  • Summary: The incident at Jacutan Archipelago changed Jack Carver's life forever. Jack has had little choice but to embrace the disturbing talents unleashed by Krieger's unique brand of folk medicine. Back at his home port in Micronesia, Jack thought he had finally found paradise. But when a gorgeous woman draws him in on a dangerous heist, their sun-drenched days take a chilling turn. Hunted for a murder he didn't commit, Jack must draw on his most savage instincts to make his predators his prey. Dig deeper into the power of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck through survival tactics that include driving, shooting, jumping, balancing, climbing, grenading, and Far Cry’s ever-popular Feral attacking. Choose from a variety of weapons in a struggle to endure the rebel-infested jungle. Take down an unsuspecting victim from behind with a machete or meet the fight head-on with your machine gun. From ATVs to hovercrafts, pickup trucks to Jet Skis, drive over, around, and through vicious combat situations. Utilize the lush, tropical surroundings to your advantage, using stealth to sneak through the foliage past unsuspecting rebels. Feel what its like to be the predator, not the prey, as you unleash the beast within. Jump higher, run faster, and slash with more fury than all of your enemies combined through the animalistic feral abilities unique to the Far Cry series. Challenge your friends in Far Cry: Vengeance's frenetic Chaos mode as you battle to be the last person standing. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. Certain play aspects are really fun on the Wii controls, such as driving like a maniac through the jungles, and roaring along in feral mode, swatting enemies like you're hitting a home run. But the game suffers from weak graphics, and a why-did-they-bother multiplayer mode that supports only two players.
  2. We expect something special from Far Cry and, frankly, Vengeance just isn't up to scratch. Like a Z-list celebrity, leave this one in the jungle.
  3. The implementation of the Wii controls is solid, but there’s no getting around the fact that this is an old game that’s been repurposed for Nintendo’s new controller to make a quick buck.
  4. The graphics would shame a third-party N64 game - theyr'e that bad. [Mar 2007, p.74]
  5. A bad conversion of an almost year-old Xbox game. Vengeance is playable but it's a massively disappointing Wii debut for the Far Cry series, and the worst FPS on the console so far. [Mar 2007, p.84]
  6. 30
    The real problem here is the complete disregard for performance. The frame rate drops so frequently that the game is nearly rendered completely unplayable. I can't even imagine how this got through a certification phase prior to release.
  7. If the GameCube could handle Metroid Prime's environments and beasties so beautifully, there's no reason the superior Wii can't deliver a first-person shooter worth remembering. Unfortunately, Far Cry Vegeance sure as hell isn't it.

    Farcry, Well, what can I say? Brill, brill, brill... The longer levels, the great gameplay and a hint of puzzle involved makes this game a definite win win situation for the buyer. There are some glitches, more than most games, and also some things that could definite be improved but overall a excellent game for shoot'em'up styles and adventure games Expand

    I'm very disappointed. I already posted about how it complains and stops game play when I sit a certain distance from the screen. This is the 1st game to do this and I have quite a few. Also the graphics are quite poor and frame rate is jumpy at times. Cut scenes are extremely low quality. AI is laughable to the point where you can sometimes shoot one enemy and his buddies just stand around and don't even notice. Zelda is a beautiful game that shows what the Wii is capable of. Far Cry looks just like a bad xbox port rushed out the door for xmas. Expand

    If I had to pick a word to describe this game, it would be... "Dreadful". Really. What are the main things we expect from Far Cry? Gorgeous environments? Excellent AI? Well you won't find either of those things here. Look at the ground about 10 metres away. Its just green. Walk forward. 2 metres away, it renders some foliage. Try driving a vehicle. If you can live with 10fps, you're a better man than me. The AI is *wait till you get close then shoot badly, repeating uncomprehendable phrases*. Redeeming features: Some of the feral powers are cool, but not really new. Environments are pretty big. So yeah, mostly awful. Expand

    This game is absolutely terrible. I just hope people don't think this is the fault of the Wii, but rather Ubisofts fault for releasing a badly ported and terrible game. Shame on them. Call of Duty 3 on the Wii, is another port, and yet it manages to not have the same graphical shortcomings and terrible glitches as this, so honestly, what were ubisoft thinking? Dollar signs, I imagine. Expand
