Far Cry 3 Review

Far Cry 3 is an outstanding game, and you can currently buy it over on GamersGate for the low price of £3.75, we've seen it go a little lower but it's still a decent price for a game that'll gift hours and hours of awesome, open world, jungle-based action.

However, spend a little more for the Deluxe version and you'll save yourself several quid on a bundle that includes the full game as well as all of the pre-order DLC -- six extra missions across two DLC packs, exclusive weapons and in-game items, and the game's soundtrack.

Far Cry 3 | £19.95 | Game Collection | PS3

At under £20 for what may be the first time, you really have no excuse to not pick up 2012's finest FPS experience. The open tropical paradise is packed with a wide variety of missions, tasks and collectibles. Stealth skills are fantastically fluid and empowering as you ninja your way through enemy bases, until you get attacked by a tiger that is. The multiplayer side of the game is excellent too, with the co-op proving a surprise highlight.

Far Cry 3 | £12.00 (With Code) | Green Man Gaming | PC

Gamestop's hilarious misprice has practically ruined Far Cry 3 deals for us now, but if you didn't pick it up for a fiver (along with all of its predecessors to boot), Green Man Gaming are currently the cheapest on the market. You're probably well aware that it's one of the best games of 2013, and quite possibly the best shooter, so this is still a bit of a bargain.

Far Cry 3 just waltzed in at the back end of last year and wiped the floor with everyone. Halo? COD? forget about it, 2012 belonged to Far Cry 3. You have a huge tropical playground to explore with multiple collectibles and mission strands to complete. A huge improvement over the last game with less malaria and jamming guns and more stabby stealth and pirate bases. Make sure you don't miss out on the excellent online co-op too.

BAFTA 2013: The Winners

Journey Returns Triumphant

Those of you who weren't glued to the footy may well have watched the BAFTA Game Awards last night, where two PSN exclusives managed to clean up. Journey returned with no less than five awards, including game design, artisitic achievement and even online multiplayer (called it), while The Unfinished Swan managed to snag two shinies for innovation and best debut. Other worthy winners include Dishonored as Best Game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown for Best Strategy Game and The Room as best of British.

We've got all the winners and nominations after the jump, thanks in no small part to the inestimable Late who actually beat us to the punch this morning.

BAFTA 2013: Journey Leads The Nominations

The British Academy Games Awards 2013 nominees have been announced, including a neat mix of big-budget AAA games and some deserving indie shouts.

Indeed, thatgamecompany's Journey has managed to steal the show, being nominated for a whopping eight categories including Artistic Achievement and Best Game. The Walking Dead, Far Cry 3 and Dear Esther follow (with seven, six and five nominations apiece), actually managing to beat the likes of Assassin's Creed III and Halo 4.

Of course, nominations are all well and good, but we'll find out the actual winners on Tuesday March 5th. We've got all the details after the break, everything from Action to Online Multiplayer and Ones To Watch. As always, we'd love to hear what you make of the choices - and your personal pick for the overall winners.

Far Cry 3 | £24.98 | Zavvi | PS3 / 360

In my opinion, this was easily the best shooter of 2012 and one of the most-improved sequels I've ever played. While I'm sure some of you are waiting for the game to dip below £20, this is still a great price. You get real value for money with FC3 as it has a huge campaign packed with extra side-missions and collectables. The multiplayer is stunning too, with the co-op stages in particular showing up the competition. Don't forget to check out my Survival Tips guide.

Extensive Far Cry 3 Patch Released for Consoles

Wow, this is a long list. Admittedly, I’ve barely encountered any of these and with any luck, I never will now. The patch fixes a range of issues in single player, multiplayer and the map editor.

Single player fixes include mission specific bugs, challenge leaderboard issues and a strange glitch that left weapons attached to your arm making aiming the bow a nightmare. Multiplayer updates fix issues with the loadout editor, weapon damage not registering and host migration problems amongst many others.

UK Games Charts | 12th January 2013

No change, please. A cursory glance at this week's UK games charts might make you wonder whether we've just copy/pasted the last one, with only a couple of titles shifting position in the bottom half of the top ten.

Anarchy Reigns, the only new major release, has charted at a fairly respectable 16th place. In what's becoming a worrying trend, you won't find even a single Wii U exclusive bothering the top forty - so here's hoping that the Q1 release schedule will shake things up a bit for Nintendo.

McLovin's Far Cry Adventure Video in Full

Back in November we posted an amusing live action video starring Christopher ‘McLovin’ Mintz-Plasse shooting a promo for Far Cry 3 that suddenly got very real. Think Tropic Thunder and you're on the right line. Well, after that teaser, we've found a video compiling all the episodes of The Far Cry Experience. Michael Mando (the voice of Vaas) stars in the video and steals the show, also proving he's a shoe-in if anyone decides to make the game into a proper movie.

Arguably the finest FPS experience of 2012 with a huge single-player game on a series of beautiful tropical island full of pirates and angry wildlife. Customisable skills, most notably some excellent stealth moves along with lots of exploration opportunities mean this will last you for months. multiplayer options include the usual modes along with one that sets the large areas of the map ablaze. The co-op levels are great fun too and much more enjoyable than the usual co-op horde modes as they feel like proper stages.

UK Games Charts | 5th January 2012

Another week, another disappointing showing for the Wii U. Third week straight without a single exclusive in the top 40, and if the numbers are to be believed, it hasn't had a stellar showing when it comes to the multiplatform titles either. The start of the January transfer window has, however, meant FIFA 13 zips back in to number one. Elsewhere, there's not much movement in the top ten - Skyrim sneaks back in at the expense of Ass Creed III.

