I don't often write reviews. In fact, this is my first on Mighty Ape. But this game deserves commemoration for, quite literally, bringing a tear to my eye. The combination of intense storyline, realistic environments and stunning character development create a game which could easily be a movie – or even a real life crisis, watched from the eyes of a helpless world.
You do not simply run in, kill the enemies and make done with it. A series of mass murderers tear apart your family and force you into the jungle. It took me fifteen real world hours to get to the end of the campaign – and it was worth every minute. I ended up hating these characters with true passion, and wanting them dead more than anything else. It's a totally immersive story and I became completely lost in it.
If you haven't already, buy this game, you won't be disappointed. You will love the game and all of its twists and turns, and you will spend countless hours trying to complete it – side missions and collectables keep you busy long after the game has finished.
A total masterpiece, combining the best elements of the previous games and creating a world that you will be completely swallowed by.
Well done Ubisoft.
