Down to really old business

I am in trouble. Far Cry Primal, just like the last two games, is exactly what I am looking for in an open world shooter. It has a big world filled with little things to do that are incrementally helpful. The action is both emergent and tight. It is possible to wander off in any direction and find plenty to do if the current story mission is not of interest at the moment.

This time around no one speaks english and everyone is wearing animal skins which somehow has pulled me into the world more quickly. I feel like I am watching a kick ass boring documentary and am in control of all the best parts. All that is missing is David Attenborough making dry comments about the vicious efficiency of my long distance head shots.

There is not much else to say. The game has been out for quite a while and its quality has been widely documented. It's going to be a while before I play anything else. This will run right over the upcoming gigantic releases of the new Uncharted and Doom games. I'm not worried. They'll keep.
