Very Boring not much of a story line main villain is very boring not much to explore. Too easy to complete not enough gameplay time or levels in the game.

Far Cry 5 is another wide-open playground with all the necessary ingredients for causing a real ruckus: loads of enemies and allies, temperamental wildlife, and plenty of explosions. Amidst all the insanity it manages to tell a serious story with respectable characters and a powerful ending, though it’s not the most memorable in the series. The successful transition from exotic locales to America’s backyard makes me excited to see where the Far Cry formula goes next.
At the same time, Far Cry 5 met all my expectations for exciting combat and hilarious moments. Whether grappling from my helicopter because a random NPC jacked it, or hearing Adelaide discuss why she stocked up on olive oil before Eden’s Gate took over, there were more moments of hilarity and brilliance than not.
They gave us a world filled with opportunities but chose not to capitalize on any of them for themselves, opting to hope players will distract themselves with the meaty gameplay and craft their own stories of merit. Far Cry 5’s not a bad game, it’s just a disappointing one with squandered potential.
