Farcry 2 is pretty terrible, but for 3$ it might be worth it.

Its a lot of missed opportunities, specifically on the no wildlife, no stealth at all.

Its a very pretty game, but it falls very short on substance, especially if youve played any current games recently.

Pretty sure the realism mod fixes the stealth quite a bit.

Far Cry 2 is very worth it. I wrote this on the Amazon thread awhile ago.

"It gets way more flak than it deserves. I read all those complaints too and so many of them are just petty nonsense. A big complaint was having to heal yourself (pull a bullet of your leg, shrapnel, etc) mid-battle when you hit critical health, but I think it's a really neat feature that keeps you alive.

Agreed.

Another complaint was having to pop malaria pills every once in awhile, and I can tell you that it's once in a pretty long amount of time and takes a whopping 4 seconds.

I also never had a problem w/ the malaria component/mechanic, either.
Then again, I never really had a problem w/ the spirit-meter in NWN2: Mask of the Betrayer, either. ;)

The only complaints I do understand are (like you said) the respawning enemy checkpoints. Those can be annoying on high difficulties, because on high difficulty, enemies are DANGEROUS. That said, realistically I do think enemies would send new forces out to wiped out checkpoints. As quickly as FC2 does? Probably not, but oh well. I play this game when I'm up for a serious challenge (I play on Notorious difficulty), meaning a few bullets can take me down, while the same goes for my enemies. It's ing hard, but when I'm in the mood for a hard, fulfilling game with a crazy level of immersion, It's awesome.

As for missions repeating... I don't know. I suppose the game can get repetitive, but what game doesn't?

I thought a lot of the side missions of "wiping out safe-houses" & "wiping out outposts" often felt like cut & paste jobs w/ little variation to them. THIS was one of my biggest FC2 complaints - i.e. exactly how I felt about AC1 w/ the way it did side-questing.

FC2 was in a poor state, when I bought it (i.e. not too long after its original release). It was buggy-as-hell out-the-box w/ some broken quests (think like Boiling Point: Road To Hell) and poor performance on my old rig - and took Patch 1.03 to overhaul most of those concerns I had w/ the game. Patch 1.03 fixed a lot of the "Save corruption" and "broken quest" issues, BTW.

Spoiler


Though, I will say this - yes, Main Quest stuff was very good.

All in all, I think it's an amazing buy for the price ($2.50 or $1.50). When I was in a turret in the back of a truck, laying down fire through the trees and suddenly noticed that I was shooting massive limbs off the trees and clearing a shooting lane, I was sold. There's a lot of work put into that game, and it shows.

FC1 and FC2 are absolute steals at those prices.

(Oh, and the multiplayer servers are still going strong. Can be good fun, and there's a level editor program packed with the game. SO many custom levels online, you wouldn't believe it.)"

Funny - I never touched the MP.

Last time I played online, there were a lot of people playing, and a lot of dedicated servers. The map making community seems to be pretty damn active and the stuff they create is pretty impressive.

Also, be sure to grab these two mods before you start playing. The game is much better with both of them.

Realism Mod
Graphics Mod

Thanks for ALL of that info. :D

Is there a newer, more complete version on the horizon?

There is wildlife; I remember seeing Zebras, antelope, and bison for example. No lions, though.

Yep my thoughts exactly, Far Cry 2 was alright for an hour then just got bored.

In my experiance, I wasn't that into it at the beginning, but it got way more fun after a couple of hours when I understood how everything worked.

Far Cry 2 was $1.49 on Amazon during the publisher coupon promotion, by the way. Otherwise it's really not going any lower than $2.50.

The Civ 5 GOTY is missing two DLCs - the Korea DLC and the Ancient Wonders DLC. 2K was thoughtful enough to make a bundle of the two for completists:

(steam URL)/sub/11092/

You save a few cents off buying them individually.

About 30 minutes left and I haven't voted yet. Not surprising because I already own all 3 choices.

Since it obviously doesn't matter to me, I throw it out to you guys. First person to tell what to vote for shall get their wish.

You know, if 2k was really thoughtful, they would have included that with the GOTY.

UPlay also keeps track of your playing time; but I do understand the STEAM tracking part.

Fact is I am fairly sure that I have bought games that I don't remember. Too much to keep track of to not have it in a unified client.

I have enough databases and lists to manage for work .. don't want to have to do it for my hobby as well :headache:

I feel the same way...but I guess it isn't too bad since I also have AC3 on Uplay. It's just annoying to me that these other companies try to compete with Steam but hey, it's inevitable. Too many damn clients!!

How can I get rid of this deep want for this. I could save vast amounts of money if I could get rid of this neurosis. HALP ME.
Adding games to steam as non-steam is not an option.
