I spent some time playing through the Far Cry demo, and boy, the game does look good. The dark passageways with complex shadowing and volumetric fog give off that Doom III vibe, but the whole look of the game is impressive, not just the creepy bits. This is a nice example, as some folks mentioned in the comments earlier, of a DX9 game that can show off today's fancy hardware. Runs great on my lowly Radeon 9500 Pro. If a 500MB download doesn't bother you, check it out.

Oh, and some folks are apparently doing a TR get-together in L.A. tomorrow (Friday) night. If you're out that way, you may want to join 'em.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
