    Stupid useless team AI
    everyone constantly shooting at you while you driving.

    single player microtransaction for money

    This game is feels really downgraded compared for the older FC games.
    When I play it, it just not feels right

    FarCry3 even FarCry 4 was a better game...

The original formula of taking the fight to the antagonist has been changed into a three-way structure where the player must first work his/her way up the ladder and take down the lieutenants before confronting the main antagonist of the game, Joseph Seed. The player must now work his/her way thought numerous main and side quests, the majority of which boil down to either following an NPC and clearing some area occupied by the enemy, or going to find and retrieve something the individual which gave you the mission has lost or needs.

    The story of this game could have been very, very intriguing if it had followed a more focused mission format where the player truly feels the mission which he/she is undertaking is worth their while, and not for the sole purpose of building up enough RP (Resistance Points) to progress in the main story. This interrupts the flow of the game, where when the player finally has progressed far enough to view one or two very thought-provoking cut scenes, ones that make the player truly question the morality of what it is they are doing, the game automatically cuts any chance to dwell on these questions raised by the antagonists and place them back into the open world where they must, once again, build up enough RP via fetch quests and etc to progress further in the story. By the end of the game, the player truly feels like he/she has had enough of the game and simply rushes to complete the story because of how similarly it plays out for each of the three regions.

    The map of Hope County has been divided into three separate regions with two islands in the middle. Two or three hours into the game, the player can notice the lack of anything intuiting, where the majority of the land mass is composed of trees and hills, with buildings here and there. The map, because of this, feels very small, and the player cannot help but feel cramped in the roads where he/she will encounter the enemy what feels like every thirty seconds (This is not exaggerated, when the player travels by road, the game truly plays out this way).

    The majority of what made the previous two main installments Far Cry games has also been removed for a more simplistic alternatives. Crafting, once a great way to improve ones' player and give them a real, solid reason for them to go out and hunt the diverse wildlife these games has been removed, save a few explosives and homeopathic medicine which can be crafted to aid in the players game play. The mini map has also been replaced with a bar at the top of the player's interface which does not really help with anything, and often fails to highlight key things like collectibles and even vehicles. It does, however, highlight enemies when few have been left in the area where the player is, so he/she may track them down without a problem, but even that comes of little use when the dog companion, Boomer, can simply dag them and make them glow red so they may be visible behind objects and buildings.

    Although this game does offer micro-transactions, they never feel as if they come in the way of the player's experience as they are reserved for purely cosmetic purposes, cosmetics which can also be purchased with virtual, in game dollars the player has accumulated over the course of the game.

    Overall, Far Cry 5, although it carried nuggets of what could have been a spectacular game, tries too hard to try new things which simply do not pay off. The villain, although an intriguing character which does have valid points of the many things he talks about, is wasted on a mute character which simply stares at him while he is talking and has nothing to say. It is in these times where the silence becomes especially evident the player realizes how great the game could have been if the player were able to communicate with some of the strongest characters in the entire franchise instead of wordlessly absorb everything they say. The reason player found the previous entries so intriguing was because of he odd relationships between the protagonists and the antagonists like the menacing and crazed Vass and Jason Brody, or even Ajay Ghale and the comedic and often times oddly protective Pagan Min. The relationship between the antagonist and the protagonist was what made players want to keep playing these games, listening to the conversations they had with each other and how it reflected their personalizes.

    Far Cry 5's biggest problem is the developer's desire to give the player a different experience, one which the players are not willing to partake in because of the numerous flaws the game has as well as the tedium it brings with it which, after finishing the game, just makes them feel like something is missing.

    Kind of boring if I am completely honest, theres no direction, some like that, I personally don't, progression doesn't equate to anything, nothing is beneficial from moving forward in the story line, which so far isn't that appealing, I'd love if they went into more detail about the cultist leaders, more of a backstory etc. What happened to them?

    Enemies are pretty generic as-well, mostly copy pasted versions with different beards.

    Crafting has been removed for upgrading stuff like your wallet etc which isn't a good thing imo, hunting is just another way to make money, that's it, of which money doesn't get you much, as there isn't much to actually buy other than the expensive things like vehicles which are just re-skinned versions of one another.

    - They removed too many features and didn't replace them with anything interesting to fill the void, hell even more weapons to buy would of been nice as it's lacking pretty bad.

