Pretty Good

by syphonmaster@msn.com on 7/8/2006

I've played many games and this one isn't too bad. It takes 6 discs to load. It takes forever to get to the last level. Gets a little boring after a while. I would definately get it for this price.

I found this game to be very entertaining. The main thing that struck me at first after the awkward beginning sequence was that the graphics looked great. the trees seemed like trees and the water seemed like water. weapons shoot and sound accurate. however the stealth mode was not even close or necessary. bad guys have the ability to hear like super man and see through trees and flora and fauna. driving is very awkward and firing weapons from vehicles is hary carey. i would have to say the ai is too good, but that is a good thing. nothing funner than outsmarting the computer. the only thing about this game i dont like is that controlling the vehicles is soooo difficult. and they have cool vehicles like a boat with a freakin rocket launcher. this is another excellent game that almost had it. if it werent for the superman ai and the sucky vehicle control it would have been good, if not perfect.

Review Far Cry is, in everyway, the best first-person shooter I've ever played. From the sublime, deeply textured and truly immersive graphics to meaningful audio and the type of artificial intelligence that makes you question whether you really are playing against a computer - Far Cry heralds a new age of FPS with a game that is nearly perfect in everyway.

Review Unlike most games the bad guys in Far Cry really do have a mind of their own so its not just a case of running through and popping the odd enemy here and there, the mercenaries in this game are highly clued up and will detect you whether you move slowly, take cover or simply make them paranoid, you will not get past these guys easily.
