Re: Currently Playing
I'm at the "half way" point in FarCry New Dawn; you get to an Intermission segment, but I already did 100% up to that point.
Each FarCry seems to get an expansion edition afterwards: 3 - blood dragon, 4 - primal, 5 - new dawn. New Dawn might be the best. It really surprised me. Here are some pros:
+ Sidebar dialogue is excellent. From your own companions to npc, it's interesting or funny. From baddies it's hilarious or threatening. I'd argue this game has the best non-cutscene dialogue ever.
+ Guns are good again. You are very crippled at first, but getting up to level 4 gives each gun a different feel. There are basically SMG, assault rifle, etc - but each new level adds a slightly different feel for the upgrade.
+ Story missions are great. This has a mission going up river, lighting torches - very spooky. It's probably my favorite mission in a FarCry game.
+ Expeditions is almost a full game in itself. Their are tons, and then there are 3 levels for each one.
+ The music is the best in the series, after Blood Dragon's 80's vibe. You only hear it from radios, but it's very noticeable.
+ The amount of baddies is perfect.
+ Companions are fun, all different.
- the companion AI is be garbage, most of the time.
- wildlife can be scarce to WAY TOO much randomly. It felt almost buggy at times.
::: Perks are ok. Because you get unlimited perk points throughout, I liked being able to power up the same ones towards endgame.
$40 is great. But it's been on sale for $20 for a while
