Another review from NoobFeed also cited its “strong performances, impressive visuals, and incredible cutscenes” as its “saving grace.” The game’s setting, Yara, is also described as “super lush and wonderful to explore” by PC Gamer’s Lauren Aitken.

THE BAD

Of course, you can’t please everybody, and Far Cry 6 has its share of bad reviews. The most mentioned of all is how Ubisoft used the same Far Cry element in Far Cry 6, and if you’ve played the previous games, you’ll find this one repetitive and old.

Worthplaying said in its review: “…many of the gameplay elements in this new game are awfully like the versions that were first established in Far Cry 3 and reused with minimal changes in every subsequent game. There’s certainly more than enough content to validate the game as its own, full entry into the series. I wish for a future Far Cry entry that I can play without being able to pick out which things are exactly the same as the previous title.”

Stevivor also said that “everything in Far Cry 6 feels too safe.”
