      An average FPS experience

      This was my first experience with the Far Cry series, and I've played about 12 hours into it, taking my time going through one leg of the story. My experience is with a standard PS4. Gameplay: 3/5 The gameplay is standard FPS fare. Nothing particularly special, new, or outstanding. I needed to reduce look sensitivity off the bat to keep my view from jumping too far on a light thumbstick press, but once that was done, controls were pretty tight and standard. The game world is nice and open, with multiple "regions" that you can progress through, 75% of which are immediately available following the short intro island. There is a progression of perks that you can attain to customize your playstyle a bit, but ultimately, most of the ones that you're going to want are all attainable. There are a decent number of weapon upgrades, but I feel they're somewhat limited. The mercenary AI is expectably average, as are enemy combatants, sometimes just standing there waiting for their point-blank headshots. However, the formula is one that works, and works pretty well. I've encountered several functional bugs that are somewhat frustrating, including a story mission involving an airplane, where upon being shot down (dying) and resuming the mission, it consistently respawns you in the air with your aircraft completely powered down, causing it to instantly fall to the ground. This results in a death loop unless you quickly hop out and open your parachute. I expect this will ultimately be patched, but I refuse to believe that nobody noticed this in testing. Quests and collectibles are everywhere. Not Assassin's Creed Origins level, but enough that I decided to start overlooking anything that doesn't strike me as really interesting, for fear of getting burned out before I can finish the game. If you're a completionist and love having tons of stuff to do, this game will satisfy your itch. Graphics: 4/5 The foothills of Montana are amazingly detailed, and environmental effects are superb. Character models are a bit stiff in their stature and movement; better that last-gen, but I've come to expect more. Variety in character models is also sorely lacking, and often multiple copies of the exact same model can be found standing right next to each other. Other games get around this by giving you gas-mask equipped, uniformed soldiers to fight, but when your game calls for plainclothes American cultists, it's very noticeable, and I wish a little more work was done to avoid this. Also, while flying in an aircraft and hunting for ground-level mission targets such as vehicles, they often don't visibly spawn until you're practically on top of them, and they vanish again when you come around for a second pass, making it seem like an intentional draw distance limit while piloting. Ground structures and scenery do not have this problem at all, so I expect those were given priority and the "moving model" distance limit was imposed due to graphical limitations, and it's possible that the Pro model PS4 might handle this better. Sound: 4/5 Sound is pretty good, and they've done a decent job with the surround. Nothing really noticeable, but then, you're not really supposed to "notice" sound effects. They're just supposed to be natural. The music isn't anything you're going to want to listen to outside of the game, but it fits. There are a few bugs where the game applies an effect, such as echo to speech (meant to sound as if it's coming over loudspeakers), and then has a problem turning it off again, so that radio chatter and voices of people standing right in front of you ~also~ sound like they're coming over a loudspeaker, but it's not often enough to be a serious problem. Story: 4/5 The story is good, but requires mild suspension of disbelief, as it overlooks the most sensible solution (escape the region and contact the national guard) in favor of (help out the locals and build a civilian resistance). But video games are all about suspending disbelief, so I won't hold that against it. A superb job was done with the voice acting, and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the story unfold. There are some areas of enforced progression that seem to be triggered by your progress level in an area, in the form of "elite" soldiers showing up to capture you, which they manage by using drugged weapons that you can't really avoid, which is sort of a lazy mechanic, but a tolerable one. Overall, I think this is a good game, and I'd definitely recommend it if you have a love for the FPS genre and enjoy long single-player campaigns.

      Possibly the Best in the Series

      Far Cry 5 does so much right, it's hard to find anything wrong with it. In fact, they've trimmed so much of the excess away and streamlined the experience to allow you to focus on the fun that you really hope they don't return to prior iterations that had you waste so much time hunting for ingrediants. Crafting still plays a minor role here, but it's mostly an afterthought that doesn't require any intense hunting the environment. Ammo bags, inventory satchels are earned by perks, not by hunting and crafting them, as an example. You'll be able to add a helper from various styles (sniper, explosives, etc) and eventually get to add from your choice of a dog, a bear or even a cougar. Far Cry Arcade is here, with the ability to walk up to an arcade machine and play from community made maps or even create your own to share. Live Events offer weekly challenges that allow you to earn unique rewards, as well as premium currency, individually and from community goals. In many ways, Far Cry 5, with its ability to forge your own story, large playground of interacting with almost anything, and over the top events is the first-person game the GTA5 first person view tried to be. Whether you're a long time fan of the Far Cry series who grew tires of the excess crafting or climbing towers to reveal the map (or any other extraneous exercise,) or a newcomer deciding where to start, Far Cry 5 is simply the best choice among them all. As an added bonus, if you choose to grab the Season Pass, you'll get the upcoming port of Far Cry 3 on PS4, as well as zombie, alien, and VietNam modes. One of the few Season Passes I felt compelled to purchase.

