    Question

    Played the original Far Cry game and personally think it goes down as one of the best shooters in history (or at least the history of shooters I've played). However, I haven't bothered to play Far Cry 2. Should I buy Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3 or should I just get Far Cry 3 and keep it at that. It looks like the scores for Far Cry 2 are pretty mediocre, but it's only $2.50 in the Amazon sale so I just wanted some additional input.

    Thanks

    FC2 has a lot of repetitive missions/gameplay. It's one of those games that starts out with a lot of promise (reasonable graphics for its time) but gradually grinds you down with the kill-this-to-get-this nature of the side missions and endless travelling between locales. Stick to the main storyline and it isn't too bad - probably worth $2.50.

    Thanks! I'll get it then.
  5. Stay the heck away from (dead space), horrendous control, load time etc. It's like they'd got a bunch of *****s working on the porting.

    I found the game to be pretty good. The controls and third person perspective take a little adjustment, but for an on-rails horror survival game it does OK - pretty atmospheric for what it is, although the difficulty level isn't overly extreme - not in comparison to say the Misery or Narodnaya Solyanka mods for STALKER for instance. Talking of which, the Lost Alpha mod isn't far away.

    Dead Space is certainly worth well more than what they're asking ($0)
