    It does remind me of half life but it deffinatly feels less linear and has a lot more freedom to it. It also feels a lot more atmospheric but thats primarily down to the much better graphics and sound i guess.

    I dont think it's as good as half life, tbh. The enemy AI is excellent outside, but as soon as you are inside it is quite weak IMHO. Lots of crowding round doors, running straight through doors knowing you are waiting on the other side, getting stuck next to pillars, tha sort of thing.

    The story is also far less involving. Half Life seemed to rack up the intensity and the "what's going to happen next" plot that seems sorely missing in Far Cry. The level design is also quite samey IMHO.

    I dunno. I guess I am about halfway through right now, and my feelings have changed a little. It's good, but I think it is being a little over-rated. It's just not as much funas, say, GTA3 or as intense as Call Of Duty.

    Having said that, I am not playing on a 9800 Pro, which might account for a small ammount of the impression peopel are getting.

    I dunno, The gfx engine is VERY impressive, but other than that, I dont think it's all that good. The sounds are not THAT good. Call of Duty has far, far better effects and music.

    its not necessarily about fun is it, i mean i wouldnt compare it to GTA3 for a second cus its a completly different type of game..

    You are playing it on a laptop are you not, that surely will decrease the visual impact of it. And as for intensity, well it depends as i have said before what mode you are playing it on and what floats your boat. I mean some people might find being shot by doddery old nazi's but i prefer something a bit more intense... i.e. troops being dropped from a helicopter and coming at you with P90s as well as snipers trying to pick you off from long range... oh and did i mention the rocket launcher weilding mutated mercenaries?

    Playing it on a 9800XT, 3200+ CPU, gig of PC3200.

    And... It’s ok.

    Nothing amazing, but good enough to make you want to get to the next level. Looks nice, and the various effects, like the water, or the view through the night-vision goggles, are impressive.

    Just hasn't got anything else though. I'm on the 9th or 10th level now, and I looked back over a list of the levels I'd completed, and apart from the first 2, I couldn't remember what I'd done in any of them. Walk through some jungle, shooting the odd bloke, and then completing some objective, like finding a key card, for the most part. Nothing stands out.

    The trigens are dodgy rip-offs of Hunters, from the Resident Evil series, although they don't look as good, and the game doesn’t do anywhere near as good a job of making you jump, when you know they are around.

    The way you can approach an objective is quite open, both in the route you take, and the style. You can lie on-top of a hill, overlooking a camp, for instance, use your binoculars to tag every enemy, then using night-vision and the sniper rifle, pick them off one by one.

    Or, you can go steaming in with the MP5, hide behind a rock, and spray everyone who comes near.

    It looks good, sounds good, but too much of the game is average and has been done before, and better, in other games, to make it a classic, or 'the best FPS ever'.

    It’s worth a look if you've got the system to play it, and the delays to Half Life II have left you in need of a flashy looking FPS, but it’s nothing to shout from the rooftops about.

    Can't see me playing it much, once completed.

    7/10 from me.

    ^^^ Totally agree with that. Some sections are excellent - the outdoor ones are FAR better than the indoor ones, but then I thought that about CoD as well. Indoor sections just get dull/repetitive very easily IMHO. Much prefer crawling around in the undergrowth and not knowing who is shooting me far more enjoyable.

    The handglider is cool though...

    Bought this the other day and bought a dvd-rw to install it as I got the dvd version and my dvd player was bust and the damn thing tells me that I have cd/dvd emulation software installed and should deinstall it before the game will work. Anyone got any ideas? I have no internet at home at the moment. PC spec is in sig and dvdrw is a philips 416k
