Reeling In A Big One - Far Cry 5 Fishing Gameplay
Mar 27, 2018I'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.
Mar 26, 2018Far 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.
Mar 26, 2018Off 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.
Games Master UKApr 19, 2018Neither toothless nor incendiary, Far Cry 5 does its setting justice but colours within the lines. [May 2018, p.60]

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

Mar 27, 2018A near perfect balance of classical storytelling and a polished, high end feeling world.
The Dev's deserve credit- the game is very wellA near perfect balance of classical storytelling and a polished, high end feeling world.
The Dev's deserve credit- the game is very well composed, strong action sequences are possible along with realistic bullet mechanics. A strong rebound for a franchise that has arguably seen its best days during its second installment.
This is a highly polished game, a breath of fresh air in a lackluster gaming age.… Expand

Apr 23, 2018Having played Far Cry 5 for a few weeks, I am about to finish the main story. I didn't rush through it and took my time finishing a regionHaving played Far Cry 5 for a few weeks, I am about to finish the main story. I didn't rush through it and took my time finishing a region before moving on to the next. Having played a lot of open world games, I was really hesitant about another open world where it's basically a checklist you're working through. I thought it would be really repetitive. I played Ghost Recon Wildlands last year which was fun at first but quickly turned into the same repetitive tasks as well as Assassins creed Origins which I didn't even finish. I pretty much always finish a game (I even ended up getting the platinum trophy for Wildlands!) but AC Origins was too much of the same thing, it got boring. Far Cry 5 has given me some of these moments but I'm still playing. Overall the environment is beautiful, I like the setting, nature, animals, day/night cycle. The missions are varied enough to keep me engaged with the exception of several useless missions which were awful and reminded me of Wildlands/Origins. Missions like 'collect 0/12 items' of this or that are pointless. Just like a mission forcing you to get roadkill kills and you’re driving around for an hour looking for that animal spawn. Complete waste of time, 0 fun, why? Whoever thought that would be a good mission should be fired. Let alone having to do it twice (once for deer and once for bison). Checking off outposts is getting kind of old too.
Other than that, exploring is a lot of fun. Everything looks good so it's nice to walk around and explore the environment, see what's in a house, checkout a good fishing spot etc. What really bothers me is the vehicle camera which can't be switched to 3rd person. It's ridiculous and makes driving a hassle. This in combination with nature being beautiful made it so I just walk somewhere to see my surroundings or get a helicopter (and I’m back to GR Wildlands flying from task to task). 0 incentive to drive vehicles has made me save up to over $75.000 in game dollars and I’ve bought all the weapons I want including several helicopters, planes, boats and cars. So people complaining about not having enough money is nonsense. The weapons are limited because a lot of them have the same stats. Customization is limited. Vehicles are annoying to drive so I don’t even bother buying them, they’re all the same and the in-vehicle camera is annoying. In addition to this you unlock plenty of vehicles in main missions. No incentive to buy vehicles.
Doubted my purchase thinking it would be another ‘chore’ playing it and travelling around the map ticking off boxes. It kind of is but I still found it worth it, largely due to the environment/exploring. I am ready for a new type of game though, probably God of War. I’ll come back to open world down the line.

Mar 31, 2018Far Cry has never been my favorite series, but always good enough for a couple dozen hours of play. So not expecting a game of the year, butFar Cry has never been my favorite series, but always good enough for a couple dozen hours of play. So not expecting a game of the year, but still disappointed Ubi dropped the ball on some big things
Beautiful looking game
Most sound effects and the addition of an echo
Feels like the least amount of destructible-environment I have seen since FC2
You can't shoot TVs or even turn radios off
The music matched the them, but just the Pause menu music got so annoying, I switched Music to Off
Glitchy game right now 3/31/18
I hear and see a vehicle of enemies pulling up towards me, and will randomly disappear entirely
I have gotten stuck several times acending a wall with the grappling hook
The amount of times NPCs have you locked into a conversation when you are getting a radio call from someone, or bad guys are shooting you, or the most recent for me; getting bit by a rattlesnake. I suppose it makes it more realistic, but meh
Stores in-game seem to all want to connect to Ubisoft online or something, because they take forever to load up and sometimes get stuck
The loading times suck in this game. Yeah, it's huge and graphical, but so was Wildlands, and I feel strong those loading times were slightly less
Crafting is almost completely gone. You can craft a few explosive devices, and that's it I believe. And you pick those up all the time anyway. This makes looting and hunting almost obsolete, as money comes by better with just side and main missions.
Gun variety seems to have taken a step back from FC4. I suspect Ubi is gonna try and push micro transactions heavily on guns and vehicles.
Blow up cars or helicopters just kind of hang around as a blackened version of itself, never splitting into pieces or blowing up entirely
The game wasn't hard, but I decided to drop the difficulty level from Hard to Normal just because of how frequently bad guys pop-up EVERYWHERE. Can't get a 30 sec reprieve without them lining up.
This makes stealth play pretty useless, with how easy it is to get caupght. I had a silenced sniper that works sometimes, but try to shoot a lone sniper on a tall barn roof? Everyone around goes on alert. Needs tweaking.
Story - Bad guys are okay with decent voice acting. Better than Wildlands, and they can't keep trying to replicate Vaas, so that's fine
Driving is done a good bit on dirt roads, so can be a bit of a pain to make quick escapes and turns, but adds to the realism
They abandoned giving your character a voice, like Ubi finally realized their usual main characters are so darn cookie-cutter, that they couldn't figure anything out better than silence
Create a character is something I always love, but this round is so useless as a pure FPS, and the options seem even more cash grabby than WIldlands
In the end, I found myself wishing some of the game was more like Dying Light, as this game is a par Far Cry game, but took some shuffles back on some of the most important aspects of what makes a game a Far Cry game for me.… Expand
