    I wouldn't be seen dead with this thing in a plague pit

    Firstly, i'd like to ask anyone who can answer why people use Farcry as a benchmark to test their graphics cards? I know that with my 7800 GTX things are supposed to run smoothly, but honestly even with all the graphi... Read Full Review

    One of my Favorites

    This is a great game. The environment is very nice. The weapons are cool, I just wish I could carry more. The FN 90 was may favorite. It was worth cheating just to ensure I had enough ammo for the gun. The game play is... Read Full Review

    A beautiful lush game full of life. Makes for great stealth play and finally a FPS where you make your own paths.

    This has to be one of the most goregous games out there. You are Jack Carver, a man that recently got out of a dirty buisness and is now doing tours around a cahin of islands. But when a persuasive girl rents his water s... Read Full Review

    The most overrated FPS of all time. 9.2 score is insulting to me...

    It could have been an awesome game, but it is packed with annoying flaws like absurd checkpoint system, overpowered AI in enemies, snipers everywhere, absolutely unnecessary and lame stealth manager, also guys launching ... Read Full Review

    Breath of fresh air. Virtually, on a breath-taking island, and from the traditional FPS way of life.

    Far Cry is without a doupt, one of the most graphically advanced game today. The environment, water, character details simply blew me away. The lighting effects are extremely realistic, much like Doom 3's. The gamepla... Read Full Review
