Just been to pick this up, and as a huge fan of the series I'll be looking forward to putting a few hours into it over the weekend.

All the bits and bobs I've seen online have looked great and I'm hoping for the most polished Far Cry experience to date.

Anyone else getting it?

Local indie game shop.

It's very good so far. 

It does what all Far Cry games do but there's definitely a little more polish in there. The gunplay is very satisfying and having 'followers' with differing traits is a nice touch.

If I found 3 and 4 kind of enjoyable but ultimately average with awful structuring will I find 5 any better?

I've got the hope county edition with the big deerskull thing & the x mondo edition with the vinyl soundtrack turning up on Tuesday :)

Farcry is one of the very few games i am happy to buy the stupid season pass versions of day one

If you're a fan of the series then from what I've seen so far you won't be disappointed.

I know they are all the same but i don't care, They are fun to me and along with being happy to buy day one it is one of the few games i will actually start & finish to 100% pretty much immediately rather than chucking it on the shelf of 687 other half finished/barely started games.

The only real niggle i have with them comes down to the way i play them. I like to get all the hunting/upgrades & side mission stuff done and open up all of the map early rather than focusing on the story which tends to leave me a bit overpowered when doing some of the what should be harder outposts

Really really enjoying this.

It's got that 'must do that' compulsion that 3,4 and Primal had but with even more polish.

Very impressed so far.

How are you playing already?

Most indies wil let stuff go early to regulars & shopto usually still deliver a day or two early so you can often get Tuesday releases from them on a Saturday. You can also get lucky with supermarkets if they get their deilvery on friday as they are so used to the old friday release schedule they often just chuck them straight out on the shelf :)

I've never played a Far Cry game before but this looks amazing, going to buy.

I’m sure you won’t be disappointed, I hadn’t played one before FC4, but they are awesome games. I then went back and played 3 and blood dragon they’re both great. Far Cry 4 was such a immersive one, fingers crossed this is the same. Getting it tomorrow am so should be playing most of the day, fingers crossed.

I thought 4 dipped personally, not as good as 3 and I couldn't even bring myself to play primal, I think the 4 year gap will have done the series good

gamespot review in progress is a 9 so far so I'll be picking it up in the morning

Got it downloaded and ready to go for when I get home...

Tried it at 12:05 this morning and it was having none of it, probably for the best :D

Slightly disappointed to see slightly more average reviews from other sites apart from Gamespot and IGN but im sure I will love it, I skipped Primal which should help freshen it up.

If I could give one tip from the off, it's to get a 'companion' who specialises in long range combat as early as possible, and if they have a medic perk then all the better. They are great fun in general play but especially useful when you're taking over the bases.

Just picked up my first 'Specialist' companion last night (you get these by doing specific missions). She has her own helicopter which is bonus, and she also has a habit of saying things like 'Well, slap my tits!' :D
