Visually disappointing Jungle warfare.
For anyone whos blasted through Jack Carvers brutal jungle adventures on the Xbox or PC, your first glimpse of Far Cry Vengeance will be a crippling disappointment; while earlier editions featured visuals to die for especially on the Xbox, surely the systems best looking game the Wii version often looks like its running on a PSP, with jerky enemies, chunky environments and special effects that cant hold a candle to previous episodes.
Visual disappointments aside, Vengeance does a fine job of using the Wiis nunchuk and remote in tandem to steer the action. And while in Ubisofts other Wii blaster, Red Steel, the slightest movement sends you reeling unceremoniously into walls, Vengeance feels less twitchy and unforgiving, showing the Wii is perfectly capable of handling shooters, and that using the motion controls makes you feel as if youre part of a real gunfight.
Ridicously stupid enemies teamed with the blocky visuals make Vengeance an initially horrifying experience, but if you cant survive without a little gunplay on your new console and are willing to put in the effort to get to grips with the controls, this ambitious blaster is certainly worth a shot.
