Far Cry 4 is a stunning iteration in the series that manages to bring forth great gameplay, superb visuals, and a pretty good story with a fabulous villain. While the competitive multiplayer may not feel all that great and there are some lackluster story missions, overall you'll have a great time with the first-person shooter.
Graphically appealing, Far Cry 4 reincarnates the gameplay of its marine old-gen form into the mystical and evocative Himalayan setting. The transmigration of Far Cry's soul into a new (re)generation body is successfully complete: the Nirvana of open world FPS is a step nearer.
There's almost everything you liked (or dislike) from its predecessor, and that could be a selling point for some, or a drawback for others. In the end, it's a very well crafted more of the same, where the change in the setting delivers some interesting landscapes and cultural aspects in the narrative.
Far Cry 4 is a logical successor to the third. Don't expect any ground-breaking, overwhelming visuals or a completely different story, but a shooter that does almost everything better than the competition.
Even if it had made serious strides over Far Cry 3, even if the gameplay held true to the series's core, even if its story weren't junk, even if it had been put together perfectly, I would still find Far Cry 4 annoying as hell. It's not just that Ubisoft can't execute; it seems like they can't design anymore. To compensate, they've just slapped whatever crap they can onto an open world in the desperate hope that large portions will make up for the flavorlessness of the meal. Instead, I got sick of chewing, and longed for the days when Far Cry just shut up and let me shoot some guns.
Унылейшная игра , в 3 части еще интересно было и мир исследовать, и сюжет проходить. Тут же - мега однообразный, перегруженный мир. От кол-ва гринда глаз дёргается. Зачистил 1/3 мира и удалил. Даже стрелять не интересно стало. Игра - копирка 3 части .
**** a let down.
Game lands up into copy of previous title syndrome. I am maybe too harsh but for me personally the plot was almost not existing. I tried to be interested in it but simply failed as it from start to the end was only a device to pushing protagonist further. Many collectables that just didnt felt worth it. The world felt empty and kind of a... fake? I mean there was nothing that felt natural here for real and protagonist didnt had a chance to really interact with anything.
You cans imply end the game with the basic setup of guns, as i went into halfway without changing, and after it didnt felt a difference at all. The Shangri-La missions maybe end weak, but are at least kind a original. Me myself didnt enjoy them, but i can see others finding those a solid element of the title.
As FC3 the taking of posts and towers is satysfying... but it felt so easy that i halfway through didnt enjoy it anymore. But once again i can see someone enjoying it..
To sum it up. I felt this game unispiring at all and aiming for easy money. Im giving it a 4/10.
