    Far Cry 5 is hands down the best yet for the series, and may be the best Ubisoft title ever.

    Far Cry 5 is the best Far Cry to date. The great additions and refinements made to the franchise are fantastic. Along with the inclusion of Far Cry Arcade, which extends your play time, Far Cry 5 is the ultimate open-world first person shooter.

    I've always enjoyed playing Far Cry games, but Far Cry 5 is probably my favorite. It has a few flaws and some missed opportunities, but overall it takes the Far Cry formula that's worked in the past and improves upon it. If you've never really enjoyed Far Cry games in the past, then those improvements may not be enough to change your mind about the game. However, anyone who's a Far Cry fan, or anyone who has yet to experience a Far Cry game will probably really enjoy their time in Montana.

    Far Cry 5 is a massive game with tons of content and Far Cry Arcade has the potential to keep the game fresh and exciting for months to come. In the end, Far Cry 5 didn't make the most out of its rural setting and didn't innovate much on the typical Far Cry gameplay formula although it still ranks as one of the best games in the series.

    Off the beaten track, Far Cry 5 is strongly reminiscent of its predecessors. If you have no problem with ticking off small tasks in an Open World shooter, you can blow off steam with sufficient weapons, tools and vehicles. But much more was expected from the now fifth Far Cry installment.

    Neither toothless nor incendiary, Far Cry 5 does its setting justice but colours within the lines. [May 2018, p.60]

    Divorce it from its narrative and Far Cry 5‘s biggest overall problem is just how little mechanical innovation separates the game from Far Cry 4.

    The story sucks, the characters and acting suck, and you can see that this is by far the least worked on far cry. The developers didn't careThe story sucks, the characters and acting suck, and you can see that this is by far the least worked on far cry. The developers didn't care about this game like they did to the previous far cry's. The gameplay however is GREAT and so is the world. Only if the story was better and if the developers actually tried.
    PS: This is the most repayable far cry yet. So I have to give it extra points.

    Far Cry 5 est d'un ennui remarquable.
    Le jeu ressemble ressemble énormément à ses prédécesseur, et pourtant ne réussi pas à me captiver.

    Le jeu ressemble ressemble énormément à ses prédécesseur, et pourtant ne réussi pas à me captiver.

    Parce qu'il n'apporte rien de neuf, parce qu'il n'y rien de vraiment passionnant dans le scénario, parce qu'on se fiche des enjeux, parce qu'il est vide et creux.

    Bref, c'est un raté.
