Going Back to FC2?

This is the first Far Cry I have played and I'm enjoying it. Just want some opinions on whether this game makes FC2 too dated to enjoy or is it a pretty good game in its own right?


HA! Never mind. Just looked looked through FC2's achievement list and if its servers are even still open there's no way I am putting that kind of time into it. So lets say how does game just from an enjoyment factor play as compared to FC3?

I just completed Far Cry 2. Took me a month to 100% complete, best option is for the 100% is, Derank to 30, and then work your way to Souldier of Mistfortune and then the other levels while boosting weapons! I did lvl 1-20 derank than souldier of mistfortune. Single player took me a week to 100% campaign, and 2-3 weeks to boost MP!

Far cry 2 is a very good game. But FC3 Is much much better. I would recommend giving it a try tho.

I still have FC 1 and 2 and played FC 3 one day and sold it. I'm just not into RPGs.

Fixed for accuracy.

Far Cry 2 is a huge steaming pile of shit, plain and simple. Avoid it at all costs.

He keeps telling everyone this is an RPG and it's horrible but he loves Skyrim, it doesn't make any sense to me. I think he got scared off by the tutorial and gave up. It's irritating to read people trash a game and not know what they're talking about. This was easily one of the top games of last year, I don't think I've seen anyone who's played it disagree. I enjoyed the massively flawed Far Cry 2 personally, but you'd never catch me playing it a second time and there's nobody who liked that game that would argue Far Cry 3 isn't a huge improvement. Oh and again, it's not a fucking role-playing-game.

Yeah I've noticed him constantly saying it's an RPG too, I chaulk that up to him being an ignoramus. Also, for someone who didn't like the game he's quick to post in it's area of the forum. I can understand if he didn't like it, but to call it an RPG, when it's not, meanwhile talking about how great Skyrim is makes my fucking head explode.

I usually agree with most of what you say, but this couldn't be any further off the mark..

It's not a bad game at all, it's really fun to complete the story so don't worry about the haters. There are some aspects that are a pain like how guards respawn from outposts as soon as you leave the area so traveling around Africa can be a pain, but that hardly diminishes from the game as a whole. If possible play it on PC and download Dylan's mod because that fixes many people's gripes about the game and makes it a lot of fun.

I just couldn't get into Far Cry 2 at all. It had a lot of promise - godd story and villain but some of the games mechanics were just a pain in the backside.
