    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.

Stunning graphics, incredible gameplay (it never felt so good to shoot people and ride vehicles!) and a very interesting story with charismatic characters.

    After 14 into this game. It seems like a step forward and a step backwards in the far cry series.

    Positive: The graphics are very done
    After 14 into this game. It seems like a step forward and a step backwards in the far cry series.

    Positive: The graphics are very done
    huge map to explore
    semi interesting story

    Negative: The environment is dead, trees don't move when there's an explosion or when you fly a helicopter near them like they did in fry cry 4. when you shoot at the trees? nothing happens.

    There's TOO MUCH ACTION!! enemies come left and right out of nowhere. this is really annoying and it doesn't seem real. its just over the top!

    The game needs to be more polished.

    the graphics are impressive, the gameplay has been improved and it has millions of small details BUT the game is VERY boring, blandthe graphics are impressive, the gameplay has been improved and it has millions of small details BUT the game is VERY boring, bland characters, bad story and bad endings.

    a pity because the idea of ​​fighting a religious sect saba for a lot but it has been nothing, as it is possible that in FC3 devoted more than 80 hours in the story mode, in FC4 the same but in FC5 I just wanted to finish the game and ya, ahy stays in the box to not play again until the DLC (I bought them for idiot)

    It's more of the same, FC5 used the same formula of FC4 and it turns very repetitive during the game. If want to play far cry, play the fourth one.

    Ubisoft makes lots of boring games. But this must be the most boring game ever. #1 the protagonist is a silent mute and everyone keeps talkingUbisoft makes lots of boring games. But this must be the most boring game ever. #1 the protagonist is a silent mute and everyone keeps talking to him like he/she can talk. And secondly the barely show the antagonist. So that means this game has no protagonist and antagonist. The gun combat is go weak. The recoil on the assault rifle they give you is way too much. You wouldn't even know if someone is dead. And you can't drive in peace without anyone killing u. No radar or mini map. So you wouldn't even know if you are doing a main mission or side missions. Cuz the game is to complex and confusing Expand
