“This game has a great story line and amazing graphics,...”

Written on: 21/07/2008 by swanndry93 (43 reviews written)

This game has a great story line and amazing graphics, its is a first person shooter game. The weapons in the game are really cool, and one of the many features of what the game has, lush environment, graphics
smart enemies, ect. I think that the trigens in this game are a bit stupid and silly, but then again a good game for the money… Read Full Review

“I found this game again recently after playing it in...”

Written on: 24/05/2007 by scopecreep (2 reviews written)

I found this game again recently after playing it in 2004 and found it to be as good as F.E.A.R. and Half-Life and better than Quake 4. When it came out in 2004, it needed loads of processing power and a solid graphics card then. Today, even with twin 7950s,and 2g of memory, it still struggles when eveything is turned on. Its really heavy on texture maps. If you download the HDR patch, it will need even more.

Its a superb game. I would heartily recommend it… Read Full Review

Ok but far too short in my opinion. If you were to rewrite it and add more stuff I'd be happy to re-rate.

“Upon it's much anticipated release, FarCry boasted...”

Written on: 17/04/2007 by Cognition (90 reviews written)

Upon it's much anticipated release, FarCry boasted graphics better than any other game of the time.

Playing with a powerful graphics card, more than 5 years on the graphics are still considerably good. Lines are smooth, and 3D models are nicely designed with a hybrid of styles - appearance is both cartoon like, but also realistic - an example being the water effects.

The main problem with this game is the poor narrative. I've completed FarCry twice now, and it's safe to say that it wasn't any… Read Full Review

I finished the Far Cry many times over but always on medium level of difficulty, sometimes with "AI" activated. This was already at the time I was living in US - almost over 2 years ago. The game is truly fascinating. Some minor tech. glitches not corrected even in the newest Update but overall it is a wonderful game. It does require a good PC and the best Video Card you can afford to fully utilize all the special effects and details.
<br/>If you have such gaming machine - set water quality to the highest and soak your feet in the lagoon.

Loads of games claim to be the first of their kind, but Far Cry really is.

Ai that hunts you down and is a genuine challenge
Beautiful graphics & great atmosphere.

Only a silly story and absurd difficulty curve let it down… Read Full Review

“When I bought Far Cry, I was impressed. It was...”

Written on: 09/09/2005 by amurrayx (48 reviews written)

When I bought Far Cry, I was impressed. It was released almost a year before Half-Life 2, and the graphics quality is just as good, except for the computerized people who do not look as life-like as those in HL2. The weapons are all based on real paramilitary/special Ops weapons (like the H&K MP5, and G36, or the M4 carbine). As a lone FPS without having a squad to work with, the first few levels of this game could be a training Sim for special Ops survival in hostile territory. It would have… Read Full Review

“FarCry = Max Payne 2? Ha ha.... ”

Written on: 12/04/2005 by dummy1977 (1 review written)

FarCry = Max Payne 2? Ha ha....

This is a great game for 20 somethings... it did for the 2004 First Person Shooter genre what Goldeneye 64 did for the genre in 97-98. Though I prefer squads and tactics, this is an entertaining excellent one man first person game with replay value. Intuitive gameplay.. it's not trying to be a sim.

And now going for 20 bucks, this is an insane value… Read Full Review

“I bought FarCry and read loads about it, but was...”

Written on: 10/12/2004 by TOMLEECEE (121 reviews written)

I bought FarCry and read loads about it, but was really disapointed when I tried to play it. It wouldn't install! It just kept giving me the alert "cannot find d:/game.cab." I did some research and it turns out that the game cannot be installed if you have a certain brand of cd/dvd drive. I had an LG cd-rw drive and was desperate to play Farcry, so splashed out on an NEC DVD-RW drive. It was all going well until I got the same message again. The drive I bought was also one of the 'incompatible'… Read Full Review

“FarCry - I don't buy many PC games but after reading...”

Written on: 07/10/2004 by brains (36 reviews written)

FarCry - I don't buy many PC games but after reading reviews & watching demos I was quite impressed & purchased the game. WOW, it looks & plays great. This must be the next ultimate first person shooting game after Call of Duty (another 10/10 game in my opinion). The graphics & sound qualities are of high stardard as expected from the requirements to run this game (1Ghz & 256MB).
The game involves unravelling a conspiracy set on tropical islands & fight your way through heavily arm… Read Full Review

FarCry is not perfect at all - just people never saw better games, like GTA Vice City, PainKiller, Max Payne 2.

Written on: 09/09/2005

I've played dozens of FPS games and Far Cry was the best to ever come out, equalled only by Half Life 2. If the PC used can't handle the superior technology, then maybe it would have gameplay like the other games listed in this particular review. The game is realistic, which means times of stalking, evading, and waiting, and times of intense firefights. It's about patience, strategy, and skill. In my opinion, the only players who won't love this game are those who do not like playing first person shooters.

Written on: 23/04/2004 by jabronibasher (22 reviews written)

Truly a next generation FPS, Far Cry delivers some amazing, photorealistic mediterranean environments. The level of exploration is huge and it has some of the most intelligent AI ever. Trust me, they'll actually scare you. The voices are above average, offering a movie like experience with cool cut scenes.
It includes an easy level editor that allows for direct play within it, ala Tony Hawk. And of course, multiplayer mode with basic modes like Deathmap and capture the flag. Overall, this is a… Read Full Review
