FAR CRY 4

A LOVELY WORLD IN WHICH TO SHOOT THINGS.

Australian T3 - - GET CONNECTED -

Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! Well, not lions, but rhi­nos and ele­phants, ea­gles and leop­ards, and most terrifying of all, the vi­cious, mur­der­ous honey bad­ger. The world of FarCry4 is a terrifying menagerie brim­ming with teeth and claws. For­tu­nately, you have guns. Lots of them. And plenty of tar­gets to fill your crosshair.

In FarCry4 you’ll ex­plore Kyrat, a fic­tional Nepalese re­gion filled with rocky out­crops, snow-capped moun­tains, and lush forests, mak­ing for one of the most stun­ning video game worlds we’ve ever seen. Kyrat feels alive, boast­ing a com­plex ecosys­tem that plays out in front of you – you won’t for­get see­ing an ea­gle swoop down in front of you, pick up a pig and fly off with it. Com­pared with its world, the story of FarCry4 is un­der­whelm­ing, but Kyrat is such a com­pelling place you hardly need an in­cen­tive to ex­plore it.

With a wing­suit, gy­ro­copters, and all man­ner of wheeled ve­hi­cles at your dis­posal, the sense of free­dom is pal­pa­ble. As you tackle story mis­sions, side mis­sions and ran­dom events in any or­der you fancy, travers­ing Kyrat leaves you feel­ing like a Nepalese Bruce Spring­steen, born to run, the wind blow­ing through you hair.

You may baulk at the need to hunt and skin four rhi­nos in or­der to make one lone wal­let, but if you can save your an­i­mal con­ser­va­tion instincts for the real world, FarCry4 is a blast.
