Welcome to Hope County, Montana. This idyllic location is home to a community of freedom-loving people - and a fanatical doomsday cult known by many as The Project at Eden's Gate. Led by the charismatic prophet Joseph Seed and his devoted siblings, Eden's Gate has been surreptitiously infiltrating all aspects of daily life.
When your arrival incites the cult to violently assume control of the region, you have to rise up ans spark the fires of resistance to liberate the besieged community. Freely explore Hope Couny's rivers, lands and skies with the largest customisable weapon and vehicle roster ever in a Far Cry game. You are the hero of the story in a world that hits back with every strike, and where the places you discover and the locals you team up with will shape your story in ways you will never anticipate.
Far Cry 5 is a relentlessly fun, aggressively varied open world shooter that will keep you hooked for dozens and dozens of hours. The game's world has never felt more alive, brimming with animal ecosystems, serene lakes, and verdant forests, with spectacular scenery just begging to be screenshotted.
It takes the Far Cry blueprint and expands the highlights while changing the sliders on aspects that became overused to craft not only the best Far Cry game, but one of the best open worlds to explore this generation, whether alone or with a little help from a friend (or AI dog).
Far Cry 5 is a bloody laugh. It doesn’t take itself too seriously – but then the series never has. If you’re a fan of the previous games then this is a must buy for your collection; it is bright, noisy and frantic and I wouldn’t have it another way.
Far Cry 5 offers a breathtaking adventure with solid shooting action, a living and appealing world to explore and a convincing bad guy. The addition of co-op is great and Far Cry Arcade makes this a package that every shooter fan must play.
The biggest take away from Far Cry 5 was the fact that it was just pure fun. The missions were both fun and entertaining, the visuals are fantastic, and the shooting is refined and on point. Fans of the series have more than likely already picked this up, but if you remotely enjoy first person shooters, this is a must own. It’s not perfect, but it tries its best to be and you know what? It got close.
This fresh take on the Far Cry franchise is clearly visible content-wise, but a tad more discrete on the style. If you're not bothered by the slightly repetitive formula, you'll enjoy the many strengths of this episode.
Far Cry 5's story is a real let-down, but the action still makes for a solid co-op experience.
