Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

Abandoned spacial bases, forgotten castles and desert islands are the perfect places to find obstacle and fight against an army of mercenaries and monsters to survive. The special former-agent (related commonly in the game for the enemies as “the man of the red shirt”) would have to know of this before offering a ride in his boat for the journalist who wanted to explore an innocent island. The result of this problem is “Far Cry”.

After a confused beggining video, the player finds himself lost in an island where it is attacked by innumerable mercenaries. Of his side they are only one girl that took him until the local and a mysterious benefactor speaks with him through one cell phone. Everything starts as a survival fight, and finishes for becoming in a private operation to finish with genetic experiences of a wild scientist.   

“Far Cry” is the first one of a new generation of FPS games that promise the biggest revolution in since “Half-Life”. While other games had more added trams elaborated and fantastic weapons, the first game of the Crytek accumulates not only everything of this, but also it presents a revolution in terms of graphs and artificial intelligence. Although it demand a well-working updated machine, the game worths this showing enormous external environments: realistic water, leves in the trees carefully represented is clearly, many mercenaries.   

During elapsing of the adventure the hero will have to direct different vehicles, to face giant monsters, to rescue and to protect other people, to play as elite shooting and much more. The story is forced, that could perfectly give a film of Steven Seagal, but the game itself, seduces players easily.

The worst part of the game in itself, is the environment, that enters remaining parts of a Japanese base, an expensive laboratory and forts spread for the irregular surfaces offer innumerable strategical chances to win the enemies. Mixed with an artificial intelligence elaborated and small tricks as to throw rocks to call attention, each phase of the game is full of challenges for the player.

Unfortunaly, the commercial version of the game alone offers writings (saves) automatic in determined points of the adventure. The Crytek promises to correct this with an update that will allow the player to record the game at any time, removing one of the most frustrating barriers of the game: to see its progress marked with little energy or close to a group of enemies.

Although to focus itself in the option of campaign for a player, the game offers some basic options of multiplayer: the traditional Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. They are well elaborated, but they are far from being the prominence of the game. Much more interesting are the tools for creation of a new content, that can in the future result in MODs of success.
