Xbox 360 Xbox

Enjoy this video showcasing the first levels of Far Cry Instincts. The graphics of the game are absolutely stunning, but in my humble opinion, bad AI and dull level design hurts it alot. An enjoyable FPS anyway, if you don't look too close at what it could have been.

Should that be AI, not IA?

Looks cool. Saving up for 360 though.

Stating opinion as fact in news blurbs - getting old really fast.

That's one nice engine there.
If Cryteam can do that on Xbox, I can't wait to see what they do for the 360.

Just a note, Cryteam didn't make this game, Ubisoft Montreal did.

And I can't wait to see what *they* can do with the 360 :)

yeah, but didn't Cryteam convert the engine for Xbox use?

It's amazing - the framerates, draw distances (even thought there's obvious LOD at work there), the lighting, the objects and foliage.

I didn't expect the Xbox version of the game to look that good.

Ok, I looked up the game on Gamespy, just for my own satisfaction.

It looks like Ubisoft Published it, and Ubisoft Montreal collaborated with Crytek to develop it.

Useless info I know.
But Crytek did make the original PC game, and developed the engine.

Oh btw, The Crytek engine is used to show off the up and coming Direct X Next (or Direct X 10). Go check it out, it's really neat stuff.
I think the video is on Microsoft's DirectX site.

Far cry is still one of the best and most revolutionary PC fps .
The xbox version is noticeably poorer as i could see But stil too good for xbox capabilities.
And i am sure that cryteam will make great things with xbox360.

PlumbDrumb:

I wasn't aware that Cryteam had anything to do with this port--Ubi Montreal is a pretty awsome developer and I wouldn't have been shocked to see them pull this one off on their own--but regardless..I'm in no way trying to talk down the previous developer..FC was a great game and their next gen engine does indeed look spectacular.

This all being said and done, I still can't wait to see what Ubi Montreal does on the 360 :)

I hear ya, I wasn't aware that Ubisoft had anything to do with this game.
So we both learned something.

Don't forget to check out the Direct X Next technology demo!
It features the first level from Farcry PC, and it's all super duper updated to make your mouth water. hehe.

The graphics are okay for the Xbox version, aside from it being very aliased (jaggies) and a very high contrast. Gameplay wise, I didn't really like it...it just had that "boring" feel to me...
