Farcry 5 is an Open world action-adventure first-person shooter game published by Ubisoft and developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto. We have been fans of the beloved game series from Ubisoft from the start. So let’s have a look at what farcry5 has to offer.

Reborngamers Review :

The story of this game takes place in fictional Hope County, Montana, USA. The game starts as the player a Deputy Sheriff of the government on your way with other authorities to Issue a warrant of arrest of the cult Leader Joseph Seed AKA “The Father”. Joseph Reed is the villain who runs a religious doomsday Cult called Eden’s gate, and their followers are named “ Peggies”. You fail miserably and your friends are caught by the enemy and their whereabouts unknown. Now the player has to join the resistance and try to liberate Hope county from the fanatics.

Hope County, Montana is big, it's beautiful and most importantly its fun. The formula used by Ubisoft in FarCry games are in this game too but with satisfying modifications. They are trying to move the franchise from the old formula. The capturing of territories or liberating bases are there in this game, but the climbing of towers have been removed which is good for the game. The player will discover missions and activities when you happen to cross over them, or when meeting a character which will send you in the right direction. The game is much more engaging in this way rather the tiresome tower climbing. It feels much more organic.

Farcry5 Review

The Basics: Rescue and Recruit people for your cause, Liberate outposts, Do main missions and side missions.It's all present in this game, but the interesting thing about the game is how they have cleverly implemented the formula into the game. It is much more engaging when you're constantly thrown back into the action without you having time to take a deep breath. The mission design is excellent in this game. You liberate an outpost, and now you see a Cult convoy passing through, you chase them and kill them, you can see a  cult silo nearby. There is so much to do in this game.

Let's get into the World Map. As previously said its big, but denser than previous games. The regions of the map are controlled by the Joseph seed’s 3 siblings Faith, John, and Jacob Seed. It’s a good addition to the game where the players have to face these three Herald Bosses. The interesting and engaging thing for the player is total freedom to do whatever they want. There is no forced path for the player that the game dictates, you can hit an outpost on John’s region and immediately go to faith’s region to rescue a hostage.This system makes the players independent and enjoys the game to its maximum.

The map has a lot to offer to the player, its nearly 40 missions, 7 outposts and cult properties to destroy.By doing main missions and side activities the player gains resistance points for the regions, Once you have reached the threshold you get access to kill the herald bosses which takes you one step closer to Joseph seed“The Father”.You can also recruit specialists from the regions once you have completed specific tasks.

Speaking of recruitment, Farcry 5 has the most interesting aspects about companions. You can recruit civilians into your resistance these recruits can level up and learn new abilities. The more powerful recruits are the specialists from the regions. Animal Companions like Boomer and Peaches are exciting, Boomer can sniff out enemies and attack them whereas peaches a Cougar is more stealth attacker. Most importantly they can revive you when you are down, So if you see a downed ally go revive them immediately to give yourself more assistance.We absolutely loved the way Ubisoft has implemented this ally system into the game.

Combat is more satisfying in this installment, A good amount of variety in weapons, with Limited Ammo and Med Kits and unpredictable enemies, makes Farcry 5 much more intense and thrilling. Vehicle collection is also an interesting fact in farcry5. It's really impressive with all the vehicles the game has to offer for the player to traverse the beautiful open world. The side activities like fishing, hunting, crafting are immense fun and have been perfected. Stealth is a good way to approach outposts and bases, taking down 3 to 4 enemies and beginning the assault is more fun than running in guns blazing.

As usual, Good things are done and let's move to the bad ones. The depth of the story lacks highly in farcry5. When a game revolves around religious beliefs there is a delicate balance to withhold. The game does a decent job in it but sometimes felt a little disturbing with the crucifixions you can see in your travels. Considering the fact the Cult is dedicated fanatics whose beliefs oppose drugs, you can see the majority of the enemies charging towards you in the influence of a drug called “Bliss”. There is absolutely no need for the drug to be implemented into the game. The game’s AI enemies lack in variety. There is no real history of the character the players play. All throughout the game you are called Rookie or Deputy, Is it hard to name a playable character Ubisoft? Character Creation for a character who doesn’t have a name “Funny”. The weak story and bland characters are the real enemies of Farcry5.

Verdict:

 A Refreshing game from the farcry franchise. The amazing individual features clustered into one Awesome game. With all its amazing aspects it still needs a little push to make it the best in the series. A game which is really fun and an excellent Farcry.
