    The fact Ubi said eons ago it would be “560 Microsoft Points” (£4.75) and it’s £7.99 (800 would have been £6.75) is a definite no, although I’d like to know how different this port is to Instincts Predator.

    If you can release this arcade game on a Tuesday you can release others so multiformat releases don’t get the drop on you. I’ve been saying this for years.

    Continue milking games…

    • usrev

      how is this milking far cry, they had 3, which people loved, blood dragon as an arcade game that was completely different, and now like 10 months later they have a remake of the original game.

      this isn’t milking. milking would be far cry 4 coming out tomorrow, preorder now get map editor free.

      • evilfangs .

        It’s like an anniversary of the first Far Cry releasing. I wouldn’t really class it as milking.

      • Chakso

        Blood Dragon wasnt completely different. It was just Farcry 3 with a palette swap. The only new thing they added was the Blood Dragons.

        Farcry 4 is coming out soon btw, and you will be encouraged to pre-order if you want access to the full content. ;)

        I agree that this isnt Milking though, this is just re-releasing a decade old classic to an audience that probably missed out or was too young the first time around.

        • usrev

          blood dragon focused a lot on humor, though enemies and the general idea of capturing areas was the same it was a different game. plus again it wasn’t a retail title.

          FC4 isn’t coming out this year last I heard.

    • Does Not Equal

      If by “milking” you mean “releasing the original PC version made by Crytek that started the franchise,” then yes. You’re so correct.

      When telling the truth, it’s best to make sure it’s actually true.

      • BigBernard

        That’s fascinating.

        • Does Not Equal

          I’m genuinely flattered that you’ve stolen my line. Keep trying… !

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            people like you make me come back to this blog. it sure isn’t the deals. LOL

          • BigBernard

            That’s lovely.

          • Does Not Equal

            Atta boy!

          • BigBernard

            That’s fascinating.

          • Does Not Equal

            Aw, you were doing so well. You’ll get it someday. I believe in you.

          • BigBernard

            That’s lovely.

          • Does Not Equal

            I know you’re trying your best.
            Who’s a good boy? Who’s a good boy? That’s right, YOU are.

    • ElektroDragon

      Stupid comment. There have only been 3 actual Far Cry games, not 10? like Call of Duty.

  • That Guy

    Wow. Or I could just go get Far Cry Instincts Predator which is the same game with more content for only $2.99.

    • Michael Burden

      Hardly the same game – this version is more open world than Instincts which was narrowed down greatly to work on the original Xbox (which was then ported to the 360). Also doesn’t have the predator super powers.

    • Chakso

      But its not the same game at all. Did you never play the Original Farcry?
      In terms of gameplay and level design Farcry and Farcry Instincts have about as much in common as Farcry and Crysis do.

    • Andres Leal

      Oh you are wrong,far cry instincts predator is conformed by two games,far cry instincts and evolution,named on 360 instincts predator,this game is the first far cry,it was only launched on pc.and developed by crytek and published by ubisoft.

      • That Guy

        I might try it then. I hated Instincts Predator. Still not paying that much though. Its the same price as on steam but I could have gotten it a hundred times for $2.50 on there but was never interested.

  • Beano

    I would definitely pay $1 for this

  • Johan Lilja

    $20 for this in Sweden

  • ElektroDragon

    Wow, I don’t remember the game being this hard on PC. I mean OK, I am playing on Hard, but even the tutorial is absolutely BRUTAL.

    • PC_master_race

      console noob

      • ElektroDragon

        Yeah I guess if playing hundreds of games exclusively on console since I ditched the PC mostly in 2005 means I am still a console noob, so be it.

  • http://photovoltaik.bandcamp.com/ Ujn Hunter

    Need a bigger hard drive… argh!

  • Takeshi Kovacs

    So you make us wait like a year and then double the price? No sale. The saddest part? It actually looked better on my average PC when it came out. It’s like Crytek used the lowest resolution textures and models in this build.

  • NarcoSleepy

    Enjoyed FarCry Instincts, and loved FarCry 3 (and Blood Dragon). I would consider getting now if I didn’t already have a huge backlog of games I need to get through.

  • Marcus Roof

    make that price say $5 and I’m sold…(understand that I started out with $2.50 in my head, you said $7.50)…we haggled and met in the middle.
