A tropical paradise seethes with hidden evil in Far Cry, a cunningly detailed action shooter that pushes the boundaries of combat to shocking new levels.
Freelance mariner Jack Carver is cursing the day he ever came to this island. A week ago, a brash female reporter named Valerie had offered him an incredible sum of cash to take her to this unspoiled paradise. Shortly after docking, however, Jack's boat was greeted by artillery fire from a mysterious militia group swarming about the island.
With his boat destroyed, his money gone and the gorgeous Valerie suddenly missing, Jack now finds himself facing an army of mercenaries amid the wilds of the island, with nothing but a gun and his wits to survive by. But the further he pushes into the lush jungle canopy, the stranger things become.
Jack encounters an insider within the militia group who reveals the horrific details of the mercenaries' true intentions. He presents Jack with an unsettling choice: battle the deadliest mercenaries or condemn the human race to a maniac's insidious agenda.

Excellent game to play got to be sneaky though musn't be loud. Though its funny how it's labelled as one of the Nvidia games "The way it's meant to be played" however Nvidia cards cannot perform Anti-Aliasing and HDR Lighting and ATi cards can o.0

 Great game!

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!!

 still a great game

This just just become my second favourite FPS of all time (Deus Ex my first!!). Beautiful to look at. Massive (and I mean massive) amount to do. I bought this for very little cash and it's been total value for money. The sense of freedom you get running around the islands is a beautiful experience. You almost feel like sitting on top of one of the mountains with a box of sandwiches and just watch the water lapping up against the beach for a couple of hours whilst getting a tan.. If you like FPS games, you will, without question be well in to this one.. Shame Far Cry 2 is taking soooo long to come out
