Well make sure you put that right by firing over to the Xbox Games Store and picking up Far Cry Classic on Xbox 360. It’s available for download right now.

A revamp of the very first Far Cry game, Classic sees you taking on the role of Jack Carver, a boat captain who suddenly finds himself being hunted by a team of mercenaries. Featuring realistic foliage, real-time day and night cycles and underwater and airborne vehicles galore, Far Cry Classic sees you going back to the series roots.

So forget the dragons, forget the drug induced proceedings of 3 and forget 2 because well, it was pretty forgettable really. Instead go right back to the beginning and play the game that spawned a whole damn series and then some.

Or of course, you could wait a week and pick up Far Cry The Wild Expedition and check all the games out!
