Far Cry: Instincts
« on: October 02, 2005, 09:28:55 PM »
For those of you who have played Far Cry for the Pc a year ago, you can rest assured that they have revised the whole game with a new singleplayer campaign (following pretty much the same story-line however), traded out the voice actors (can't really tell if that's a good or bad thing, but so far they've done their job good at entertaining and swearing like hell) and basically just made it alot better from what it used to be.

I haven't completed the game, but I'm a couple of levels into it, and man those are huge! The jungle maps are amazing and so is the environment and landscapes. It's really big and epic and I love this game more then what I did for the Pc.

It's really worth checking out if you have an Xbox (sorry PS2-people, no fun for you!) and like realistic/fast FPS action.

By realistic, I mean that you can't just charge in to a nest of Mercenaries and expect yourself to walk out of there without a scratch, so you have to plan your attacks carefully and take them all out one by one. It's so neeaat. :wub:

Anyone else who tried it? Any thoughts?

Not in the first half of the game in any case ;) I haven't played it, but then again I haven't played anything newer than red alert 2, but the screens and such I've seen in magazines and on tv all looked really cool..

Hai. :)

I love the part after you have.. undergone a few physical changes. Right when you think you got the game in a firm grip it turns the tables and takes you into a new direction.

Which reminds me, I'm off to playing it some more!

Oh and I almost forgot! There's also a Level Editor that comes with the game, you can unfortunately only make Multiplayer maps, but it's great fun to use! The results are also pretty darn amazing, you just have to create the desired landscape and put in the things you want in (vehicles, weapons, bunkers, buildings etc) and you're goo'tu'go on Xbox Live!, Splitscreen or System Link!

I don't have an XBox - but from what I've seen on TV it's pretty damn awesome :) Too bad there's no PC version of it :(

That's indeed the sucky part of it. I loved Far Cry, and I would love to play Instincts on PC if it comes out!

Did they make the game remotely beatable?

I had to cheat to get past one part in the last level in the PC version, when you're in the heart of a vulcan. It was fucking impossible to get by there. :/

But that was only once, promix. :)

I'm at the last chapter now, the Volcano location to find and eliminate Crowe.. It's pretty damn hard with all those elite troops running around with M16's with M203's (sp?) attached to them.

Actually they're M4s, but yeah the Grenade launchers are called M203s (Sorry, just being picky as usual :P )

(And I shall continue it :P)

But this is an M4 Carbine:


This is what's used in Instincts (I know they changed it from the PC version, but for the better really!):

Ah I thought you were talking about the PC version there - the Instincts Rifle looks like a bastard mix of an M16 and a FAMAS (as I've heard it put) Still looks pretty cool though :)
