How could Ubisoft possibly screw up Far Cry? It was a great game on the PC, but is complete trash on the Wii. The graphics look like an N64 game, the enemy AI is as smart as tree, and the levels are a complete bore to go through. The game is so easy, that if you actually die, once, I will give you $10. The AI can't even shoot you. They shoot 50 times, and you are lucky if you get hit once. The controls work fine, but the rest of the game is complete and utter trash, so it just isn't any fun to play. They have ruined Far Cry. I didn't even know that was possible.

There is still a lot of work to be done on first person shooters (FPS) for the Wii. I have played Red Steel, Call of Duty 3, and now this game... After playing Red Steel (horrible game) i rented COD3 (After playing COD3 on XB360, i couldnt get into it for the Wii). Now i have rented Far Cry and its really not a bad game, its much better than red steel, the controls in this game are NOT bad, and there is minimal lag, much less than red steel! Far Cry is my favorite FPS for the Wii so far... But there is a lot of work to be done on games, as expected for a new console... Try this game out, I think its worth it!

To start off far cry vengeance is a great game it has all the features of a great shooter plus more. the storyline is great and has many twists and turns but will be a little bit confusing if you havnt played the xbox version Controls: The controls in this game are WAY better than red steel mainly cause you can adjust the sensitivity in the game. the only problem i had with it was that when you try to reful your health using a shake of the nunchuk the game gets confused with the jump motion so while taking cover you find yourself jumping out of cover and gettin killed rather than regaining health. Equipment: the guns in this game are amazing and are all familier to most fans of the series. they have about 15 different guns in all including a blow gun!! you can also duel weild certain guns like in halo 2. the vehicles in this game are great too and can be steered with one hand and shot out of with the other and having the ability to jump from the front seat to the turret is a real treat. the game also includes grenades, mines, c4 bombs, rockets, mines, and the best thing ever molitof cocktailes!! AI: the enemys are very smart and use cover and even switch weapons and have great aim they also comunicate with eachother. Originality: the game is very original in two ways one way is that you can either be stealthy or go crazy its your choice. way number 2 is your feral abilities wich u gain wen u get head shots and knife kill enemys and when yor bar is full you can get super speed, super jump, feral vision wich allows you 2 track enemy sccents and feral claw with this you claw enemys and they go flying away. you can also use your feral bar to regain your health. Graphics: the graphics are poor and better on the original xbox but once you start to play with the smooth controls you forget the graphics and have a real fun time. Multiplayer: only 2 people at once but has great levels and modes has no online multiplayer until 2007 wich was a key part of farcry games.
