Far Cry 4 (PS4)


A few months ago I completed Farcry 5, it was the first game in the series that I finished.

I had started Farcry 4 years ago in 2016, but just got bored a few hours in. Decided to pick it back up and give it another shot as it's successor was pretty solid fun, after putting in some time.


Overall, the gameplay was similar to Farcry 5, traverse a big world collecting stuff, kill bad guys in outposts, a few dream/hallucination sequences, and an over the top main villain.

The combat is solid and satisfying.

The story was meh. I can't really remember any details about the protagonist.

When it came to traversing the map, there was only one powered aircraft, and it could only go to a certain elevation. Given that there are a ton of large mountains in this game, traversing the open world was tedious at times. One other point about traversing the world, they really went overboard with the grappling hook mechanics.

Before picking this game back up, I had read that the tower climbing was tedious. It wasn't too bad, I would have preferred more combat focused outposts instead of towers though. They're not fun to climb, they are just something that kind of exists in the game.

Crafting was a larger part of the game than I realized at first. I found myself having to spend a lot of time hunting to get skins so I could carry an adequate amount of ammo, health packs, etc.

Graphics and Sound

I played this on the PS4 Pro, and the graphics were absolutely terrible compared to any other PS4 game. It definitely looked like a PS3 game.

Sound was good.


It was alright, easy to play and never really too difficult. Fun to waste time with, 5/10 due to the enjoyable combat and collectables... but completely forgettable story and terrible graphics.
