5 out of 5 eggsI enjoyed this game

Pros: This is a fun game to play. Nice graphics. I'm an old guy and it is simple enough for me to understand and play. Worked find on Win XP system. It was rewarding to complete. Will be fun to play again. Multiple approaches to solving many of the challenges in the game. Fun to drive vehicles.

Cons: Even at easiest levels, some sections of the game can be very difficult to successfully complete. Couldn't get it to work on my Win 7 system.

Other Thoughts: I don't play many 1st person shooters. I like Oblivion and Skyrim. Recently played Halo 1 for the first time and thought I would try this game based on good reviews. I liked it better than Halo 1 -- though both were fun. More variety in FarCry1. I am happy with my purchase

5 out of 5 eggsYou gotta love this game.

Pros: If you like 1st person shooters this is one game that won't let you down.It has many levels and also you can increase the difficulty of play.When you finish this game you feel like you have accomplished something in gaming.

Cons: This version won't install from the CDs onto a 64 bit Windows O/S system.

Other Thoughts: My 32 bit Windows system's hard drive started to go bad so I copied the game to an 8 GB flash drive and installed it on my new 64 bit Windows gaming laptop and it runs perfectly.Make sure you copy the "application".

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work, cannot work.

Pros: There aren't any. How are they selling this? Other reviews must be made by people that love FarCry, not people that bought this.

Cons: It will not run on a 64bit system, and cannot. There is no installer on the disk. I will be returning it, and I bet it will be a hassle to do so because it's software. But it does not run and can not run. It will not install. So no Windows 7, so no Vista, and no XP 64. So uh, no computers unless they're 10 years old. Why don't they just put an Atari game with the same name as a PC game on a CD? You can make $5 every time somebody buys the worthless CD.

Other Thoughts: Newegg, stop selling this.

5 out of 5 eggsFar Cry Windows 64bit Solution!!!

Pros: Alright, here's the two ways you can get Far Cry working on Windows Vista/7 64bit:

1. Get the GOG (Good Old Games) download version. It will have its own installer which worked perfectly fine on my Windows 7 64bit. Plus, it will install version 1.4 so there will be no need to apply patches. After you install it just download the "farcry_amd64upgrade" and run it. Congrats, you now have both 32bit and 64bit versions of Far Cry installed and working. Enjoy.

2. Like I mentioned in my previous review, the other workaround is to install the game on a 32bit version of Windows and then manually copy all the game files over to your 64bit Windows.

I hope this helps everyone!

Cons: Wish it wasn't this difficult.

Other Thoughts: I found this out when I was trying to get realMyst to run on my Windows 7 64bit. I had to get the GOG version of it to finally get it to go. GOG seems to have a lot of old games patched to work on a 64bit OS.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my last review

Pros: It's not Encore's fault.

Cons: It's not just Encore or this DVD version, it seems some of the CD versions are having the exact same issue. The only known workaround is to install the game on a 32bit OS and then copy the entire game folder over to your 64bit rig. Then you can patch the game with the 64bit patch and you should be good to go.

1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT buy this if using a 64bit OS!!!

Pros: Having it on DVD would save time from installing from multiple cds.

I guess it works fine on a 32bit OS.

Cons: I thought I might be able to force it to install even after reading countless other reviews about it not wanting to go on a 64bit OS. It will not install. I click the setup32.exe and a message pops up which reads "Run setup32.exe on 32 bit Windows, or run setup64.exe on 64 bit Windows!" Well, gee there is no "setup64.exe" anywhere on the DVD. If you search about this problem online there's numerous threads that span from 2005 to now and nobody has gotten theirs to go. So I can't tell if Encore just forgot to include the setup64.exe or if they forgot to remove the reference from their installer. Either way, again, there is no way to install it and no other exe found on the DVD.

So your only option is to get a hold of another copy of Far Cry (original CD set or maybe even try Ubisoft's online store and not this DVD version by Encore), install said copy and then you can use the Multiplayer ID found packaged with the DVD version.

Other Thoughts: This isn't exactly a new problem, this has been known about for years from what I've read online. Newegg should really discontinue selling this due to this having a broken installer.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
