Nick Rye, the "King of the Skies" is ready to go - literally - above and beyond, to discover uncharted territories. Once you're stranded on the red planet, your mission is simple: stop the Martian Arachnid invasion and get back home safely.
If you like sci-fi and Hurk, Lost on Mars has a treat for you. There’s a surprising amount to do, tons of aliens to kill, and even some Clutch Nixon challenges. A highly recommended DLC.
A fun adventure with two of the best characters from Far Cry 5, Lost on Mars is a quick jaunt to the Red Planet with more hits than misses.
A pretty standard sci-fi story filled with your standard tropes punches slightly above its weight thanks to a great performance and some okay gameplay. The shooting isn’t anything to write home about, but a few of the weapons provide enough moments that the shortcomings aren’t easy to ignore, but mild enough to put up with. To paraphrase Hurk, sometimes you find yourself somewhere without context and just kind of have to roll with it. When you’re Lost on Mars, it’s really the only way to go.
While this DLC has the kind of silliness I'd like to see the Far Cry series confidently embrace and it mostly sounds good on paper, the end result is bare-bones. Lost on Mars feels like a middle-of-the-road effort when it could've been so much more substantial and imaginative. The premise deserves better.
The marvelous view of Mars did impress me at the beginning, but the dull gameplay and repeated battles ruined it.
Overall, Lost on Mars does have several moments of amusement, and while it might not achieve a true level of greatness it is entertaining enough to warrant a visit to Mars when someone needs a change of scenery from Montana.
Lost on Mars is simply a bad DLC. The weapons feel weak and generical, the fighting is dull and repetitive… Worse, the dialogue is terribly clumsy.
