The title features actor Giancarlo Esposito (“Better Call Saul,” “The Boys,” “The Mandalorian”) as President Anton Castillo, the violent leader who grips the island of Yara with an iron fist, promising a return to its former glory. With an arsenal of weapons and allies at your back, you’ll take on Castillo’s regime and fight for the future of Yara. As Dani Rojas (playable as a female or male character), you will help stoke the fires of revolution through guerrilla warfare across the island of Yara, from verdant jungles to the urban streets of the capital city, Esperanza. You’ll use a powerful array of weapons and vehicles, and build a network of allies to fight alongside you, including Fangs for Hire like Chorizo, the dangerously distracting wiener dog. As President Castillo prepares his son Diego, played by Anthony Gonzalez (“Coco”), to succeed him, you will do all you can to ensure his plans don’t come to fruition. [Ubisoft] Expand

    Far Cry 6 is a very expansive first person shooter with a compelling story, full of entertaining things to do and missions to accomplish. The enemies are a little too predictable but the gameplay is always fun, with tons of weapons to find and customize, and the incredible “pets” you can bring with you are just the cherry on top. Graphics and sound are high quality and very immersive.

    Far Cry 6 is the next iteration of the Far Cry universe, and you can see some of the blending from other Ubisoft properties here. While the formula may be a little more visible than we’d like, and the AI could use a shot in the arm, what is here is a thrill ride adventure sure to give fans of the franchise exactly what they are looking for.

    It all adds up to make Far Cry 6 a game that is obviously flawed and obviously similar to other Far Cry games before it, but has such a strong spirit that it ends up being memorable regardless. Far Cry 6 is a compelling reminder that video games can be so silly and that sometimes that's exactly what they need to be in order to be effectively cathartic. Yet in spite of that silliness, the game actually isn’t shy about having something to say. Here is a game that is many, many things all at once, but it also seems to understand itself so well.

    Far Cry 6 is the typical more of the same that adds nothing new to the formula. The hypertrophic open world with a plethora of missions doesn't match with standards of high quality: the product fails to renew a series that doesn't know how to look forward.

    Yara is super lush and wonderful to explore, but the story and main villain are predictable.

    If you have no prior experience with the franchise, Far Cry 6 is a game that can definitely be fun to play. If you're one of the series' devotees, you'll spot stagnation and repetitiveness in its mechanics from a mile away, to the point where finishing it at 100% is a real feat. Therefore, if you know what it's all about and haven't had your fill yet, then Far Cry 6 is for you. If you think you'll cry out "enough" if you see one more fortress, then leave it alone.

    Through an oversimplification of systems compared to previous entries in the franchise, everything in Far Cry 6 feels too safe…There isn’t any challenge to the combat, the exploration is mindless and the story that unfolds is completely unsatisfying.

    Best game ever. I love the graphics, story and main female protagonist. It's perfect. This and Far Cry 5 is the best in franchise!

Great characters, both villains and protagonistsIt’s actually an 8.5 out of 10 and the reason why I love it so much is pretty obvious. Great characters, both villains and protagonists (including dani) Awesome weapons and combat. My favorite supremo is the gladiator. (It gives you a huge health boost and makes you swing your machete like a maniac). Speaking of melee, I’m a little disappointed there aren’t any actual melee weapons, however the brutal machete animations make up for it, they’re better than battlefield animations and depend on you surroundings. The pets are cool and armed gameplay variety. Some of the weapons feel unbalanced unlike far cry 5 but they’re all useable still. The game feels a little boring the first 1-2 hours. My last complaint is the visual glitches, the game gets really blurry, hopefully this gets patched. Play this game! Expand

    A really solid game but I still prefer far cry 5, its ultimately brought down by all the downgrades and changes it has made to the formula.

Performance on PC for me wasn’t any issue mostly with the exception of a game crash once in a great while (several hours)
    Running 11900K with a 3090 at 4K max settings without issues. Few collision problems where the companion gets trapped under a vehicle but that’s about it.

    The game itself was cleverly marketed using a brilliant actor to play the main antagonist based on his role in Breaking Bad. He does play an evil character well. Beyond that it was all hype just as Cyberpunk was. Ultimately it only mashes the disappointment that much more with this game.

    This felt like a complete rework of FC5 with different names and ruined with a poor unbelievable storyline. The entire game is nothing more than a left wing SJW/Woke disaster. It’s almost like they designed and wrote this game to cater to the SJW LGBTQ population and completely making every aspect of the game completely out of touch with reality. The revolution is a group of Trans LGBTQ club goers.
    The Army is more female soldiers than male making it that much more unrealistic to top it all off. This is a leftwing feminist, socialist and LGBTQ game start to finish and it really confirms that no company or franchise is safe from the pressures of the woke community. We truly live in strange times and society is becoming so overwhelmed by a minority group that is hellbent on corrupting everything to comply with a lifestyle. Television is ruined by it and now the game industry is fast becoming ruined by it as well.

    Ubisoft, you can do far better.

    Являюсь огромным поклонником Far Cry 3, так как там был прорывной геймплей для своего времени и достойный сюжет с шикарными персонажами. FarЯвляюсь огромным поклонником Far Cry 3, так как там был прорывной геймплей для своего времени и достойный сюжет с шикарными персонажами. Far cry 4 - паразитирование на успехе третьей части, но так как кор геймплея был сохранён - на половину прохождения сил хватило. Far Cry 5, как бы это не было забавно, но я эту часть люблю наверное даже больше чем третью, так как несмотря на полную сценарную импотенцию сценаристов, в эту игру было невероятно весело играть. Да, был донат(Ubisoft же, кмон), были спорные моменты, НО, когда ты расщитав баллистическую траекторию пули, вышибаешь бронебойным патроном пилота из кабины летящего самолёта или вертолёта - то все минусы просто теряются, в море шизонутого фана, психодел драйва и чувства что ты главный псих в этой психушке.
    Что же я могу сказать о Far Cry 6... по человечески обидно. Вот честно. Даже если не брать в расчёт сюжет (я не знаю, что за олигофрены сидят и пишут сценарий на игры Ubisoft, но я надеюсь что их карьера закончится быстро и безславно), так испоганить геймплей - это надо постараться. Такое чуство, как будто Юбики уволили всех старожилов, наняли на их место школьников с нулевым опытом в геймдеве, но которые являются максимально политически правильными и корректными, и просто отдали игру им на растерзание. Как ещё можно оправдать тут ужас, вот что привратилась игра? Что с музыкой? Что с графикой? Что с геймплеем? Чего только стоит рекламная компания которая строилась блин на петухе? И все так акцентировали на этом петухе(кстати без иронии, это единсвенные прописанный персонаж игры) внимание. В общем, свою боль я выплеснул, играть в этот кусок спагетти кода я настоятельно не рекомендую. Ах да, единственное за что я могу поставить 1 бал вместо 0 , так что то, что хотя бы стрельбу не испортили.

    The characters are just unbelievable and boring, a 18 year old red headed vegan as the best guerilla?

Transsexuals' and the likes, seriously.....
    Lots of bugs, could've used another year of sorting out, I mean the map keeps disappearing and the game just crashed prompting me to write this review. Honestly creepy the direction of these developers and their "inclusivity"
