@Xbob42 Question about the sniper rifle early on. When I aim through the scope a big red X is displayed? It doesn't seem to allow me to use the weapon? Am I missing something? I shot the rifle with the big red X in the way and it wouldn't harm the enemy. Wtf am I doing wrong?

You probably only have standard ammo which only does tickle damage. I had the same problem and didn’t realize gun powder was so rare because the beginning of the game gives you some and I thought it would be more common.

No one else liked the setting of 5? I really liked the concept of some rural American backwater. Always kind of wished they had more town and less fields, though.

I thought it was great. That was until I played it. Ubi really cut the balls off their own project. I was looking forward to all of these controversial things and then it had none.

Played 3 more hours. I'm having a total blast! This is much better than 5 for sure. I like Dani and the rest of the cast as well. The visuals might be some of the best I've seen overall. The environment is stunning at times with incredible draw distance. 

 

The enemies can be a bitch to take down later on and as I stated before, they are WAY to accurate shooting from extremely long distances and putting some serious damage on me. I struggled in one mission and it took me a few trys to beat it. 

 

@Dodger I found gun powder and upgraded my sniper ammo to piercing bullets and the gun is still useless. I'm really confused what's going on there. I thought I did everything correctly and went to to use the sniper rifle and it was like shooting peas at the enemy. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Overall, this game is awesome for what it is and offers a ton of content. I'm very pleased I bought this.

"Action mode?" Is that hard and story is normal?

 

They literally give you two options. "Action Mode" which they explain in the description that this is how the game should be played. 

 

Then there's "Story mode" which is just to enjoy the story without much of a challenge. 

 

So to me, that comes off as normal mode and easy.

That’s how I understood it and picked the same mode.

Same. Game isn't really that hard though. Headshots for days on my end.

 

I enjoy it alot. Haven't played a FC game since 1 but I do wish it was actually serious with the subject matter. 

 

I really like that the game includes a spanish option. Been playing the game in Spanish.

I don't have the game which is why I asked. So those are the two options, huh? Interesting.

Action mode isn't necessarily easy by any means. I think my mistake is picking missions that are at higher levels than I am and trying to beat those missions. The enemies are extremely aware and accurate and you can die easily encountering higher level missions. I picked my level for missions and headshots are key. I then had a little bit of an easier time with clearing enemies and such. 

 

I just played 4 more hours this evening and had a total blast. This is my favorite Far Cry game in the series. It's story moves along at a great pace and the characters and stories within the characters are interesting. The game offers all types of vehicles and guns and they make you work for them. You have jet ski's, trucks, cars, tanks, helicopters, and planes. All seamlessly integrated while the story progress's. The environment and foliage are the best I've seen in a game to date as well.

 

I highly recommend this game! I'm going on vacation tomorrow so I won't be playing again until Monday.

Damn I'm trying to wait to buy this as I just started playing Far Cry 5 but this seems like it's pretty well done. I'm gonna give it a month to see if it drops in price... Ubisoft games tend to drop pretty quickly.
