    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. Finally, Montana is so beautiful I can't believe it. 10/10 for me. Expand

    I am baffled by all the low scores from critics because they didn't like the story, or didn't feel the story lived up to its premise. Yeah,I am baffled by all the low scores from critics because they didn't like the story, or didn't feel the story lived up to its premise. Yeah, the story DOES suck. The story also sucked in Far Cry 4, I can't even tell you why I killed the last boss. But that's not what the game is about, it's about having a massive open world to go out and find random mayhem in, and to that end it is a triple backflip and sticks the landing.
    Running and gunning is better than ever before, and they tuned all the gameplay mechanics to make one of the tightest FPS I've played in forever. They also dramatically improved vehicle handling, so now I look forward to driving around instead of treating it like a chore.
    If you like action games, or hell even if you don't, but want to feel like you're living in an action movie, this is a must-buy!

    Good game. Thought they could have done more with the story. Still think far cry 3 is the best in the series

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)
