Synopsis & Feautures:
Far Cry 3 is an interesting video game featuring first-person shooter as well as role-play game elements (experience points, skill trees and a crafting system). Taking cover behind objects to break enemies' lines of sight and take a peek around or even over cover and blind fire, the player can do it all. The player can even perform silent - takedowns by performing melee attacks from above, below or close behind. The story mode map, according to the game’s narrative director, is around ten times larger than previous instalments. Players have the opportunity to survey and plan out their attacks using stealth takedown combinations and also tag enemies with the camera. Simple system controls the equipment and as missions are completed, new items get unlocked to be purchased or crafted by Jason, using the pelts of various animals in the Island. For example: Unlocking a radio tower opens areas of the map and unlocks weapons in the shop for free. Players can collect skills with the experience of completing missions and killing enemies which are unlocked in three skill trees - the Spider, the Heron and the Shark. What’s interesting is that each skill tree upgrades different aspects of Jason's abilities. The Spider upgrades Jason’s stealth takedowns and hunting skills, Shark for assault takedowns and health, while the Heron upgrades long-range takedowns and mobility. The tattoo on Jason's forearm also grows as he collects more skills.
The game has a variety of side-quests featured for the player as he hunts for different wildlife species found on the Island all for upgrading purpose. It also has some rare hunts which the player must undertake to reach the highest level hunt upgrades.
