I have the same feelings about Fry Cry, those mutants ruined a lovely experience for me. It was a time in gaming where studios / published thought they HAVE to throw in some kinda animal / mutant / zombie type enemies and not just have humans as the main enemy.

Also enjoying FC5, think I played a little of FC3 and my PC or something didn't like it, so I'll revisit it now it's free. And looking forward to FC6.

I liked Far Cry until the mutants showed up. I quite FC2 after an hour because I couldn't stand the interface and the driving. Until now that was the last FC game I have played. I recently finished FC5 and I loved it, except the ending and the forced story missions (that was atrocious). I liked the setting, Montana looks beautiful and I liked the plot. The voice acting was superb. Currently I am also enjoying New Dawn.
Now we donce.

Game wise FC4 was better but I got so sick of the story's main quest (fake choices) I stopped playing.
I'm guessing gameplay is even better in FC5 but all the other horrible ubi still there, crap story and crap forced captures.

Thanks Acleacius !
Didn't know it existed as it's not mentioned on Steam, when I searched for DLCs.
But it's free and included there :
"31 ene. 2013 — All new content for Far Cry 3 is Now Available for Free on Steam!"

Start game, then Co-op, then Online Co-op, then Private, then Match settings, then if in the list of co-op maps you can see Jailbreak and Redemption - this is your High tides DLC.

And the Far Cry 3 Deluxe Bundle DLC
Includes six single-player missions, four rare animals to hunt, a bow and flare gun for multiplayer, and all other previously released retail bonuses in The Monkey Business Pack, The Lost Expeditions, The Warrior Pack, and The Predator Pack.
So, without downloading, I got lost with this
No problem, glad to help but I don't understand your last sentence. What do you mean you "got lost with this"?
If your not sure, those are the additions to the Single player game, i.e Deluxe Bundle DLC.

I sure hope you use mods in your game, no idea if ubi let's you use mods but there are some good ones on nexus.
https://www.nexusmods.com/farcry3
You should definitely check out Ziggy's and Immersive Sounds.
You'll spend 5 min reading, 5 min installing and get the best the game has to offer.

I understand the complaints most people have, but it was a game released in 2012.
Yes, the dialogs, the story and characters have weak stories, at times.
It's the Far Cry formula, forced capture for exposition and all of their games do it.
The game does drag on too long because there are 2 areas, when you think you've won the game is only half done.
It was far from perfect but att it was fun if you liked open world games.

This and Blood Dragon were the last Far Cry games I've purchased.
I completed Blood Dragon but never FC3. The game is exhausting and I found most characters irritating. But mainly, FC3 was where Ubisoft's design template (that they used on AC games too) wore too thin for me.

Some recent posts about FCPrimal have got me curious that may be worth my time.

I played Far Cry 3 for a bit but remember growing tired of it at some point and only really discovered I barely was anywhere yet with the game at that point. Never tried Blood Dragon because it did look too over the top/whacky for my tastes. This probably is moot with regards to everything else I play, but I just never got around to caring enough to look into it.

Far Cry 5 was also pretty damn boring to me. I initially gave up early on finding it so dull and lacking of any personality. To my surprise, New Dawn which a lot of people trashed on, I had a blast with it. It felt like Mad Max and I enjoyed the colorful environments with home made fabricated weapons. I actually played it to the point of trying to 100% achieve it but never reached that. Fast forward like 2 years later and I finally got around to trying Far Cry 5 to get my fix again and this time around I got into it. Ended up actually beating it. Yet I'll still say, it is pretty damn dull overall and I'd take New Dawn experience over it again 100%.

Far Cry 6 is looking good though. Hope it's plays as good as it looks though.

Strangely Far Cry 3 has no DLC.
Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is a standalone game in another place, with a different and crazy story.
Think Far Cry 3 + Duke Nukem + Saints Row + 80s surreal disco lights.


I know I'm alone here, but I feel like FC3 was a dry run for FC5. Take a fun core game, strip away much of what made it unique, give it a bland plot, and destroy any need for exploration.
I hated Blood Dragon. Sure, dinosaurs were cool, and the retro future visuals were fun for a bit (then eye searing), but it really took FC down to such bare bones that the gameplay felt so limiting to me. Which is sort of how I'd describe FC5.

Actually I think it does. Iirc, as Cyanotetyphas mentions does exist but it's 90% for Coop online (not the main game) for a couple of missions.
Going from memory here, it does effect the single player game like adding a few minor quests and bug fixes.
I don't think any outlet even sells the original FC3 without the DLC. So if you've bought/received the game in the last 4 or 5 years, it's got the DLC.
Unless this is another ubi scam, giving the main game then trying to sell you the DLC for $7 to $10 usd.

You fool! Don't you know they're only giving this free game to you in hopes that you spend more money with them in the future?
That's wrong, according to certain poster here!
Me? Nah, but I would wanna warn Giggle WannaLogAlready this is ubi, so it's like a date with crosby. It's arguably one the best in the series but
unless something has changed it installs a date rape drug spyware/malware you need special tool to remove.
ubi doesn't tell you it's installing and it stays installed without your knowledge after you uninstall the game.
I had to go to crosby's punkbuster's website to download a special tool to remove it.
