Gameplay

I played this game on the Xbox 360 so I can only talk about the gameplay on this certain system, overall the controls were very easy to master which is always a plus and being a lover of First Person Shooters this game didn’t fall short at least not with the controls.

Boss fights felt a little weak, but the storyline, missions and side quests make up for it. Wish they were a tad bit harder or at least more challenging, in a way it just felt like it was a little rushed.

This game however did challenge me, for even playing on the easiest setting I sure died a lot more than I usually do when playing any kind of shooter game. I did like how you would try parts of the mission so many times and if you couldn’t do it, it would push you forward to the next checkpoint. However, this game to me personally felt like it had its cheap moments but every game has its ups and downs, for example a part of the game you fight a bunch of people and majority of them had flamethrowers which are a pain to take out, but a challenge is always welcomed and thats exactly what I got.

Weapons

As far as variety goes I felt that there could have been more, though I didn’t really buy too many different ones so I can’t really say too much about it, maybe when I add this game to my collection I can go back and buy more weapons, complete more side missions and so on.

Multiplayer and Downloadable Content.

unfortunately, I didn’t get to play any multiplayer and I was trying to find someone to work with me that has played but I didn’t get any interested parties, so you wont be hearing about it from me maybe st some point i will blog about that feature as well as the Downloadable Content “Blood Dragon” since i have yet to play it but i am highly intrigued from what i have heard about it, 80s music, Dinosaurs, etc.

Far Cry 3 gets a 4 out of 5 Controllers

This game has action-packed fun, awesome graphics, a great story if you have yet to pick this game up go ahead and give her a shot! I hope you can overlook the slight problems and give this game a shot that it well deserves. I look forward to the next installment in the Far Cry series. Far Cry 3 has made me want to get my hands on those games as well.

In the third installment of the Iron Man series, Tony Stark is still trying to deal with the aftermath from the events that happened while working with the Avengers in New York City, which has caused him some serious anxiety.
A terrorist known as The Mandarin has made an apparance and is teaching the world a lesson.

Director: Shane Black

Overall a great movie just had a few qualms with it but they wont keep me from watching this movie tie and time again. I wont go into what problems i had with it because i dont want to spoil anything for those who have yet to see it.

Go take your significant other to see this movie I give it 2 thumbs up!
