Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Far Cry 5 is Far Cry at its best. While the narrative can be over-the-top and somewhat lacking, Hope County provides a beautiful setting and fresh gameplay for fans of the series.

A big, beautiful, chaotic canvas of freeform destruction, Far Cry 5 continues the series' best traditions.

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 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.

A polished and refined instalment that values your time more than the previous games and keeps the focus on entertaining you throughout.

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

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.
