Far Cry 6 Features – OCD Players Beware

Far Cry 6 has been one of my favourite games this year - I've enjoyed the story, how it unfolds, and the cool people you meet along the way. These are all staples of the Far Cry franchise, and most open world Ubisoft franchises for that matter. But the more I play Far Cry 6, the more I became concerned. "I'm not clearing the map! WHY AM I NOT CLEARING THE MAP!"

Far Cry 6 Features – Using a Smart Phone in Far Cry 6

Is 2021, and Far Cry 6 is helping us do what we already do in real life all the time - play on our phones, a lot. In previous Far Cry games, we often would use a set of binoculars to scout out enemy bases, tagging enemies, and more. That made a ton of sense, and was enjoyable enough of an experience. While I'm happy that the new tagging system highlights the weaknesses of enemies, I'm having a bit of difficulty extending my belief to tagging using a camera on a cell phone.

There is little question that Far Cry 6 is the biggest title out right now. With big names like Giancarlo Esposito attached to it and the franchise's stellar reputation, all eyes have been on the latest installment to see how it evolves the series. At a time where there are still next-gen console shortages in many areas due to global circumstances, we thought it might be relevant to discuss what it feels like to hop into Far Cry 6 on previous gen consoles, as many gamers may be forced to do while the supply chain replenishes.

Far Cry 6 Features – Enemy Weaknesses Key to Success

A group of writers here at GamesReviews have been playing through Far Cry 6 so we can provide you tons of content right ahead of launch.

This title is a remake of the 2005 title Super Monkey Ball DX, which itself was a compilation of Super Monkey Ball 1 and Super Monkey Ball 2.

FIFA 22 Comes with Balanced, Slower Play

FIFA 21 has been characterized by many as a goal fest, where trick mastery meant filling the net, and solid positional play meant...well, sometimes never being rewarded for playing soccer the way it's done in the pros. But with a few gameplay updates to FIFA 22, goal fest is over, and a more balanced experience is shinning through, one that emphasizes positional play and crisp, accurate passing, as opposed to flipping balls over people's heads, nutmegging them, and more.

FIFA 22 Tutorial is Outstanding

When a tutorial is required, either for new players or because a new concept has been introduce into a game, so often companies use the most boring way to show off the new mechanic, or teach the controls. EA Sports has tried to do away with that type of crap, and instead have created a fantastic short story experience that walks players through the basics of running, passing, shooting and more, all set on the streets of Paris, and in the famous stadium of PSG!

Farming Simulator 22 Supports Cross Play

I still can remember when the Farming Simulator franchise was a single player experience through and through. Fun still, yes of course, but owning a farming empire is always more fun with friends, especially since it allows you to expand at an exponential rate. So many people playing farming simulator solo miss out on so much of what the game has to offer just because of time! Then Farming Simulator got multiplayer, and this year, we are getting crossplay as well! Let's take a peak!
