  1. Even if you have already played Instincts on the Xbox I can’t encourage you enough to check out the 360 version of Far Cry. The graphical improvements are simply outstanding, especially on an HDTV, and easily approach the quality of the original PC game.

    A feature-packed bundle that's fun to play, but won't blow the socks off Fary Cry experts. [May 2006, p.77]

    Killing things with feral powers is always enjoyable, and the expanded multiplayer options help to keep this game entertaining long after you blaze through the new single player content.
  4. Far Cry debuts on the 360 with a bang, featuring the same solid gameplay and lush visual, and adds a superb multiplayer and map-creator to enhance its longevity.
  5. An enjoyable experience, and the animalistic twist on the usual weaponry is a nice idea, but as all of us who shelled out on the new Microsoft console should be asking ‘is the 360 really being stretched by this?’
  6. All of this is topped with solid online play and a pretty decent map-making tool. It will take some time to create your own perfect jungle battlefield, but this feature is a gold mine for online shooters.

    It'd need to deliver a pretty substantial kick in the ass to get anyone to purchase it yet again, but Far Cry: Instincts -- Predator falls quite a bit short in the asskick department. It just doesn't offer enough new material beyond yet another noun tacked to the end of its ever-lengthening name.

    Basically this is a port of the reg Xbox version with added content and the best water graphics ever to hit a console. Is that enough reason Basically this is a port of the reg Xbox version with added content and the best water graphics ever to hit a console. Is that enough reason to buy it though? No, the multiplayer however is! With the detailed map editor (which is like a fun game in itself) that can be so fun when you and your buddies can swap maps and spend endless hours on user created map, some good, many just plain stupid. Player models are sub par for Nex-Gen, controlls are touchy, lag can be an issue. But once you get in that fun room with no lag and an endless supply of maps....the fun never stops. A must buy for online mulitpplayer fans. Expand

    Another last gen port, another last gen game on the 360. Xbox graphics in higher reoslution with Xbox 1 textures, tons of pop-up, toned down Another last gen port, another last gen game on the 360. Xbox graphics in higher reoslution with Xbox 1 textures, tons of pop-up, toned down graphics online and just overall bad look other than the water. Stupid single player mode that is boring, linear and has the worst A.I. ever.Controls are still clunky with sub menues for weapons and a bad melee button that can not be aimed so you look at the ground when using it while the enemy runs behind you and shoots you, and the hit detection is still nonexistent. You can unload on enemies for 30 seconds and not know if you're hitting them until they're dead. Online is garbage just like the last one, with tons of the age-old Ubisoft menues to wade through and the lag is unbearable. It's not normal lag like COD2, but a different kind of lag that only Farcry has which I call the "Farcry lag syndrome" which is worse than the game crashing. It causes you and your enemies to see each other in one place when you are both really somewhere else making each other see the other person shooting at where you used to be and still getting a kill. Or you can throw a grenade or fire a rocket with no explosion or no rocket even leaving the rocket launcher and 2 minutes later you're doing nothing and it tells you that you finally killed the other person with the grenade or the rocket. A worhtless port that everyone that has played COD2 or even Halo 2 will take back within the first or second day if they treasure good online play and don;t want to play crap gams with AAA names.

    While this is my favourite title ever on PC and I was assuming it would be of a lower quality on any console other than PC. Even I was amazed While this is my favourite title ever on PC and I was assuming it would be of a lower quality on any console other than PC. Even I was amazed by how bad this was, graphically it's okay but it's the massive reduction in enemy AI that really disappoints. Also the sound and feel of the weapons is extremely poor, this was really highlighted by having just finished Rainbow Six-Vegas. Which was everything I expecting this version to be in terms of the fire fights. I gave it 0 because after all this time and technology they've managed to make every aspect of the game not just less (which I could have lived with) but actually suck. Even the pacing of the game seems to be off reducing the tension tremendously. If you liked this on the 360 try it on a top end PC it'll blow your mind. Sad effort. Expand