    You're simply running around the world mindlessly doing a quest here and there and it just feels bland as you're constantly running into enemies that chase you, like how Police in GTA act when you're at 5 stars.

    The perk system is pretty generic, etc more health, more ammo.

    The game has so much potential but unfortunately it falls really short, specially the story, it should of been expanded into a more interesting story, but even that feels generic.

    Most of the quests are go here, kill these guys etc.

    I am extremely disappointed, unfortunately DLC won't even expand upon the main games story-line which could of been so great.

    - Value for money is simply not here, I'd wait for a sale if I could go back knowing about the game.

    Moronic and predictable story. Basically, a Far Cry 4 with different environments and characters thrown around. Microtransactions by the bucket. Game is too easy on any difficulty since AI is non-existent.
    You shoot one guy and others start running towards you mindlessly or just sit around doing nothing.

    If you want a good game these days, it will most likely come from PS4, that's where most good game developers are now. On the PC side, all we have is Ubisoft, EA and Bethesda churning out garbage year after year.
    I gave the game a 3 for the graphics.

    I love the Far Cry series, and was really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, disappointed.

    First of all, the graphics and artwork is beautiful, no complaints there.

    But my three largest complaints are save glitches, pacing and repetitiveness. Seems to be no rhyme or reason where I end up when I save. And there have been numerous times where tasks that I've completed weren't saved and I had to re-do them. During a hostage situation, I killed the same guy 3 times, saved and when I came back he was there again. Finally gave up and didn't bother.

    There's no pacing to this game. You are either attacking or being attacked non-stop. I miss the undisturbed hikes or drives drives in Far Cry 3. It's like they took a map, jumbled up 10 thousand fight/task instances (whether man or animal) and just dropped them on the map.

    Too much repetition. How many cars, trucks, roadblocks do you need to take out? Only to have them reappear the next time you're in the area? It's like shooting for shooting's sake.

    So although not awful, this game could have been a lot better. Hopefully Ubisoft takes notice of these negative to mixed reviews and goes back to Far Cry's roots for the next game.

    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.

    This game is so damn boring! The AI is some of the worst I have ever seen in a game, it is retarded. Vehicles drive so unrealistically, driving through a rough field is just like diving on a road. The game itself is so simple, no real plot to the game, just go to base, capture base, repeat repeat repeat. I have abandoned it, was just bored out of my mind.

    The game is like past far cry's, enjoyable and lots to do. The story line is severely lacking, with a poorly thought out story throughout and a deeply unsatisfying ending. Not worth pursuing the story to have no input into the ending at all. Really **** effort Ubisoft!

    The story is the biggest weakness of the game. I would like to give 3 out of 10 for the story. These endings are nothing special yet quite narrow and blend. The plot of this game is not better than Far Cry 2,3, or 4. You don't expect this quality and this kind of storyline from an AAA(pricewise), trigger-happy, and run and gun( and a tiny bit of stealthy) game.

    The graphics are as good as Far Cry 5 But it requires much stronger pc to run it smoothly. Yet I felt like the map is somewhat empty. all the maps have the same repetetive random encounters, and these are not good enough. when you see one, you handle it in 5 secs and move along.

    The music and songs are pretty good. But the sound effects(especially guns) are bad.

    There are no unique characters compared to the prequels. Pretty much the same characters.

    I would not be surprised if someone introduced that this game was released before Farcry 4.
    This game has got no improvements but degeneration.

    It is still a fair game for killing time.

    3: Fishing. Aw yeah, that's really good thing. Shooting can annoy. It is really relaxing.
    4: Prepper Stashes. Interesting mini-quests.
    Negative moments:
    1: Who is the main character? It seems that i'm playing for a robot without emotions, problems, his own history, type of character, thoughts. It is bot which we just control. That's awful!
    2: Against whom we play?? I can't feel any emotions against! No hate, no anger. Lets compare with Far Cry 3. I hated Vaas and Hoyt. In fourth it was Yuma. Here is no one to hate.
    3: Millions of stupid enemies everywhere. I can't simply drive a car because every 100 meters i am under attack. That's really annoying.
    4: Sniper rilfes are awful. The problem is that they are neccesary.
    5: So big map and so small number of outposts. It is interesting to take them. [Subjectively]
    Conclusion:
    It is dissapointing that the great series of games is degrading. If we could sum the gameplay in Far Cry 5 (without sniper rilfes) and plot in Far Cry 3, the result would be awesome. I wish Ubisoft will make the awesome sixth part. I will wait for it

Sure you can make it harder yourself by using only the bow and use stealth, but it is just not good game design, they should have made it much harder to get all the good weapons and vehicles.

