Summary

Far Cry 3 takes you away from the role of a gung-ho super soldier, and into the shoes of everyday man Jason Brody - who just happens to be partying on the wrong island at the wrong time.

His vacation quickly turns into a horrifying adventure, as he tries to rescue his friends from a guerrilla army, led by unstable and dangerous leader Vaas. As he continues his journey, Jason will need to grow up pretty fast as he is forced to kill, hunt and survive the harsh elements of Rook Island.

The open world around you allows for a huge variety of different play situations. Radio towers need sabotaging in order to uncover parts of the map, while Vaas’ many outposts litter the island and need to be put out of action.

There is the necessity to survive on your own, using a combination of wits and island resources. You can hunt animals such as rabbits and boars, and skin their hides in order to build items using the extensive Craft menu through the pause screen. Various plants can be snatched up too, and combined to help contribute to the creation of weapons and potions. This world is about as open as they come, and there's a very impressive depth of content on offer.

As well as the rich single-player mode, there's a range of competitive and co-operative multiplayer modes on offer.

Escape a treacherous island full of lawlessness and violence, and save your friends from certain death.
