The Co-op mode of Far Cry 3 takes place six months before Far Cry 3, and the story follows four people who got scammed by pirates, and have to work on a cruise ship in order to redeem themselves (talk about a lousy cruise). While on board, the four workers pursue the pirates to Rook Island. Is this trip worth the adventure, or should you have chosen a different cruise?
Graphics-Once again, the island is flawless. The character models look good, the enemies look good, and everything fits into place perfectly.
Sound-The voice acting is good, but feels really stocky, and stereotypical.
Gameplay-The gameplay is very similar to Left 4 Dead, but you gain experience in order to unlock more weapons and modifications (something that Left 4 Dead could’ve utilized). One upside to the gameplay is you get decodable items while playing (drops are completely random), which will unlock more items (something that Left 4 Dead could’ve utilized also). One downside to the gameplay is that you’re going to be fighting the same enemies again and again, with VERY little variety (that’s not to say Left 4 Dead doesn’t suffer from this). Another downside is that you can’t pick which chapter to play (Left 4 Dead had this option).
Similarity-This game isn’t a complete carbon copy of Left 4 Dead, as the Co-op mode has a less stocky story (survival horror has been done to death (no pun intended)). What sets this game apart from Left 4 Dead is that you can only do Co-op with human players (Left 4 Dead has the option of playing the game with people or with bots).
Overall-The coop mode is worth playing. If you get the right people to play, you’re in for a fun time. Imagine if Gilligan came along for this cruise. Like to see how long he’d survive.
