Far Cry 5 review
Exceptional
by Ian E.

Far Cry 5 is a welcome and refreshing addition to the Far Cry franchise. New weapons and a robust game engine make for a wonderful gameplay experience. TL;DR With new mechanics and a beautiful game world to explore, FC 5 is a must buy for fans of the series.

This one is complicated. I liked it, but after loving Far Cry 3, really liking 4, 5 while fun is just plain starting to feel to repetitive. Still fun, but kinda started to get bored after a while. Still recommend, especially if you have not played 3 and 4, but really hope they freshen things up for 6. 
Bringing the series back to the US really highlights how bizarre the series is. Still, co-op makes this game an incredible treat if you have a friend or two to take along for the ride.

My favorite part of Far Cry 3 and 4 was seeing how the experience changes the protagonist and a memorable villain. Joseph Seed is cool and all but he’s only around for a third of the game since you can take on the family in whichever order you want. There’s no subtle or clever themes present either like parallelism in Far Cry 3. At this point it was just another generic shooter and less of a Far Cry game. 
The setting of the game is very interesting and the characters are unique and memorable, as expected from a Far Cry game. While the same formula has been used, chasing after the bad guys and liberating towns, the game introduced new weapons, vehicles, character customization, the ability to have companions and many more features. I enjoyed playing this game and I recommend it.
this game is honestly boring if you dont have friends to play with 4.5/10

I liked the setting and story for far cry 5. The visuals were great. The gameplay is familiar and still feels quite good. The far cry games have also felt very addicting to me. I just want to do one more thing. Although I still really enjoyed this game there are two reasons it is lower than Far Cry 4.
Reason #1 - I like hunting animals to get skins and use them for upgrades. I wish they kept that in this game. This is going to sound a bit hypocritical when you here the next reason.
Reason #2 - I’m now a bit fatigued of this formula. It’s a great formula and I was only fatigued near the end but it’s been done enough that it started to feel repetitive towards the end. 

I still had a lot of fun with Far Cry 5.

Final Score: A
A noticeable improvement in every way from previous entries in the series but sadly nothing new or remarkable. Quality of moment to moment game play doesn’t keep this sequel from truly being more than just another Far Cry. Fun but predictable.
3/5

«Oh Lord, so give me a Creak so I can wade in the Blood of the pagan Pagans to praise your Glory. Eye for Eye, Cartridge for Cartridge, I walk in your Spirit through Montana to grill Cowsheds and rid all sorts of Bunkers of foul Skocks. Amen.» It didn't really one believe that With FarCry 5, Ubisoft Produces a snappy satire on the American Honks, hillbilies, rednecks, arch-conservative Bible Punishments or a dull-witted US president with the IQ Of a Skunk Endpoint, right? There are no Rock Stars at Work. No, FarCry 5 is more like a harmless fishing Trip to the Northwestern United States. Visually beautifully staged in the Scene. With a flattering Tapestry of sound and a fragrant lead-curled Air. In Terms of content, similarly arbitrary, weak and brutal as the Bible, but with more Fun. Ubisoft could have made (as always) more Effort in history, especially since, for once, reference is Made to a current Event of The time. Also, a voiceless (almost) hero seems badly antiquated in 2018. In Terms Of content, the Title is even really stupid and quite questionable in places. For example, in reality, there are heaps of spinners who build a Bunker in the US to be prepared against any zombie apocalypse or the imminent Invasion of the North Koreans. Or much worse; To get to Safety From a possible Storm of protest By lunatic Democrats, Environmentalists, Gays or Women. According to Ubisoft, these bunkering Backwoods are de facto far-sighted and extremely clever Subjects and actually even the smartest types in the whole Game. Except for the Villain, which is the Smartest. By Far. Fact. The brain-cracked completely illogical Ending proves it. In The End, however, one should have become accustomed to the Fact that in FarCry originality would be more likely to be found in the DLCs. Fortunately, however, Montana was captured so idyllic that you want to arm yourself with Crucifix and Kalashnikov and book your Plane Ticket For the USA. In terms of Style, everything stays the Same, except that you can save yourself the Climbing of any Towers. It simply does not exist. Conquering Nasty Villain bases also goes within two Minutes. Simply equip the next Helicopter with Missiles and send the Base over the Jordan River from the Air With a cheerful Hallelujah. Frankly, the Open World is enough for Me to make a Recommendation for FarCry. The World is so wonderfully designed and contains numerous small Details that turn out to be exceedingly clever. The World offers quite a lot of Variety, as you can now also man planes and compete in exciting Dogfights with the Drug Geeks and Bible Heralds. In addition, there are nice Companions (also animal) and just as funny as quirky Characters, such as Clutch Nixon (which you never get to Face). The Strength of the Game is that you only make clear Guidelines in a few Story Missions. Otherwise you can do and leave whatever you want and tackle things as you think they are fun. Verdict: Objectively, FarCry 5 is the best Part so far. Magnificent Scenery with numerous Details on US culture, great Soundrack and atmospheric Lighting Moods. In addition, there are numerous main and Secondary Missions, instead of brainless Collecting Tape. The shooter elements (the Handling) may not be quite up-to-date anymore, because there is no real Hit feedback à la Wolfenstein, for example. Driving and Airplanes are counter--soft. Ubisoft knows how to fill the World. After my 60 Hours, I could certainly put another 20 Hours into the Multiplayer. All in all, I had a lot of Fun with the Title and I'm already looking forward to the DLC's. If you are not sure, you should wait for a SALE, because then the small Negative Points are all the more Important.

A decently fun game, that shakes up the Far Cry formula in the structure just enough to make it interesting. My main gripes are two things:
- the story is complete ass, since it just creates edgy villains for the player to beat,
- exploring the world didn't bring me much excitement past the 5-hour mark.
I recommend it on a good sale.
6/10
