5.0 out of 5 stars Follow your instinct and buy this game, 23 Nov 2005
This review is from: Far Cry Instincts (Xbox) (Video Game)
Far Cry Instincts is a hugely impressive game ported from the PC original. It's not a direct port however. Despite being very expansive in scale, the levels are more linear than before. Carver (your character) now also develops feral abilities (exclusive to XBox) including increased strength, speed and jumping abilities. You can also follow the scents of your enemies and hunt them down!
The graphics are wonderful in Far Cry Instincts. They are colourful, detailed and the water and lighting effects are incredible (especially the water - it looks so realistic). Trees even move in the window and effect lighting and shodows in real-time. The only slight downer is pop-up on occasion.
Enemy AI is a bit hit and miss. 50% of the time the enemies use intelligent tactics and prove to be challenging adversaries. The other 50% they are incredibly stupid (and blind) - they sometime stand around in battle just waiting to be shot and on several occasions I have walked right in front of them and they haven't twigged.
There is also the opportunity to use various vehicles including boats, jeeps, quad bikes, hangliders and hover crafts. They are slighlty awkward to control - the left analogue stick controls the vehicle whilst the right analogue stick controls which direction you face (to shoot the bad guys).
Overall, this is a thoroughly enjoyable game. It's challenging but is always fair - it is always possible to progress but there is a sense of achievement in doing so. It looks gorgeous and plays extremely well. This is one of the best games I have played in a quite a while and is highly recommended.
