Far Cry 3 fixing all Far Cry 2′s travel woes, “we wanted to make driving fun”

OPM: Anyone who played Far Cry 2 will remember fixing cars by the side of the road, getting stuck on trees and walking. So much walking. Far Cry 3′s lead game designer Jamie Keen says travel won’t “become a chore this time”. (Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I enjoyed FC 2 but gee I'm glad they're fixing up the traveling aspect. There's nothing worse than crashing your car in the middle of nowhere and having to walk a million miles only to be shot by a respawned bad guy you just blew up 30 seconds ago.

Hmm
I watched a video on this @ gametrailers.com and I have to say this game looks amazing to me. Far Cry 2 was fun but needed some tweeks. This one just seems like it's exactly what I wanted from part 2.

I gave up on far cry 2 when I had a 10 minute walk to my mission and then came across a tricky bit where I died. I then respawned back where it had last saved hence another 10 minute walk. After repeating this process three times I switched it off and never played it again. This was a shame because at times far cry 2 blew the pants off other shooters, but it was just too unuser friendly for my tastes.

Might give 3 a go if it is fixed. I strongly believe in open world games like this that you should be able to save when you want or certainly when out and about between major locations anyway.

I might have to pick up this game again. Last time I played it was on my old system with a sound blaster audigy 4. That particular sound card would cause your system to bsod if you pick up more health packs or whatever they were. Kinda hard to play when you can't heal. How is that for a crazy issue though.

This game is looking better and better with every article. One of the only games where I'm looking for another article daily. I'll be getting it day one. For sure.
