One of the best game developers known for producing excellent video games is Ubisoft, and what helps them stand out is their exceptionally creativity. Ubisoft has just recently released Far Cry 4, which shows their mastery and skill when it comes to the development of video games.
Far Cry 4 – Story
The story behind Far Cry 4 is about regional battles that would see you contend with Pagan Min and the rebels for supremacy. You’ll play the role of Ajay Gale in this excellent game. Ajay Gale, who hails from Kyrat, mourns his mother after coming back to his native land. For him to accomplish his objectives, he must join allies important to his cause. This game has varied missions that serve to capture the interest of the average gamer and keep them interested.
Far Cry 4 takes your adventure and exploration to the next level with its exciting features and missions. One thing am sure about this game is that we will not have the luxurious Island we had in far cry 3, this time, it gets tougher because the Himalayan region is very much similar to the virtual world we have in far cry 4. Kyrat, our virtual world, is filled with guest, side missions and many animals, and they all combine perfectly to make the game as realistic as it can be. Animals play a critical role in this game because they can be used for battles. In fact, you can use the elephants to destroy your enemies and wreck structures in the game.
The battle scenes in this game have lived up to expectation, and it’s quite comparable with those featured in the previous titles. The innovation, creativity, battle scenes, and the new virtual world make it a gamer’s delight.
I have found the conquering towers, which is part of the game mechanics brought from the previous episodes, fascinating. Another interesting reason to play this game is the fact that you aren’t restricted to gameplay, instead the game allows you to explore it as you deem fit. Of course, there is joy and happiness in freedom.
There are many side challenges, such as kiting or driving buddies, as well as missions. You’ll need to be disciplined and focused in other to achieve the overall objectives of the game. Also, I like the fact that the decisions you make affect the overall story of the game. Just like the Far Cry 3, you could unravel two different game ends in far cry 4.
If you want to explore the land for materials collections such as herbs, or you want to bomb your way through your enemy fences, you’d be able to do that and much more in this game. The trailers portray Pagan Min as a dangerous villain, but when you play the game, you’ll discover that that Pagan is the toughest villain in the game. The Challenges Pagan brings keeps you on your toes and adds a level of excitement when playing the game.
Co-op and PVP
In addition to the single player mode and the great campaign, Far Cry 4 also comes with the challenging multiplayer mode. The PVP mode can be engaged, and it requires you to kill as many enemies as you can in other to win, and this PVP mode adds a level of dynamism to the game. Also, you can ratchet up things using the multiplayer mode. The multiplayer mode allows you team up with friends so as to share experiences and ideas that will help you crush enemy forces.
Sounds and Graphics
This area is another vital component in this game. When it comes analyzing the graphics of the Far Cry series, Far Cry 4 stands outs. The technology used in designing the graphics of this fantastic game is state-of-the-art, and this makes some natural features such as hair, snow and background, look realistic. From the visual standpoint, the Kyrat is breathtaking; the animations are fluid and the designs, exceptional to say the least. Although you may encounter some graphic bugs from time to time, the game’s graphics remains excellent.
The soundtrack in this game isn’t much different from what we enjoyed in Far Cry 3; however, the soundtrack is very much in line with the Himalayan theme. The voiceovers are excellent, especially those used for Pagan Min and other main characters in the game.
Far Cry 4 is the apex of the Far Cry game series. Shooting enthusiasts would love this game because the game still packs the firepower associated with the previous Far Cry series. If you like to explore games without restriction, especially at the Himalayas, then this game is ideal for you. The high points of this beautiful game can be summarized in three phrases – Interesting story line, good shooting, enough freedom.
