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...
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 you want to make player use medikits, then you have to provide game saving at any time.
My estimate game rating is 10/10.
FarCry is completely the best game that I have ever Played, i played yet many other games than FarCry of course. But this game has a nice Sci Fi singleplayer.
And the multiplayer is a Bomb! The assault mode from FarCry is completely perfect, i have never played a soo good TeamWork gamemode ever before.
Other games provide mostly only DM or TDM, and some other modes.
But the mode of FarCry 1 is different from the other modes, I can't stop playing it, i play it now 4 years.
And I get so much inspiration, to start modding for that game, I made AddOns for the Multiplayer for give the game some, not really necessary, but nice items and improments.
For me this game has an 10! Its very easy to understand after a time, and you get really energy to play it every day. :-)
I'm still playing it and I can't just get enough of it. It's a great game. :)
One of best Fps games i ever play.
Awesome physics,graphic,jungle enviroment...
Enemy ai is better than most games today!
Story isn't so good but that's not important.
awsome with mods and not with mods awsome just awsome!
Great graphics, gameplay is awesome, you must play this game!
A nearly perfect tribute to both oldschool shooters and innovative ones, with excellently cheesy story and great atmosphere. And it's really long by today's standards, with beautiful, semi-open levels and variety of enemies and weapons.
It just can prove frustrating at some parts, especially near the end (10 fatmans and 30 mercs with rocket launchers, wtf!?), but it's definitely an unforgetable adventure.
Totally one of the best games ever made, a masterpiece of golden years of gaming :)
I'd absolutely say that this game, despite the difficulty, is the root of what we play today.
The graphics are great, even by some of today's standards. The voice acting is fine, and a bit funny. The best thing is probably the flexibility of its engine, where you can attach a minigun to a raft, and then you connect it to a boat.
Even if it does have good graphics, it doesn't mean that it lags. Certainly not. The game won't even lag on an Intel X3100 (if you lower the settings).
But, regarding the difficulty... well, if you complain, then git gud! It's not hard, you're just not good enough.
And the music seems well-composed, along with the dynamic music engine. It reminds me of the music from turkish TV series. It feels dramatic.
Now, the modding aspect is great. E.g. you can easily make a messup mod, with every soldier having a rubber duck as a hat (with the hat already included with Far Cry). And you could easily name your mods: Fat Cry, Half-Cry, Cry Far, Farthest Cry, Fart-Cry, Far Laugh and MANY more...
If I never met that friend of mine, I'd never know about the best game which I ever played.
After so many years, it is still "unbeatable", than it's "sequels"!..
