That's good because Far Cry 2 was bloody boring.

FC2 is brilliant if you put in the effort.

Games shouldn't take "effort". They should be fun. Far Cry 2 was far too much work. Drive here. Kill him. Drive all the way across Africa. Oops I have Malaria. Take tablet. Kill these guys at a road block. Go to objective. Kill guy. Go back down same road. Oh the roadblock is repopulated. Get back to town. Rinse and repeat for 15 hours.

I hope Far Cry 3 has better controls than 2. All they need do is copy the control feel of Left4Dead, Halo or Modern Warfare. I loved the last game but gave up very quickly because of this issue. When will developers learn that unless the gamer is comfortable with the controls it's near impossible to enjoy a game.

I'm sure that smashing concrete slabs with your forehead is brilliant, but I wouldn't fancy trying it to be honest.

For me, FarCry 2 was more pain than joy. Still, I'll keep my eye on numero 3.

This has to accomplish a lot to live up to Far Cry 2. Some suggestions:

- Give the player an incurable disease again, which can debilitate you without warning at any moment. That was fun, what a fun and not completely moronic gameplay mechanic.
- Require the player to spend time digging bullets out of themselves after most fights.
- Enemies should always re-appear in previously cleared areas. Everyone loves this despite what they say.
- Make guns fail for no particular reason, especially those that fire explosives. There was nothing more fun than lining up a lovely shot with a rocket launcher only to have to bolt for your malaria-ridden life when it landed at your feet and started spinning around instead.
- Stealth should be promoted as part of the game, but enemies should be able to see you from miles away no matter how stealthy you try to be.

Finally, the Collector's Edition should include a fork which must be jammed into each eye before and after playing it. Also, some actual malaria.

FarCry 2:
Drive across lots of places that look excatly the same.

Get shot at everytime you come across someone.

Shoot back.

Gun breaks.

Die.

Someone picks you up.

Malaria kicks in.

Die of malaria.
=====================

I'd rather watch the Uwe Boll FarCry film than play FarCry 2 again. I actually requested that the person who got it for me for my birthday personally apologised to me and asked them to write a 200 word essay on why you shouldn't give people games that SUCK BALLS.

This game was spiteful.

Farcry 2 had a lot of potential, like Assassin's Creed 1. They nearly got it right but a few stupid errors really spoiled things.

Hopefully they fix Farcry like they did Assassin's Creed.

I agree so much with this. Case in point is Resident Evil 4 on the PC. The controls sucked so much the whole game was ruined and I've been put off the series for life.
