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.
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
I think that that is very relevant. For those of us who have played the other Far Cry games, the repetiveness is usually an issue. So, we hope that they make the game's story immersive. TBH, Far Cry 3 was the only story line that really was gripping, all the others are meh.
I haven't played this one, but I do take it with a large grain of salt when someone new to the series gives it a rave review.
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.
