Surfer Girl on Far Cry 2 & More

Surfer Girl reports that Far Cry 2 is the first-person shooter of the year (sorry, Resistance 2)...sorry about that person doubting you. The console versions are definitely not Far Cry 2 Instincts, there is very little compromise in anything other than graphics. Better than Crysis and the first Far Cry, best first-person title since BioShock (sorry, Clint), best thing to come out of Ubi Montreal since Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time.

hmmm nice to have best 2 fps's on the ps3 for a change. Far cry looks fantastic but in games like far cry the first thing you notice is visuals. Once the visuals are compromised it makes it less of the game it should be.
Correct me if i'm wrong wasnt it surfer girl that said far cry 2 was quite far from completion and the tech demo they showed was more or less a dream they arent even close to achieving?

yea she said it was terrible then apparently she changed her mind. Just proves how useless this surfer girl is

Big deal. Any gamer that has been paying attention could of told us that Far Cry 2 is going to be great. All the sites that have done previews so far have been telling us the same thing for weeks now.

Actually, it's the unique and deep gameplay of Far Cry 2 that intrigues me the most, not the graphics. No offense to KZ2 or R2, as I am looking forward to those two as well, but their gameplay looks like simple, arcade shoot-em-ups in comparison.

sonarus3685d ago

lol its a fps how deeper can the gameplay be you just point and shoot. The only difference would be its non linearity but KZ2 and Resistance 2 will probably take the edge with great stories. From the tech demo i saw the game looks fantastic with weapons that jam when not handled well and having to pull out bullets with pliers sh!t like that are completely awesome. But i still believe resistance 2 will win shooter of the yr because the far cry 2 will be weaker on consoles. Then i think the whole 60 player multiplayer and the 8 player coop will really help resistance stand out. All they have to do is make the game 60fps and improve the graphics to what we have seen in the screenshots and its in the bag. It maybe close but i believe resistance will win in the end. Not saying far cry 2 wnt be better but we all saw what happened to crysis last yr.

Sorry, Sonarus, but Resistance sucked. Maybe its because I'm used to PC stuff like Stalker or something, but I've played Resistance and it was so bad I wanted to cry. If Resistance is the direction FPS are going, then the genre can just disapear as far as I'm concerned.

Far Cry 2 is indeed packed with potential and with Ubi Montreal at help, all of this might be true.

If I had the money to build a new PC I would and I would also get Crysis and Far Cry 2 on the PC rather than my PS3 or 360. I just feel that some games are best played on the PC, like the Half Life series for example or any Valve game, idk why I feel that way but I do.

Expecting disagrees.


Lol, sorry about that stupid typo.

Iron Man 23685d ago

Dark Sniper agrees with you,some games are just best on PC and feel more better on the PC with keyboard and mouse


travelguy2k3685d ago

because i don't know what you would "...get it for the PC rather than your PC..."?????

solar3685d ago

you are correct Zone. PC rules online FPS gaming.

avacadosnorkel3685d ago

but doesn't matter...I might get both.
