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.

3.0 out of 5 stars how to install on 64bit Windows November 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
Only tested on Win8 Pro 64 but should work with Win7 as well.

1: download "[...]" or "[...]"
if you don't trust a random file instructions on creating your own at end of page.

2: copy it to where you unpacked the game installer, next to "FC32.msi"

3: open a command prompt as administrator in that directory

4: type this substituting your target directory for "D:\GAMES\Ubisoft\Far Cry\"
msiexec /a FC32.msi TARGETDIR="D:\GAMES\Ubisoft\Far Cry\" TRANSFORMS=FC64.mst

5: if you want to run the 32bit version, move everything in "Far Cry\System32" to "Far Cry"

6:[optional] find and apply the 32->64 bit upgrade and the extra content pack

7: play

To create the mst yourself:
1: download Orca msi editor, run it, open FC32.msi
2: Menu\Transforms\New Transform
3: in the Property table, right click\add Row, name ISSETUPDRIVEN, value=1
4: Menu\Transforms\Generate Transform, save as FC64.mst to get playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game March 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game February 24, 2013
By Goblin5
This game was great. The best shooter game I've played. Certain parts of the game are like a puzzle so it makes it hard to pass some levels. Plot was original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far Cry 32 Bit OS Only February 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money and your time January 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, little bit of set up required. December 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
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,

Ubisoft never makes a bad game. FarCry one of their best. Quick download forever, never have to worry about switching to new computer and look for disc. Just log on, download, install and play

4.0 out of 5 stars Get the patch for 64 bit October 16, 2012
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.

Far Cry II and Far Cry 3 are my favorite shooter games. It's like being in the environment you're playing. After certain missions I would be left sweating and heart pounding. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Very slow
Has a lot of problem with stuck player in single mode. A lot of driving around to find diamonds (money) just to get up grades or weapons.
