Ranking the Far Cry Games from Best to Worst

2. Far Cry

German developer Crytek delivered a sucker punch with Far Cry. Not only was the game miles ahead of the competition when it launched back in 2004, it also turned out to be a stunning first-person shooter in its own right.

This was partly thanks to the game’s cutting-edge graphics: Far Cry’s detailed jungles and islands knocked many people’s socks off. These were populated with the most ruthless enemies people had seen in a game, the mercenaries of baddie Dr. Krieger. The game’s difficulty may have put off some even during the game’s first level though, as the mercenaries on the game’s South Pacific islands could easily hit you from a long distance. Plus, the game’s lack of save points means most players are unlikely to have reached the end of Crytek’s masterpiece. This is still the best entry in the series without open-world gameplay, though, and surely deserves credit for that.
