Far Cry 4

 June 8, 2016      

Far Cry is one of the best shooting games out there. It rivals Activision’s Call of Duty games in sales and the franchise has amassed a loyal following.

Back in 2014, they released Far Cry 4 which, up to this day, is still quite popular. The game sold more than 7 million copies worldwide and was considered a massive success. It even got more sales than its predecessor, Far Cry 3.

The game follows the protagonist Ajay Ghale, a Kyrati-American who returns to his homeland, Kyrat. He was set to scatter the ashes of his late mother.

Upon his arrival in the country, he quickly saw that the country was torn between two factions: the Royal Army led by the game’s main antagonist, King Pagan Min, and a rebel movement known as the Golden Path who vows to reclaim the country from Pagan Min’s oppressive rule.

The bus that Ghale was in was immediately raided by the Royal Army. Ghale was then sent to a prison where he found the commander of the Golden Path, Sabal.

With the help of Sabal, the two of them managed to escape the prison. After Sabal tells Ghale the history of the Golden Path, Ghale took on the mantle.

It was then learned that Ajay’s father was the one who created the rebel faction. Now fighting for the group’s existence. It is up to Ajay Ghale to help the rebel army reclaim the land that’s rightfully theirs.

There are currently two commanders in the faction: Sabal and Amita. Sabal wants to uphold the traditional values set by Ghale’s father while Amita wants to further the group by doing drug trade for money.

Ajay’s decisions will ultimately lead to the rise or fall of the group and it is up to the player which one he/she chooses.

The game has two endings and it involves the player’s decision with regards to how you deal with Pagan Min. The first and the one considered to be the bad ending is where Ajay kills Pagan Min on the spot.

On the other hand, the good and more in-depth ending is when Ajay decides to listen to Pagan Min.

If you choose the good ending, Pagan goes on to talk about the real story behind everything. Apparently, Ajay’s father tasked his mother, Ishwari, to spy on Pagan Min. But instead, both of them fell in love with each other and bore a child which they named Lakshmana.

After knowing Ishwari’s betrayal, Ajay’s father killed Lakshmana but was then later killed by Ishwari.

Ishwari then fled Kyrat with the young Ajay and the rest was history, well, until the game’s story begins.

The Far Cry 4 is a little bit more diverse than the Call of Duty games. For one, players have the right to choose how they will approach each mission. They can either go stealth or they can go with brute force.

Ajay also has a variety of weapons at his disposal and he is aided by the Golden Path warriors. These warriors are controlled by the computer AI, so all you have to really worry about is Ajay.

During the course of the game, you will choose decisions that will affect the outcome of the game.

Far Cry 4 is a very good shooting game. If you want a more robust FPS game than Call of Duty, definitely play Far Cry 4.
