    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.

    I think the people complaining either A) haven't given it enough of a chance B) just hate Ubisoft no matter what or C) Aren't FC fans inI think the people complaining either A) haven't given it enough of a chance B) just hate Ubisoft no matter what or C) Aren't FC fans in general... I have been into gaming my whole life (I'm 36 now) and I am pretty honest when it comes to game reviews but in this case I have no idea where the bad reviews are coming from.

    I agree with the critic that said this was Ubisoft's best game ever. It's DEFINITELY the best out of the FC series. It's like if you took everything good about Far Cry and shook it up with a bit of GTA5. I mean GTA5 is incredible and epic (almost flawless?) and pretty much in a class of its own but I see nods in this game for sure. No game has torn me away from PUBG since it was in early pre-release and this one did it! It was obvious that Ubisoft took consumer feedback into consideration in every step of this game. No more climbing towers!

    DUNIA looks amazing and barely uses any space with such a huge game, the graphics are on point, it's clearly been optimized for both the red and green team. I mean from day 1 I haven't experienced any glitches or crashes... That might even be a first with Ubisoft?

    The only downside is yes, the plot falls flat a bit at times but some of the script writing and voice acting is just over the rails hilarious (in a good way). The game has me saying WTF an awful lot! The progression system is good - you play for weapon unlocks, perk rewards and cash. Cash can buy you weapons, vehicles, and other miscellaneous (like fly fishing rods!) items early if you bank enough. There are micro-transactions but they are kinda in the background and totally not necessary to use which is how it should be. There are lots of attachments for the vast array of weapons. Overall I am really impressed!!

The gameplay is enjoyable and fun, the scenario was stunning, the story great but not what I expected. Maybe if it wasn't so, I mean, explosive and more focusing on character aspect maybe I could enjoy even more. By the way I like it, 8/10. Expand

    NPCs talk too much. It's annoying. We can skip but it kills the story. Its 6.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Практически ничем не отличается от FAR CRY 4. Ожидаешь как минимум новых зданий, новых дополнений по карте, новую анимацию лица. Нет, всё тоже что и раньше. Не могу назвать хотя бы одного пункта, по которому эта игра лучше предыдущих частей. Довольно скучный сюжет, те же аванпосты , практически такая же графика. Жду выхода шестой части! судя по трейлеру должно быть и веселее и качественнее ! Expand

    Having played all 6 far cries (blood dragon, primal). I conclude that this is worst part by far, it has nothing new or good in it. Ghost reconHaving played all 6 far cries (blood dragon, primal). I conclude that this is worst part by far, it has nothing new or good in it. Ghost recon Wildlands supersedes this pile in every aspect. It seems Far Cry finally followed in footsteps of Mass Effect and Assassins Creed... Shame really. Expand

    Ubisoft, stop making open worlds. Yours are boring and lifeless. Only filled with unaceptable fedex quests and a poor storyline.

    Ubisoft, stop making open worlds. Yours are boring and lifeless. Only filled with unaceptable fedex quests and a poor storyline.
    The gameplay here makes no sense at all. Fights are either too easy or impossible because you have almost a entire army against you. You need to use the NPC to fight with you. Yes, worst idea ever.
