Jack Carver x archipelago x female journalist = vacation! Except, of course, for the weaponizing of genetic engineering, the genocide of local islanders, and the deformed creatures created by a mad scientist named Krieger. This puppy had it all: beaches, rain forests, canyons, mines, swamps, and volcanoes, oh my. FPS dopeness.

The original PC version features many more extensive worlds that the Xbox doesn't have the juice to handle.
