|Primal has lots of hunting and crafting doesn't it? Puts me right off. 5 doesn't have all that crap or loads of towers etc.|

I seem to remember crafting in FC5....
It was OK as a game. No better or worse than FC4 imo.

It felt like a wasted opportunity. Good mechanics, looked great some interesting characters. But the story consisted of religious nuts waffling at you in cutscenes, then everything you did was ruined by a nuke getting dropped and your character spending the rest of their days stuck in a bunker with Father McNutso. I mean really, what the fuck?
I read that ......

I enjoyed primal, 5 is ok, there’s plenty to do in it but I guess the fact it “grabs hold of the wheel” itself at times is a bit jarring.
This new one looks like it’s going to bomb horribly. No one asked for it and the antagonists don’t appeal to me at all.

It's going for 22 quid at cdkeys. I passed on it.
New Dawn is really growing on me. The story is meh at best but the expeditions and ability to go back to outposts with a harder difficulty is really fun. I hope both of these features make it into the next far cry game.

I noticed New Dawn is already 50% off on the Xbox store so presumably it hasn't sold well. Looked alright to me, bit more colourful than 5 at least
I ended up getting New Dawn cheap and it definitely seems to be an improvement on 5. Well, certainly not as irritating yet.
I disagree that it waits until the middle part to get repetitive as by then you've probably been impossibly kidnapped and monologued at about 5 times. And that's not even taking into account things like ignoring your character being sneaky and triggering a cut scene where you walk in the front door. FC5 is on a whole other level and it's a testament to the "but it's cheap!" factor that I bought New Dawn at all.
Another vote here for New Dawn.
Played FC5 and all the dlc’s and this is an absolute corker. More concise than 5 and just wandering around is a real joy. Very easy progression, too.
Almost feels like Skyrim in its ability to just let you get lost in the really quite beautiful world. There’s a lot of negativity surrounding it, but you’re missing out if you’re a fan of the FC series imho.

Picked this up in a sale a few weeks ago (FC5, not New Dawn) and surprised at how much I'm enjoying it. Liberated the first region and moving onto the second. Dunno why I like it... not completed a Far Cry game since the PC-only original. But so far it's been fun.

I expected FC5 to be better based on the reviews. It was ok, but balancing is a bit off (you die really easily at first, and then just a little later you can buy a helicopter gunship which basically turns on God Mode for most tasks), and the fact you're constantly ripped out of whatever you're doing -like flying a chopper- so one of the baddies can spout exposition at you is just annoying.
I also felt the fact you spend so much time fighting and listening to the Family members diminished Joseph's impact quite a lot.
I did like the ending though. Unexpected.

So is there something wrong with my PS4 pro or what?
This game seems fine until I get in a car. Then every, I dunno, 10 seconds, there's a several second long pause (loading, I guess), then it picks up again. Texture pop in is quite noticeable very often too.

@AboutHalfaStevas never had that issue on Pro - more just that the fans went apeshit
Yeah, I appear to be the only person in the world (yet again) with an issue like this. So either I'm imagining it (actually entirely plausible) or my pro is fucked. It does this with no other game though.

Picked this up in the recent sale and I'm pretty close to giving up on it. It's so fucking boring, it's a literal reskin of the last two. Does it pick up much beyond clearing out endless bases?

It's more fun in co op tbh.
