Jack Carver is cursing the day he ever came to this island. A week ago Valerie, a brash newspaper reporter, offered him an incredible sum of cash to sail her to this unspoiled paradise; but shortly after docking he was greeted by artillery fire from a mysterious militia group swarming over the island. With his boat destroyed, his money gone, and Valerie suddenly missing, Jack now finds himself facing an army of mercenaries amidst the wilds of the island with nothing but a gun and his wits to help him survive. And the further he pushes into the lush jungle canopy, the stranger things become...

About FarCry Operation Clearing with 2 comments by pvcf on Apr 19th, 2014

download video in full quality: www.reflex-studio.com/clearing/video/opcl_pripyat_russianfightscenes.avi

- soldiers talking russian
- added clearing music player (dynamic music without spoiling AI mood ^^)
- music is already nearly finsihed for that map, need only one additional actionmusic and some cool radiosongs for vehicleradio.
- show the first mission / and how the storytelling is done.

about the languages:
the game will be complete in english, but the soldiers protecting that area are russians, and talking russian. other NPC's will talk english.

i override all the different language versions out there, so nobody will hear the soldiers or jack talking itialian, spanish, french, german, czech, or polish like in original farcry.sorry i forgot to give me a flashlight so its sometimes very dark, but atleast it shows real gameplay: rambo style seems totally impossible on that map.

for the interactive non spoiling musicsystem please listen close from 00:30 to 01:30.
about the light bug: i think its a combination of wrong cutted terrain tails, the new moon which enlights at night the scene and the sunset which happens at the same time.

the black flickering vegetation seems a ATI shaderbug, i read that some stalker user have the SAME bug on stalker engine in original game ^^ this is funny (or not so) but i cannot fix this, we have to see if i can find a way to avoid that, it happens all the time if vegetation get more than 1 lightsource. i hope really its a shaderbug which is maybe seldom, we will see on betatest what other OS-users, and Nvidia users  report back.

ps.: reaching the hostage is not that easy in final game like in the video, thrust me :D

Ok, Guys arguing about how crysis sucks or not, CRYSIS UN-MODIFIED SUCKS! They put out the SDK editor with it so you can mod it to your standards, that's why Far Cry 2 sucks so much ***, It does not have SDK. Far Cry 1 and Crysis do, they kick *** because of that.

Man, you could read The Iliad while installing this if you have a lower end system. Great game though, but freakin hard!

bout that argument: Id go for both farcry and crysis for the games themselves. They are both fun games, I mean farcry would win in my book though cause crysis was made by a company under the umbrella of EA, and I would bomb EAs HQ if I wouldnt get caught, and nobody would get hurt, or any surrounding buildings get damaged...

Far Cry is definitely a great game. I can say that its a real masterpiece of Crytek which has everything - the best ever seen graphics by that time, interesting and challenging gameplay, and of course its story. You feel yourself like in a tropical paradise which hides something terrible inside. The game is quite long in compare with other FPS games, and it consists of 20 Single player levels and 8 multiplayer maps. Finally I just want to add that the only thing I dislike is a game difficulty. IF…
