Hello there my internet friends! It is me Lefty with my second installment of my review of “Far Cry 3”. When we last left off I was just getting into the game play and the features of the game. Well I am about 15 more hours into the game and I have to say I am impressed. My character is really developing and I really get a sense of where this character is heading. My skills have increased and I am able to perform a lot more moves than I was able to before. Having said that, I get the feeling I will be maxing out my character way before I am halfway through with the game. Not sure where I will be if that happens, possibly bored since my character will be able to make it through just about any situation without too much harm. I will have to wait and see if that happens.
I usually have a tendency to plow through a game and finish it way before I have all of the “extras”, but this time I decided to play it slow. I have been working the side quests and I have been building my character’s skills. It has been rewarding and really fun. There is a real sense of achievement after you have rescued an outpost from those nasty rebels. There is also a hunting aspect of the game that is interesting. It provides a way to improve your gear and the gear cannot be bought in the shops. I kind of like that. You really “earn” your rewards with this feature. The action is tight and the AI is OK, better than a lot of games I have played before. Although it is hard to believe that every baddie in the game will make a bee line for any random noise that it hears. Also apparently the bad guys have actual shooting skills and you can die pretty quick if you don’t plan out your attack beforehand. How they can make a bee-line for me from a distance point after I use my sniper rifle is beyond me, but I have found that to be the case in a lot of games.
Overall, I would recommend this game. There is plenty of action and you also can think through attacks. You are not just crashing through with your gun in hand shooting up everything that moves. Although I have done that in a moment or two of panic 🙂 It is not a kid’s game. It is rated “M” so if you have younger ones you might want to steer them away from this game.
Talk you guys again soon!
