That said, more does not necessarily mean better, and the truth is that the wilds of Kyrat simply aren't as beguiling as the Rook Islands were.

Far Cry 4 may have installed a despot, but it's still the undisputed king of the open-world shooter.

    So this is what some of the major websites have to say about Far Cry 4. Do you think they were right, or not? Let us know in the comments below

    I could care less about reviews. If I'm interested in a game I'll play it and decide for myself. The only opinions I consider are those of people I know. I could care less about site reviews.

    ...then why are you posting in a thread that exists to collect reviews?

    Only played the opening so far, (Been playing GTA V mostly) but it looks way better than I expected it to be.

    I just saw the endings. What the fuck ubisoft.
    The game looks real fun though, but reminds me too much of FC3 with some neat added stuff, which isn't a bad thing but I don't want to spend 65$ on a game I owned already. I'll wait until it goes down to 40$. Pagan looks like a cool dude.

    You mean the endings to the singleplayer story?! Why would you look that up if you didn't buy the game?

    Heard the story was ass. FC3 atleast had a decent enough story that kept me interested. FC4 doesn't sound exciting in any way, from what I've sene, so it doesn't make much difference if i see the ending or not. I just wanted to see how dumb it would end. I don't take a peek at the ending at games with a story i'm interested in.

    Agreed! I'm waiting on FC4 for a bit as I know it's not that similar, they change up each time from game to game, but I do expect great things from this.
