The moment I gotThe past few UBISOFT games have had a lot of problems , that's right AC UNITY , I'm talking bout you . Far Cry 4 delivered . The moment I got on I was thrown into a wild adventure , exploring kyrat was very fun . Gunplay is great . The story , well the game didn't have much of a story besides the whole , pagan min hates golden path lets kill him . I've never much cared about story if a game has fun gameplay so I quickly passed that . Overall the game was pretty much FC 3 .5 , but in my eyes that's a good thing because much of what FC 3 did right , is still here . Expand

    All these negative reviews are a mystery to me. I found Far Cry 4 to be a big step up from its predecessor.
    It uses all the good mechanics from Far Cry 3 and adds in more weapons, side quests, odd jobs and much more. The setting of Kyrat, is the best Far Cry landscape to me, locations are interesting, and getting around is a lot more fun as you can use a grapple to scale walls and mountains, different types of vehicles are available including the Buzzer (a basic gyrocopter). The main villain, Pagan Min, is awesome, calm and collective with ruthless ideals that he is not afraid to carry out. Not quite Vaas, but definitely my preferred antagonist. This is basically Far Cry 3 but everything is done better.
    Overall a great game with a very interesting storyline that some may find better or worse than Far Cry 3.
    Didn't experience any frame rate issues although the odd lag pops in rarely but understandable due to the immense scale of the map.

    Gameplay: 9/10, could have been more side missions (plenty of activities but too repetitive).
    Graphics: 8/10, graphics are on par if not a little better than Far Cry 3, very good for current gen.
    Storyline: 8.5/10, great storyline that most will love, but some will shunt when comparing to Far Cry 3.
    For PS3 this is an amazing game that everyone must give a go at some point regardless if you've played any others.

    Now I had a much more bigger and more impressive review of Far Cry 4 but I've been having a lot of internet problems so I lost the wholeNow I had a much more bigger and more impressive review of Far Cry 4 but I've been having a lot of internet problems so I lost the whole review and I am so annoyed by that and I'm really sorry for the inconvenience but I will say that Far Cry 4 is definitely worth buying but if you still want a proper explanation, watch the IGN review Far Cry 4, it doesn't share all of my exact points of the game but most of my points are on the review.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I just finished playing Farcry 4 and I can't understand why it reviewed so high. I gave it 4/10 because: the environment was beautiful and player friendly, minimizing falls and no lag. Indeed Bethseda can learn a great deal from that. Also, the Buzzers were cool getting me to far off places in little time, but i hated that they would disappear when I went exploring nearby. There were too many unnecessary animal attacks and karma event skirmishes. The Tiger perks were awful and the vehicles handled poorly. Why do I ahve to liberate so many bell towers and outposts to get good weapons. The treasure chests and inflated sale price of items broke immersion and made the game feel arcade like.I wanted to see fully customizable weapons, a better civil war storyline with more emphasis on storytelling between Badra, Ajay, Sabal and Amita. I hated the ending where some idiot developer tried to seem cleaver and do a 'mind **** plot twist with Mohan Gale, Ishwari Gale and Pagan Min. I find it impossible to believe that Ishwari the co-founder of the Golden Path and former Tarun Matara would betray her ideals and fall in love with a bloodthirsty, drug dealer like Pagan Min and have a love child. What's the message there Ubisoft? Evil prevails against good , or drug dealers are cool, or how about the one I got. Eject the disc and forget about the game and don't EVER buy another Farcry game. Farcry has always been **** with story telling, they could learn a lot from Fallout: New Vegas. How about handcrafted dungeons like Skyrim, or Skyrim's excellent HUD for open world exploration. How about a civil war storyline where you can side with Amita or Sabal or Badra or do things to further Ajay's interests. How about a much better explanation for the Mohan Gale/Ishwari Gale/Pagan Min situation. How about an altitude perk for the buzzers and rocket mods. How about a better reward for defeating the Rakshasa in Shangri La than a few XP points and an item storage system. I wanted a path where Ajay would become King of Kyrat and how about some payback for that **** Willis. Come on Ubisoft we the gamer who bought your product feel cheated by your half assed RPG and demand an update to fix it. Expand
