Has anyone here played any of the Far Cry console games that came between 1 and 2? I completely forgot they even existed before they mentioned it on the stream. It's weird to think there is pretty much a separate franchise within this series.
Have you played any of the other FarCry games.
I've played and still own Instincts Predator on the 360. Given that it was the first game I got for the 360 I thought it was pretty cool at the time. Not sure how much it holds up now but I liked it a lot when I played it back then. The feral powers were a lot of fun to use.
Yeah Far Cry 1 was one of my first pc games, I was terrible at it and just got bored and never put more than a few hours into it(got it for 5 bucks so not a huge deal to me). Played Far Cry 2 a ton on both PS3 then later PC, world was boring as hell but with a podcast in the background the game was a good time waster.
Played the xbox version of the first game and dabbled in the 360 version of the second one.
I downloaded Far Cry 2 when it was free on PS+ but I haven't played it.
Make sure to have a second controller because controller breakage during gameplay may occur.
I have played Far Cry Instincts and the 360 version of that. Strangely enough, the aiming on the 360 version felt way off, but it was perfect on the Xbox version so if you could get a hold of that version I'd recommend it.
And yes, it's a good game. Not a great one, and certainly one that will be soon forgotten by history, but if you just want to play a good, challenging, cheap shooter, then it's pretty good.
I've played them all except Predator on 360. Enjoyed Far Cry 2 the most once I figured out how to not suck at it, otherwise known as "always driving a vehicle with a big gun mounted on it". I really, really want FC3 but I'll probably have to wait until after Christmas.
