Since then I've begun to find my Far Cry 4 feetIn my first review I only gave this a 4 because I was having difficulty getting into the game. Since then I've begun to find my Far Cry 4 feet and am enjoying it more and more ESPECIALLy that the animals make so much difference and are true to life. Snakes bite. Wolves attack in packs, Tigers and leopards maul and Eagles attack from above. But tonight I had an awesome experience. Two elephants were bathing in the water. I decided to ride one and walk around.mthrn I noticed an enemy outpost and for fun attacked it. WOW. all hell let loose. They called in reinforcements and killed the elephant I was riding THEN the OTHER ELEPHANT that was also bathing got ugly and rage killed every enemy in the base. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! So, so impressive taking an outpost on with an angry elephant that it's mate was killed. Does this get any better? No. Never. For that one experience I'm raising this to a 10. What was so amazing was that I attacked the base with only one elephant and never called the other one in but left it downstream bathing. However when it's mate got kaiLled somehow it knew from the cry it let out and in an instant it was raging mad and just killed every enemy. It knew to kill the ones that killed it's mate as it didn't touch my guys when they moved in. I also hand grenades a bear and killed and killed some leopards but wasn't easy. Loving it more as I play more. Glad I bought it. Love the helicopter. Snipered guards at a tower using a silencer and took like taking candy from a baby. Just awesome. First experience was not good but as I learned the ropes I found it awesome.… Expand

With all the tools andThis finally represents the rebalancing of the Call of Duty franchise. The playing field is now much more level. With all the tools and gadgets a hell of a lot more variety and randomness as well as unpredictability has been introduced into the game making it competitive for all.
That's what veterans who've dominated the game don't like. They don't like someone else coming along and whipping their butt because they are more creative. The rules should always make a competitive game not a club of elites who firever dominate. Take snipers. They've dominated for so long. What do they do that's skillful? They just camp and wait with a scope. Where's the skill in that? And if he misses he should be penalised and the advantage go to the opponent. Now the opponent can hunt him down before he gets away so that's more than fair.
Seeing through walls. This is advanced warfare. We have heat seeking missiles as well as technology which can detect a heat signature so why not use it? This game was very well thought out. Yes it's linear but so are all COD games. It's not Far Cry.
Another thing is what rig you play it on. This game has awesome graphics, sound and effects but what you get depends on how good your PC is. On my PC and GPU and with surround headphones I get an experience and immersion that makes me feel I'm right there myself. But others with weaker hardware may get a very ordinary experience.
I'm just loving this and so far it's the best COD I've played. This is definitely a change for the better. New tools, new problems and a whole new game. For the campers and snipers and veterans of previous versions if you're good enough you'll make your mark here to but now you're made to earn it knowing one missed snipe will have a mob of eco suited enemies on your doorstep. You're no longer a protected species and can be hunted and got to as fast as you can flee so the onus on you now is not to miss. Now your skill is really being tested. Anyone can camp and snipe endlessly where nobody can get to them but now you can be gotten to in a flash and thus we hear your moaning and groaning. If you're really good now you're being asked to prove it.… Expand

