Lol, oh man, that part was a tough one. Took me a long time to get anywhere. But I made it one time. I think I wore out my quick reload button on that one.

I really enjoyed Far Cry. The visuals were stunning, the AI was pretty good, the story was.....kinda lame.....and the voice acting was in need of improvement. But over all it was definately one of the best games of 2004 up there with HL2 and Doom3.

It seemed inevitable for an expansion.. I wonder why they didn't announce it sooner? Farcry was a good game with great graphics and a cheezy summer action movie feel... but oddly I think that's what adds to its charm... Looking forward to it!

I honestly thought this game was dead after the 1.3 patch. I thought CryTech announced that they were done with it?

The best thing is: CryTek is kind of my neighbour And for a German game, FarCry is really great. I love it

Yeah I remember just about all the team worked on Far Cry had left Crytek when they done with Fary Cry. Maybe Crytek created a new team to work on new patches and add on game for Far Cry.

Good call...did the Xbox version ever end up coming out? It seemed to have some promise. Maybe the same team that did that is doing the expansion?

I'll be looking forward to FarCry add on.
I just started playing it again, and it reminded me of why this should've been game of the year.
It's been just over a year since it was released and it's still the best looking game out there..........

The games strong point is the water but indoor environments are a bit crap. The draw distance though is amazing

Hint: run as fast as you can as far away from the monsters as you can - head for the beach and there just might be a gun you can use - don't stop until you get there...

Only problem with FarCry, was it got a bit repetative. but alot of FPS/games in general become like that.
