On this occasion, ExGamesPlay will present a simple review of Far Cry 6. Is this series different from the previous series?

Far Cry 6 Review - Action Full of Freedom And Minimum Specs

The Far Cry franchise did have a vacuum of approximately 2 years since the release of the spin-off series, Far Cry: New Dawn. At that time Ubisoft was being focused on the release of the Assassin's Creed Valhalla game and also Watch Dogs Legion. What makes the Far Cry 6 franchise get special attention from the beginning of course comes from the figure of the famous antagonist actor, Giancarlo Esposito who acts as Anton Castillo in this game.

As we already know, this game is indeed quite famous for its villain figure iconic and mechanical survival action full of freedom. This apparently can we encounter again in their Far Cry 6 game. It's just that, which makes this different game you find on the side of the gameplay and the perspective they managed to take. In addition, the story they lift will smell politics and revolution.

Plots smell of politics and social gaps

Yara is a beautiful country filled with a thick Cuban culture. This country has just carried out the election by lifting a man's figure of Anton Castillo as a president. What they did not know, Anton was the son of a cruel dictator. Then, as Anton's son finally went down the nature of his father had power and iron hands. He also had a child named Diego who would be his successor.

Anton Castillo was chosen to realize the dream of the Yara community as a country of heaven. The dream is almost realized when found natural resources in the form of viviro, tobacco leaves medicine material that can cure any barrier. For Anton, this leaf is a bridge to make his country prosper. For this reason, he hired his people randomly for farming and began to fulfill drug supplies to other countries.

The purpose of Anton certainly sounded very noble once until it was found that Viviro leaves would only grow using poisonous fertilizers. Many workers began to get severe diseases until they died while planting using this fertilizer. Seeing the opportunity begin to fade, Anton decided to do forced labor to his people so that production could continue. The rebellion emerged and Anton began to make brutal violence.

In the game, you will play as Dani Rojas, a former Yara military before Anton's chosen. He had the ambition to keep his best friend's promise killed by an ambush of Anton's troops (Fuerzas Nacionales de Defensa) on a fishing boat. He joined Libertad, the Yara revolution group formed by former CIA Juan Cortez to destroy the fascist regime from Anton Castillo.

The devotion of stories from the third perspective that ends satisfactorily

The story of the story on Far Cry 6 experienced a large increase. Because in this game Ubisoft began to take the emphasis of a third person's perspective to tell stories. Different from Far Cry before, you can see the appearance of the main character you can choose from gender. Each character also devotes its expression and role very well. So the player can find it easier to know the emotional form he feels.

Anton Castillo is a president, he is a figure who is hard to approach or just killed. Like the previous Far Cry game, Dani had to defeat Anton's subordinates containing generals. Dani's adventure will begin when the Libertad troops began targeting many of Yara's military facilities. From here, you must take over Outposts, Roadblock, and Yara Convoy which is widespread in 5 different regions.

Choosing Giancarlo Esposito to portray the Villain figure in this game is the right step for Ubisoft. Because Giancarlo already knew what he had to do to form the character Anton Castillo who had strength and authority. He was not afraid to give a veiled threat in every emotion and tone of his voice. Although cruel, Anton managed to reflect the figure of the teacher and father to the child.

Having a violent story impression, Far Cry 6 managed to provide a little emotional element and humorous. Even so, it looks like the humor they give is more dominant but still concerned with the boundaries. On the other hand, the stories they offer are quite simple and easy to be a thorn. Various twists conveyed are indeed lacking innovation. But in terms of writing, this one series is indeed the best.

In addition to the emphasis on Third Person, this game also provides 2 different ideological perspectives. Anton and Libertad both wanted to realize a prosperous country. These two camps will do anything for his dream. Anton's son named Diego would be a neutral character who became a separator who was bad and good on both camps. Yup, at the end of the game you can conclude himself who has the right to take control of Yara.

Formula gameplay is wider and focused on the style of the game

In terms of Gameplay Far Cry, 6 did not experience many changes. As usual, this game also re-carries the Gun-Play Action Shooter concept. You can also use stealth elements if you want. On the other hand, which makes the game impressive of course comes with a focus on various weapons variants that you can choose. Don't stop there, the player must also attach importance to the available crafting elements.

Talking about crafting, Far Cry 6 managed to increase the far wider formula crafting. You can find it from Crafting Attachment, Arsenal, Vehicles, and Base Camp. As far as playing experience, every crafting component also expands with various junk items that you can use. You no longer hunt and look for animal skin in this game. Rather, look for fixtures such as scrap metal and others.

Far Cry 6 Review - Formula gameplay

Switch from the crafting element, Far Cry 6 finally brought the RPG formula. For this reason, Ubisoft removes the Skill Tree system and adds the leveling system to every gear you use. They implement because every enemy in the game also has a different level. Formulas like this limit the player so as not to commit mass murder like the previous Far Cry game.

