Trivia

Vaas, the game's most notorious antagonist, was almost not in the game at all. Originally, the writers intended to feature an antagonist named Bull, that is until Michael Mando auditioned for the game. After seeing Mando's audition, the developers scrapped the idea of Bull in favor of a bipolar, sociopath villain to match Mando's energy. See more »

Quotes

Vaas: What, you want to run? Huh? You want to run, you want to disrespect me? You want to fuck with me? I mean, you come here, with your... with your pretty-boy face, right, and your pretty-boy phone, your dimwit brother, and you want to fuck with me. *You want to fuck with me.* I like that - no, I *respect* that. I'm gonna give you thirty seconds, and if the jungle doesn't eat you up alive, *I will.*
[Jason hesitates]
Vaas: Are you *FUCKING DEAF?* I SAID, GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE, YOU CHICKEN FUCK! RUN, ...

Amazing installment in the Far Cry series!
7 December 2012 | by mikedunlap45See all my reviews

I have been waiting for a game like this for a long long time, it has all the elements of a great FPS RPG that most people look for. Great characters, great story, absolutely BEAUTIFUL graphics and gameplay that is out of this world.

This installment took a different direction than the first two, it takes the level design elements of the first Far Cry and the RPG aspect of the second but with a lot more interesting stuff added, just about everything you can do in the first and second, you can do in this one which it makes it that much more fun when it basically brings back the level design of the first one and adds the elements from the second as i said before. The game is simply amazing with a lot of fun stuff to do and a whole different game experience unlike any other, the weapon selection is fantastic! and the game definitely brings back nostalgia for the farcry fans.

sure there are some flaws like screen tearing in the consoles versions , however it is only noticeable when your looking for it...the game otherwise is all around fantastic!

be sure to pick this beauty up! don't miss out!
