Far Cry 3 Exists, if These Resumes Are to be Believed
" I really enjoyed driving around in Farcry 2 "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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