      Game of the Year

      I am not a regular gamer & do not play often. I only buy a game when I think it will be phenomenal. The last one being Battlefield 1. I never really got into the Far Cry series & only decided that I wanted this one when I saw a trailer for it. I could immediately tell it'd be a good one. It definitely did not disappoint. Great story line, believable characters, stunning graphics & scenery, a HUGE open world, & tons of missions (including side missions). You can roam the world hunting down bad guys, hunting animals, or you can go do some fishing. You can find a plane or helicopter & do some recon (fantastic). Every single vehicle (boats, aircraft, cars, trucks, boats, etc) is operable. The difficulty is not easy either. Enemies will try to evade or run to cover, or will group up & attempt to kill you. If you stay in one spot too long, you're toast. Using your hired guns is vital in many instances. Stealth is also your friend. I have played this game for two days & I am probably not even 15% through the game. Between work & family, it'll probably take a few months for me to get through it. Oh, one more thing. If you're buying for your kid, this game is EXTREMELY violent & has tons of vulgar language. It is lots of fun & very addicting for adults like me though. I can tell the developers put an absolute ton of time & money into this game. That is very evident. It's magnificent.

      The Best of the Franchise.

      Going into it, I thought Far Cry 5 would be a marginal improvement over 4 in the same way Far Cry 4 was a marginal improvement over 5. I'm glad to have been so wrong. Far Cry 5 easily blows 3 and 4 out of the water and sets a new gold standard for the franchise as a whole. You can tell that Ubisoft put a lot of thought into focusing on the previous games' strengths and mitigating its weaknesses. Instead of just focusing on one charismatic antagonist that you only see a couple of times throughout the game, this game gives you four that you can take down in any order, all of them constantly antagonizing you throughout the game instead of only rarely showing up. Instead of climbing towers over and over again, you learn about the world by exploring, talking to NPCs, reading notes and listening to answering machines. Instead of forgettable music, there are actually some nice licensed tracks on the radio. The vehicles have much more variety to them as well. In addition you now have NPC companions that you can take with you, each with their own skills to make things easier for you. It's a page ripped straight fro Metal Gear Solid 5, but I think Far Cry 5 actually does it better. All this without even mentioning the Arcade mode, which gives you a virtually endless amount of content to play through after you finish the campaign. I think people who had written off Far Cry after 3 and 4 should give 5 a chance. People who already liked 3 and 4 have no reason to hold off. This is definitely one of the best games of 2018.

      This game is pro American

      I bought this game because I heard through numerous websites newspapers and review that said this game was anti American, racist and other stuff, but after playing this game I am practically at the end of this game of beating that I have found nothing that would be anti American. This is my first game in the far cry series and I’m loving it it is so easy to learn but hard to master . I have a found nothing that would be controversy or racism or anything anti American in this game and believe me I’ve look I probably spent about over 100 hours in this game doing about everything in this game that could be done. This game not for people that are SJW or liberal or anybody that are easily offended because they do make fun of them but in a kind way but they made fun of everything else also. Reason why I say this is because I am from a mix,religion,culture and race. Me and my mom side of the family are all born and raised in America are Christian and on my dad side of the family they are From the country of Jordan a big Arab middle eastern Muslim country. This game is basically just stand up take back to town from crazy cult people who think that they are right and basically hate you for standing up and thinking for yourself. The game is very challenging but also fun and rewarding. It also makes you think I’m questioning yourself.

      Far Cry 5 continues it's madness!

      First of all, long time gamer dad here(age 46!) If you like the Far Cry series, you'll probably like this one too. It's set in Montana, very pretty rural scenery, very realistic with the visuals This is a shooter, open world style game, maybe not for young kids. Very graphic at times. You have 3 main enemies in this religious cult you're fighting against plus all their followers. Lots of side missions per area, tons of things to do. The game has some political jokes, one character says, "If the liberals couldn't take my guns, no-one can!" Funny(to me). You can command boats, helicopters, quads, cars, trucks, etc. The trusty wing-suit is still there as well as the grappling hook. The explosions and the sound of them is top notch. Lots of weapons, most all you can upgrade in some way. I actually like the fishing challenges, kind of mixes it up a bit Good story, definitely different in a way from the other Far Cry games, but the basic mechanics are the same. As of me writing this, Far Cry 5 is the 3rd best selling game as of late. What are you waiting for? C'mon down to Hope County!

      Not a whole lot different from 3 or 4

      If you're playing this game by yourself, it's not a whole lot different than when you played 3 or 4. The mechanics are more or less the same. The game is laid out the same........main bad guy....have to liberate parts of the map to be able to go after the main villain. Game does shine if you play this online co-op with someone else. The farcry arcade adds endless replay ability. Lots of DLC planned for game. If you didn't play Far Cry 4 or 3 (but especially 4) then you should definitely play this game. If you played 3 and 4 and will be playing this alone...wait for a sale. For trophy/achievement hunters ...some of the trophies require you to play online matches....and those can be a pain as it's team based so you can be the best but your team will lose and you wont get the wins you need to unlock those trophies. And the longer you wait after it's been released the more dead those servers will be.

      Fun game, lots to do, but gets repetitive.

      There are 4 areas controlled by bosses that have different influences in those areas. It helps to keep things somewhat fresh as the world is pretty big, and as has been the thing with Ubisoft games now, there are a ton of big and little things to do. Things like side missions, destroying certain objects, liberating outposts, etc. The mechanics like shooting, driving, and exploring are solid. It looks great on a PS4 Pro. My issue is that even though there is a variety to the terrain, the game gets extremely repetitive. Sure there are a lot of things to do, but after a while, you realize that you're doing the same thing you've done many times before. It's a fun game, but probably not a good idea to try to 100% straight through. Take breaks and play other games in between and come back to this one. Also, the Multiplayer is horrible. The shooting mechanics do not transfer well to online Multiplayer.
