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

    Arguably the best Far Cry to date, Far Cry 6 maximizes PS5 capability while delivering a terrific experience. New and old Far Cry players shouldn't miss this one.

    A huge, exciting world packed with entertaining content against the backdrop of a mostly-accomplished story of charismatic revolutionaries makes this a return to fine form for the franchise. Ubisoft has married inspired design with trademark gameplay to great effect. This is the best Far Cry yet.

    At its core, Far Cry 6 both shines and suffers from many of the same strengths and weaknesses that have characterized the last few entries in the franchise. On one hand, it has incredibly engaging action and an open world begging to be used creatively. On the other, it has repetitive and sometimes rote mission design, with disconcerting tonal shifts that seat inconceivable brutality and violence at the same table with silly, absurd humor that feels at best disrespectful, and at worst, wildly inappropriate. What finally elevates Far Cry 6 is a better-than-average cast, and a more comprehensible and grounded story that is set in one of the most lavish and beautiful environments ever created for a game. It’s fascinating, flawed, and full of contradictions. It’s a Far Cry game.

    Far Cry 6 tries to be something new but falls short on all ideas. The Supremo backpack and the design of Yara are on point, but you will be playing the same game you’ve been playing for years now when you scratch beneath the skin of this one. If you love the Far Cry series, you will love 6, but don’t expect anything new or revolutionary during your gameplay.

    Far Cry 6 makes some meaningful narrative improvements, helped by a fantastic performance by Esposito. However, repetitive and familiar gameplay, combined with a restrictive progression system, means changes are needed in the future if Ubisoft wants the series to continue.

    A truly huge game that adds more and more content without really fundamentally changing anything. It’s not a very good shooter but it will successfully distract you with countless relatively fun activities.

    If you’re interested in another Far Cry game that does the Far Cry stuff the way it’s been doing it for 10 years, you’ll probably have a good time, but if you’ve already hit your limit with this kind of game, Far Cry 6 is the ne plus ultra of why open-world game design is so badly in need of a revolution.

Giancarlo Esposito is so vulnerable and human as Anton Castillo. I dare say he has topped Vaas. The gameplay takes a while to truly shine its new innovations and does require attention to making a build to get the most out of it. The story is decent to bad sometimes. Most characters are kind of annoying. But playing to flesh out Diego and Anton is very worth it. Farcry 6 is the type of game that you can relax and have a drink to. Things do get intense once you finish your first area and enemies have variety unlike in 5. Expand

    This is one of my most favorite game series of all time and they have consistently made it worse with every installment. They have nerfedThis is one of my most favorite game series of all time and they have consistently made it worse with every installment. They have nerfed climbing so some object the same height as me cannot be climbed which is so dumb I don't even understand it. They took out the skill tree, THEY TOOK OUT THE SKILL TREE, yeah why, who can say. They only difficulty to chose from is story mode or action mode so get ready for very easy or easy, yup almost 0 challenge. You get locked in 3rd person mode in camps for some unknown reason and I spend majority of my time collecting crap to upgrade camps cause everyone loves settlement building. To upgrade guns you need scrap and the like which is not unusual but you need gunpowder for everything and for being in a country in the midst of a civil war it sure is hard to find it more than 1 at a time. The weapons slots have been taken down to even less than the last game and I can't throw shovels like spears anymore which was just fun. Every single NPC that is supposed to be an "ally" is a huge douche and i hate them all, i legitimately would change sides and join the enemies if i could just to kill these ungrateful pricks. Also you have clothing options now but not just for cosmetics but for dealing with poison, fire, and regular enemy gunfire but nothing is all reaching so you have to change your outfit way too freaking often. I could honestly go on and on about everything wrong with this game but I would rather not do that so I will point out some good points.

    It is fun to shoot people it handles like a far cry so nothing new there. The voice acting is fantastic and the graphics are pretty good (something that honestly doesn't bother me, if a game is good enough mechanically it could look like 8 bit for all i care). They have a lot of weapons to choose from but almost too many that i could easily become a con for many people. Giancarlo Esposito is amazing so that really helps me trudge through this swamp of disappointment just to see him do his monologues. The animal companions are pretty cool but they had that in 5 so... yeah, and Chorizo (the dog) is so freaking cute i could just spend the whole game running errands for him. I also really like that the main character has a voice for both genders unlike 5 which is like one of the only steps forward.

