Storyline

Ajay Ghale was given a dying wish from his mother: Return her ashes to a place called Lakshmana in the mysterious Himalayan land of Kyrat. However, once he arrives, he's thrust into a civil war between the rebellious Golden Path and despotic, flamboyant king Pagan Min. As Ajay undertakes the duty his own father died in service of, he must destroy Min's forces in the south and north of Kyrat, on top of negotiating a dispute between the Golden Path leaders (Amita and Sabal), as they debate tradition versus progress, all the while fighting closer and closer to the mysterious Lakshmana. As Ajay, the player will navigate the hostile terrain of Kyrat freely. Destroy enemy outposts to gain a foothold in contested territory. Explore the otherworldly Shangri-La through the eyes of a legendary Kyrati warrior. Hunt for animals or assist the locals in retrieving hostages, or assassinate soldiers in Assassination and Eye for an Eye missions. Kyrat is Yours, Take it Back. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

At the end of the game, Pagan suggests that the beginning meal took place in Pagan's Palace ("you sat right there"). This is a mistake as the game indicated that the meal at the beginning of the game took place in De Pleur's Compound; indeed, in the alternate ending, Pagan and Ajay fly by helicopter to Pagan's Palace so that Ajay can place his mother's ashes in the shrine.

So close, but so far away
24 November 2014 | by Kop_ReazSee all my reviews

Some might say it's Far Cry 3.5 or Far Cry 3.1. But to me, it's just a glorified mod for Far Cry 3. The animations are same, the characters are the same, the missions are the same, the gameplay is the same. These might get old for some.

I liked the game very much in comparison with other Ubisoft releases this year. I didn't notice any bug or graphics glitch. The graphic design was amazing. A beautiful vast open world with so many mysteries. Many people worried that absence of Vaas is a downer. And yes it is. But Pagan Min is also a fantastic antagonist. Ubisoft advertised him cleverly, saying he is "Anti-Vaas". Where the truth is Pagan is a lot like Vaas. The story is touchy, but felt cheap in a way.

For some reasons Far Cry 4 annoyed me a lot. For starter it depicts Nepal in a wrong way. Vehicles in Nepal drive on the left. The developers completely got the design of autoricksaws wrong. And Kalinga should speak Sanskrit. The Radio Free Kyrat is the most annoying part. That RJ is the worst RJ in the history of the world. I miss Brian Tyler's musical score.

Other than those, Far Cry 4 is a regular Ubisoft open world game. With the obvious game structure.

Final Verdict: 79%. If you feel like you couldn't get enough of Far Cry 3, then this game might not be for you. The campaign is kinda depressing.
