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.
