Poll Is Far Cry 2 a Cult Classic now? (36 votes)

Yes 28%
No 72%

Hello friends,

Looking back in 2008 when game was released many people complain about it. many. and it was one of the most hated game of that time. 10 years later the game is just being use as an example of great physics and all. i realize it take 10 years to finally see far cry 2 is indeed a great game. and probably the best in series by long shot. it sure have problems, like repetetive missions and respawning enemies but it was better than later games in series including 3 4 and primal. havenot played 5 yet so cant comment but theres video show FC5 is backward compare to this game so i doubt its better.

Far cry 3 was very overrated. it was good game sure, but it can be tedious at time, too many long unskipable cutscenes and thats the problem of later games in series. plus inclusion of wallhack, tagging enemies, make those games more casual compare to FC2. FC4 and primal were just bad. like worst in series.

so my friends what do you think? is this game 10 years later a cult classic? lets discuss.

I loved 2, but found some of it’s mechanics a bit frustrating. 3 was better in my opinion.

I enjoyed aspects of it, particularly the Dunia engine was quite impressive, but it's still a flawed game in many regards with the gameplay design.

It was quite ahead of its time, but basically the foundation for the typical Ubisoft open world formula. Incredibly repetitive and shallow, even back then.

@tryit: some people believe that if there's no gun involved it isn't worth their time... Its super sad.

Imagine having a hobby thats capable of putting you anywhere on earth to be whomever we choose and to interact with worlds and lands unseen and all developers can come up with is being a guy with a gun....

Our vision as to what this hobby can be so shortsighted it hurts.

Doom.

my friend, when far cry 2 was released. i deem it as poor mans Stalker. but then 10 far cry games release later. i realize far cry 2 is closest thing to stalker than far cry 3 to onwards. 3 to onwards are copy and paste. FC2 gameplay is still unmatched.

when you are taking mission and talking to someone. game still let you to control your character unlike far cry 3 which took control over player to show emotional long cutscene about jason being angry over his girlfriend being angry.

Far Cry 2 was an above-average game that was unfairly over-criticized for a few of its weaker mechanics, specifically enemy respawns. It also was a bit buggy.

It did a lot of things right, and was and is an incredibly beautiful game. I liked it, but I like FC 3, 4, and 5 more. And Blood Dragon of course.

Good question, and i don't think they do, if a game has to many cutscenes or sequences without combat they start to name it as a movie.

That's what happens around here.

Yes

The problem is, the people that try to do something different often try something too different.

I do love my city builders, RPG's, and so forth.

With that said, if you know of a game that is as exciting as a fast-paced shooter, please let me know about it. I know not every game has to be exciting and whatnot, but when a game as peaceful as Firewatch, or as time-consuming as Cities: Skylines or Civilization comes out that can also entertain me as much as DOOM (2016) or Dishonored or Far Cry 5, that's when I will be like "Nope, we don't need so many shooters".

lol crafting is in far cry 3. and things like exploration, stealth can be present in games with combat like FPS.

we dont need boring walking simulators.

I am refering to what I often do in most of my games I have been playing for the past 5 years or so

building, crafting, farming, fishing, hunting, exploring, mining....and combat.

its like I live in a different universe from people here

crafting is in far cry?

so that means you can craft at least around 30 person items and about 30 or so building items...right?

how many different ores are there to find and refine in Far Cry 2?

Far Cry 2 was interesting but very flawed, the other games are great but unremarkable. Overall I'd say 2 is the best.

EDIT: I was only counting the main games, Blood Dragon is by far the best if you count that.

Exploring on foot in Far Cry 2 is boring and tedious, not to mention the inability to climb many of the shallow hills can easily get frustrating. The monochrome color palette of the game world only made it worse.

Far Cry 3 and 4 made exploration more fun. Plus, the color palette is much better.

Far Cry 2 is one of the few open-world games I have no desire to replay.

*SIGH* Such a lousy color palette in comparison to Far Cry 3......

You can download an unofficial patch to eliminate the AI seeing you through the walls. I still liked the game, even with the trigens. I thought they were a nice change of pace. Most shooters get to feeling old well before you finish them, and this one was a joy to play from start to finish. It's easily the best shooter I've played.

trigens make game worse. and they are the reason i never finish FC1. it was not fun to fight them.

Crytek heavily improved all over with Crysis 1. now that was goundbreaking game.

Not me. I was getting burnout towards the end of the first Far Cry. I haven't played 5 yet. But, Far Cry 4 is my favorite overall.

I enjoyed Crysis, but the suit made the game very easy. It was still fun for a play through, though.

I agree. Crysis was very easy. even on delta is a cake walk. never understood why PC gamers deem it as some kind of hardcore PC game.

The only real gripe I have with Far Cry 4 is the unskippable cutscenes. The UI isn't a big concern because I can turn it off or customize it if needed be.

When it comes to sheer exploration, Far Cry 4 is a joy. It doesn't even come close to being the worst in the series.

Far Cry 2 has alot of problems, but it's about the only modern AAA Ubisoft game that doesn't feel designed by a committee, ambitious with actual ideas even if it did trip over. For that reason it's a game I don't enjoy, but can at least admire.

If that was the case then the last of us would've been a perfect fit with your taste. But alas you just dismiss it as a movie game.

@dantesergei: the funny about this is that the guy you quoted was boasting in other thread that all games with cutscenes were trash and claiming that they played themselves, calling all games that were not PC exclusives garbage.

ditto.

people suddenly seem to have forgotten the endlessly respawning checkpoints, jamming weapons, no prone, bullet sponge eagle eyed enemies inexplicably spotting you from several miles away, malaraia, every single person in the world chasing you to the death every time you stepped foot out of a village, not being able to run for more than a dozen steps, a colour palette that consisted of every shade of brown under the sun and not much else and that's just off the top of my head. f*ckin awful game
