Far Cry 2 Opinions

Postby Sandi1987 » Sat Aug 12, 2017 8:29 am

Why this game sucks? I like Far Cry 1, 3 and 4 and i can't play Far Cry 2 for more then 2 hours because it's boring. The whole game only brown color.

i don't want to say phrases like "boring country.." but given that you like 1 and 3 and the gameplay hasn't changed considerably in between.. my guess is you just dont like africa.. or being a malaria ridden pawn in a very linear open world.

My favourite bit: going on the rooftoops in the center town and starting a survival type gunfight.

Far Cry 2 is slower paced and arguably more realistic than 3 and later, though it has in general the same basic gameplay. I happen to prefer this approach and I really like the African Setting. For me FC 2 is by far the best one in the series, followed by the original and I really don´t care about 3 and later too much because at the time 3 got released UbiSoft milked the "Ubi-Open-World" Gameplay style already to the point that it wasn´t fun anymore.

This video explains it better than anything else I've come across :

It wasn't fun and had nothing to do with Far Cry 1.

It wasn't fun in the early days when the frak'n saves would corrupt & then it took a year if i recall correctly for ubi to patch the bloody thing.Its a good game if you have time to kill,for instance if you were waiting in line to be admitted into hell.The golden ak47 was a good touch.

I remember buying this at launch & hating it. It's brown, bland, the characters might as well be nonexistent because that's how interesting they are, the map sucks & is an absolute chore to navigate, etc.

Then I was on a forum where people told me, "Nah, the game's great - it's a thinking man's FPS w/ lots of interesting gameplay systems." People lumped it in w/ the likes of Deus Ex, Dishonored, Thief, System Shock 2, and other games that I adore. So I tried it again, gave it a few hours, and yep, I still hated it.

I'm honestly not much of a Far Cry person. I loved the original when it released on PC but it hasn't aged particularly well, 2 was a mess, 3 was okay but I didn't stay with it, 4 and Primal are still in my backlog.

I don't like the whole series.
FarCry 1 was ok in some ways (especially for it's time) but all the sequels bored me to death (played all of them for 30-60 minutes each)

Im mixed on it, i got it way back when it first came out and hated it. Respawning enemies everywhere and malaria mechanic so i couldnt explore as much as i wanted to, never really got far on it.

I tried it again like a year or so ago on pc and still wasnt super into it but i need to play it more. I remember using sweetfx to make the colors pop, made a huge difference from the dull browns.

I loved 1, 3 and instincts tho

I'm quite FAR from that game...

i have played INSTINCTS on ogXBOX :
good in 2 player, bad in offline solo (despite very good graphics, bugs, respawning enemies
AND sometimes corrupt gamesave ! :x )

second chapter second-hand bought for xbox360 :
the ONLY thing i liked of it is to go around and put fire on things... sad but true
