Far Cry 4 – First Look

Game, Game Reviews, New Release

Well doesn’t FarCry look incredible!!

To be honest with all the hype that was going for FarCry i wasn’t sure they would be able to live up to the hype and it might be another Destiny incident but it look great so far.

With Ubisofts not so great track record right now, i thought FarCry would come out just as bad as Assassins Creed but i was wrong and this give me more hope for Tom Clancy’s release next year. It is almost like the took all their sweet time working on FarCry and forgot all about Assassins Creed and making it look at least half decent.

Gameplay

The gameplay is incredibly smooth and plays really well. I love that although there is so much going on in one place on screen, the game is still able to perform at its best with no glitches or lagging.

The cinematics in FarCry are also just as impressive. Very well put together and very engaging. It is made in a way that is actually vital to the story and hard to skip rather than just something to pass the time until the next mission.

They also take full advantage of the FPS shooting experience. For example just little details, like when Pagan Min touches ‘your’ shoulder and you actually react and move. Although it is just a small the detail, it really counts to making the whole experience real and worthwhile and i guess the incredible graphics  on the next also help make the experience even better.

The location for Far Cry is incredible and gives the gamer such a lovely experience when you are running through the snowy mountains or running through the rich green areas surrounded by exotic animals whilst the sun slightly glints over the village like buildings.
Characters

As i said, ‘Troy Baker would not disappoint’ and so far he is going beyond what i expected of him for FarCry.

Pagan Min

What i think is brilliant is that you actually wouldn’t know it was him if you didn’t have the knowledge of knowing he would be the villain previously.

(I mean imagine Pagan Min face with Joels voice….yeah…it wouldn’t work.)

Although i have merely looked at the first few missions of FarCry, i believe Ubisoft and Troy have done a great job of already setting the standard for a very sick villain.

When i say sick, i mean in the way of being incredibly pyschopathic and insanely messed up. A villain with a very complex and dynamic personality is what really gives you that realistic feel about the character and instantly gain an feeling for how badass this villain is going to be.

The first few moments of meeting any character in a game, especially the villain because it really set the mood and feel for the whole game. A good first impression is what sets the different between actually having motive and satisfaction of that final boss battle.

I am not quite sure how i feel about the main character yet but i like that he is not such as wimp as how the last one started out and just bait normal i guess. Once a again, paired with realistic dialogue and beautiful voice acting, this character comes across very realistic to other video game characters created this year.

I also love how they introduced you essentially to your self through the crazy selfie that you take with Pagan Min. It was a nice and modern touch to the game.

What is to come?

i feel the introduction to this game has been a brilliant start and i can’t wait to see what will happen next. The story introduced is engaging and leaves you with sooo many questions such as:

  • What is so special about his father?
  • What is going on in India? And how is the crazy guy in control
  • Why did they kill that cute little monkey?
  • And how Badass is the main character going to get this time?

I can’t wait to see what is to come from Far Cry and whether it will continue with this great performance and end just as well as it has started

Rating (so far)
