As I said, there's plenty of game here, and it's all been a joy. Far Cry 5 was one of the best games in the series, and yet New Dawn may have just eclipsed it with some fine-tuning and a brave new world to explore. I can hardly wait to see what's next from the series, and I hope it follows in the footsteps of The Father.

Far Cry New Dawn takes players on an interesting journey to tell the story of what happened after the cliffhanger events of Far Cry 5. It mixes and matches franchise staples with new RPG mechanics and gameplay ideas to offer something familiar, but fresh.

Far Cry New Dawn shares a lot of great similarities with Far Cry 5, but it’s the minor tweaks that allow it to stand as its own title. With so much to do, so many places to explore, and a post-apocalyptic world that is grounded in realism, there is no shortage of entertainment to be had in Hope County. While Mickey and Lou may not seem as threatening as previous instalments’ villains, they and the Highwaymen with their vibrant neon graffiti and motocross-influenced gear are definitely a force to be reckoned with. Welcome back to Hope County – and good luck.

Far Cry: New Dawn не ощущается как полноценная отдельная игра, как по длине прохождение, так и по проработанному миру и игровым механикам. Скорее это неплохое дополнение для Far Cry 5. Из сильных сторон игры стоит отметить неплохой сюжет с знакомыми персонажами и харизматичными новыми героями и все то, за что мы так любили и прошлые части – хорошая экшн составляющая, захват точек, большой открытый мир, пусть и не сильно поменявшийся с прошлой игры и т.д. Из нового в New Dawn радуют только вылазки на базы рейлеров, а упор в сторону RPG с необходимостью поиска ресурсов, а также уровнями врагов и оружия выглядят в Far Cry: New Dawn скорее лишними и абсолютно не к лицу серии. Хочется верить, что разработчики увидят, что в новой игре понравилось геймерам, а что нет и сделают новую часть не хуже, чем Far Cry: New Dawn и Far Cry 5.

Far Cry New Dawn may be a shorter Far Cry experience, but it’s one of the most fun games in the series since Blood Dragon. The bizarrely colourful post-apocalyptic world is far more enjoyable to explore than the drab pre-bombing Hope County of Far Cry 5, and the Mad Max-style enemies are a lot more fun to take on than the Peggies. While the story’s mostly nonsense, with a few infuriating moments, and it’s undoubtedly all a cut-down experience - it never feels like a sub-par one, or even “just” an expansion. Far Cry New Dawn is the most enjoyment I’ve had with the series for a long time. Now, if only we had a full game like this…

The amount of crafting and exploring so that you can craft, as well as a couple of minor issues, put a damper on an otherwise fantastic world, and fun game experience.

But for the most part, Far Cry New Dawn is fun, and that’s the only thing that matters. There is more than enough content to never feel that you’re grinding (although you are), and it fulfills one of the weirdest human fascinations, and that’s the life after a world-encompassing cataclysm. And best of all, the entirety of the game can be played in co-op mode.

Micky and Lou thankfully follow the Far Cry formula by being complete psychopaths in their own way, though it’s a shame that the story doesn’t give you much of their back story and deeper motivations. When you finally do come up against them in the finale, it’ll likely be the least fun you’ll have in the entire game (but it’s still worth pushing through to get to the end). There’s a lot to like about Far Cry: New Dawn, though its price point is admittedly not one of those things; if you’ve a backlog, you might want to consider waiting on its price to drop before you dive in.

New Dawn adds a bit while keeping everything running the same way. Over the years, I have enjoyed my time with all the Far Cry games and this is yet another one I had a lot of fun with. The setting is both fun and interesting to explore, the expeditions add a new layer, and while not as important as some other games, the RPG elements at least point players in the right direction for improving. Sure, it’s another Far Cry game, but that’s never been a bad thing to me. Pick it up for you’re looking for a smaller scale Far Cry adventure with a few new twists thrown in.

