Despite bringing a few new mechanics to the table, Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness is a lesser experience when compared to the base game in every possible way. Its story is almost non-existent, the open world is completely generic, and with a fair few features from the original experience missing, it all feels like a step back. The core of what makes this a Far Cry game is still present, but you were probably already tired of that long ago.

As a whole, Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness feels like one big misstep. The lack of any real story, unique quests, or new gameplay ideas drags the whole experience down. The only real new feature is way too easy to exploit and isn’t even hugely interesting in the first place. Also, the whole thing is over in less than three hours. There are indeed some dark hours, and most of them were spent playing this game.

Handsomely made and boasting Ubisoft’s usual lofty standard of audiovisual presentation, there were great stories that they could have told here but instead players find themselves forced into all too familiar territory where unique mechanics and compelling and engaging characters give way to a cut and paste of Far Cry’s long established busywork. Here’s hoping that the future Far Cry 5 single player expansion packs are braver than this.
