I had a blast playing Far Cry 3, so naturally I couldn’t wait to pick up the fourth installment. I’m pleased to say that it’s holding up to my expectations with all this game has to offer to gamers. Right off the bat, Far Cry 4 feels fast paced with an excellent story, and of course a crazy bad guy. Secondly, once you get a chance to explore the landscape you easily tell how large the map is, and I personally already feel myself becoming immersed in the world of Far Cry 4. There’s just so much to do, and explore! Not to mention all the awesome animals, vehicles, and weapons. On top of that I love how fast things blow up and catch on fire.
Weapon and Item Customization: I was very impressed with the amount of items, sidearms, primary weapons, and weapon attachments are in this game. There’s even maps available in the game to unlock some areas. Far Cry also allows you to craft new items, you make sure you skin the animals you kill, you’ll need the pelts.
Skills and Tactics: Fry Cry 4 has a vast amount of skill upgrades that will be very useful throughout the game, as well as tips and tactics that the game teaches you as you play.
Graphics: Overall the graphics are pretty good, and didn’t disappoint me at all, especially how detailed the mountains, and water looked.
Other Things I Liked: I found the radio to be very funny while I was driving around. Secondly, it’s pretty awesome being able to ride an elephant or using them to distract the enemy. I’m not sure what I like more, rising the elephants, or scaring them so they attack the enemies. Lastly, although waypoints were in the last game, they are very helpful in finding your way around in the new game. The map is huge, and without them I know I would get lost searching for my objective.
Bottom line: If there is one Ubisoft game you’re going to get this month then I highly recommend picking up Far Cry 4, but even more so if you’ve played the third game you will not be disappointed with the forth. I can’t say enough of how good this game is.
