MOBO Asus M4A89GTD Pro AM3 890GTX ,
AMD Phenom 2 X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2 ghz Six Core (not overclocked).
The lesson here is READ the games system requirements before you buy it. If your system isn't up to the task don't blame anyone but yourself if you can't get it to run.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Game!

Pros: Best game I have played in a while! Great graphics and scenery plus multiple ways of attacking or meeting objectives.

Cons: At first my comp would flake out and eventually freeze a few mins into the game. Then a light bulb went off in my head. I check the power settings and my system was set at "balanced." 2 cores were parked. So, I set the power settings up all the way which makes all 4 cores and all 8 threads fire all the time. Can now play for hrs w/ settings on ULTRA/all the way up and not have any problems!

Other Thoughts: MB: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 R (purchased from Newegg)
GPU: GTX 970 4GB
Memory: 2x8GB 1866MHz Corsair Vengeance Pro (from Newegg)
CPU: i7-3770 (from Newegg)

5 out of 5 eggsBest Game in a long time

Pros: This is the best game I have played in a long long time. I first played Far Cry back in 2006 and became a instant fan of the game and waited years for Far cry 2 to be released. But when I played Far Cry 2 I was so frustrated and disappointed with that game being such a boring piece of work that I stopped playing that after few hours of gameplay.

I was really tentative about buying Far Cry 3 after I was burnt with Far cry 2 but after going through numerous reviews I thought to try it out and surely this is one of the better games I have played in a very long time. This has excellent graphics, perfect story line and awesome armory to be used. I am also a big fan of its open world, I loved being attacked by different deadly animals in this game lol.

You should definitely buy this game for PC, I am not sure why people had issues with uplay but when I downloaded and installed the PC version I did not have any issues while playing.

Cons: I guess may be they could make more weapon slots available and probably give us more liberty in saving the game.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent game with mod

Pros: Simply best open world sandbox type game around. Use Ziggys Mod at Nexus to make all the bad stuff go away on HUD and GUI things after first playthru, amazing when you play game like you are there and no interference from tips and guides. Try his hardcore master setting, it is a challenge, you can play the game as you like, it is your choice with his mod.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Get it for this price and put Ziggy's Mod on it and you will thank me.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: None

Cons: To start off with - I have:
-Gone to college for computer science and engineering
-Used computers avidly for more than 15 years
-Currently work for Geek Squad fixing software & hardware issues

Annnnnd this game... well, I'd review it, if I could. Uplay is by far the most pathetic bit of software I've ever laid my eyes on. Aside from being unnecessary, it doesn't install the updates properly on a 'just out of the box' custom built pc. Literally had my new pc running for about 5 hours and i cant get this game to work on it, or my older one. Seeing a lot of issues like this. Random errors that seem to be very difficult to diagnose, even for someone who does this every day for a living.

Other Thoughts: Avoid this like the plague unless Uplay is out of the picture. Go with steam.

1 out of 5 eggsUplay

Pros: Could be great game, can't yet play it.

Cons: Uplay has control of my game

Other Thoughts: Had previous review that stated I can't play the game. After much uninstalling/reinstalling finally found needed to install Uplay from their site. Wow! Finally got a screen to activate Far Cry! Except still can't play because it needs to be updated, and the update download stops no matter where I get it from. Again, I just wanted to buy Far Cry 3, install it, and play! Why do I have to go thru this Uplay garbage to play a game I have paid for? Three hours now, and maybe one day I will actually be able to play. I don't have high hopes.

1 out of 5 eggsWhoa...

Pros: Great Graphics, looked to be a Real Winner!

Cons: Bought 2 copies, mine and the wife's...

Oh Hecky Durn - My Wife gets into the 'Skill Building' phase of the game... and can't exit this process without wiping out a fair amount of previous efforts... <ALT>+<F4> was the only way to exit the screen!

Seriously? Ubisoft? It's a pretty obvious *bug* ... Not what I was expecting after Far Cry and Far Cry 2.

UPlay interface isn't that helpful either.

Rather disappointed in this game.

Other Thoughts: Off to the Ubisoft home page to see what's up with this really odd behavior.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat game!

Pros: Great Graphics, Excellent adult story, Cool progression of abilities, Just an awesome game.

Cons: Uplay, Crafting/Hunting can be tedious, but I suppose that is a matter of taste.

Other Thoughts: I can't figure out the complaints some of these people have with this game. This is one of the best shooters I have played. The open world allows you to push the story or do your own thing with a lot of side quests to pursue as well. The story and characters are great and well voiced. Weapons are varied and accurate and stealth kills are just awesome.

Uplay is kind of a drag, but I had no problems as far as it interrupting my game or glitching things up. The crafting/hunting mechanism can be tedious and cause you some hassle but my next paragraph will explain how to remedy that. Graphical glitches like clipping and pop up are rare if you have the juice to run it, but that should go without saying (notice "SHOULD" but since that was a few of the complaints I saw, I thought it should be addressed).

I lucked out in the way I chose to play this game and did not realize it until my second play through. The best way to play is to do all your hunting/crafting first while unlocking towers in the process. This will open up a lot of the game and get you the best equipment before tackling the main missions. Try to avoid run and gunning the encampments as taking them out quietly yields more experience and is a lot more satisfying anyway. There are plenty of run and gun moments in the game anyway, so enjoy those stealthy sections and get the most out of them. On my second play through, I avoided the camps entirely until I unlocked a lot of the stealth kill perks (and the silenced sniper rifle to take out guy on the towers or occasional stragglers). Another thing I did not really use until my second play though is the multi stealth kills, but is definitely worth using and getting good at. Nothing beats sneaking up behind a bad guy at a camp fire, stabbing him from behind, then quickly stabbing his buddy sitting next to him and finally throwing the knife across the camp to kill the last guy at the edge of the base. Adrenaline rush, silent and PRICELESS!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Game

Pros: Amazing Graphics, even on Med-High Settings. Has lots of scenic jumps, it is breathtaking standing on a tower and looking down. Plenty of wildlife to hunt.

Cons: Tower game mechanic might get old, but oh well. Sometimes enemy AI will drive by me standing almost in front of them, but this is funnier than annoying.

Other Thoughts: Runs great on my 1st gaming PC, 7870 handles it well.
