Return to the Himalaya
The first games in the Far Cry franchise are a generally impressive bunch of open-world shooters, with Far Cry 3 being the standout offering of the set. Far Cry 4 is a worthy successor to that game and only really loses a few marks for being a little too similar to its predecessor. Apart from that though, it's a hugely enjoyable romp that packs in heaps of action, an engaging storyline and bucketloads of things to do. Plotwise, you play the part of a Nepalese American returning home to the Himalaya to bury his mother, but who soon gets caught up in the civil war that is raging through the land as the despotic Pagan Min seeks to cement his leadership once and for all. What follows is an open-world adventure where you get to explore the vast landscapes of the Himalaya while carrying out story missions, side quests, and all sorts of activities like hunting and racing. The game can be played in stealthy fashion or full-blown action fest, while there are multiple colorful characters to meet and with plenty of options to make in which side of the conflict you join. Although in many ways, Far Cry 4 isn't a huge departure from the third game, it's still an absolute blast to play. There's never any shortage of things to do and it's easy to get sidetracked because everything is just so much fun. The world is a beautiful one too, so exploration is truly exciting, while the story is compelling stuff, with a fantastic villain in the form of Pagan Min. The game does fall into a bit of a formula so you know what's going to happen as you venture further in, but apart from this, this is great stuff.
