    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.

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.

Let's start off by saying without a doubt the graphics are amazing, visuals are unreal and playing on a 4KTV makes it so much better. Physics are not bad but it needs work, when you light a forest on fire there should be ashes but instead it just turns black like wtf? AI is unbelievably stupid in this game. Story missions are not too bad but it does get repetitive, I thought every section would be different but overall you're doing the same thing over and over.

    Having companions made it more entertaining and easier, weapons and customization are great although would be nicer if there were more weapons. Now let's talk about the ending which ultimately ruined the experience for me, I am not gonna spoil it but let's just say it is perhaps the worst ending I have seen in a long time.

    Overall this is a game where you will end up spending a lot of hours and ultimately having fun, it's not a perfect game but it is was way better than Far Cry 4 (which I stopped playing after a few days due to how boring it was)

    This game feels unfinished and everything about it feels rushed and not thought out and executed well. The combat ai is worse than any recentThis game feels unfinished and everything about it feels rushed and not thought out and executed well. The combat ai is worse than any recent shooter, the driving sucks (the cars keep making a gear change sound forever even though you are going the same speed lol) which is standard for farcry, but this is 2018 they need to fix it. Most importantly though you don't feel like there is any reason to keep playing, the game doesn't give you reasons like I previous games such as hunt X to unlock a weapon, or take X amount of bases to unlock a weapon, everything is available right from the start of you have enough cash or spend real money on silver bars like a loser. I gave up on the game about halfway through, as I already had all the strongest weapons and the story sucks so no point to keep playing. Expand

    Bland, filled with micro transactions, over the top with enimes chasing you, story is boring and is to free to attract you.
