Whatever happened to the 64bit version of the original FarCry? Wasn't it supposed to be out by now?

Unfortunately it looks like they aren't the only ones that lag on promises... HL2 was delayed how long? Hell HL1 was delayed how long? So was Unreal, Doom3, etc..

I feel the same. A great overall package that was more satisfying than either HL2 or Doom 3. The ending needed some work, but everything else was dynamite.

The ultimate summer surprise. Count me in on the expansion.

I am thinking they did that to make it tougher to take out rocket boys. It isn't a flaw in the A.I.

I have used the editor extensively and you can adjust many aspects of the A.I. for any individual enemy, including the distances at which they can hear and see you. They just jacked the sensitivity way up for key enemies.

It can seem a bit excessive, in some cases, but mostly I thought it was well balanced.

Anyway, GIVE ME AN EXPANSION!!!

I was kinda hoping for FarCry2 rather than an expansion. Doesn't 18 months sound like a long time between initial release and an expansion?

You're right, it did, but the story was dumb.

Yes I agree the voice acting was dumb. I would rather the enemies say nothing at all

voice acting was GREAT, it wasn't poor quality and it was much more memorable than other games of late.

"I'm going to shoot you in the face" that's what makes this game so fun

"Got a present for ya", classic lines, great cheesy action!

Story was just stock standard, it wasn't that dumb but it wasn't "omg clever"
