Far Cry 4 is an open-world first person shooter adventure game created by Ubisoft.
The gameplay consists of mainly first person shooter action, where the player is tasked with going to different areas of an open-world map in order to shoot particular people to complete a task. Players can slowly upgrade their equipment/weapons through what they earn in completing certain tasks. This is repeated until the player finally finishes the game.

Pro Adventure aspects add to what would be a stale FPS
Being able to scale cliffs, hunt and trap animals, and use ones environment as a weapon against enemies adds to the basics of first person shooting making for a fun adventure game on top of a slick FPS.
Pro Options in play due to creativity
There are so many ways to tackle a situation that makes this game what it is. In one instance you could lure an animal towards enemies in order to kill them, or in another you could run everyone over with a truck. Even better is that explosives can be attached to things, even vehicles, so you can even send the vehicle towards a crowd and blow it up from a distance. Basically you are free to choose how you want to approach just about every situation in the game and those that feel like playing around have the chance to get really creative, which is half the fun.
Con Environment feels too familiar
While Farcry 1-3 all had different locales that had their own styles, 4 looks much like 3 and is not that much of a departure. For those looking for a different experience it is not going to be found in 4 sadly.
