Far Cry is the third major installment in the Far Cry series, and it was critically acclaimed after launched for its design, gameplay and plot. Anyhow, critics didn’t like its multiplayer features.
The game was also a success when it comes to sales; it had sold more than 4.5 million units as of February 2013, and over 6 million copies as of May of the same year.
This is part of our Far Cry 3’s review:
Far Cry 3 just scares me. It’s far too well designed, far too addictive, too immersive. It’s… it’s just far too dangerous. Interestingly enough, this makes it hard to review. On every level, it delivers a well crafted experience. If you’re on a budget, this is easily the biggest bang-for-your-buck game, that I have ever seen. The amount of time that you can spend (and want to spend) in this game, is ridiculous.
