PSXE Poll Update: Far Cry 4 is A Winner

It's a very well-received new entry in an award-winning series, and our readers love it.

According to the results of our latest poll, the majority of readers say Far Cry 4 is a terrific game and easily one of the best of 2014.

In our recent review, we didn't entirely disagree with that assessment, although we did have some problems with the story and characters. Other critics might say the game was too similar to its predecessor but really, does that deserve critique? One minute, we say we don't want developers to change our favorite games and the next, we're demanding that designers give us something new. A Catch-22, no?

Anyway, this week, we want to know if you plan on getting a new game console for Christmas. Will you finally get the PlayStation 4 as a gift? Or, if you already have the PS4, do you hope to round out your gaming experience with either the Xbox One or Wii U? Let us know.

Sadly, I won't be able to indulge myself to any new console. My PS4 and Vita are way enough for me :D

If I had some extra cash though, I'd probably get XB360 just for the Kinect games (purely for serving fun in upcoming parties).

We want them to keep the solid base of what we love but build on it rather than change things straight up or just leave them the same.


I'd be interested to see if anyone wants a Vita now that they have no console to buy.

I don't need any new hardware. Actually Software will be thin this Christmas too.

I have to confess, I gave in and snagged one through the Black Friday sales... I really shouldn't have but in selling the games with it, it was a good investment in saving more than 100 pounds. There arent really any games I want right now, but there is a flood of games in 2015 I am tremendously hyped for.

While I'm loving my PS4 and Vita, I know my awesome girlfriend is getting
me the Xbox One for Christmas. Don't have much time for it, but in the limited time I have, I'll be playing me some Forza and Dead Rising 3. :)

From a business stand point, Ubisoft had to make FC4 very similar to FC3 especially since it was going to be released on older consoles. Additionally, since FC3 sold so well they want to play it safe.

Assuming that Far Cry 5 will release on PS4, XB1 and PC then they might try new things and hopefully have a better story and set of characters.

Far Cry 4 is everything I thought it would be, which is basically Far Cry 3 with better graphics and minor gameplay improvements throughout the game. My only complaint is what Ben said about the characters, but this is one of those games where you can overlook the bad story and still have tons of fun.

@TrophyHunter

lol that's -50 karma points for you.

I'm 40% done with the story and I have only done 12 missions so far. I enjoy dooing everything in the game from ripping off propaganda posters to hunting rare wild animals. There's so much do in the game @_@

@MRSUCCESS

I know but it is a lot of fun haha.

Yes, the same for me, almost at 40% and still most of the main missions to be done. I even bought all of the maps and I care more for collectibles and side missions than the story.

so with the 1st part it is a catch 22 yes but i think the point we like to make to the devs is just try some new here or there like more subtle changes or improve ments try make mechanics or things like that don't change the whole thing

as for the poll last week i couldn't say cos i didn't get the game but from my friend and what i've gathered and seen its a pritty good game like most of the others said

and then thirdly with consoles for this christmas yeah i won't be getting anything else for awhile and if was wanting something it would be a gaming PC but be just games for me some vita or 3DS or ps4 games probs and maybe some new reading material over the summer.

happy gaming
