Welcome To Paradise....
A tropical paradise seethes with hidden evil in Far Cry, a cunningly
detailed action shooter that pushes the boundaries of combat to shocking new
Freelance mariner Jack Carver is cursing the day he ever came to this
island. A week ago, a brash female reporter named Valerie had offered him an
incredible sum of cash to take her to this unspoiled paradise. Shortly after
docking, however, Jack's boat was greeted by artillery fire from a mysterious
militia group swarming about the island.
With his boat destroyed, his money gone, and the gorgeous Valerie suddenly
missing, Jack now finds himself facing an army of mercenaries amidst the wilds
of the island, with nothing but a gun and his wits to survive. But the further
he pushes into the lush jungle canopy, the stranger things become. Jack
encounters an insider within the militia group who reveals the horrific details
of the mercenaries' true intentions. He presents Jack with an unsettling
choice: battle the deadliest mercenaries, or condemn the human race to a
maniac's insidious agenda.
