Excerpt: Far Cry is the first game from German developers Cry Tek, like Valve did in 1998; they appeared from nowhere and released one of the most technically advanced, gripping, and downright fun games ever. So, can you really compare Far Cry to Half Life - a game that's considered by many as the greatest game on any format ever? Or could it even be even better?! The answer-no, but it comes closer then any game has done before in knocking Half Life off its throne.
An amazing game thats pure bliss to play, you like FPS you need this game

Excerpt: Every so often a game pops up that stands out from the others, a game that makes you appreciate all the details however small, a game that plays as well as it looks and i can say far cry is one of those games. With intense gameplay, gorgeous scenery and amazing graphics, far cry is a must buy for any first person shooter fan (like myself) it also comes with online play (however the single player is better) Its set in the south pacific in a massive free roaming jungle...
Excerpt: "...diving into waters (which is far more realistic than diving & swimming in previous games). The storyline is just ok, you are a soldier trying to figure out what the korean army is so secretly investigating in the island, which turns out to be some secret alien artifact which will wake up an ancient race, nothing new, yet well acomplished. The gameplay is very good, easy handling of weapons and moving your character around. Weapons are just common ...
Excerpt: Crytek really astonished everyone with this great game. You play as Jack Carver, trapped on a tropical island where nearly everyone is your enemy. That itself is exciting. What is so good about Far Cry is the graphics and physics of the game. Prepare for astonishing water effects, excellent lighting and realistic explosions. Exploring the jungle, either in the night or day is a lot of fun... especially when equipped with an MP5, sniper rifle, knife and a pistol.
Excerpt: On maximum settings this is a great game, the game is now a couple of years old but you wouldn't think that to play it. Its a good first person shooter, It can get a bit boring and repetitive like most games, but you're driven trying to get further and further into the game as you do it gets more and more challenging! Its not the greatest game but its certainly not the worst either, it can be picked up quite cheaply now second hand (and new) and is worth the money.
A far cry from being a bad game, and at a budget you cant go wrong

Excerpt: In far cry you play as Jack carver who is a skipper of a charter boat service, he gets washed up on a mysterious chain of islands in micronesia. Here he discovers some very unusual secrets.... Gameplay Although far cry appears to be huge and open ended it is actually quite linear but it gives a good illusion of freedom. There are several vehicles to commandeer such as: jeeps, hang gliders and patrol boats.

Pros: Brillian graphics, testing gameplay, solid physics system
Cons: Enemies towards the end of the game spoil it, need a good pc
Excerpt: "...games strongpoint, I find its far too complex and boring trying to even research so I just carried on through the levels using common sense. That is to shoot anything that moves. There are no brains required really in this game, just some common sense when fighting against the computer AI - ducking out of their sight and trying your best to creep around. Probably the most impressive feature of this game is the beautiful surroundings and incredible ...
Excerpt: " This is a great game! I upgraded my PC for this game and ragged the cry-engine settings up to full blast. When i talk to people about FPS i always bring this game up as refernce to what a beutiful game is. Infact, it is so enjoyable to look at that once i took a boat around an island and i found a beach that i just would have done anything to visit. I mean, the water, the sand, the graphics, the textures, the physics, the draw distance, ...
