I was not impressed with FC2 at all, but I might give this a try should I become bored over the holiday season...

Oooh, excellent!

As for the Far Cry (1) for free, it's only for the US apparently. I couldn't get it to install.

Far Cry 2 just feels like an uninteresting FPS version of GTA4 for me........

Reminds me of downloading the DLC for mass effect then swearing to never buy/play an addon for a ridiculously long game again!

I thoroughly enjoyed FC2 on X360. If people find it boring, I can only assume it's because they didn't experiment with interesting ideas. I did missions in so many different ways, it ended up being as varied as the campaign in COD4. I never got bored and was amazed by the gorgeous open-world environment.

Two things would have made the game better, though:

1. People who don't shoot you on sight, meaning a real civilian population and a way to get through guard checkpoints by being popular with a friendly faction or by paying a bribe.

2. A persistent impact of the player's actions on the conflict. I'm thinking shifting faction territories on the map, gaining popularity with one faction over another so they don't shoot you on sight, and having to strike a balance because if one side wins the war is over too soon and you don't reach the Jackal - so on the one hand you'd want to be popular with one faction so you get more "safe" terrain on the map and maybe more arms dealers, but on the other hand you'd want to make sure you keep both sides in the war otherwise you lose in your quest for the Jackal. Now THAT would have made things more interesting.

Not a huge amount of use if you have already finished the game... but nice to see anyway

im just bummed that in FC2 i can crouch...take aim.... and fire 1 shot in the head.... and still the enemy stands strong as if he just got hit by a bug on the back of his pip! FC 1 was great due to the fact that it was not trying to be too realistic!
