5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant FPS, 10 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Far Cry Instincts (Xbox) (Video Game)
I have recently played Half Life 2 on my PC. I was really impressed and didn't think there would ever be another FPS to even come close, but Far Cry Instincts has changed my mind. It isn't quite as good as Half Life 2 but it is pretty close.
The first thing to notice is that most of the graphics are top notch especially the outdoor scenery. The vehicles and enemies all look great as well.
And speaking of vehicles, there are so many of them. On some levels they are littered all over the place, ranging from hang gliders to gunboats and armoured vehicles. They are not all easy to drive at first but after a while you get used to them. The hang glider was the one I had most trouble with and found it quite hard to pick off enemies whilst flying. On the other hand if everything was easy in a game it would be boring.
Another good thing is that you can't just dash in and blast everything, sometimes you have to be stealthy and pick the enemies off one by one. On other occasions there were so many after you that I found it impossible to kill them all and just legged it to the next part of the game trying to avoid them.
Another thing I liked was that you are restricted to just 3 weapons at a time, 1 light ie.. handgun, 1 heavier ie... machine gun and 1 more specialised ie... sniper rifle. You also are allowed grenades.
I could go on for ages but lets just say that this is the best FPS that I have played on the XBOX so far. We will have to see what the soon to be released XBOX version of Half Life 2 is like, personally I can't wait.
