So by the time Far Cry 5 had arrived after shelling out for the Gold edition (a first for me), my anticipation had reached fever pitch. I'm writing this review a day after completing the campaign with 80% of trophies; allowing it time to digest.
I played this game for about 6 days straight with little reprieve & loved more or less every second of it. Tonally it was just a big departure from its predecessors but was still quantifiably a Far Cry game with familiar mechanics etc. I thought the North American setting was bold but more or less worked, even if the obvious socio-political metaphors didn't quite land as hard as they could have.
For those familiar with the series, it retained many of its best elements. It was big, brash, fun & rewarding. The open-world was beautifully realised, being both graphically stunning & teeming with life & activity. The side missions were a marked improvement over previous installments as they actually had context & story-driven elements. I found the main campaign initially compelling, the antagonists & secondary characters enjoyable & the gameplay itself to be addictive. So why didn't I love it enough to give it 5?
The game was excellent, don't get me wrong. I'd recommend it to anyone. However, some aspects of it have left me feeling somewhat dissatisfied.
I thought the setting & inclusion of a pseudo religious cult to be a bold move & one which I was excited to see in action. However, the general motivations of the antagonists as well as their ill-explained religious creed left me wondering exactly what their plans were.
The rarely glimpsed Joseph Seed had the hallmarks of a classic Far Cry villain but for me he lacked the menace of Vaas or the charisma of Pagan Min & his cameo appearances throughout the game accumulated to something that just fell a bit flat. Of the secondary antagonists I found Faith to be the most threatening, haunting & enjoyable.
As much as I enjoyed the wide open world, with its many excellent landmarks, I didn't find the different regions distinctive enough to be as memorable as they could have been; though I understand this is difficult when the entire setting of the game is in one valley of one county.
I won't spoil it at all, but the endings were utter dross & completely undid my desire to overlook some of the weaker elements of the game. I know others may feel differently.
I'll come to my final qualm: the mute protagonist. Why? Why oh why oh why? I just don't get it. Yes, there was customisable gender but surely it couldn't have constrained the budget that much to record two sets of the same dialogue. I kept thinking to myself, "This does feel like Far Cry but something is missing", and it was that.
To go from Jason Brodie & Ajay Ghale - whose personal journeys were woven into their installments - to then become this mute, forgettable generic deputy with no emotional stake in the story & absolutely no input on the events surrounding them just feels like terrible judgement on the part of the developers. I cannot stress enough how much I hated this aspect of the game. It left what could have been my favourite of the series feeling hollow & impersonal which is a genuine shame.
All the same, I did genuinely love this game. Loved playing it & loved thinking about it when I wasn't playing it. It had most of the classic hallmarks of what has made Far Cry one of my all-time favourite game series, with a few exceptions.
I only go so far into detail about my dislikes of this game because I loved it so much that I wanted it to be that bit better. All in all, it was a great experience, a game I'd recommend & I cannot wait to get torn into the DLC & arcade mode.
Graphics are brilliant and there are some interesting new additions such as having a 3D map display and for the first time, useful aerial vehicles such as helicopters and planes.
The story mode/campaign is interesting and engaging too. I would definitely reccomend this game.
The story is ludicrous, so if you’re massively into clever well constructed stories in your game then you’ll be disappointed. The game structure where occasionally you’re forced to play out of context missions to ‘get to know the mini bosses better’ are irritating and jar with the continuity of the main game. Dull, cut and paste villains and a mind-bogglingly awful ending also make an unwelcome appearance. The driving still sucks.
So overall more of the same Far Cry experience’ worth a look but don’t believe the hype; this isn’t a 5* experience.
Developers have done some updates, but so far not nerfed anything too much. If anything the animals(hare/ducks) don't spawn at all, which is strange. They've also yet to implement a NewGame+ feature.
