FarCry- The Game that left me high and dry

Hi there,

Another aspect of FarCry4 game that i admire is that the background music has been added to suit the place of action. Lots of Indian references and few songs which are in Punjabi are added at the situations to add the Indian spicy touch to the game. There are these few tracks which are done by a band called The Bombay Royale, which basically makes music of the 60s and 70s bollywood Indian style music. These tracks add to the nostalgia of the timeline we are fighting in Kyrat.

Am adding few of the videos that i caught during the gameplay. You can also check out The Bombay Royale in here.

The famous one from the band.. its called The River.

This game is mostly single player script which means i hardly get a team to do something. Like this one where i have to sole handedly destroy an army of Pagan Wrath Convoys which are doing a patrol in the war hit area.

Will come back for more.. till then keep playing keep admiring,…
