Ubisoft’s new open world shooter is a true testament to the power of listening to fans and critical feedback, a vast improvement over Far Cry 4 and Far Cry Primal. While the game’s story isn’t exactly brilliant, the sheer amount of hell you can raise, coupled with the addictive arcade mode, are more than enough to guarantee a purchase. Murdering a bunch of lunatics in rural landscapes to the sound of lovely classic rock and country music hasn’t been that good since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas! Far Cry 5 is one of the best games of the year so far, without a doubt.

Far Cry 5 has a lot to do, with many objectives to complete throughout Hope County. The technical issues can lead to a lot of vexing moments and the multiplayer doesn't have enough depth for competitive players to keep playing. Where Far Cry 5 does shine is its excellent cast of characters.
Bill LavoyApr 02, 2018
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.
Jeff GerstmannMar 26, 2018
It seems like a dumb move on the writers' part to shine such a bright spotlight on how inflexible their open-world game actually is, but that's Far Cry 5. A decent video game undermined by bad pacing, weak characters, and a wishy-washy world view. Play it cooperatively with a friend, ignore the characters and their motivations, and you'll probably have a good time.
Cade OnderApr 02, 2018
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.
William SchwartzMar 26, 2018
The ability to do and see it all with a friend makes it even better, and for those that really dig in there’s a ton of online content to consume or create.  Far Cry 5 certainly feels like the biggest game in terms of content and it just might be the best Far Cry game to date.
Mark SherwoodMar 29, 2018
Far Cry 5 is a masterpiece. Ubisoft has refined the core formula and delivered what may well be the best shooter we’ll see this year. The story, writing, and voice acting, remains remarkable throughout. The gameplay is every bit as energetic and chaotic as it ever was, with more depth than ever before. Far Cry 5 is stunning, well designed, and thoroughly engaging.

The biggest thing is the Far Cry Arcade. Here, players can create, upload, and play different maps and scenarios made up by the Far Cry community. These can get pretty creative and challenging. All of which can be played solo or with other people. The tools to create my very own level are here and work really well, and with some time, I know there can be some really impressive creations out there.
Edmond TranApr 03, 2018
Despite some brief irritations and missed opportunities with its narrative, spending time in the world of Hope County remains absolutely delightful. Far Cry 5 boasts a wonderfully harmonious flow to its adventure, with its smart changes to exploration, discovery, and progression distinctly bolstering the enjoyment of creatively engaging and experimenting with its spectacular open world.
April MarieMar 26, 2018
The characters that you meet are varied and engaging. There are tons of things to do and see, and plenty of real and virtual people to experience them with. Most of all, Far Cry 5 tells a story that grabs you by the shirt collar and never lets go. It would make a great addition to anyone's video game library, and you'll almost certainly come back to it after the credits roll.
Leon HurleyMar 26, 2018
Far Cry 5 is a continuation of everything you remember about the series, but an instalment that’s taken a good look at itself, and what it does, to work out the best possible way of doing it. The compact, more streamlined design never feels small and instead comes across as more achievable and event filled. How often have you finished a Far Cry with a ton of missions and bits you never got around to doing? That’s that stuff that’s been paired back. What remains are the best bits - the pure, distilled chaos of the series more manageably portioned and packaged.
Colm AhernMar 26, 2018
In its quieter moments Hope County is a picturesque backdrop to terrific Prepper Stash puzzles, and an over-the-top fantasy playground when the volume is turned up. Taking on Eden's Gate is compelling, horrific, and an awful lot of fun.
Ty ArthurMar 26, 2018
Those bugs hurt the experience, but not by much. Far Cry 5 is one of the few games where you can get into a flamethrower fight, hit a buffalo with a semi truck on the interstate, light a cow on fire and watch it rampage through an enemy base, or blow up a truck with a mortar and then run in and paddle the survivors to death. It's dumb, goofy, wonderful fun, with a smooth balance between action, comedy, and horror.

