Summary: I started Farcry with high hopes for it. It looked good, sounded good and was hailed as one of the best shooters since half-life. I began playing it and found that it was all that was promised. The graphics are just plain stunning, with the absolute largest environments I have seen in any game ever.
Summary: ...but the game has to be one of the most frustrating first person shooters ever created. First things first: The graphics engine is awesome. This is easily the most beautiful game world ever created.
not as good as demos, but worth the dough, for the outsides

Summary: got full version on thursday (25th). played about 18 hours since then. on level 14 of 20. I LOVED the demos, played them for hours and hours. the full game has alot of linear indoor stuff as well though (just move down a tube). sometimes there may be 2 routes, but that is not nonlinear.
Excerpt: At a first glance Far Cry 4 doesn't differ much from the 3rd, however with many of the annoying features ironed out. The map has a much more varied terrain than the others in the series and, although a similar size to the islands of 3 the game feels much, much larger.
Pros: Kyrat, Graphics, new wildlife, new gameplay mechanics
Cons: Not many new weapons, less memorable characters, multiplayer
Excerpt: This is quite an old game but PC Zone have claimed that it is the most exciting shooter since Half Life. This is a bold claim. The story goes that you wash up on a tropical island after your ship crashes only to find that the island is swarming with armed mercenaries.
Excerpt: Made back in 2004 Far Cry is a first person shooter made by Crytek. The game is set in the South Pacific and supports both single player and multiplayer. It was released for the Xbox in 2005 and a sequel was released in 2008.
Summary: ... but what was a great shooter is marred by technical problems. But with a track record like Ubisoft's, what was I thinking? It is visually good and colourful, with some excellent water effects; very good indeed.
if you like the 3d world kind of game you cant go wrong

Excerpt: Single player would be compared to grand theft auto multiplayer to call of duty or counter strike. If you dont compare this game to other games it is truly a good game, but once the ocomparisons start creeping in, it falls short.