  《新曙光》在画面风格、RPG化转型、新玩法、新武器等方面进行了一定程度探索,但同时也保留了《孤岛惊魂》系列几乎所有的经典配方。这部作品是否适合你,更多地取决于你对育碧开放世界游戏玩法套路的接受程度。如果你依然对消耗数十个小时清哨站、扩版图、招伙伴、刷装备饱含热情,那么《新曙光》也千万不要错过。

PlayStation 4Destructoid (Feb 17, 2019)
The best narrative beats in New Dawn still fall short of reaching Far Cry 5's highest points, but this standalone sequel is a more well-rounded experience overall. Ubisoft knows when to be serious and when to let its silly flag fly. This time, the top priority was setting the stage for player-driven hijinks, not forcing story moments with a heavy hand. After all the doom and gloom sowed by Joseph Seed and his cohorts, Far Cry New Dawn resonates as a sorely-needed palate cleanser before the next full romp.

En este mundo postapocalíptico, los fantáticos religiosos ya no son el enemigo, pero eso no quiere decir que la paz haya sido instaurada. Las gemelas Mickey y Lou lideran al grupo de los Salteadores, unos bandidos capaces de matar por cualquier minucia. El juego sigue una senda continuista y presenta las mismas mecánicas que la entrega anterior, de manera que las misiones y las situaciones, a pesar de su variedad, no se prestan demasiado a la sorpresa. Destaca el afán de dotar al juego de elementos RPG, que se reflejan en los niveles de los enemigos y de las armas, así como en el sistema de progresión del personaje, que vuelve a emplear un árbol de habilidades basado en talentos, aunque en esta ocasión será muy importante gestionarlo adecuadamente. Por lo demás, se trata de un shooter de velocidad frenética muy divertido y recomendable, notablemente más corto que el original, lo que no es un aspecto negativo per se.

Far Cry New Dawn bietet in vielen Kriterien weniger als der Vorgänger, und deswegen haben wir uns auch entschieden, dem Spiel eine etwas niedrigere Wertung zu geben: Die Karte ist kleiner, die Missionsanzahl begrenzter, Flugzeuge spielen keine Rolle, mit der Story kommt man rascher durch. Und dann wird natürlich viel recycelt: Waffen, Landschaften, Spielmechaniken. Für immerhin 45 Euro ist diese 10- bis 15-stündige Open-World-Kampagne zu dünn, um in die 80er-Wertungsregionen vorzustoßen. Und jetzt kommt das große Aber. Far Cry New Dawn hat Stärken, die dazu führen, dass es mir persönlich teils mehr Spaß macht als Far Cry 5. Der Quasi-Nachfolger verzichtet auf diese furchtbar nervigen »Du fällst bewusstlos um und wirst entführt«-Sequenzen, schenkt sich größtenteils den aufgesetzten Kultisten-Quatsch und konzentriert sich auf das, was mir bei einem Singleplayer-Shooter am wichtigsten ist: launige Schießereien.

Far Cry New Dawn sets out to continue the story where Far Cry 5 left off in a fresh new take on what the apocalypse means. The detail in every aesthetic is absolutely gorgeous, and the sense of isolation when out on the road feels eerie but real. The system for upgrading Prosperity means you always have something important to do and the game does a good job of putting you in the shoes of someone trained to survive, however the lack of creative new weapons, apocalyptic customization, and what feels like less content than its predecessor really hold New Dawn’s potential back. If Far Cry 5 didn’t exist, New Dawn could easily have been a new narrative on its own, but because we have something close to compare it to the only saving grace for its fewer features is it’s reduced launch price. If you had a good time in Far Cry 5 and enjoy lite survival mechanics, you’ll have a blast tearing through Hope County, but as a stand-alone Far Cry entry it doesn’t quite hit its mark.

WindowsWay Too Many Games (Mar 27, 2019)
The storyline is not a great selling point and could have been handled better, but it is good enough to provide an adequate narrative to keep the game moving and doesn’t take itself too seriously. For those that know and love the franchise, New Dawn should be a welcome addition as it attempts some new ideas while not sacrificing any of what you love in a Far Cry game.

