But the timing release on this is bad....I'm considering The Division, we're still in the middle of Dying Light The Following, I'd actually like to get Plants vs Zombies 2 and on top of it all I'd like to try Uncharted 4.

I'll probably hold off and see what the release schedule is for the next few months...I know dark Souls III is a few months away. But the game does look good and a new take without all the modern stuff to play with.

Yeah I'm not really sure what clicked for me on this game. Maybe at 41 this game isn't as complicated for me. It just seemed really natural and simple to understand the skill trees and upgrades but I'm hoping we get Far Cry 5 in November.

Three hours in. It's Far Cry 4.5 for sure but I'm definitely having a great time with it.

I want a Far Cry set during the rise and fall of the Aztecs with a fully realized Tenochtitlan and encounters with the conquistadores.

I've actually wanted that for an Assassins Creed setting for half a decade or so. But you're right, it would work better as Far Cry.

Same here and agree. I'm playing on Hard and liking it more than I thought I would. The tension of just creeping around with a spear or bow with all these wild animals around is pretty great.

It's definitely more fun than I thought it'd be. But the hallucinating vision type missions are annoying.

Yeah I wasn't a big fan of the Yogi missions on Far Cry 4

Hallucinating missions are the worst. Disappointed to hear this is in yet another FC game.

I liked them a lot in the first and third games, didn't like them at all in the 4th.

They're even worse in this one. Especially when you have to

control a mammoth.


It may sound fun but it's not. At all.

Yep just finished at 100% with 70 hours. Now to the dlc.

Fired this up last night... that opening was pretty intense. I'm really liking the stealth aspect but I'm sure I'll miss sniping guys and the fun weapons from FC3 and 4.

About a quarter of the way through. Two things. One....I really miss guns. Two...considering how straight forward and somewhat generic the missions are, I have no doubt this was originally DLC for FC4 that was prolonged to be a stand alone release. Still enjoying the game though.

Funny thing is I don't miss the guns at all.

Is it the same world map as FC4?

I was so tempted to get this but same with that new Fallout 4 price of $40. Glad the game is panning out and probably a buy later down the road. Hopefully it will be thin after March with new games....March is going to be brutal with The Division and Uncharted 4. Is the map size about the same as in FC4?

Ended up abandoning this one 2/3rds of the way through. The missions just didn't do it for me and the wildlife threat got boring very quickly.

I am only 5 hours into this and I am thinking about moving on to something else. It is just not clicking with me.

I was set to buy this but decided to wait for other people to give their reviews....think I'll pass. Looking forward to Doom though.

I was really down on this game for the first couple of hours. It certainly is less fun with clubs and arrows than guns. But after unlocking some Beastmaster skills and using animals to kill for you, it's actually kind of fun and certainly very different from most shooters you'll play. Between Catching Them All beast taming and increasing your village population, I'm finding new things to enjoy in this game. I'll play the rental for a while and will eventually buy this game when it goes for $20-$25.
