I’ve always heard good things about the Far Cry series. Without a decent gaming rig, I just never got around to playing them. A Steam sale a couple of months ago convinced me to pick up Far Cry and Far Cry 2, and after playing through a couple of adventure games I decided a change of pace was in order.

At the time Far Cry released it was considered by many to be the best first person shooter in existence. A combination of responsive AI, open-ended missions, and incredible graphics put it a head and shoulders above the competition. Of course, this was back in 2004. A lot’s changed since then.
