    Re: Far Cry 5 on PC: graphics options revealed

    I really, really hope that Far Cry 5 is going to be good, and not just another "standard" Ubiisoft game like Far Cry 4, which was so incredibly formulaic and well quite simply boring. I am hoping that 5 can return more to the series roots..the original Far Cry was an awesome game and the 2nd was pretty good, then it started going downhill a little with 3 and 4 was just bad.

    Whats encouraging are little nods to PC gamers like being able to put part of your HUD on screen 2 (mini map maybe?) and a better inventory experience - just really hope they invest on making this a good shooter rather than another generic ubisoft open world game.

    Re: Far Cry 5 on PC: graphics options revealed

    Sorry Spud, I disagree. Far Cry 4 was a good game. Just because something is like something else (FC4 being like FC3) doesn't make it bad. A formulaic. To what? Itself? It's a Far Cry game so it had Far Cry gameplay. It's what we want.

    I really enjoyed FC Primal (I even played that before FC4), and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Owl in FC was such a good idea it became a core feature in AssCreed:Origins.

    You can bet your bottom dollar that FC5 will be excellent. And I'm not listening to the naysayers!!

    Re: Far Cry 5 on PC: graphics options revealed

    Each to their own Glad you enoyed it! I found FC4 very bland and boring - clear an outpost, open new area, clear an outpost, open a new area - rinse and repeat. Got very repetitive and the storytelling wasn't great....and I felt it really failed on what the FC series was at least originally known for - great gunplay in large environments, feeling like a survivor but also a badass at the same time

    Sadly done some more reading up and it looks like FC5 will very much be FC4 with some minor updates I'll reserve judgement until I see metacritic though, never know.

    hopefully there`ll be a demo on uplay- in any case i will still be sitting on my hands until the game has `matured`.

    I agree, I couldn't get myself to finish it. It just got too boring after a while, not a bad game though, just too much of the same and really not the greatest story to keep you going.

    It had more of a tedious, work like feeling for me.

    I think this is the mentality across a number of Ubisoft IP's, same with Assassins Creed, Watch Dogs and The Crew.

    Re: Far Cry 5 on PC: graphics options revealed

    The website reviews are fine, but don't trust metacritic as Joe Public doesn't know how to review games. It always "X game is sh1t = 1*". Which is meaningless.
    Still, Far Cry certainly divides people. I do get that some of the design is lacking, but I still enjoyed the gaming.
    Though liberating an outpost to open a new area isn't in FC5. They said the whole gaming area/map is open from the beginning. And the Outposts are now towns and villiages. Liberating them will feel more poignant as people live there, as opposed to some shacks that baddies roamed around.

    Far Cry started going downhill at 3? The Far Cry with the highest user score on metacritic, the highest scoring reviews and by far the most popular in the series? That is the game where they started failing in your eyes?

    It's just my opinion, but I guess you could really say 2 was where the series made it's huge mistake of moving to "open world" type gameplay, but I still enjoyed 2. 3 I really didn't like and 4 was even worse. It's largely because I don't enjoy the majority of "open world" style games, particularly the Ubisoift approach.

    Just my opinion though. I miss the more guided story based shooters that focus on the FPS gameplay rather than trying to be something else and ending up wtih a bit of a mess that take hundreds of hours to "100%".
