Far Cry 4
GOTY in my opinion
This was the best game Ubi launched all year (I'm looking at you The Crew & ACU). The story is good but every amazing game doesn't need to hang it's hat on the story mode. There are so many side quests & places to explore this game will keep you preoccupied for hours! Sometimes, you feel the world is way to big to do everything. If you enjoyed Far Cry 3, you will really enjoy this game. It's every bit of Far Cry 3 but with a lot of extras & a world of endless possibilities. The Fashion week missions are not only terrifying but also challenging & fun. You will respect the honey badger!! Because Honey Badger don't care! (Please see attached video.) The animal A.I. is great & so is the enemy A.I. Watch out for the Rakshasa! They can mark you to be attacked by animals & they are crazy ninja's with a bow & arrow. I'm never one to invest in season passes, but the season pass for this game is worth picking up. You get Yeti's & a lot of other extras. Multiplayer in the game is fun. Co-op is great but if you're not the host, you will not receive the progress. The game will keep you preoccupied even after you beat the story mode. Definite pick up!
Choose this over Unity
If I had to choose between Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed Unity, I would choose Far Cry 4. Basically the engine is the same as it was in Far Cry 3. Im glad they didnt change it because it would have been a HUGE disappointment if Ubisoft released 2 awful AAA titles. The gameplay is awesome, it truly means it when it says every second is an adventure, because even just walking through the jungle to get to the place your going is fun because your never know what your going to run into. The sounds in it are awesome too, fairly quickly you want to learn the different animal sounds so you can know if it's a predator or just a random deer. The story is somewhat like Far Cry 3, but what it lacks in story it makes up in gameplay, trust me. All in all it's a fun game so far. I havent run into any bugs or glitches. Im so glad Ubisoft didnt mess up this Title like it did with Assassin's Creed. Get this instead of Unity.
Astonishing single player, limited co-op
The best thing about this game is the graphics. Farcry 4 is without a doubt the most gorgeous game on the PS4 or any console. The Villian, Pagan, is an absolutely amazing character and keeps you hooked through the story's 15 hour ride. The Driving is honestly better than any game on the new gens and that is saying something. If you were turned off by the stealth in Farcry 3, its still here, but the game has been redesigned to allow you to play action based as well as stealth based, the way it should be. The fun of hunting animals and liberating outposts is very much alive and makes this game a must play to anyone fortunate enough to have a next gen console. That being said, the co-op is fun and great albeit with limited things to do and the multiplayer feels very tacked on. Different, but tacked on nonetheless. Play this game for the campaign, and try out the multiplayer, worst case scenario, trade it in and be satisfied with your investment.
Can't put it down
I loved Far Cry 3 so much, I played it twice. On the XBOX 360, but now I have the One and the PS4, I chose to play it on the PS4. So many choices right out of the gate. I like to build up all my pouches by hunting down animal skins, then go and take over the bell towers so i can see the maps. The sounds are amazing, you can hear carnivorous animals in the distance so you can get ready to drop a piece of bait so it gives you a chance to get your weapons ready to take em out. Flying in the one man chopper flying over the beautiful landscapes and seeing animals run through mountainsides is second to none. The honey badger is as hard to kill as the rhino though, darn honey badger. Killing people isn't real easy, not to hard either. Great story too. I put this game up there at a 9-9.5 with Infamous second son. I will play this more than once. Oh, and to complete, your probably talking 60 hours. not an 8 hour game.
Best Far Cry yet
This is the best Far Cry yet. It combines the weapons from Far Cry 2 with the graphics of Far Cry 3. Ive played all of the Far Cry titles. I was disappointed when they took the animal abilities away in Fry Cry 2 and thought I would never enjoy a Far Cry like I did the first one boy was I WRONG! This game is so much fun from riding a elephant through a outpost to landing a personal helicopter on a bell tower. Well Done Ubisoft you have never disappointed me.
Best Shooter of the Year Hands Down!
Anyone indecisive about getting this game, GET IT! If you love an amazing FPS with a great story, meaningful side quests, solid and fun gameplay, then this game is for you! Like Farcry 3, there's a lot of hunting and killing animals, so if that's not your thing, there's not a way to avoid it. However, my view is that if you're okay with brutally killing, stabbing, slashing, slicing, maiming, shooting, and blowing up human characters and not animals, well you might have your priorities wrong. I found myself hating Pagan (main antagonist) from the START. Within 2 minutes I'm emotionally invested into this game, and it only gets better. I won't go into the story to avoid spoilers, but it really is great. Those of you familiar with Farcry 3 know almost everything can kill you. And try they do. During one of the first missions I hear the sound of an Eagle, look up, and see it barreling down towards my face from the sky! Another time I round a corner in the brush at night, see some wolves, and turn to run another way into a small cave to complete a delivery mission. Sure enough, I turn around, and see 4 of these things darting around the corner and lunging at me! Those moments when you just have to lift up and spray are incredible. The attention to detail is stellar, the way these wolves run is so smooth and realistic. The graphics are another masterful achievement, I'm convinced the opening scene was as much to introduce you into the gameplay as to just show off the graphics. Snow flakes falling onto the ground, jaded and layered mountain sides, strands of rope sticking out, its all done well. I don't have a single complaint about this game. Only thing "wrong" I've encountered was that a double headshot flung a guy about 10 feet up in the air like he got hit with a hulk uppercut, but the humor made up for it. Overall, excellent game. You DON'T want to pass up on this one.
Just like FC3, Still Fun and Awesome
I love this game. Any game that has Troy Baker in it is just pretty freaking fantastic! Awesome universe and a descent story with fun gameplay especially with a friend. And I love the elephants! Pretty FUN
Another Installment to the Far Cry Series.
Far Cry 4 is a game I have been waiting for and am ecstatic about its debut at E3. I really enjoyed Far Cry 3 and after I finished the game and scoured the land to kind everything I could I was left wanting more. The last game had extremely smooth combat and a phenomenal story that took you all across the massive open-world you were placed in. Now you are placed in Himalayan mountains where the imaginary region of Kyrat exists. It is a painstakingly beautiful setting and you know it will be full of dangers that you will welcome in a flurry of bullets and explosions. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game and see how much it can outmatch its predecessor. If you agree give a thumbs up. Add me on PSN as well ZeGamerBoy.
One Word OUTSTANDING
One of the best games I have ever played, great story a tad bit repetative but it's all around fun a must have game
Words cannot describe
Far Cry 4 is one of the best games I've ever played in recent years. A vast open world to explore with great animal A.I , great shooting and quite the good storyline. The world of Kyrat is absolutely amazing! Wind blowing through the trees, animals just hanging out and the lighting is stunning. Co-op is great just wished they'd let you play through the story co-op
