    What perfect videogame comfort food for at least, say, another 205 days.

    Even if we ignore the ridiculous quantity of content, and we focus only on the main storyline, we still get an amazing experience. Far Cry 5 is not the game we expected, but it’s exactly what we should have wanted in the first place.

    Far Cry 5 is mechanically sound and varied. You’ll find something that entertains you, and Ubisoft has nailed all of the underlying elements of character and world progression. At the same time, it squanders some decent writing because it can’t decide what kind of game it is.
  4. Far Cry 5 is looking really unique. The world, the cult, and the gameplay are solid and fun.

    The wonderful chaos of the open world and your choice of how to tackle it is occasionally stifled by bad boss fights and worse boss speeches.

    All in all, the duo multiplayer experience of Far Cry 5 is fantastic. The aesthetics alone manage to overshadow the frustrating mechanics that the game brings to bear and keep us wanting to play...If you’re looking for a fun, engaging, exciting game to play with a partner, this is definitely one to try out. Let’s hope that the games industry creates more partner play experiences for those who love to game together, but not necessarily in huge piles.

    The ambitious setting doesn't pay off in this story that seems to want to hedge every chance it gets. The end result is a story that goes nowhere, says nothing, and fails to live up to the previous settings and villains in the franchise. If you can get past that... the rest is pretty much fine if you're up for another Far Cry game.

Also keeping Dunia as an engine was an amazing choice , the engine looks amazing and this huge game only eats 26 GB of space !! Expand

    Would definitely recommend this to anyone who still hasn't experience this amazing game. There are people that fault this game for a number ofWould definitely recommend this to anyone who still hasn't experience this amazing game. There are people that fault this game for a number of reasons, however the story is so good and strong it keeps pulling you back for more. I've played through the story of this game about 4 times, on multiple different systems, and I never get tired of playing this. It also has many side activities that keep you busy if you decided to take a break from the main story. Additionally these activities will still be available after the main story and so it gives you plenty to keep yourself occupied after then.

    The developers didn't include the in depth hunting system from the previous Far Cry games and instead changed it so that skill points give you those upgrades you would usually earn from hunting, which does make the game lack for one it's greater features.

    Overall I rate this game a 9/10 as the game has many perfect qualities but due to the watered down hunting system I cannot give it a full 10.

    Usually I agree with the criticism of metacritic users,but not this time,they underrate this game.
    Sure it has some serous problem - above all the setting of the difficulity levels - but that does not change the fact that it is a very beautiful game with an excellent story,which has one of the best soundtracks amongst the current games.

    Far Cry 5 is a good game, but at the same time it is not far from its predecessor Far Cry 3 and in fact has not brought anything new.Far Cry 5 is a good game, but at the same time it is not far from its predecessor Far Cry 3 and in fact has not brought anything new.

    However, I note that the towers were finally removed from the game. Added interactive events and various activities, such as fishing, while walking around the world. Ubisoft has finally abandoned the plot in the style of find and revenge.
    The game is pretty high quality and dynamic firefights with opponents.
    The world is finally gone from the setting of mountains and tropics. Now we move across the plains.

    On the other hand, the plot does not stand out outstanding. Throughout the game, the main events lose their momentum and we get bored. As a result, I could not even get through the game to the end. Really new cool mechanic in the game did not appear. Remains all the same capture outposts. In addition, Far Cry 5 was the first harbinger of the appearance of microtransactions in Ubisoft games.

    Verdict
    The game is not bad, you can play. But it could have been better.

    Holy County

    Far Cry 5 is an average game and a bad Far Cry.
    The story is the highlight here. Faith and Jacob's regions were fun to play but the Jonh's region was an utter mess. That zone took a lot from the game making it much worse than what it could have been. The story kept me interested till the end though. Moving to gameplay, It downgraded most of the systems from previous titles while introducing mediocre game mechanics and a horrible A.I. On PC this game is an unoptimised mess, hitting low frames and constant stuttering on computers that should handle it. I would not recommend getting this game, especially if you enjoyed previous Far Cry games.

    I'm giving 3 as i had fun in John Seed region. This is more down to earth, with raw rural unfilled gunfight setting and i'm giving greatI'm giving 3 as i had fun in John Seed region. This is more down to earth, with raw rural unfilled gunfight setting and i'm giving great credit a mission where i need to race Nick Rye wife to the labour ward. It was fun. But that's it.

    Going round to other region, this suppose to rural folks taking down bunch of mindless cultist turns out to be half baked fantasy, especially confronting Faith seed. Is she really real or just my messed hallucinations?. the story goes bland here.As For Jacob seed, not much as fun but there are few mission (Hurk mission, freeing hostages) as a saving grace.

    The ending. Confronting the root of all evil in the game, Joseph Seed. It it all messed up!. You know what i mean when you complete this part, wasted your 30+ hour journey to hunt him down, regardless your choice, it doesn't really matter, you'll ended become his mindless flock anyway. So best choice is to walk away from very beginning of the game makes you wonder, why i need spend $70 for a game when the best part of the deal completes in 10 minutes?. I would recommend to buy if this game is 90% discount. Till then stay away from this game folks.
