    Far Cry 5 is a relentlessly fun, aggressively varied open world shooter that will keep you hooked for dozens and dozens of hours. The game's world has never felt more alive, brimming with animal ecosystems, serene lakes, and verdant forests, with spectacular scenery just begging to be screenshotted.

    It takes the Far Cry blueprint and expands the highlights while changing the sliders on aspects that became overused to craft not only the best Far Cry game, but one of the best open worlds to explore this generation, whether alone or with a little help from a friend (or AI dog).

    Far Cry 5 is a bloody laugh. It doesn’t take itself too seriously – but then the series never has. If you’re a fan of the previous games then this is a must buy for your collection; it is bright, noisy and frantic and I wouldn’t have it another way.

    Far Cry 5 offers a breathtaking adventure with solid shooting action, a living and appealing world to explore and a convincing bad guy. The addition of co-op is great and Far Cry Arcade makes this a package that every shooter fan must play.

    The biggest take away from Far Cry 5 was the fact that it was just pure fun. The missions were both fun and entertaining, the visuals are fantastic, and the shooting is refined and on point. Fans of the series have more than likely already picked this up, but if you remotely enjoy first person shooters, this is a must own. It’s not perfect, but it tries its best to be and you know what? It got close.

    This fresh take on the Far Cry franchise is clearly visible content-wise, but a tad more discrete on the style. If you're not bothered by the slightly repetitive formula, you'll enjoy the many strengths of this episode.

    Far Cry 5's story is a real let-down, but the action still makes for a solid co-op experience.

    By far the best Far Cry game they've made. On the Xbox One X this game looks absolutely stunning.

    I personaggi sono scritti divinamente ma i dialoghi un po'meno. Il gioco dura molto soprattutto se si completano le missioni secondarie

It provided fun gameplay and was not as dull as the previous versions. I just wish the main character of the game could talk and they would give him a good characterization. Overall it was very good and deserves this score Expand

    It's another FarCry, same old **** different setting. Main villain is ok, supporting ones are meh, most of the NPC are boring as hell,It's another FarCry, same old **** different setting. Main villain is ok, supporting ones are meh, most of the NPC are boring as hell, especially those who you have to save to freedom the region. Only the Sheriff isn't so bad. Most companions are useless except animals and Ray as pilot, others are easy to kill or act super stupid you'll be reviving them most of the time. Story is ok, the ending is cool, like I really liked that one, but the way (fight) that you have to do with Main villain is just so damn cringe worth. I hated the motivation of the seed family members, they so inhumanly bad wrote. I hated also that they did call me rookie after massacring like hundreds of cultist xD.
    Few small problems, that I didn't like also where small numbers of guns, you could be stuck with same gun from start to finish. Optic on sniper rifle are bad I mean in FC3 I could snipe some bad guys from 700m xD

    What is good in this game? There is tons of stuff to do, animal companions, and pilot ray. if you don't like some content u just can skip IT, you still will progress through story. Some quests are cool, and fun to do. Graphics are good, and music is good as well, you have the filling of being somewhat the hero.

    Final grade: Game is just ok, and fun if you like far cry series, nothing much. It's good to kill time to wait for something else bigger better. I paid for it less then 50$ so I would say for this price is worth it.

    Update: after playing ~33% of the game enemies became unrealistically tough. Two magazines in a head from close distance from M-16. Screw you,Update: after playing ~33% of the game enemies became unrealistically tough. Two magazines in a head from close distance from M-16. Screw you, guys (GDs of the game obviously). It's a single player game, I am here to have fun but not searching for ammo and having death from every second T-1000. Any PvP is much more fair - I can kill player by shooting them, not by making them consist of 80% of lead.

    Far Cry 5 was free this weekend for Xbox Game Pass owners I've gave it a try and... it is surprisely good! Graphics, controls, difficutly level, narrative and soundtrack - all good or even better, I am impressed. After a quite midiocre Valhalla that I thought should have been good but it's not, Far Cry 5 convicned me to pay for the game! So I can continue playing after the weekend. Nice work, guys! Keep it up.
