Avec ce Far Cry 3, le séjour qui devait être ludique pour notre héros et qui se transforme en cauchemar devient un vrai paradis pour le joueur. Regroupant des ambitions sauvages, mais aussi délicates dans son approche, la totalité de ce jeu ouvert et libre est maîtrisée, que ce soit dans son gameplay, son ambiance, ou même encore son histoire. De plus, le contenu, pas chiche pour un sou, proposera des dizaines d’heures de jeu en solitaire, et encore plus pour ceux qui aiment les plaisirs à plusieurs. Probablement le meilleur FPS depuis pas mal de temps et qui peut se permettre de tirer la langue aux éternels Call of Duty, Battlefield ou encore Medal of Honor qui devraient prendre exemple sur ce qu’est un jeu varié, long, libre, original, complet, et finalement intéressant.
Brilliant. The last big release of the year, Far Cry 3 may well top them all. Almost unfalteringly entertaining, it’s a game that will have you coming back for more long after the credits have rolled, in order to seek out every nook, cranny and secret of the game’s tropical island. Chuck in a decent multiplayer suite, a fun co-op mode and staggeringly impressive map editor and you’ve got a winner. A must buy.
Far Cry 3 is a delightful and harsh tropical wonderland, crawling with wildlife and threatened by the pirates and drug runners that disrupt its peace. The troubled paradise you explore is colorful and wild, enticing you to investigate its ravines and discover new ways to enjoy the open-world playground sprawling in front of you. This is a game that ignites the desire to complete every last challenge and check out every last icon on your map. You gradually journey across the entirety of two sunny and sinful islands, hunting for rare game, speeding medicine to needy communities, and skinning sharks so that you might craft new wallets with their hides. Far Cry 3 is an excellent game, marred mainly by some irritating design elements and an inconsistent story that often defaults to generic "tribal" cliches to make an impact.
Me l’avrete sentito dire spesso di recente: ero scettico quando misi questo gioco nel lettore la prima volta. I filmati visti fino a quel momento riguardavano quasi tutti la versione PC, graficamente maestosa com’è normale che sia, ma Ubisoft non ha deluso i fan console regalando loro un’esperienza ricca, divertente e intensa. Ottimo l’ecosistema credibile e autonomo in cui ci inseriremo, soddisfacenti le animazioni e l’impianto sparatutto...un pò più debole la trama che mi ha lasciato un pò perplesso... Nonostante tutto un ottimo fps freeroam che vi consiglio di provare durante le fredde festività invernali: non ve ne pentirete!
Calm Down Tom
So Far Cry 3 is the best Far Cry game ever made. It avoids the issues of the first two games. It doesn’t have the enemies who see you through cover from a mile away (or the terrible mutant enemies) of the first game, and it has far more direction and focus than the second. It’s not just the best Far Cry game though, its one of the best games of the year. I didn’t expect it to be this good. I don’t think many people did. I haven’t even mentioned the amazing weather effects, the ability to spread wild fires, the co-op game modes or the hang-gliding. The truth is, in terms of innovation, design and outright fun, this is light years ahead of Halo 4 or BLOPS 2. If you buy one FPS this year, it should be this one.
Far Cry 3 réussit donc à faire cohabiter un GTA-Like extrêmement bien rodé avec une aventure solo parmi les plus ambitieuses de l'année. La concurrence est rude sur le créneau des FPS avec les sorties récentes de Halo 4 et bien sûr Call of Duty mais le titre d'Ubisoft possède de très sérieux arguments pour séduire les joueurs en manque de soleil. Un cadre paradisiaque, une action débridée, des personnages sous acides et un gameplay à la carte, Far Cry 3 c'est une invitation au voyage quatre étoiles, version all inclusive. Prévoir quelques pansements pour les ampoules sous le pouce, on ne sait jamais.
Far Cry 3 nous avait fortement intrigués lorsque nous l'avions croisé à diverses occasions lors de son développement et si l'on se doutait qu'il serait un bon jeu, on ne pensait pas qu'il serait aussi bon. Ca, nous n'avons évidemment pu le comprendre qu'en le soumettant à toutes les tortures pendant des heures et des heures. Et quoi que nous lui ayons fait subir, le titre d'Ubisoft s'en est toujours mieux tiré que ce que nous espérions. Far Cry 3 est un soft immensément riche et profond, doté d'un univers foisonnant de vie permettant à un redoutable gameplay, décomplexé et jouissif, de s'exprimer à plein. De par sa nature ouverte, le bébé d'Ubisoft se révèle capable de convenir à tous les types de joueurs et réussit en plus à surprendre dans des domaines où on ne l'attendait pas forcément. Le jeu vidéo à son meilleur.
Far Cry 3 executes beautifully on its promises, rolling together a massive open world, excellent stealth, smartly designed RPG elements, and tense gunfights into one smooth whole. The multiplayer fails to distinguish itself in any meaningful way, and a slightly smarter A.I. would’ve been nice, but those are the only things robbing Ubisoft of an uncontested victory. Ignore the online modes, and you’ll still get a wonderfully sneaky and superior gun game with Vaas — an instant inductee into gaming’s Hall of Infamy — as its twisted centerpiece. This is a dark ride well worth taking.
As a single player game, Far Cry 3 is a beautiful, wonderful and immersive title with so much to offer but it’s a shame that the co-op and multiplayer additions leave an ugly mark on the game overall. If these weren’t included then this would be a game worthy of top marks but instead, it tarnishes the title ever so slightly. However, do not let the uglier area of the game distract from what’s really on offer, because it’s unexpectedly and insanely brilliant.
vAndere Shooter wie Bulletstorm und Borderlands haben eine kindliche Begeisterung in mir geweckt, weil sie den explosiven Feuersturm als witziges Spektakel zelebrieren. Far Cry 3 verspricht hingegen einen intensiven Thriller, den es spielerisch ad absurdum führt. Zum puren Selbstzweck hat Ubisoft die Inselwelt mit allem überladen, was spielerisch möglich ist: Sammeln, Schießen, Fahren, Onlineherausforderungen – Far Cry 3 ist das rücksichtslose Durchregieren sämtlicher Stichpunkte, die die Marktforschung den Entwicklern vorbetet. Hauptsache, der Spieler kann überall jederzeit alles tun, was ihm in den Sinn kommen könnte. Diesem Motto opfert Ubisoft den Aufbau einer glaubwürdigen Welt. Es ist der ultimative "Offene Sandkasten" – das Wörtchen "Welt" hat darin keinen Platz mehr.
Quarter to Three
The “it could be worse” philosophy is Far Cry 3 in a nutshell. This is a good open-world shooter, with plenty of satisfying open-world gunplay, and it fits neatly into the annals of the usual open-world games, even if it doesn’t quite understand many of them. But the most notable fact about Far Cry 3 is that it’s not a sequel to Far Cry 2. It is instead a response to Bethesda’s success.
The Video Game Critic
Far Cry 3 was my designated "summer game" this year, and I enjoyed its edgy storyline, explosive action, and tropical locales. Unfortunately as I played the game more and more I found myself enjoying it less and less.
