I think it's only fair that I post the review on here, I pre-ordered this game and until this day on amazon it hasn't arrived, so a refund was stated and then I went and bought it, luckily for £29.99 at Sainsbury's. Let me just start by saying: WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!
If only I had this day on release, I could of enjoyed it much more! The graphics and visuals are stunning and the game play on single player is good. The campaign is good but for some may take a little getting used to. It has the BEST introduction to a game that I've ever played and you feel sad for your brother just minutes into the game! The tension is there from the get-go.
This is certainly the best singleplayer campaign I have ever played, I prefer this game to Skyrim and Red Dead Redemption and even my two favorite games this year being Hitman: Absolution and Dishonored. It's sandbox approach to almost everything brings back old school game and it feels rarely scripted.
HOWEVER, even a near perfect game needs a flaw, and it's so unfortunate to say it comes in the multiplayer, in modern day games are assessed on multiplayer but this is farcry's biggest let down, with such a surprisingly small online community this game is only going one way, down.
To conclude if you want the best singleplayer game you are most likely to even play. Then this is a must.
Definitely my: GAME OF THE YEAR. 9.5/10
