9. Far Cry Instincts
Hero Jack Carver returned here to fight a villain who had shades of Dr. Moreau in him. The evil Dr. Krieger was creating human and animal hybrids on the lush tropical islands where the game is set. The game goes from violent shootouts under the sun to tense action set pieces in laboratories against all manner of freakish creatures. Carver’s new “feral abilities” (which grant him inhuman strength and speed amongst other things), sure came in handy here.
Far Cry Instincts was great for its time, but looks very dated by today’s standards. Thankfully it got something of a makeover when Ubisoft released Far Cry Instincts Predator for the Xbox 360 console in 2006.
