Have I ever told you the definition of insanity? Its not fucking playing Far Cry 3! Its only one of the best games of last year. Machinima calls it “Skyrim with guns.” While I can see the comparison; with its vast open world, countless enemies, and crafting. I would say its more Fallout 3 meets Cabela’s dangerous hunts.
You play as a spoiled rich kid named Jason Brody. You, your two brothers, girlfriends, and a couple friends hit up this remote tropical island during your luxurious vacation. You ultimately draw the attention of the resident psycho drug lord, who promptly takes you all hostage. Its up to you to save your friends by battling hordes of pirates. All while being attacked by the local wildlife. Buffalo, tigers, and bears! Oh my! Nothing better than having a pirate in your cross hair to then hear the tiger that’s about to eat your face.
The game has plenty to offer. You can zip through the storyline, or complete side missions and collect Easter eggs. The side missions include helping island natives, hunting animals, and killing assholes. I did both endings about 15% of the extra stuff ending with 25-30 hours of game play; definitely well worth spending the 50 or 60 bucks. Lets not forget the 4 player co-op AND online multiplayer. Co-op is extremely entertaining with the right people. Basically consisting of shoot these guys, blow this shit up, and anything can be fixed with a blow torch.
So what are you waiting for?! Get this game now while all your friends are still playing. A word of advice: save your game before meeting Sam for the final mission. That way you can play the ending you want and then reload your save for the alternate ending. Or be lame and look it up
