The beef with FarCry 3 is the shear lack of motivation to do anything else other than the main quest.

For relatively little money you are able to buy your favorite weapon, or wait for it to unlock for free by capturing radar towers. Within the first 2 hours I bought myself what I think is the best sniper rifle ingame, attachments included. A few hours later I hunted enough animals to upgrade my rucksack and wallet. I don't have to do the sidequests and hunting quests for the money, so what's truly left for me to do other than the main quest? Explore? Why? To find more money?

Far Cry 2 did that part better. Only by collecting enough diamonds you were able to buy and UNLOCK weapons in the safehouse. In Far Cry 3 you can buy the best weapon from the get-go, provided you continued to loot every corpse and chest you could for an hour or two.

"Moo," she said.
And I trembled.