    The story line is average at best, you only get to see the main bad guys/bosses in a couple of cutscenes that tell you the story and that's it.Ubisoft made a very big map with way to much repetitive missions, A lot of quest just repeat the same stuff over and over, kill something over here, get something over there, and the map is packed with enemies, you can't walk for 2 minutes or there are enemies coming for you, it's just to much.
    instead they should look at games like Yakuza 6, it has a way smaller map/world, but with lots of interesting stuff to do, and also a better way of telling the story.

    I should have known better this being a Far cry/Ubisoft game, but I guess for the casual gamer this game is awesome, and they just keep selling this junk. For gamers that expect a challenge a good story and good and fun gameplay, stay away from this game!!!!

    I'd like to start with some positives the game has before I get into the negatives....
    - The gun play is really polished, feels like an true tactical shooter when you are in combat.
    - The graphics are incredible, along with great sounds to compliment them. Now to start with the many negatives associated with this game... - The story is dry, you spend so little time with the characters

    Now to start with the many negatives associated with this game...
    - The story is dry, you spend so little time with the characters associated with the region you are currently in that when something happens to them you don't find yourself caring too much.
    - The combat gets repetitive after the first 5 hours because the game tosses you into fights that are extremely similar to past engagements and the buggy AI doesn't make for a tough challenge (Most enemies will run into your bullets or will take cover with their head poking out for you to shoot).
    - The railroad interactions with the antagonists are aggravating since you can't fight back (Jacob's region kidnaps you by hitting you with a sleeping dart that you can't see coming).
    - There is no crafting (which some people may like, but it is a dislike for me because it added to the game), very few guns to buy (only 2 viable AR's, the other AR's are not extremely effective, they are mostly there for "fun").
    - There are so many side quests and side activities thrown at you at once that you are overwhelmed with the amount of fights in front of you that you may feel like you don't know which direction to go.
    - Finally the ending makes you feel like you wasted all your time saving the people of Hope County no matter which decision you make at the end.
    Overall a pretty bad game considering what is on the market right now.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Ok, so I just started playing and admit I could only make it through to the first safe house with the bald man before I wanted to come start this review, I'll update it later but something already glaring in my mind I wanted to get off my chest. The graphics are pretty cool so far, and im enjoying myself..so I'll give it a 7/10 to begin with. However, as of right now the story already starts off making 0 sense. Small spoiler ahead...You start off going to arrest a guy with a federal warrant whose surrounded by a bunch of cultists with guns in a compound...you have a local sheriff with you that fills in the lead US marshal that the guy you're going to arrest is a cult leader, has heavy followers with guns, and pleads with you to reconsider as its going to be dangerous...LETS STOP RIGHT THERE. First off, you're a FEDERAL Marshal, therefor you have a FEDERAL boss that would be expecting you to check in at some point. When the local sheriff announces all these problems to you, a FEDERAL agent would def. call in backup to begin with. So the whole "nobodies coming to save you" and 4 people going in to arrest this cult leader makes 0 sense..the national guard/army/swat team would have been called in for backup. Story fails from beginning, so i'm taking off 3 ticks for that alone. I'll update this when/if I ever finish this already ridiculous story or anything else starts to deduct from my now 7/10 score. Thanks. **update** I've removed 2 bars (now 5/10) due to starting to see all the repetitive filler added for nothing other than some joker's idea of "content" or "fun". Also the enemy AI is pathetic...its literally a 0 challenge effort on the dev's part. This series needs a long break or wait 2-3 years in between and add worthwhile content. Expand

    3rd and FINALE update on my Far Cry 5 Review

    ///////////////////////////////////// Story //////////////////////////////////////////
    - **** endings
    - Dump Buddies
    - Lame weapon Variety
    - Death from Above takedown isn't working right , sometimes you get it , sometimes you fall like
    an idiot. how come Far Cry 3 (and 4) don't suffer from the same issue?

