Giro di recensioni per Far Cry 4


La stampa internazionale, riassunta da Reddit…


Eurogamer: 8

But there’s a reason Ubisoft pared back Far Cry 4’s story – it knew it was never going to be the main attraction. Far Cry 4 does all the things that its predecessor did and more – more weapons, more vehicles, more modes, more ground to cover – so if all you’re looking for is a big old wide open space to tear up with a friend, go forth and make merry with mortar. That said, more does not necessarily mean better, and the truth is that the wilds of Kyrat simply aren’t as beguiling as the Rook Islands were. Far Cry 4 is well worth a visit, but it’s more a backpacker’s delight than a five-star island paradise.

Don’t let a lacklustre multiplayer deter you, though. The strength of the world and its systems alone makes this one of the year’s best games and one whose enormous potential for experimentation means you’ll playing it well into 2015. By taking things to the Himalayas, Ubisoft Montreal has managed to skilfully weave an attractive partnership of awe-inspiring landscape and exhilarating, surprising action.

Joystiq: 4.5/5

There’s a staggering number of adventures to extract from Far Cry 4, whether you chase the ones laid out by the game explicitly, or the ones that develop naturally as you take in the sights. It’s another interesting and absorbing world to fall into, shoot through, burn and then guide to new beginnings. Far Cry 4 may have installed a despot, but it’s still the undisputed king of the open-world shooter.


If you’re like me, you’ll swear at Far Cry 4 after that scenario repeats enough times. Don’t tell me I failed! I just want to go and climb up the sides of mountains, hunt tigers, and hijack convoys (hello, Watch Dogs!). Far Cry 4 can be amazing in the way Far Cry 3 often was: the heated action and exploratory freedom inspires thrilling personal stories for remembering later, the kind that start with “Hey, remember that time…” and end with “…and wasn’t it awesome?!” It retains most of what made Far Cry 3 amazing, but the potential greatness is burdened by an even worse story, less memorable missions, and a formula suffering from years of overuse. When I love Far Cry 4, I really really love it. But when I don’t love it, I all but hate it. I’ll be in a better position to tell you just how that balance plays out in my full review. Look for it on Monday.

Far Cry 4 could have all of the multiplayer elements stripped away and it would still be a very strong game. If you enjoyed its predecessor and didn’t grow tired of Ubisoft Montreal’s open world formula, you’ll have a blast living the experience again.

And there can be no doubt. Far Cry 4 is a superb Skinner box, staving off monotony with constant upgrades, and it’s so expertly crafted to appeal to baser instincts, so rewarding of you embracing them, that there’s a strong chance you’ll miss the broader point that all of what you’re doing is utterly despotic. Like, say, a dictator might. A lot of games are about killing. Far Cry is about hunting. They’re not the same thing, and it is as disquieting as it is enjoyable.

Gamesradar: 4/5

Far Cry 3 remains the series’ peak, but Far Cry 4 is a lovely-looking, accomplished offering that suffers from lacklustre writing and an odd lack of purpose.

Un po' di recensioni italiane… 8,5 (Matteo Santicchia)
"Far Cry 4 è tutto quello che i giocatori che hanno amato il predecessore vogliono, ovvero un ottimo "more of the same"."

IGN Italia: 8,8 (Marco Salvaneschi)
"Atterraggio morbido in un Tibet da favola, dove v'aspetta il classico arrosto bellico, ma anche tanto buon fumo lisergico."

Everyeye: 8 (Alessandro Trufolo)
"L'ultima fatica di Ubisoft Montreal è un viaggio che potrebbe lasciare l'amaro in bocca ad alcuni, ma una destinazione obbligatoria per chiunque abbia amato l'arcipelago Rook."

Spaziogames: 8,5 (Tommaso Valentini)
"Avete Amato Far Cry 3 e la serie in generale? Bene, perché la produzione Ubisoft è la naturale evoluzione del brand." 5/5 (Claudio Magistrelli)
"Far Cry 4 non si discosta molto dalla formula del predecessore apportando alcune modifiche strutturali sopratutto al comparto narrativo e alla gestione degli avamposti. "


Buona performance dal punto di vista tecnico per Far Cry 4 su PS4: 30fps stabili, antialiasing di buona fattura grazie alla tecnica ibrida sviluppata da Ubisoft, l'HRAA, e 1080p senza compromessi.

In conclusione, nel caso di Far Cry 4 si è raggiunta la maturità di un engine già esistente (quello di Far Cry 3) su un hardware nuovo (la PS4), a differenza di Assassin's Creed Unity, che ha tentato da subito una strada nuova, con tutte le incertezze del caso.

Adesso rimarrà da vedere come il gioco si comporterà su Xbox One e su PC.
