Ive played and beat both. And i liked them both.
Other then a few small flaws in Farcry, i love it. lots of action. Ending was cool too. The Game gets better in alot of ways the further you get. Most ppl probly played the first 3 levels and quit.
Red Steel was so immersive. Very interesting. Swordfighting wasnt as good as i thought tho.
Half the people who say these games r 'bad' probably have never even played them.
