Far Cry 3 went heavy on the whip past 2012’s final hurdle and sprinted to a last minute victory in the UK charts. Ubisoft’s open world shooter was Britain’s Christmas number one, FIFA 13 placed second and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 dropped to third. Get the full chart below.

VG247 is very fond of Far Cry 3 indeed. Not a massive fan of shooters, it converted Brenna with its island-hopping gunnery, and having been worn down by Far Cry 2’s jamming guns and malaria, I also found it to be a superb experience. Check out our impression pieces beyond the links.
