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.

    This Far Cry is the best since the third opus - generous, fun to play, with beautiful writing and novelties, including the handcrafted weapons and the Supremos that make the gameplay extremely enjoyable. The atmosphere is perfect for an exotic journey that offers mystery, a good dose of madness and action. Plus with top notch casting. True pure Far Cry as we like it.

    Far Cry 6 is the most fun I've had in a Far Cry game for years, but it won't be for everyone. If you've grown tired of the gameplay loops of the Far Cry titles of recent times, Far Cry 6 doesn't make much of an effort to change that up. However, if the thrill of carnage and combat still appeals, it's crazy, chaotic, and an absolute blast.
  4. 80
    Colourful and brutal, funny and horrifying, Far Cry 6 is the distilled essence of its franchise, as well as a richer and more coherent experience than recent outings.

    If Far Cry 3 was the last game you really got into, or the modern Far Cry formula is your meaty open-world experience of choice that somehow never loses its potency, you’ll find a lot of comfort in Far Cry 6. Otherwise, get to it when you get to it, and try not to burn out.

    Whoever fell in love with Far Cry 5 (and especially New Dawn) will fall in love with Far Cry 6. The game offers more of the same - dozens of hours of pure run'n'gun fun in a giant open-world that will last for months. If you want to relax after a hard day, get the game. If you want anything more, stay away from it.

    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.

    A lot of the negative reviews for this game are like someone that doesn't like chicken wings reviewing chicken wings. These wings taste the same as the last wings. Some people just like wings.

    Very disappointing. It's just reskin of Far Cry 3. Hundreds of same missions over and over, really bad AI, which makes game dull, graphicsVery disappointing. It's just reskin of Far Cry 3. Hundreds of same missions over and over, really bad AI, which makes game dull, graphics looks like downgraded compared to trailers. They showed the city in game as enormous but there is nothing special about it. Weapon upgrades are not look like innovator. It's just different parts of same feature, for instance suppressors. The protagonist does not have any depth, the villain is as usual as in previous Far Cry games. Ubisoft should've already discontinued this game series, either put some things unfamiliar and try new things or put an end to it. It's so repetitive. Expand

    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.

    Soulless. I genuinely do not understand how this game avoided getting panned by critics, but what do you expect from Ubisoft? Another gameSoulless. I genuinely do not understand how this game avoided getting panned by critics, but what do you expect from Ubisoft? Another game with a nonsensical story, bland open world, zero innovation, and outright removal of fun mechanics to meet deadlines.

    Gun mechanics are awful, each gun feels exactly the same. Even if one gun felt particularly good, you probably wouldn't be able to use it because they opted to gate weapons, offering clear winners and losers. Gear sets are an abject failure, not because gear sets are bad, but because the bonuses they offer often should be base features or should be allotted to a perk system, not mutually exclusive. I played with the parkour set the majority of the time because to make that gearset viable, they decided to nerf the **** out of movement speed.

    What in the world are be doing with map discovery? No towers removes one of the most fun systems in far cry in an effort to have players go out and explore every corner. The issue with that is this map is essentially vacant. The world we are expected to uncover is just repeated poorly animated trees and shrubbery. Forcing players to speak to NPCs to uncover bases and checkpoints is just poor game design when you consider you speak to the same girl all across the map about 50-60 times just to figure out what you need to do. It is actually the same exact model of the npc. Has she been cloned? Does she just run around the map all day?

    Now let's talk about the story. The story makes no sense from the start. Dani "I'M LEAVING YOU CAN'T STOP ME" 5 seconds later "IM STAYING." Ok? Villain is almost entirely absent from the game. You see Castillo maybe once every two hours in meaningless cutscenes. You have pretty much zero interaction with him throughout the game. All other characters are poorly acted and scripted. There was a level of cringiness in the dialogue that had me question whether a group of high schoolers wrote the script. This game made me realize that with this writing team it probably was a good option for Ubisoft to go with a silent protagonist all these years. In fact, after this game, PLEASE GO BACK TO A SILENT PROTAGONIST, YOU CAN'T WRITE TO SAVE YOUR LIFE.

    Now finally let's talk about gameplay. The only way I can describe it is by screaming REGRESSION. Sure, the bullet sponges in new dawn weren't fun, but they were better than this disaster. Check points are braindead easy, kill 3 enemies and blow up a sign. Oh a tank shows up and you're in combat? Blow up the sign and it disappears. Outpost are somehow even easier than checkpoints. NPC pathing is so incredibly slow, they don't really stop to have conversations with each other, detection speed is ridiculously slow, and you often have about a football field of rooms between one enemy and the next. That last point goes hand and hand with the movement speed nerf. When crouched, you move about a cm a second. When running full speed you move about a foot a second. 90% of my game was probably me just running. Running to enemies, running to vehicles, running to supplies...not because I opted to run, but because there was no other option and movement speed was nerfed so hard , running took up the most time.

    You were looking forward to boss fights? Great, but they die in one hit and behave like every other NPC. I was so excited for a helicopter fight my first boss...then I fired one rocket and he died mid dialogue. Second boss, shot him in the head died mid dialogue. I'm all for realism in games, but in a game where Ubisoft avoided realism and believability throughout why the **** is the only realistic mechanic during boss fights -- a place where realism SHOULD go out the window to make them harder than other encounters...

    Despite what ragers thought about 5 and New Dawn there were some bright spots that may have been implemented to make 6 a great game. Instead Ubisoft took what everyone loved about Far Cry and threw it out the window for 6. What happened to towers? What happened to all weapons being viable, allowing you to pick and choose how you want to play? What happened to meaningful hunting? Where are the funny and unique notes in open buildings and why did you replace them with the same 3 copy paste notes? Where are the hard boss fights? Where is the villain? Where are the towers? Where are the side missions? Finally, where is the writing? This game is the perfect case study of regression in video games, and was one of the worst games I have played this year. I could not recommend this game to people who like Far Cry, nor would I recommend it to someone who has never played the franchise.
