Most of the time it goes like this:

There's the alarm should shoot it with silenced sniper gun. Shit, missed. Ah balls he is going to press it. Ah. He pressed it. Run run ok molotov out and away to my left and let's start the dakka dakka. Where the fuck did that bear come from? What exploded? Dakka dakka shit that bear is back dakka dakka base clear! Wait! Theres a fucking bear here come here murder mittens now die! Dakka dakka dakka

But the three step description is far cooler.

This article suggests you should upskill your beast handling skills first and foremost.

I think having any kind of NPC compadre would be more of a ballache than anything, but I'd imagine plenty would enjoy having their own personal attack bear.

There’s something like 9 different side kicks from dog, bear and sabrewulf to dude with gun and woman with gun. Plus you can pick up more fellas along the way to form your own gang of redecks. And bear.

It's thoroughly brilliant, and thoroughly Far Cry.

I’ve heard the AI is dumb as shit. What’s the general consensus?

Anyone who has played it - what’s the enemy types here for bases? Don’t tell me it’s just grunts and heavies? What you peeps saying?

Every review I've read has criticised it for being tonally all over the place and that it tries to make deeper statements than the writing is capable of.

Which is every Far Cry ever so seems an odd complaint to level at FC5.

I loved FC3 and 4 in spite of the writing and characters, not because of them.

Ah, I hadn't paid too much attention to that.

Fair enough. I always felt the series has had ideas above its station in terms of social commentary and player agency. The writing has generally been piss poor aside from Vaas and Min. The gameplay was enjoyable enough to let it slide. But if they've tried to hitch their wagon more formally to being Something Important, then those criticisms are more valid.

Did it though or did the gaming press just leap to conclusions when they saw the setting?

Anyway I definitely wasn't expecting to be ruminating on politics whilst playing it.

They can't drive for shit, but tactically they seem decent. Plenty of taking cover.

I'm early on, but there's been a decent mix so far. They're less easily classified than earlier games because they don't just have one character model per type, but there's drugged up melee nutters, grunts, flamethrower dudes, snipers so far.

Pro tip - don't run over a guy with a flamethrower in a tractor.

"Fundies be whack, yo" is about as deep as it has got so far.

Fuck me sideways, I had to get him up off the floor a lot.

Not captured: the stealthy approach to a big base crawling with troops where I parked some way back and climbed a rock to recon and Craster drove his truck through the gate, then handbrake-turned and rolled it clean over in direct sight of a solid dozen or so of the Bad Men.

Not captured: the time I pulled off a beautful 50m bow-and-arrow headshot.... on a hostage. That was amazing. Craster was running up shouting "don't worry fren, now you are free!" and then his face sprouted an arrow and I said "did you see that shot!" and Craster said "yes, about that..." and my screen said DON'T KILL INNOCENTS YOU BUFFOON.

Pro-tip: get the perk that allows you to air-drop above a place instead of fast travelling and wing suit from there. Fastest way to get to out-of-the-way places.

I’ve started this. Seems alright after about an hour although I’d have taken lower resolution and a higher frame rate over this native 4K guff.

But blow me the effect when you go from inside to outside is really fucking aggressive.
