Review Roundup: Far Cry 3

Format:
Nestled in amongst such titans as Black Ops II

Release Date: 22/11/2012

Nestled in amongst such titans as Black Ops II, Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed III, offbeat tropical shooter Far Cry 3 could easily have been overlooked. That seems unlikely now that the game, which is out on November 30th, has attracted some of the best reviews of the year.

Eurogamer is the most enthusiastic, dishing out a coveted 10/10 score and declaring it ""the new apex predator of open-world shooters". The review offers the game's open world freedom as its strongest asset, suggesting the game's unpredictable world makes it "a glorious anecdote factory, where you manufacture brilliant new memories every time you wake up in a safehouse and head out into the jungle."

IGN scores the game 9/10, with particular attention paid to the dark storyline which casts you not as a rock hard supersoldier, but a terrified tourist trapped on an island with maniacal criminals. "As its unpredictable, often uncomfortable story comes unhinged," says the review, "Far Cry 3 challenges players' principles: How far would you go to protect the people you love, and what kind of person would you become to get them back?"

PC Gamer joins the praise parade with an 89% score. "You've got a huge island to explore, ridiculously effective tools for scouting every hostile situation, and so many clever intersecting systems to inspire creative ways to conquer them," it reckons. "It's a better stealth game than Far Cry 1, set in an open world that feels richer than Far Cry 2's. That's an amazing thing to play."

Far Cry 3 is out on November 30th for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
