FAR CRY 3 User Reviews
With Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island. In this savage paradise, where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles they choose to fight to the allies or enemies they make along the way. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of morality.

Alias Toufexis, voice actor for Adam Jensen in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, stated that he was originally the voice of Jason Brody. He worked on the role for 2 years, but after Deus Ex: Human Revolution was released during Far Cry 3's development, he was replaced. This was allegedly because the developers were nervous that anybody playing Far Cry 3 would think about Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Alias Toufexis has also said that he found this dismissal to be justified and understandable.
To promote the game, Machinima shot a short web series called "The Far Cry Experience" starring Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Michael Mando as Vaas. This is referenced in the cover for the game. You can also find Chris's head in the sand in the game, which will get you the "Say Hi to the Internet" achievement.
One of the main villans, Vaas Montenegro, shares more than just the voice of actor Michael Mando. Michael also contributed his likeness and motion capture work to developing the face of Far Cry 3
Early reports had only Jason and his girlfriend on the island, and in something of a variation of the first Far Cry, Jason was a journalist.
Vaas was added very late in production, with large chunks of the script rewritten to focus on him instead of the rest of the villainsQuotes
Vaas: "Did I ever tell you... the definition of insanity?"
Vaas: "Run, Forrest, run!"
Jason: Across this island, Vaas and his pirates enslave the bodies and minds of the Rakyat. Our guns do not stop until Vaas falls to our feet! We are the warriors of the Rakyat, AND I WILL LEAD YOU TO GLORY!Easter Eggs
After unlocking the south island, Willis will say to Jason, "This Russia operation has blown wide open. I'm joining Task Force 141, flying out tonight." This is a reference to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which contains a Task Force 141 group, who are tasked to find a Russian terrorist.
In the Lost Expeditions edition, the mission called "Ignition to the deep" contains several references to the Assassin's Creed series. You can find Abstergo's logo and a document about the pieces of Eden and genetic memory. The fact that Jason says "that symbol looks familiar" suggests that it is not just a Easter egg but that both Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed could takes place in the same world.
There's a loot item named "Ripped Teddy Bear" which has the description: An old teddy bear, eye missing and a musty smell. Stuffing is visible between the stitches. A worn, ripped label names the bear "Bo B-".This is a reference to The Simpsons; Mr. Burns' childhood bear, Bo Bo, that was shown in the episode "Rosebud".
