While we're at it, Mario is a terrible platformer.
Perhaps "garbage" was too harsh a term. It was still bad, though. From the incredibly easy stealth mechanics that destroyed any illusion of challenge, to the completely un-enjoyable missions (well, OK, that one with the flamethrower was fun in a silly way). The only remotely enjoyable part about the game was clearing outposts, and after the first five hours or so, that became a chore just like everything else. I did enjoy it at first. Unfortunately, it's a game that becomes completely un-engaging and monotonous if you play it for more than an hour or two at a time. The music was forgettable, the story was uninteresting and the gameplay was simply too easy. At least the weapon upgrade system was alright. I guess?
I dunno. 4/10 game. Comparing Far Cry 3 to fucking Mario is absurd, by the way. A closer comparison would be DOOM. Which is great. DOOM is the greatest.
