They both rock. Do both so start with 4
Stay away from anyone telling you 2. Unless you like dealing with waves of respawning enemies and janky mechanics that are forced on you.
Waaaaah, i want shooting up a central African warzone to be buttery smooth waaaah
Also, waves of respawning enemies? What dope u smokin'? The camps get restaffed after you've moved on for a while, and sometimes in the midst of battle more enemies will drive up in vehicles, but people don't pop out of thin air endlessly like you seem to be suggesting!

I hated that at first but now that I’m replaying it again on the XSS for that 60fps deliciousness it really adds a lot of random fun and comedy to the game. Sure it’s over the top but it’s one of the most “alive” open worlds I’ve played in because of it.The one thing I didn’t like was how quickly the game threw rando enemies at you. You’d be standing there on the pier, fishing and minding your own business, and then a bunch of crazy cultists would jetski by you like hooligans shooting up the joint and a random bear or whatever would kill your fishing buddy. And that’d happen every minute or so! I’m gone fishin, leave me alone game AI!
That's a pretty exactly opposite reason to why i did it lol
Whatever, fc2 is awesome
You're free to like whatever you like, but personally it's garbage. Most of the mechanics in the game got in the way of having fun. Respawning enemies, your guns jamming, dealing with malaria, etc etc, all that shit got tedious and annoying. Missions were repetitive, script was awful. The AI being completely broken to the point where enemies just bee line towards you instead of taking cover doesn't help at all.
Your idea of having fun is your own...
I love it because it's different, i don't play all games to coast through them, you're not GTAing the fucking place you're participating in a senseless war. Of course camps respawn, there's a nation of child soldiers standing by to be exploited in their defence.
What you say are janky mechanics that get in the way of your gunning down mofos are in actual fact a suite of mechanics that multiply immersion, make every clearing in every jungle ravine a possible flashpoint, every bullet fired possibly your last, increase tension and atmosphere; encourage you to slink through the trees listening and set forest fires rather than vroom around running npcs over and cackling with your friends.
They don't instantly respawn in your lap, they refresh some time after you've moved on -- your experience of "respawning enemies" was probably a patrol that drove up while you were busy raging at your jammed rustbucket ar-15 lol
If you actually played the damn game you'd know that after completing the opening map and its lieutenants you go to a new, different map... With the next "rank" lieutenants doing the same kind of missions for the same factions.. it's all a self perpetuating disasterpiece that you can't change with just your one set of limbs. In the end you kill yourself by touching of a giant bomb to destroy part of a mountain and free refugees who have been surrounded, guess this wouldn't fit with your power fantasy? Doesn't mean it's a shit game.
I mean, if that's not for you, fine, but your reasons amount to "my happy meal is at the counter and i cbf going to get it", so maybe keep it to yourself lol, just tell the op "far cry 2 is for masochists" instead of calling it a crap game with crap mechanics.. because it's not, papers have been written about it deconstructing videogame expectations, they haven't been written about it sucking.
My enjoyment of the game about as insulated from your opinion as dust on the moon is insulated from fish turds in the Pacific lolYou are wildly overstating how complex this game was,
It gave me some frustration, but I really enjoyed it. I would have loved to see the series continue in this direction. The survival elements, the fire physics, the sandbox design, etc...Far Cry 2 for the best atmosphere and gameplay systems. Then you'll play the rest of the series and wonder "what happened?"
That game was ahead of its time. From a pure gameplay perspective its the best out of the series. I also prefer the story which is grounded in realism, Far Cry 3 and onward went off the deep end with the crazy... literally. Not that the rest of the games are bad, but Far Cry 2 does it much, much better. It's a more refined and tight 25hr or so experience that is enjoyable all the way through. The rest of the series is filled with typical Ubisoft bloat...

I think it was me who said it's perfectly fine for you to not like it let's all be superior shall we? Anyway, enough has been said. Selected reading to support my "position" they the game is complex.
I've said my part, let's leave it to others.
Educating you on why you're wrong doesn't imply I'm pressed by your ignorance, it implies I'm procrastinating on an internet forumWhy are you still in my notifications?
Are you seriously this pressed by me not liking your favorite shooter?

I'm still in your notifications because you're taking last words that repaint your position like a scrub and trying to hit it and quit lol, how's that for unwelcome notifications?
Fam, you've been baiting me with disrespect the second I explained why I thought the game was trash.
You are pressed. You just simply have too big of an ego to admit it.
The truth hurts sometimes. I tried to like FC2 so many times, and I can certainly see why some people like it with some of its unique mechanics, but man that game went out of its way to ruin my fun.
I'd be having a good time, raiding some outpost or exploring the area, then BAM, I have malaria, no pills, and not enough time to get new ones. Have fun dying. Also, my gun is now jammed, I'm on fire and I'll never find that diamond I just spent the last hour searching for. And I sneezed, so the entire continent of Africa now knows where I am and is shooting at me.
It's stunning to me what a huge leap forward 3 was for the series. Stripped away everything from 2 that did not work, then went out of its way to make it fun.
I disagree. If you play 5 like 2 you can get pretty much the same experience. Fuck all the trophy stuff though, turn that off or ignore it.2 or 3.
Seriously, 4 and 5 get tiresome so quickly.
