Awesome Game
Awesome FPS game where you take the role of Jack Carver and fight monsters and men. Great MP and all round game.

Simply gorgeous - but crap multiplayer
When this came out all those years ago we were all blown away by the graphics.
The island is just beautiful. You get to see it on land, in vehicles, by boat and even in a handglider.
The day and night cycles make it look even better when you start fighting at dawn or in the dead of night.
Weapons are the usual mix of pistols, rifles, sniper rifles. But there are also rocket launchers and a bow and arrow for the adventurous.
Although the game is fairly linear (i.e. you have to complete the objectives in the order given) but how you do it is completely open.
You can storm the enemy camp with guns blazing, or sneak around and silently pick the gaurds off with the knife, sniper or bow and arrow.
Noises and gunfire alert guards and set off alarms - and then you just have to run as the AI is pretty good.
Fortunately you can hide in the scenery, with plenty of trees and bushes for cover, which means you can actually get away and ambush the hunters.
Looks a little dated now compared to Crysis, but if you haven't got the latest hardware it's still great. Just don't bother with multiplayer.
