Far Cry one was a fun shooter and the promise of it's growth into the first sequel was superb. Unfortunately FarCry 2 was just too much hard work with it's frustratingly annoying respawning outposts blocking every single path you ever took. Due to this I played through about half of it before giving up, trading it in and nick naming the game Fart Cry. All this conspired for me to ignore the forthcoming installation as I didn't hold out much hope for improvement of a game that sat slap in the middle of the open world shooter genre.

Apparently going by the EuroGamer review my worries for the title were completely unfounded. Whilst the beauty of the island is just as good as the former title they've spent time refining the gameplay to actually make it fun. No longer will the enemy descend upon you because they spotted your nose whilst you were sitting in a shrub 2 miles away from them. Now there's a fully functioning stealth element and the hateful respawning outposts seem to have been removed for a territory acquisition model.

So without further ado the link to the review; it's a good one and I must say whilst I'm not going to rush out and buy it this title is now firmly back on my radar.

I never played the first one (PC only I think) but did play 2. The map editor was what made the game, being part of a community that were avid map makers and being able to play MP on them was great. Thankfully the editor has made a return for number 3 and it has been enhanced, so I for one am looking forward to getting this.

I completed far cry 2 and I quite enjoyed despite its obvious issues, I too am tempted by the new one having seen the review but not sure I want to pay full price for it. One thing tyhat worries me is that the open world gaming in the last game meant that the game was very samey all the way through, it lacked the set pieces of other games that made them memorable.

Constantly running from one end of the map to the other to do a mission the same as the last was a pain in 2, but I still enjoyed playing it. The revamped multiplayer with coop did it for me, along with the promise of a more linear open world rather then same thing different place is a bonus, I just hope they did it right.

I sold the game on before they revamped the multiplayer with new modes , I recall thinking I should have kept it when they released more multiplayer stuff, but it was too late by then. I hope the new multiplayer has a few more original game modes.

Was one of my favorite games of the time. Didnt finish single player ( I rarely do) went straight into the multiplyer which I loved as for some reason I wasn't totally crap at it. What really made it a favorite though, was the map creator. I spent DAYS making maps that no one would ever play on, but I really enjoyed it.
What puts me off the next one is the over the top violence and language. Dont think it needs to go that far to get decent sales. For this reason I was going to give it a miss, but have decided that I'll try to ignore the bad language, as I really want to play M P and create maps. so its coming for christmas.

Managed to play one of the 8 co-op missions with JKrohn tonight. Good fun. The mission had it all: run-and-gun, defend objectives, blow up stuff and big badasses to take down. I'm up for more of this. It should be fun with 4 players in a game.

Ok a couple of TDM played and I can say its average paced not as slow as BF3 but not as fast as CoD. It's good at balancing the team but when people leave it becomes very unfair. Still was fun even when losing. I try to stick as a team following guys around, shadowing them until they or I get shot. Most people use silencers and it does make it a little harder. Hope to get on coop again with Spruijt and Ralph ;) maybe next week when they both are free

I'm tempted to unwrap it when the family are asleep and play it for a while before wrapping it up again and hoping that no one notices when I unwrap it on christmas day.

It's really freaking good, the single player is supposed to be fantastic but I haven't had a chance to play. So off Only a little MP and Coop I'm happy I bought it.

Only problem is the uplay online pass :( I hate online passes
