Critics Consensus: Far Cry 6 achieves just what it sets out to do., and Anton Castillo is one of the best villains in the saga. It may feel familiar – in fact, you’ve played Far Cry 6 many times before – but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a phenomenal open-world action romp.

Far Cry 6 achieves just what it sets out to do., and Anton Castillo is one of the best villains in the saga. It may feel familiar - in fact, you've played Far Cry 6 many times before - but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a phenomenal open-world action romp.

8/10
Jon Ryan (IGN)

Far Cry 6 smooths over a lot of the bumps that have cropped up in the past few games and even though it misses some steps, especially with its new inventory system, it’s the best the series has been in years.

Colourful and brutal, funny and horrifying, Far Cry 6 is the distilled essence of its franchise, as well as a richer and more coherent experience than recent outings.

There’s plenty that’s familiar about the latest entry in Ubisoft’s open world shooter, but that doesn’t stop it being a blast.
