Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Far Cry 3

What? Why are you looking at me like that?

Yes, I am squirming. It's a huge disappointment after #2. On the positive side, they've created a huge, living world. The problem was, they then had to fill that world with stuff to do. Cue eleven thousand repetetive racing games, hunting, climbing towers, assassinating people with knives, clearing outposts etc.

It's all horribly compulsive. In fact I spent 90 mins after I'd finished the game getting a final silver trophy...horrible (but what can I do?).

So I am torn - the shooting is good, the stealth decent, the climbing and sliding is good, most of your progress through the absolutely amazing world (how did they put this on console?) is pretty smooth.

The main campaign, however, is possibly the worst FPS main campaign I have played - it's just a grim succession of fetch quests, hold-enemy-off-while-I-repair-this-thing, and escort missions. And QTEs. My god, the QTEs.

I can't in all faith recommend it. It could also be right up your alley, so I can't discourage people from getting it either.
