    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. Finally, Montana is so beautiful I can't believe it. 10/10 for me. Expand

    I honestly loved this game, the ending is the only one that made my jaw literally drop. I'm actually replaying it for the 3rd or 4th time.

The atmosphere and the large open world which you can explore from the off is highly detailed with varied terrains.

    The main story line has four protagonists for you to deal with and each provide a varied amount of missions for you to get your teeth into. While completing missions you will be intermittently sort out and drugged so you can meet one of the main baddie characters and complete unique missions.

    This happens several times with each of the three protagonists who control a specific area and does slightly affect the continuity of the game play and to some people may seem like an annoyance. As you take over various buildings and settlements you will get warning the enemy is looking for you.

    There are as always lots of weapons to get to grips with to help deal with the worlds foes and you also get to drive and fly around in a range of vehicles. I particularly liked how the helicopters functioned and you also get to drive around in a special truck which is obtained during a mission.

    Overall I thoroughly enjoy playing Far Cry 5 though i do think the final mission is particularly difficult and it took me several tries to complete which may annoy some people also. This for me tarnished the game slightly hence the 9 out of 10.

The concept of having a "buddy" on call gives you limitless options to sneak up on people with animals, or rain fire from above while you watch on a hill.
    The storyline is pretty thin, you will get tired of all the talking and pontificating. There are moments where you must go fishing to complete a quest. OK, this signals they have run out of ideas.
    Lame ending. IMO FC4 was a better game.

    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.
