The Far Cry 3 map is just insanely massive, it goes on forever and ever and I

Far Cry 3's engine is very impressive. Huge environments with virtually no load screens, huge amounts of detail, dynamic weather, animal AI, etc - it really is a step above most first person shooters. I'd really like to see more developer licence the engine.

Hmmm perhaps I should give this a look. Would playing the first two help?

No need for the first two. Independent story line.

I agree it is the best game I've played for a long time. Fantastic fun just sneaking up and taking over outposts without triggering alarms.

Farcry one was amazing. It introduced me to lush jungle/beach open environments. Very unexpected sci-fi twist on the later levels too. Still is one of my fondest memories in gaming.

Too much good stuff to list. Great game overall.

Farcry2 - forget about it. Nothing to do with far cry for all I care. Huge disappointment. Boring environment, tedious missions...

But the FC3 has nothing to do with the first two so you can safely skip them.

I have a lot of issues with FC3 too, but, overall level of pure fun I had playing the game was almost at FC1 level... in a different, more modern,way

I'd say Far Cry 1 sucked and 2 while fairly directionless was actually playable (and pretty fun.)

But really, skip em both.

What, Farcry 1 is in the same boat as Crysis 1: awesome games when they were released, really cool first couple of levels, then alienz n' ****. :laugh:

If anyone likes Farcry 3 but hasn't played Just Cause 2, you're doing yourself a disservice.

id really needs to step it up a notch to catch up to this engine with doom4's variant of tech5 or future with tech6 or they're gonna be left in the dust for good :[

The original Far Cry was a decent game but the narrative was incredible cheesy and the final third of the game was terrible. Far Cry 2 had some significant gameplay issues (respawning guard posts, malaria gimmick, etc) but the engine was very impressive, the setting unique and overall I consider it a better game. Far Cry 3 combined the strengths of both the previous titles, while taking things in a new direction, creating incredibly memorable characters and adding more non-narrative tasks.

It's not a popular opinion but I consider the original Far Cry to be the weakest in the series. Far Cry 3 is a must play.

Far Cry 2 was something I picked up and instantly put down. It was big in scope but it has weird limitations that made it less accessible than it was meant to be. Far Cry 3 definitely remedies those things.. It's a lot of fun.

This was my first Far Cry, and something I've rarely seen is the dynamic weather. When a storm came up on me for the first time when I played I was SO happy. Wish there was a setting to increase different weather likelihoods. Im sure the PC might have something.. Either way can't wait for a harder difficulty and optional respawning camps

I imagine you should probably settle the account with your missus instead of wanting more Far Cry... unless she's already packed things :D
