Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies
Top Critic Average
Dead Living Zombies practically closes the content for Far Cry 5. From now on, you can only find new levels made by the community in the Arcade Mode. As an individual chapter, I think it doesn't live up to the quality of the main campaign. The first minutes where fun, but the novelty runs out quickly. On the other side, I consider that with the three DLCs you now have a package full of fun and variety that goes from a good main story campaign to extra episodes that take place on Vietnam, Mars and another one fighting zombies.

The final DLC expansion for Far Cry 5 is dead on arrival
With very little going for it, Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies closes out Far Cry 5's Season Pass with a third and final stinker.
Living Dead Zombies, then, is pretty much what you would have expected it to be if you've played Far Cry 5's last two DLCs. Just like its two predecessors, this final piece of DLCs for Ubisoft's massive open world shooter doesn't really leverage the base game's biggest strengths, but it provides a unique flavour of experience of its own. It's a little bit on the shallow side and can be a bit repetitive, but it's definitely not unenjoyable.
It's unfortunate that Ubisoft decided to end with something so weak. The first two DLC were fantastic fun, but Dead Living Zombies fails to be innovative, with a very light coating on top of a glorified Zombie Mode. I honestly don't know how they could have made this better, but I'm sure it was possible. A lackluster end to the season pass trilogy, and to my time with Far Cry 5.
Far Cry 5's latest expansion is a way to spend some time, but it isn't interesting or attractive, does not add much to the franchise and is certainly not worth its price. The best choice for players is to take advantage of the excellent Far Cry 5 and stay away from all the expansions available.

Dead Living Zombies is the worst piece of DLC in the Season Pass yet and throws up more frustrations than fun
And so ends a terrible season pass. As with Lost on Mars, the only redeeming quality with Dead Living Zombies is the silly humor. However, this isn’t enough to get through the low-quality zombie hoards or motivate you to pump bullets into mutation stations. At least it’s all over now. I can delete Far Cry 5 from my hard drive and forget about it just like Ubisoft did judging by the effort put into this DLC.
Dead Living Zombies is interesting DLC. It throws us in the middle of a movie pitch. There's a lot of firepower, a lot of zombies and we need to mow them all down. It's repetitive mindless fun.
