farcry It looks like ad-supported games could be the new way for developers to prevent older games from becoming extinct. Well, at least that’s the route that Ubisoft is taking on four of their popular computer games.

I’ve posted the download links for Far Cry, Ghost Recon, Prince of Persia, and Rayman Raving Rabbids below. Most of them are pretty big downloads (1GB+) so you may want to get them overnight.

From what I’ve been reading the in-game advertising isn’t too noticeable in these particular games, and I wonder how successful they will actually be. We’ve analyzed this type of advertising before, and despite some downfalls it might have I hope more and more companies will be bringing their classic games out of the vault. After all, Rockstar did it with Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2 earlier this year.

If you’ve got some extra bandwidth to burn head on over and download these great games (Ghost Recon seems to be working now and then):

Download Far Cry
Download Ghost Recon
Download Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Download Rayman Raving Rabbids
