Re: Sunday Commentary - 9/12/04
I played and completed boths. Far cry first because I got it first then Doom3.
I enjoyed far cry and bits of it where great fun and looked great.
I loved Doom3 the graphics in any other game are going to seem dated now. Anything without realtime lighting will just look wrong, which is too of all previous games, I'm not saying that D3's lighting is perfect but it's such a leap forward and now I know what a modern gfx card CAN do any new games coming out are going to need good lighting over flashy effects ( like pretty water ).
I'm replaying Doom3 at the moment on nightmare mode and past the Hell level and loving it.
I intend to replay far cry afterwards just to get my moneys worth from it but I doubt I'll complete it again.
