Far Cry 6 Review :
Welcome to Game Review this is often more of an informational Post about all or any more details of and Far Cry 6 what we all know so far.
Today we are going to look at Far Cry 6, The heart of a modern-day gorilla revolution taking place in Yara. Frozen in time for more than 50 years this isolated Caribbean island is now controlled by a ruthless dictator and self-proclaimed leader of the true Yarans el Presidente Anton Castillo.
Far Cry 6 Review: You play as Danny male or female it’s up to you to decide a young military dropout whose only desire is to flee this island but after a series of unexpected events, Danny will find themselves swept up in a guerrilla movement called the Libertad that will shape the future of this country. Yara itself is a beautiful tropical paradise diverse in its biomes wildlife and its people the island is layered with a rich history law and culture which is told through exploration and the narrative itself.
The main antagonist of this game, Anton Castillo whose family once controlled Yara was elected with a promise to return the nation to its former glory he represents a dramatic shift for the island’s nation and the rise of intense nationalism and he wants to take Yara back 50 years to when his father was in power. Anton, he’s very brutal in his methods he fundamentally believes everything he does is for the greater good no matter how dark and sinister it might be the truly believe and he wants to save his country and he will do it as efficiently as possible.
He loves his son so much and he wants to give Diego the future that he was denied in many ways he is a powerful but broken man doing what he believes with his own twisted logic is right now. Diego Anton’s son has been groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps and one day leave Yara taught from childhood that Yara was his birthright he feels an obligation to his father and his country but Diego is more complex he’s not a monster and he’s not a victim he’s a teenager who’s defiant rebellious intelligent and just lost.
I won’t go into the story any more than this but I will say it is an incredible ride and you will enjoy it the entire way through like with most far cry games and any open-world games there is always going to be a sense of urgency with the plot itself but sometimes that urgency can get lost because you spent hours going around hunting collecting treasures fishing and just having a grand old time. So there were some times where the plot itself kind of faltered a little bit due to the way the open-world structure is weaved into the game but I can’t really fault it because that’s a problem most open-world games suffer from.
Far Cry 6 Review: When you start the game you’ll begin on a small little island you’ll learn the basics of the game the controls, how it works, find treasures, explore everything, and just figure out how you’re going to be playing this game move forward then once you’re free of the islands and you can tackle the open-world map, wow this map is huge there are so many things littered to see and do throughout this island the amount of variety in the landscapes and locales are quite surprising it does suffer though from the kind of bloated Ubisoft style game where you open a map and you see a bazillion icons everywhere it can be overwhelming if you like that kind of game if you like going through and ticking off all the boxes finding everything on the map you’re gonna have a great time.
If that stuff overwhelms you don’t worry about it too much just play the story just go straight through the story do some side content here and there then once you’ve finished the game go back and unlock everything.
One big thing you’ll be doing a lot is using the workbench now at the workbench you can customize all your weapons and you can use different types of ammo there are standard rounds soft target rounds that do extra damage to unarmed targets armor-piercing rounds, poison rounds, blast rounds, and incendiary rounds. If you just want to set things on fire you can add mods to your weapons you can change how they control how they feel how they look and you can give each weapon you find your own perfect touch and there are some unique weapons that you’ll find out there that you cannot change at all.
Another big change far cry 6 does not have a talent tree or a skill tree whatever you want to call it where you level up and you unlock talents and traits for your character instead of in this game all those kind of traits and skills and talents are linked to your gear maybe you’ll find some boots that make you sprint faster maybe you’ll find a heavy vest that makes you take 40 percent less damage from bullets maybe you’ll find mitts that whenever you get put on fire the fires are already putout automatically without you doing anything maybe you’ll find some shorts that make you better at swinging a baseball bat.
Some of these don’t really make sense but I like the variety I like how you can chop and change however you want to you don’t have to be tied down to a skill tree but it does feel a little restrictive at times because you’re just limited to the five pieces of gear that you can wear at one time but it is kind of cool if you approach a camp and you’re like right I need to go stealthily in this let me quickly change my outfit to put on something that will make steal thing easier so you can stealth all the way through the camp as easily as you can without having to need to go through lent trees or anything.
Far Cry 6 Review: When you explore the islands is the gorilla paths that are laid out are highlighted in blue across the map there are secret paths that are spread across the islands and they’ll let you navigate safely from Anton’s regime these paths might highlight secret cases alternative routes and so much more. There are a lot of vehicles and there’s a whole heap of cars that you can drive around in there are horses there are mountain turrets you can get on your car quite early on in the game and it’s quite a blast just to drive through Yara on a bike ride on a horse and just have fun but most of the time going on foot looking at the world around you breathing it all in taking it all in looking at the landscape I find so much more enjoyable.
There are amigos in the game that you’ll find and unlock I’m sure you’ve all seen guapo the alligator that wears a cute little jumper and toritzo and the little sausage dog in a wheelchair. They’re really great there are seven more and I didn’t get into more detail I’m not going to spoil them at all but so is really great because he’s able to use his irresistible cute charm to distract enemies but Guapo passively recovers health while in combat and can self-revive he is a machine.
The controls feel fantastic everything’s smooth it runs so smoothly on the PlayStation 5. Smooth as butter frame rate it looks gorgeous and there’s a photo mode you can hunt mythic animals, fight, play dominoes, pet, and feed animals. You can do so many things you will never get bored playing far cry 6. I had a great time playing it you’ll easily sink over 100 hours into this game if you’re wanting to go through and collect everything there is and do everything there is to do. This game will be released on Oct 7th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and S. That’s it guys and I hope you enjoy this Far Cry game. If you like this review please comment below section.
