This is Far Cry from its predecesso­rs


When the first Far Cry game landed on consoles 17 years ago, it was a huge success.

It was one of a wave of next generation first-person shooters released that year, taking advantage of improving technology to produce something very special.

Fast forward a decade though, and it was a very different story.

The franchise was struggling and even die hard fans wanted to see the game do something different — and with Far Cry 6, developer Ubisoft is attempting to deliver just that.

The set-up isn’t mould-breaking, taking place on the fictional island of Yara which is under the iron rule of President Anton Castillo.

You’re dropped into the mix as guerilla fighter Dani Rojas who you must help topple‘el Presidente’ and his regime.

The island itself is breathtaki­ng, with lush verdant jungles, vibrant streets in the capital city and shanty coastal villages.

Each section of Yara presents its own challenges, with enemy soldiers becoming better equipped, and their locations more heavily fortified as Dani ‘ranks up’.

As much fun as I’ve already had on Yara, I have barely scraped the surface of what this game has to offer.

And while those hoping for a vastly different Far Cry experience will quickly find this much more of the same, fans will not be disappoint­ed by what’s on offer.
