I had been expecting a lot as Far Cry 3 was so much fun, and while Ubisoft haven't really changed the formula but they didn't really need to. The graphics are stunning, the game play is addictive and the story and characters are well thought out and grip you from the off! There are multitudes of wild animal to hunt, vehicles to drive/ fly (the buzzer is amazing), tasks to complete, missions to carry out and so many collectibles that any completist will be tearing their hair out! If you liked Far Cry 3 then you'll love this and if you didn't then you're loco!! So good! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I bought fc4 & Assassins Creed Rogue on their release date @€65 each.
    Fc4 was a let down only, and only because of the happy clappy
    aspect to it. I don't care about the spiritual side of it. It's a SHOOTER
    game!!! I got gamer rage with the Shangri La mission where you have to fly round.
    Having had that rant, it has spectacular scenery and where else can you ride an elephant? I loved the copters, they made some of the towers easy to climb and jeez, those honey badgers are pure nasty!
    Overall, I'll play it again.

    What starts out as an almost painfully familiar derivation of its predecessor, slowly descends into an inspired piece with enough mechanicalWhat starts out as an almost painfully familiar derivation of its predecessor, slowly descends into an inspired piece with enough mechanical flair to separate itself from the common FPS rabble. A final act twist also helps elevate "Far Cry 4" past its initial narrative shortcomings, adding a masterstroke development to many of the game's characters, and giving the player a lot to think about.

    I played this game for hours and hours. I barely got halfway through and then I quit. This game while not the worst I've played is aI played this game for hours and hours. I barely got halfway through and then I quit. This game while not the worst I've played is a frustrating experience. I played and finished Far Cry 3, but this sequel was lacking, despite some minor improvements in gameplay.

    THE POSITIVE:

    1. The world is beautiful. Nice to look at when you're on the ground.

    2. You get to see boobs.

    3. The battle arena is a nice addition.

    4. There were some improvements in the mapping and menus. Although not sure if positive, since they still require improvement.

    5. There are less cliffs and drops that you can fall off of. It still happens, but it's usually fair. Usually.

    6. The rope system is kind of fun.

    7. I liked the radio DJ. He's amusing.

    8. The elephant was fun.

    THE NEGATIVE:

    1. It's buggy as hell. There was a point where I couldn't even seen anything. The screen started splitting up, and then it became all pink, and white, and I couldn't fix it. This happened with an update...!

    2. There are items locked behind a wall. You can't get ithem until you have enough uPlay points. I paid for the game (new)! Give me everything! I don't want to register with your club or whatever the hell it is.

    3. It takes way too long to progress through the story, which to be frank wasn't all that interesting in the first place. You have all these frivolous missions getting in your way, and they are very boring.

    4. The stealth missions, where you have to go undetected are a huge pain in the rear. You have to do them over, and over again, because someone got a glimpse of you. It doesn't matter if you kill them before they say anything. The bad guys are somehow telepathically connected to each other.

    5. The mapping system still sucks. Yeah, I want a map, but I don't want to have to visually hunt for my missions, and then select them, squinting to see if it's what I need to do to continue on through the story. There ought to be an ordered side bar where you select what to do, then it marks it down on the world.

    6. There are missions where you have to hijack and drive a truck, but they seemingly come at random, and then it's way too hard to hijack the truck.

    7. To upgrade your pouches, and rucksacks, you have to hunt animals. Okay. But some of the animals are really hard to find. I get that they want to make it more challenging, but this is just a hindrance in having fun. You have to pull your hair out to find rare animals, or kill animals that are magically resistant to bullets, like the honey badger, and rhino. Or you can only use certain weapons.

    8. When you navigate the menus you cannot just use the d-pad. A minor criticism, however.

    9. To get new items, or access upgrades there's this pain in the ass layered system. There should be only one layer! Why are there two layers? To get new guns you have to do specific missions, and then get money. To upgrade your skills, you have to do specific missions (some of which are way too difficult) to unlock skill sets, and then you must gain skill points to purchase them. This was a huge pain in the arse for me.

    10. They have these little helicopters in the game, but they can barely fly. If you push too fast they start crapping out. And when you look down at the world it is intensely foggy, and the trees are flat.

    11. Even on easy this game is still difficult.

    12. The bell towers! How I hate them! I didn't get this game to do puzzles, and die from falling. If there are to be bell tower, then you should just shoot off a few bad guys, and then climb up. That's it. None of this Spiderman business.

    13. The geography of the land is a pain. It's confusing. Mountains, mountains everywhere, getting in your way, and making it confusing to navigate. I should be able to get over, and around the mountains without great trouble. But that was not the case. The compass did not help me to avoid these piles of dirt and rock.

    14. The character does everything so casually, like he's in no rush. It feels like it takes two hours to reload a weapon.

    15. They have this system where you can hire guns for help, but guess what? They don't help you out when you want them to. It's very restricted. What's the point of this feature? 16. The controls left somehing to be desired. I hate how I had to press my thumbstick to assassinate people quietly. Why not let me use the trigger or some other more responsive button? Didn't seem like I could change my controls. 17. How come games don't have options to make the text larger? 18. When driving vehicles, because of the mountainous landscape, there should be a 3rd person perspective option so you can see from the outside. There are too many times where you can't see, and you drop off, and die. 19. When shooting in vehicles there should be bullet time. Hard to do two things at once, without some help. Anyway, I hope Ubisoft employees don't get angry at this review. I just want the Far Cry series to continue, and improve. Despite my annoyances.
