Far Cry 2 (X360) > Opinions (42)

Played this game years ago and hated it. But I decided to give it another try since I liked FC3 so much.

Well... this game still kinda sucks. Getting around is a pain in the ass, the map is annoying, I hate you constantly run into people trying to kill you, and the story is hard to follow, voice acting is shit, but its still kind of a decent game. It definitely had the potential to be a much better game with relatively minor changes.

I thought this was a cool game. Singleplayer was alright, but had a lot of problems traveling to other places. I did it though, but the reason i'd give this an 8 is mainly cause of the amazing map editor for multiplayer. Added a lot of replay value to me.

I love shooters and open world games, but this game was awful in my opinion. Its just painfully boring.

I was a bigger fan of Farcry Instincts.

Yeah It's worth $10 for multiplayer and screwing around on single player. Not worth much more though imho.

Is this game worth 10 bucks? Because I was just about to buy it yesterday at Target for that much but I talked to friends who both played it. They said not to get, both rented it and returned the next day.

Just finished Far Cry 2 and I must say I enjoyed it very much. Easily one of the best games of 08. 9/10

The fact that this game was on sale at Gamestop/Amazon for about a month during the holiday season at $39.99 didn't hurt sales.

anygame that debuts with 250,000 or more is almost a guarantee for a million it just fell a bit short weather its really fast or it takes a few months so its not surprising it made it there, but an awesome holiday boost helped a lot

this game has a chance at 1 million as it is likely to be around 700k-750k by the end of the year and then will trickle to the line in much the same way as SC will.

FC2 is better than all the other console versions, its also the first Far Cry game since the original PC version that ive enjoyed, its a shame its only sold 500k so far, it deserves to be a million seller

Well Orange Box sold well at first, then it dropped off completely, part of the problem was releasing on the same week as Halo 3...

But Mr Stick, do you think this has a good shot at a million

Will be interesting to see how Christmas plays out. Otherwise, it may end up around what The Orange Box on 360 did.

This game is still going to sell a million on 360 in the end. It's not exactly a poor selling game. The only huge game ubisoft really made was Assassin's Creed. All their Tom Clancy games usually do between 1 and 2 million. They don't make really blockbuster games but they all sell enough to make them happy I'd guess.

ya 1 st person shooter gta clone is a great analogy of this game thats what I thought playing through it. Its so huge and detailed its awesome. lots of missions and stuff to find ,not as complex as gta but great game.
quarter million on 360 another 100,000 thousand on ps3 and probably 200,000 on pc minimum between steam and retail.

@OkeyDokey: It actually makes perfect sense that Far Cry 2 did better in Others. Far Cry 2 is a more open-ended shooter, like STALKER, which has a huge following in Europe. Even the first Far Cry and Crysis ware made by a German company. Americans prefer more linear shooters like Gears or Call of Duty. The first one also had a huge PC following so I wouldn't be surprised if it did better on the PC then most games nowadays, at least in Europe.

That said, I think Ubisoft dropped the ball on marketing this game. For American audiences, they should have advertised it as like a FPS GTA clone, casual American console gamers probably don't even remember the first Xbox "Far Cry" .

How could it do worse in America than others?
Americans love shooting things, espescially 360 owning Americans.

Nothing makes sense anymore.

Ya, it's really fun. My only problem is that there are so many shadows, you'll enter areas that are like pitch black during the middle of the day. Other than that though, great game.
