This is simply a great game, there's nothing else to say, even if it was released (if I remember well) in 2004 it is still actual because it has great graphic, sound and playability. Whatch out for the difficulty level, because I played at medium setting and found the game very difficult but never frustrating (even if the final battle was veeeery hard).
Another charachteristic of the game is that it saves automatically at check points, many people could complain about it, but I think that this adds some good "tension" to the gameplay.
The game is very long and you won't finish it very soon.
Definitely two thumbs up!!
A must have in any hardcore gamer's collection. Amazingly, the original Far Cry is still going strong, despite being released in 2004. It's quite a basic game with a few guns, but there's tons to explore and destroy! Even in 2012, this game doesn't feel dated and it would certainly be in my top 10 PC games. Highly recommended if you like to kill, explore and destroy.
