Every Far Cry game ranked from worst to best

Far Cry is one of the kings of the modern-day open-world, and we have ranked all of the entries from worst to best.

Published

Far Cry helped to define open-world games and is now one of the elite franchises in the world for the genre. So here are the main games in the franchise ranked from worst to best.

After Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry is probably Ubisoft’s leading AAA franchise, with the open-world phenomenon spanning 15 years and multiple award-winning entries. Far Cry has set the standard in sprawling, exotic stretches of land for players to explore and fight in.

Each game has tried to leave its mark of originality whether it was a different setting or an instantly memorable villain. We’ve broken down the main games in the storied franchise and ranked the Far Cry games from worst to best.

7. Far Cry New Dawn

After the rip-roaring ending to Far Cry 5, Ubisoft decided we needed to go one more round with Hope County, albeit a much brighter one. The problem with Far Cry New Dawn is that it highlights much of the franchise’s later problems, feeling too samey.

Given that there’s only one year between the release of Far Cry 5 and New Dawn, and it’s basically the same map, you can’t help but feel this is glorified DLC. If you missed out on Far Cry 5, then it might be worth a blast.

6. Far Cry Primal

The obvious outlier in the series, Primal was an almost shallow attempt to appear much different, without actually doing it. The time period was wound back several thousand years, yet the game still somehow managed to feel like the standard Far Cry game we’d become accustomed to.

Given that it’s 10,000 BC, your character has to use sticks and stones to break bones, and it certainly gets points for at least trying to feel like a fresh concept.

5. Far Cry

If you get a chance to play Far Cry Classic – an upscaling of the 2004 original – then you get a game that can match up to the graphical quality of many present-day games – it looks that good.

Taking you to a tropical island, the first game in the franchise was probably a bit too linear and held your hand a bit too much to be in the running for best game. As the starting point of a new franchise, it’s certainly a great game.

4. Far Cry 2

This felt like a step up in almost every department from the first game, and its tropical island was another gorgeous setting for an epic RPG.

The only problem is that its attempts to be realistic proved to be a bit excessive in the end. Gun jamming was infuriating and far too frequent, repairing vehicles was a chore, and whilst Malaria was a nice touch, it would interfere with what you were doing much too regularly.

3. Far Cry 5

We didn’t find there to be too much wrong with Far Cry 5, it’s just that it does little to make itself stand out as a unique entry. It does manage to carry on the trend of having a recognizable, hated main villain with psychopathic tendencies at least.

It does get rid of viewpoint climbing and other repetitive trends, but it’s overshadowed by the alleged freedom to how you can approach the story. This is evidenced by the forced abductions that make you do main missions, even if you’re already preoccupied with something else.

2. Far Cry 4

If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. That’s the formula and ideology that Ubisoft slapped on Far Cry 4 to ensure the series’ renaissance continued. The fictional country of Kyrat and its civil war made for an appealing host, and Pagan Min was captivating, albeit brief.

Overall it still carried that aura of trying to placate its audience by retaining pretty much the same formula of Far Cry 3 and mostly reskinning it.

1. Far Cry 3

The impact that Far Cry 3 had on the open-world genre feels tantamount to the seismic shift that Grand Theft Auto III caused. It stripped back the overbearing realism of Far Cry 2 and created something wholesome and endlessly fun.

The game’s sub-villain Vaas Montenegro is regarded as an all-time great, the game looks incredible, the gameplay feels amazing, and hunting is a joy. It could perhaps have finished off its story a bit better, but that can be forgiven for its superb mission design, particularly burning drugs in a huge field to thumping dubstep.

That concludes our ranking of the Far Cry games. Each game will have something different for everyone, and your thoughts may differ from ours.

Be sure to let us know what your favorite Far Cry game was.

Fortnite has seen a rush of crossovers for the past few months, with notable franchises like Terminator, Street Fighter & Star Wars entering the arena with their universes characters.

Now it appears that an exclusive Batman X Zero Point promo is coming soon to fans of Fortnite, and according to popular Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR, it will drop on April 20, 2021.

How to get Fortnite’s Alien skins in Season 5

You can get yourself some neat Ripley and Xenomorph skins, along with other Alien-themed cosmetics in Fortnite Season 5.

Aliens in Fortnite

The legendary Alien movie franchise is the latest to team up with Epic Games for a crossover in Fortnite Season 5. Here’s how you can get your hands on the brand new Ellen Ripley and Xenomorph skins.

Fortnite Season 5 has introduced numerous crossovers with other franchises, as we’ve seen the arrival of Master ChiefThe Terminator, and The Flash, among others. Now, Epic Games have brought in some new cosmetics from the Alien franchise.

The iconic sci-fi heroine Ellen Ripley has shown up on Fortnite Island alongside her nemesis, the Xenomorph. There is also a cute Chestburster emote that comes with these skins, and here’s how you can get this bundle for yourself.

Ripley and the Xenomorph in Fortnite

Certain Fortnite cosmetics sets become available immediately through the Battle Pass, while others have you complete a few challenges or quests first. Luckily, this Alien bundle requires far less effort for you to get it.

You can acquire the entire Space Gear Bundle from the Item Shop for a limited time. This cosmetics set consists of the following items:

  • Ellen Ripley Skin
  • Xenomorph Skin
  • Xenomorph Tail Back Bling
  • Xeno Menace (Built-in Emote)
  • Nostromo Crew Outfit
  • Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier
  • P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe
  • Cheyenne Dropship Glider
  • Burst Case Scenario Emote

The developers have done a great job of emulating the aesthetic of the 1979 classic with these items. You can choose to either terrify your opponents as the Xenomorph, or show how hard-hearted you can be as the iconic Ellen Ripley.

Epic Games confirmed in a official blog post that these cosmetic items are available from Thursday, February 25 onwards, but they haven’t elaborated on when the bundle will disappear from the in-game store.

Cosmetic bundles always come and go in Fortnite’s Item Shop, so we don’t expect these skins to stick around there for long. Which is why you should get your hands on the Alien set before it disappears.

With a few weeks of Fortnite Season 5 still left, we’re left wondering what other crossovers we can expect, with Family Guy’s Peter Griffin even being rumored to join the battle royale.
