Review: Far Cry 6 is a bland entry in a series in need of revolution

Ubisoft delivers a stunning, sprawling paradise wasted on boring quests and unlikable characters

Game director
Alexandre Letendre
Key Credits
Navid Khavari (Narrative director & lead writer), Benjamin Hill (World director), Omar Bouali (Game content director)

If you’re interested in another Far Cry game that does the Far Cry stuff the way it’s been doing it for 10 years, you’ll probably have a good time, but if you’ve already hit your limit with this kind of game, Far Cry 6 is the ne plus ultra of why open-world game design is so badly in need of a revolution.  

  • Visually stunning 
  • Giancarlo Esposito steals the show, when he gets the chance. 
  • Boring mission design
  • Toothless story
  • Open-world blandness at its worst. 
2 / 5
Version tested
PlayStation 5
