"Solid FPS"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Definitely a top-of-the-line shooter, Farcry introduces new twists on the same FPS theme with solid gameplay, great graphics, and intense sound. In single player the storyline leads you well from beginning to end, starting you off without weapons, the game will guide you through a tutorial to introduce you to the mechanics of gameplay without taking you out of the story.

With an array of weaponry available, you can only carry up to three main weapon types, small arms, SMG or rifles, and heavy weps or sniper, secondary weapons include grenades, melee, and trap setting with claymores or branch-whips. You have usable vehicles as well which take some getting use to and provide more of a means to cover distances than to use as combat vehicles.

As the graphics get better, so do the tricks of visual perception, which can be hindered by foliage, fog, smoke, intense light or lack of light. Sound plays a part too as distance and direction will determine the noise level of enemies in relation to your position. The enemy AI, depending on the situation, will try flanking maneuvers, call for backup and seek cover when confronting you.

Added to this is online play, with the ability to create you OWN maps. YES there is a map editor and though I would wish for more options, it does offer the Farcry online community the chance to play your maps. For those of you without online play you can still create maps for splitscreen play. You will need patience, as making maps with a controller takes some getting use too… especially for those of us used to the CTRL-Z (undo) option LOL.

Farcry has great all-round gameplay, a must for your FPS library.


After escorting an inquisitive journalist to a remote tropical island, Jack Carver finds himself stranded in paradise, hunted by an unrelenting team of highly trained mercenaries. Incorporating state-of-the-art graphic technology and a host of innovative FPS gameplay conventions, Far Cry redefines the term "survival action." As Jack, you'll have to outwit hordes of cunning mercenaries through all manner of tactics. Make long-range assaults, set traps, commandeer vehicles - even develop new skills and abilities to outlast the island's evils and escape with your life.

  • Go it alone by setting traps, scouting ahead, sniping from afar, and commandeering all types of assault vehicles.
  • Finally, AI that's actually intelligent. Enemies react in real-time, take cover, call in reinforcements, and use advanced group-formation tactics to take you out.
  • Discover all-new locations including abandoned mines, aquatic labs, and a host of locations not found in the PC version.
  • Explosive Xbox LiveTM play allows you to engage in island warfare in more than eight unique modes of multiplayer combat.
  • Build your own multiplayer maps for use on Xbox Live or in split-screen mode. This first-of-its-kind editor for the Xbox console is ultra-powerful and specially designed for the Xbox Controller and allows gamers to switch from editing to playing on the fly.
