after getting every achievement, i still play it

after alot of time played, i can give a good review. first the only bad thing is there is no story dlc. i love the story, side quest, taming, crafting, map, animals and challenging difficulty. play on the hardest difficulty, AI is smarter and its more rewarding. took about 112 hrs to get 100% done. people who give it 1 or 2 stars cant beat it on easy. best far cry game ever. 3rd favorite game behind skyrim and fallout 4🙂❤

The Beginning

Farcry delivers a new experience to FPS farcry takes you back to a simpler time during man kinds claim though civilization and up the food chain between beast and man. I enjoyed this survival cave man twist on your everyday run of the mill's FPS game an if you want new an different than this ubisoft game gives it to ya. I enjoyed the drone and the upgrades you can do to it yes the game has flame throwing weapons & air defense techniques you can be warriors when taken on the evils that are everywhere or you can go ghost i am a more stealth player and hunter. I liked the controller machines easy to learn and simple the story telling is over the top and lip sync is pro at best there is no negativity for this game as long as you understand it's not gun's and trucks like some of you simplest thinkers have grown to love to much. I say yes this is a good title so buy it.......

good story nothing else

like the voice acting story is decent but few weapons atlatles blowdarts slings would have fit the times traps much wider range of wildlife would help its repetative not challenging and has a weak unatractive skill tree a indie 5 dollar game at best graphics and sounds are bad controls are good yet the real deal breaker just poor gameplay crafting sucks leveling unlocks no change in play again it repeats defend from small dumb AI attack dumb AI REPEAT if standard fps shooters and rpgs are to hard maybe maybe give this a chance shoot heal or sneak use the same 3 weeapons over again u will breeze along and no worries theres no dif in melee typical hard or quick melee

This addition to the series fell short, IMO. The storyline wasn't great, I missed guns, and I died, a lot, in battle. Loved the "pets" though! That needs to stay for future games.

Beautiful Game

Primal is hands down my favorite game of the series so far. It has a beautiful environment and easy interface. The story missions are fun and exploring is engaging. Easily better than FarCry 4.

The achievements were easy to get which was nice if you are an achievement hunter like me. The graphics were great and I always found myself hunting for rare animals to tame or for the skin. The land was vast and beautiful and thanks to all the mountains you get a great view of the land. My favorite thing about this game? On some of the female characters there was a breast hanging out. Now its not like I would stare at it I would just walk by and think, "Nice". Overall I loved this game, I loved the weapon system, the crafting system, the beast system, the healing system, the stealth system, the map, the enemies, the achievements, the side and main quests, the graphics, and finally the humor in this game. Loved it and cant wait for the next one!

Good Job

I bet people before were all like,"There is no way there would be a Far Cry game without guns." But they were wrong. Love the game, it's very fun and awesome.

My FarCry Vet review.

Amazing addition to the series. Not the best one in the series but truly has the FarCry feeling. It's like all the others except without guns. Imo FarCry 3 is by far one of my favorites in the series, FarCry 4 was beautifully done. FarCry 3 MP is by far one of the best MPs in the series. Been praying one day that they make FC3 backward compadable for the X1. Wouldn't say this is a 5 star but definitely a solid 4. looking forward to the next installment in the series.
