Has anyone tried the multiplayer? I had assumed it was just a throw away, but it's actually surprisingly fun!

I decided not to completely finish the game. Maybe I will at some point but I sent it back to GF for now. Has anyone done the man eating shark hunt? I was looking forward to it but I never seemed to unlock the right village for it

It is not as exciting as you would have thought. You need to kill it with a bow so you are not in the water until you need to skin it. They should have had it be with your machete. Frankly, crocs were much more scary when I ran into them but sharks did get the heart pumping.

I'm really interested in this game...but I never finished the first and missed the second. Should I try going through either of those first before picking this up?

Nope. It has more connections to Assassin's Creed than to the other Far Crys. Go pick it up, it's great!

There's no real reason as they don't share any plot between them. I've played them all and FC3 is the best out them all. Go for 3. Not that the first one and the "Predator" offshoot are bad, just a little outdated.

Thanks guys. I played some of the first years ago and enjoyed it but never did finish the game and somehow completely missed the second. I think I'll pick up this one when hits $30.

The 2nd one could of been just as good as this one but it suffered from one major flaw that they corrected in FC3. No fast travel and the map was huge. So if you died driving to a mission you would generally get pissed off and not want to continue. FC 3 corrected all that was wrong with FC 2 and added so much more

My biggest issue with the ending wasn't necessarily the cutscenes themselves but rather the ending gameplay.

No it didn't. I had a blast with the ending and it didn't feel rushed at all. What exactly were you hoping for? People always complain about boss fights but what would of been better? Honestly? It's a shooter. The boss fights were strange but they fight right in with the context of the game. All the boss fights were like that in the game. Making an interesting boss fight is not easy. A lot of games struggle with them.

Had the game since first week of release and just tried MP for the first time tonight and I agree it is fun. Looks like one of those games where the MP community might be active for awhile.

Absolutely loved Far Cry 3! I played it for three weeks straight, It's Skyrim with guns! My only regret is that I've done everything in the single player... WANT MOAR!

I dunno, one of them is certainly worse than the other! Talk about bizarre...glad I chose the "good" one ;)

I liked the game a great deal. I started to get burned out when the 2nd island kicked in and it's more hunting, radio towers, etc. Eventually I just decided to finish the main missions and felt like I sampled enough of the rest. Good stuff though overall -- felt like I got my money's worth.

Going to get the memory cards, relics, letters and outposts needed for their respective achievements then I'll do the last story missions.

I had a really difficult time with the game early on until I started crafting ammunition pouches and unlocked the F1, that gun is fucking beast.

Yeah, after reading comments on here and playing for the first time, I could tell if you didn't open up the extra ammo pouches and such it was going to be a real chore going thru the story. Anyone playing for the first time should sample the different gameplay modes as you go through and not just try and plug through the main missions. You'll get more out of it and it'll pay off making the game less stressful later on.

Great news for Far Cry fans. Game has shipped 4.5 million copies exceeding expectations at Ubisoft. Also says it will take less than 4 years for the next game.

Looking to get the co-op missions done while this still trades in for $27 at Amazon! Anyone want to group up tonight?

I have a session for tonight set up on TA with one space left, go for it. :)

The co-op kind of sucks... It's not like the main game at all. The enemies are huge bullet sponges (even on Casual) and ammo is really limited. It's like playing an unpolished Left 4 Dead and all of the zombies take 20 shots to bring down.

Yeah Ubisoft likes to exaggerate their movements. It gets you immersed though.