    But that's not what I'm mad at, it's the god damn enemy AI that has stupid IQ that doesn't make sense .... AT ALL.
    Yea, it's easy to defeat them bla bla, but when it comes to fully take outpost stealthily it's nearly impossible in this game:
    - Enemy AI seems to be aware if someone was killed by a thowing knife
    - Enemy AI has one ridicilous Eyesight when it comes to detecting you sneaking around.
    They spot you by looking half way to you, they seem to spot you from mere pixels. and some
    suppressors are not good enough from the Enemies high advance hearing skills.
    - They'll know if their buddy's being killed by a suppressored shotgun.
    - One enemy type (VIP CULT GUY) , seems to have for some reason the armor of heavy type,
    even thou he doesn't seem to wear anything remotaly to an ACTUAL ARMOR. he just takes a
    bullet to the head like Nothing
    - I know that I playing on Hard , but sometimes you get spotted after being glared for half a
    second. Why do Far Cry 4 and 3 have better AI than this ****
    That's just the start but I'll stop by saying that your Buddy AI , ironically , seems to be more dump than anyone, it takes them a LOOOONNGGG time to kill a simple target that is standing right next to them

    ///////////////////////////////////// Multiplayer and Map Editor (and coop) //////////////////////////////////////////
    Far Cry Arcade - ........ this is the worst FPS PvP online multiplayer ever created in gaming
    Why ?! well lets state the obvious issues:

    - No default maps / only custom maps created by players.
    This is a critical flaw. Your game has so many mechanics it can mixed and modded by your
    amazing Devs , but you would rather be lazy and let the users do the work for you ?
    Well sadly , if you're looking a BALANCED match in this game, then sadly you'll barely find any.
    The hardest part for me is that I can see the potential from this mode, buts it's wasted and used by a mix of global creators that can create **** matches and decent ones.
    COME ON UBISOFT !! You know you can create some good maps for any1 to have fun ! and by
    that I mean fun in a balanced match.
    - TTK and headshots just don't mix well - You can fire around 20-30 bullets and kill , but luckily shoot once in the head and BANG DROP DEAD ! This is a bad mix of Halo with CS:GO.
    I can't tell you the last time I wasn't killed by a headshot. add up the stupid Aim Down Sights
    feature and you got yourself an abomination of Halo + CS:GO + Cod. don't forget you can
    "stealth kill" if you 360 the enemy faster than he turning around.

    The only good thing about this game is the Coop/Solo feature to play Custom Levels.
    Play custom Outposts to take over , or anything else it's fun as hell.

    //////////////////////// OVERALL /////////////////////////////////////
    I give this game a 6/10
    They're A-LOT of issues I didn't mention , but I believe I pointed out the most critical ones to why this games just falls hard in the ground

    Shame that Far Cry 3 , is still the best.
    - Amazing Simple player and story mode
    - AI with Common sence !!!
    - A good multiplayer
    - A Fully established Coop mode with it's personal story. - Oh , I forgot about this, better weaponry !!!

    The characters can be great, you have a nearly clear line of good and bad. In a way the bad characters can be observed as also good, depends on how you look at it. There is always an explanation of why the characters are acting in the way they do. We have funny, serious, lovable and broken characters, a good mix.
    Graphics are good and the music is just astounding, even if there are not a lot of songs.

    All in all, I enjoyed the game up until the ending when I felt I did everything for nothing. That's why in my opinion it isn't serious enough. I still give 7 out of 10 because it is overall enjoyable.

And the ending sucks, it completely disregards any choice you've made before the ending and makes the rest of the game more or less irrelevant. And it's not exactly a good ending either. In fact, I disliked the ending so much I didn't even want to continue playing the game afterwards. Out of the 4 main antagonists the one I liked the most was faith, and her corner of the world was also the one I enjoyed the most. The dreams sequences with her, and also how the world became a hallucination, was quite fun so there was some potential here. But overall the story is a big, big let down, Far Cry 3 and Vaas is still the best Far Cry villain and story arc. Expand

    I also detested the cutscenes. Nearly everything you did generated the points that drove the meter forward to the next "kidnapping". You weren't even halfway done with an area and, boom, you were fighting the boss. You had no control over when it would happen, you couldn't run away, and there was no solid reason for why you woke up in one spot 10 miles away, except some twinkling lights, or an arrow to the leg. Frustrating.

    There were some great stories in each area, but the game moved so fast I didn't feel like I had a chance to enjoy them. You can still finish the quests after the finale, but trust me, you won't want to. I don't, the impetus isn't there without the threat of the boss and his minions hanging over me. Another testament to the "nothing matters" mantra of the game; you don't even want to play it again...

