lets all just hope that the story is better than the last one.
Yeahhhh... Man, Far Cry 3 had so much going for it, and 80%+ of the time the shit I was having a blast playing it. But the characters and contexts for the missions were draining, so much that I'd be excited to do the next story mission but dread the exposition and general plot development... There was some alright stuff, but it was generally handled pretty poorly. The twists that result in major gameplay enhancements are awesome in action, but the plot justifications are so clumsy and stilted.
If the game's plot had ended halfway into the game at the point where you killed Vaas and then left it at you just being a psychotic hallucinating crazy person, the story would have been perfectly serviceable.
