Far Cry 1 is a first person shooter video game developed by Crytek Studios and published by Muhammad Niaz on March 23, 2004, for Microsoft Windows. Far Cry sold 730,000 units within four months of release. It received positive reviews upon release. The original game has since spawned a series of sequels and spin off games and a movie. Far Cry isn’t just a stunning technical accomplishment. It’s quite possibly the best single player first person shooter experience for the PC since Half Life.
FarCry game’s story follows a former U.S. Army Special Forces operative Jack Carver, who is stranded on a mysterious archipelago. He is searching for a female journalist he was escorting after she went missing when their boat was destroyed by mercenaries. The game includes thematic elements relating to the dangers of weapon zing genetic engineering and the genocide of local islanders as can be seen by the deformed creatures created by a mad scientist named Krieger.
Without a doubt, Far Cry has the most advanced graphics seen in any PC game to date. Everything in this game looks amazing, and the level of verisimilitude is unprecedented. Jungles actually feature dense foliage that consists of trees, plants, and tall grasses, and this foliage is filled with birds and insects. Beaches have blinding-white sand, and the surf slowly laps ashore. The character models are some of the best we’ve ever seen in such a game, and they’re richly detailed and animated. The game also incorporates real time lighting and shading effects to a degree rarely seen before, so when you walk in the jungle, you actually see the shadows of overhead leaves flickering on your rifle. In some of the larger indoor levels, the shadows of oncoming opponents are projected in larger than life form onto walls. Intense heat blur from lava streams distort the atmosphere. And a near miss from an enemy rocket will black out your vision as if you got the wind knocked out of you. You can’t help but be pulled in by the sheer immersiveness of the game.
Far Cry is a stunning game in so many ways. It certainly raises the bar for graphics to new heights. And yet, it’s not just a technology demonstration. In Far Cry, the graphics are just one of the ingredients that submerge you into the experience. The developers exhibit a growing sense of maturity throughout the game. It’s as if they themselves were learning how to use the graphics engine in conjunction with the AI, sound, and level design to create a superior gameplay experience one that starts out impressively and, for the most part, just keeps getting better. The result is an awesome thing to behold, and it’s an even better thing to experience.
