Doesn't work, cannot work.


Newegg, stop selling this.

There aren't any. How are they selling this? Other reviews must be made by people that love FarCry, not people that bought this

It will not run on a 64bit system, and cannot. There is no installer on the disk. I will be returning it, and I bet it will be a hassle to do so because it's software. But it does not run and can not run. It will not install. So no Windows 7, so no...

Far Cry Windows 64bit Solution!!!


I found this out when I was trying to get realMyst to run on my Windows 7 64bit. I had to get the GOG version of it to finally get it to go. GOG seems to have a lot of old games patched to work on a 64bit OS.

Alright, here's the two ways you can get Far Cry working on Windows Vista/7 64bit ; 1. Get the GOG (Good Old Games) download version. It will have its own installer which worked perfectly fine on my Windows 7 64bit. Plus, it will install version 1.4 so...

Wish it wasn't this difficult

Update to my last review


It's not Encore's fault

It's not just Encore or this DVD version, it seems some of the CD versions are having the exact same issue. The only known workaround is to install the game on a 32bit OS and then copy the entire game folder over to your 64bit rig. Then you can patch...

Do NOT buy this if using a 64bit OS!!!


This isn't exactly a new problem, this has been known about for years from what I've read online. Newegg should really discontinue selling this due to this having a broken installer. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

Having it on DVD would save time from installing from multiple cds ; I guess it works fine on a 32bit OS

I thought I might be able to force it to install even after reading countless other reviews about it not wanting to go on a 64bit OS. It will not install. I click the setup32.exe and a message pops up which reads "Run setup32.exe on 32 bit Windows, or...

FAR CRY 2 sucked very much bad

Runs fine on my 64-bit OS


In order to get it to run in Wine, I had to first install it in Windows and then copy the installation directory c:/Program Files/Ubisoft to my .wine directory. I'm running Wine v1.3.x and openSUSE 11.2.

Okay, my review title is a little misleading, but this 32-bit game runs just fine on my 64-bit Linux machine (using WINE). I'm guessing that all of the people who say that it doesn't run on 64-bit OS's mean 64-bit Windows. Maybe that's true, I wouldn't...

The pre-rendered cut-scenes are done at 4:3, so on a 16:9 monitor, everybody looks really fat and ridiculous. In one scene, Jack is carrying Val and he looked to be incredibly strong being able to hold her ; One of my automatic guns every now and then...

I will not be buying anything published by Encore again.

The game is great. This release however is not

As another reviewer said in order to play on 64 bit you need to find one of the original 5CD sets. This is supposed to have a 64bit installer on the disk but there is none. Only a 32bit installer which refuses to run. (it says please run the 64 bit...

No go on x64


If you wanna play Far Cry on a 64 bit os, you need to find the original 5 cd set. This one that comes as a single dvd DOES NOT have the 64 bit installer.

Download and install the patches sequentially up thru 1.33 for single player mode. Install the 1.4 patch ONLY for multi-player as it can cause problems with single player. Have Fun!

Excellent FPS game. Low system requirements ; Graphics still look very nice for an older title ; Lots of mods, maps Etc. available online ; Editor actually makes some sense and is fun to ; play with. Game is easily tweaked to your liking ; by modifying...

I can't really think of any ; Others have mentioned problems with 64 bit ; operating systems though

No prob. still love it


Runs fine on win7 64 bit, windows vista 64, xp64, or any 32 bit os. You just need to read up at the update site before you go to far, and have to reinstall. lol!

Great game. great story ; Better then the far cry 2 by far ; Runs on any windows operating system. you just cant install any updates past 3.1

A little outdated, but still a crytek masterpiece
