The storyline takes place in a fictional era of Montana, where a large portion has been overtaken by a religious cult that have closed off, borders and captured all the towns and forts. Unlike the other games, where you had a distinct male character with back story and dialogue, you get to choose the sex and appearance of your unnamed hero who is only known as “the deputy”and has no speaking roll at all. Unlike the other games where usually you don’t get to see your character (as you’re always in first person mode), whenever your character dies you get to see him or her, and because you occasionally get to see them you can use in game cash to buy outfits or accessories (which really is just vanity and doesn’t add anything to the game like better defense, etc,personally I think this is more focused for having multiplayer or co-op individuality although I haven’t accessed that part and doubt I ever will). Your character has to go around rescuing their workmates, rescuing townspeople with significant positions and trying to build enough of a resistance that you can take back the region and eventually battle the Cult Leader, Joseph Seed. This game adds a new twist with an airborne drug for a flower pollen which can cause your character to get high and hallucinate - but dangerously getting too much of the effects will force your character into an unavoidable mission you need to escape from a bunker or have to go through a long tedious cut scene.
Unlike the previous editions, this game allows you to unlock and use “companions” to take with you as backup throughout the game,and there’s many different characters to use, including three animals. Almost any NPC you rescue or that appears in a fort you’ve claimed can be a companion, but the best are the specialists unlocked through missions. Some of the companions have certain skills, like being good with stealth and long range weapon, some are good with flame throwers, will be a meatshield and take attention away from you or have planes and helicopters they can follow you with. The companion system comes in handy a fair bit, as new to this game, if you happen to die in battle, you can choose to have a companion revive you (or alternatively just give up and respawn nearby (which if you die during a mission, outs you right at the start of it again). Likewise, if a companion dies, they have a large window of time for you to get to them and revive them, they will lie on the ground and cry for help in various ways - this comes in real handy during big shoot outs. The beauty is, you can have two companions at once, and the AI actually programs the game to make them automatically run to and revive each other if either perish during a fight (as long as one isn’t busy fighting to the death that is) so if you have two companions at once,it increases your chances of having one available to revive you . The companion system isn’t without its flaws though, as just like Skyrim they can get your stealth approaches noticed, get in the way and block you in rooms or tunnels for several minutes or sometimes they tend to walk right in front of that perfectly lined sniper shot and will be immediately killed. The trick is picking the right companion for the right job,you can switch them up at any time, but if a companion dies, there’ll be a timer up to count down until he/she can be used again. They also chat away to each other occasionally, killing a bit of monotony.
As with Far Cry 3 and 4, you can use vehicles scattered through the map, and this includes all types of cars, vans, trucks and helicopters,seaplanes, planes and boats. You can buy some, and upgrade a few. Depending on how many seats the vehicle has your companions can accompany you or follow you in other nearby vehicles.
In this game, there are three regions you have to clear to really get to “end game” and each region is controlled by I guess what would be deemed a captain or sub-boss. For each region there is a meter, and any activity you complete in that region like saving hostages, destroying shrines or taking down transport vehicles, etc, add points to the meter. You don’t have to technically clear an entire region before having to fight that boss depending on what you’re doing, but you will find there’s an annoying stage where once you’ve completed enough actions against a region boss that you’ll have bounty hunters out for you who will never be able to completely avoid - once caught you’re forced into a story mission to escape an area, etc and sometimes you end up playing this mission multiple times which gets old quite quick.
It is a lot of fun and some of the storylines are fun - some hilarious NPCs with funny lines, some good soundtracks and some great action will leave you begging for orebut those parts are few and far between. There are built in challenges but I felt unlike Far Cry 3, there weren’t enough hunting challenges, and there aren’t enough plants in the are to make the injectables to find animals easier. Unlike the other games,it isn’t a case of finding the rare animals to make the best holsters or bigger bags, you have to unlock those through perks which are found mostly in prepper areas.
The ending I got was truly breathtaking and had me speechless (I won’t spoil it), but as I understand it, there are two or three actual endings, and I got the one that is considered to be the “proper” ending supposedly.
Other than that, lots of guns and weapons to choose from,a few melee types,a few different enemy types, but it’s nothing you won’t have seen before. This game has a rather easy fishing game that loses its novelty quite quickly other than to complete challenges.
One boon,if you get a season pass, you’ll get Far Cry 3 on your PS4 for free, it’s worth mentioning. Other than that, it’s playable and it’s worth having if you like the franchise and need a long game to while away many hours.
The arcade multiplayer is fun but is below triple A game standards in my opinion; I didn't play Far Cry for this. But if you want the platinum trophy you have to.
Ubisoft have created a main game to a very high standard and it doesn't feel tired at all. Awesome achievement.
This game builds nicely on the series, a new area, different terrain style of map, similar idea of an area with a "leader" with a stronghold. New features with man's best friend.
First of the series I have on PS4, rather than PC. Graphics are good on my 55" TV. Gameplay is good, if not challenging in places to start with.
Would recommend and a great game for jumping in at any point in the series as there is not follow on story.
