Have you finished Far Cry 5 and want a slimmed-down, brain-free, complication-less version of it? Then Hours of Darkness is for you. No story, no missions, no stores, few vehicles, barely any dialogue, cutscenes, or characters - just you, an open map, and people to kill and blow up. That’s it. There are things to find, but essentially, this DLC is all about the shooting. Normally we’d be all over that, but it’s also very bland. The map has very little of interest, everything looks washed out and identical, and we were bored very quickly. Oh, and enemies only offer a challenge once they start cheating and spawning behind you.
If you already own the Season Pass for Far Cry 5 give it a go, but we doubt you’d want to buy Hours of Darkness separately. Save your money for the far more fun sounding zombie and alien expansions."
"Hours of Darkness is the first of three pieces of DLC currently planned for Far Cry 5, and I can only pray it’s not sign of what’s to come. ... I had no idea it would actually turn out to just be brutally boring."
"While it comes free with the game’s $30 season pass, so does Far Cry 3: Classic Edition—which, for all its faults, remains a much more interesting and vibrant jungle to return to."
"The NUKE, are you crazy?" "Oh relax, it's got a very small yield. Just enough ..."
Yeah I hate to say it, but this was a poor first impression of the season pass... I don't think it bodes well for the next 3-4 months
I'm so surprised that so much effort went into adding new content (even new weapons, animals and vehicles) and so little was done to flesh it out more. I really expected there to be a few story missions (rescue teammate A, rescue teammate B, take out area big badguy / fortress, get to the choppa!). Stunned that this is essentially a very long "journey" map from arcade.
I... just do not understand the decision making at Ubisoft. They go 3/4 of the way and then just drop the ball. And not just once, but sadly most of the time
And all this science, I don't understand... It's just my job, five days a week
I've seen Ubisoft has resume his games in: go to briefing mission, go to the place and solve it, done (all this take 5 minutes) I have played ACO, GRW and FC5 and are all the same, FC3 (more this) and FC4 has long story missions secuences.
