I would advise buying Crysis or Far Cry 1 instead. Both are better games, and are designed for PC, as opposed to FC2 which is a console port.

You can find far cry 1 for that now, I'm sure.

I think Ubisoft released Farcry 1 for free provided you watched some ads before playing.

Yes, I believe they did. Same with Ghost Recon. it was only for a limited time afaik.

It's $9.99 for FC1 on Steam and GOG, but it's worth it compared to Far Cry 2. I hated FC2, but I loved FC1 and Crysis.

While it's no prize winner, I'd say $5 is a great price for the game.

I absolutely love this game, $5 is a steal.

If you were to get FC1 on steam you might as well wait for their holiday sale. Ubisoft (so far) has been a big fan of steam sales and i have no doubt it would be cheaper then.

Does anybody know what kind of DRM this uses? Am I limited to a number of installs? Or a number of concurrent installations? Or do I need to be online to play? Most importantly, can I download it any time and as many times as I want? There's so many factors with DRM nowadays.

Ditto! I've only ever used Steam to buy digital games. I'm not sure how Amazon works.

Glad to see people buying this. I would agree with what other said, its only 5 bucks and its not a bad game at all. It good very good ratings in alot of sites so I dont know why people complain about this.

I have far cry 2 and want to enjoy playing it, but the enemy respawn rates totally suck the enjoyment out of it.

as for installs, I know with other amazon games, you can install on multiple computers, don't know if ubi has a separate arrangement worked out.

Far cry 2 was a major let down for me. you spend most of your time traveling from one side of the map to the other. Hope you like driving because you will be doing a lot of it. can only pick up one mission at a time. weapon selection is limited. mod community is almost non-existant. a few bugs still (mostly AI and colission detec). the malaria... just a pain in the kumquat. Camo suit is a waste of money imho.

on the plus. it is a very pretty game. the little dune-buggy is fun to drive. at least it is bringing some attention to africa. if you are into "sniping" tactics, then you will do fine through most of the game. it's cheap (now). Game does last a while (see reasons why above).

for all of this. i would recomend it for the $5.

I thought this too until the idea of how devoid the game would be if the enemys DIDN'T respaw. sure you lay the same guard post to waste one-hundred times over but at least it's something to do while you are out driving.

Man, what a disappointing selection. If I may be so cynical, November and early-December had better offerings than the "deals" available now.

I bit, Far Cry 2 isn't the greatest game ever but I had some fun with the 360 version awhile back. Definitely worth $5 to me.

Amazon is the most annoying digital download platform. Both their unbox and game digital platforms have to load from memory at the start of windows or you can't run the programs.

Just a FYI.

Me, too. It kills me that this is $5 now (and has been before) when I dropped $50 for it the day it came out and rapidly got bored of driving all the hell over the map, watching the GPS for diamonds, etc. The level editor was sheer genius and should've spawn a rich online community, but noooooooooooooooooooo!!!

Would it be possible for the nimrods who can't stop sneering, "It's a console port," at every game which has the misfortune of being released on both consoles and PC to shut the fucking Fuck up?!?!??:bomb: I swear, there are few things stupider that I have to read on teh Intarwebz than this specious drivel. No matter how customizable the controls are; no matter how much higher resolution the graphics are or faster the load times; no matter whether it can be modded or not; any time a game launches on console and PC, the morons are out in force bitching that whatever game it is is somehow defective because it exists on consoles, too. Was Fallout 3 "just a port"? How about The Orange Box? Hmmmm?

While there have been some bad examples of lazy publishers porting the PS2 version of games (when there were PS3/X360 versions with better visuals) and some games are so half-assed on the PC - I'm looking at you FEAR 2: Project Origin and your inability to bind mouse side buttons and generally stupid key layout - that it almost lends credibility to the whiners complaints; automatically dismissing the PC version of a multi-platform game as "just a port" is a sign that the poster is more interested in being dismissive than intelligent.

Firstly, :applause:...This game is actually one of the prettier games from 2008 for PC and I found it fun and open-ended, so I don't get that sentiment either, and I can't stand that sort of mentality about games in general, that "Meh, elitest yadda yadda, I only play 7% of games that are released" when a game that 4 out of 5 people enjoyed, sometimes that one person isn't criticizing it for taste, but for what they deem quality. I'm the other way around. I don't like turn based games, but like hell I'm not gonna slap a "shitty" label on KOTOR because it's partially turn based. I will give credit where due, and say a game's not my style (I like fully real time only I've learned)....So, just adding to your rant I guess, and I know I'm cynical in other areas of life, so I'm far from perfect...

Secondly, I played and beat the first Far Cry 3 times on multiple computers ever since 2005, I love that game. I see this as having little to do with it because of the play style, and while it's not as good for its time, $5 is worth it.

I just don't have the Fortunes pack, and I'm not sure what the hell's in that, or if it's worth it. Amazon's page had nothing on it (just looked) and reading on the web will tell me what it is, but asking gamers I trust if it's worth it is better, so... But really, for $5, can you really be ripped off much?

Far Cry 2 might be worth $5 but even that might be a stretch. This game was annoyingly bad.

Fortune's pack is basically:

4 multiplayer maps
a few new weapons
a few new cars/trucks.