Far Cry: New Dawn is een leuk tussendoortje en absoluut een vermakelijke game als je van Far Cry 5 genoten hebt. In coöp komt dit deel, net als z'n voorganger, het beste tot z'n recht en je zult op die manier ook het meeste plezier aan de game beleven. De kanttekeningen van Far Cry 5 zijn helaas nog wel steeds aanwezig, zoals een mindere AI en een toch wat kale wereld, waarin je soms wel erg weinig mensen tegenkomt. Natuurlijk, dat is deels te danken aan de setting, maar het is bij momenten wel erg leeg. Verder is het niet per se verplicht, maar om het verhaal beter te begrijpen en om sneller wegwijs te worden in de game, is het handig om Far Cry 5 van te voren gespeeld te hebben. Afsluitend kunnen we zeggen dat we ons zeker vermaakt hebben met deze game, maar de herhaling zorgt er wel voor dat we niet zo weggeblazen werden als toen door Far Cry 5.

As someone who loves the Far Cry formula and will take my fix wherever I can get it, revisiting Far Cry 5’s slightly reworked open-world map in New Dawn proves there’s still quite a bit of joy to be found in clearing outposts and generating as much chaos as possible, in single-player or co-op. I could’ve done without the silly story and disappointing final boss, but Expeditions are a thrilling new mode, and the story missions are exciting more often than not. New Dawn is an enjoyable diversion while we wait for Far Cry’s next big thing.

Far Cry New Dawn is a refined but unexciting adventure. For those who have exhausted all the previous Far Cry games and are still craving more, New Dawn will scratch that itch but those hoping that it might advance the core gameplay are going to be disappointed.

Xbox OneTrueAchievements (Feb 14, 2019)
Far Cry New Dawn continues the series' year-long descent into self-parody with this uninspired sequel. The spinoffs for Far Cry are usually very exciting, previously taking us to an alternate future or the ancient past. In New Dawn we return to Hope County, now with 300% more pink. Neither the premise nor the execution of the setting and story ever justify the project, but for fans who haven't tired of the series' formula yet, you can't really go wrong with more of the same when it's well done. It's mechanically tight and often engaging while it lasts. Let's just hope New Dawn is actually the setting sun for this version of Far Cry. The series could really use a makeover soon.

PlayStation 4Game Informer Magazine (Feb 14, 2019)
The core formula of this series holds up, but New Dawn struggles to make worthwhile contributions to it. Beyond the expedition missions, little about New Dawn actually feels new, and the only interesting narrative threads are the tie-ins to Far Cry 5. When all the best parts of a new game are the old parts, it’s hard to be excited about what comes next.

From a big picture perspective, Far Cry: New Dawn is fine. It hits a lot of checkboxes that have come to define what Far Cry is and manages to wring some newness and intrigue out of its reused map. While the storytelling is even more unfocused than the previous game (though much less disappointing, due to a noticeable walkback on pretense), new gameplay additions like breezy RPG progression and the Expedition missions make it a fun ride all the way through. Far Cry: New Dawn still has a lot of familiar snags, but the overall experience makes for a solid weekend or two of Hollywood-style gaming.

WindowsPC World (Feb 14, 2019)
Great changes, all told. Far Cry: New Dawn is surprisingly satisfying to play, and enticed me to explore outside the bounds of the main story more than its predecessors ever did. Between the Treasure Hunts, the Expeditions, the reworked outposts and weapons systems, a hypothetical Far Cry 6 is working from a solid blueprint.

Whilst Far Cry New Dawn isn't a completely new experience, it does have a few features that give it new life, and despite the bugs and weak story, it was nice revisiting Hope County.

