Well... After tweaking the game ALL day yesterday (...almost literally) I got the game to play mostly smooth and still have that shiny PS20 look. Levels like Bunker and Carrier really challenge my computer but only certain rooms really slow down to an unplayable rate... Im using the v1.1 patch (and to tell you the truth, it didn't do anything for me... v1.0 played the same) I was really hoping to be able to play with everything on High ... or at least Med-High in 1280x960 but Im stuck in 1024x768 hehe. The game itself is very fun when it's playable... I just got to the first night level (the one right after the bunker level) and I must say this game is very well done... Now if it would just play smoother :) That eye candy doesn't like my computer lol! So what do you guys think of FC? And how is it runnin for ya'll?

Damn good game, I have finished it in the past week. If bunker and carrier lag for you you better pray when you reach volcano and the 10 boards before that. I'm running 1024x768 default graphics it doesn't matter to me I still see small defects in the game but thats just my eye.

One of the best FPS's out right now. It is hard to play other ones after all the immersive environments...

The physics! The sounds! The gameplay! The enemies! FarCry's the best game what's been released on this year.
