It's understandable that Jason develops over the story but I think they could have set it up in a different way. If they segmented skill unlocks based on requirements that needed to be met in the world it would have worked better and flowed more naturally with free roam.

For example, performing a certain amount of takedown from aboves unlocks the double takedown from above, a certain amount of regular takedowns unlocks the chain takedowns, a certain amount of animal encounters unlocks the various hunt related skills. This way you feel as if you are actually becoming a badass through experience- the more you use a certain weapon, the faster you get at reloading and the better you get at hip firing. Skills like fire resistance and being able to stay underwater longer can be story related unlocks as they have more of a supernatural progression behind them.

Of course this is all just an opinion, I do still love this game.


I actually like this idea. I am finding the unlocks to not be that much of a hindrance except that I am taking skills now that I may have just waited on. The progression system you suggest is a great idea though.

Make sure you guys are able to liberate two outposts without being detected or you won't be able to learn the ninja step skill and miss out on the Fully Inked achievement. Snipers with silencers are your best friend if you're terrible with a bow ;)

I think my issue lies in the fact that I basically spent 9 hours free roaming and 3 hours on story lol. Even after unlocking a part of the tree after meeting Citra I had sp left over

I finally got this game on Saturday(Gamefly), and gotta say I'm loving the hell outta it so far. Hunting is actually pretty fun in the game and the skill layout is fun to mess with. So far I'm trying to split 50/50 time on main quest and outpost/side missions.

Well I am getting some Co-Op in and surprisingly I like it. They throw enough at you that really 4 people are need so you never feel like one person is stealing all the kills. There are 2 things that are horrendous though.

1) The connection is pretty bad. Lots of glitching around the screen at times. I most likely won't play MP because I traded it today and using a free rental from Red Box to finish achievements but if the connection MP is like Co-Op it has to be a horrible experience.

2) No chapter select in online public Co-Op. WTF? Easy to get into a game but if you are achievement hunting it is a crap shoot in what mission you start in and then sometime it will repeat old missions. Very Very bad. Yeah if you form a party and do private you can but I do not have the time for that. Also, if you drop into a game you do not get the credit for the achievement on that mission. I have play 5 missions so far and only got credit for 2.

I didn't like multiplayer at all. They should have just focused on single player to make an even better game. Why do people feel the need to have multiplayer? Not all games need it.

. I'm definitely keeping my eyes open for Far Cry 4, but it's criminal how little face time you got with Vaas and his brilliant voice actor. I swear the best VAs I've come across have some serious theater experience. I haven't hung on every single word of a video game antagonist since Andrew Ryan of Bioshock. A crying shame how they chose to handle him.

Didn't read your spoiler, but I feel exactly the same - even with the Bioshock bit. Could have done more with him.

Yeah Vaas was definitely more interesting than Hoyt but overall the voice acting in this game was top notch. Really the weakest performance was yourself (Jason) which was the biggest hold up in making the story more convincing.

Certainly feels like the game dropped a notch after Vaas. The second island also gives you way too much exp, I was fully inked literally an hour in.

If you're willing to put this in front of whatever backlog you have, definitely. You can put a solid 20 hours or so into the SP itself. The coop and mp aren't really worth mentioning

Yeah Put 25 hours into SP and about 6 hours into co-op to get 1000/1000 on achievements. Never tried MP mainly because the connection was so bad in co-op. I thought co-op was fun since I played the SP with a lot of stealth so it was fun to go full tilt guns blazing. The connections are so bad though that it was laggy big time plus lots of bugs. We had to kill ourselves several times to reset the checkpoint because enemies would not spawn or the next part would not load. If you are going to play it right away I say go for it. My second favorite game this year so far (Borderlands 2 #1).

Did you try restarting the mission? You can also end it and try starting it again after doing some side stuff. Never experienced a glitch in the SP.

wow just finished the campaign.

amazing. finally far cry has a good story. far cry 2 was terrible and tedious.

i really hate the fact that there are no achievements for getting 100% in the story mode. heck, theres no need to collect more than 60 relics since there are no achievements for getting all 120.

im at 118, but the other 2 are glitched for everyone apparently.

anyway, i like jason brody. great character. would love to see more of him.

time to weigh in now. im 20hrs deep and addicted still. its really fun hunting and crafting and even taking over outposts i enjoy. the story for me is on and off....at points i really like it then at points its total butt.

the random shit that happens is sick as hell just a few examples.......i was walking down a road and was being followed by a tiger, until an NPC driving a jeep ran him over going about 80mph i was like holyyyyy crap. the best stuff is when im scouting out an outpost tagging the baddies then a bear just happens to walk into camp and literally take them all out, outpost cleared and i didnt have to move a muscle.

some heavy spoilers here be cautious. one thing i really dont like or "get" is

anyway im only just on the second island so i still have work left maybe buy the time im done it'll make more sense. regardless super fun game.
