I actually really enjoy Far Cry 5
Rather than like, dropping you right into the party at the very beginning, they could have done some worldbuilding. You'd have a 30 minute skippable story tutorial where you sort of just drive around doing small-town policing stuff, tracking down someone's kid who ran off on horseback, dealing with a dangerous animal, traffic stops, and all the while you keep interacting with this cult that keeps growing and growing.
So then they're ominous and scary when you chopper right into the center of their compound and all hell breaks loose.
I just finished my far cry 3,
the story and character progression is what makes FC3 better in my opinion.
The gameplay and everything you can do on FC4 is better but as a whole, echat: (https://echat.date)spin: (https://chatspin.download) it’s not as good as FC3
I just finished my far cry 3,
Starting of far cry 3 is everything far cry 2 was in terms of story but much better, the characters feel real are distinct. I wasn't expecting a lot of difference in the setting so my mind was also blown at how lush green everything was compared to the yellow in far cry 2. Another really great feature was the stealth mechanics that's introduced early in the game.
Now there were a lot of things I missed having, the most was the buddy system that far cry 2 gives you. I think it was absolutely amazing back when I first passed out in a gunfight and buddy showed up and healed me up and faught along side me. In far cry 3 all the "friends" show up after you've liberated the camp, and then shout " this is all me, alll me". Which is quite annoying, you didn't do anything.
Another really cool thing that I liked was how the weapons in far cry 2 would wear out after a while. Forcing you to try new weapons from fallen enemies, in far cry 3 this isn't an issue. I played the full game with a shotgun a sniper a assult rifle and a smg. I could tank everyone and every camp with the same combination which got pretty stale unless I pretended to make it intresting by going in and not using the sniper rifle etc.
One good thing was that malaria was no longer an issue, though even there I low key missed it because it gave a sense of urgency and kept me on my toes all the time. Intead we get some medical herbs potion thing that I didn't bother to use at all besides the health pack.
The best thing I found in far cry 3 was the animals and fire though. Fire is much better and doesn't work like a forest fire every single second like it does in 2. And the animals are pretty great addition, and great to use for distraction.
My last complaint with far cry 3 and probably the biggest is how much it holds your hand. I didn't like that my fight with Vass and the other guy was just knife fight where I was promoted every single move. The game seems to give you freedom everywhere and then suddenly takes it away when you are supposed to have it the most. It felt very anticlimatic. Infact I'd say it got a bit too linear towards then end.
Besides that I think farcry3s strengths lie in its characters and it's story. The full game plays really well. I hope ubisoft brought back the buddy system in the future games. I know 6 has buddy animals. Not gonna play it yet, but I hope it lives up to expectations and not 2 steps forward and 1 step back.
Far Cry 3 is an amazing game
The first word that comes to my mind when I want to describe the game is “masterpiece”. I am going to be honest with you – at first it may feel like another first-person shooter, without a doubt a good one, but not a great one. That's what I thought until the last 15 hours of the game. The game simply gets better with each hour you play. Throughout the walkthrough I was sure I am going to rate the title 9/10 top. In Far Cry 3 I didn’t see the scale and depth games are supposed to have in order to be rated 10 out of 10. Something was missing. I didn’t even liked that much the idea of gathering and crafting at first until I literally spent about 7 hours just hunting and crafting myself a bigger syringe kit, wallet, rucksack, whatever. What once was missing was found in the second part of the game - at some point a thought “it is a masterpiece” struck me and haven’t left me since then.
The storyline definitely is the main reason FarCry 3 belongs to one of the best games ever made. In a weird way the changes that happen to Jason Broody’s mentality and persona happen to you as well. Every character you meet is interesting and alive. Though Vaas is the only one who got to mainstream and basically transcended the game, he is not the only one who is worth your attention.
I could go on and on for a long time about what makes this game great but I think it is time to point out its downsides. For me the game has only one major downside which I would change if I had a chance to (attention: SPOILERS!): the way Jason Broody kills Vaas and Hoys simply doesn’t feel satisfying and “real” (especially Vaas’s killing). It is hard to explain but you expect more from a fight with your main foe.
