just for anyone who buys this here is a heads up if your running windows 7, to play farcry you will need to download this ( http://www.shacknews.com/file/6847/far-cry-64-bit-patch ) and make sure you extract it to the steam folder

FarCry 2 is utterly terrible.

Good deal for this game, I loved playing it on my Xbox 360 and might buy it on my PC to give my GTX580 a bit of a workout :)

Voted hot!
#7
and far cry one is one of the best games ever.

just bought the pack, even though I have Far cry in the other room. good to have it on steam: bin the discs!

Steam have got to stop it with these endless deals - they're damaging my bank account.

*RESIST*

No, I failed. They're in my games library now.

Both games are really good fun if you just play the the multiplayer.

Far Cry 2 isn't terrible, it just gets monotonous after a while. For £3.74 it'll give you at least a few hours of enjoyment, probably closer to double figures. Well worth a punt. And I've recently been play Far Cry (on Windows 7) and it's still a great game :D
#12
Woop woop, Not a bad game for an unbelievable price. Runs ultra high on my GT 420M :)

Heat Added

The map editor on FarCry was brilliant back in the day. Aaahh memories :-D Great deal. Heat.

Why? Shouldn't Steam be providing up-to-date patches for the games automatically anyway?

The original Far Cry was something really special. One of the best games ever.
#16
Great price.

For some reason I never played the first one so may get that as its so cheap. I didnt think Far Cry 2 was as bad as people made out, could get a bit monotonous at times but on the whole I enjoyed it.
#17
I didn't like 2 on the xbox at all, but I can see how some might like it, never played the first one though
#18
just bought far cry 2. decent :D

i found it easier just to close and restart steam after the initial game download, as then steam just auto downloads the patch 64bit then.
#21
Far cry 2 was a good idea but poorly executed. just a little more work on the story and gameplay would of made a really special game. Never played the 1st one properly.
#22
Farcry 1 - brilliant

Farcry 2 - not so much, got quite boring

I have the first but good deal i guess.
#23
Seems to be more exp in IRE :(

FC2 is possibly the worst game I have played in a long time.
Poor A.I.
Thin on story.
Driving about for hours on end.
Enemy's not knowing how to die from a head shot, or any other shot.
Very repetative.
Looks good on paper, but just a massive fail!

...check this, I was given it for free too! I wish they didn't.

While I do agree with the fact that it is not the best of games but it is fun to visit now and again for even just for the fire phyics. Also it brought some common sense to the gaming industry like wind physics and not forgetting shooting the ammo crates to kill loads of people around you.

I know a lot of people did not complete the game because it did get boring after a while but when your running around with a flamethrower and burning lots of people, it just gives you a small smerk of statisfaction on your face.

For the price of a kebab and chips I think two games is very much worth it even if you only play it now and again

Far Drive

If I wanted to spend all day in the **** car, I'd get a job as a salesman.

LOL Far Drive. I Like Farcry 2 but you are right there is a lot of driving. However the scenery is nice and it is cheaper than booking a flight to Africa.

We're complaining because it's rubbish. More annoyingly, it could have actually been very good if they hadn't overlooked some crucial aspects like AI, mid-mission checkpoints, and not given your character malaria.

I loved Farcry but didn't like Farcry 2 much.

I think Crysis is what Farcry 2 should have been.

I couldn't agree more, I actually really enjoyed the game. It's great when you need a break from your more fast-paced FPS's, that and the Dunia engine (modified CryEngine) is just visually breathtaking. The main downfall of the game was the constantly respawning enemies at checkpoints... I say bring on Far Cry 3!
#32
The driving was a bit annoying at times, but really isnt that bad if you use the busses well. The other main issue was the respawning at checkpoints, but I just drove through most of them so not really a huge issue, even if it was silly.

The AI in FarCry2 is actually pretty good. Enemies will circle around you and attack from behind at times. Enemies become hostile if you point your weapon at them, if you bump into them too many times etc... In addition, enamy reactions to you will change based on your notoriety. Eventually they back away saying they are "Not looking for trouble". a lot of the rest of your comments however, I do agree with.

Far Cry 2 isn't terrible, it just gets monotonous after a while. For £3.74 it'll give you at least a few hours of enjoyment, probably closer to double figures.


Fully agree with this statement.

This is how I sum up the game:

Pros:
- Fairly expansive world
- Good for hiding in foliage / stealth attacks
- Realistic fire spread
- decent AI

Cons:
- Very repetetive
- Lots of driving
- Poor ending
- Story flags quite a bit in the middle
