    No implementation of co-op in FC2 ruined that game

    YAY! Third part coming!

    I'm full of hope! I loved first part, second never finished, took me a long time to get back on that two times, but never actually finished, for me was too much sand;) I prefer trees:D
    So I'm very happy they taking it all back to tropical island. I'm sure graphics will be nice, all effects etc. I only hope story will be better and they won't make us to run or drive 1000s of miles just to finish some somall task, like it was in Far Cry 2.
    For me the only dissapointment in Far Cry 1 were all the monsters at the end. So as long as they keep that new island short and full of action:)

    Graphically FarCry2 was brilliant, but game play was terrible and boring. FarCry1 was an awesome game up to the huge tank type monsters with no weapons as it was like a bad game of chase.

    If they can make FarCry3 with improved graphics of FarCry2 and the story and game play of FarCry1up to the stupid tank monsters then it will be an awesome game.

    My expectations are pretty low after Far Cry 2, I just don't feel Ubisoft are up to the task.
    Graphically it'll be nice, that's pretty certain but if they use a similar formula to FC2 the story and gameplay will be abysmal... really I'd prefer it if Ubisoft passed the baton on to some other developer to take a swing at this.

    Seriously some of the comments here...

    How many times does it need to be stated: Far Cry = Crytek, who then went their separate ways to make Crysis!
    Far Cry 2 is an unrelated developer using their own stories and engine.
    Far Cry 3 will have most in common with Far Cry 2 since it is the same engine (you could tell from the graphics and the FLASHING GOLD guns in the distance...). It seems to be the same devs as the script seems to have the same style as FC2 had.

    I played the first half of Far Cry 2, (went to second area) then gave up. It it hadn't been for the re-spawning enemies, the stupid AI and weapon degradation (which has never been a good addition to a game ever) it would have been pretty good IMO. Lets hope they fix that for #3

    QFT. On paper it seems good but in reality it just ends up pissing people off.

    Couldn't get into Far Cry 2. That Malaria or whatever it was thing just annoyed the hell out of me. It didn't impress me like Far Cry or Crysis did.

    Wonder when the next Doom will be out....

    Far Cry 2, such love & hate; good graphics and open world gameplay killed by the incredibly stupid incurable malaria, instantly respawning guard points and the lack of mod tools to fix the issues just added insult to injury... but despite the issues I still enjoyed it. Now lets hope they learned their lesson.

    Far Cry 2 wasn't necessarily terrible, it just had many missing and badly thought out options. For example, the exclusion of modding made it lose all the potential it had from the first one (they have fire mods for FC1 crazy huh?) and the fact that the world wasn't constructed very well in terms of thoughtfullness really made the game horribly unplayable when one plays for a long time.

    Not to mention everyone in that game is made of kevlar.

    haha funny comments I actually thought Far Cry 2, which i played on the Xbox360, was excellent!
    Yeah it wasn't as good as any of the Far Cry 1's ie on PC and Xbox and 360 which where just awesome but Far Cry 2 was a cool experience I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it better then the block buster games of now like CODs which i find good but vapid.
    I still play some FarCry1 on pc via gog.com so this to me is a good announcement.
    just mho

    So in other words they are going to try to emulate the 1st game, only it won't be as good. Oh joy :sigh:

    I won't deny that I enjoyed Far Cry 2, the only issue was finishing the game. It just became menial and tedious at one point because you were literally rinsing and repeating the same thing. They could've had a bit more variety in their gameplay but really what ended up happening was that the Ai was too omniscient and the chases just not engaging enough.
