Just ordered it for a tenner from Play.com. It's always looked good, hope my laptop can run it ok.

There are lots of really good community made single player maps for this game. So theres lots to do after you finish the game. Currently the multiplayer is a bit pants but there are loads of mod teams who love the engine so expect some really good mods as well. Any shooter fan who has not got this game, get it cause it rocks.

Yes, Far Cry is a really good game, and is still one of the best FPS's I've played. It is certainly up there with Half Life 2 and Doom 3,

I must resist the urge to buy this game, I have too many other games to play through first :0|

The last few chapters started to grate on me, until I realised the way to do it instead of blindly attacking from straight-on-charge style I usually do.

Superb game.
Made me upgrade my graphics card to the 9800pro and I'm glad I did.

far cry is a good game. But its ruined at the end with unfair numbers of mutants with high accuracy and rocket launchers. Oh and to make matters worse the final boss has a large number of elite soldiers just waiting for you assuming you survive long enough.

Great game, but before you do anything - download the patch.

Worth a tenner? Hell yes.

Rubbish. It was silky smooth on my 6800gt Golden sample, 1gb and athlon 64 3500.

Well, with the patch anyhoo :D

It runs Half Life 2 on medium/low settings, and CS on medium/high settings, and I upgraded my drivers for that. And it's a laptop so I can't really do anything about the components. Might start building myself a decent gaming PC though.

I have a similar system - I ran it on Medium.

Just a little note - the speed of your processor is fine, but you could really do with an extra 512 of RAM. It'll effectively double the speed of your PC and will do wonders to your performance of Far Cry. The graphics will never look their best unless you have one of the latest cards which very few of us, me included, do. But even with your card, and 1 Gig of RAM, it'll at least run smoothly on Medium - and that's not too shabby. Also - make sure you've updated your drivers fron www.nvidia.com!
