It's good, but it's not like Far Cry 3. And it is pretty much "crazy off the hinge macho madness" the game, the movie, the experience.
Tether motorcycles to aircraft and watch them fly off into the sunset, latch onto propane containers and then use them as rockets, hang people from trees and beat them like a pinata and get extra points for it, drag people behind your car, and just generally cause mayhem.
