Reviews Summary

Classic Far Cry
Strong Setting
Too Familiar

Summary: For some, Far Cry: New Dawn's setting, shooter mechanics, and game systems may feel a bit too similar to Far Cry 5, but for those looking for more classic Far Cry, post-apocalypse Hope County will not disappoint.

Ubisoft could've done more to refresh Hope County for Far Cry: New Dawn, but there's still some good, chaotic fun to be had here.

It's Far Cry 5 again, on a smaller scale and with a post-apocalyptic paint job.

An over-familiar follow-up, perhaps, but New Dawn whittles away the rough edges of Far Cry 5 for something extremely enjoyable.

A direct-to-video style sequel to Far Cry 5 that's still perfectly playable but fails to make use of its own premise in any interesting way.