UK Games Charts | 29th December 2012

Christmas week saw a last sales spurt from Ubisoft's hugely impressive Far Cry 3, which helped the jungle tumble outstrip FIFA 13 and Black Ops II to take Christmas #1. Forza Horizon sneaked into the top ten, having climbed eleven places from the week before.

There was precious little good news for the Wii U, though, with none of the platform exclusives making an impression on the top forty.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Typically, with our small staff size, there's simply no way we get to play all of the best games each in a given year, there's simply too much reviewing to be done. It can often make these end of year debates rather personal, with individual writers championing games that have had a personal effect on them, and the shortlists get longer and longer. There came a point where I was worried there'd be no overlap, that the internal voting process would yield only singular choices, rather than clear frontrunners.

Of course, all that really means is that the true winners of 2012 have been the consumers. We've seen genres busted wide open, brave new approaches to distribution and development, new ways to get projects off of the ground and in front of an audiences, new IPs when "experts" declared there'd be none. There have been mechanical marvels, fresh waves of indie innovation, sublime storytelling, wondrous worlds in which to wander.

Title

Description

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Borderlands 2

We described Borderlands 2 as "the best co-op shooter of its generation" and it still holds true to that accolade. Outstanding AI, superlative scripting, one of this generation's finest villains in Handsome Jack, and more loot than we knew what to do with, Borderlands 2 was a huge step up from its predecessor. Not that Borderlands 1 wasn't great, it's just that its bigger, badder, bolder brother was so very pleasing.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Dishonored

Dishonored did better than simply revive the stealth genre, it made us wonder why the hell it went away in the first place. Arkane delivered a blank canvas in Corvo Attano, with a commendably mature approach to player freedom that asked much of you, and delivered ultimate gameplay satisfaction in return. In Dunwall, we had one of the finest video game worlds of this generation. Nothing short of astonishing.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Dragon's Dogma

It was broken in places, and Gransys was one of the more forgettable worlds we've seen from an RPG, but Dragon's Dogma was one hell of an endearing game. Breathtaking combat, an innovative Pawn mechanic, and deep customisation options made it a firm favourite in spite of its flaws. Plus, the opportunity to take down a hole bunch of mythical beasts made it all the sweeter. Refreshingly mature.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 undoubtedly takes took the SP crown in the shooter category this year. Magnificently epic in scale, stuffed with things to do, and set in a living, breathing jungle, Far Cry 3 empowered the player to become the ultimate tropical predator, with a cracking story and lashings of immersion.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Guild Wars 2

It touted a rather bold MMO manifesto in the run up to its release, and while it didn’t quite match all the claims they were hoping for, what they did deliver provided the biggest shake-up to the genre in years. With a huge world that was an explorers paradise, personal stories that went in the direction the player wished, a scaling system that meant no content ever got out-levelled, and more PvP options than you could shake a Quaggan at, it gave players a complete MMO experience, all without an subscription.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Halo 4

343 Industries were up against it, the pressure must have been huge. Yet, with Microsoft's biggest frnachise in their hands, they pulled off the incredible: not only did the match up to Bungie's predecessors, they even managed to surpass some of them. Halo 4's campaign was excellent, but it was in the multiplayer modes that 343 really pulled out all of the stops. War Games is still giving us tons of fun, with expanded loadouts and greater gameplay variety than ever before. And then there was Spartan Ops: yes, there were examples of some lazy content recycling, but we've simply been having too much fun to care. An utter blast.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Journey

Gloriously life-affirming, utterly transcendental, Journey was one of those few games that not only provided a thoroughly unique experience, but also deeply personal one too. It didn't matter whether or not you considered it art, or even if you defined it as a "game", one thing was for sure: it was absolutely unmissable.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs was this year's little-big game that could. Dropped by Activision whilst it was still True Crime: Hong Kong, Square Enix snapped it up after a year in the wilderness and dropped it over the summer. Wei Shen's adventures provided the perfect antidote to the traditional sunny lull. Perfectly sized, utterly OTT, United Front Games refused to take themselves too seriously, instead providing an immaculately balanced open world game, stuffed with things to do, and supported with a near endless stream of cracking DLC.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

The Walking Dead

Telltale could perhaps have structured their releases with a little more organisatiion, and maybe fixed that infuriating cross-platform savegame bug, but otherwise there was little to complain about from The Standout Storytelling Experience of the Year. A cracking adventure game, with some utterly fantastic scripting and voice work, Telltale's take on Kirkman and co.'s zombie-ridden franchise was miles ahead of the TV series, and showed BioWare that it's possible to pull off a brave ending without compromise. There were tears. So many tears.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

Uncharted Golden Abyss

A staggering technical achievement, and undoubtedly the lead launch title for the Vita, Golden Abyss carried on the series’ tradition of excellent adventure games with all the familiar elements working fantastically on the new handheld. The list of collectibles had us replaying it obsessively, the Vita’s unique control features were used to fantastic effect, and the bar was set incredibly high.

Dealspwn's Game of the Year 2012

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a sensational game and a truly exquisite reboot. We fell in love with the series all over again, even as Firaxis blew the classic turn-based formula wide open for new players to consume and enjoy. Sid Meier and co. gave us the freedom to make many terrible choices over the course of countless non-linear campaigns, but the first one was simple: buy the damn thing!

Previously in this year's season of Game of the Year awards, we've dealt with difficult decisions by looking at the nature of the genre in question, searching for innovation from the games in question, forward-thinking approaches to development and distribution, value and longevity in content and effect, and how the games in question might define, or in some cases redefine, those genres.

But when it came to Game of the Year, presented with a clipped shortlist of Dishonored, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Far Cry 3, Journey, and The Walking Dead, we had to cross genre boundaries. There were games on the shortlist that didn't play by the book, so we threw the book out of the window.
