    Overall, I really enjoyed this first issue and how well it tackled the themes of legacy, pride and chaos. It not only got me even more hyped to eventually play Far Cry 6, but also made me feel more clued up as to who these new characters are and helped me to start to understand their mind-sets and perspective. Every villain is the hero of their own story after all. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ricardo Denis May 21, 2021

    Far Cry: Rite of Passage is an ambitious character study of bad people. Hill and Borges treat the subject matter with the seriousness it deserves while also celebrating Far Crys rogues gallery. Its a strong companion to the game series and even deepens our understanding of the sandbox world Far Cry presents gamers with. Hill and Borges make it a treat to get up close and personal with evil men. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone May 22, 2021

    Far Cry #1 takes, from what I can see, the best elements of the Far Cry 6, and melds them into a comprehensible tale that concentrates on the strongest aspects of the story. While the reader can't engage in a first person shooter with this title, the lure of understanding what makes a dictator tick, and how a man becomes a monster, is certainly attractive.

    A calm story and recap of the events around a major villain in a prior video game help to characterize a new villain for the upcoming Far Cry 6 very well for newcomers and veteran players alike. Read Full Review

    It makes sense to call upon old Far Cry memories both in terms of the narrative and the fan service, but I do hope these future issues give Antn and Diego their due instead of relying solely on what came before. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn May 18, 2021

    It's hard to say if this first issue sets this series up for success. The confusing dialogue left me wondering what the point of this outing really was and why Vaas was used as a specific example in this case. But the rest of the creative team did well to bolster the story and the next issue will likely determine if this series is worth the read. Read Full Review

    If you are a fan of the games and Vaas Montenegro from Far Cry 3 then I would recommend this series, everyone else maybe take a look first before you jump in. Read Full Review

    Droning and inconsequential, Far Cry: Rite of Passage #1 does little to hook readers outside hardcore of franchise fans. Read Full Review

    As a fan of only Far Cry 3 I was a little excited to hear about them making a comic based off of the past three villain's from the last Far Cry titles. Something to expand the mythos of the world they created? Sure why not. The comic is decent, nothing special. It's mainly just promotional stuff for the next game. The art work in this is not bad but not amazing, the panels were probably my favorite part of this book. I wished it was more about the character Voss, then just the new villain giving some talking points about Voss to his son. The time we do see Voss, it's short with very little dialogue and no character moments that really stood out to me. Seemed like his story was just one big life metaphor.
