GamersGate.com: FarCry and FarCry 2 (PC) for 75% off
GamersGate is helping you get ready for the upcoming Far Cry3 by giving you some deep discounts on it's predecessors.
You can buy each game individually or get them both in a pack.
- Far Cry - Was $9.95 - Save $7.46 - Now $2.49
- Far Cry 2: Fortune Edition- Was $9.95 - Save $6.57 - Now $3.38
- Far Cry Complete Pack- Was $19.95 - Save $13.96 - Now $5.99
First thing I want to point out here is that it is actually cheaper to get the games individually. I can't see any benefits to getting the complete pack other than maybe you get both games in one download instead of two. I don't see that explicitly noted on the website so I don't really know for sure. Of course this is over the sake of 12 cents but if you save 12 cents on video games every week for a year, you'll have $6.24 and I'd rather have $6.24 than not have $6.24. Maybe that's just me.
Ok! Onward! Again, I don't know much about these games. I'm just not a huge FPS guy so I must defer to the professionals. Far Cry has an 89 on Metacritic and Far Cry 2 has an 85. I did notice that Far Cry 2 has quite a low user score of 56. It seems, from what I read, that this is more of a "not as good as the first" reaction as opposed to it being a legitimately bad game.
