    Extremely entertaining, fun as hell to play, decent enough plot, interesting characters (although some are pretty lame too), and it looks awesome.

    It's the first fps to hold my attention in a long time.

    I still want the multi-player to just be a single-player Co-op. That'd be amazing.

    Am I the only one who felt this game was too easy?

    I mean, I played it on the max difficulty and it was a total breeze. Hardly ever a challenge, and I even got every skill leveled up by the endgame.

    I also thought it was too easy. While its still an excellent game it gives you too many good guns to early on, the AI isn't particularly special and at times they were flat out dumb. Stuff like crouching in foot tall grass suddenly makes you invisible broke the suspense of sneaking around and silently picking off enemies. Not to mention even on hardest you are still basically a bullet sponge.

    I still got my ass kicked way to often on Survivor. Then again, I probably should've bought body armor.

    Wow, at first, when my friends told me how white the main character of FC3 was, I didn't believe it until I saw that video; dude sounds extremely bro-ish.

    Still, I can overlook that and I'll get it the game for my birthday or something.

    All I want is free roam. Game worlds like Skyrim, JC2 and FC3 are begging for co-op free roam.

    Its a great game, I just felt it had little replay value, outside of MP and co-op, which are boring to begin with. I know a lot of people who disagree, but that's my two cents.

    Definitely worth getting regardless.

    not really. it's generic and a gimmicky FPS game you have played a thousand times before with some "edgy" story to it.

    not to mention gta V and HL3 that are knocking on the door, there's absolutely no need to spend money on bullshit like far cry3, black ops 3, borderlands 2 or what have you.

    DotA 2 isn't even like FarCry 3 at all. At least suggest a game that's in the same genre of FarCry 3.

    GTA V, I agree, looks good, but to call FarCry 3 bullshit? Nah, it's really good.

    And last I checked, Half Life 3 ain't even at the door yet, so I'm not sure why you'd save your money for that...

    You didn't like it, fair enough.

    I think the singleplayer is pretty fun, especially the gimmicks like the wing suit, as well as watching a croc or tiger take out a bison or person is always entertaining. The co-op was terribly boring in my opinion, the first mission we tried was basically "GO A TO B, SHOOT ANYTHING RED". Not very engaging.

    never say never.

    but as for some quick reasoning why FC3 sucks.

    For example the bandage animation; it is the same animation all over again starting from the very first time you ever used the bandaging.
    It doesn't even matter where you got shot, you will just quickly wrap a bandaid around your arm like the thousand times before. Woop! Same goes for extinguishing fire from yourself.

    Also, where do I start with the "ohh, the player so scared, not used to shooting weapons" when after the first 15 minutes of play you get an AK and kill lots of people, despite the player being "newbie". Immersion break, much?

    Also skinning animals and you hear the same "Ugghh disgusting!" over and over again until you reach the scripted point where you are no longer "disgusted!" by it, but I never got that far anyway.

    Edited:

    Not to mention bones breaking, there is probably a one or maybe even a whopping two different animations for that.

    I'm sure the developers would enjoy making one different animation for every time you pressed that heal button. 3GBs of healing animations, just for you.

    None of those are gameplay related. All of those are minor continuity errors that cannot be changed unless they force things upon you.

    Some people complain about amnesia where it forces effects on your player when you are "scared" with the argument that "if you are scared, you will act scared."
    So unless they force crazy inaccuracy which EVERYONE would hate, there is no way to enforce the "never fired a gun rich kid" character.

    So lack of a bazillion animations for every single instance and minor continuity errors that don't majorly effect gameplay or story make the game suck?

    Now thats bullshit.

    lame reasoning
    It is specifically mentioned in the game that the player character was already adept with firearms before the events of the game, which still supports the player's reasoning that he "never shot anyone before."

    Also, the "Ugghh disgusting" argument is pretty moot as well, because in RDR, a game praised by damn near everybody, Marston will comment on how disgusting it is to gut animals and how dead folks won't need their cash anymore.

    And even with the healing animations, you only see them if you don't have any syringes, which pretty much means you're screwed in most situations.

    And that's all technical/presentation, having very little to do with the actual gameplay, which does not suck.

    Protip, if you want to criticize the game you should bring up some of its key problems. Like the gameplay that gets old quick, the absence of challenge even on the highest difficulty, the plot holes and dropped plot elements that are never brought back up again, the wasted potential with many characters, and the laughably shoehorned "moral choice" ending that leaves an abruptly bad taste in your mouth.

    It's only easy because you're doing it wrong.
    The only real way to play this game is using only the Skorpion, Revolver, Flare Gun and the first shotgun whose name I forgot, no syringes, no silencers, no vehicles or turrets, no wingsuit and no sneaky snake.
