A tropical paradise seethes with hidden evil in Far Cry, a cunningly detailed action shooter that pushed 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 amidst the wilds of the island, with nothing but a gun and his wits to survive. 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.

If it weren't for the last few levels (which can be unfair with its checkpoint and enemy placements) this game would be a perfect 10/10.
This game just like Half Life is a thinking man's shooter for the most part. Rushing into things would get you killed. Mostly in the open area levels that is, the tight corridor levels are meant to invoke that Doom esque macho shooters but even then, precautions on each step is neccesary or you are gonna go toast.
Best advice is to scan the areas for enemies before barging in and make sure to take cover behind stuff like trees and rocks. Also, head shots get things done faster until or unless it is those guards in the end which comes with helmets.
The story was wack, not gonna lie, but its level design and graphics were a marvel to behold.

Good old days. Had nice graphics for it's time. And the story was cool. Well, the last few levels were a bit hard but the game was great ❤️

The original Far Cry made a small revolution in FPS genre in 2004, thanks to its stunning graphics and physics and dynamic gameplay in gorgeous tropical decorations. Still one of my favourite games.

Far Cry had some pretty good graphics and visuals that in its own age was a benchmark. good action fights and satisfying story made it a hell of a game.
