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.
Another metacritic cesspool full of bots and incels. MC as been very slowly getting better at removing fake review spamming but this one was never cleaned up.
You can always tell immediately. There’s always some random small country crying about their language not being included because developers now need to have full 100% production quality across every market no matter how little they matter. Then you have the jobless mouth breathers who cannot afford new games and just copy/paste the same trashy, shallow two sentences because there’s some **** people somewhere in the game. The people who cry about every little thing being “WOKE” are sexually confused, self-hating snowflakes. Sorry, it’s not our fault you’ve got issues from what your daddy did to you. Get a therapist instead of having a meltdown over Disney movies and video games.
As for the game itself, this is one of three FC games since the original that actually has a soul, FC3 and 5 being the others (by the way, it’s absolutely HILARIOUS how the cretins I described above now apparently LOVE FC5 when it was at first considered “anti-American” LOL). There are some design choices and story elements that I would have definitely changed, as well as some boring side activity/questing options, but there is a decent feel of authenticity here although it’s drowned out at times. Another thing that annoys me is how the game suffers from the same thing that has plagued basically all forms of multimedia nowadays - an obsession with mistaking “let’s kill everyone around protagonist, including other main characters, and surround them with constant brutality” as “seriousness”. Sorry, but that isn’t how it works. Instead it gets to a point where there’s no reason to even a reason to develop any emotional attachment or give an F about really anything with how all these movies, shows, games, etc. that think they’re being clever or “real”. This is, I think, why the game - again, like many others - tries for moments of levity and comedy in-between, but a lot of times these come off as awkward or forced.
As for the rest, the gun play is good, graphics are great, there are no “bugs” - which is another vague code word used when these sad losers try really hard to make their “0” score of something they’ve never experienced, look like a real review.
Overall, not the greatest FC, but definitely not the worst (FC1 on console and FC Primal). It’s a solid 7.5 or so, maybe a 6 or 8 depending on how burned out you are on these “open world” action games. Of course I have to give it a 10 on this site because of the aforementioned sad trash bombing its score.
Definitely worth grabbing now as it’s super cheap on every console and *just* (literally today) became free on PS Plus.
Ok, let me show my points. I really understand why people hate this game, but why it is that much? Farcry 6 isn't a bad game. By the way, it's really good and get me addicted for hours and hours. The gameplay is simple and basically the same of other games in franchise. The graphic is good, even in the old generation they have a glimpse. The story telling is amazing, how the characters interact with others, and how they develop in the game are so natural. I just get a little upset about the end they choose (sincerely i prefer to forget about it), but the other aspects are pretty good. The AI lacks of intelligence, which is horrible in a game like farcry, and sometimes it gets annoying. The activities in the game are several, but simple. My conclusion: the game is good, it can entertain for a long time if you like farcry. It's not the best of the franchise, but the ambience in my opinion is. It worth to play.
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.