On the one hand 0-7 reviews scream 'it's the same as all the past cod games', condemn it, then go on to sayWhat a bunch of whining whingers. On the one hand 0-7 reviews scream 'it's the same as all the past cod games', condemn it, then go on to say how they loved BO2, MW2. So if this is just like them then why hate it his?? What gooses contradicting themselves with their own words! They're flaming that's all. If it's the 'same rehash' then you can bet it's much more than good. Let's look at those who stand to hate the new suit. I'll give you one guess -snipers. Snipers are a blight on the game that needed to be counterbalanced. Now cleverly, we have a way of defending against the unseen if not then making it more difficult for them. At least we can now make life as difficult for them as possible and we love it but they hate it because that's all they could do, sit and wait. They are probably hopeless at real combat so snipe.
The launch issues such as lag will be sorted out. But it is in essence COD and if you wanted something so different from COD that it's unrecognisable then I suggest you play Destiny which is AWESOME!! I don't believe even 1/10th of negative reviews are genuine because if you guys value your cash so much why did you jump in and buy and not wait and see some videos first?? So do we trust the reviews of those with proven bad judgement who jumped in and bought the game without checking it out first? People who are condemning something they themselves bought are in reality condemning their poor judgement because before you spend $60 or more $$$ on a game you should check it out thoroughly.
I'm giving the game a 9/10 because no game is perfect, the extra balancing against snipers (the game's blight) the improved graphics and new maps and single player. Unlike those who bought blindly then come crying crocodile tears here I checked it out and found it worthy of the COD Franchise. My $$$ is not wasted nor am I going to come here and whine and moan because I did my homework and don't buy games I don't know I will like. Destiny I loved and this too.… Expand
Average User Score: 2.3Apr 26, 2013Absolutely ludicrous and ridiculous these negative scores and judgements. It's a Star Trek themed game. Yes and a shooter too because they didAbsolutely ludicrous and ridiculous these negative scores and judgements. It's a Star Trek themed game. Yes and a shooter too because they did that in Star Trek. Beaming up and down, phasers, scanning etc all the things that are unique to Star Trek. Voice acting is excellent and graphics very good like in Mass Effect 3. I love the sound effects and special effects of the weapons. The ladies perfect.
I've found it difficult to put down and played a few hours. On my Asus Vulcan headphones with a top end pc and video card this game is no different in quality to Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3 or Tombraider all which I have played for days. It's Star Trek. I love Star Trek so I love this game more but because they've done a lot of things RIGHT!! I'm playing on Windows 8 no problems or bugs.
The atmosphere and story are great. I'm really enjoying it and I can't play more because its 2 am now and I have to sleep. That's how good it is. This is NOT and never will be Call of Duty or Far Cry as it is based on an entirely different theme.
I laugh when I see zeros. My guess is that those who are writing these negative reviews are a tiny percentage who had problems with co-op which I never had. I bet a large number of players, the majority are playing and love this but just never write reviews. I'm one of them and I love this game and I love quality games and wouldn't go near this if it wasn't quality. My favourite game is the new Tomb Raider followed by Far Cry 3 so I'm not stupid. I know a good quality game because I play them all the time and this is a great game. Assassins Creed 3 another great game. Skyrim another great game. I know my games and this is a very good game NOT the rubbish people are trying to portray it as. I'm an avid gamer and I'm really enjoying this. Reminds me of one of my favourited Mass Effect 3.
And I bet there are many, many more people that never come here that love this and would give it a 9 or 10.… Expand

Then I bought far Cry 3 and thought it wouldn't be much good but inI started the week playing Black Ops 2 and taking a break now and again. Then I bought far Cry 3 and thought it wouldn't be much good but in all honesty I haven't played Black Ops 2 since and my biggest, hugest problem with Far Cry 3 is putting it down!! I've never had a game so immersive e pull me in even though I resisted at the beginning and thought it was not much good but after the initial initiation I have played it all day everyday and can't stop. The last game that had me so immersed but not as much was Far Cry 2 but this is enormous fun.
I had one mission where I was attempting to catch a base with two heavies which are very difficult to bring down. I scouted the area took some photos to keep my enemies in target on my radar and outg of the blue a tiger attacked the base and killed the two heavies. I finished off the other one AFTER he had so kindly eliminated the tiger for me and claimed the base thanks all to the tiger.
Far Cry 3 is addictive, immersive, pure fun and it will tie you to your chair and is game of the year as far as I'm concerned as well as being worth $100 entertainment value. To get such quality in a game is rare and whether you like stealth or all guns blazing you'll love Far Cry 3.
I' ve also had times when I was sneaking up on a camp and a wild animal was sneaking up on me and gorged me to death. Animals stalk you too and you need to hunt them to increase the size of your containers. It's such a real jungle where you can't just run through it without watching your back for a tiger or leapard or dog that will attack you.… Expand

Many reasons. I loved the setting in Iran. Rolling into the rugged Iranian mountains and the city of tehran. With so much news around Iran I believe BF3 is in the right place at the right time as far as story goes and nukes etc. Graphics - brilliant on DX 11. Gameplay again I loved it. There was a whole lot of variety and some weapons like night weapons were really cool. I always wanted to know what Tehran looked like up close - now I know. It was a surreal experience. MP is very good also. I've got MW3 today but so far haven't liked it after playing BF 3 it feels so boring. If you can't make up your mind I'd highly recommend BF 3.… Expand
