I'll say I've been pretty loyal to far cry since far cry 2 came out, but honestly, the story is the story is almost the same as the previous two entries with a few details either added or changed. Not to mention all the bullshit tasks that interrupt the flow of gameplay. One minute I'm shooting at a bear that's attacking an outpost and the next I'm somehow teleported into a trippy building where I have to kill all these people in less than 1 minute? What the actual fuck. This will be the last Far Cry game I buy no doubt.
far cry 5 is hands down the best game to come out in years. If you have not played it you are missing an amazing experience.
here is the best deal currently available.
What ruined the whole game experience for me is their new progress mechanic. It's disrupting the game and the open world feels extremely closed with it. When you reacha . certain reputation - the baddies simply whisk you out of the game world to put you in the situation required to enforce progress.
When i started playing it was awesome, but then the further you go on the more you realize - the game is broken
I realised something about this game today. So, all I want to do is fish and hunt in this game. I find things like that fun but was constantly getting fucked off by passing Eden Gate Goons and fighter planes. Its impossible to do anything without them shooting at you. Initially this annoyed me but I later realised that like the others living in hope County the Peggies where ruining everything. I literally captured every outpost and killed all three of the siblings just so I could fish. I've never played a game where the story is irrelevant to me and fish so important. Every boss I killed was not for the people, but for the fish.
You can get a free ubisoft theme from the PlayStation store that plays the farcry 5 menu music and also uses the key tunes its not a farcry 5 theme but a ubisoft theme that uses the music for some reason and it came out months before.
Man I know it doesn't do anything new, it is basically Far Cry 2 refined, with better gfx, and a GREAT WORLD to fuck around in, but for some reason I can't stop playing it when I start, something not even FC3 could do to me, great game GOTY contester for me!!
does this game leave you with the impression that if they just labelled it ghost recon they'd have a master hit for that series as well? it's pretty much what I was hoping ghost recon was gonna be, change some of the aesthetics and boom! ghost recon reborn. like going down into the bunker for example, that was a big part of wildlands
I just did the don’t cuff the guy part an beat it then uninstalled it lol I dunno I got bored of farcry games I think far cry 3 was my favourite I didn’t like 4 so much an 5 just felt like I was dealing with trump voters lol
The specialist feature is fckin awesome...is something akin to the Nemesis System from the Lotr games, only simpler and more meaningful....you can have anybody as a companion...like in a modded version of Skyrim....it has the civilian rescuing system, like in all other FC games...only twist here is, you can hire them after you save them...and they all have their own set of skills....it started with the beast system in FC Primal, the side quest system in AC Origins, the huge worldmap in TC Wildlands...and all these combined and on steroids are added in FC 5.
Ubisoft is evolving.....the story is something to be remembered...has a Bioshock Infinite feeling going on with the religious cult...even the enemies can use the ziplines..and they will chase after you using them...like in Infinite. It doesnt feel fake, story feels legit, like what your doing matters, and can happen in reality. The shadows and the forests are more awesome and realistic than in any other game i played, including the forest simulator, The Forest...its almost real...Ubi is getting there....now its like youre looking at it through camera lenses....FC 6 will be real lifelike, just wait and see.
Oh and the music....this game has one of the best soundtracks ive ever heard in a game. At first I was so impressed i just left the game running and i was listening to the beautiful songs for an hour or 2.
I don't like the variety of guns in the game, 70% of the guns are just re-skins of other guns, same stats and everything, just maybe gold, red or american flag style. Its lazy and downright bad for a first person shooter.
I purchased this game on Saturday and honestly it’s amazing. I’d rate it at least a 9 out of 10. The game does have a few problems, lore about events in the world around you or Hope county doesn’t feel rich enough. The immersion is still there and the game will give you a great experience.
After playing this game I finally understand ACGs criticisms. There is too much going on and the AI is all over the place it's annoying. I have been stuck at a checkpoint for 30 minutes just dying and respawning because once I take out the 4 guys guarding the point a truck full of more enemies shows up every 15 seconds and even when I kill them all a random cougar shows up as I'm looting or healing and I die easly caught off guard. Then when I'm trying to talk to a guy to get missions I keep getting interrupted by enemies and either the guy dies or I die. The enemy spawning makes no sense, at many times the game's
"dynamic" events will spawn out of thin air, even the vehicles. I had fun but dammit is the world broken and unpolished. Ubisoft just tries so hard but can't get anything right because of their stupid deadlines.
