I'm a pretty huge fan of the Crysis trilogy-played all three over the past year or two on Xbox 360, and they look and play great, and tell a fun story (other than the boss of the first game is too hard).
Was expecting Far Cry 1 (Windows) to be worse, but not THIS much worse.
The difficulty is ludicrous, even on "easy", and there's no way in hell I'd be playing this without a god/invincibility mode.
It's got escort missions (hurray?).
It's got occasionally broken scripting (which would suck 20x more if I weren't invincible).
It's just boring and frustrating as hell, even when you're invincible.
I can't believe this got good reviews. Granted game design and FPS design has come a long way since 2004, but even in 2004 we'd had Deus Ex and System Shock 2, and I'm sure other good games besides (not to mention Resident Evil that's at least tangentially related to an FPS).
Ugh. I can't really put my abhorrence of this into works properly.
At least it's another game out of the backlog when I finish (hopefully tonight).