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.
Richard SeagraveApr 06, 2018
So Far Cry 5 isn't perfect, but it doesn't matter. While you're not likely to remember its story in a few months' time, and the erratic driving of friendly civilians may frequently alarm you, its gameplay shines and that's what's important. Setting you free in a stunningly realised open world, Far Cry 5 gives you all the tools you need for tens of hours of outrageous fun.
Ben KucheraMar 26, 2018
What’s left if you have the stomach to ignore the story? A very enjoyable game with an immense number of things to do, a beautifully recreated portion of the United States, and a collection of missions with wildly varying tones and structure. It’s a finely tuned open-world game stapled onto a story that’s insultingly bad.
Richard WalkerMar 26, 2018
From its tense opening to its blistering conclusion, Far Cry 5 is another cracking instalment in the series, streamlining some of the hunting elements and putting co-op up front for both the campaign and the bottomless Far Cry Arcade. The narrative and characters will live on in the memory once you're done and dusted too, as will the insane random minute-to-minute moments that always succeed in making Far Cry so unique.
Steve FarrellyMar 26, 2018
It’s a game whose game-world is designed for you to love and adore, to become intimate and at one with; to be equally terrified of. This is videogames, after all, and that is at the fore of design here. Yeah, the Seeds are ‘bad seeds’, but that’s kind of the joke, right? Of course there are people out there capable of being this horrendous, but could we ever face them and have this much fun? I’d argue no, and it’s in that no that Ubisoft has delivered us a perfect YES.

Ahora, después de haberlo jugado del derecho y del revés, de haber olfateado con ansia hasta en sus partes menos expuestas y de haber mantenido ojos y oídos abiertos ante cada estímulo, pudo decir sin que me tiemble la voz que Far Cry 5, para bien o para mal, sigue siendo lo de siempre.
Rodrigo MuñozalteaMar 30, 2018
Far Cry 5 es un gran regreso de esta franquicia que llevaba varios años intentando volver a su época dorada y es un título muy recomendable para novatos de la franquicia y para veteranos que han jugado cada una de las entregas.

Far Cry 5 es un gran juego, que consigue ofrecer una buena campaña con una gran historia, muchísima libertad y montones de cosas que hacer, sin olvidarse de la faceta multijugador gracias a la posibilidad de jugar en cooperativo la totalidad de la historia. A esto hay que añadir Far Cry Arcade que, si funciona entre la comunidad, podrá ampliar la vida del juego más allá de lo esperado.
Álvaro CastellanoMar 26, 2018
Far Cry 5 es un muy buen exponente de lo que quiere conseguir la saga shooter y, seguramente, también de hacia dónde quiere dirigirse. El nuevo videojuego de la serie se hace fuerte en todos los elementos que caracterizan a la marca y, aunque no arriesga demasiado en sus ideas, logra un resultado muy bueno.

Jorge CanoMar 26, 2018
Far Cry 5 nos ha encantado. Con una fórmula que a base de pulir y mejorar sigue funcionando igual de bien que hace seis años, pero con más posibilidades jugables que nunca, con los contenidos más elaborados y cuidados de toda la serie, y con una ambientación realmente atractiva y diferente dentro de la saga, que da mucho juego para proponer todo tipo de situaciones y personajes tan divertidos como sorprendentes.

In Far Cry 5 würde ich gerne Urlaub machen. Zumindest, wenn sich dort nicht unzählige religiöse Spinner gegenseitig über den Haufen schießen. Dank des fiktiven Montana würde ich mich wahrscheinlich mindestens genauso schwer in das reale verlieben. Vor allem, wenn ich mich dort so sehr zu Luft, zu Land und zu Wasser austoben dürfte.
Mathias OertelMar 29, 2018
Schafft es Ubisoft nach den Fortschritten bei Watch Dogs und Assassin’s Creed, auch die Far-Cry-Serie aufzuwerten? Oder hat man ähnlich wie bei Ghost Recon Wildlands eher “unglückliche” Design-Entscheidungen getroffen? Obwohl man unter dem Strich besser dasteht als beim Ausflug der Elite-Soldaten nach Bolivien, ist die Modernisierung nicht gelungen.
Gianni MolinaroMar 26, 2018
Au moment de passer devant son juge suprême, Far Cry 5 a de bonnes raisons de trembler des genoux. Il reste accro aux habitudes de ses aînés (types de missions, rendu, animations, intelligence artificielle et bugs divers), et nonobstant quelques volontés de se différencier, il leur ressemble encore trop dans son ressenti global (rendu, animations, intelligence artificielle, façons d'aborder les missions, progression, bugs qui cassent l'immersion...).
Maxime ChaoMar 27, 2018
Fun, beau et diversifié, Far Cry 5 ne trahit pas l'ADN de la saga, même si, hélas, il laisse tomber les décors exotiques pour une ruralité américaine et contemporaine moins dépaysante. Heureusement, les environnements du Montana savent se montrer séduisants, et même particulièrement impressionnants en certains endroits. Joseph Seed est un méchant charismatique qui fera aisément oublier Pagan Min (mais pas Vaas), tandis que le gameplay plus protéiforme que jamais assure aux joueurs de passer de bons moments.
NoddusMar 27, 2018
Il nous aura fait miroiter un monde ouvert des plus vivants, une histoire marquante et des personnages charismatiques, mais Far Cry 5 a beaucoup de mal à prêcher la bonne parole. La rencontre avec Joseph Seed et les premiers pas dans un Montana vaste et organique offrent une très bonne première impression, mais le tout refroidit au contact du système de progression punitif et peu engageant du jeu.
KaarajMar 26, 2018
À cela, il faut ajouter une intelligence artificielle laborieuse qui commence à accuser le poids des années et des mécaniques de jeux certes excellentes, mais qui semblent déjà avoir atteint leur potentiel maximum. Si le caractère un brin redondant de la formule ne vous gêne pas ou si vous n’avez encore jamais touché un Far Cry, n’hésitez pas, l’épisode garde suffisamment d’atouts pour vous convaincre. Dans le cas contraire, la question de son acquisition peut se poser.

