Thou Shall Not Turn Of The Coun­try Mu­sic

Games Master - - Feature On The Cover! -

Most cars here are fit­ted with FM ra­dios, and this be­ing mid­dle Amer­ica, there’s a whole lot of twangy bump­kin tunes on it (no of­fence to fans of the genre). Steal a ride off a farmer, truck driver, or a mem­ber of Eden’s Gate, and it’ll be tuned to ei­ther that or Chris­tian rock by de­fault. Run­ning down mouth-foam­ing clan mem­bers to an an­gelic choral piece adds a some­what cul­tural qual­ity to pro­ceed­ings, and it cer­tainly makes a change from both Far Cry 4’s cheery Hindi pop and Far Cry 3’s is­land reg­gae. Sure, you can switch it off in­stantly and fo­cus on the con­vinc­ing roar of your dirt bike, ATV, pickup, or big rig, but to do so would be miss­ing out. Ubisoft’s mu­sic choices are ex­cel­lent at root­ing you in a spe­cific time and place, and for that it’s al­ways worth lis­ten­ing to.
