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 find her and eventually rescue her from an army of heavily armed mercenaries.
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. Since its one of the first in its class there are some bugs but you can barley notice them. The game play is very good, but the AI makes it suffer a bit.
Excerpt: Far Cry is a first-person shooter game for the PC published by Ubisoft in 2004. It is the first game in the Far Cry series, and apart from some similarities in gameplay it bears little resemblance to the sequel, as the plot, characters and setting are entirely different. You play Jack Carver, and ex-Special Forces agent who is stranded on an island in the Pacific after his boat was destroyed by the mercenaries who occupy the island.

Excerpt: Old games are uncool, old games have bad graphics and do not appeal to gamers today. This is not one of those games, with the recent release of a sequel you could say that this game has found a new wave of gamers that would not have played this title otherwise; none of which are disappointed.

Excerpt: Playing this game today, its hard to believe it is 5 years old. It's scalable quality and performance settings allowed me to play this when it was first released and when my hardware setup was upgraded, it was the first game I installed. At its lower settings it looks fine and provides a satisfying performance, move all the sliders to max and it looks fantastic. How many other games released in 2004 are still worthy of such praise?
Excerpt: While many FPS games do not age very well, Far Cry, due to its extremely high technical specification upon release in 2004, still looks great, and in my opinion, is a far better game than its weak and uninspired sequel released almost a year ago. Schlock maestro also adapted it into a film recently (which was utterly dreadful), and thus the only thing connected to the series that was in fact any good was the original game.
Conclusion: Great game realy involving, and easy enough for an old fogey like me. Well on the easy level. May become tiresome on the higher levels with the guard post respawning, but then it's fps so you need something to shoot at and you can usually drive round the guard posts. I like the range of weapons and great graphics. Better than doom, call od duty 4, and will last a lot longer.
Excerpt: Earlier most first person games were boring as you have to shoot your enemies one after another through a fixed way. But when back in 2004 the FARCRY game was released , it changed that all . In this game you have to play as a freelance mercenary who trapped in a island. Far Cry will let you use a wide range of weapons and freedom to explore a wide area. That means you can go where you want , you can do anything you wanted.
Excerpt: Far cry features incredible environments and graphics and it gives you a huge amount of freedom compared to other shooters as there are different routes you can take and you are left to choose how to go about your objectives. There is also an incredible choice of weapons and vehicles from early on so you really do select the way you want to handle a fight.
Excerpt: "Far Cry for the pc is one sweetly rendered game, this is off course if your pc's specs can handle the demands of the game.
