Good. As stunning as the setting in FC2 is, it's time for a change.

Reall? I was pretty happy with FC2...

Fyzzu3308d ago

Totally agreed. Far Cry 2 was lovely, but the location got a bit stale by the end.

I love urban warfare games. Not the warfare itself but in games it is much more up my alley , no pun intended.

The environments in fc2 were much more real to me than crysis etc. Crysis looks amazing, but the afternoon sun glare over an open field in fc2 was just stunning.

It's kind of a shame they're not using africa again, but a change is as good as a holiday.

It sounds like they haven't started 'developing' the game at all, and that they are just planning, how can they even write the story if they don't know where it's going to be set

[email protected]3308d ago my PS3 unfortunately. Far Cry 2 was a perfectly wrapped present with a turd in it. A turd that respawns no matter how many times you try to get rid of it.

@1.4: Maybe they have a general theme in mind like "tropical", "desert" or "urban", but they just haven't nailed down the exact location yet.

I really enjoyed FC2. i loved the emersion of the whole game. It felt like a real world and that i could travel over vast and realistic locations. It felt like i could tackle missions anyway i wanted much like in real life.

Africa's such a good continent though...

Maticus3308d ago

Back to a tropical island perhaps?

thetamer3308d ago

No, I don't think so. I think the whole point of this is to make the franchise somewhere new, which is what I got from FC2. I would love to see it somewhere like China or Siberia.

AndyA3308d ago

Wherever it is, to be in keeping with the series, it needs to have that combination of stunning scenery, wildreness and lawlessness. Not a lot of places that have that.

south america would be way better than africa imo

PantherDST3308d ago

I don't care where the game takes place I just hope they improve the enemy AI. I got tired of enemies simply charging you no matter the situation. It was almost comical as they would drive or run in a straight line to attack the player. The game looked great but the AI was terrible.

iistuii3308d ago

AI was poor. I hated the checkpoints where you'd clear it, the drive back 5 mins later and it was over run again and they'd just run or drive at you. Also the pc version with quick saves made the safe houses a complete waste of time.
