This probably one of the worst game i completed recently
I have been eyeing on far cry series for a while, I mean what not to like about it. Usually have fun open world which give you tons of option of way to play the game. As fan of clearing map marker, as long as it fun, i will 100% it.
The story began where you in military team was instructed to arrest a cult leader. Turned out, it will become bad things as fanatic rushing around to stop you from taking their leader. As the story move forward, you will have 3 major regions, each with its own villain that you need to tackle. The large open world are full of trees & wild-life, but my favourite is definitely how easy for you to just drive an helicopter or a plane to move around. The NPC that become your ally is super awesome, and some of them even powerful enough to take down an output.
Lets just say I have major disappointment with the game. First, the game feel like streamlined too much than previous games. If last time you have reason to hunt animals or specialized in any specific playstyle, now you pretty much unlock everything. Despite it give you skill reward for doing various challenges or clear specific secret area, at end of the game I already unlocked all skill I needed and dont need it anymore. The worst part of the game is definitely the story, I dont care about any villains who keep spewing random bullshit. It have one of the worst ending ever.
I dont recommend this, in fact I dunno if i can continue playing the DLC or the spin off. I dunno if because Im jaded or Im expecting too much, but never I feel disgust before and want to stay away when playing this. Difficulty curve is also freaking terrible.
First DLC done, it is simple short addon set in Vietnam jungle. You move taking down camp to camp with new feature of calling airstrike. The new mechanic also emphasize on stealth takedown, but generally I just use powerful ally to takedown enemy. My only issue is difficulty spike at the end, where you need to defend landing zone from horde of enemies. Whole run took 2 hours & half to 100% it.
Finally finish this 2nd Addon. This DLC changed of alot of the game which I though I would enjoy at first, but ended with tons of issues. While I appreciate the return tower parkour, all of the games are just scifi version or should i say discounted destiny. The game on hard difficulty is freaking hard, to a point I raged couple of times. My biggest problem is the story, I dont care much about it and the ending left a very sour taste in mine.
I dunno if I can stomach this game anymore, the DLC i played took 2 1/2 & 5 hours, and final DLC will take 8 hours. I think I will just uninstall it and move to far cry new dawn. Lets hope better game over there. Dont waste your money on far cry 5 and its addon.
