Best Xbox One Games #24 – Far Cry 4
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Synopsis: Ajay Ghale visits his native home of Kyrat to pay respect to his mother’s dying wishes. When trying to have her ashes spread, conniving dictator Pagan Min has other plans in store. You will play party to a revolution with the goal of overthrowing the madman responsible for destroying the prosperity of the great mountain nation. Conquer outposts, complete quests and make new friends as you turn the tide for the rebellion. That is, if Mother Nature herself doesn’t stop you with the numerous mountain lions, tigers, and bears ready to tear you limb from limb. Oh, my!
Why it’s one of the 50 best Xbox One games: An underrated aspect of modern FPS play is that of the co-op campaign. Thankfully, Ubisoft managed to make theirs work for Far Cry 4 in a realistic way; allowing for completely honest multiplayer campaign experience. Whether or not you need help to take down the powers that be, doing so with a friend creates remarkable hijinx, including the use of gyrocopters to fly about or incessant vehicular-based trolling via running each other over. I guess exploring the wilderness and taking in the mythical wonders of Shangri-La is fun, too.
