FAR CRY 5
Far Cry 5: don’t cry for the previous versions, better try this!16
By saying "Far Cry" we always consider a quality shooter in a beautiful open world with a simple, though exciting storyline. Far Cry 5 again did not betray our expectations. This time we will go to a picturesque place, County Hope in Montana - northern state on the border with Canada. The protagonist will continue to resist the superior enemy in a spacious open world. This action-adventure first-person shooter will bring you a spectacular action experience.
Graphics — 5/5
The visual performance of Far Cry 5 deserves to be named brilliant. The nature of virtual Montana hits the heart. Coniferous forests are perfectly combined with well-maintained farms, pastures and tiny towns, creating an incredibly cozy, warm atmosphere. Even despite the happening chaos. And the matter is not a technology, but the scrupulous manual work of game authors. Ubisoft for all these years learned to make decent open worlds. The finest elaboration here in everything - from natural species to interiors and the installation of street lamps.
Gameplay — 4.5/5
The game takes place in Hope County, Montana. Here, in the middle of idyllic lakes and mountains, a real hell is going on: the cultists have seized cities and settlements. Their leader, Joseph Sid, calls himself Father and believes that soon life on Earth will come to an end.
You, as a player, take the role of “The Deputy” who has been sent to the Hope County along with a task force to arrest Seed. There is also a recruitment feature in the game which allows you to recruit people for help.
Not only the number of antagonists but also the characters in general increased: it's like a full-fledged RPG, Far Cry 5 is crammed with all sorts of heroes, with whom you can meet and make friends. Never before in the game of the series were there so many characters.
Despite numerous changes and innovations, the game remains the same shooter in the open world. This means that fans of the genre will be satisfied. The successful formula has remained the same: create chaos, kill villains in any possible way and, most importantly, survive. You can play individually, or in a co-operative mode, that lets you play the game with your friends.
Controls — 4.5/5
The basic movement controls remain the same as in all previous versions and similar games. Use the left and right stick on your PS4 controller to control the movements, R2 to shoot, and so on. The controls change when you are on foot, in land/water vehicle, plane and the helicopter. You have to spend some time learning to possess all the combinations needed.
Replay Value — 5/5
Far Cry 5 arcade features make the replay value extremely high. There are thousands of new levels created by the players. They enrich the gaming experience with the new senses and sensations. Players can create multiplayer maps, explore the open world and, on the whole, spend hours on the game without getting into the monotonous zone.
Far Cry 5 will please fans of the series with an intensity of gameplay and a competent choice of the region where the story unfolds. The abundance of side quests, activities, as well as the opportunity to go through the game together with friends, make the game attractive to sandbox genre fans. In Far Cry 5, you can really spend more than a dozen hours just exploring the spacious open world, admiring the traced graphics of this virtual world.
All Far Cry fans and sandbox adherents should not miss Far Cry 5. This is a decent title for your collection.
Pros : Arcade mode with different maps and missions
