Far Cry 6 got way too much hate, fans agree

Alongside the Assassin’s Creed franchise, one of Ubisoft’s other most popular and lucrative properties is Far Cry.

More often than not, each Far Cry entry plonks you on a gorgeous tropical island with things that want to kill you - including lions, crocodiles, and bandits. Though the most deadly of predators has to be that pesky Honey Badger. Seriously, don’t mess with the Honey Badger, because the Honey Badger will exact its revenge.

What’s more, at least since 2013’s Far Cry 3, the series has also starred charismatic villains with the most recent being the dictator "El Presidente" Antón Castillo played by Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Boys, and The Mandalorian) in Far Cry 6.

On Metacritic, Far Cry 6 earned decent scores across all available platforms that hovered in the 70s region. Sure, it never scored badly, but it never blew fans out of the water either. One of the most common complaints from the community is Far Cry 6 adopted the tried and tested formula of previous entries, playing it safe and not really attempting to push the boundaries of the series.

In our review of Far Cry 6, we scored it a 6/10 with our writer saying: “I really wanted Far Cry 6 to be more than the previous games. A shake-up of the formula that accounted for the violence of its setting. You're leading a revolution, starting a vicious civil war between entrenched factions, this is something open world games can reflect so well as areas of its land change based on your actions. But, disappointingly, it not only does little with its premise but is a poor version of things Far Cry has done well in the past.”

On Reddit, users have been discussing games that they thought received too much hate. “My pick would be Far Cry 6. Everyone seems to hate it, yet I really enjoyed it and thought it was better than 5. What are your opinions on this?” asked LeonSmith1401 kicking off the discussion on the thread.

“It's not that Far Cry 6 is a bad game, it's just that it's been the same game for the past 10 years,” replied Competitive-Delay815. “Isn’t that kind of why you play Far Cry, though?” adds TheLeadSponge.

Other suggestions included Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as suggested by Saint_Link: “Most of the criticisms were aimed at how Square Enix monetised the hell out of it.” Heck, one Redditor even mentioned Battleborn. Do you remember that game? “Battleborn. Still annoyed I can't even play it offline,” said Deviate_Taco. “Honestly Watch Dogs 1, the map needed more stuff to do and the story is forgettable, but overall a fun experience,” states mr_mstyr.
