Yeah I think this game will be awesome. I mean, the graphics, the physics, the shooting gameplay, and just darn near about everything excited me about this game. Anybody else feel the same way?

Agreed, all that sci-fi junk in the original really ruined the game for me.

Yeah, I am totally freaking excited about this game. Its the one I look forward to the most, this and Fable 2. I just ordered a ATI Radeon HD 4870 512mb GDDR5! Can't wait, outperforming the 260 gtx and its really close to the 280 gtx.

First thing I'm doing is: Burn some damn grass!!! ;)

Honestly i think it's going to be riddled with bugs, have poor performance and have lackluster story and side missions.

Never fnished the first one (barely got to the Sci-fi part) but I'm really excited for the second one.  The change of setting could bring some freshness to fps

It looks awesome, judging from the trailers. I'm definitely going to be buying this

It looks amazing, i'm just afraid i may get lost in Africa.  Seems like they've packed this to the brim with content.

Yeah the game most certainly looks awesome.
Though the game had me when they pulled the flamethrower out in the walkthrough and started a fire.

It looks it could be really generic and stodgy, but graphically it looks beautiful and it could be a really fun shooter. So yeah I'm pretty excited to play it; probably won't get it at launch though.

I am amazed at how it's turning out on Xbox 360 and PS3 so far.  The game started as a high end pushing PC game but they've gotten all the features and seemingly most of the assets to work on the consoles flawlessly.  In videos I've seen the game looks really amazing.

Now, if the game lives up to the PR about the AI and big open mostly non-linear gameplay, it will be a truly awesome game.

It looks really nice, but I'm not too sure how excited I can be about yet another FPS.

I'm really interested in the open ended story telling. Like how there's a start point, and a goal to reach, but how you get there can be accomplished in dozens of ways. It sounds really cool.

I don't know man. I liked Far Cry at first, but eventually it felt more like a glorified tech demo like Crysis did. I'll probably check it out once it is released, but I'm worried that it'll be just another shooter that improves the genre only on the technical side.

I'm actually really excited about the story side from what I've seen and heard so far and that's the aspect that has got me thinking that I might buy this game.  The immersiveness of a game is always the most key thing  for me and to have the story responding to my actions which are based in a real open game world in which I doing things as I want should be really great.  Also I love how you can make 'buddies' with the other freelancers you could have played as and how they can help you out if you're in trouble and actually die permanently as well.

The game certainly has potential, but Crytek games have always been hit or miss IMO. I hope the game delivers on the level that many think it can, but I am still skeptical.

Im kind of hesitant about it, Im worried the game will not have enough structure. I don't like games where I have to make my own fun.

This was probably the most visually impressive game at E3. I am not a PC gamer, but I am definitely looking forward to it on 360.

My jaw dropped when I saw wind-blown fire climb up a tree and crawl towards an enemy camp. Far Cry 2 looks to be on the money.
Really... did anyone else see this happen in a video? Maybe an E3 demo? It was damn cool looking.

I'm hyped! I especially enjoy the part in the trailer where he shoots the guard in the leg and then wait for the other to pick him up... and then BLAM

I am really looking forward to this game. Especially after I saw the Stage Demo at E3. I really thought this game looks unique, fresh, crisp, and fast paced.

This is going to be the most ambitious shooter  ever.   Huge, open world.  Challenging A.I.   Amazing physics and day and night cycles.    Beautiful graphics, a ton of gameplay and multiplayer being included.  Oh, and don't forget the  awesome map editor!   what more could you ask for?     I know it's going to be amazing.    A definite day one purchase for me.

I just hope the AI works right. Usually, when someone promises ground-breaking AI, its sloppy and doens't accomplish everything that was intended. This game is dependent on it's complex AI to work properly, and I hope it does live up to expectation.

I'm eager to see it in motion personaly when it comes out.
