Summary: I bought this game with a subscription to xbox live in June Summer of 07. I think it was the perfect, best, and funest game for me. I dont like the all out imposible to get a kill action on halo 2 so I thought id give Far Cry Instincts a try. It was worth every pennie, the graphics are awsome for an xbox game the trap setting is nice the nice amount of weapons and vehicles, and the online play will have you on for months!
Summary: If you thought Halo or Halo 2 single player was good, then you haven't played far cry instincts. This game is the second best FPS in single player mode next to Half Life 2. Seriously, now that this game is less than $20 bucks you'll be happy you go it. The challenge of this game is well balanced, its fairly long considering you'll die a whole bunch, but it will make you come up with different approaches to different levels of the game.
Conclusion: this was a horrible game. The interface was chopped and screwed at best and the stages were made like a very short, ugly movie. I liked nightcrawler's stages because you never really see him in many vudeo games except, x-men, x-men2 ROA and a few others. So it was nice to be able to play as him for the brief time you was allowed to. But iceman's stages, they could've kept them in the scrapyard and did something a hellava lot better than that.
Summary: All I say is that this is way better than Halo or Halo 2(Although the Halo games had a better story line). The graphics and visuals are absolutely amazing and the gameplay is just absolutely fun. There are tons of weapons to choose from and the feral abilities are really fun to use. This is quite possibly the best shooter ever created for the Xbox.
Conclusion: Far Cry Instincts is brilliant, but when i first started to play this game i was not impressed due to the graphics looking a bit poor. After playing for half an hour or so i was hooked. The idea of the game is very original and different from other first person shooters that are around at the moment. The whole theory of evolving to the enviroment is amazing, turning into the hunter instead of the hunted.
Summary: I am having a lot of fun with this game and the graphics are amazing! Playing on a tropical island is too cool! And my wife is having a blast designing her own multiplayer levels for she and I to combat on. You start out with basically nothing when you begin creating your level and then you end up with this really neat little world to play in. I haven't gotten too far into the main storyline yet, but so far this game is definitely worth picking up.
Summary: For those who will read most reviews on this page, don't listen to them. This game is awesome. The Graphics are some of the best i've seen. Now I have to agree the AI is not the best and there is a long unskippable trailer every time you load a game, but these things are easy to pass up when you think about how much fun the game is. I really think this game is worth it's money ($15 used or $20 new). I also love the weaponry and controls.
Summary: Far Cry Instincts for the Xbox is a really fun shooter that has an insane single player game and an even better multiplayer experience. Throughout the single player game, you go through many different levels that all play extremely well. Unlike the PC game, this console version is very straight forward, usually with a go from A to B kind of feel.
