Re: Far Cry instincts
Instincts is pretty much a totally different game. It's the same basic storyline (Jack is escorting the girl to the island, guys blow up his ship, yadda yadda) but aside from that they're not much alike. The levels are completely different, the combat system has been modified to include things like dual-weilding and stealth melee attacks, you can set traps up now, and the "feral abilities" add a whole new aspect to the game. The multiplayer was also completely redone. Unfortunately the new levels are a bit disapointing, they seem a lot more linear and less expansive than the originals, but that's the only major shortcoming I've noticed in the short time I've played it.
Basically, it's a different game based on the same setting.
