Far Cry

Game Over Online
26 May 2005
  • Excerpt: It’s always a pleasure to review a game that brings something new and interesting to an otherwise over done genre. After reading what Far Cry was going to offer the FPS community, I wanted to give it a go and see if it was worth its weight in advertisement. The opening movie for Far Cry doesn’t really inform the player of the situation they’ve gotten them selves into. It’s more of a collage of different scenes and memories.

FarCry

Just RPG
22 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Most FPS's have the common space station, spy flick, or military shooter theme. FarCry deviates completely from the known formula and instead puts you into a beautiful island environment, which is definitely a far cry from paradise.

The Gamers Temple
1 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Far Cry is a very good game. So good, in fact, that it has raised the bar for all other action games to come. Not only will it capture more than its fair share of game of the year awards, it will become one of those games that permanently implants itself in the collective memory of action gamers. What makes it such a great game? The short answer is excellent enemy AI, incredible environments, a wide variety of weapons and vehicles, and a great storyline.

The Next Level
7 April 2004
  • Excerpt: I know you're wondering why you ask such stupid questions, but your ignorance is acceptable. All year the gaming press had led you to think that there were only a few PC games coming out this year that mattered. This is the year of the big-name sequels, after all, and so unless you kept your ear very close to the ground, you probably didn't hear all that much about Far Cry , a first-person shooter developed by an obscure German developer, Crytek, and published by a...

  • Conclusion: Oh and another thing, I'm sorry for mouthing off about how the chums at IGN gave this game a glowing review, because I went ahead and did the same thing! DOH! All right, guys, you're allowed to spend one night with VADAR as a sign of good faith. (That's a reward??!! - Ed.
  • Pros: Has many of the same qualities as the original Half-Life, level design, CryEngine, sound effects, plenty of content, excellent level editor (tremendous modding possibilities);
  • Cons: AI glitches, trite storyline, a few silly taunts, some of the monsters look ugly (but not in a good way).
