Ranking the Far Cry Games from Best to Worst

7. Far Cry New Dawn

Given what a smash hit Far Cry 5 was, it was inevitable that Ubisoft would release a follow-up. Far Cry New Dawn continues the story of its predecessor, and shares the same Montana location as Far Cry 5. Things have changed in Hope County though, as this takes place after the apocalypse which occurred at the end of Far Cry 5. But far from being a barren nuclear wasteland, Hope County is bright and colorful, with pink flowers dotting the landscape thanks to the “bloom effect”.

The series chaotic gameplay is still here, with a few additions too. A cross bow which fires saw blades lets you take down your enemies in style, while it’s great that Far Cry 4’s grenade launcher makes a return to the series. The new “expedition” missions whisk you away from Hope County to places like the Colorado Canyon for some fast-paced fun. Meanwhile, new companions like Timber the dog can help on missions and also ride on vehicles with you.

There’s nothing players haven’t already done before in the series though – taking over outposts, crafting and other side activities are present and correct, with new RPG mechanics to boot. Far Cry New Dawn’s story and new villains (twin sisters Mickey and Lou) are not up to much, making this a slightly deflating but tighter experience than Far Cry 5 was.
