Far Cry...Oooh where do i start.
First of all i have to say that the graphics on this beast of a game are absolutely stunning, and for the first time ever i can actually call a game beautiful. Everything in this game is given the biggest amount of detail, ranging from the paradise islands to the underground labs. The character models in the game are also very detailed, they do have a certain cartoon-ish feeling to them but thats all part of the fun. Plus i love seeing the bullet holes in the people you've just shot; not coz im sick its because i love to see exactly where i shot them, and how easy it was to take em down. So yeah im just sick lol!
Next up.....the gameplay.
*Cough* WOW! this game, for me at least, surpasses almost every game i have ever played in terms of gameplay; it plays like a dream. You start off by being thrown into an absoloutly huge (understatement) outdoor environment. At first i thought "well....its pretty big...i guess:(" But that was me sticking to the paths, i then took a 20 min detour up a mountain and got lost for 30 mins! I COULDENT BELIEVE IT
So yes the beautiful tropical island setting is huge beyond belief, and with so many different ways to aproach a mission the replay value is huge.
The weapons, a key factor in a FPS. They do not dissapoint. As usual you only start off with a pistol and have to aquire your own weapons, i tell ya, when you first pick up an assault rifle you feel IMMORTAL.
I could go on and on about this game but by now you are probably sick of me talking so il wrap up this review.
Far Cry = Stunning, intense, beautiful fun. Buy it, it will be the best £10 youve ever spent.
