Far Cry 2 was and still is an amazing single player and multiplayer game. The single player featured an interesting story but also featured an open environment that is so dynamic and ahead of its time. The multiplayer also had a map editor which is never present on a console game especially for first person shooters.
Continuing this success is Far Cry 3 which comes out on September of this year. The story is simple, you and your friends crash on an unknown island only to be kidnapped and be caught up in far worse situations and the game centers around surviving.
Not the most original of stories but its only a beginning and I’m pretty sure it has much more to it once it advances. The latest trailer is amazing!
