Critic Reviews for Far Cry 4

At its core, this is just a brilliant, well-designed shooter. The weapons feel great, there’s genuine opportunities for creativity, and it all takes place in a dynamic world where random tiger attacks are commonplace.

8.5 / 10.0

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

'Far Cry 4' doesn't change up the gameplay from 'Far Cry 3,' but it does present a fascinating new world full of places to explore and stories to uncover.

Far Cry 4 is well worth a visit, but it's more a backpacker's delight than a five-star island paradise.

Far Cry 3 remains the series' peak, but Far Cry 4 is a lovely-looking, accomplished offering that suffers from lacklustre writing and an odd lack of purpose.

It may not bring many new ideas to the table but this is a hugely enjoyable open world shooter, with the best co-op options in the genre.

The rich setting is fun to explore, but the familiar gameplay experience doesn't stray far from Far Cry 3

From a very cynical perspective, Far Cry 4 is "more Far Cry," but it's delivered in such a sophisticated fashion that I can't really see how that's a negative. If each iteration is this smart and silly and beautiful and ridiculous, I don't see this series wearing out its welcome with me anytime soon.
