The Far Cry franchise has taken players worldwide for action-packed adventures, from Montana’s wilderness to the frozen heights of the Himalayas. The Far Cry is well known for providing a huge, open-world playground where players compete against a powerful adversary.
While the game’s serious narrative sometimes clashes with goofy side activities and characters, Far Cry’s game-worlds are unique, with some of the craziest characters you’ll ever encounter.
Who could forget Far Cry 3 ‘s Dr. Earnhardt, who took over Jason Brody’s body to become Smuggler, or the many deceased political leaders that can be resurrected as allies in Far Cry 5?
From start to finish, the action in Far Cry 6 is nonstop and thrilling. Many primary objectives revolve around infiltrating enemy-controlled territory to weaken the tyrannical dictator Antón Castillo, who rules over Yara, a fabricated Caribbean nation. Far Cry 6 offers many ways to take down the current government. You can blow up their fuel tanks, burn down their plantations, or kill high-value targets.
The game lets you play your way, as it always has. I quickly strung together headshots with my suppressed rifle as I roamed an area undetected because of the strong shooting mechanics. The solid gunplay performs well in the confusion of a firefight if I make a mistake and the enemy senses my presence.
You may approach any encounter however you choose, but the A.I. occasionally thwarts your plans. Enemies have ignored nearby dead bodies on occasion, while they seemed to have had a seemingly supernatural sense of my presence at other times. When taken together with uneven difficulty bumps and occasionally punishing checkpoints, these variances create annoying moments in an otherwise excellent game.
The story in Far Cry 6 starts with a big fight. You have a ticket to get out of Yara, but things go bad, and you join the resistance. As a member of Libertad, your job is to recruit other guerrillas, and one day, you can take down the dictator from Yara. Your character is someone who believes in the cause and believes that they might not make it out alive. However, there are a few times where your comrades may fight over how to keep going – sometimes, you need to resort to violence before they “get it.”
The story doesn’t match Far Cry’s badass, the cold-blooded protagonist from previous games. While you’re still playing an action hero, your character in 6 is less of a sociopathic murderer than the game’s predecessors.
While Far Cry 6 starts with an epic opening mission, it, unfortunately, slows down after that. The main quest line begins to feel like filler for several hours between the memorable set pieces and moments of open.
Far Cry 6 is an open-world action game from start to finish. The primary narrative is thrilling, and I never came across a scarcity of additional content to enjoy. Far Cry 6 isn’t exactly breaking new ground in terms of innovation, but it does a better job than any previous entry following the franchise’s style.
