Far Cry 4 Review

Far Cry 4 is probably one of the craziest power fantasy games of the year. While it doesn’t stray very far from what its predecessor laid out — in fact, it’s incredibly similar to Far Cry 3 — it serves up just enough to stand on its on as an extremely fun, albeit overall silly experience.
