This game begins with your character Arjay arriving in KYRAT.

The first impressions of the game with the third person perspective lead you to believe its being run ruthlessly. At some point you’ll meet the director in charge of PAGAN. At first, seems very friendly, charming almost, needless to say this view doesn’t remain and Arjay is flung into the middle of a civil war (where your role is to help the GOLDEN PATH Rebels) Make sense? **Far cry fans nodding holding controllers**

The Gameplay is basically an open world shooter with the main base of every far cry game to date. The campaign is quite in-depth and there are certain choices to be made which do shape future missions and the overall outcome. Some of the side quests are filled with their own extras which contribute to the story. There are a lot of side quests to choose from including hunting, green running, assassinations, hostage rescue plans and many more. Also on top of all this you can build up your carrying capacity which helps when collecting animal skins and flowers.

I have personally played Far Cry 4 on both the Xbox 360 and now on the PlayStation 4. I have to say the graphics are amazing as ever with the PS4. The loading times seems to differ in comparison to the Xbox 360 as does the fact that on PS4 the game is far less glitchy.

The Far cry 4 gaming experience is far more superior to the others in the franchise including Far Cry Primal. To anyone who enjoys shooters or free roam gaming this is a must play.

10/10

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

Since the arrival of the next generation consoles, there has been a complete lack of proper survival horrors. Silent Hill PT was announced and a demo was released, but even though the great following and the demand being there, it was cancelled due to fallings out within KONAMI. Even though now it has been confirmed to be back in production (under the new name of Allison Road) the market for survival horror was left pretty empty.

After years of making the Resident Evil franchise into a zombie based shooter CAPCOM have finally made a new edition to the popular series in the form of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard. I’m sure i wasn’t the only sceptic, thinking ‘Yes they may say its a survival horror but it’ll still just be another shooter…’ You’ll be wrong!

It all starts off with the main character, Ethan getting a video message from his wife Mia, who has been missing for years previously. He tracks her to an old abandon house in the middle of a creepy woods, which once belonged to the Baker family. The Bakers had mysteriously disappeared years beforehand leaving the house to rot where it sat.

I don’t want to give too much away as i could ruin the plot for you but i will say it is really twisted and gripping!

I played this without the VR headset and still it had me on the edge of my seat. You cannot relax for a second, a combination of the soundtrack, the creepy setting and realistic graphics you are expecting at every turning something to jump out on you. as you can imagine with a VR this would be ten time worse. The graphics are amazing as mentioned above. The game play and controls are extremely fluent, my only frustration being the ending anticlimactic but it does leave  you wondering whats next in the series.

If you’re like me and a huge survival horror fan, i would put this a s a MUST PLAY! it had me jumping out my seat on many occasions where the unexpected occurs. This has to be one of the best horror games I’ve ever played and I’ve played a lot!  Out of my top 10 of all time this would be classed as third best resident Evil of all time.
