Immediately attacked by mercenaries, Jack fights for his survival while being guided by a scientist on the island named Doyle. His attempts to find the reporter Val are met with serious resistance, and Jack finds himself in the middle of a massive battle between the mercenaries and the experiments being created on the island- mutated primates and humans.

    The console versions of Far Cry are similar, but also have Jack being infected with the mutagen, and subsequently gaining new animal-like abilities, such as super-speed, strength and agility. In the original PC version of the game, Jack is infected, but it doesn't affect gameplay, merely his appearance, and the last levels become a race to find an antidote before he succumbs completely to the mutagen.
