Disappointment is a feeling that most gamers experience in their gaming career quite regularly, be that through over-commitment from developers, PR moguls or their own imagination. We are disappointed when that hope you had of being lost in a game for weeks on end turns out to be a broken mess or a boring chore. Or it just doesn’t meet your lofty expectations regardless of what your favourite games website, your best friend or your cat says.
Far Cry 2 was one of these games, it did everything right on paper but when it came down to it Far Cry 2 did not quite click, it will forever be one of those games with so much promise - a great concept, great ideas and a very pretty game engine but all of that did not quite deliver, leaving most people with another unfinished game on their shelf.
So what is the opposite of disappointment for your average Far Cry fan? Far Cry 3 that’s what! Smoothing over almost every crack which covered the ambitious canvas that was its predecessor, Far Cry 3 is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have this year.
