Far Cry 5
Top Critic Average
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.
The familiar fun and open world chaos of the Far Cry series continues, occasionally hampered by scripted missions.
Make Montana emergent again
A polished and refined instalment that values your time more than the previous games and keeps the focus on entertaining you throughout.
The best Far Cry yet and one of the best open world shooters of any kind, with an impressive variety of missions and non-linear structure.
Virtually everything about Far Cry 5 is thoroughly okay. For a series that has provided so many thrills and surprises, that's a major disappointment
With smart changes to exploration, discovery, and progression, Far Cry 5 makes engaging and experimenting with its gorgeous open world more exciting than ever.
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.
Far Cry 5's story is a real let-down, but the action still makes for a solid co-op experience.
