Not Far Cry 2,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far Cry 3 - The Lost Expeditions Edition(PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Played Far cry 1, loved it.
Played Far cry 2 (about a dozen times from start to finish), REALLY Loved it.
Have been awaiting Far Cry 3 literally for years, Disappointed. :(
All I really wanted was Far Cry 2 with, maybe a few more characters, some new missions and maybe a different landscape.
Well the landscape is certainly good and the new characters are good but the actual storyline and practical game play leave a lot to be desired. The Lack of a "quick save" was a major issue or me. If you have to stop playing mid mission, then next time the game is started you have to go right back to square one.
Credits in Far Cry 2 where gathered by earning diamonds, but in 3 it's done mainly by "Skinning" wildlife. What sort of Shoot 'em up is that ????
The worst bit is the stupid drug induced fantasy levels which have to be fought through if you want to proceed and see Citra's breasts.
A shoot 'em up should be just that IMO, no stabbing, no hunting animals, and no "drugs" which make your mouse hard to control.
PS I'm now playing Far Cry 3 Blood dragon (about a fiver to download). So it can't have been all that bad.
