Far Cry 3 Preview: Holiday from Hell

Published 5 years ago by Jane Douglas

Far crying out loud

I come to a Far Cry 2 sequel with certain expectations - namely a wide open world, bags of freedom, and cars that handle like skittish shopping trolleys. Far Cry 3 delivers on all these points, but also and unexpectedly serves up a compelling story.

The plot riffs on a horror movie staple - a group of American youngsters with the temerity to vacation overseas, captured by native baddies - and in its more scripted moments produces intensity and drama to match. Add to that some engagingly unhinged performances and colour me pleasantly surprised. Press play on the video to hear all about it.
