    I am so on the fence about this game right now. I was gonna buy it digitally for 360 because you get a free upgrade to the Xbox One version. Thing is, I just seem to bring myself to drop $60 bucks for what seems like an MMO Lite shooter with practically no coherent story. I love Bungie and Halo, but this game doesn’t anything more than “Firefight” with a bunch of people online. I was really hoping more for an RPG experience like Fallout or Mass Effect. I really love my hardcore single player shooter. I just hope Far Cry 4 delivers….
