    Another reason why I don't listen to "professional" reviews. I mean it's mostly good but there's a lot of criticism I don't understand/don't experience myself. Ubi took this game to it's max potential, every detail of the guns and gear is layered with depth, major customizability potential now aligned with with AC or GR, and very well programmed/designed overall. Ubi always makes great and beautiful games that function well right out the gate (imagine if CDPR or Activision tried to make this game? It would be half finished by launch, which is the new norm of even major game companies). Keep up the good work.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    That's great that your game is performing well, and you like it!

    Your claims are utterly false and laughable though (assuming you're not deliberately trolling). All one has to do is casually peruse the Player Support Forum to see FC6 has any number of cross and platform specific issues which will likely require multiple patches to fix. And, anyone with an even rudimentary awareness of Ubi's game release history since 2012 knows it's not at all unusual to see their titles released in an arguably BETA state that requires 6-10 patches over several months to fix.

    I agree generally about the professional reviews. I don't necessarily ignore them, they can a lot of times identify issues and problems that players should be aware of. For that, they are often useful.

    However... many of these reviews are done by people who may not have an intimate first hand knowledge of the game and it's prequals. Or done by you tube channel holders who are driven to kick out reviews. They may not be hard core fans.

    And the reason that is important is that sometimes in a game there may be fine and subtle points that add positively to the experience, and many of these reviewers may miss them because they haven't played the series a ton.

    So I guess what I am saying is that because of the way you tube monetization works we will naturally see more of the obvious and less of the nuance. But both are important.

    Yep, best yet for me.

    (a couple of annoying bugs, but they'll resolve - or I'll get used to them)

    Obviously you didn't play GR Breakpoint at release.

    I think it's a good step forward in the series. Not PERFECT!!! But it has added some new features and very much still feels like a Far Cry game. Lots of people panic when things change, and reviews in general are useless today because everyone is a critic. The addition of gear is a positive for me, being able to have pieces that fit your playstyle. The addition of perks for your Amigos, is also a nice feature. Ammo types, are ok, I use 3 AP, and one smg for soft target ammo, and it is working quite well. Being able to change out weapons in the field, instead if having to visit a safe house has also been a good addition. I have had good performance also on a 2080ti, I9-9900, and 32GBram. Solid frame rates with great visuals. Overall, I am very happy with FC6!!

    @ace7492 You can change out weapons in the field, but to load different ammo...you need a workbench. Makes total sense.

    If it wasn't for your first post, I would have though you were being sarcastic.

    @sleezure So I get your point. And it is a valid point. But I will say that trying to have a video game make (total sense) in any way, is maybe expecting too much. Although it isnt ideal, you can have multiple guns setup, with multiple types of ammo and have them at the ready.

    I totally agree that this is the best Far Cry yet: from the weapons to the characters, it's all really well made! I love the fluidity of the different animals as well -- they feel more alive and real - compared to other Ubisoft games (minus the horses that can act out and become literal tanks: wrecking everything around it lol.)

    They did a good job with this game for sure.

    Also, in regards to CDPR, let's not count them out just yet haha; they've made fantastic games in the past and they're working hard to fix their recent game.