Em suma, Far Cry 5 optou por simplificar muitas das coisas que a série fez anteriormente, em favor de um modelo de progressão claramente virado para o online. Tinha receio que perdesse identidade no processo, mas embora a família Seed não chegue ao nível de outros antagonistas do passado, é uma representação interessante, que mistura momentos de total absurdo e cenas verdadeiramente chocantes, sempre com um toque muito U.S.A. quase sempre muito divertido.
Matteo BussaniMar 26, 2018
Non manca poi la modalità Arcade tutta da scoprire a fronte dell’apporto futuro della community, ma di cui possiamo fin da subito confermare la bontà delle basi.
 Far Cry 5 va a rifinire un’esperienza consolidata, e sicuramente ancora più longeva che in passato, continuando un percorso che non sembra destinato a cessarsi e che ha tutte le carte in tavola per migliorare ancora capitolo dopo capitolo.
Денис МайоровMar 27, 2018
Far Cry 5 — совершенно обыденный, хороший «фаркрай». Здесь есть все, за что серию принято любить, а сверху еще и настоящий кооператив, и невероятные пейзажи — поэтому игру вполне можно считать лучшей в серии. Но ненавистников франшизы новая часть не переубедит, крики про конвейер не стихнут, потому что от классической формулы «пятерка» далеко не уходит. Да, здесь упростили прокачку, убрали муторный крафт и вышки, добавили рыбалку, а охота теперь нужна только для заработка, но в основе-то все еще Far Cry 2.

Самвел СарухановMar 28, 2018
Far Cry 5 — это пример того, как не стоит развивать серию. Вместо того, чтобы перенять и отполировать свои успешные наработки, Ubisoft решила выбросить их в утиль. Пытаясь исправить ошибки прошлых частей, создатели умудрились наделать еще больше новых.
Furkan SakoğluMar 26, 2018
Uzun lafın kısası Far Cry 5, benim son yıllarda açlığını çektiğim açık dünya FPS oyunu ihtiyacına ilaç gibi geldi. Ufak tefek kusurları olsa da, oyun size vaat ettiğini sunmayı başarıyor. Haritanın biraz ufak gibi gözükmesi, animasyonlarda yaşanan sorunlar da olmasa neredeyse kusursuz bir oyun diyebilirdim. Oyunun Co-op tarafını ne yazık deneyimleme fırsatına erişemedim çünkü oyunun inceleme sürümünü oynadığımız için başka bir oyuncuyla karşılaşma ihtimalim çok düşüktü.

Samen vechten met de vele companions in de game is heel tof en kan je flink helpen in je strijd en de introductie van co-op voor het hoofdverhaal is daarnaast ook een enorme aanwinst voor de shooter. Far Cry Arcade is als kers op de taart met de in feite oneindige stroom van single- en multiplayercontent. Far Cry 5 is de hemel voor elke gamer waar het first-person shooter-bloed rijkelijk door de aderen wordt gepompt. Een completer avontuur dan dit ga je niet snel tegenkomen.

Przemykając się w cieniach i krzakach albo otwierając ogień i częstując przeciwników materiałami wybuchowymi. Na plus należy zaliczyć też postać Josepha Seeda, który ma świetne momenty, zwłaszcza pod koniec gry, jednak jest go w niej zbyt mało, by zapadł szczególnie w pamięć. Po jakimś czasie Far Cry 5 staje się też powtarzalny przez ubogość zadań i aktywności pobocznych.
