Despite the high praise that the Far Cry series has received, there are some people who are still displeased with the newest release, Far Cry 5. They believe that the game fails to live up to the expectations of the previous installments and instead seems to be just another average shooter.
Characters from the Far Cry series Return
Several characters from the Far Cry series return to Far Cry 5. The first is Pagan Min, who appears in the opening movie. In the film, she congratulates Ajay for his rise to power.
The next character to return is Hurk Drubman, Jr., a redneck party boy who loves high-powered explosives. He has appeared in previous Far Cry games, including Far Cry 3.
Another recurring character is Sharky Boshaw, who has survived the Collapse with his cousin Hurk. He is one of the five Specialists. He also raises Hurk’s son, Blade.
There is no mention of a Silver Dragon in Far Cry 5, but it was present in the melee weapon “Cache Money” treasure hunt. The game will include a competitive multiplayer mode. It will also feature an unknown superfan, described as a blood-soaked rampage.

Other characters from the Far Cry series that return in Far Cry 5 are the Sheriff, Nick Rye, and the Specialist in Prosperity, Kim Rye. Both are caught up in the Eden’s Gate cult. They are forced to build new airplanes in Hope County and are forced to work with Highwaymen.
Missions are pointless
Despite the fact that Far Cry 5 has a lot of great things to say, the story and missions are not up to snuff. The game’s abysmal writing scheme, combined with a lack of direction, leads to a turgid experience.
The game is littered with the same old tropes. The most notable being the ‘big bad’ and the small bumbling protagonists. While these characters aren’t bad, they are also trite, and the plots and plot points are more than predictable. The only redeeming feature is the ‘big bad‘, but it’s a good thing there’s a happy ending. The game also features co-op play, so you and your friends can make a bid for glory as the eponymous protagonists.
While the game is a tad uninspiring, it’s a joy to play through. If you’re not up for the challenge of the main campaign, then the Guns for Hire option is a decent way to enjoy the Far Cry experience on your terms.
Design is modeled on the outposts from previous titles
Throughout the years, the Far Cry series has been renowned for its exotic and unique settings. In this latest entry, Ubisoft Montreal reimagines Hope County in a bright and vibrant way.
In this version, players take the role of a deputy task force member and apprehend the leader of an extremist cult in the name of restoring order to a town in desperate need of help. Then, the survivors are sent to an underground bunker. The end of the world is not yet here, but there’s no denying that tensions are high and resources are low.

While the outposts in previous games are modeled after their counterparts from other titles, the best one to look out for in this latest offering is the new Hope County. Featuring an impressive array of assets, including NPCs and vehicles, the game boasts over 5,000 objects and assets. The game also features an elaborate level editor that allows players to tweak the appearance of each NPC and add more variety to the maps.
The storyline ends abruptly with the tyrannical Min still in power
Unlike the previous Far Cry games, the storyline in Far Cry 5 is not very clear. Basically, you are a rookie law enforcement agent, who is sent to a remote region called Hope County, Montana to help arrest a dangerous religious cult leader. Ultimately, you are forced to fight back against cultists. This time, you will have a different avatar than in previous titles, but the story remains the same.
The game begins with a helicopter crash. You are forced to rescue two hostages, and you are then approached by a man named Joseph Seed. He claims to have captured all of your friends and colleagues in the police department. You are then told that he is looking for a relic.

In the meantime, you will meet with another character, Bhadra, a member of the Golden Path. She will only appear in a few scenes throughout the game. However, you will be able to see her in an awkward, miss-able ending scene.
