    I read (and this was nine months ago) that Crysis 2 was going to be released in March 2010

    I hope it's better and a lot more interesting than the second..
    I hope they eliminate the need to travel for long times between missions as well

    Wow. I remember at least a 4 year window in game development and yet Crytek has been churning these out at a fantastic rate. Far Cry was a fantastic game but I have to admit that I am still plodding my way through Far Cry 2 (it's good....frustrating...but good), and Crysis I never bothered to play as I didn't have the horsepower at the time to run it. Still, Far Cry 3 hopefully be better.

    I tried to get into the first one but never really thought much of it besides the graphics at the time. Never even played the second one. I'll have a look at the 3rd just to see what they bring this time.

    hopefully we dont need to wait for years like whats happening to the starcraft 2 and diablo 3. The commercials are out years before the actual game is released =_=''

    Same sentiment as everyone else. Far Cry 1 was great. Hope 3 turns out more like FC1 than FC2.

    I enjoyed FC2 but there was definately soon room for improvements. I hope the next installment has a stronger story with better character development, more variety in the missions, and buddy/co-op gameplay

    I feel like an echo is this thread but Far Cry 2 was horrible. I hope Far Cry 3 is something actually worth playing.

    Far Cry 2 looked great! Everything there was awesome. Now the engine will be better and that's awesome. I just hope it wont be as monotonic as the second game..

    I somewhat enjoyed playing farcry 1 and 2. I really enjoyed the graphic engine in farcry 2. Perhaps that is why I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to farcry 3 if they improve the gameplay a lot.

    I hope they do a better job with this than FarCry 2. That game was kind of disappointing

    ^^^ This. 100%. It needs a better story line than whatever crap they came up with for the second one, and it needs less repetitive missions. Every single one was pretty much "Here! Go kill this!".

    Their AI was also ridiculously accurate with their bullets. Halfway across the map? TOO BAD! You're getting sniped.

    I'm hoping it is much better than Far Cry 2. Far Cry 2 was horrible...

    FC2 is a good game in its own way but i just hope the improve on the gameplay a lot because it got really repetitive and the open sand box game world was less than stellar i hated having to run all the way across the map just to get to a mission lol.

    ^don't forget the enemy respawn points in between point A and B then having to fix your POS truck every 5 seconds due to pursuing gunfire. game is crap, a really good-looking pile of crap. the only way Ubi can make it right is if they drop the sandbox world and have a more linear experience and a MUCH better storyline. it worked for the first game, and it will work again as long as they don't recycle ideas or stray too far from the fps genre. sometimes i actually felt like i was playing GTA in FC2, which is something that killed the game for me.

    I got FC for free but i can remember where.
    And it is excellent game. I like to play it still from time to time.
    I did not play FC2 because my machine is a bit older :(
    But when the number 3 comes, maybe i will have stronger machine :)

    I hope Far Cry 3 will be more like Far Cry 1 than 2. The first one was great, the second one sucked really hard. Thank god for demos.

    I'm really looking forward to that. Not much of a Crysis fan but always loved Far Cry. Especially the first one.

    First game was pretty cool, second one was garbage imo. Maybe this one will be better

    I personally was not even remotely a fan of Far Cry to begin with. The graphics are nice and all..but what good are they when very few people out there can actually play them at there fullest...the way they were meant to be played. They need to optimize this game to run better on systems that are not top of the line..because personally I've never seen a reason for this game to be good enough to cause someone to go out and spend a ton of money to be able to max it when it was released.
