Summary: With all the different kinds of computers, the EXACT DETAILS of the specifications NEEDED to run the software needs to be STATED PRECISELY - - - This software would NOT EVEN BEGIN to load on my computer; Win7 64bit
Summary: Introduction: in Far Cry, you play as Jack Carver, a guy who's been hired to sail a mysterious woman around the Pacific. However, Jack's ship suddenly comes under attack. After washing ashore on a tropical island, sans the mysterious woman, Carver must investigate his surroundings so that he can...
Summary: Far Cry is a big leap into open world havock, of course the game is dated due to the fact that it was released more then 5 years ago but the fact is that this game was a future look into what open world games would be like.
Summary: Even though there are several good reviews already here, and this game is already a couple of years old, I still feel compelled to put my two cents in about my favorite game. I've played a number of other first person shooters, but no other game comes even close.
Summary: Ok, so let's start with what I do like so we can get that out of the way quickly. The graphics and settings are amazing. The islands are rendered beautifully with huge draw distances and lush foliage. The gun fights are actually pretty frantic and the vehicles can be cool at times.
Wonderful environment/effects, gameplay is average

Summary: Far Cry is going to be one of those games where either you love it or you uninstall it the first week. I recently invested in a Dell XPS 600 and had no problem playing this game. Those gamers with less than 1GB of RAM may experience difficulty, as the graphics eat up memory.
Summary: I just wanted to write and say that, thus far, this game is one of the best games I've ever played. The AI is astonishing, and for the most part, is the reason this game never gets old. Flashy graphics are in EVERY game these days. The challenge is the fun part.
Summary: It may not be the best story ever told, but the game play is great. The general plot is standard--rescue a girl from a mad scientist on an island. The high points are good graphics, amazing scenery, and fun missions.
Summary: I am not an avid gamer with an over-built PC. I play these games more as a hobby or means of escape rather than a way of life. I just don't have that kind of time. Far cry is a great game to lose yourself in. The maps are expansive and, with the right video card, full of detail.
Summary: In response to all of the difficulties of installing, I noticed that the retail box has a warning in yellow that reads: "Notice: This game contains technology intended to prevent copying that may conflict with some disc and virtual drives.
