This is a game I bought a few years back now (it was released in 2014), and recently I completed it in full for the third time. I realised though that I had not reviewed it.
A few weeks ago I actually installed Far Cry 3 again, but minutes into the game I got tired as it seemed dated. So I installed FC4 and instantly was having fun.
It is quite a large game with plenty of missions to get through, lots of baddies to shoot, and side missions to complete. It is also great to look at, and has a pretty good story. It is also a funny game with plenty of silly humour and some nutty characters such as Yogi and Reggie – a couple of British dudes who like to experiment with drugs.
My weapon of choice in most FPS games such as this is a sniper rifle, and this game has an excellent one. I always bling it out with a silencer, extended cartridge, and camo colours. It is very satisfying to liberate an outpost by sniping all of the baddies from a high vantage point from a distance, watching them run around trying to find you. Throwing molotovs at them is fun too.
I can’t think of any negatives really. Maybe some of the side missions are a tad tedious and pointless, but overall this is a brillo game, probably my all-time favourite FPS game.
Far Cry 5 turned up on Origin for a discounted price recently (it was too pricey for me up to then), so I bought it. So far it is pretty good, but while the graphics are very nice, the location and mood of the game is not as good as FC4. Having said that it is still a blast to play, and the sniper rifle I just pimped out is fun to use. But, more on that after I finish the game.
