    PlayStation owners didn't get this on console for a decade. We didn't miss much. [May 2014, p83]

    Far Cry is a series that’s gone on to much better things since the flawed original, and revisiting it 10 years later almost feels like pointing and laughing at the afflicted.

    But It, It gives old school feeling that I was 10 years old and hardly forgettable. Really nice landscapes.
    If they used the same code base, it is a wonderful job to make it working on PS3.
    Original Game used 500-600 MBs of RAM, I wonder how they have managed in just 256 RAM.

    i did not play the original far cry. i did play fc3 and loved it. i tried fc2 and was unimpressed with all the driving and map reading. iti did not play the original far cry. i did play fc3 and loved it. i tried fc2 and was unimpressed with all the driving and map reading. it was okay, but it didn't seem nearly as fun as fc3. i was skeptical about downloading fc classic, but i did anyway. for the life of me i cannot see how this wasn't well received by some. this game was an absolute blast. i can't wait for ubi to do a fc4. i am not a ubi shill btw. i do not like all their stuff, but they have made quite a few good games. this one is cheap, hell i can't remember but maybe 10 or 15 dollar download on ps. i know each to his own and people vary, but for god's sake this game was fun as hell for me. don't always believe the reviews.

    I consider the original Far Cry one of my favorite games ever. The action and the AI specifically are what always impressed me. This PS3I consider the original Far Cry one of my favorite games ever. The action and the AI specifically are what always impressed me. This PS3 port seems spot on. I've completed the game on PC over 3 times and I am quite familiar with it. If their goal was to port the game as close as possible with a better resolution than the original, then they accomplished it 100%. Playing the original Far Cry again on my PS3 is a dream come true. Sounds pathetic and sad, but it's true. I love this games. Well done guys!! Expand

    Gameplay:
    The game is nearly unplayable. Although, one does have to take into account the age of the game itself and the way games were designed back when they were not mainstream. They were tough; requiring skill, memorization, perseverance, and some luck. The AI is smart, and will shoot the instant they see you. It's annoying being prone and stealthy in this game, especially since it's useless. The enemy can spot you from a mile away, and that is no exaggeration. They can also inexplicably hit you with an automatic rifle from a mile away, even if you are covered by bushes. It's absolutely rediculous and frustrating. The driving mechanics are horrendous. It's more efficient to walk than even attempt to control a vehicle. In short, the entire game's control scheme is awkward. This game is definitely challenging, but it will frustrate you like no other game has.

    Story:
    The story is lackluster. There's little to no character development for any characters, the plot is cliché and predictable. However, you can't expect much from such an old title. Be warned: Do not expect a brilliant storyline.

    Graphics:
    Back in 2004, Far Cry set a milestone in visual quality. In 2014, not so much. Taking into account that it is a decade-old game, I didn't expect it to look mind-blowing. However, the carelessness of this "HD remake" is palpable. There is constant frame rate drops and graphical pop-in. Even the audio glitches out, forcing you to play a muted game on occasions.

    Verdict:
    I recommend that you do NOT purchase this game. Play the original on PC or wait until the game is on sale. This "remake" was rushed and poorly optimized. The game locked up my PS3 on FOUR separate occasions, forcing me to completely shut my console off. If you are a Far Cry 3 fan, do not purchase this game. It's a very different experience. If you are seeking a challenging FPS, this is your game. It's also good to explore older titles; it'll make you have an appreciation for modern video games.

    Why did I buy this game? This game is below average at max.
    Gameplay: (2/10)
    - Controls are stiff - Driving mechanics suck, walking is
    Why did I buy this game? This game is below average at max.
    Gameplay: (2/10)
    - Controls are stiff
    - Driving mechanics suck, walking is better
    - There is a sort of a delay when you go to aim
    - AI is overly smart.... why is this bad? Because its frustrating and ridiculous they spot me from miles away and can accurately shoot me from miles away when I am hiding in bushes with their assault rifles
    + Atleast the AI shoots when it spots you
    Graphics:(1/10)
    - First off graphics arent even updated and are using the same graphics since the original 2004 game(i wont cut off any points for this but I needed to make a point)
    - Game runs at a Max of 30 FPS with 2004 graphics, here you can tell they were lazy and this game was a cash grab for far cry console fans
    - There are texture pop ins with 2004 graphics, you gotta be kidding me?
    Storyline: (4/10)
    - Complete lackluster:
    - No character development
    - Total cliche and predictable
    OVERALL SCORE:
    -This game in the end is just a simple cash - grab and nothing else...Its better to get a PC from 2004 and play the original far cry on that
    -Ubisoft I dont know how you decided to say "Yea this game is okay, we`ll release it."
    -Also I dont know how people are giving this games 8 and 10 out of 10
    -Btw I think there is a demo for this game too, so check that out before buying this

    If you haven't played FarCry yet, then this isn't the edition for you.
    The controls feel horrible compared to more modern console shooters
    If you haven't played FarCry yet, then this isn't the edition for you.
    The controls feel horrible compared to more modern console shooters and are absolutely atrocious compared to the PC version, it just isn't satisfying to play.
    Then there's the fact that it runs in 720p with less than 30fps, my computer back in 2004 could do better than that and any new PC will max it out giving you a more fluid and responsive gameplay.
