    What perfect videogame comfort food for at least, say, another 205 days.

    Even if we ignore the ridiculous quantity of content, and we focus only on the main storyline, we still get an amazing experience. Far Cry 5 is not the game we expected, but it’s exactly what we should have wanted in the first place.

    Far Cry 5 is mechanically sound and varied. You’ll find something that entertains you, and Ubisoft has nailed all of the underlying elements of character and world progression. At the same time, it squanders some decent writing because it can’t decide what kind of game it is.
  4. Far Cry 5 is looking really unique. The world, the cult, and the gameplay are solid and fun.

    The wonderful chaos of the open world and your choice of how to tackle it is occasionally stifled by bad boss fights and worse boss speeches.

    All in all, the duo multiplayer experience of Far Cry 5 is fantastic. The aesthetics alone manage to overshadow the frustrating mechanics that the game brings to bear and keep us wanting to play...If you’re looking for a fun, engaging, exciting game to play with a partner, this is definitely one to try out. Let’s hope that the games industry creates more partner play experiences for those who love to game together, but not necessarily in huge piles.

    The ambitious setting doesn't pay off in this story that seems to want to hedge every chance it gets. The end result is a story that goes nowhere, says nothing, and fails to live up to the previous settings and villains in the franchise. If you can get past that... the rest is pretty much fine if you're up for another Far Cry game.

For the ones sayingReally good game, amazing optimization , gameplay , graphics story, villains and fun and interesting friend characters . For the ones saying its the same as other FAR CRY games , that is the point , the game is full of new things : a new story , world , new animations , vehicles , features , But it remains FAR CRY , the thing I want to play not another series . Also keeping Dunia as an engine was an amazing choice , the engine looks amazing and this huge game only eats 26 GB of space !! Expand

Main and side quests are fun and challenging! Perk system adds allot to the game and is fun to add to your character. I have over 50 hours in gameplay and still not bored with it. I love to kind of go off and do my own thing at times and hunt and fish. Expand

    Nothing is different on far cry 3-4, do not waste your money, this series turned into another FIFA, released new one every year without content

    Good graphics and well optimized for PC but that's where the positive things end with this game. Unfortunately the story and the charactersGood graphics and well optimized for PC but that's where the positive things end with this game. Unfortunately the story and the characters are very boring it's like watching a weird and cliche bad movie. As for the gameplay this hasn't much improved it gets repetitive fast and the enemy A.I is really stupid. Most of the time the enemies just appear out of thin air (enemy spawning is crazy) they run to your face without cover they even just crash their cars all the time while following you they are hilariously stupid. Game has 3 endings and all of them are bad (not going to spoil them for you). Game also includes Denuvo DRM which i hate with passion also includes micro-transactions (another thing that i hate) and some annoying bugs. They ask 60 dollars/euros for this sorry but it feels like a scam. It's like playing a mod of Farcry 4 and not a new game. (Didn't bother with multiplayer) Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. All 3 endings, the good, the bad, and the "hidden" ending, are absolute garbage. The ending to Mass Effect 3 was better, and reflected your choices from the game more. No matter what you choose, no matter who you save, no matter how many outpost you liberate or collectables you find, you are screwed in the end. Insanity or a nuclear wasteland Montana are all that await you after hours of gameplay.

    This is a massive F-YOU from Ubisoft.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is the first time I stopped playing a game with nice gameplay because of the story. The endless kidnappings, cliches and making the player do stupid stuff basically feels like a big f*ck you to the players from the writers. Running around Montana is fun but then suddenly you get magically kidnapped so you can sit tied to a chair and listen to a baddie ramble on for 10 minutes. And that happens around 10 times in the game. I would alt+f4 when a kidnapping sequence was starting because I couldn't handle it. I've been a fan of the series for a long time but this was probably the last Far Cry I will buy. Expand
