Just got a chance to watch the new gameplay trailer (http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=7388&type=mov) of Far Cry: Instincts for the original Xbox. Gotta say, Ubisoft Montreal and Crytek Studios did an amazing job devloping this version of the game with the original Xbox's meager specs in mind. If you haven't already, check out the screenshots HERE (http://screenshots.teamxbox.com/gallery/869/Far-Cry-Instincts/p1/). :eek:

Not bad. I thought the water looked a little crappy till I saw some of the other pics :)

Impressive for an XBOX title, almost as impressive as Riddick.

Doesn't look half bad.. when I saw it a few years ago at E3 it looked absolutely terrible, looks alot better here.

It's a shame they spent their time on this and not an expansion pack for PC. I mean even Doom3 had an ex-pack, what gives?

That game looks nicer on the X-box than it does on my computer... at least quality and framerate wise... =(

Some FPS games are awsome on console, Why the hell does someone always bring up this argument. There are great console only FPS games, if you can't play with the controller then oh well... but the people who can and don't mind it don't want to hear the constant bitching about it.

I will rent the game but I dout I will buy it, Just never really liked FarCry in the first place.

(Sorry for the mini rant)

I've been keeping an eye on this one since they started releasing trailers for it. I must say, it looks quite impressive for an Xbox game, it seems they've managed to fit in almost all the major effects that were in the PC version. The new gameplay features sound pretty cool, it'll be fun having all those super abilities that the Trigens had (plus it helps close up that story gap of "why can my supposedly-normal guy take on a whole army of mercenaries and super-soldiers all by himself" ;)). Multiplayer should be a lot more popular on the Xbox version as well, since they probably fixed up the netcode a bit and made the modes quite a bit more interesting (especially with those feral abilities thrown into th emix), plus it'll be one of the few games on the console with a map editor (http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=6918&type=wmv).

Oh, and you can see the rest of the trailers for the game here (http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=421). The Predator one especially shows off quite a few of the new features.

At least 8 million people, going from sales numbers.

Buy yourself a Max Shooter (http://hardware.teamxbox.com/articles/xbox/1241/Max-Shooter-Review/p1/) and let the Live owning ensue.

gameplay looks much better than the original farcry..much more fast paced and less clunky..
This is way better than what the pc version is as far as fun factor..
graphically it's amazing for directx 8 tech

I have the Xbox demo of it. Two different locations. It's a pretty long demo too. Game is going to be pretty good on Xbox. We don't need PC gamers coming in here telling use the Xbox version sucks compared to the PC version. I have a PC more than capabable to play Far Cry. I will also play the Xbox version. It's not the same game.
They did a pretty good job considering the hardware it has to run on.
Newest Xbox mag comes with 8 playable demos. Not too bad.

Off topic but is there a expansion pack coming out for the pc.

jeez
that does look really damn good

It's almost a shame that we're saying good-bye to the xbox soon. Such a venerable system, moreso than anyone thought.

Looking at it more, seems some of the shine from enemies sweating is gone, and the shadow casting on the gun/player models is gone too.

Otherwise, wow, the xbox really had some balls to it.

[edit]

scratch that, it's all there, amazing

Yes, I believe they will release an expasion pack! :) But I think it's still in its early stages... but don't quote me on that!

I've had the demo a few days now, and the bastards added freaking invisible walls! What the hell! Why? Why!! There weren't random invisible walls in the middle of the forest in the last game! They've blocked off paths where you can't swim in the ocean, it's retarded.

Stuff like that pisses me off. There are giant invisible walls around some plants randomly in the forest. It makes no sense whatsoever. The game overall feels alot more clunky than its (already moderately clunky control wise) pc cousin.

I'm definitely not buying it for xbox.

I played abit of it yesterday and it was pretty fund. I actually like the game better then the PC version, sure the graphics don't compare but the gameplay changes are really nice.