In addition to weapons and modified vehicles, this game also presents a choice of sidekicks (amigos) in the form of pet animals. The player can carry crocodiles (Gapo), Dogs (Chorizo), Chicharron, or Phanter (Oluso) to defeat the enemies. Each animal has its class, for example, such a crocodile that can be the opponent and dog as a distraction. They can all get through Main Mission and Quest.

Ubisoft has confirmed that they have been meats 50 weapons variations in the game. All of these weapons can add using handmade attachments and use the resulting type of ammunition. In addition, you can make unique weapons such as nail theaters, Flame Thrower, DVD cords, and minigun motor machines. However, the most interesting is the rocket launcher backpack named Supremo.

Side activities and mini-games that make you feel at home playing

A large increase came again from the side quest side. Far Cry 6 managed to offer a total of 29 Side Missions with the Tampai "Yaran Tale". On this mission, you will meet a lot of stories to find out about Dani's best friend, Libertad members, or native Yara. It's cool anymore, the Tale Yaran will play a role in giving the life side of Yara Island that does not escape from social or political problems.

As you know, the last few weeks of Far Cry 6 got a hot conversation about the existence of chicken fabrium features in the game. The feature was present as a mini-game of Far Cry 6 which managed to polish with Mortal Fighting Mechanics in Kombat. Which makes his fashion interesting, Ubisoft is not half-hearted. He gave a lot of chicken choices with different skills and interesting combo mechanics.

Continuing this, we apparently can do other activities such as fishing, playing dominoes, or treasure hunting. For the deliberate fishing mode, they are input just to meet the requirements of collectibles items only. But for the Ubisoft Treasure Hunt, gives its challenges in the form of a puzzle containing a large number of additional money rewards. This mission is indeed not too rewarding but it is worthy of your taste.

Continuing, Ubisoft doesn't forget to add co-op mode to this game. Far Cry 6 can you enjoy the whole story by playing co-op with friends. Even so, this is not enough Ballance from the Combat side because AI in this game is indeed not satisfactory. Even when you play a single-player, AI from Far Cry 6 still seems insensitive to circumstances and not afraid of danger.

More wild and more open exploration concepts

Yara has managed to reflect the appearance of a beautiful Cuba country. In this game, you will find 5 regions different from the extraordinary area. Each region also has its own identity of the building structure and also the culture. This can be proven by a mini chicken connection game which apparently can only be found in rural areas of Yara.

Even though it's very beautiful, Yara is a pretty dangerous place. This game provides special spots that get tight guards from authority. There are several areas that you cannot go through by air before destroying an outpost. That is why the Libertad Griliyawan decided to make an underground tunnel. Later, you can skip this place freely by walking like a real a guerrilla.

In terms of visual presentation, each region in this game has served with the concept of a social gap. We can visit the open, urban areas, and the slum villages that are not taken care of. In addition, the breadth of the folder is present, the player will rely more on the Fast Travel feature that you can unlock during the progress. If you enjoy the scenery more, this visual game is also very pampering.

Not different from the old series, Far Cry 6 also did not forget to provide the freedom of the player to explore. You will get a lot of vehicle choices to remark with a modification system. Examples such as cars, helicopters, planes, jetski, and horses. It's cool anymore, you can even make your favorite cars floating using paragliders or armed with a dual minigun.

Far Cry 6 is the best Far Cry series I've ever played so far. Ubisoft again managed to lift new themes and settings that were no less relevant to our social life. By introducing a complex villain ideology, making Far Cry 6 has a more realistic story. In addition, choosing a third person's perspective makes this game successfully deliver the emotional taste of its character to the maximum.

Continuing, spoiled voice actors make each character give the impression of a close relationship in a different form of understanding. Just there, Ubisoft did not forget to give the freedom of the player who wanted to explore as much as possible. Not to mention all playing missions in this game form dynamically to give something fresh.

Even though it's serious, Far Cry 6 still serves humor spices that are not too excessive. In addition, the gameplay side of this game has expanded with many side activities that are quite memorable. As if it was still unsatisfied, Ubisoft finally removed the Skill Tree system that became a complaint. Of course, the system is replaced by a more free upgrade to meet the flexible game style.

Apart from all this, Far Cry 6 is certainly not a completely perfect game. Because there are still many things that become their homework to make this game better. You can find it through AI which is still bad and a story twist is too light for us to guess. Even so, we won't get bored to invite you to play this one game, what's more for you Far Cry fans before.

For those of you who haven't had the chance to try this game, then now is the right time to try it. Far Cry 6 yourself can be you play on the PC platform, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series. PC users can buy the game directly through the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store. Do you want to free Yara Island from Anton Castillo's iron hand?