I agree with the constant attacks once you get about half way through an area it mellows out to the 3 and 4 level of patrols I just can't wait to play far cry 3 classic hopefully its actually different then just a resale of the og version at least more frames would be nice
I played the game for a bit over 4 hours - I thought it was Way Over-rated~! A lot of the game was "grainy" - and the game play was really repetitive - to the point that it sucked. Then when I found out about the "endings" - I took the game to a used game store and sold it - got $45.00 bucks for a game I payed $60.00 bucks for , not including the Game Pass..but gonna get the FarCry 3 for PS4 in June, so if they can get the graphics right, I will be a happy camper~! FarCry 5 was the absolute WORST of the FarCry games -- Bah Humbug~!!!
Getting money in far cry 5 isn't hard at all. You never have to use the micro transactions, in fact the silver bars on the first outpost reset will get you at least the .50cal sniper. Don't know why this guy had so many AI issues but the AI in this game is better then most AI's in single player games. Either way each to their own, I would buy the game arcade mode is awesome (something he barely touched on) and all the down talking about faith and the illusions he clearly was playing this game like a call of duty/MGS game. Story goes a long way... =/
i have to disagree i love the spawning problem the amount of Chaos you can get your self into is a blast. cant count how any time i parked in the middle of the road and camped and started a huge traffic jam that turned into all out war
I play this game for 20 hour in side mission and i already open 90% of the weapons and skill so the story misiion become soo easy to me ..the point is why they didn’t make the weapon open when you do story mission only and they make it like get 100 head shot 200 silent kill to make you play the mission carefully and to have fun with those thing not to play 100 of side mission all the same on different level and different place
Im totally over open world games. as much as i enjoy fc5, and ive 100% johns island, im bored of it already. give me something linear with a great story, like doom 3, quake 4, or even something like bioshock infinite any day
I've lived in Montana since 2007. I've never played a Far Cry game but holy cow they captured the wilderness perfectly. May have to start a let's play channel for this guy.
P.S. The Testicle Festival is a real thing.
Watched this after realizing they nerfed my Pointman class in GRW. Now I'm looking through the comments hoping I see something that pushes me to hold off and play GR story over from scratch. All I see is positive comments and although I can usually hold off impulse purchases, ive smoked, drunk and tricked off more than $60 in one evening in the name of having a good time. Gonna grab this in a few hours.
Well done. This is only honest review on the internet for this game. You're right the AI totally destroyed the game for me. At the beginning you are told to burn your clothes so nobody would recognize you. That doesnt seem to stop them. I tried to do some quiet fishing but a plane half a mile in the air spotted me through trees and would leave me alone. I managed to shoot it down but that brought more enemies which i had to fight for 15 mins before I could get back to fishing. Teleport bullet proof enemies. Quests glitching half way through and making me restart. My health doesnt seem to go down gradually either. It is at 100% or 1%.
Best Far Cry yet. Sad you didn’t like it as much. I love it and can’t stop playing it. I’m always finding something new when I explore and it’s awesome. The story was well written and portrayed and the gameplay is the tightest and best it’s ever been.
Biggest problem with FC games to me is the lack of weapon depth. 5 is more balanced than 4 (where all you need is a silenced sniper), but there is still little practical reason to use a variety of guns. Plus half the guns are variants of one platform with the same stats, except for different recoil patterns or something. There are not nearly enough unique mission-unlocked guns (only one iirc)
Im getting mostly for the crazy shit thst happens randomly because I love absolut chaos in games, also another main thing is the map editor becuause I also LOVE creating maps and things. (Please excuse my bad spelling)
I hated that my coop partner didn't unlock any campaign vehicles or guns from doing missions, since your partners progression isn't counted. The progression for getting new generic guns´was slow AF, and after you buy one, the game is like "Oh but do you want the actual sniper scope? Sure just pay another 1600". unlocked like 4 guns, and my partner 1 at the end, because he was silly enough to spend on ammo, DON'T SPEND MONEY on ammo, you will regret it. I really got that feel that they just wanted us to buy silver bars, there aren't any real reasons for these things not being unlocked from the start. The story was absolutely generic, the villains, so cartoony. The NPCs will talk for several minutes when giving out quests, they will also be interrupted by almost anything, luckily you can skip MOST of them, but not all... These things totally destroyed my experience.
