Far Cry 4 has weak characters, but its campaign, co-op, and competitive multiplayer feature incredibly fun freedom.

Audience Reviews

7 / 10.0
An open jungle, a rebel war, a tyrant, a guy who ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time, lots of guns...sound familiar? Yes, another Far Cry run of a giant open world that might be too large for its own good. Far Cry 3's mediocre missions were made up for an excellent story with fantastic characters, however, Far Cry 4 seems to be doing the opposite. You play as Ajay
