    do you have malaria in this one again? Or does it go back to when it's actually good and you have feral powers.

    Unlike the rest of the world, I thought Far Cry 2 was a great game

    I was also one of the few who really enjoyed Far Cry 2. Yes it had lots of annoyances and wasn't a crowd pleasure for sure, but the environment and the graphics engine was just so beautiful that it made up for a lot of it. I'm a gamer who likes to spend time enjoying the scenery, I don't just rush through like most. I have no doubt all the big annoyances people had with the single player will be straighted out in one way or another.

    However there was one HUGE downfall with FC2 multiplayer. Artificially limited ballistic range. Meaning if you fired your AK-47 assault rifle at an enemy more than say, 30 meters away, your bullets would no longer exist past 30 meters. The enemy still heard the sound effect of bullets wizzing by, but the matter didn't exist so you would not get your hits. You can easily see this by shooting at water from a distance, up close your bullets hit and you see the splashes. Keep moving away from the water and very soon, your bullets will no longer hit the water. WHY?!?!?! WHY did they do that??? This completely crippled the game to where EVERYONE had to use a sniper rifle, that was the only way to get a kill. And even the sniper rifles had artificially limited ballistic range. It was just TERRIBLE and I hope that problem no longer exists in FC3.

    Also please include LAN, plenty of us still have LAN parties you know...

    Far Cry 2 is probably the last remnant of my Steam Christmas sale games that I have yet to play. Too many games too little time.

    I thought FC2 was awesome apart from the constant malaria and respawns. I mean, i hated driving past the same damn guard tower 7 times on one mission, each and every time the SAME guys driving the SAME jeep with the SAME ****ing RPG launcher.

    FC2 was awesome, however, did FC3 look to much like a 360 game to anyone else?
