Anybody else tried it? I just loaded it up and have gotten to the old Japanese carrier. It's really a beautiful game, and the AI is much more intelligent as they claimed - although it's not perfect. The animations are very good as well.
No! I'm Spamacus!

If they could have made the AI as good as in Operation Flashpoint, this game would have been quite impressive. However, I feel that this game really should have had more outdoor levels to really show of the engine. Some realism would have been nice as well...
yeah, FARCRY is beautiful but it could have used some realism and more outdoor maps. I thought it would be fairly realistic but when i started shooting aliens i pretty much quit with the SP.
i want it so i can shoot aliens. I played demo and thought it was excellent
As soon as I get my dx9 vid card I will buy it

:) Yeah,I thought it was fun too,till I ran into those buggers. I hate aliens!
Far Cry is the BEST FPS up-to-date. I played through the whole SP campaign, and although the plot isn´t very original, its extremely fun to play.
AT the beginning your mostly fighting outside. Then during the middle, you spend alot of time indoors, and towards the end, your back outside. I whole you have a good balance of about 70% outdoor levels, and 30% indoor.
Far Cry also has a decent playi-time of about 20 hours which isnt very common nowadays in the FPS genre. Its also a bit more realistic then most other FPS, since you main character dosnt take alot of hits before dying.
The AI also sets new standards. Although it dosn´t always work perfect and is sometimes buggy the AI reacts completely indipendant of any triggers (there are exeptions of course). They try to surround you and provide each other covering fire while they assault on your position. Thats why fire-fights are never the same. Even if you replay the same scene twice, the AI wil always react depending on your actions. Often you dont notice this while playing, since the Genemonsters dont have much of a team AI. But if you test it you will see how versatile the AI is.
And besides that MP offers a good basis for future Mod support. There is a Mapeditor out already, and the SDK is close to release.
At least here in Germany, Far Cry is the highest rated FPS in all major PC-Gaming Magazines...
