Far Cry

With a horrible day yesterday, weather wise, nothing much else to do but play games on the computer ;-) Recently finished CoD4 with Red Faction Guerrilla waiting to be played, don't want to install it just yet, as I'm waiting on W7, so, back to one of my most favorite games of all time, Far Cry.

It looks dated now, graphics wise but, still one of the best games ever. I love the freedom it allows you to wander all over the place and play it how you want to.

This review explains it far better than I ever could.

Far far better than Farcry 2.
I for one am tired of being disappointed in sequels.
I have just got myself a copy of Farcry from a cash generator shop for 99p,now thats a bargain for a great game.

Far cry is also one of the greats for me.
Far cry 2,one for the bottom of the pile.
"I for one am tired of being disappointed in sequels."
Come on,it's not all bad news. The Resi evil series,Doom 3, Call of duty,Medal of honor,Tomb raider now back on track. Roll on Bioshock 2.
A lot of the failings of sequels is due to the fact that a lot of the time the developers of the original game are not involved in the development of the next instalment.
Far cry was developed by Crytek whilst Far cry 2 was Ubisoft Montreal who obviously had totally different ideas.
Not always a bad thing. But in my opinion,if you have a new team you should at least have one person from the original team to bounce ideas off.

In reality it was Crysis that was the sequel to Far cry. And that was a pretty good effort.

Always resisted Far Cry, but now ordered it from Amazon at just £4 :)

Far Cry was my favourite FPS and I still play it from time to time. When it came out it was the first game to give my Radeon 9700pro a test (happy days)- it had a story, maybe a bit flaky towards then end but the variety of environments really shows what a poor effort FC2 is. Parts of Crysis were good but overall not in the same class as FC.
