    Vaas: Insanity is an excellent first DLC for Far Cry 6. The look into the chaos of Vaas’ mind is a really interesting one, and the gameplay loop is as intriguing as it is challenging. It can be fun solo or with friends, and is absolutely worth taking the time to check out.

    Far Cry 6 Vaas: Insanity sees Ubisoft tackle the roguelike genre, allowing players to play as the iconic villain in a great expansion.

    This is a great starting point to the trio of DLCs Far Cry 6 is about to get. While Far Cry 6 focused on improving on an old format, Far Cry 3 managed to give us something refreshing.

    Far Cry 6 Vaas: Insanity provides a deeper and more nuanced look at a troubled character. Unfortunately, it has a fairly restrictive rogue-lite system if you're pressed for time. Worse, there's not a lot to look forward to after your initial clear.

    We must recognize the first great DLC of Far Cry 6 the effort to offer something different, and from the eyes of one of its most remembered villains. The roguelite mechanics fit well, although it may not appeal to everyone due to the repetition and difficulty. Its small world and little variety of situations make it feel like a missed opportunity.

    The roguelite experiment is appreciable because it offers a demanding and satisfying challenge. Unfortunately, the lack of general variety and the poor in-depth narrative component are two significant burdens, and they are not the only ones.

    At the very least, Vaas: Insanity succeeds more than Far Cry 6 proper at moving the franchise forward. By the same token, sanding off the hard edges of a character conceived in a much different world could sever the last few connections to Far Cry's glorious past. The DLC's roguelike structure feels novel but incomplete, another ultimately unsuccessful attempt at mixing things up after Far Cry: New Dawn's RPG elements and Far Cry 5's DLC adventures into new genres. If Ubisoft can do a better job of recapturing the spirit of its other two antagonists in the rest of Far Cry 6's season pass (or in the recently rumored Vaas film project) franchise fans may finally have something to celebrate in 2021.

You can rush through this DLC rogue-lite or you can complete it and savour the moment. The gun-play is tight and the enemy AI flanks well and can present a challenge. I needed to upgrade my pistol skillz quite a bit, but that was a nice challenge. Weapons are quite limited and this moved me away from my usual loadout, so it was fresh and new.
    It's a very well crafted map, visually impressive, lots of Z-axis.
    I had a few quibbles with VAAS's characterisation. He is a bit repetitive, ugly, twisted, unimaginative. I liked the original VAAS more. But I didn't come for the story. I came for challenging game-play. And anyway, it all looked very pretty.

It's Ubisoft's first try at a rouge-like and they did an ok job. Pretty ok overall but don't buy it if you are not deeply into VAAS as a character Expand

It was created by brainless and crooked madmen. Expand
