Scott Russell writes: "It isn't very often that realistic animals provide a major source of antagonism in gaming; most only offer cartoonish variants on real life creatures. Far Cry 4 instead places them in a position of power, in every one of Kyrat's ecosystems. From the depths of murky rivers, to the highest mountain peaks (how do the tapirs get up there?!), the world is full of dangerous, wonderful and downright ridiculous displays of beasts within their native environment. They are as threatening as they are astounding, and each one provides a plethora of entertainment throughout."
