Far Cry is looking incredible. That game could be a real classic and it could really add something FPS games have lacked, openness. The levels aren't a path but an area and I gather you are pretty much free to do what you want. I'm playing through Splinter Cell right now and while it is incredibly bad-ass, the linearity brings tears to my eyes and it really is a wasted opportunity. Far Cry looks to be the complete opposite gameplay wise and graphically it is looking even better. The screenshots with that Q&A are top-knotch, much better than the tech demo I played a couple of years ago and that was so good then that it still looks amazing last time I saw it (shame it doesn't work on my Rad9700
I kinda feel they should shut up and develop the game. History is littered with games that have been hyped to hell and back 6-12 months before the expected release just to be delayed and delayed until they become a laughing stock (Diaktana, Republic, Duke 4Ever, TF2 etc). These guys should be careful. If I was them, I shut up until the game is about to go gold and then go crazy.
One to keep an eye on anyway, that's for sure.
