This review is from: Far Cry 4 [Online Game Code]
Pros: Jokes aside, it is a fantastic game. Shares a LOT with Far Cry 3 and that's a very good thing. Think about Far Cry 3 with slightly better graphics, different story and location.
You can interact more with animals, as in ride an elephant. You are looking at maybe more than 30 hrs of game play if you just play the campaign and get all collectibles. The story is just OK, but could be a lot worse. I liked it.
Cons: Some stutter and no Dolby Live (5.1) support. The stutter thing most probably will be fixed with a patch, but I doubt they will add Dolby Live support (license and stuff savings). You can still play it in Dolby 2.1 or in 5.1/7.1 with DTS, analog board I/O or via HDMI.
Story wise... I would have liked a more rewarding ending like Far Cry 3. Don't get me wrong, it is a good ending.
Other Thoughts: Runs above 80 FPS on average in my system in ultra settings @1080p.
EVGA GTX 970 FTW
X97 ASUS Maximus Gene VII
32gb DDR3 2400mhz memory
Intel i7 4790K
Pros: Great FPS value. The card is very fast and run games beautifully. Haven't had a game running lower than 30 FPS @1080p no matter the settings. Most games do well over 60 FPS in average at ultra. It offers a great value compare the the 980. This one specifically is fairly overclocked from the get go, so you don't have to tinker much with it to get full potential. Will get a second one when I get a higher resolution monitor or if new games demand it.
Cons: The only con is noise. Thankfully I have no coil noise like others have reported, but the fans are pretty noisy. I have it running the fans 55% at approximately 65C. It gets pretty noisy with my fairly open and well ventilated case. This is why I take an egg off. I won't even mention getting upwards to 80% fan speed...
Other Thoughts: My system (relevant parts):
H100i liquid cooler
32gb DDR2 2400mhz memory
Asus Z97 Maximus Gene VII motherboard
Obsidian 350D case with stock fans
Pros: Excellent value. I have overclocked my CPU and GPU's with no issues. Does what is suppose to, very well.
Cons: Very long... doesn't fit in my Mini-ITX project :(. Well is a 1200W PSU after all
Other Thoughts: The is running:
two power hungry GTX280's in SLI until recently (using a GTX660 now)
four 2gb DDR2 OC @ 1066mhz sticks
Core 2 Quad Q9550 OC @ 3.4 mhz
one DVD/RW drive
seven 120mm fans
