Where should I start? If you are already a fan of the Far Cry video game franchise …then Far Cry 4 Primal will easily blow your mind. With the past couple of games that have been released I was feeling a bit bored of the same old setup and missions. However with this new addition to the Far Cry collection I can say that this is my favorite game out of all four that have been created thus far. As to not give away too much info about the game and prevent story line spoilers, this game brings adventure to a whole new level. Your character can move and interact with its environment in a way that is unique from a lot of other Bethesda games. The life-like quality of the character design as well as the scenery provides a feast for the eyes of the player. As a female I do wish that I could have chosen a female character or at least been given the option, however I understand that for time period appropriation this was not included in the gameplay. They more than cover this issue by providing equally strong female characters that carry out through the game. One of my other favorite Bethesda games Skyrim, from the Elder Scrolls collection, features the ability to use a bow as your main weapon of choice. I feel that there was not quite enough work put into the actual movement and use of the weapon itself. In primal you will find an advanced fighting style with a bow and even other customizable options that make using it more accurate and a pleasure. One of the best features of this game is actually the cutscenes… Not once did I find myself vigorously pressing the skip option. Instead, I was captivated by the depth in which they wrote character profiles, backstories, and even side quests. I would truly recommend this for any gamer out there who loves adventure, strategy, and quality video game graphics.
