Brilliant Game

got this last week on the PC for £24.99 in Tesco

terrible let down... i sold it straight away... poor gta in the jungle... trophies are the only good thing about it (PS3). I'd save your money for Dead Space, a must. Fallout 3 would be another one more worthy of buying.

So you didn't play the 1st game? Driving about has always been a factor for far Cry Games.

yes, on the pc and then the 2nd on the xbox, this is dire! like burnout paradise, it's just gone all open world and naff - you know it's not as good as the others!
#9
nice price!
#10
A good idea poorly executed. After playing it I walked out my front door and marveled at how much more interesting it was than Far Cry 2. Can't fault the price though if you are looking to pick it up.
#11
I've been playing this for a few days now and all I seem to be doing is driving around a jungle doing boring missions with predictable fire fights. Does it get a bit better?

I thought exactly the same! Far too much driving and a complete deviation from the original format which was wicked!

Pants game - also sold mine within 48 hours of getting it!!

Heat added for the price alone.

Ok.... I'll steer well clear of this then or until it hits the bargain basement section. :thumbsup:

Far Cry 2? Apart from the name it's got sod all to with far cry. I don't know what they were thinking when they put this together.

It's all driving everywhere, not fun driving just boring ****** driving. I got to my first 'safe-house' and was told to have a nap! A NAP! This is a first person shooter and I'm lying down, setting my alarm, closing my eyes and having naps!

This is definitely a game designed by committee. 'I think we should have naps in it, I think he should be able to fix cars, I think his guns should jam, I think he should only be able to run 5 yards....etc, etc, etc.' No thought went into whether any of that is fun, just appeared a good idea on paper.

And I didn't have the foggiest idea what the story was supposed to be about.

i'd say this isn't going to be the first big price drop!

Yeah, I was a bit surprised about the nap option. Not normally top of my wish list for in game action.

I think the game is supposed to be about killing "The Jackal"...eventually.

anyway to use the 11% voucher with this?

Is this better than Farcry 1, or are they both the same?

From what I can tell they're completely different. Far Cry 2 you drive around doing inane missions and Far Cry 1 is good.

I ordered a copy yesterday and it arrived today but its not a PAL version.
It is a NTSC-J will this play on a UK Xbox 360?

I just discovered that too - pretty sure NTSC-J works ok on PAL console as I picked up lego star wars 2 cheap that way and that worked fine on mine.

Only prob being, this is a birthday present for my son and can't exactly doublecheck right now.

Bit narked they're selling ntsc-j product without saying so.
Makes it worthless as a trade-in at places like gamestation as they refuse to accept them - I wouldn't mind normally but then normally it would be for me and not my son (and there's no mention on the site that it's not a PAL copy), so hope he likes it so much he doesn't want to trade it in anywhere in the future...

[EDIT] Mailed [email protected]">[email protected] asking them to replace this copy with a 'proper' PAL copy, seeing as they didn't state it was an NTSC-J one they were selling.
Keenly awaiting their response. Could just be an honest mistake, shall wait and see (although can't wait too long with birthday fast approaching)

[SIZE="1"]I notice that they're also selling "Halo 3 Legendary Edition USA NTSC Multi Regional" and that clearly states it's not PAL in the title and "This product is an American NTSC Multi Regional Import." in the description, so they can't say it never said it was PAL when they clearly state on other items when they're not PAL...can they?[/SIZE]
#25
Hmmm, their reply basically says that it will work ok in a PAL machine (which I already knew) and if I'm not happy with this they'll refund.
No mention of an apology that maybe they should point out to people it's not a PAL copy they're selling.
If they'd said beforehand it was NTSC-J then I could have mad an informed decision based on the facts, but instead they should to hide that fact so that they show as the best price in comparison with other retailers.
Suspect I won't be buying from them in the future - at the very least, if I do I'll be assuming the product I'm buying is foreign and/or second hand.
#26
Im tempted by this, can anyone let me know whether I should get it.
I like shooting games and action.
Yes or No?
#27
I was thinking of buying this from here but as someone has now said its ntsc I think ill give it a miss . I am guessing it will be dropping in price soon with the all the new games out or coming out.
#28
Have received another email from customer services stating that they agree the product should be labelled if it is not PAL - "In the future, if we are selling anything other than UK stock it will be detailed on that particular product, especially games that are on offer."

They have also offered to replace my copy providing I send this copy back first. Unfortunately, my son's birthday is tomorrow so I'll have to ask him whether he wants an NTSC-J copy for his birthday or if he wants to wait until a PAL copy replacement arrives.
