First Blood

Far Cry 3 • PlayStation 3

I did a play through of FC3 Blood Dragon a few months ago and loved it, so I had fairly mixed emotions about starting Far Cry 3. For all-intents-and-purposes, I thought FC2 was a shambles. Characters felt clunky, the story didn’t quite hit the Joseph Conrad level of mastery that they were shooting for, and the gun play was frustrating at best (and just downright crap the other 99% of the time), so I wanted to see where on the spectrum this third instalment fell.

It’s only early days yet, but already it feels better. Character controls feel heavier (which is a good thing) and the environment and character development/story already has me hooked. This trophy popped about 20 minutes into the game, which was about all the time I had for today, but that was enough to whet my appetite for more!
