While it may not wholly evolve the franchise in a radically new way, Far Cry 6 smooths out many of the wrinkles and growing pains previous Far Cry games have had, while building on a foundation that’s largely worked for the series since 2012’s Far Cry 3. Far Cry 6 strikes a great tonal balance, a variety of activities and exploration that never get dull, another imposing villain whose presence can be felt throughout, and a brilliant main character. Yara is a fun playground because it’s Dani’s playground, and that’s a crucial part of the equation, part of the meaningful growth the latest entry brings to the Far Cry franchise. ¡Viva la Revolución!
The story can be a bit confusing, as is the structure of how it's played out, but this doesn't detract from the fact that this is probably the most fun I've had with a Ubisoft game and a Far Cry game in particular.
Far Cry 6 is the best version of Ubisoft's open world formula to date, but whether that's still a selling point to you is up for debate. The few advancements and new mechanics won't be enough to convince those burnt out to return for one more exotic trip, but if you're down for another lengthy checklist to complete, then the series has never been better. It's another healthy serving of comfort food; one that sticks to what it knows best while slightly iterating positively.
If I’m being honest, my frustrations with the marketing’s focus on the worst caricatures of Latinx people made me brace myself for a racist triple-A experience full of gross clichés and awkward attempts to be apolitical. Instead, I was surprised to find that more thought than I expected was put into its depiction of Latinx people. Although it isn’t perfect — those cringeworthy lines! The grind of finding gear! — it’s better than what I initially expected, and that counts for something.
If you’re interested in another Far Cry game that does the Far Cry stuff the way it’s been doing it for 10 years, you’ll probably have a good time, but if you’ve already hit your limit with this kind of game, Far Cry 6 is the ne plus ultra of why open-world game design is so badly in need of a revolution.
Excellent gameplay and graphics, but I didn't like the setting from the beginning. The island was far too big, and seemed to have almost no people or vehicles in it. I have memories of wide, empty roads. But the silliest thing was the story. It honestly felt like the writers had been given a checklist of woke elements to include, and worked the story around them. You are supposed to believe that four different rebel groups are all run by girls in their early twenties. But that wasn't enough; all the men are variously portrayed as being old, sick, weak, cowardly, treacherous, or with an inferiority complex. Sad really.
First of all, the lips didn't match with the characters voices in the first scenes. I found this game boring and repetitive, the story is not very interesting and it goes too slow I also didn't like the weapons I had available if I compare it with other shooter games. Also the graphics could be better. I played this game for over 5 hours and I could keep playing it or even finish it but as I don't think I wouldn't be enjoying it much I think it's a good time to retire and try other games. Overall I feel that they just spent the money to hire an actor's face and voice (yeah, the Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul bad guy) and didn't try improve the gameplay nor the story. I mean, it's not a bad game but I don't think you could rate it over a 7.
It's Far Cry, but probably more bland and unfun than it's really ever been. It's overly goofy, the story is generic and feels very forced, the open world is tedious more than anything, the addition of ammo types becomes a chore to handle, enemy types are inconsequential, etc., etc., etc. It is possibly the most Ubisoft Ubisoft game that has Ubisofted. It's just recycled stuff that's pretty outdated at this point, the visuals are worse than they should be, and the 'new' stuff is much more annoying than innovative. There is nothing horribly wrong with the game but there is nothing that it did specifically well either. It is average at best, and boring most of the time.
