FC4 is nothing short of a masterpiece. It may have a predecessor that had much of what it has now in terms of gameplay, but regardless, the game is wonderful. It was not afraid to be daring and that courage has paid off.
At least Ubisoft got this one perfect
Must be sighs of relief at their offices :)
Haha yeh definately should be after Unity
I'd put it more in the category of ' very good ' personally. Really a lovely game though. Really fun and doesn't take itself too seriously
Me too. Shadow of Mordor is way ahead, IMO, for its awesome, creative and varied design, great gameplay, different challenges and the orcs' personalities mechanics, in an age where 90% of the games are extremely derivative, sometimes only changing one or two mechanics and adding a new setting/story, specially annual franchises.
Before Dragon Age III Inquisition ? no way
Agreed, 50 hours, still going strong, for me DA3 is not just one of the best games this year, but it's one of the best games in years! As for awards etc I expect Alien Isolation to win some for sound and lighting.
DA: Inquisition is in my books the game of the year...
Agree, should be Inquisition
Inquisition felt so Last-Gen after playing ACU & BF4.
Oh yeah especially with the same engine that BF4 .... in an almost open world setting ...
DAI is a 9/10 in my book, 52 hours in and still having fun, 3 dragons have been put down.
Far Cry 4 does have some bugs / glitches and had some co-op problems as well until like 5 days ago when a patch rolled out. I do not agree that this game is perfect, as the 10/10 score would suggest. However, it is the best game that has come from Ubisoft this year and definately a great game in its own right.
Shallow story, disposable characters, weak moral choices, dumb AI, insignificant animal presence, rinse 'n repeat gameplay, uncanny emptiness of locations when not activated, illogical barriers to stop progression and strange weapon balancing like limited attachments on guns when there are clearly 3 slots. The game of the month is the best it may deserve. Don't get caught up in the whole freedom run'n gun hype, when I've listed but a handful of these jarring problems that Ubisoft never addressed or back stepped from FarCry 3.
Well said sir, thanks for pointing these out.
I haven't played much, but what I did it's just Far Cry 3 in a different location.
Shadow of Mordor!!
I went a little spend-happy recently and bought this, GTA V, LPB3 and DA Inquisition. I have to admit, so far if I had to send one game back it would be this one. Still I'm not too far into it and plan to concentrate on it more when I've at least worn the novelty off the other games so I'm sure it will impress me more then. Not that it's even been bad so far but so far I've been amazed by the first person mode and atmosphere in the new GTA V, the platforming in LBP3's campaign (which is the best it's ever been and almost Rayman levels of brilliantly designed)' EVERYTHING in DA inquisition (easily my game of the year) whereas Far Cry 4 has just been decent, there's nothing I could pinpoint that's blown my mind yet.
my personal GOTY..good choice
As much as I loved it,it isn't even worth being a nominee for the title.It isn't much of an improvement over Far Cry 3 and doesn't add any risky ideas.Bayonetta 2 is GOTY for me
So does Dragon Age Inquisition.
