But when a gorgeousThe 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] Collapse

  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.

    The graphics would shame a third-party N64 game - theyr'e that bad. [Mar 2007, p.74]

    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. One of the Wii's worst games, an underdeveloped mess that will turn off most of its players by the middle – or possibly even the beginning -- of level one. Ubisoft attempted some innovative control techniques, but most of them feel awful-- even doing simple things like jumping and lobbing grenades sucks.
  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 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

    You can try nintendo, but no matter what you say... "You are a kiddie console !" Just as I and almost everyone else thought... The Wii will You can try nintendo, but no matter what you say... "You are a kiddie console !" Just as I and almost everyone else thought... The Wii will be like the Gamecube and the N64, as in most of the best games for the system will be nintendo made games. And more adult oriented games from third parties will suck on this system for at least the first year or two. But by that time most companies will be moving away from the Wii, and then it's all kiddie games for the rest of the consoles life. This game doesn't play anywhere nearly as good as the 360 version. I didn't love the 360 version or anything, but it plays a lot better than this. I thought the Wii mote would have been ideal for PC type games as essentially you still have a point and click type of gameplay. But somehow I guess that part of the gameplay got lost somewhere. The Wii mote and games like this could have started to bridge the gap between PC gamers and console gamers, but now PC gamers have something to use when they declare that the PC has the best controls..."AGAIN!"

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
