Welcome to Far Cry Classic, the HD remake of the original 2004 title Far Cry now developed by Ubisoft. The game features a 20-mission story while you play as the ex-Special Forces operator Jack Carver on a dangerous island littered with hostile mercenaries and beasts. Each mission can last from 10-30 mins, and ultimately the story will take about 10hrs to finish on the Normal difficulty.
There are four difficulty levels on the game all unlocked from the start; Easy, Normal, Hard & Realistic. You will want to start off on Easy and along the way try to get as many level specific miscellaneous achievements as possible, and by following the guide you will be able to get every achievement in the game except Carver Style single playthrough. The reason you should not start on Hard is because while chapter selecting levels through the "Load Game" screen, you cannot select your difficulty, and some miscellaneous achievements are simply not possible on hard.
There are 6 achievements for 55G tied to simply completing 6 certain missions in the story mode, these include Tutorial (1), Pier (4), Steam (8), Rebellion (11), Swamp (17) & Volcano (20).
At this point, you will have completed the game on Easy, and in case you have missed any level specific achievements then you can select a chapter and replay it in the "Load Game" menu, any chapter you start will automatically start set to the difficulty you started the game on, which is why it is highly recommended your first playthrough be on Easy. Below are the achievements tied to their respective levels in the story.
Mission 1 (Tutorial) - Uneven Terrain, "Hurt? Who Me"
Mission 3 - (Fort) - SpecOps Training
Mission 4 (Pier) - Flight Simulation, Oceanic Vista, Long Distance Correspondence
Mission 5 (Research) - Ninja jack
Mission 6 (Treehouse) - In the Zoo
Mission 7 (Bunker) - Bounding Experiences
Mission 16 (River) - Of Raven And Crows
Mission 17 (Swamp) - Hot Zone Date
Mission 19 (Dam) - Wildlife Safari
Mission 20 (Volcano) - Call Drops, Contained Evolution
At this point, you will only have one achievement left in the game, "Carver Style" which is to complete the game on either Hard or Realistic difficulty. Hard is recommended, with the major difference between the difficulties being that your health and armour will go down tremendously quicker compared to earlier difficulties, but the game is still not extremely difficulty on this difficulty. See achievement for more details and tips.
