9. Far Cry 3
Like Far Cry 2 before it, Far Cry 3 is in the hands of Ubisoft and not that of Far Cry's progenitors, Crytek. Given how great Far Cry 2 was, it's certainly not a fact to bemoan.
Far Cry 3 runs on the powerful Dunia Engine which powered the second game, with more than a few bells and whistles added to it to bring it up to par with other modern releases. According to its developers at Ubisoft Montreal, Far Cry 3 will be at least ten times larger than Far Cry 2, confirming that much of the action will take place in a giant sandbox.
Players will once again be free to roam an open environment—as opposed to tight corridors—to deal with challenges as they please. The new game sees the addition of a new stealth mechanic, a leveling and skill system, and the ability to perform takedowns.
