Far Cry 3 is like no other first-person sandbox game. Balancing the light and dark elements of the first two Far Cry games, Far Cry 3 presents an island filled with dangers, and where staying sane amongst the insanity is the most important tool to survive.
The island itself is an immersive open-world environment ready for you to explore. Boasting stunning visuals that bring the sun, sand, sea and jungles of the island to life and environmental effects so real you practically feel the heat of the sun, the cool of the breeze, and the trees and underbrush of the jungle as you pass through it.
But that's just the beginning. The free-roaming, sandbox gameplay means that you can play Far Cry 3 your way on an island filled with friends, enemies and surprises - and where almost every turn will uncover something new. There are plenty of side missions to undertake, as well as the need to gather the materials you need to keep yourself alive as you make your way around the island. Play it safe, play it stealthily, or play it guns blazing. Take your time, or take it right to the bad guys. But whichever route you take, the goal is the same – win over the different territories of the island and liberate it from the vicious Vaas.
