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.
Only last summer i done it without cheats on "easy" difficulty xD
OK, this game is awesome in graphics, stupid in story, stupid in vehicles collisions, awesome in sniping and camping.
But like in Crysis only first half of this game is interesting - near to end this game became hell in stupidness... Like level where are some monsters and you've only M-4 with 10 bullets - i don't know how to survive on maximum difficulty with this thing if only first monster you HAVE to kill takes 8 bullets before dies XD
But... this game has some awesome mods without story, with new awesome levels and with some enemy people - nice to camp and...
