The Completionist Edit
Jirard reviewed Far Cry 3 for the forty-eighth episode of The Completionist, as well as the second episode of Here Comes a New Challenger! To date, it is the final episode of Here Comes a New Challenger.
Jirard and Greg don't know what to expect of the game, since it doesn't have much to do with the first two games. However, after playing, he hails the story as the best in the series, while Greg describes the graphics as impressive but choppy. He also compliments the controls and voice acting, and the world as immersive, thanks in part to the lack of load screens. Jirard gives some props to the method in which Jason heals himself, as well as the upgrade system. Greg i also fond of the side quests and the vehicle systems, despite the occasional challenge in driving them.
