Update: it's really annoying how Ubisoft has obviously tried to inventivize you to pay for micro transactions. Example: enemies are harder to loot, they often disappear if you don't loot them quickly, and once you've killed the last enemy in an outpost they all disappear so you can't loot any of them after. This is all an obvious way of keeping your cash low so you're inventivized to pay for micro transactions. Not cool when I just bought a $99 game! Doesn't keep you from enjoying the game without the micro transactions, but loses a star for this deliberate greedy tactic.
A Far Cry from a Far Cry if you will.
My one complaint is that stealth is pretty much impossible this time around. In Far Cry 4 it was easy(ish) to wipe out an entire camp using stealth. In this version, the enemies have X-ray vision and a k9 level of hearing. If the devs could turn down the perceptiveness (or at least the cone of hearing/sight) it would be a perfect game!
Only thing I can really suggest is don't purchase a far cry game if you're gonna be disappointed because it plays like a farcry game. I would say the same thing for any game that's part of a series. Uncharted, assassin's creed, cod, etc
Skill progression is nice in that you get points and spend them as you wish without having to wait for a particular mission to unlock it (with 1-2 minor exceptions I'll get to).
Immense world with mountains, flats, and 'forests'. Structures differ a little (not too much) but you can quickly tell which ones can be explored (most) and which are locked up. And most structures have things in them you can use; medkits, ammo, equipment as well as their being random packages spread out all over to pick things up in. Very useful.
Planes and full helicopters were added and the controls are pretty good, though a tad annoying on the helicopter (yawing - steering left and right - is controlled on the right stick, but climb and descend are buttons, so trying to climb, turn, and fly forward is near impossible). Also, unlike the gyro in 4, the helicopters and planes can be armed, so they're helpful.
Weapons are plentiful to buy and easily picked up. Upgrades are pricey (optics, suppressor, magazine), but you'll find a couple guns you like and probably stick to them.
The storyline is somewhat 'believable' if you follow doomsday stories/conspiracies. Obviously taken to extremes, but sort of like 4, you can see it. Enemies have their levels from cannon fodder to stormtroopers of death, with the weapons for their levels sort of carried over from 4 (guys with heavy machine guns and flame throwers take forever to die).
You can hunt (and fish, which is a cool money maker and time waster), but the skins aren't used for upgrades; need cash for those. You can sell skins for cash, so it works out.
Unlike what someone else said, the only things I've found the "microtransactions" good for are fancy weapon purchases or car/plane/helicopter purchases. I found Assassins Creed Origins to almost necessitate microtransactions if you want to make any progress on the game without it taking forever. Far Cry 5 - Not really. Helpful, but you can get along fine and upgrade things without them.
Now the quirks and downsides:
Minimap is gone - Everything is on a compass bar on top. It's a bit annoying as it's white lettering and in the sun it's difficult to see. Also, there are useful plants for "homeopathics" but you have to really watch your terrain as you're walking through to see them flashing. Enemies at a distance show up on the compass, but as you get closer they're gone. I sort of like it because it has a tinge of realism, but it can be a pain.
Also, you can use the hunting homeopathic to see all living things close, but after the timer runs out, if you haven't tagged them through binoculars or optics, they go away. Annoyance.
Melee weapons. You can pick up a lot of them and switch them around. Yeah. Problem is, if you switch to a gun or something, your melee goes back to your hands, not the pipes or bats you pick up. P.I.A.
Speaking of: If you played the opening right in Far Cry 4, you could get all 4 holsters opened up pretty early so you're carrying a good mix through most of the game. In this one; you get 2 holsters from the start, but 3 and 4 are opened through skills, with 4 being one of the "super skills" (unlocks when you get enough of the others), so it's a hassle.
You're gonna die. A lot. I played the last three games in the series alright and while I had my fair share of dying, once I understood the AI, it was easy to stay alive except in the most extreme of missions. Here? It's pretty easy to die as their hearing and sight is near superhuman. The vest is near worthless and you go through it fast.
Character editing. Pretty much worthless as you don't see your character (unless you die a lot). The fact you can make it male or female has no bearing on the game; the game doesn't act differently if you choose one or the other. Hell, you don't have a name other then "Deputy" or "Rook". Absolutely pointless addition.
Story cuts - This is why it's 4 stars and not 3. The storyline is great and the cut scenes for them, while a little time consuming, are definitely involved. Pretty good script, all things being equal. But they weave in the enemy cut scenes by capturing you through various methods, somewhat randomly. It's triggered at a certain point, but there's no indication of what triggers it; you'll just get a warning you're being hunted and you can run, fight, or whatever, but it's part of the game play and you'll be captured and suffer through it. Like I said, the storyline and script are twisted enough that it's good, but they way they do it is silly. They make it seem like you can avoid it ("You're being hunted" is a prompt you get on the screen and you would think that if you stayed out of site or something, they wouldn't find you) but you can't and it has to happen.
I definitely like the game and since it's still early in release, it'll be interesting to see what they add to the DLC. But there are enough annoyances that keep it from being awesome. Still buy it.
