This game is great but i'm stopping...
I'm not the kind of guy that play games for the sake of Trophies. i see very little value in trophies. also i don't play the multiplayer mode.
Somehow i enjoy the original Far Cry more than 2 & 3. It's more similar to Crysis 1.
I really enjoyed the first Far Cry too. For the time, it was a fantastic looking game and played really well. Finally, a game you could take cover in the jungle and actually lose pursuers. It was a pleasure to play.
That is, until you get to the part with genetically altered gorillas/monkeys. That part just seems so stupid to me. The game, up to that point, was a fairly realistic military shooter (compared to something like Quake 2). But then having to take on mutant monkeys that could do super leaps and kill you with one hit? What the f*** was that? I played on for a few more levels then just lost all interest in the game. What a 180 degree turn it took, in my opinion. lol
If you don't enjoy the side quests simple solution to that is not to do them. As you get further into the game different enemy types come out (armored goons, sniper goons, armored flamethrower goons) and they all take a different strategy. You get more weapons, unlock new abilities (like the flight suit / parachute).
Seriously I don't get people who get overwhelmed with side quests and get turned off a game, ideally yes they would offer more variety but in the case that they don't and you don't enjoy what they do offer then ignore them.
