you guys should check out mod for FarCry many of them made the game looking unbelieveable.
one mod is called The Delta Sector.
the graphics are amazing it looks a bit like crysis.
im a CryEngine modder by myself and i know that the CE1 has alot of features who have never been used in this game.
and this is a old video the games looks much more better.
i think that was a pre alpha version of the engine

Aion (http://de.aiononline.com/) is a game developed with CryEngine (1) so there are two commercial games: Far-cry (1) & Aion. But don't forget all the massive good (released!!!) mods for the cryEngine(1).
