Same with Fraser Island. Some parts Dense Rainforest, Some light Forest and Lakes that have water so clear that you can see the bottom even when it's 20m deep.

When I first got the game, I just had my Ti4400. My roommate let me play his copy and I believe those options were available to me.

After I got my 6800 and my own copy of FarCry I finally noticed them and played around and wow...those render options are all so awesome.

I have been playing in cartoon mode (all played out with paradise and cold) and it's kinda kewl

I might have to consider buying XIII based on this...

not true cel-shaded but it looks neat, and my frame rate is higher as well...

This is a bit off-topic but I find the normal mapping amazing. The mercenaries look very good with normal mapping. It's no wonder Unreal 3 uses normal maps so extensively.
I can't choose rendering modes so I'm stuck with default.

Might want to look into Halo as well. A cell-shaded mod came out for the sp game.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that, unless you're talking strictly graphics. The graphics are insane, but the gameplay/fun factor...meh.

That being said: I love cel-shaded games.
