Far Cry has got to be one of the most beutiful games I have ever played besides RE4, Far cry has also got some stellar gameplay, and realistic gameplay
, like not being able to shoot your guns while swimming. The story isn't that bad either, you play a man named Jack Carver, you came with a scientist named Valerie, you are in the pacific islands when your boat gets blown up by mecenaries and Valerie is taken away, after she left on a jetski. You wake up in a sewege vat left for dead, you get in touch with a scientist and the game goes from there
you get many weapons ranging from Desert Eagles, to rocket launchers. You also get binoculars wich detect your enemies and mark them on your mini-map along with their awareness level, ranging from idle: green, to aware: orange, to alert: red.
But it's not like Metel Gear Solid where your enemies have a field of vision. Of course they can only see so far, but they can see very, VERY far and not only that, but the snipers, basically if you can see them, they can see you, and they won't hesitate to fire a rocket at you.
Also the game comes with a map editor, sure it's a little complex, but it's worth it to get rid of enemies in levels and put vehicles and weapons in levels. You can also have fun with the editor's nicer features, like making a chain of explosives in a level to basically kill every enemy with one shot
I would say that far cry is probably the best PC game ever made besides Half-Life. I give it 10 out of 5! Great work Crytek!!
