received my issue today, they gave it a 94%, said it had better graphics than Far Cry, excellent sound and was very scary. they didnt mention anything about AI, but they did say it had a good physics engine...

Far Cry has a good engine, and might be fun, but I wouldn't say it's award winning, I think PC Gamer is starting to fall for the new generation of pretty games. It'll wear off soon, probably when an actual great game comes out, then it'll get underrated, lol.

i'm playing through Far Cry right now, and i have to say its very good, obviously graphics, but also the enemy AI and overal gameplay, the story could use a little bit of help though.

Doom‚¬≥ got a 94% because they said there was a few points at which attempts at humor fell flat. I honestly feel this is unjustifiable, marking 6% off for humor when it isnt even supposed to be a humerous game. They should mark it for what is really is, a horrer FPS.

yea im becoming increasingly aware of these bizzare ratings. Demon i hope you are judging far cry after you have played and beat the game. Because it truly is award winning. If doom 3 is anything less than i have seen in videos and screenshots (which i doubt) then far cry easily suprases it.


Far has more than pretty graphics, it has an awesome singleplayer.

Um, I'm not too into unrealistic games where one person can take out an entire island full of people, and running over health packs will make your injuries go away.

I am one of the people that agreed with CGW naming Operation Flashpoint game of the year a few years back. Those are the types of games I enjoy.

I played the first Far Cry demo and loved it. The graphics were awesome, water was dealy. Then played the second, and won't buy the game because of it. I am SO tired of alien mutant experiments that games like Doom 3 and Halflife two may, repeat MAY not be on my to buy list.

the monsters in far cry were a bit of a turnoff, but they have not been a HUGE part of the game and the majority of your battles are still against the mercs, Far Cry is solid, im actually going to buy Doom 3 now, before i thought i may buy it a few months after release...

well demon its not realistic like OFP or RVs but it is fun. And gamewise it is award winning. I have no doubt if doom 3 or hl2 are anything less Far cry will be snagging game of the year.