    Oh, and props to Ubisoft for making a antagonist that I so thoroughly despised that every time I saw his face I wanted him dead.

The endless kidnappings, cliches and making the player do stupid stuff basically feels like a big f*ck you to the players from the writers. Running around Montana is fun but then suddenly you get magically kidnapped so you can sit tied to a chair and listen to a baddie ramble on for 10 minutes. And that happens around 10 times in the game. I would alt+f4 when a kidnapping sequence was starting because I couldn't handle it.

    Like so many big budget games and films these days its all top show with nothing of consequence under the hood. On the upside it has heaps of eye candy. Environments, people and weapons are beautifully rendered. It offers a big sandpit of the world to explore too with lots of weapons to use and vehicles to interact with.

    You will probably find the first couple of hours of game play quite enjoyable but if you are anything like me deja vu will set in quite early on. This is a repetitive title where you do the same thing over and over again until you build up enough skills and weapons to take on the "boss" characters.

    This game would have actually benefited from being shorter and having a more linear story. I know a lot of people **** about this but unlike a lot of sword and sandal titles this one simply does not have the variety to take this approach and make it work.

    That said this could have been forgiven were it not for this games biggest shortcomings, it controls. Controls in Far Cry 5 once you stop beyond the basics of movement and weapons is truly truly awful. Some of the worst I have ever seen. It has a clumsy interface that attempts to remove the need for key binding but the interface you access in its place is so complex and hard to use it severely limits game play and is nothing short of an exercise in utter frustration. Its like they looked at Windows 8 and took its very worst interface elements and integrated them into this game.

    In summary this is a repetitive, trudging bore fest, made worse by piss poor horribly counter intuitive interface design and extended controls that no amount of eye candy can fix.

    3/10 from me.

    Add to that a couple of annoying bugs and the presence of Microtransactions, and I am really not impressed by the game. I was so certain I'd by the seasons pass after finishing the main story, but now I most certainly wont.

"Muh helpless civilians, bad guys blabla..." You have too many different people so you don't get (nor want) to know the story of them. The scenes I liked most were the ones including the main characters because I was curious about the reasons for the cult etc.
    Some of the good things of previous games like the map, the UI, the driving and weapon handling are still fine, but I haven't really noticed any meaningful improvements. In contrast to other Far Cry games I hated the missions. The little battles with bad guys on the roads or outposts were the best experience. The mechanics with plants, animals and skillpoints are still there but not as important gameplay elements like they used to be.
    The first hour of gameplay on the starting island was amazing but the rest was kind of lackluster. I didn't really feel any motivation to keep on playing except for the 60€ the game cost.
    Don't get me wrong, it still is a good game and you are going to have fun for sure, but it simply can't hold a candle to FC3, which, to this day, is still one of my favourite games and one of the few that I could really immerse myself into, sadly this storyline was rather superficial.

    First off the actual game play itself is not too bad, in fact I'd say it's on top with the top AAA games out today. That's unfortunately where I believe it ends for Far Cry 5.

That's unfortunately where I believe it ends for Far Cry 5. Following the success of Far Cry 3 and the memorable antagonist Ubisoft have basically made the series about the antagonists, so much so that in Far Cry 5 there is actually zero back story to the character you play, you're just known as "Rookie" or "Rook", the story is about the bad guys as usual not about you.

    The AI isn't perfect by a long shot, and in fact at times have proven to be more of a liability by getting in the way, starting a gun fight when we're supposed to be quiet and just generally getting in the way. There really isn't too much going into the back story of any of you're "companions" either, all you'll basically know is there names, a small piece about them and what the specials are.

    The enemy AI has eagle eyed vision, they literally can see you from a mile off at times way before you see them, considering you're the one approaching it's a bit unfair at times. Especially when the game decides to drop you smack in the middle of a bunch of mobs.

    Faith's area frustrated me greatly, i get the whole drug area but I should be concerned about being spotted, or killed by peggies not having to keep one eye open just in case a bear decides to spawn next to me, kinda spoilt it a little. Also some NPC's have bugged and not done what they were supposed to be doing (ie instead of using the radio at the tower I escorted him to he just stood there) so I've had to reload from the last checkpoint a number of times.

