Ive played the demo on my old crappy system last feb, but now I am wondering if the game is actually worth purchasing for. I know some of you are thinkng ( go buy it and try it) but I just wanted your opinions on the game as retail. What you like and dont like about it compared to the demo. I just need that extra push to get me to buy it. Comments?

It depends on what you like. Far Cry is more of a sci fi shooter with modern day weaponry. The story is like Jurassic Park and Doom. You're stranded on an island with a woman who is doing research on these experiments on living creatures. At first you're killing mercs but then you're in factories and jungles killing these mutations. The rag doll physics are really nice. Say you kill a merc and he was near a wall he will slide down the wall as he dies. There are no futuristic weapons like ray guns or plasma rifles, all M4a1s, Desert Eagles etc. You can use vehicles but not like in the Battlefield series. You can drive a couple of jeeps here and there, some gliders, various boats but no choppers or planes. I haven't tried the MP yet so maybe someone who has would care to comment on that.

I would say yes, for $50, or $40 in some places, this game is worth the money. The graphics are great, the gameplay is great. The only downside is how demanding the game is to run, but, thats just the way it goes as games get better and better. You need a good system to run this game for sure, for example, I currently run a 1.3 ghz processor, with 512 ddr ram, and a 128mb video card, and I get video lag in many places. So as result I need to turn the graphics down considerably. As far as multiplayer goes, its not that good, YET, it will get better, most the issues come from lag, b/c most of the servers running are just being hosted by guys on their home computers, but the game is new, and the multiplayer will improve quickly Im sure. Anyway, if you have a system equal to or better then mine, I'd say run out and grab it. It'll be worth your time, Im having a great time playing the single player campaigns while I await the MP to improve.:deal:

I just bought it yesterday.. and other than me getting slaughtered left and right it was a blast. Havent quite figured out the settings though. Think I can take them higher and make the game look even better than it does. Hope so anyway.

I just played the demo, and when my dad saw it, he immediatley went and ordered it from Amazon.com. :naughty: Before I knew much about Far Cry, I wasn't too impressed with the advertisements or screenshots (I usually go for real good-looking fps/tps games, this one looked kinda cartoonish :uhm: ). After I played it, everything changed: this game is probably the best looking game since the Splinter Cell series. The graphics are cutting-edge, the models ALMOST rival those of Doom 3, the physics are incredibly real (ragdoll ;) ) and the sound just drew me right in :dance:

This is definitely a game worth buying for anyone who hasn't already done so. :D

It is VERRY COOL, the MP is fun 2. The AI's are Smart. When you shoot 1 a few of them will run to their fallen commrad and serch for you comming at you from multiple angles...

VERRY HARD in some places.

Well worth the $90 AU...
