Whether it’s a top game or not, that’s not really the message I wanted to convey. I just wanted to point out that the last two Far Cry games were of an unprecedented low level, just like the last game The Settlers for that matter. And that Ghostwire is next level anyway. Here is a comment that describes Far Cry 5 well:
I am okay. In what little I’ve played (I have a bug where it’s constantly dark), I’ve been shocked at what’s going on in the world. As soon as I got off the first little island, which was fine. I encountered 2 bad guy trucks, fighting another group of people. While deer and bears are also in the middle. I thought that was a really cool moment. I didn’t realize that, it…was going to be every 30 seconds of the game.
I also can’t understand all the praise for it. I have played all Far Cry games and this is the worst for me personally. I really enjoyed the last one. Primal was fantastic. But it’s more of a comedy with everything going on. Hard enough to immerse yourself in the world when the world itself is completely ridiculous. They could have called this game, Bears, Wolves and Guys. Because that’s all, all the time.
Whereas with Ghostwire you’ll see a lot of people saying the game looks photo-realistic when using ray tracing on the highest setting. And you also see a lot of people saying it’s a graphically stunning game. There are also people who think it could become a cult classic: https://www.denofgeek.com…view-cult-classic-horror/
Whereas in Far Cry you see the most loyal fans have to admit that the game is qualitatively worthless: https://www.finder.com.au…de-edens-gate-film-review
There’s really only one memorable scene, but even that requires a huge leap of faith from the audience to accept why one of the leads is buying Seed’s particular brand of BS.
