Ok who gets the money in the UT2004 review sweep?

30-03-2004, 10:19:28

i nearly finished it too :D

but seriously, far cry is amazing

brilliant AI

lovely big levels where you can do things stealthily or all guns blazing, your call

it is definitely game of the year potential

30-03-2004, 10:23:46
If it's nearly finished couldn't you just finish the last bit?

What are the minimum specs (knowing full well they'll be beyond my PC).

30-03-2004, 10:30:15
well the main reason i might not finish the ut2004 review will be that i won't have played enough to see all the important bits - hardly fair to review it on that basis

i expect far cry would chug on anything below a 2ghz processor and a fairly recent graphics card

on my p4 3ghz and radeon 9600 it runs like a dream

the water effects are a sight to behold, and the jungle foliage is just so sweetly done, plus the parrot noises and monkey screeches and stuff really give it the right atmosphere

the AI is brilliant, guards working as teams and taking cover and stuff, so well done

30-03-2004, 10:33:58
Fair enough.

I've only got a 1.2GHz Athlon. Might have to upgrade at some point. :cry:

30-03-2004, 11:09:28
nah, you don't play games any more, no point

30-03-2004, 11:14:26
I do use it a lot though and it does struggle now just with a few internet applications, firewall and virus scanner. Plus I'm very low on hard drive space.

Probably what I need is a load more RAM, a clean up and a rebuild. Have been thinking about getting a new machine for a while though.

played the demo last month, very cool. Now I've got another demo that arrived yesterday...

30-03-2004, 20:41:22
Any chance of some screenshots KG?

30-03-2004, 21:09:09
how about doing a google search? you lazy ass.

30-03-2004, 21:12:36
self righteous prick!

30-03-2004, 21:16:56
Yeah! Fuckin' cock suckin' ho!

Actually I did Google for some and it does look most impressive. Will there be a Mac version? Will there fuck.

This game is truly gorgeous. I'd write a review if I didn't have exams coming up in two weeks.

KG is right about the minimum specs. If you don't have more than a P4 2GHz and a decent graphic card (like an ATI Radeon 9600), you probably shouldn't even think about buying it. If you do, be prepared to spend lots of money upgrading your PC. :)

Need new computer. To get new computer need job. Have neither. Can't play it.

01-04-2004, 15:12:24
Steal one.

02-04-2004, 23:16:42
A job?

I went looking for it today (admittedly at only one place) and couldn't find it. Heard it was DVD only? About time as nearly every box that would be able to play it would have it. Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow is killing an unhealthy amount of time for me instead.

I finally found it. Had to raise my OC insanely high on my 9800 Pro, though now it runs everything at max with light filtering. Looks beautiful, especially with AF with the long draw distances.

09-04-2004, 17:32:27
I didn't find it in the shops but maybe they're still working on the german localisation :D

09-04-2004, 17:51:09
I've got a copy. It was in the shops for a bit but was put on the index after a week or so. You'll have to wait until a 'proper' German version is released. AFAIk it's already being worked on. :rolleyes:

I heard that instead of shooting bad guys it'll contain having to throw ice cream at Easter bunnies and Santa Claus.

Or robots or aliens with green blood.
Just exactly as they told me in the army

Ah, the German cencorship laws. Oh how we laughed.

10-04-2004, 07:53:40
The funny thing is that it was developed in Germany. Well, Bavaria actually

This is a great game.
Once you sort out your display.

But it really is beautiful.

Just ventured onto multiplayer....surprisingly fun.
Really an enjoyable shooty romp.
And no 1337 kids on the servers either (well the ones I went on)
Bang bang bang slash slash ooooooooooow

17-04-2004, 16:47:33
Oh, they got servers for old farts like you?

My site has some far cry screen shots (25 actually)

I just got this as a free bonus with my motherboard/CPU purchase at Newegg.

Anyone know what it is, and is it any good?

Dowloaded the demo. That was pretty cool. Also played the full version in a couple places when I went to GDC
