When it comes to First Person Shooters, you typically expect a lot of competitive online multiplayer where you run around, alone or with a team, trying to blast your opponent into oblivion. That’s why Far Cry 4 is so different. Sure, the competitive multiplayer component is present, but the single player campaign is so well done, so expansive, and tells such a great story that players who don’t pour the required time in to see it to completion are truly doing themselves a disservice.
Naysayers may cling to the idea that “Far Cry 4 is just Far Cry 3 with a new coat of paint.” Well, yes and no. The gameplay has remained largely the same. The map is enormous, there are hundreds of collectibles, and in addition to the main story, there are dozens of side missions to complete that can have an effect on your overall game. That’s every Far Cry.
