I’m not watching this video bc i just beat the game and loved it. I am commenting here because i did something i often do in games that ended up kind of ruining the experience for me and i wanted to help others who do the same as i do to avoid falling into the same trap. Don’t worry this will be free of spoilers. Also if anything i say is mentioned in this video remember i did not watch the video.
So the type of thing i often do in games i eluded to is turn down or turn off the music. In many instances but not all i find the music in games superfluous! Especially while in game. cut scenes are often warranted in my opinion but while playing the game i prefer just sounds of combat and characters and atmospheric ambiance, makes for a much better gaming experience or rather much more immersive experience. The crickets, the wind and the gun fire sigh all i need....except here. Now Farcry 5 with no music is phenomenal the sound design is epic so plying the game without music is worth it however there is a whole element of the game you will miss out on if you turn off the music. By the time i got over the confusion i was having and realized it was related to the fact that the music was off it was to late to get drawn in to that part of the story as it was intended. Also depending on what ending you get it ads an awesome “holly shit” moment. So to reiterate for those of you who play games as i do with no music i recommend not turning the music off for this game if you want to fully lose yourself in the (in my opinion) masterful storytelling keep the music on. As promised i left out any spoilers if you have read this far thank you for reading...now go kill some Peggis!
Im absolutely loving this game ...it tightens up so much i wished for in the other far cry games..Love how color is used especially in the guns which keeps things new and interesting.. im annoyed however that much of the ai dialogue ,sounds like it has an unessesary, reverb effect applied. Makes sense in a cave ,but not in the open ,..and sounds wrong...otherwise outstanding game and entertaining, informative review as usual.
Any chance you can do an updated video on the AI, assuming there have been fixes since the time of this video? I would imagine that ubi have revisited this title since then.
Thanks bro, your reviews are the best, and the only ones that I really trust.
Okay this game has the danger of having betacuck advocates reviewing it. Men who never leave the bay. So I've noted on Google this game has a 93% approval but reviewed are saying 50-62% and 6/10.
I watched one YouTuber who thought ripping on middle America made him cool (I live on the coast and find it distasteful) and none of the review contained actual gaming quality information.
Just how *outraged* he is my America.
So to those who have this game and operate with an open mind, how is this game for real? If I buy it, it'll be my first far cry ever... I always wait for sales but what ya'll think about this game?
The story is compelling from the opening scene, a mix of brutal reality and sensationalist fantasy. The graphics are beautiful most of the time on PS Pro, with some pop in. Turn UI off except Interaction Prompts for a more immersive experience. This game dumps you in to a world filled with chaos. You can play your own way, using a variety of weapons, perks and play styles. It really encourages you to explore, and while at times the sheer number of enemies and random patrols can feel unrealistic and annoying, overall I've nearly completed it on Normal, and will complete it on Hard next. As far as open world FPS go, this is my favourite so far.
As an intro to the game, I enjoyed the constantly spawning AI, because it gave me some good practice at the game while free roaming. I've been free roaming more than progressing the story at all. If the AI was any smarter, I probably wouldn't be having as much fun. Until I finally got some decent weapons and Boomer to help, I hated the attacking bears and wolverines. Now I just hunt them when I see them.
Did anyone notice that hurks characteristics don't stand out in this game at all. It's like 7 of the 10 characters of the characters in this game are just like hurk. They dont really take things serious and make cheesy bad jokes all the time and dont feel interesting at all. The only character that really stands out in this game is joseph seed. They did a good job in him. But all the others are just annoying. I think i killed more "resistance fighters" than peggies. Am i the only one who things the characters arent good?
I think without a bit of silliness and humour the game could be quite depressing. It's a mix of humour and brutal reality that makes the game like a comic book adventure, it's not trying to be a realistic combat simulator. I liked a bit of stupid banter from some of the characters, it makes the game less heavy and lonely, rather than roaming on your own against overwhelming numbers of enemies and intense brutal violence.
Personally I'm just really not digging the story. I just did the first part of the game the opening and I decided to turn it off. Tired of the Christian faith being misused like this for the sake of edgyness.
If this had more gore would be more fun I think.
Also I find the explosions rather meh and the destruction leaves much to be desired. A car should break apart, I mean this current gen was promised to be hyper realistic and more bad ass, but it feels more less just like the last console.
