Good game, but Far Cry 3 look-alikeTHE666BEAST | Aug. 31, 2015 | See all THE666BEAST's reviews »
Far Cry 4 is certainly a great game! The gameplay is very similar to Far Cry 3. What I like about the Far Cry serie (especially this one) is the dialogues with the other characters, since they are simply hilarious! The storyline is good, but it could be better. The gameplay dynamics are great and the Open World is absolutely gorgeous. And for the first time, I really liked the Far Cry game multiplayer. This is a must buy!
A respectable sequelheerox328 | Aug. 25, 2015 | See all heerox328's reviews »
Overall, Far Cry 3 had a better villain, plot, and story. However, in terms of actual game play, Far Cry 4 refines and improves the experience in a multitude of ways. Finally we have a true cooperative experience. The visuals are absolutely stunning and breathtaking. If you like the idea of an open world sandbox shooter in which you really develop how you play the game as time goes by, this is for you. Character progression. Solid shooter controls. Addictive assassination moves. A variety of ways of engaging outposts and plenty of weapons to keep the fun unique and interesting. If you are a fan of Far Cry, this game is worth picking up.
Far Cry is Amazing!Demadizz | July 25, 2015 | See all Demadizz's reviews »
Far Cry 4 is an unbelievable game, It takes what Far Cry 3 did great and expanded on it. The environment is gorgeous, whether you are exploring Kyrat or taking missions into the Himalayas. The game mechanics and controls flew well together and I didn't notice any issues what so ever. Getting to ride around on elephants and storming outposts with them or wing suiting across the land never gets old. The gameplay is perfect, stealth or loud either way was a blast and a different challenge. All the side activities were all unique and actually worth completing. The dialogue from the side missions is humorous and very enjoyable. They all added something to the story and gameplay. The voice acting is top notch, Troy Baker killed it as Pagan Min, all the way to the end I loved his character. They sure know how to make a memorable and interesting antagonist. This game has a ton of choices in which you chose who would lead the rebellion group and how to go about ending peoples lives. All in all Far Cry 4 was a very enjoyable experience and I look forward to future installments; because they created an amazing series. Two masterpieces in a row, good job Ubisoft! I recommend this 100% a solid 9+, with countless hours in single player as well as Co-Op.
Great to play...but nothing tops Vaaszzbullan | May 30, 2015 | See all zzbullan's reviews »
The game was a complete joy to me. As a fan of Far Cry (Caveat: I have only been a fan since Far Cry 3) I enjoyed the feel of this game. It took me back to the enjoyment I really get from this game series. It isn't the story mode, but the exploration & activities you can complete whilst exploring. I have always loved most Hunting/Crafting and Outposts; it gave the game greater depth of importance to me & was just incredibly fun. Fans of the series will be happy to see that these activities have returned and unlike last game. where the 2nd island had a boring island design; this game overs a variety of scenery and includes some bases that allow for 'Max-Stealth', whilst others will punish you if you try to sneak around and snipe the guards; and the best part is that the type of approach you ought to take is apparent prior to your assault (and not a product of bad design). So all in all the game is great to play, but the story is not as a good as Far Cry 3. Pagan is a great villian and much better then the one from Far Cry 3 (the main bad guy who was so forgettable that i can't even remember his name). However Pagan can not hold a candle to the insanity that is Vaas, his role as the crazed, angry antagonist from Far Cry 3, was what really made that game for me. He was able to emerse you in the games world and made you hungry to find out more about his character (let's face it, no one cared about Jason or his friends; it was Vaas we all cared about). Due to Vaas being some memorable and the other guy being so forgettable, i break up Far Cry 3 into 2 parts and say that Far Cry 4 has a better story & characters then Far Cry 3 Part 2, but not as good as Far Cry 3 part 1. TLDR - Whilst this game is great to play and fans will enjoy it; it's story is not as good as Far Cry 3 part 1 (when Vaas was the big bad), but it is better then Far Cry 3 part 2. Overall get this game it is great!
Something from Ubisoft Worth Getting!ugfish | March 8, 2015 | See all ugfish's reviews »
This is the first game in the Far Cry franchise that I decided to purchase. After reading the raving reviews about the previous game my only thoughts were that the new one had to be better. I was not at all disappointed with my first couple hours spent in the game. It gets you settled in to who your character is and who the "bad guy" is going to be throughout your adventures in Kyrat. The story itself is great and gives you the decisions to go down two different major paths. Both of these affect the missions you get and general reactions of the characters throughout the story. As a first timer in the franchise I went down the good guy path to begin with and then slowly started drifting towards the more action packs, drug running, shoot 'em up path as I reaching the end of the main story line. Far Cry gives you the option to play the game how you want it and lets you take many different approaches to handling missions. The missions can get a little repetitive if you really want to do every little side mission, but as far as the main story line goes it throws in many twists and variations that keep the game interesting. Welcome yourself to the armory! This game has loads of different guns that will keep any battle guru satisfied. If you want to go silent use a bow or throwing knives and take people out with out anyone ever knowing. Maybe you're the next Rambo; strap an LMG and an RPG over your shoulder and role right in guns blazing. I truly loved the variety of weapons in the games and the fact that it didn't matter what I wanted to use it all worked in its own way. The leveling system in the game is pretty straight forward. As you complete missions and tasks for people you gain experience and can then level up the skill tree with two different sides, the Tiger and the Elephant. One being more aggressive while the other more defensive. The skills help you as you progress through the game and also serve to spice up some of the combat and action events throughout the story. Karma is another thing in the game and basically gets you discounts as you gain more levels. In order to level this skill just try to help people out when needed and don't shoot every civilian you see just because they looked at you wrong (I did this once and regretted it due to loss of karma, but he deserved it). As far as running of the game goes this is where I had a few complaints with the game. It probably ran smoothly 95% of the time I was playing, but on occasion it would crash during loading screens which was a real pain because you had the boot the game back up which took a minute or so each time to get back up and going. Other then the occasional loading screen crash the game ran flawlessly and looked beautiful. All the animals and scenery was nicely rendered and the game just looked good when traveling through the world. I would recommend this game to any one wanting to have a good time shooting people up, grappling through the mountains, mounting an elephant, and conquering the oh so flamboyant Pagan Min. This is an open world FPS that I feel almost anyone can enjoy and you will be able to get a good amount of playing time out of it. Don't forget there is multi-player and custom player made maps as well that add a different fun factor to the game if you make it through the whole world of Kyrat and are itching for some more.
