Midway's 2005 FPS Area-51 has been released as a free ad-supported download. I have the PS2 version, the game is pretty good and worth a go. Especially since it's free now.

Midway has released for free Area 51, allowing you to enjoy the PC version of this sci-fi FPS developed by Inevitable Entertainment. Area 51 features the voice talent of David Duchovny as Specialist Ethan Cole of the Hazardous Materials Division, Powers Boothe as Major Bridges, and recording artist Marilyn Manson as Edgar, the gray alien. As Cole, players,will delve into massive levels within the confines of Area 51, discovering a deadly mutagenic side effect of the virus that controls the minds of those infected, as well as an ancient alien colony buried beneath the facility. With a multitude of human and alien weapons, players must explore chilling conspiracies such as the extraterrestrial crash at Roswell and the faked lunar landing, in order to solve the enigma of Area 51 before the viral mutagen is released and irrevocably mutates all life on Earth.

How exactly do these ad-supported downloads work? Are you forced to watch a commercial prior to installation? I assume it's not spy/malware or anything.

Far Cry can't be activated, so it won't work. Here's a link:

In-game advertising on billboards and such.

That's more what I figured, but I didn't want to assume anything. Will install later. :)

For 'The Suffering' it's an ad each time you launch the game, about 30 seconds. I don't know if this is the same.

The game wasn't too bad for a mindless time killing shooter. Just 'esc' past the cut scenes where duchovney(sp?) speaks..or you'll want to shoot yourself. :rolleyes:
