Far Cry 2 (PS3) > Opinions (56)

Aj_habfan posted 23/05/2012, 05:56
Not a big game really, open world, good graphics, lots to do. Listing the pros is boring though, the cons: EVERYBODY IS OUT TO KILL YOU! Imagine if in GTA, every person had a gun, and was hostile towards you for 100% of the time - this is Far Cry 2. Also the pacing is slow, it feels like most of my time is driving to locations that are needlessly far away from the start point, and having guns jam every 5th shot is not a feature I would add in the future. Free with PS+ though, I had a decent time, can't complain too much

@numonex: The fact that you OWNED the game but didn't play because of what some dumb FPS fanboys online said just makes me facepalm.

None of those games even matched the hype Halo 3. Halo: Reach. May even eventually outsell Halo 3.

Far Cry 2 by majority rules on the net is meh. I owned the game traded it but never even played it. The net people put me off this game.

It's the unique open-world concept of this game that separated it from other linear FPS out there, and that's what boosted this relatively low-profile game (compared to the massive hype of Gears, Resistance, Call of Duty, Killzone 2, etc) to over a million copies sold per platform.

@ Statix im gonna have to disagree with u over 1080i looking MUCh better than 720p. On cod4 especially 1080i looks terrible, with it being much more blurred and not as sharp, the whole point of p is that its progressive and more sharp than i!

@Slimebeast: Sony is the one who gets "screwed" in the end because they'll lose the sales of people with older 1080i TVs, who get games for the XB360 instead. Unlike the PS3, EVERY XB360 game supports 1080i (upscaled) output.
Message | Report
Statix posted 16/01/2009, 07:53
1080i is much sharper and clearer than 720p. For PROOF, try playing a 1920x1080 game like Wipeout HD or Virtual Tennis in 1080i; it looks MUCH better than playing in 720p.

The only reason it's adviseable to choose 720p instead of 1080i is because most games are native 720p, so you would only be doing useless upscaling if you ran in 1080i. Well, useless if you don't have an older 1080i CRT TV, that is.

If TV don't have 720p than it is no HDTV.720p is much better than 1080i.

Freaking love this game. Prior to this I'd just finished Haze, so playing Farcry 2 is like travelling forward in time 5 years. Hope this game sells more, but they've been so many new releases on PS3 recently even good games get swamped. It'll pick up though.

Slimebeast, lots of old HDTV's only have a 1080i option, then the next one is like 480p, so if it can't do 1080i it will basically be running in SD.

@Aj_habfan: Obviously YOU don't care, but game developers might care about the potential sales lost with a portion of the PS3 install base not being able to buy the game. There's a reason every single 1.5 million+ selling PS3 game in the top-10 list is 1080i/p compatible (except Motorstorm and Resistance, but those don't count because they're launch titles).

Now you're seeing non-1080i games like Pacific Rift and LittleBigPlanet bomb in sales. Even Quantum of Solace PS3, which supports 1080i/p, matched Far Cry 2's sales in the US, and that just should not be.

Even if not supporting older HDTVs cost them a thousand units sold, that's not what a game company wants.

Statix, nobody cares about you people with old shitty HDTV's and I can guarantee it didn't cost any sales.

The main problem with the sales here is that they're absolutely embarrassing in America. Time will tell how the legs turn out.
Message | Report
Statix posted 17/11/2008, 08:01
I still say sales could have been at least a little better (particularly in the US) for this version if it just supported upscaled 1080i output for compatibility with slightly older-generation HDTVs. Instead, many people are screwed over once again and cannot play yet another PS3 game.

I liked the analogy 1st person shooter meets gta. suprising low sales for america on ps3 and 360 .

and obieslut or fathooker whatever your name is thats why the ps3 use's the harddrive its called a swap file like the original xbox did. Oblivion plays better on the ps3 then the 360 and the ram isnt the issue because it use a swap file from the hard drive.

ps Iam not mocking your name just using a play on words LOL
