Far Cry 3 just feels short because it feels like an RPG. It is not. It's a shooter with RPG elements. It's actually quite long for a shooter. I've never played a game that made finding collectables more fun.

Gave it an 8. I'd definitely pick this over AC3 which I haven't even bothered to finish yet.

I'll be heading down to the post office later today to pick up my Insane Edition, so I'll vote after I've had a bit of time with it. I don't have an opinion on Assassin's Creed 3 yet, as I'm still waiting for my AC Anthology set to turn up.

So, I got this game the other day. It is one of the best games I've played on the 360. I'm just about done with the North Island and aside from some technical glitches the game is great. The story is engaging and I like the plot element of taking a kid who has never shot a gun before and turning him into a Rambo-like killing machine.

The hunting is on par with Red Dead, and the Wanted Dead quests are a lot of fun. The stealth is a huge improvement over Far Cry 2, where it was essentially broken. And there are many things to do in between missions such as poker, races, sharpshooting, hunting, outposts, radio towers, etc.

I've played Co-Op a little bit, and its pretty good. I have yet to play matchmaking though.

Overall- 9/10

I've only played about 10 hours but the game is amazing, not sure when the last time was I had this much fun in an openworld game. Love the hunting, outposts, missions, flying and driving off cliffs.

I gave it a 9, really enjoying my single player experience at the moment. A lot to do! And story missions are gripping. Excellent game!

I was gonna give it a 9, but dropped it to an 8 because of a plot hole. Stealth was really fun.

I wanted to buy it today but all the stores was sold out.

Can't wait to play this game with all the great review here!

And I do agree that Red Dead Redemption was one of the best game of this generation and I'm curious to see what Rockstar learned from this game and what they'll use of RDR in GTA V.

As others have said Red Dead Redemption to me was the best this generation had offered so far. I've now just finished Far Cry 3 and it's close but I think that it is just about edging RDR in to 2nd place for me. The story isn't as good but everything else is awesome.

Seriously impressed with what Ubisoft have managed to accomplish this late on in the current generation. Especially after what a pile of crap Assassins Creed 3 turned out to be.

both ACIII & FC3 start a little slow, the FC3's story is fantastic. i was really bored with ACIII i just couldn't finish it. FC3 wasn't the best game ever, but its one of the best of the year imo

Really awesome game! I love sneaking around in the bushes and taking out the enemies one by one with my knife or my bow.

The hunting was really fun as well, but didn't last very long.

The only problem I have with the game is that at times the fps feels a bit low, but maybe it's just my hardware that is giving me trouble.

Great game I give it a 9. I liked the fact that the driving and the swimming worked so well. I also enjoyed the humor Vaas was alright for a baddie.

Definitely a 9/10 game - got a few issues, but nothing major. Would recommend it to anyone. It's also huge step up from Far Cry 2, which I really didn't enjoy.

I would give it a 7.5, so I voted 8. It's a FPS game, so (in my opinion) that immediately docks it a grade or two. It reminded me a lot of the first Assassin's Creed, in that, initially I was all about the game... clearing outposts, the story, etc etc. After a while, it just became a total grind-fest. 32 outposts, doing roughly the same thing every time was just a chore. I liked certain aspects of the game, like the hunting, the RPG elements and the graphics, but coming after playing through Sleeping Dogs, every game is going to seem like a step down.

I haven't played much of ACIII, but I've played through all the others. Far Cry always felt like a FPS version of AC, like it mated with BF or something. Nothing wrong with that; I enjoyed this game immensely, and I would think that most people who enjoy the AC franchise would enjoy this game a lot as well.

I rated it 7/10 in the poll, but actually I'd rate it 7.5/10. It's an ok game, but it had too many collectables imo, and that kinda broke the story for me.

I gave it a 6/10. When I played it, I really liked it. But thinking about it made it way worse. Vaas was brillant, but terribly underused, so was Hoyt. I also friggin hated Jason, what a douchebag character. The story was kinda meh and the graphics were fine (after I installed it. Before that, it was near unplayable...). The open world was cool but the hunting system was terrible. I really have to hunt down a rare tiger to carry more money? So basically my warriorlike character has a tiger fur purse? That'll look kinda odd, to be honest .

The game does feel repetitive after a while, but it's a Ubisoft game and they sure know how to make 'em repetitive!

For what it's worth, you won't many other games of its kind. Worth every penny and worth playing over multiple times, that is if you don't get annoyed at doing the same thing over and over.
