Best in serries

After playing FC2, and and both xbox versions of Far Cry (and wii, shamfully), I will say none of them stack up to the original PC experience. I would still play this game over FC2 if I had a gaming rig anymore. Loved this game.

So, you like to post in irrelevant threads? That is two things I know about you.

I started this thread in the Far Cry wiki for people who visit that page and want to talk about the game have an open door. Its not my fault that GB posts all recent topics out in the open. Stop being a pretentious dick! Just because you like Yahtzee doesnt mean you have to act like him. Unless you are him, then never mind.

WRONG! I like to point out irrelevant threads, thank you very much!"
This thread relevant to the Far Cry game page, where it was posted. If you dont understand how this site works, maybe you should go somewhere else.

Yes, the mutants were an odd choice of enemies, especially when taking on the merc armies was fun enough. Also the level design was amazing.

Each game page has its own forum section, which is where I posted. Where is a mod? Snail jacked a perfectly acceptable thread.

Whats wrong with you? Go to any game page, and look at how there is a forum specific to each one. So, if some one wants to talk about a specific game, there is a way to open up a discussion. Thats why they exist.

Thread ruined, thanks Snail!

I like Far Cry 2 best. Far Cry was alright, but it had a plain-out shitty story and the mutants/predator powers were overrated.

Far Cry PC right? I wish the console version of Far Cry one never existed, although the level editor was nice, since unlike FC2 it had local split screen mp. I felt like I could sneak around a lot better in FC1 than I can in FC2. Like coming up to a merc camp, I could swing around the side, and toss some stones to lure a guard into the jungle, then get the silent machette kill. In FC2, it seems like no matter how quiet I try to be, it always draws the other guards attention.

I thought the first FC was extremely mediocre, FC2 was way better imo.

Yeah, Far Cry PC. I never played much console until I got my 360.

The guards almost always know when their friend goes down, but I find it's much easier just to throw a molotov to distract some, and headshot the others before they can relay where any attacker might be. That's my variation of stealth in the game. Unconventional, but it works.

Uh, ya know? Far Cry on the PC is a great game, but to me it's only great when it comes to the feel of shooting guys, and the fact it originated Far Cry. To me personally though, I like Instincts a lot more. Jack Carver was a cooler character, the voice acting was much better, Jacutan was a better island, and just about everything else was better. The only thing I like a bit better in the PC version is the feel of killing guys. I don't know if you've played Far Cry on PC recently, but if you do, and you think it's as great as it was, you've got a serious problem. I think Instincts holds up very well, other than the crappy sensitivity. Anyways, Far Cry 3, yay.
