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: 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: 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.
Summary: This game has awesome graphics, sound, and enemy AI. The graphics are so detailed. Walking along, light hits your weapon through the trees, the foliage is thick, and the water looks real - very fluid. The colors are very vibrant in the jungle. The music and sound are very detailed.
Summary: I have to say, being a nerd, going to a nerd school, and having all nerd friends, ive seen, played, and bought ALOT of games. I have enjoyed some of the recent titles, such as HL2 and Doom 3. But i have to say, none of them are as good as this.
Summary: Half-Life 1.5. Enough said!!! Amazing scenery..the whole game takes place on a bunch of deserted tropical islands with beautiful beaches/water/trees and foliage crawling with baddies and then some..
Summary: I bought Far Cry right after it came out, and I just recently finished playing through the game as I had spurts where I wasn't able to sit down and spend any time with it. This is a very good game, and I'm saying that as a person who doesn't like shooters very much.
Summary: I've been into RPG's for a while, so this is the first pure FPS I've played in several months. I'm impressed! I mean really impressed! The graphics and huge maps for each level are mind boggling. I haven't been this blown away by a game's design since Tron.
Summary: I'm having great fun with this game despite running it on a mediocre system that can't run the game in full graphical flourish. I have a 2.0Ghz P4, 512Mb RAM and an ATI 9800 (the base model, not Pro or XT) card with 128Mb RAM. So it's decent but hardly cutting edge.
