Back in the day, Far Cry was something special and still stands well today. The game deviates from a more linear type of single player FPS offering you multiple pathways to progress in completing your objectives. The whole tropical atmosphere is breathtaking with fantastic scenery and effects. The game’s AI is strong but at the same time is a little bit too intelligent because if they hear even the slightest noise from you they go on full alert straight away, which to me seems a bit over the top. The game’s sound effects, music and voice acting are also great, adding to the fantastic presentation. There are also different vehicles to drive such as boats, cars and gliders to add more variety to the experience. Far Cry’s weapon system is also good in that you can only carry a certain number of guns at a time, forcing you to drop old weapons and make important tactical decisions as you progress. It is all these little aspects that come together that make Far Cry such a great game. Although dated and overshadowed by newer Far Cry titles and of course the Crysis franchise, the original Far Cry still has much to offer if you haven’t played it already.

This game is simply revolutionary. The wide maps and amazing graphics make Far Cry very immersive and involving. The gunplay feels nice and responsive and the varied missions adds to the different styles of gameplay. The voice acting is reasonably well done and it does have an overall negative impact as there is not much of it in the game. If you enjoy pretty much any first person shooter you should play this!

I can't believe this game is already so old. By the time it was released it delivered amazing graphic and gameplay. There is also unofficial coop mod on the internet, that makes this game perfect. This game is like Crysis 0, since it runs on the first Cry engine.
New direction for first person shootersivangroznyi1 | Aug. 26, 2013 | See all ivangroznyi1's reviews »
Far Cry was the game which made me say "wow, it cannot look this good!". But it did... And although after 9 years the game looks less breathtaking than before, it is still a very good shooter. I think it opened some new direction for FPS games - it created a pretty open island to play on, quite complex and demanding gunfights and opponents who were more than just plainly suicidal robots. Far Cry 2 and 3 followed this tradition and although they play and look better than the original game which started the series, I think the first Far Cry still deserves its share of attention. If you haven't played it yet, try it - it's not expensive now, and it didn't become any less fun than it originally was.
