X360A Review: Far Cry 3
Written Monday, November 26, 2012 By Dan WebbView author's profile
Far Cry 2 was very much a Marmite game in a lot of respects. Some people loved the freedom, the things Ubisoft Montreal did with fire and what not - well, most did - while others had their experience spoiled by the weapon decay mechanic, the endless travelling and the constant abuse you used to take on the open roads, even when you were just minding your own business. It split an audience.
Far Cry 3 represents itself as an opportunity for Ubisoft Montreal then. Everyone knew what held Far Cry 2 back. It was obvious. Did the Canadian games developer have the time, ability and foresight to see to all those niggles though, or were they determined to go their own way with their sequel?
