Ranking the Far Cry Games from Best to Worst


Now that Ubisoft has released Far Cry 6, it’s time to take a look at the entire series of Far Cry games. Ubisoft’s first-person shooter franchise has been set in exotic locations, even if the French company broke with tradition in 2018 by setting Far Cry 5 in the US state of Montana.

Nonetheless, the Far Cry games are some of the best when it comes to delivering first-person action in war-torn locations. They also feature larger than life villains such as Far Cry 4’s Pagan Min. So without further ado, here follows a list of the Far Cry games ranked from best to worst.

1. Far Cry 3

Ubisoft shocked the world back in 2012 with Far Cry 3. This was an open-world game with ball-breaking action and stunning visuals, which left its predecessor Far Cry 2 in the dust. Some at the time some called Far Cry 3 “Skyrim with guns”, which fits the bill perfectly.

Despite touching perfection at times, though, the game does have its share of hiccups. The over-talkative Jason Brody isn’t a great protagonist, and the open-world activities do get repetitive after a while. There’s only so many times you can climb a radio tower or skin a tapir without yawning… Nonetheless, the game’s gunplay is addictive, and its rich open world make it one of the best action games of all time, and the best Far Cry too.
