Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Paradise Gone Wrong!

Ex-Ocean Patrol officer Jack Carver runs a small charter operation in the SouthPacific. Some claim he left the Patrol in search of a new life others say he was ousted against his will. Either way Jack now goes where the currents carry him transporting tourists and small cargo amongst remote islands via his boat the Sirocco. Business seems slow until a fetching journalist hires him to escort her to an uncharted island in Micronesia. Little does Jack know that his sun-drenched course in life is about to take an unexpectedly deadly turn. Their destination? A carefree utopia of white sands emerald jungles and crystal waters fit for the inviting pages of a travel brochure. But as Jack and his client soon discover paradise can be deceiving. Behind the lush canopies and lazy hillsides bent minds conspire fashioning their dark agenda under the guard of countless deadly mercenaries.Outwit hordes of cunning mercenaries annihilate threats from more than kilometer away and use every vehicle weapon and strategy at your disposal to outlast the island's evils and escape with your life. Jack may not know it just yet but his routine character job will soon be a fond and distant memory washed away by relentless combat and an all-new brand of tropical terror.

This is no vacation. It's going to be all-out war as Jack flaunts his will to survive in a tension-filled tale of paradise gone incredibly wrong.

I had a lot of trouble downloading but in the end, it was worth it because this is the best game I have ever played. I continue to find secrets even after playing many times. It crashes a lot but I still am able to play because it's so good.

This game requires a lot of time spent which to me is good for my money. Lots of walking and exploring along with driving jeeps mixed in with battles and strategy. Difficulty level is not real high but does get a little intense once and a while. Roaming the countryside with animals running around and some attacking you is fun.

I got this free download when I pre-ordered Far Cry 3. The game worked fine once I got it running, but it took a little bit to get moving. First, you'll see in the description it says 32 bit OS only, that means 32 Bit OS Only. It runs on a 64 bit computer but you can't install it. I had to install it onto my old computer and copy the files over to my newer 64 bit computer. After wards I needed to get the .dll files for the program to let itself run.
Those were all of the negatives, here are the positives.
The game is amazing. While it is relatively old now, it is quite possibly the best shooter I have ever played. Aside from characters having cheesy lines and moving oddly in cut scenes, the game play is solid. Also, the great thing about this game is that it gets insanely difficult, even on the easiest setting. Don't expect a breeze of a game. Expect to spend time actually figuring out enemy weaknesses and learning how to shoot a gun. Although I guarantee you'll get stressed out about certain parts of this game, the 10 hour or so ride is great. Beating it is the biggest payoff I ever felt in completing a game. I'm not going to lie, I feel like a pro for beating this.... on the easy setting...
4 stars only just because of setting up the game. If you have a 32 Bit OS read my review as a 5 star,

I tried this when it first came out, PC Gamer magazine CD trial thing. The computers I had back then were not able to run this. It's okay, not as good as I thought it would be. Of course I'm comparing it to what is out there today which isn't fair.

This game allows you to seek new adventures each time you enter. There are countless things that challenge you and with two different ways to end the game you cannot go wrong by choosing either one. FC and FC2 were good but the graphics and the variety of schemes in FC3 make it more enjoyable to play than it's predecessors.

I tried following Paul's method to modify the setup exe using Orca but was unsuccessful (probably something I missed.) I was looking for any alternate methods for install and found one in the Ubisoft forums which is only possible if you have a 32-bit OS in a dual boot setup or on another computer.

Basically, download the install folder from Amazon on another computer or paritition running the 32-bit OS and install onto that OS. After the install is completed simply cut or copy the game folder from the Program Files directory and transfer it onto a flash drive. Transfer that folder into the Program Files directory into your 64-bit OS. Search for and download the 64-bit patch for Far Cry and install it. The patch creates a new 64-bit folder in the game directory. In that directory is the executable to run the game in 64-bit. Adjust your settings accordingly and voila.

As a side note, I had to forcibly shut down far cry after running the first time due to it hanging onto a black screen after initial setup. Then again when I first started a campaign as it hung on the loading screen. Since those two occurences everything is running smoothly now.

After installing but before playing, find the x64 patch on the web and install it. This game runs GREAT on my HP G62 laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate. I played it when it was new and it's almost like a different game when running it in 64 bit with better hardware than I could afford back then, lol.
