Is there a way to download Ubisoft games with just the Cd Key?

    I have a copy of Far Cry that I have not installed on my computer. Because the four discs are in paper disc envelopes (I got it for free a while ago when I bought my videocard), one of the discs got a bad scratch on it. Now the game will not install. I still have the cd key, so if there is a way to download it without the cd, then that would be really helpful. Thanks.

    But replacement cd's cost $10. I think that is the same price as the game costs new.

    there, as far as i know, is no other legal method other than replacement discs.

    maybe they sell the game as a digital download now, try contacting them to see if u can get a digital download copy?

    what game is it?

    Try getting a DVD/CD cleaning kit.
    CD's/DVD's have a protective plastic layer and thats what gets scratched. The Scratches mess up the laser so that it reflects in the wrong direction. By using a cleaning kit you will actually fill the scratch and make the laser reflect properly.
    They usually cost $10-15 (CAD), but you can use them for like 40 CD's. Worth having around IMO.
