PARANOiA is still being judged by the masses


Default Aussies take note: Far Cry DVD $15 Australian !

Find it at http://www.umart.com.au/phtml/produc...bid=2&sid=8347 - Umart are Brisbane based, but ship nationally. What a steal!

Question is.. should I get it for that price, having never played it before? I feel my 9500pro may not cut the mustard.. plus I've already bought HL2.

Share the news, people. UDHA, I'm looking at you

Your 9500 will do fine. It's a GREAT game.

Holy crap, $15 dollars for Far Cry is an absolute steal. Get it while you can for that price, it's well worth $15.

Yeah it's worth $15, not much replay value, but it is well worth $15.

Not much replay value???

I've played through it multiple times, and i've found different paths to go about completing the level!

It's got LOTS of replay value

not if you can't bring yourself to play it again. some games may have multiple endings / paths, but most of those games don't draw me back in to do it again.

good point for those who don't know they were talking about AUS dollars...

but international shipping will be like 15-30 bucks american... so it doesn't seem to be such a good value.


not sure but its probably an oem bundled copy.

It is an Oem version if you follow the links on the site.
Therefore for $15, you won't be getting any boxes or manuals, just the DVD.

For those who don't have the game yet in OZ, this is still an excellent buy considering that it's an original copy.

Nice find indeed.

Had a friend pick me up a copy today.. will let you know.

Couldn't give a crap about a box and manual - is it worth a 500% increase in price over the OEM version? I doubt it.