    Until you've liberated an area going along the road is just too much trouble, I once stent 20 minutes trying to get out of an area I've fast travelled to because there was several patrols and a bunch of planes all in that area.

    No actual online co-op aside from having people on your friends list? Kinda **** considering you can make your own maps, you have a pvp section and all to me that's a big piece missing. If they are planning on adding this then they need to do this now because in a months time we're going to be playing something else.

    At least it doesn't rape your CPU like Origin's does.

    Graphically speaking the game looks visually stunning and gives off a fresh new immersive vibe. Bugs and Glitches are present here and there but really not as bad as most of today's Early Access titles.

    While the storyline at times is pure sensationalised fiction it is saved by the authentic acting that allows for immersion to resurface. There are also some major flaws in logic (e.g. Where does everyone live?) in the environment and story but granted it's a 'Far Cry' game it's best to just ignore these. Side Activities become boring after the first 2-3 tries.

    Shooting and gameplay mechanisms aren't particularly bad or good. For precision shooting I find myself always using a mouse. For Vehicles (especially Helicopters or Planes) and Open World exploring I suggest a controller.

    It's important to note that Map design is particularly bad as you're always clustered between the next wild animal or enemy AI. This overpopulation does not fit at all with the geographical area and does get frustrating both for gameplay and immersion.

    I was also pretty sad to see the core mechanism of crafting removed and substituted by a simplistic perk design. Considered this iteration doesn't drift too far away in all other areas from its predecessors I would have liked them to keep the original system.

    Microtransactions are present in the game but serve more of a cheat engine than as aiding the core of the game.
    I found it pretty easy to ignore them and suggest others to do the same. Just download a trainer in the future or something because it's nothing more than cheating.

    Overall having played and enjoyed all iterations of Far Cry, I would tie this one with FC4 or Primal. It's a game you will most likely finish but hardly remember. This is mainly due to the fact that 'Far Cry' series for me has always felt like taking a 'vacation' in an adventurous place and unfortunately Montana does not possess enough intriguing or mystic attributes to keep me hooked. I also really despise the big purple truck. This ain't Saints Row c'mon.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I want to like this game. i really really do...all they had to do was give me a game that was fun and exciting and just had tons to do with a good story. Something missing from Farcry 3...4...and especially Primal.

    This game's world is big, entertaining, and lush. There's things happening all the time and it's easy to get lost in it. But then when you actually start gaining resistance points....you get railroaded into a "captured" mission. These stupid sequences interrupt everything you're trying for...going fishing? Too bad...wanna hide from the capture parties? Oh well....you can't defned yourself, you can't hide, and you can't escape them. It dampens your fun.

    The reall killer though is the story and how it ends. You've finally come face to face with Joseph Seed....it's time for the final confrontation

    A. You turn around and leave

    or

    B. You capture him...he blows up Hope county...and then takes you prisoner to start his cult again

    This left such a sour taste in my mouth....literally, everything I did was for NOTHING. There is no closure...all the torture, the brainwashing, the literal agony your character goes through....and you don't get ANY closure. Furthermore, after the credits....well, you can do all the side stuff in hope county...but there's no one left to shoot, all the bad guys are now gone....it becomes empty and boring.

    Again, I wanted to enjoy this game...I loved some of the characters (Hurk is still as awesome as ever) and some missions are just too insane for words (reclaiming the Widowmaker)....but the story just ruins all hype I had for this game...to the point where I regret getting it.

However, if you changed the difficulty to hard in the first minutes, it will take one or two bullets to kill you after the game drains your health on purpose. You will be constantly using med packs as enemies kill you instantly. My FC5 experience started off with a brief mission that I needed to try at least 8 times. After that, expect to be killed almost instantly by flamethrowers. No matter how well you did in FC4, expect to play with medium or easy difficulty. You won't be able to complete the missions with a bow this time. As soon as you shoot someone, enemies magically know where you are and will rush at you.

    There is no minimap, so you will most likely wander around with no real purpose, wondering what you're supposed to do. The enemy presence is absolutely insane. If you walk on the road, expect a truck full of enemies to drive by you every 10 seconds. I'm not having fun with FC5 at all. If you enjoyed FC4 like I did, keep playing FC4.

    Far Cry comes to the United States where guns are plenty but ammo is premium.