Far Cry 5 Pros & Cons
4.Very unforgetable antagonist as always (like Vaas Montenegro & Pagan Min from the previous games)
6.Pretty long game
7.No Radio Towers (it was nice in FC 3&4 but they can't put that in every game)
8.Huge open world
1.The main character has no personality (no name, never talks, very forgettable)
2.Too many enemies & car patrols
4.Skinning animals only gives you money (and a little bit of skills perks)
5.No skinning animation
6.No mini map
7.It's not that easy to get money (the game forces you to do boring prepper stashe's quests for extra cash)
8.Very messy game (there is no order to the story missions)
9.Some story missions feels like side missions (or just not that connected to the story)
i bought this 2nd hand, but still had to sell it. this video breaks down the reasons for this being such a disapointment compared to the previous far cry games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8ddB4GIOkc
This fucking game needs patching it makes me lose a mission because the AI is not doi g what its supposed to do its not even my fault and its so damn annoying this can be a great game if they fix all the bullshit
ACG,,just picked this up and I am very pleased with my purchase. Super fun to play and the progression system is a vast improvement over the last game. The use of "fighters" who actually engage the enemy, perks and player interactions with the surrounding world make this a must buy in my opinion. Also No one reviews games better than ACG, Facts!
If you’re lucky enough that you didn’t buy it yet then you are lucky enough.
.The game is soo garbage, literally soo trash, the side missions suck, the stealth is a huge disappointment, and it has more bugs than ac unity, literally if anyone of you say it’s the best in the franchise then it really sucks to be you.
I played this game for about 10 minutes, i put the controller down after letting loose a full clip into a cougar and still didnt die. Try to kill a bad guy? sure...after 5-10 bullets are put in him before he finally stops running away or trying to shoot me.
Looked forward to this game for 6 months. It is buggy as hell and I did not finish it as it screwed up missions with both patches. Graphics are top notch, the story is fair. But the game just doesn't work and I've tried redownloading and starting new. Very disappointing. I'd wait for a $15 sale. And I loved Far Cry 3, still play it now and then. Far Cry 4 was also good. This one is more like a beta release.
I should have listened to ACG. Enemy respawn is terrible. I bombed the outpost in an airplane and they went on high alert with reinforcements . I flew 200 meters past it and turned around, New enemies spawned instead of the old ones who were not aware of my presence . I jumped out of the airplane, fought some enemies and retreated into the forest (about 200 meters ), turned around (after music stopped playing ) and all enemies respawned as if nothing happened . Unrealistic and immersion breaking spawn system was not the case with Assassins Creed Origins. Because of this Far Cry 5 is not fun to play
What kind of control schemes does this game offer? I can only use Legacy/Default as my control scheme. For those that don't know, Legacy controls have you moving forward and backwards with the left control stick as well as turning left and right. The Right stick has you looking up and down and strafing left and right.
If any of you could verify what kind of controls this game has, especially if it has Legacy, I would greatly appreciate it.
Not sure where you live lol...but it's rather normal to see folks carrying firearms here. Me being one of said folks. (I often carry my pistol and either a shotgun or my AR-15 when i'm walking.) And no NOT because "im scared of something" quite the contrary. I'm not afraid of shit. I carry So That I have the Ability to protect myself AND The one's I Love as well as those around me in general.
daniel dermont same here, though I'm not in a rural area so it's mostly handguns,but the majority of the people I know carry on a daily basis, in one form or another. And if you ask most of them they will genrally say the same thing "I hope I don't ever have to use this fucking thing" lol better safe then sorry...
And having beaten the game now, I hate it. Absolutely despise the ending. Do Not Recommend, at least not for the story, the story is a raging dumpster fire. The rest of the game, is goddamned unadulterated fun.
@postalUT Nice run-on sentence with redundant use of adjectives followed by a fragmented sentence with poor preposition specificity. Just a thought, but rather than ending a genuinely unconstructive, subjective statement with an unspecified preposition that does not make any comprehensible point whatsoever you could mention a particular reason you came to your conclusion...
For example, you are very bad at combining words to convey information, which I have deduced is more than likely due to you having a double-digit IQ. While this may not be your fault entirely, I would strongly recommend not writing in public, as the resulting effects of the contortion of symbols you string together in a barely coherent manner ultimately result in sadness to those who accidentally stumble across it.
I watched the review when it first dropped, rewatched as it’s at a price I’m happy to pay for (along with its dlc).....6hrs later I’m already rolling my eyes at some of the mechanics.
Firstly I love the tone/setting. Little touches like the propaganda over the radios ect I love it, makesyou buy into what’s going on.
But f**k me if another patrol rolls past me, then instantly calls for reinforcements I’m going punt my console out the window.
I had a instance just now, I took down a single target with a bat. Stealth kill....yet the compound 300 yards away can hear this, they all instantly go onto high alert mode. I tested this 3 times, even a “bum rush”
From the bushes at the enemy sentry.
I was hidden, made no sound & the target was downed instantly. Yet this triggers a full compound lock down/call for those f***ing reinforcements, it’s infuriating. Yes they heard, all of 300 yards away....over the radios, chatter, ambient sounds my bat bouncing off someone’s head.
This early in & I think I’m done....if I have to duck away from one more damn patrol I’m going to scream
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.
