If you haven’t read it already, be sure to read Rachel Gray’s review of Far Cry 3. The game received a score of 83% and was, on the whole, recommended for gamers to play despite a less-than-stellar storyline. The game’s highlights include being expansive, diverse and action-oriented. The game received a perfect 10/10 score for the audio work thanks to some of the best voice acting and ambiance in a game released this year.
For the multiplayer more, there are four major new features included. The first is the “Map Beta Test” which offers players who upload a new map the option to publish it as a beta test to monitor how it is played and improve it before officially releasing it. Another new feature is the option to sort maps by author, so players can search all the maps specific to one creator. There’s also the “Idle Kick” function that gives the ability to kick out idle players during a multiplayer match and remove them from custom and private games. Finally, there were improvements made to the skip map voting system so that is has more visibility and time to cast votes.