Schon Far Cry 5 ruhte sich für meinen Geschmack zu sehr auf den Stärken der Vorgänger aus. New Dawn ändert daran nix: Zwar fehlt die 5 im Titel, doch trotzdem ist das nichts anderes als ein umfangreiches, durchweg spaßiges und eigenständig lauffähiges Add-on. Doch leider macht es nicht genug daraus: Die Story wird nur lauwarm fortgesetzt und driftet zunehmend in Richtung Fantasy ab, dazu gibt's zwei Schurkinnen, deren Motivation mir bis zum Ende schleierhaft geblieben ist. Auch das Setting hätte sicher mehr ermöglicht als rosa Blumen und grelle Graffitis. Warum die ganze Mühe mit dem Endzeit-Szenario, wenn man so wenig daraus macht? Das Gameplay dagegen überzeugt nach wie vor, denn die Kernstärken - flüssiges Ballern und Schleichen in einer dynamischen Welt - machen genau so viel Spaß wie in den Vorgängern.

Il faut reconnaître à Far Cry New Dawn une certaine volonté de casser les codes. En proposant notamment quelques éléments RPG qui viennent atténuer l’action omniprésente dans les précédents, en s’appuyant sur des phases plus originales ou offrant un rythme différent, en misant sur plusieurs séquences annexes rejouables venant “challenger” les joueurs… S’il convainc par son contenu varié ainsi que par quelques passages inspirés, il se prend aussi occasionnellement les pieds dans le tapis. En témoignent ces phases traînant en longueur et utilisant un mécanisme jusqu’à l’écoeurement, des boss tombant dans le piège pénible du sac à PV, même avec un équipement approprié, le tout enrobé d’une trame principale à la narration convenue et en panne d’idées sur son scénario. Reste une prise en main solide et un mariage d’univers heureux entre la licence Far Cry et le post-apo façon Mad Max, qui suffisent à passer un moment amusant à défaut de faire de cet opus un must-have de la série.

New Dawn’s post-apocalyptic landscape makes for a more focused version of the Far Cry package, which is great if you just want to kill time capturing outposts and hunting animals.

Ich spiele es lieber als Metro Exodus, mit dem es sich zwar horrende KI-Schwächen und das Endzeit-Szenario teilt, dieses aber komplett anders interpretiert. Wie kein anderes Far Cry seit Blood Dragon präsentiert sich dieses als rassiger Arcade-Shooter in Egosicht. Im Detail zeigen zwar sowohl die Geschichte mit ihren mitunter nicht markant herausgearbeiteten Figuren als auch manche Teile der Hochglanzkulisse oder das Treffer-Feedback Schwächen, während der Lagerausbau oberflächlich bleibt und sein Potenzial nicht ausschöpft. Doch mit seinen Erkundungsreizen und den actionreichen Gefechten sowohl gegen die durchgeknallten Highwaymen als auch Amok laufende Wildtiere wird eigentlich genug geboten, um sich auch jenseits der Kernspielzeit von etwa 15 bis 20 Stunden (auch abhängig von der Art der Fortbewegung zu den Missionszielen) gut zu unterhalten.

There's a lot of potential in the ideas seeded in New Dawn, but there isn't enough room for many of them to breathe and feel fully realized. Not the post-apocalyptic theme, not the RPG mechanics, not the weapons, vehicles, plot, or characters. Advancing through the adventure is an enjoyable experience, especially once you get your superhuman powers, but this is largely because Far Cry 5's combat and progression models remain compelling enough to propel you forward. For its part, New Dawn is a palatable but unremarkable spin-off that feels like it could have achieved so much more.

PlayStation 4Slant (Feb 21, 2019)
By the time New Dawn reaches its rushed third act, it’s broken down entirely. After failing to convey what it might be like to live through nuclear war, the game simply begins to emulate what films like Mad Max have already depicted about the end of days. The last few levels forgo the open-world features and varied weaponry that make the Far Cry games worth playing for and instead make their way down a post-apocalyptic checklist: a Thunderdome-like fight club, a demolition derby, and even a prison break. New Dawn is too self-aware by half—especially when it comes to side quests, all of which are played for laughs—and spends too much time recycling concepts from other media as opposed to contributing anything new to either the open-world explorer genre or the more niche genre of post-apocalyptic video games.
