After the climatic end to Matto3, Jack Carver is back and out for revenge against the man who shot him. Matto4, the next mod in the series by the Mattomedia team, picks up where Matto3 left off in an all new action adventure. Taking full advantage of the powerful Cryengine, Matto4 includes: A feel good, fast-paced and gripping storyline. New characters brought to life with fresh voice acting and custom animations. New weapons: Walther P99, Benelli M3, Steyr Aug, H+K mp7's and a few extra surprises. Fun game play ideas such as the shootable fire extinguishers which blind AI and launching gasbottles like rockets! Detailed and atmospheric level design which takes you from swamps to high tech labs, sunny beaches to thunder storms, underground sewers and old mines. Typical Matto humor in the form of hidden content, cheesy dialog and gimmicks. Mattos world deviates from FarCry's in that Jack Carver is an agent for the CIA working on location, undercover. With some help from his friends...
Pros: New story with a good sense of (black) humor, amazing maps and cutscenes that are up to par with the ones of the original game
Cons: Voice acting could have been better and the difficulty level is sometimes frustrating (at least it was for me)
Summary: Every Far Cry fan should have played this mod! :)
This mod had everything I liked, it had good and interesting locations so the level design was top notch. It had a storyline that was worth going through and a host of new weapons and deadly fast gameplay. It was also the only mod I've ever seen voice acting in... and it was funny! It was used to comedic effect with a partner that pops in occasionally.
The villain was basically used as a basis for jokes. The submarine part was a little strange and totally was not expecting it. Overall I would say its probably one of the best mods out there.
CLASSIC TOTAL CLASSIC
Anyone who plays Far Cry should play Matto4 (along with the previous installments). The levels, extra weapons, gameplay are all based on the excellence of the original Far Cry, with even more humor and some very creative and surreal moments.
I played it years ago (2008 I think), and it still remains fresh in my mind how much fun I had with it, because it purely is about macho, frantic, man kills man fun!
Not to be missed! A CLASSIC!
