Far Cry 5’s main difference from its predecessor is the elimination of the annoying radio tower system. You can unlock the vast and challenging Montana map by exploring it.
The biggest drawback of this open-world game is the characterization and storytelling. The ending can be said to be mindblowing but annoying, the main character (you) in this game doesn’t even speak at all, which of course cuts your closeness points with the characters in the game.

Travel through a world so beautiful, you’ll be disappointed that it only exists in the game. Eastshade is a must-have game for those of you who like to explore adventures full of art and beauty.
