    Cult Classic??

    So far having put about 6+ hrs into the campaign missions and free roam gameplay, I am impressed. The Montana backdrop and atmosphere are great. Nothing drastically different gameplay wise from Far Cry 4, but still tons of fun to play. Now for a few like and dislikes. Let's do dislikes first. I have to admit that I am a little disappointed with the enemy character variations. Last count, I noticed maybe 5-6 different cult follower enemy models. Not a huge deal, but it sometimes gets a little confusing when you take down one of these enemies and then another (clone) pops up looking identical to the one you just took down. Just thought at this stage in this franchise, there could have been more variety. Although I am still early on in the campaign, so that could change. I am also not a huge fan of how good the enemy AI is at figuring out your position. Many times during a gun fight, even in excellent cover and not shooting back to give away my position, the enemy AI somehow seems to know exactly where I am hiding. It does amp up the difficulty, but makes it seem a little unrealistic. Ok enough dislikes. Now for my likes. Gun play seems very responsive and the weapon variety is nice. Vehicles handle realistically. Helicopters and planes are a blast to fly and the sound effects are spot on. Graphically, the terrain and texture details are awesome! I am playing on a Plasma at 1080p and it looks amazing, so I can only imagine how great a 4K display would look. The game plays in typical Far Cry fashion. Accept a mission and complete it and you start unlocking more of your map and earn skill points to level up your character. If you are looking for some ground breaking improvements over the past 2 Far Cry games, other than improved graphics, the game plays pretty much the same. This is not a bad thing at all, but for some fans of the series, they may have been hoping for more. There is a lot to like here and if you are on the fence of buying or not buying, just know this. If you liked Far Cry 4, you will like Far Cry 5. It's nothing mind blowing, but that's ok. You will still have a ton of fun with something new to find around every corner. Buy it!!

    This is the first far cry game that I have played. I saw a review for it and decided that I wanted to try it out. I have completed most of the game by now and I have enjoyed most of it. The combat is easy and familiar, as is the progression. I like how your character gains skills and abilities when you get experience. The story is mostly good. I didn’t like how you are forced into certain parts of the story through “bliss bullets.” I understand the need to move forward with the story, but this takes you out of the action and forces you to do something. I enjoyed the many activities in this game including, fishing, hunting, wing suit flying, and parachuting. I also liked the many vehicles you can use. I would like to see more details in the vehicles, but they were sufficient. One example is the cars would never stop accelerating at least in the audio (engine and shifting noises.) The cars would have a max speed though and the sound made it comical. Multiplayer in this game is a lot of fun. I could have had friends come into my game to help or I could go into someone’s game. There’s also arcade mode with user and Ubisoft created levels.

    FarCry 5 makes America terrifying again.

    FarCry 5 is my first exposure to the FarCry series. So I can't speak about how it compares to the other FarCry games for the Xbox. FarCry 5 is a story of a lone deputy standing up to a loony religious apocalypse cult that has taken over a large chunk of Montana. This being Montana, it seems that the whole non-cult population was just waiting for someone to rise up so they could dust off their automatic weapons and join the fray...other than the average folks who are hanged, burned, drowned, shot, or converted by the cult. FarCry 5 is a first person shooter that is also a driving/racing game and an RPG of sorts and also a fishing simulator. The dramatic sequences in the game are dramatic, indeed. And it's interesting to see how the foreign (well, Canadian) writers and programmers view both Montana and America.

    Good game, but repetitive

    FarCry 5 took a great approach to simplifying the system already in place with this successful franchise. The perk system completely replaced the old crafting system that used to force you to spend hours tying to skin certain types of animals or collect ingredients. The combat is great and AAA quality, but you’ll encounter the same combat from start to finish. The game encourages stealth, but your NPC allies can blow your cover if you’re not careful. In the end, taking down Outpost #20 will feel just like Outpost #1, but with better weapons. The characters are the highlight of the game, and some of your companions can provide all the entertainment you need.

    A good update to the franchise

    This game is the best Far Cry I've played for one reason: the map is not flooded with ridiculous amounts of time-wasters. There are plenty of side quests and small things to do, but they feel VERY optional. Far Cry 5 still falls short though, because the storyline is predictable and hackneyed, and the combat is still not good enough to compare to a true FPS. There are options for attacking strongholds via stealth, guns blazing, explosives, etc., but it often feels like a strategy can't go all the way. Stealth rarely works out for a full stronghold because there simply aren't enough options for remaining in stealth, for example. Overall, a solid, fun game that's good for one playthrough.

    This type of game can be pretty polarizing, but if you’ve played he previous Far Cry games, then you know what to expect. Many side missions, missions and lots of time invested. I only play for about an hour or two max at a time, but I can take it easy, or go hard on trying to get missions accomplished, or just roam around and see what I run across. This type of game to me is a great value, because you end up playing it a lot. There are some quirks and it can get frustrating as some missions aren’t exactly clear on what you’re supposed to do, but overall, I like t a lot more than I thought I would have.

    Impressive in 4K HDR

    I've been a Far Cry fan since Far Cry 2, which came out almost 10 years ago. Far Cry has come along ways in those 10 years, but they have also gone backwards in a few aspects. Regardless, Far Cry 5 is a solid installation to the series and has one of the better stories that I can remember. The visuals on this game really showcase what the Xbox One X is capable of. The game looks phenomenal in native 4K and HDR and is definitely the best looking game I've played to date. Ubisoft has been killing it the last few years with their releases, and Far Cry 5 is no different.

    Another great Farcry

    This game takes the familiar Farcry techniques to the next level. hunting, taking over outposts, and randomly generated events are made more engaging with the removal of the minimap on the HUD (yes, seriously). This change keeps your focus away from the monotonous bouncing from one icon to another. Also, despite what other reviewers say about the story and antagonists, I find that the writing and performance are top notch. The game blends religious fanatics and current worldly events to the point where they are not shoving it down your throats.
