Too bad it was jewel case version. I scored it for $10.64 (including tax) @ Wal-Mart. I got home and ripped the clear plastic lining off, and HOLY COW!! 5 CDs!! I'm gonna have a fun time installing. <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> I wont be able to play it till tomorrow when my dads at work. He's such a compy hog!! <img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
I'll update when I have it installed, and I actually play it.

I hate the whole 5 cd deal...I wish it was on DVD lol.<br />
<br />
But, it's a sweet game...especially when you consider it's like...2 years old?

Wierd, I recieved the game as a free gift when I ordered some memory and it's all on one disc. Also, I didn't much like the game at all but must people do so have fun.

Mine is on CD aswell. I got it for like $10 at walmart almost a year ago. The reason it's on CD is because its old stock that they're selling off. The DVD version probably isnt so cheap at retail stores, online is a different story.<br />
<br />
As a side note, I've never played the SP game and I wasnt impressed at all with the MP side of the game either. It does look very good for its age though!

</div>You should try it <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />, the Campaign is great, the graphics are great, and HDR looks nice. It definitely had the best graphics compared to other games at time of release.

I havent really tried multiplayer on it yet, but I really like single player mode. It fun and challenging, and I love shooting hogs and running into them with my vehicle. <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> And the gfx are good, even though it's an older game <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

FarCry is still a great benchmark to test your system by. It offers HDR (at the same time as AA for you ATI guys) and the textures look great. Its been a test bed for 64-bit gaming with the AMD64 patch that came out for it (and theres another patch to let 32-bit OSs use the 64-bit patch). <br />
<br />
Overall it has aged very well and has compelling gameplay. It can get a little difficult at times (especially when enemies get body armor and the one level where your dumped in the jungle w/o a gun....). But on the whole, its an amazing game, and really tided people over before Doom3 and HL2 came out (yes, its that old). <br />
<br />
Although the MP is rubbish, I believe its definitely a greatest hits if you ask me. Nice purchase man!

</div>I didn't buy it online, I went to that store. Here in the Netherlands almost every city has a "Bart Smit". It's kinda like what Wal-mart is for you guys, but instead it has cheap games for xbox/pc/ps2 and other "toys".

Sadly... I dont have a 64-bit CPU and 3dMark05 totally killed my CPU. So... yeah.