As a long time far cry fan I absolutely hate this game. The non stop attacking of enemies absolutely ruins it. NON FUCKING STOP. and wtf happened to hunting? They should have improved on that not thrown it away. Less animals, less incentive to hunt them, and just annoying everything.
It's funny that Karak and most other reviewers think that there are too many patrols and too much stuff is happening in FC5 when compared to 4. I feel the exact opposite. Most of the time in 4, I couldn't go (literally) 30 seconds with a fucking eagle trying to rip my face off or a badger or a bear or something. Everything was so damn aggressive, whether you were in the wilderness or on the roads or in a city, something was always trying to kill you. I couldn't play FC4 because I couldn't stand how obnoxious it was--how it had absolutely no chill, even after clearing outposts. You could clear the entire map and still be skull-fucked by eagles every minute, no matter where you were on the map.
I have hardly had that problem with 5. Animals don't often attack unless you get too close to their territory. Eagles have been replaced by turkeys which, while still being overly aggressive and powerful, are way more docile in 5 than any eagle was in 4 and will keep their distance unless you come close. in 4, every kind of animal would run half a mile to fuck you up just for looking their way. In 5, not even bears seem to care too much unless you piss them off. Cougars still suck. I've only been attacked by two wolverines and I was deep deep in the woods.
Patrols on the roads are much better, too. Yeah, they get tougher as you piss the boss of the region off more. But if you stay on the side roads and trails, you really don't have that much trouble. Or, hell, just hop in a plane and fuck shit up from the air. And really, it doesn't take all that long to rush through the story missions and kill the boss. Then, the region becomes almost completely clear of cultists, but all the missions remain.
I think what happens is reviewers, in their rush to finish the game quickly, get too reliant on the hand-holding mechanics of a game, namely, in this case, the GPS guidance. They hop in the car and follow the arrows and it always puts them on a main road. And of course the main roads are going to be swarming with patrols looking for you. Turn that shit off or ignore it and you'll have a lot more fun. Take trails and side roads, cut across fields and through woods. Or, fly.
I couldn't avoid patrols by sneaking through the woods in 4. They'd be patrolling the woods AND the roads. And there was always someone with a rocket launcher to shoot down the helicopter thing. And then there were the eagles... The fucking, game-ruining eagles.
Compared to Far Cry 4, Far Cry 5 has way more down time and way fewer annoyances, in my experience. I've killed one boss, and it's even relaxing to just cruise around the roads and towns with only two cultists on an ATV maybe every 15 minutes. It feels like strolling around GTA without any wanted level; no one messes with you unless you mess with them first.
Not to mention the side missions are so much more interesting and less cookie-cutter. The main story is throwaway, but there are some real gems in the side missions.
In fact, I might be enjoying it more than FC3.
Beautiful video ◕‿↼ I love it!!!
I was interested to get this game when it will go on sale and this review convince me to not wait and specially I did don’t know what edition I should get. Last week I did get FarCry 4 and FarCry Primal for very cheap so I will go with the Gold edition to support the team I think they deserve it. Thank you so much for the great review buddy (▰˘◡˘▰) U can follow me on Xbox live gamertag Hi Frenchy I follow back 😉 U also can follow me on Instagram @joy_of_creating_by_thierry if you want? I follow back too ◕‿↼
How's the CPU performance? After AC: Origins and it's ridiculous CPU-hogging anti-piracy software, I'm very hesitant to buy another Ubisoft game. From what I can tell, this has all the same anti-piracy software that AC: Origins had.
i7-6700 (3.4ghz), GTX 1070 here.
Does anyone else remember when medal of honor had to change the name of the bad guys from "taliban" to something else, because it was "too offensive"? Far Cry 5 everyone, with all those crazy Christians.. nothing offensive there....
