Well it's rather short & from what I've played of it, nope so far. There's still pockets of enemies roaming around just not as much as the red zone areas & dragons all over the place to keep it interesting as well as the hunting/collectible/hostage stuff.
@snail: From the size of the island & most reviews I've seen have put the story as well as some exploration around 6-8 hours so figuring closer to 12 hours with trying to do everything. This from what I've played is a bit more direct so compared to Far Cry 3, I'd call this short but excessively worth it.
When they patched in the ability to reset outposts in Far Cry 3, it brought me back to that game in a big way. After putting in 25 hours the first time around, I put in another 10-15 once I was able to reset all of the outposts, then run around and retake them, which was by far the most fun part of FC3 for me.
@xeno128: That is very sad to hear. I have collected everything and finished the garrison/side missions. Once I finish the story I won't have anything to do. Maybe I should pick up FarCry 3 again...........