Where you get harassed by wild and household animals every 5 meters except when you take a hunting mission and they practically disappear from the landscape. The landscape is fabulous and helicopter sightseeing is fantastic, especially because plane controls are terrible with mouse and keyboard. There is no rain so you can wash your cars with sponges, bare chested bald bullet sponges easily eating multiple high caliber bullets to the head. You'll be tasked to take down a family, but they will take you down first, 9 times, while you fly through the sky or hide in a bunker nobody ever heard of. At the end you'll face a choice, an important choice, whether or not start the final main mission to witness a pointless and unsatisfactory ending.

    - Cars, helicopters
    - Chaotic firefights while chased by an airplane and wildlife at the same time

    - Repeatedly getting abducted from anywhere (seriously, when you see the prompts, just stand next to a road and wait)
    - Not enough and underpowered weapons (i.e., no Vector SMG?)
    - Unable to carry more of .50 cal ammo and bait (due to balance?)
    - Story is basic and weightless
    - Ending(s)

    Verdict: 7/10 - buy if you never played Far Cry before, wait otherwise (for patches and all-in-one release).

    FC5 is actually worse than FC Primal and FC4.

    Pros:
    + The game has been optimized really well on PC.
    + Letting you choose character's gender.

    Cons:
    - Too many glitches.
    - Poor background music, animals, outpost, mission and story.
    - The game has smallest map in FC series.

    In conclusion, FC5 doesn't make me feel satisfied. Way worse than AC Origin.

    But the theme just doesnt do it for me.
    The pace of this game is slow and doesnt keep me interested.

    I would be singing this games praise but for a few things that have turned an otherwise amazing experience completely sour. Far Cry 5 could have and should been the best of the far cry games so far but due to either sloppy and very lazy writing or horrible production it's the worst. The premise of the story is excellent but the execution of it is atrocious. I'll try very hard not to include spoilers but suffice it to say they make the protagonist and the antagonist not only impotent but stupid as well. I have never seen a story either so lazily written or so horribly rushed. It makes no logical sense. The story pins the protagonist into a no win scenario time and time again, giving the antagonist opportunity after opportunity to end the conflict. Once or twice would have been fine but it gets tedious and annoying after 20 times. Do the antagonists act on those opportunities? Take a guess. To add insult to injury it resorts to the use of deus ex machina to get him out. It reeks of rushed and cut story or amateurish writing.

    The game play is standard far cry albeit without the towers. The graphics are beautiful and the setting is amazing. The music is wonderful and probably the best part of the game. All of these things add up to what should have been the best game of 2018, but with the no win scenarios every 20 minutes it ruins it.

    TL;DR: They botched this either due to bad writers or a moronic production team. If you don't care about the story making no logical sense this is a great game.

    I think the Far Cry 5 is decent game but after playing it for while it starts to get rather tedious since i cannot help but to notice similiar types of setups from previous far cry games.

    Far Cry 5 has new world, new main quest and side quests and the world feels quite lively at times now that things are happening around you all the time.

    But if you are familiar with the francise you pretty much have understanding what you are gonna have to do in this game, same old same old. There still is tower climing involved, but this time they are not there for sakes of scanning the map, but for side quest persey.

    Biggest complaint with Ubisoft this time around is that i've ordered mondo edition package for pc which comes with a vinyl which was pretty cool. But there was no option for a physical copy for the pc orders, so the mondo box for pc came with a vinybox (Vinyl inside) and a empty steelbox (no map, manual or cd inside). It seems though i didnt get my moneys worth from this order.

    What kind of practice is this? If everything goes towards digital, do you just send empty collector boxes overseas!?

    Aint gonna buy from Ubisoft after this, most games are average.

    Sadly worst Far Cry experience till date. The story is completely passable, the endings are incredibly disappointing. The whole experience feel like a massive waste of time.

There is no character development, there are barely any characters to speak of. All people are bland stereotype goodies/baddies. The Father is dull as heck. The gameplay was also horrible. They've removed the towers but instead the game is choped in to a million pieces almost completely disconnected. The game says everyone will get a unique experience but that's incredibly poorly realized. They've added a whole conditioning mechanism which is an incredibly poor excuse to drive the game forwards. You are messing around, flying, driving, sometimes even in the middle of a mission and the game goes "Well, it's time to cut to black" And you are literally instantly teleported to where you need to be to progress the story. And that happens all the fin time. You just start to enjoy what you are doing and the game teleports you somewhere on a seemingly random place. All characters including you teleport around and do what the story needs them to do regardless of previous occurrences or positioning. They are captured seconds after you've rescued and secured them in a river of blood. It's a nonsensical progression that has been cheeply disguised under something im sure they thing incredibly clever: Drugs and mind conditioning. But thats a game. It's supposed to be a fun joy ride and not "Hyh" moment every time a cut scene starts. Additionally the AI is the worst imaginable, and the game relies overly much on it to progress on some missions. I've failed missions multiple times just because lets say an AI decides to land a chopper on the water and destroys a mission important vehicle. What follows is a reset. The open design now feels restricted. With old Far Cry games most boarders felt natural. It was rare for the game to stop you forcefully and here happens all the time if you move few centimeters away from the bound of the map or the mission to improvise. I love Far Cry 2, 3 and 4. I find them exceptional games. Far Cry Primal is ok, nothing much to rave about. But this game disappointed me so badly. And the progression .... because they know people don't like to do all activities the game is like this time you don't gain experience but we will force you to fish and try to do chain takedowns with the retarded AI or yeah and to use the AI partners if you with to get points. And i can't count the times how many times an partner AI sits face to face with an enemy watching him stupidly and the next second turns around and starts shooting in my position and blowing a near by barrel pretty much killing me instantly, or a vehicle, or just shoots to the bad guys through me. Piece of advice use the animals, they don't drive and are bloody killing machines. I've taken outposts sitting behind the bush and the bear slaughtering everything in sight. So the freedom is disguised with cheap plot devices. The AI is shoved in your face but it's terrible. The story is boring. The setting is bland (no offense fake Montana), and lets not forget OP weapons, i played with 1 sniper and one Rifle from start to end. and the end was running in the middle of firefights shooting from the hip mowing down baddies.

Especially when game smashes you in the face with 30 minutes non-stop cutscene at the very start, i think i will need anger management therapy after this game.

    Now the thing other people will praise you about: the combat. **** lies, it is sub-par, i repeat subpar. I have played 15+ year old fps games that felt better when shooting something. You just dont feel the reaction and consequence of firing, its weak. Enemy AI is just **** taking cover etc has absolutely has no effect on how often enemy hits you. They just periodically damage you, whether you only show a pinky or just stand still like a cabbage on a field. Combat is so horribly made, there is literally no skill involved. Being an average shooter will be only a little different than being a great shot.

    There is only 1 area where game is good, that is as usual with AAA titles, the graphics. And thats how these companies lure you, in order to con you into thinking this is a beautiful great game. And it is beautiful looking, but also empty and meaningless. Save your dollars, buy some other game. Noone should play this crap. I am facepalming so hard, after playing Doom this game feels so, so bad.

    Maybe the only positive things about the game is that it looks amazing and the voice acting is very good.
    The non-linear story makes everything seem so generic and repetitive and the flow of things on each region identical to one another. Some parts of the story are straight out of science fiction books and the best way Ubisoft knows how to raise the difficulty is to make enemies bullet sponges and throw any common sense out of the window. The game's ending goes WTF all the way and makes no sense at all. Again they defy logic just for that unexpected factor.
    Borrow this games from a friend, rent it or wait for a big sale but don't waste your money on the full price.

    While I did not encounter game breaking bugs there were quite a few like car hitting dead wolf and flying into the air, a very strange experience with a plane twerking in the air, teleporting instantly on the ground than taking off directly with no speed gain required, mission objective not being completed properly.
    In the beginning I had on average 55 FPS in 4K but the game kept complaining to update my graphics drivers. After the update it dropped 15 fps in 4K to 40 on average, even less and I was forced to play in 1080p.

    Far Cry 5 is a nice and funny FPS that you’ll enjoy most in co-op. The well-proven concept would deserve a rejuvenation and adding a story that is adequate to the rest of the game. [Issue#285]

    This fresh take on the Far Cry franchise is clearly visible content-wise, but a tad more discrete on the style. If you're not bothered by the slightly repetitive formula, you'll enjoy the many strengths of this episode.

    Far Cry 5 doesn’t propel the series forward — it just refines all of its elements and relegates the infamous towers to the dustbin of history. So if you‘re allergic to open worlds from Ubisoft, don’t say I didn’t warn you. But if you’re eager to meet new wacky characters, complete dozens of missions and enjoy the sights, welcome to Hope County, sinners!
