Far Cry: Vengeance - Used
Dont even look at it...............
This game is absolutely horrible......... The graphics are bad...... It is pretty short..... and the gameplay is what just even more horrible! I feel this game was made way to fast which resulted in this game being bad....... If you want a good shooter game just get one that is for ps3 or xbox because they are wayyyy better
The real truth of this game..
Alright this is my full review of far cry vengeance for the wii...The far cry series first came out for the pc and 360 ...soon the publishers decided to put it for the wii version....you would think that putting this game on the wii version would sell great for its awesome motion controls......but sadly though this version of the game is quite awful...
to begin, the intro cut-scene you can tell right away that the graphics is just awful and horrible to even look at, and to make it worse the cut scene seems to have frame rate issues....but we are not here to judge by the cut scene....right? Well The actual game itself has average graphics or less then that...i'm quite serious....
next is the story line...if you have never, and I mean never played a far cry game in your life like me, and played it on the wii...you can actually enjoy the story line and the story it-self is average, but since I have not played or heard about the story, its actually quite good...
next is the controls, when you start playing the game, it has the basic movements of a FPS controls...i have heard many people complaining that the controls are hard to move around espically when your driving in the game...i personally had no problem driving the car in the game at all, my guess which why many people think the controls are hard to use is because they haven't experience the motion controls very long for the wii, and believe me, I already had my wii for over 2 yrs and driving in this game is really simple...all you have to do is use your control stick to drive forward or backwards-left or right....
finally the gameplay itself, your a first person player who has to escape the rebels, whats really sad about this game is the lack of stupidity of the AI's in this game, you can actually get close to a rebel and stand there for a very long period of time, until he finally notice you when your in front of him....sad huh? Didn't I mention that this game is quite long though? There are 9 islands total in the game, and each island is quite large to explore, some are short but most of them are wide islands which you can explore... but alas if you have already played this game for the 360 or pc, you already know how the game play is and how awful it is for this version, BUT!! if you have never played a far cry game in your life and bought it for the wii version you can actually enjoy playing this game..if of course you don't mind the graphics itself.....the only positive thing about the whole thing is that it has great sound for the game...
overall this game is quite good if you have never played it, but if you have..then this game is obviously a horrible version for the wii... the only thing that many people would agree that the sound is actually good....overall I give this game 6 out of 10, because even though this game can be awful, new comers that have has never heard or played this game can actually enjoy it...
Let me start out by saying that I know that it is not the best game in the world but it is acuttualy kind of fun. The other ones in the series are much better. In vengence the graphics are just ugly. there worst than most last gen games. The sound is ok. The control are also ok. They are really bad for the driving segments. but for the rest of the game they are kinda(except zooming is weird). You just point to shoot, and swing the remote to use the knife. You shake the nunchuk to jump. The game itself is pretty long. there are nine different islands and they are all pretty big. The storyline is pretty basic and like the other far cry games it is set in a jungle setting. the multi payer is ok. you find yourself spending alot of time looking for the other person. the price of the game is pretty resonible. you should at least give it a chance as a rental.
Not as good as rest of series.
Far Cry Vengeance for the Wii isn't as good as you would think. When you shoot anyone in the head with any gun other than the sniper like guns they don't die! I like that when you blow up CERTAIN buildings they fall down. That is the only thing about this game except for the amount of guns that you can use. This game makes Far Cry 2 look like a god. In my opinion Far Cry 2 is the best game that has ever came out so far this year or ever since Gears of War. Far Cry Vengeance is a game for a younger gamer who just got their Wii. But on a serious note this game is one of the worst Wii game graphics that I have seen. This has bad graphics but the title would just draw you in and make you want to buy the game. Thats the only reason why I bought it.
it isn't as bad as people say
This game, although not the best of the series, is actually a good solid first person shooter for the system. Sure the graphics are not the best, or by any means living up to the systems potential, but I am sure that everyone can get around that. The enemies are not the smartest, highly trained commandos ever, but it is still fun to go around shooting, slashing and clawing enemies in a beach environment. The sound does sound like it came from the past gaming systems, but you still get to hear the shooting and story line. The story is interesting at times but can be kind of boring. The controls are mainly where the game fails the most. You have to turn the controller to turn jack which can be very slow and force you to mess with the options until you get the right controller responsiveness. Although overall it does not seem like a very good game if you like the series you will most likely still enjoy this game.
If I could do thihs again, I wouldn't buy this game. This game is completley terrible. I think it might be better if it wasn't for the wii. The controls are hard to use, the graphics are worse then anything I have ever seen, and the storyline isn't any better. The sound is the only thing that you could call mediokre in this game. This is one game you don't want to get for the wii. I think the wii is meant for sports games, not shooting games. If you are going to get this game, you should try to find it for the xbox 360 or PS3. I could of gotten a game that is 100% better for the same price. One game that is like this and is awesome for the wii is Resident Evil 4. I would advise buying RE4 instead of far cry for any system, espescially the wii.
When I first purchased this game, I had good hopes. Seemed like it would be a decent action game but I was dead wrong. The graphics are TERRIBLE. The Wii could so much better, so why do the graphics look like a cheap PS2 game? The controls and the camera angles get very annoying and frustrating. I found myself pressing buttons that do nothing! The story is boring and repetetive, with a simple plot... could be a lot better. Although a decent collection of weapons and places to fight, the game truly just was no where near as good as the other titles of the series. I definetly do NOT reccomend this game at all. I regret every buying it, infact I'd say its one of the worst games I've ever played. So definetly spend your money on something else... Awful game...
