Far Cry, from the manufacturer's page. It's a *really* nice looking outdoor FPS game that was originally just meant to be a demo of the CryTek graphics engine.<br><br>It's been out a while now, but it requires a hefty vid card to run so I didn't bother with it until I got my 256mb GeForce. Picked it up for $20 at EB Games the other day, and I'm lovin' it so far. The AI is pretty good- the henchman work in tandem to close in on you and surround you if you don't act quickly. <br><br>You also have to do a fair amount of sneaking around because it's not as if you can just mow everyone down all at once. The enemies also detect you and start shooting if you come within a few dozen yards or so. The use of rocks, trees, etc. as cover proves to be invaluable...<br><br>Take a look at the screenshots on that page- it's a gorgeous game, especially when you consider that most FPS games these days are set in a pretty bleak environment- old burnt out WW2 villages, dungeons, darkened space stations, etc.<br><br>I am liking BIA as well so far- I'm *just* getting into the part where I command other soldiers, so I can't make a fair judgment yet. Right now I'm commanding someone to shoot the crap out of a scarecrow, so...<br><br>When I get stuck with Far Cry I'll go back... <br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>
Far Cry is awesome. I just finished it about 2 weeks ago and now am fully engulfed in Spinter Cell; Chaos Theory.<br><br>The graphics in Far Cry and great, the it has an interesting story line that keeps ya going. At one point you are left without weapons at all except for 10 rounds in your machine gun, and have to make your way through the jungle. Needless to say it took quite a few tries before I got it. The other thing I liked about it was the lack of a "QuickSave". It saved automatically at certain points in the game, but didn't let you save just anywhere. Actually made it more challanging I thought.<br><br>Spinter Cell is perfect as well. Playing the first two and then seeing this one is amazing. The graphics in this last one are so much better then the original, even though the original was good when it came out a few years ago. <br><br>I highly recommend both if you are a fan of the first person shooters and stealth/stragegy game.<br><br>----<br>Stupidity is like nuclear power. It can be used for good or evil.... and you don't want to get any on you.
