The FPS genre has always been very popular among gamers. However, when you combine a first-person shooter with an open-world, RPG-like experience, the result is something that is truly unique. The most recent installment to the Far Cry series, Far Cry 3, utilizes this concept to its full potential. Being an FPS fan myself, I couldn’t resist picking up a copy of the game after noticing the abundance of popularity it began to receive over the past few weeks.
After Far Cry 2, it seemed as though this series would slowly fizzle out of popularity. Can Far Cry 3 bring it back to life? Let’s take a look and find out.
It’s safe to say that the gaming scene has witnessed what is easily more than a fair share of MMORPG’s in recent years. From the classics of Everquest and Ultima Online to the game-changing hit World of Warcraft and the myriad (yet slightly boring) EVE Online, there seems to have been no expense spared in sending eager players forth for gold, loot, and the life-consuming quest for an epic mount.
Now this would be all well and fine with me, but by some strange peculiarity we seem to have been left with a superfluous plethora of titles that, whilst borrowing heavily from Blizzard Entertainment’s magnum opus, seem to have been unable to capture its staggering popularity and lasting impression.