    If i could get a refund i would and that really upsets me to say cause i really wanted to like this game to the point where i was lying to myself and trying to force myself to like it. Like i said this series is one of my all time favorite and they just tried to do something slightly different and ended up really fumbling it. Supposedly Ubisoft has 7 will go in a completely new direction so here's hoping they get it right. Though this review is the second day of it release and we probably wont see 7 for like 3 or 4 years. Ugh I cannot express how disappointed I am and how many steps backwards they took while making this game. THEY TOO THE EFFING SKILL TREE OUT, WHY?!?!?!?!?!?

    I'm going to rip this title apart. I'm very dissatisfied and even more dissatisfied with Ubisofts return policy. So this is going to be moreI'm going to rip this title apart. I'm very dissatisfied and even more dissatisfied with Ubisofts return policy. So this is going to be more about how much I hate the changes they made and less about Ubisoft but lets get started. For starters the aiming down the sights doesn't feel right in this game. There is so much emphasis on looking at your cool gun that it now envelopes a larger part of the screen as it's centered much higher. I don't like this because it inhibits my ability to see a larger view while moving. I've even missed wild animals in the game for multiple hits because I couldn't see them. The next is the enemies. I have had enemies take 4-5 rounds to the head. WHAT?! That's actually not how it works, armor or not. You take five big rounds to the head you have been dead. WHAT?! The next is the way the game plays. It has not been optimized at all! They didn't put it on Steam and then gave a big **** you when you realized that the game is bugged and has multiple performance issues. By the way, if you even downloaded it they won't let you return it. I got the runaround for about 10 minutes of trying to return the game.

    The area is boring and not exciting whatsoever, and I feel like the game was missing a certain flare that I really enjoyed in 5. Honestly, I played the hell out of 3 and loved it so much. I played 5 and loved it so much. But the big thing that really grinds my gears and ruins my time are the weapons. Where is the realism? Like even relatively speaking. I made a silencer out of a bottle and some plastic and other materials. Huh?! That felt stupid in my opinion. When I played 5 I felt like a ****ing professional. I can set up my load outs, and roll with the items that fit my play style. You cannot do this in Far Cry 6. If your best weapon is a pistol, well guess what your using a pistol. Oh, you don't like that? Too ****ing bad! You have a sniper rifle but it takes 5 head shots to "Down" an enemy, while your pistol can do it in 1. This makes no sense and it goes right along with the fact that they added an armor system and an exploitative ammo vulnerability system. It doesn't make sense, it's stupid. I don't like this! If you have fun with this kind of thing that's cool, but it feels to me almost like an overarching Pokemon type weakness system that was put in the game that really doesn't need to be there at all. I wish they would get rid of it. It doesn't feel right. The controls are also jacked as I found my character getting stuck on NPC's, objects and "dead body's". I got killed more times because I glitched onto a dead body and couldn't move while out in the open. It wasn't fun.

    If you have a PC and plan to buy it on PC please reconsider. It doesn't play very well on PC unless you have some kind of amazing rig with a top tier graphics card. Which by the way if you all are aware is pretty unrealistic with the current market. The frame rate drops suck and make it exceedingly hard to enjoy the game.

    The story is boring to me. I sometimes enjoy parts of it, but the BL2 introduction of characters felt out of place for me, and almost made me laugh at the game. "Is this a joke?" I thought to myself. This games story in general is pretty bunko, and I have never felt so disconnected from a Far Cry story ever. I actually don't like the 3rd person in towns, and I don't like that the main character has his own story. I have always enjoyed the immersion of feeling like I am this unstoppable badass.

    At the end of the day it's another Far Cry game that is trying really hard to be reminiscent of the classic Far Cry's but fails at it by being a mediocre **** show that I really can't endorse whatsoever. The story is as a gimmick that fails to keep my attention with a main character that I don't relate too. The weapons system is annoying at best and make it impossible to play my style. The graphics optimization on PC is terrible. I've played a lot of the Far Cry games but this is probably the most disliked one that I have played so far. My entire opinion is my own and I understand that it won't be popular, but it is what it is because I came into this excited to enjoy my own adventure and between a game that missed it's mark with me and Ubisoft being unwilling to provide me with any type of refund after not having on the Steam market has been a travesty for me. I am already aware that a lot of people do like this game, and I think that's great! But this game just isn't for me, and I would consider this to be a great failure if you like Far Cry games the way I do. It felt like the death of something I love.
