    It's truly lacking in graphic capability, I can only play on 1 screen at a time, and the graphics are definitely not that clear.

    Far cry 4 was one of the greatest games I have ever played, hands down. I feel that they could have put more detail into the games. Such as having a gillie suite or camouflaging yourself. The ability to climb up trees would have made it awesome because when your getting attacked by an animal all you can do is run and use drugs. It doesn't allow you to go into the prone position. I was not a fan o the sniper rifling, in that they add extra wobble to your scope to make it realistic. i don't like that and i noticed the change as well in BF4... they did the same thing. The bowing was not extensive enough for me. you only get three bow options. it would have been cool if you had more options to customize your character and your weapons. the weapon sections were average.The game map is huge and I received the game with my present. unfortunately the PSN networks got hacked. None the less, this game has one of the biggest maps I've ever seen and it reminds me a lot of assassins creed in the fact that you have to do a lot of treasure hunting. getting the bushmasters gun was amazingly tedious. The story line was amazing and the graphics were beautiful. one awesome game over all and I would advise playing on hard.

    The game is still extremely glitchy -- my (1-2) Campaign Co-Op encounters destroyed my entire inventory. My wallet was maxed but now only holds 250,000; my loot bag was fulled upgraded but now only holds 30 items again, and my Kyrat Fashion Week quests are all screwed. I also just froze up during the non co-op campaign version of the game as while Ajay was waking up from a Yogi trip. Don't get me wrong, this game is extremely fun in many aspects, but the glitchiness has ruined all chances for achieving trophies/achievements, which really sucks.

    More of the same is okay by me where Farcry 3 is concerned, really looking forward to trying this out.

    I just realized how heavy ubisofts presence has been this past couple months. They might burn themselves out if they aren't careful

    So is this like the New Vegas of Far Cry? Ubisofts needs to get their shit together.

    Hey Ubisoft Your starting to become like EA Stop that.

    I think EA now has done a great deal to get out of their notoriety. Personally I'm actually quite fond of how EA is handling things now. (mainly from experience with BF4 launch until present)

    Yeah EA did fix themselves

    Barely a mention of the ASTOUNDINGLY powerful editor and you actually said that MP map editing will be patched in at a later date... this is misleading as it is not true. They said they MAY patch it in. Big difference there. Ubisoft has been trying to get away from PvP map editing since FC2 and has finally done it. There is absolutely NO confirmation that Ubisoft is even WORKING on adding PvP editing back into the game. This review also doesn't mention the lack of deathmatch or team deathmatch. Nor does it mention that MP is only 5v5 and that there are no dedicated servers. Customers NEED TO KNOW that Ubisoft is gimping the MP to the extreme. This review is so lacking it's almost irresponsible. People make purchasing decisions based on these reviews.

    Most of these issues are probably not even issues for Gamesradar, as their reviews are often written for console versions of the game. The map editor is probably even less of an issue for most users as most likely never touched it. I've not played the first Far Cry, but I've been with the franchise since the second entry and multiplayer has always been a throwaway addition. The only part of FC2 multiplayer that was at all fun was some of the wacky maps people made, but even then it was just a flash in the pan. For me, I'd rather Ubisoft actually move away from PvP entirely. The meat of the franchise is in the campaign, and the addition of a cooperative partner is a move in the right direction. If they focused more on making Far Cry a stronger single player and cooperative experience (4 player co-op would be amazing) I don't think the majority of their fanbase would even miss what has always been very mediocre multiplayer.

    With FC1 on consoles and FC2 the MP community was VERY active and lasted YEARS. You are absolutely right that the MP was average to bad. But the insanely powerful editor made up for it. I TOTALLY think it's amazing that they're finally supporting SP map editing. But why does having SP editing mean we can't ALSO have MP editing? And FC MP WOULD be good if only Ubisoft would listen to fans that have been shouting the solution to their MP problems at the top of their lungs for years. Instead we've been ignored and we get people like you that just want us to go away completely. Fortunately over at the official forums there's been an explosion of fan anger towards Ubisoft regarding this decision not only from an insane amount of map editors coming out of the wood work but from pure SP fans showing us support. So you've got your awesome mode. I'm happy for you. I enjoy the SP as well. But why does you having your mode mean I can't have mine? Stop telling fans like me to go away.

    Don't mistake me wanting them to focus on the campaign component meaning I wouldn't like them to do multiplayer right, I just think that at this point, they've shown that they really have no intentions on doing good multiplayer, so I'd rather see them focus all resources on what they do do well. The industry has a problem thinking they can't sell a package without competitive multiplayer, but they never do anything innovative enough to actually pull people away from the MP juggernauts.

    I highly doubt that the map editor will significantly influence anyone's decision to or not to buy Far Cry 4.

    The game looks great, look forward to test it
