"The best FPS...ever!!!"
5 stars"

I've played most of the best shooters such as FEAR, Halo, COD, Half Life 2, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Medal of Honor ( including the new releases and expansion packs relating to each mentioned game) but I must say where single player is concerned, Far Cry beats them all hands down. I recently played (through to completion) this game and I swear if I didn't know any better–I would have believed was released in late 2007. That's how good Far Cry is. It has it all; gorgeous graphics (very high graphics in Far Cry is better than medium for Crysis), frustratingly clever AI and it took me about 20 hours to clock the game (on normal). Unlike other shooters, you need to strategise your actions intelligently and use cover. Terminator-style “straight up the gun” charges will only result in many, many restarts at the last checkpoint. I fully recommend this game. And I certainly hope Far Cry 2 and come close to matching its predecessor.

"Best Single Player FPS Ever!!"
5 stars"

This is one of those rare games that creeps up when no one is watching and absolutely blitz's the big boys. Half life 2 and Doom 3 are definatey not a patch on this, with similar quality graphics and physics engines the thing that distinguishes Far cry is simply the plot , the AI and just the general gripping gameplay and story line. In my opinion this one is rigth up there in my top 3 next to BF1942 (and vietnam) and Warcraft III. If you thought half life was good … this is the same sort of thing but better.

"above average"
3 stars"

I was let down a bit by this game, i was expecting something that was at the least evolutionary rather than revolutionary but i dont think i got either.

Graphically the game is brilliant even on lower end systems the scaled down effects are still nice. The storyline, well its pretty much non existent, i guess i shouldnt expect one though this is just a shooter at heart. I just like to feel compelled to blow up installation X or rescue character Z. The gameplay is “shoot everything in sight,” although you can sneak around a bit drive vehicles and hang glide (not as cool as i hoped). The multiplayer is pretty much rubbish, although i did find a fan made coop map that was great – look forward to more of those in the future.

If you dont expect or want anything more than a shooter with great graphics this is for you. Hopefully this games huge mod community will make this game a little more worthwhile for me.

P.S. takes about 5Gb of Hard disk real estate – ouch.

"What a view"
4 stars"

wow, even tho my video card isn't that great I can still sit back and appreciate the detail of the surroundings in this game and the combination of detail and sound makes you feel if your right there(Just wish I had 5.1)

What can I say about the singleplayer than it was great, would have been one of the best story lines i've played so far.

The enemy isn't your every day guy, very smart compare to other games but I still mow them down.

Multiplayer doesn't have a big community out there right now but I would say it needs some work to make multiplayer more appealing to gamers eg. more weapons, vehicles and maps could be smaller.

"Game and a half"
4 stars"

(I havent played the whole game, just a demo.) The graphics like everyone says are awesome. The AI is also increadable they will do anything to try and take you out.

I first tried to rush in guns blazing trying to shoot everything that got in my way. I soon found out the hard way that this was not the right idea like some other games. A helping hint: try to sneak up and take out ur enimies one by one from the flanks and u will start to enjoy the game a lot more and appreciate the little details in the game.

I am looking forward to getting the full game. Im calling it a game to fill in time before Half-Life 2 arrives.
