Far Cry 5 - Hope springs eternal


#1059

That could work, done well.


#1060

Now this seems interesting…

I need Vats in far Cry!


#1061

Exactly what I hoped it would…n’t be. Yet another reskin.

Borderlands 3, are you here? I think somebody want to eat your sandwitch

So regarding Far Cry 5…

Main game is worth it, but story is disappointing. Skip all the DLC?

@Jason_McMaster I know you streamed a lot of this, I needs your opinion.


#1066

I never played much DLC, but I love the main game.


#1067

The main game was great. The DLC was mediocre, but I’ll give Ubi credit for trying different things with it. Unfortunately, none of it was very good.


#1068

Thirded here. Main game good, Viet Nam DLC ok-to-meh, other two DLCs just complete bollocks.


#1069

Main game only then! Thanks @Jason_McMaster @Telefrog @scharmers

I’m an apologist for the sci-fi DLC and the Vietnam DLC. I think they’re both distinct types of experience with their own sense of style, pacing, progression, and risk. The sci-fi stuff even has its own cool traversal mechanics with the jet pack and how it interacts with the terrain and combat.

The zombie stuff, however, was junk. And I say that as someone with a very high threshold for zombie stuff that’s junk.

I have hundreds of hours in FC3, FC4, and FCP.

FC5 is the worst FC ever. Even without the shitty plot and Bliss bullshit? Still worst FC ever.


#1072

Ooh, can I play Rank the Far Cries? Because for me, it’s Far Cry 2 is best, Far Cry 5 is second best, and frankly I couldn’t care less about any of the others. I’m pretty stoked for Far Cry 5: Apocalypse Montana.

-Tom

P.S. I keep forgetting Far Cry Primal is a Far Cry game, even though it’s right there in the title. But it turned out pretty good once it got a survival mode jammed into it.


#1073

Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Assassin’s Creed: Origins? Both better Far Cry’s than FC5.


#1074

Definitely this. Playing Wildlands with friends was 100 times more fun than anything I did alone in FC5. But I’m one of those who think the FC formula has become incredible stale.


#1075

But was that because you were playing with friends, or the game?


#1076

Both, I guess. There are tons of co-op games that are bad, but the Ubisoft formula didn’t feel as stale when I played Wildlands with friends.


#1077

My ranking would be Far Cry 2 (at the time, not sure it holds up as well today and I did try to play it a few months ago with less than stellar results), Far Cry 4 (loved it for some reason), Far Cry 5 (great environment and gunplay, arty and ambitious if horribly flawed ending, terrible story otherwise), Primal, Far Cry 1 (until the sci-fi stuff), and bringing up the rear Far Cry 3 (um, no redeeming features that I can remember).


#1078

I can’t understand this. Virtually every shooter has better “gunplay” than FC5. I picked up Titanfall 2 right after I finished FC5 and the gunplay in that blew me away. They felt so much better, more satisfying, with much better sounds. FC5 is flat, boring. The bow is also useless – a cardinal sin for FC.

I also don’t understand how you could rank FC4 first/second but FC3 last when they’re basically the same game.
