Far Cry 4 Review Round Up

Far Cry 4 sees you trekking through the remote region of Kyrat in Ubisoft's latest open-world FPS, but how did the critics find the journey?

Far Cry 4 Review Round Up

Ubisoft's openworld shooter saga moves to the Himalayas for this fourth outing, and introduces new features such as two player co-op and a map creator to the series. Is it worth your time and money though?

Joystiq says yes, delivering four and half stars in its review. “There's a staggering number of adventures to extract from Far Cry 4, whether you chase the ones laid out by the game explicitly, or the ones that develop naturally as you take in the sights,” it says. “It's still the undisputed king of the open-world shooter.”

“One of the year's best games,” is how CVG describes it, dropping a 9/10 score on “an attractive partnership of awe-inspiring landscape and exhilarating, surprising action”. The Guardian is similarly impressed, with a five star verdict. “Far Cry 4 truly shines in the almost bacchanalian sense of freedom it bestows on the player as they traverse through its environment,” says the broadsheet paper. “In Kyrat you have the ability to go anywhere and do pretty much anything.”

“The best the series has to offer,” declares Videogamer in another 8/10 write-up while Eurogamer also compares the game favourably to Far Cry 3 from last year. “Far Cry 4 does all the things that its predecessor did and more - more weapons, more vehicles, more modes, more ground to cover,” concludes its 8/10 review. “Go forth and make merry with mortar.”

Far Cry 4 launches on 18 November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
