We all love our summer hols, but this is far from your average vacation. Once youíre washed up on a beautiful tropical island by a violent storm thereíll be no time for lounging around and relaxing until someone rescues you. Not soon after your unplanned arrival you find yourself tangled in thick, lush scenery that conceals dark and disturbing conspiracies. Defending the islandís secrets are hundreds of mercenaries, armed to the teeth. Only now do you realise youíll have to fight for your very life.

Leading you around the amazing sights of the fantastically designed islands is a story line, which to be honest lacks some originality but is none the less enthusiastic about where itíll take you. Overall this makes it an enjoyable and epic experience.

Enemies patrolling the island constantly vary their tactics to keep you on your toes and to ensure you wonít fall into another generic FPS game. Far Cry shows other games how AI should really respond to a threat upon their lives. The mercenaries will now try to flank you, scare you and even ambush you. This often makes staying ahead of the game quite a challenge, but with a neat kit of weapons and tools at your disposal you can overcome most opponents without much hassle.

At first you have nothing but your blood stained fists to sustain your life on the island, but as you proceed youíre given numerous opportunities to wield knives, carefully hold and target an enemy with a sniper rifle and simply go in heavy-handed with a rocket launcher.

Without a doubt the graphics have to be commended as some of the best seen on the PC. This creates many scenes fit for reality. Among the level designs you can expect to experience many lush tropical forests, the walls of deep underground caverns and the cold, steel panels of a blood-stained research facility situated on the side of a mountain.

Accompanying these great picturesque landscapes is a great composition of rich sounds directly from the heart of a real-life tropical island. Matching the graphicís portrayal of shots, whether they are in water or on dry land, the audio never fails to be less than explosive.

Thereís a lot of variety and opportunities contained within this game, letting the player open a door to a whole new world of outstanding experience. For example, you can finally fulfil your dream of paragliding off one of the tallest mountains, just as long as you can remember this is far from an ideal dream.

The game is huge, with some 20 non-linear missions covering numerous, unique locations. Luckily the game doesnít purely focus on making wonderfully crafted scenes and excellent rendition of music; instead it manages to capture one final important element of any top selling game, great game play.

Far Cry almost guarantees you many enjoyable hours of playing time, with the occasional struggle against not only advanced enemies, but also a couple of puzzles too, not overly complicated, but enough to keep Far Cry above other repetitive FPS.

Highly recommended.
