Discussion: Are ‘Far Cry 6’ and ‘Kena: Bridge of Spirits’ worth the hype?

Ember Lab

Rappler contributor Naveen Ganglani assemble a gang of geeks to discuss these two big games

Far Cry 6, Ubisoft’s latest release, and Kena: Bridge of Spirits, a debut title by Ember Lab studio, are two of the games that have many of us stuck to our couches with controllers in hand as of late.

What exactly makes both Far Cry and Kena enjoyable? Are they worth the hype? Is the utility good? What unique concepts were introduced by the developers of both high-profile games?

These are some important questions, or “little things,” that can determine whether or not a game is a success – at least for the average consumer.

Of course, it’s also important to point out that these two projects, like many others, have their issues to work through. They are truly enjoyable, but once in a while, minor issues can lead to momentary annoyances. 

For instance, does this latest FC have enough variance to separate itself from its predecessors? Or did they simply add high-profile names to a rotating wheel of similarities?
