Has anyone tried the multiplayer? Is it any good? I'm hosting a LAN soon, and we LAN dudes are considering Far Cry. Far Cry is such a great game! But, none of us have tried multiplayer.
Yes it is. I've played it at our LSG Clan Parties. It's awesome on the LAN. Getting around a ping of 10!
That sounds sweet!
But taking a look at some of the maps, they look pretty big - and we will only have 4 to 8 people max. How many were in the LAN you had, Starfire ? Did you use any mods or downloaded maps?
We ran our LAN 12 on 12 New Years Eve at our Clans gaming building. It was outstanding! We have a mix of members with different backrounds in gaming so FarCry has things for all types of players run&gun/tactical etc. I just don't like the skins much or the missing animation in the standing too prone action, but this will get fixed at some point! In a lan match it's not a problem, but online I can see it making a big stink. Game really is eye candy and it's cool that you can take off in the boat and sail until the islands gone....not useful, but for someone like me always trying to get out of a map or find new jumps/places no one knows etc. it's cool. We're always so bound by walls and map limits in these shooters that it's refreshing to have some map freedom. For a small lan I think Assault would work better than DM or TDM this way everyone is headed to the same places for defense or attack!:beer:
