About this game
Content Rating: Mature
With Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island. In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles they choose to fight to the allies or enemies they make along the way. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong.

So now that I’ve basically played them back-to-back, is Far Cry 3 Classic Edition better than Far Cry 5? Gameplay wise, no. The third game in the series still holds up and it’s honestly a lot of fun. Still, nearly everything (with the odd exception of the leveling system) is done much better in 5. When it comes to the story? 3 simply blows 5 out of the water. Ubisoft’s weird tale of insanity, self-discovery, and drugs is still one of their best. It’s totally worth playing again today, especially if you’ve never done so before. Just be ready to relearn some old tricks.
This is a very straightforward port of Far Cry 3, a game loved and loathed in equal measure. The Classic Edition is a great way for newcomers to experience one of the best games in the series, despite some clunky controls. Many people will have made up their mind about Jason's journey years ago, but on its own merit, this is a competent re-release of a fun, if a little dated, open world shooter.
A unambitious and streamlined remaster of one of the better games in the Far Cry franchise, Far Cry 3 Classic Edition nonetheless provides value and satisfying open-world shenanigans in spades.
