    Black star had it for £17.99 too:)

    Yet to receive my copy have you got yours then?
    It's meant to be released on the 23 rd I think.

    nope, just played the demo, and unless it's radically different (although the indoor levels are supposed to suck a tad) it's wikid (and quite wikidly hard as well -- the enemy AI is excellent).

    regards,

    Yep, I noticed that too, but they do have Tom Clancys Splinter Cell - Pandora Tomorrow (PC) for £17.99, sounds good price to me
    :)

    Has anybody managed to receive their copy yet?

    Orderd on 1st April, but then received an email on the 5th saying that they were out of stock, as UbiSoft were trying to restrict their supply due to the cheap price :suicide:

    However they said they would have some more in stock by the end of last week, and update me as to whether my order could be shipped or not.

    But another week later still no news or response from them, even after I've sent them numerous emails :mad:

    I'm not pleased.

    They've also now removed the game from all listing on their website. :confused:

    What is going on?!

    I also got an email but saying they could not process my card. I rang them up and it is now shown as pending but on the site it says "Awaiting Stock" Looking more promising.

    Recieved my copy of Farcry from Dvd.co.uk today. The case was slightly damaged but the disc was perfect and at nearly half price I am not complaining. Time for some tropical fun now. :smashin:

    Well my copy came today but it was the CD version!!!

    Not really too happy, I was hoping for the DVD version, not 5 seperate discs :rolleyes:

    Did anybody else get the cd version or dvd version?

    Having the CD-ROM version does not really bother me anymore, it's just that before I got home to try it I thought the whole game was spread over the 5 seperate discs, meaning constant disc swapping - but the game runs off the 1st disc only so all is fine.

    I take it that their is no loss in quality or perfermance between the CD and DVD versions?! :nono:

    I'm not complaining anymore though! :eek:
    Spot on, running it on low though :laugh: as I'm back to my old Radeon9200 :rolleyes: Still looks alright though - I'm just in 2 minds whether to get a 9800pro now or wait for the inevitible price drop in a month or two.

    Cheers guys :smashin:
