Zack at Horse Stealth Gaming liked Far Cry 4 so much he decided to write about it on the internet. Between crazy action and delightfully insane characters, what is not to like?
That's because we gave it credit when it was Far Cry 3.
lol pretty much this. I loved FC3 and it did everything so well. Then came along FC4, which does everything pretty much just as well. It brought along everything I love in FC3 and kept it. So anything I really loved in FC4 was in FC3.
It didnt have same impact as 3 did world feels empty sure theres villages but they dont feel very great or memorable
Damn Far Cry 3. What memories...
Far Cry 3 was still the best. Hawks...freakin hawks...
Yeah the villages need sidequests like fallout or witcher but I'm not sure ubisoft is willing to go full rpg in that manner
For me Far Cry 3 never grabbed me like 4. Don't get me wrong, 3 is great, but I feel like the discussion when 4 came out was, "well this is too much like 3" and automatically people stopped caring. I think it was unfairly ignored to an extent for this reason, when most sequels tend to be popular because they are similar to their predecessors.
The game was well received, it wasn't ignored because it was too much of the same. It just wasn't new, and we played (and loved) the game as a FC3 sequel. Nothing more, nothing less. FC4 didn't do the FC franchise a disservice. It was a good sequel, just not a quantum leap in the franchise like FC3 was.
I will say though, the map editor is just brilliant. Being able to place A.I. and uploading custom made missions is one of the most underrated features it didn't get credit for.
I actually think this game was superior to Far Cry 3 despite it's similarities. Far Cry 3 fell off half way through due to one of the villains death while Far Cry 4 I thought maintained it's momentum all the way through.
I completely agree with killing the most enigmatic and interesting villain being a bad decision, especially considering it was midpoint through the game. With that said, FarCry 3 was a great game but i really didn't warm to FarCry 4 and although I tried my hardest, several times in fact, it felt more like an expansion rather than a full-blown sequel. And Kyrat didn't interest me as much as the tropical "paradise" in FarCry 3; does anyone else feel the same?
What momentum tho? All I remember was two faction leaders always telling me what to do or arguing what choice to make. I wish I could have sided with Pagan since the beginning. Pagan was a refreshing villain but it was mostly in the shadows. Shame
there was an option to side with pagan min...
Both 3 and 4 were fantastic open world games, and i finished both, which is a rarity for myself and that genre. I usually get burnt out halfway through. Still need to beat mordor!
Shadow of mordor was great but the ending was so horrible
I enjoyed both of them thoroughly!
Far Cry 4 Doesn't Get the Credit it Deserves Um, yes it did, it was a great game and received great reviews about a whole year ago.... I loved it. NEXT!!
It was a short game,the map was not very big and a lot of "blocks" between areas. After you bit the game(the esay platinum ever) you dont have much to do,except randoom events that are very lame
Far Cry 3 got amazing DLC named Blood Dragon,in that regard i'm really disappointed with Far Cry 4 although i really enjoy playing it there's something missing. ( The Yeti DLC is not a good substitute for Blood Dragon,not even close)
I loved Far Cry 4. But then I didn't play Farcry 3 so everything seemed new and fresh.
Far Cry 4 was an awesome games. So was 3. I will always support quality SP focused FPS games. They're a dying genre but one of my favourites.
awesome game, but one thing it did that far cry 3 didn't, was prohibit me from going certain places. something i detest in a supposed open world game. it also happened in witcher 3. its happening now in fallout 4, i'm at the edge of the map, but its funny how some open world games have that problem and some do not.
Planning to pick up Thursday for $12 on sale at BB and GC unlocked. Glad to hear all the love this game still receives!
I feel like I'm the only person who finds Far Cry 3 and 4 really corny in terms of story telling and I didn't think Vaas was the greatest villian to ever grace gaming. Blood Dragon was probably the most interesting piece of Far Cry in my opinion.
Blood dragon was awesome. Love all the corny 1 liners. Also, the music was perfect!
I just started playing 3 (I wanted to see what all the fuss is about), but I can tell the story/writing is corny. I can still find interest in it though. I try not to let it bother me, whether it's a game or movie when I figure the conclusion will be worth it. I thought FC4 would have been less so from the trailer. Don't know how many FC4 trailers there are. That one E3 trailer.
Agreed. Blood Dragon was killer! Can I have another? Probably not.
The only aspect of FC4 I didn'g like was the story. The whole pagan min communicating over the radio to taunt you was really hammy. Pagan min didn't have enough screen time, and I took over the fortresses before even doing the story parts, so it felt really odd going back to them to "sneak in" when really it should've been under my control ... aside from that it was fun. I think I clocked 35 in it. I didn't do all he side activities, but I felt satisfied.
Far Cry 4 is awesome, loved it
I haven't beaten far cry 4 it just never grabbed me. I think I just didn't feel obligated to beat it since I got it for free after the whole assassin's Creed unity fiasco
credit for what ? been the same game but with a 4 instead of 3 ?
I enjoyed FC3 more than 4 but man I can't wait for Primal.
I enjoyed it.. But much like fallout 4, its more of the same.. The engine shouldve been upgraded..
I liked the secret ending in 4. So crazy that you can get credits after 15 minutes. He tells you to wait there and he actually comes back and you finish the game. I played the hell out of 4. Only thing I didn't like was the arena. I never did get that special gun because leveling up was way too slow. Should have been level 5 for that gun, not 10. Very satisfying taking out outposts in any way you choose. That Crossbow was so sexy.
Cause its FC3 reskinned , that could be a reason
