Far Cry 4 Review | WGTC

Imagine yourself playing a first-person shooter. You’re locked, loaded and ready to take on the enemy in one of its held territories, but notice that the odds are in their favour. You could, of course, take it slowly and try to lure them away one-by-one or two-by-two and take care of it that way. Or, you could simply jump on top of the elephant standing 10 yards away. It’d make the perfect mount for you and your grenade launcher, don’t you think?

What I’ve described isn’t part of any personal acid dream, or anything of that sort. In actuality, it’s just another day at the office for Far Cry 4 protagonist Ajay Ghale. In a game filled to the brim with animals, enemies and explosions, elephants aren’t just part of the exotic scenery. In fact, for the first time ever, the giant beasts are actually allies of sorts, and can be used in battle whenever they’re nearby. If they’re shot, they’ll charge, but if you ride them into conflict you can expect to get a first-hand glimpse at some incredible-looking trunk kills.

There's no denying the quality of this game but for me ot suffers from the same issues I had with FC3. It's too repetitive. Yeah, it's a great sandbox for destroying things, but I would love a game that is.much more dynamic in its gameplay.

I am also playing Dragon Age and it is dynamic. There are many objectives and many different paths and choices in how to fulfill them.

Now, imagine a Far Cry 5 set in Alaska or Siberia...or split b/w Vietnam and the former. You ate given objectives but they are broad and can be accomplished in various ways. Maybe you can start in either place.

You take put a radio tower but the next time, they set a trap and u have to find another way to cut off communication. You liberate an outpost and next time they are waiting...and force u to change plans.

Next gen must also mean an evolution of gameplay. Imagine an Infamous game in which choice really mattered...instead of spray painting etc. True immersion is accomplished by more than just graphics. We have that down, now let's think outside of the box.

Dragon Age Inquisition is my GotY for this reason. And I'm certain the Witcher 3 and even Batman will follow suit. Far Cry 4 isn't bad. It just isn't anything different. I actually think AC:Unity made more progress. Though, it could learn from Bioware and CD Projekt Red, take a yr off and come back swinging.
