I might be in the minority here, but while I wouldn't say Far Cry 5 is an amazing game overall, it was one of my favorite games last year. I wasn't even going to buy it, and in fact, didn't, but my brother bought my other brother the game so they could play co-op and that's when I went through it. I was surprised by how enjoyable it was to go through the setting of Hope County, and I really, really liked a lot of the soundtrack which is always a huge plus in any game. I appreciated the small changes to the typical Far Cry gameplay. Visually, it was a beautiful looking game too.
The shooting and story could have been a bit better to name a couple issues with it, but overall it was a great experience for me. It is probably my third favorite Far Cry game behind Instincts and Blood Dragon. With that said, has anyone played New Dawn and perhaps with a similar perspective to mine about five, what did you think of New Dawn? That said I'm also curious about everyone's experience with it. There's only one thread on it here, which tells me not a lot of people played it, or the enthusiasm just isn't there for it. I'm guessing it has a lot to do with it being more Far Cry.
