The game shipped yesterday, so I'd expect people to begin picking it up today. I was hoping someone could give me a quick mini-review. What I'm interested in most however, is the vertical sync. Every other Ubisoft title on the 360 has displayed some nasty screen tearing, as did FarCry on the PC with v-sync turned off. I have this game on pre-order, but I'm not sure I'm going to pick it up. The v-sync (or lack thereof) will be my decided factor.
Ditto this...I am in the same agreement with lowend...no v-sync, no buy.

I'm not familar with the screen tearing you guys are reffering to, but graphics aside, how's the overall gameplay?

I'm in Australia, picking it up tomorrow (tomorrow starts in 40 mins), the 30th.
Pre-ordered it and am looking foward to it. Loved the first one, the multiplayer was great fun and the map editor, wow, talk about replayability. The graphics were good for the box, but with the 360, i cant wait!
Including the original with predator is a great idea, really get 2 games in 1, which is awesome. My friends never got into the first one much, but i loved it. This is gonna be my GOTY (i've had the 360 for 6 days ), unless i get COD2, the demo rocked my socks!
I'll report back this time tomorrow with a bit of a review if anyones interested. And no, sorry, i have no idea about this vsync, dunno what it is
Far cry looks so good to me bcos pd0 didn't live up to my expectations, too try hard futurey and tacky.

Just incase anyone interested didn't know, the predator content is LOCKED on this disc until you beat the original insticts campaign.

And hamwbone, the reason this is called far cry 'instincts' predator, is cos its different to the PC version, completely different. Same engine, but completely new story. I havn't played the PC version, probably should cos my PC would support it, but it does have any of the feral abilities, or as i like to call it....Tyrannaprah! (when u get the 'evolutions boost', doesn't sound a fricken thing like the word predator)
But from the multiplayer, graphics were awesome. I actually got a kill in to a guy who played this game everyday in his lunch break! It was 7-1 after a 5 minute time limit, i did ok to get one though, considering his job.

I don't like Yahoo's quote though, because it's a bit of a disappointment to be in hi-def when the textures are the current gen, blurry crap.
Probably one of the more disappointing games/ports on the 360.
