Before anything else, let me clarify where this game is suppose to stand in the large Far Cry genealogical tree. So, this is Far Cry Instincts Evolution, the Xbox stand-alone add-on to Far Cry Instincts. You must not confuse it with Far Cry Instincts Predator, which is the Xbox 360 version of the game, featuring the original Instincts solo mode plus the brand new story provided by Far Cry Instincts Evolution. Yep, it's a dirty mess. Thank's to Ubi for the headache.
[IN MY OPINION]
As I'm feeling a bit lazy today, I'll make it quick. Forget about Instinct's boring story mode, Evolution is all about action, blood, and blowing-up big structures. The game is fast paced, featuring a large and opened map where you can choose your own path, and is actually quite fun to play. And to be honest, beginning the game with all the special powers in our hands is certainly a big plus. Fun is immediate, and if you like hard-boiled FPS with shiny graphics, you won't be disappointed.
Discover the ten (well, fifteen actually) first minutes of Far Cry Instincts Evolution, featuring: a rail-shooting sequence in a jeep, gunfights on beautiful beaches, a jet-ski rush, big explosions, a hide-and-seek party in a corn field, a lot of ridiculous screams and, last but not least, normal-mapped boobs. How about that !
yeah I would hope so. The fact it's $60 right now in this stage is rough though (44 minutes ago)
I'm assuming since it's 1st party there's a decent chance of it eventually becoming good. (54 minutes ago)
so I'm thinking I may wait to buy Sea of Thieves when it actually has good quest content. Game is REAL shallow (1 Hour ago)
like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (6 Hours ago)
you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (6 Hours ago)
@droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (6 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (6 Hours ago)
