What happened to this game?

Seriously, I just got this game expecting Far Cry in Africa. Instead what I get is a generic shooter in a world pretending to be open-ended (like ODST did, but even worse.)

Whats the special niche in this game? The first one you're infected with some kind of concoction that gives you feral abilities like following the enemies smell, super speed, and the deadly lunge attack. This game you suffer from Malaria... Is that supposed to be an improvement?

The first game gave you military humvees, four-wheelers, and hang-gliders. Most of the vehicles I've seen in Far Cry 2 so far have been crappy ass civilian vehicles.

The First game gave you the ability to lay prone, set traps on the trees, crawl on your back beneath the shacks, and put you in a beautiful Island setting. Far Cry 2 you're in a war-stricken wasteland where everything looks like crap and you lost most of the features from the first game.

Plus the missions require you to cross over 2 hours of terrain with nothing fun in-between and navigation just sucks in the game.

Seriously, what did Crytek actually think would make this game better than it's predecessor?

It's a confusing game, It's like going through Vietnam during the war. Just look up guides for everything, take buses, boost the online and you'll be done in no time. And be patient.

yeah thats what im thinking. this game isnt even a fraction of what the earlier games where. i played the first couple games and had a great time using the powers and military stuff. this game however is horrible! i mean how can you be in the development team and even think that this game even stands beside the others? there is hardly any similarities in the game, it seems like they wanted to start a new "more real" series of games and are using the Farcry name to just get people who played the originals to buy it. i think an appropraite name would be: "Driving endlessly in africa while guys in jeeps chase you"

Crytek had nothing to do with this game. They sold the rights of fc serie to Ubisoft, and focused on Crysis.

My thoughts almost exactly... It's why I have not even touched the game.

You know, I read all the reviews for FC2 and it put me off playing it. I bought the Warchest Limited Edition when it came out for 50, and was gutted it was dubbed as such a terrible game. I decided to endure it this week, and sat down and made a start, one of my friends was pushing to boost the online achievements, which motivated me to play, and I can honestly say I don't understand where you guys are coming from?? I love this game, yes it has it's faults, but I am almost done in the North region now, and am loving it to bits. Sure it's not Far Cry 1, but it is a good effort. Ubisoft did a great job, the only bad things I can find is the Warlord achievement takes the biscuit for biggest grind ever lol.

I never played FC1 but I can say that FC2 is THE BEST SHOOTER EVER! I don't like the "hallway levels" of Modern Warfare 2 or the "jump-syndrome" of Halo games. FC2 wins for me...

One reason I got my 360, was to play Far Cry 1. I thought it'd be like the PC version and it was, sort of. But FC2 was tons better than FC1, in my book. A completely different local than most games and it's a keeper to me.

LOL

For a start go play Farcry 1, you missed out on something huge there, this shit is bullshit compared to it.

Second, i hope thats a troll post cause its just full of fail all over. I'm not saying you're wrong with the halo/cod thing (same applies to BF aswell, just so i dont leave out any fanboi's)

Yes i just necro'd a thread, old forum, cant exactly respond to new posts and it was on the first page. /care

I think the game's pretty good, but I haven't played the first one. So it's good, if you don't compare it to the other.

Tactics

I did most single player acheivements on this one as soon as I got it but I just rushed through it.

After I was done I was ready to throw the whole game out my backdoor cuz all the time wasting traveling on it made me pretty friggin sick of it.

But....

I picked it up later, stuck it on harder difficulty + no aim assist
and then thought back to when I played jagged alliance 1 + 2 and applied jungle warfare tactics to the game.

Made it much more interesting for me to be honest. Actually had to use my brain for once and react faster or die.

I would have completed this on hardcore however the cell towers glitched out and my car kept blowing up and some invisible mortar men messed me up a lot of the time.

I feel that they focused more on the sandbox world and not enough on the actual mechanics of this game. I'm just trying to rush through it and boost the multiplayer achievements

I got this game free and I have to say Boosting ONLINE is a waste of LIFE. This game is fkn terrible. I would advise anyone who is looking to boost to go and do some volunteer work.

There must be somebody else. Finding a third one to share that opinion will be hard, though.
