Review | Far Cry 6 Cows: Insanity (PC)

Far Cry 6 Vaas: Insanity proved to be a great choice for an in-game adventure, but one that will only be enjoyed by those who already know the villain.

Insanity! Total and perfect insanity. It is no coincidence that this DLC released for Far Cry 6 has this name, right after the main protagonist of this release: Bows. the famous villain of Far Cry 3 is back, in a unique way and with a totally psychological adventure.

About the game

Become the villain, enter the mind of Montenegro, from Far Cry 3, and face your inner demons in a brand new episode of DLC, unlike any previous Far Cry experience. Reveal the story behind this iconic villain, exploring unique locations in a twisted version of the Rook Islands to obtain keys and escape your own mind in this die-and-try gameplay experience.


Basically and straight to the point, it's the same as every game in the series and what's in Far Cry 6. Going beyond that, it's “raining in the wet”. The most important thing is the style in which we find Vaas. A completely "crazy" character, now trapped inside his own mind, where we'll discover some things from his past and what led to him becoming the villain of the third game in the franchise.

Another aspect is that because it is something insane, certain facts of the story will be distorted, as it is a vision of Vaas. So, if you don't know the story of Far Cry 3, you might get lost with this DLC. Therefore, playing or even taking a summary of the story, it will be important to have a better use of the story, otherwise it will end up being just another adventure, even if it is equally exciting.

Anyway, even if you don't know the story of Vaas, it's not something that will hinder your game, as it will give you tips on what to do. So, stay calm and play calmly.


The design remains the same as Far Cry 6, without losing anything and just adding some new things, as the title is Insanity. Follow tracks, which are now in red, see some marine beings (I won't put which one so as not to miss the comic part), in addition to the character's comments, make this DLC something odd. It's like playing a completely different Far Cry title after the sixth adventure, as you're sure to forget about all the happenings in Yara.

Choosing Vaas for this DLC was a great move for Ubisoft, as he is one of the most remembered villains in Far Cry and placed as one of the best among games. And if it had a film adaptation, it would definitely be in a Top 5 of the best villains of all time.

But back to the game, which isn't something very time-consuming and you'll be able to finish it pretty quickly, especially if you're patient and pay attention to detail, this DLC is a lot of fun not only for Far Cry fans, but also for Breaking Bad fans.

Why? Simple. We have Giancarlo Esposito playing Antón Castillo, the game's new villain. And for those who know him, you know very well that he played Gustavo “Gus” Fring in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. That's why it's even comical to link the insanity of the Breaking Bad series to what's going on with Vaas. It almost looks like he became one of Walter White's clients, or rather Heisenberg.

Worth it?

As always, Far Cry's content is beyond its style of shooting game and yes in its plot that consecrated it. The franchise has always had strong, charismatic characters that players can relate to, hate, love or all of them together. This DLC featuring Vaas shows how much Ubisoft is paying attention to the Far Cry series and to the taste of its fans.

It's not just a way to sell more Far Cry 6, it's a way to expand the way you tell stories in-game. And Vaas being a character and not a skin as it happens in certain titles is a welcome gift to all fans and those who want to know why he is so loved and hated by players.
