Broke my own rule and per-ordered this game. Enjoyed the last few Far cry games and figured we're due for a good one with this much time to develop.
I was wrong.
The AI is absolutely terrible. Enemies are now bullet sponges with health bars that never seem to miss you once alerted and take ten shots to the
head to kill unless you have the "right" ammo and it takes you out of the immersion of the game to simply annoy you.
It's hard to understand how they got so much right but the core part of game play so wrong. $100 for season pass, I'm looking forward to FC3 Blood
Dragon playthrough now and hoping for a patch.
Crytek are a one trick pony. Limited imaginations too.
Have to have cry in every thing. The games, the game engine. The company name.
Nearly everything they make is just a reskin of the same damn thing over and over. Only real differences between Crytek games is they tend to be more
hardware intensive with each new release.
Not played Farcry 6 yet, but I expect it to be just Farcry 1,2,3,4 and 5 with new characters.
Sadly this is becoming a common thing with a lot of developers/publishers.
Not just video games, but also books, cinema, TV shows. Hard to find anything entertaining any more when it's all just wash rinse and repeat and you
can guess the entire plot in the first 5 minutes because well..... it's the billionth time it has been done and you've seen it. Even the 'twists'.
Mankind seems to be pretty limited when it comes to imagination. The only thing we seem capable of advancing is our tech.
Heck we even get games now that are a step backwards in terms of mechanics. I could play 64 player Quake 2 in 1997 on 56k dial up, new Quake and
Doom's etc you're lucky if you even get 8 players in multiplayer.
I have a huge video game library, and there are not many games I own where I don't get bored after 5 minutes any more. I'll no doubt buy FarCry6
eventually. As I have with every other FarCry game, when it's on sale or in a bundle for next to nothing. I can wait, especially when it's a single
player based game.
As for pre-orders.... well South Park said it best:
But as with everything, nothing will change as long as people keep pre-ordering and paying for these things.
People constantly bitch about these franchises, like Battlefield, FarCry and more. But then they still go pre-order and rush out and buy them on day
I don't mind it. I'm not going to the Caribbean this year cause of the covid so it kinda puts me there with guns (and an alligator) Graphics are
great on my x box X.
Did you finish it?
Always hard to kill # at the beginning of a shooter.
One game I got recently which is great is Diablo 2 resurrected. I played that one for many, many hours back in the day..
Good example of polished, always was but the graphics re-do is amazing..

From what I've seen there is different ammo for armored enemies and yes as is the case with Ubi games the AI is dumb , it's Far Cry so in time they'll
patch the bugs and other issues but if you don't like the core game then bug fixes won't really help.
Perhaps the DLC will offer something better for your $100 , you know the game's not right when Gamespot give it 7/10.
At this point, sad to say, the best games tend to be the indy games where they can take risks and do some different things or at least leave the
coding open to modders who will take the game in interesting directions.
Indies aren't the high powered, polished experience of AAA, but graphics aren't lipstick and they don't fix the pigs.
Gameplay is everything. Good graphics are just a bonus.
I didn't have much trouble at all in the time I got on CyberPunk. My big issue there is that I don't have time to really play it anymore. You can't
exactly play it with a kid in the background. I mean you *could*, but it's hardly the responsible parental thing to do.
