Summary:

Far Cry 3 is an open world experience told through the first-person perspective. It is an action-adventure video game, forcing you to survive after a vacation goes awry. You play as Jason Brody, who must rescue his friends from the deranged locals. His experience on the island hardens him, making this a game that pushes the player to comprehend what it means to fight and survive. Using typical elements from role-playing games, you'll improve Jason's abilities through the use of experience points and skill trees. There is also a crafting mode available for those who prefer a more hands-on experience with the PlayStation 3. This lets you upgrade and enhance your equipment much like in other action survival games. These upgrades include silencers, larger magazines, and weapon sight improvement. As a first-person shooter game, Far Cry 3 lets you make use of the environment to survive.

FarCry 3 follows the fortunes of a group of curious American tourists who decide, unwisely, to venture away from the usual tourist routes to visit Rook Islands, a supposedly beautiful group of islands akin to paradise. Little do they know that the island, as well as being home to the indigenous tribe the, Rakyat, also houses groups of unpleasant undesirables such as pirates and drug barons, with their attendant thugs, who are in conflict with the locals.

True to form, the Americans fall foul of the undesirables and are taken captive, but Jason Brody, whose part you take, manages to escape and falls into the arms of the Rakyat who turn out to be friendly towards him. From them he learns the arts of tracking, survival and combat skills, and to manages to amass weaponry and various other artifacts, which he must first win by successfully completing tasks ,and which are essential to his avowed mission of seeking out and rescuing his fellow travelers.

He manages to save his friends one by one and then sets himself the task of destroying the pirate Vaas and his drug runner pal Hoyt. Of course this does not come easy and traveling around the islands, full of enemy barriers and checkpoints, requires a great deal of stealth. It is also necessary to fill in your poorly drawn and fairly bare map of the islands by climbing to great heights, some man made others natural, to view the layout.

There is plenty to keep the player occupied as gradually, one by one, enemy outposts are captured and taken over by the Rakyat. Many subsidiary hunter killer missions take place with these outposts as bases, and the bases must be kept supplied and enemies repulsed. All this takes place in a well depicted environment with jungle, swamps and beaches, with animals to hunt or just to watch.

Forget that the storyline is a bit far fetched and not always a well crafted linear progression, most game plots suffer from this, it is a fun filled game with plenty of things going on in subsidiary missions and mini tasks to to keep you happy for hours. After all its only a game.
