Let’s just call it a 7 and be done with it. After comparing the polarizing reviews I’ve averaged it out to there. It’s a 7. Buy it when it gets patched and goes on sale and maybe you have fun making things go boom.
Yeah. From what I heard from some of the issues, and the fact it's just more of the same, it's hard to believe this game warrants a 10/10. Even if they had a great time playing it, you need to take everything about it into the score. I haven't played it, myself. I typically wait for sales because, well, Farcry is just so samey anymore; but 7 - 8 feels where I figure most gamers will sit with the title.
Ever thought about exiting politics for video game commentary? ;)
Performance on pc completely discounts anything over 7. At least on that platform. Plus, it's really a lot more of the same. Yeah, thereare changes to the formula. Progression especially. But still, it's an ubi open world. With all the baggage that entails.
The game is flawless on the PS5, which is what this review was based on.
Flawless? Somehow I doubt that.
Depends what you consider "flawless". Devs typically gimp settings on console so they can get things like 4k and 60fps in the summary because those are the buzzwords people care about anymore. I've seen test results where the game definitely dips under that, and that's without raytracing. They definitely didn't do the job they should have with PC optimization, but the GPU companies will probably remedy that with future drivers, if Ubi, themselves, don't as well.
