Yes.. also I enjoyed "driving around" in FC2, if driving around includes having my driving interrupted every 3 minutes by some random fucker in a jeep who stormed off after he had a fight with his wife and swore to kill the first driver he runs into

Far Cry 2 was an awesome experience. I hope they fix the issues with that game and flesh out the universe a bit more, and we could have an awesome experience on our hands.

Will the main character have diabetes this time around?

I'm no fan of Far Cry 2. But if they get back to exotic - and welcoming - locales (the jungle islands of the first one? Great. The sarenghetti? Eff that), and the predator powers introduced in the Far Cry Instincts sequels, than I'm all for FC3. We don't need anymore "realistic" damn FPSs Ubi Soft. Especially from you guys - you have Rainbow Six for that sh**. Jeez. Concentrate on making Far Cry your fun FPS franchise.

Despite it's problems I liked Far Cry 2. So if they can fix some of those problems I am all for a 3rd one.

I really didn't like Far Cry 2, so if this game is more of me driving everywhere and then shooting dudes, I will have to tune out.

Far Cry 2 was amazing. I'd love to play another installment.

I loved Far Cry 2 regardless of its flaws concerning plot and mission structures. Blowing up a gas canister and just seeing the aftermath of the fire swallowing up the train yard was one of the most memorable unscripted moments in the game.

I'll be down for the same writers as Far Cry 2. Bash everything else about the game but it nailed that tone of third world strife and gray and gray mortality.

I hope they make another one, the engine is very powerful

Hope it doesn't fucking suck like 2.

Far Cry 2 is an awesome game and I still play it to this day. It feels like an old school game only with great graphics and amazing fire effects. It has a slow and methodical pacing which is lacking in many FPS games these days which just try to mimick the shitty COD formula of blasting through the level and not taking in the environment or thinking of what you're doing. I also liked the challenge of the game and am laughing at the people in the comments complaining about dieing a lot. There is an easy mode you know, and if you die on that mode it's damn right pathetic.


Bring on Far Cry 3!

(also, FAR CRY 1 = SHIT)

Hopefully the cars in the next installment drive faster than 40mph.

I didnt mind farcry 2 some aspects of it were anoying but i liked the open world style of game . But they need to work on faction systems so that not eveyione in the world attacks you at all times of the game , that got annoying fast

#68 Posted by Kraznor (1578 posts) -

I found Far Cry 2 to be amazing in a lot of ways so I'm hoping they continue in that vein. YES, it had problems but there were so many things I respect about that game (its uncompromising commitment to immersing you in that world which meant driving for long distances to get anywhere, the most intense firefights I've ever experienced in a game, really amazing ambient audio and absurdly large environments) that I hope they don't abandon all of that in favor of copying the recent trends in shooters and making some kind of COD-clone.

Looking forward to Idle Thumbs revival just for the Far Cry 3 release.

Far Cry 2 was fine, but I still think they need to follow Jack Carver for the story.

#71 Posted by scarace360 (4828 posts) -

Loved far cry 2 never finished it.

#72 Posted by blaakmawf (543 posts) -

2 had some stealth consistency issues, but it was otherwise really cool. I'd be interested in another.

#73 Posted by hoossy (932 posts) -

Well... if they throw everyone away that had to do with Far Cry 2, and start over... It could be really great!  ;D


Seriously though, besides the well crafted environment and a few interesting game mechanics, that last game got old REALLY fast...

Don't you mean - Far werippedoffSTALKER Cry 3?

#75 Posted by YukoAsho (2001 posts) -

I loved FC2.  Had some issues here and there, but it proved you can make compelling, open FPS gameplay work on both PC and console, something I'm sad to see Crytek didn't even try with Crysis 2.  I'd love another jungle romp with Ubisoft Montreal.

Not a huge fan of this trend of running "stories" based on online resumes without so much as a "no comment" from the publisher, but I guess that's video game journalism.

I'm amazed so many people liked, or even loved Far Cry 2 - more than any game I've played in the past few years, I was incredibly disappointed by it.


 I've played lots of not great games that I slogged through in spite of myself, but Far Cry 2 made so many strange decisions that I couldn't get past - http://permanent-hiatus.blogspot.com/2008/12/3-reasons-why-far-cry-2-sucks-trouble.html

Far Cry 2 has a really great atmosphere that Crysis can't match.

I'd love them to play a bit with the settings next time.
Africa in the end, turned out pretty similar to the tropical island, despite the "skin" of an inland hot continent.

The guy who made the box art probably isn't aware that the game probably won't come out in a box

#81 Posted by Arabes (338 posts) -

Far Cry 2 was popular? I honestly didn't  think it had done well. I thought it was really weak. The AI was retarded (the guys in the cars who just drove straight at you continuously) and the ability of guys to shoot you at almost any range at any distance (even if you were hiding in the grass) was annoying but the aforementioned stupid AI meant that even with this the guys were a walk over. The silenced guns? What was up with them, they didn't work, shoot a guy in an alley way in town with a silenced pistol and the alarms still went off. All the sides were generic too, it had so much potential thaty they just didn't fulfill. The outdoor ares looked awesome and exploring was fun but everyting else was just weak.

On screen mini-map and ready for FC3. 

I still have nightmares about pulling that magic-map out every 5 seconds to see where to go.
