Far Cry 3 Review | King Of The Jungle

Platforms: PC | PS3 | Xbox 360 (reviewed)

Developer: Ubisoft

Publisher: Ubisoft

Far Cry 3 is nearly the perfect sandbox.

It's big, of course. Very big. The Rook Islands become a truly enormous playground good for dozens of hours of continued adventuring, stuffed with all manner of exciting shenanigans and unpredictable wild animals. It's well-crafted too, in that every square foot of terrain has been sculpted to make a fun and accessible environment for us to climb, drive and generally mess around in.

But Far Cry 3's greatest triumph lies behind the scenes: superbly versatile and unimpeachably solid core systems that constantly empower the player, making you feel like a consummate badass regardless of whether you're using stealth, cover, gunplay or fire to get the job done. What most games only let you watch in cutscenes, Far Cry 3 freely lets you do on a minute-by-minute basis. So long as you're good enough, you'll become a nightmarish jungle legend made flesh.
