OK so while the logic of why the army doesn’t charge is illogical, at least they gave a reason.
My first few hours with Far Cry 5 was an interesting mix of Bow, silenced machine gun and pistol.
Even so it provides a variety of interesting moments; glance for a few moments beyond the action and you see a group of characters that are surprisingly well thought out if not executed sub-par… and for a few moments they did have an effect on me to question which side I’m really on.
WARNING: as I was starting to type some of these things on this blog I was making myself uncomfortable, some of the themes bubbling under the surface are disturbing in this game and the conclusions are damning even to myself… if you trigger easily, don’t go below the MORE line. This was also written before I saw a spoiler that proved the Father was outright EVIL but the key thing is the double edged nature of what I see as the hidden theme of Far Cry 5.
