Ranking the Far Cry Games from Best to Worst

9. Far Cry Instincts

The original Far Cry game left many people speechless upon its release in 2004. It’s stunning graphics and open-ended gameplay had no equal, so people were skeptical when Ubisoft announced Far Cry would be coming to the Xbox. The game traded the original’s freedom for linearity, but still offered a great experience.

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.
