Far Cry 4 is out there for over a month now and it’s available for all the important platforms: Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 , Xbox One and PC.
It is difficult to describe Far Cry 4 other than saying it is one of the best FPS in 2014.
The action takes place in the Himalayans in the incredible fictional country of Kyrat. You are playing the part of Ajay Ghale that comes to Kyrat to fulfill his dying mothers wish. Everything is good until you get yourself involved in the civil war against the dictator Pagan Min. The game is insane. You get to do so many things that it’s difficult even to explain. You got to destroy outposts from the back of an elephant, you rain down explosives from your gyrocopter, you ride hoverboats, sky jets and almost every vehicle that you find can be driven or transformed into some sort of contraption to surprise your enemies. You will also use a wing suit in order to go down faster from the heights of the Himalayan mountains.
In order to write your own story you will have to use a vast array of vehicles, weapons and animals. You will use a huge map that is sprinkled with really fun activities. When you combine everything, the only possible result is an awesome game.

The game looks better on a PS4 than on a XBox ONE, showing one more time that the owners of XBox are again disadvantaged because of the console hardware performances. Even though Ubisoft insisted that the new title will be played in Full HD on all available platforms, the guys from Digital Foundry tasted it and saw that on XBox ONE the game runs in fact at 1.440 x 1.080 pixels that are digitally scaled to 1920x1080p.
Even though I don’t own the game yet and I am not the biggest fan of FPS, I have played a couple of hours of this and I couldn’t have enough. I will buy it as soon as possible.
