Just added tonight. Still hoping for splinter cell to become BC.
£2.69 is still too expensive.

Far Cry 2 is rubbish.

It's basically your standard Ubisoft generic open world FPS and the only 'features' are these weird inconveniences that they've added. You've got malaria right from the off. So that's good. Your crappy guns will jam on you. Want to see the map? Well, it's an actual paper map that's going to take up the whole screen and get you shot.

On top of that it's set in about 50,000 square miles of absolutely eff all.

There's an airstrip but it's got one rusty, broken plane in it. That's it. Aside from some grass and a few identical enemy encampments, that's it.

Is it BC? Well at this price worth getting even if it's not yet.

Good game, I remember playing this years ago - certainly worth a couple of quid.

Damn, I hammered that game as a kid, so I'll be picking it up. Fun fact, it was made in Newcastle which is nice, because there's where I'm from too!
Heat added for the price. Decent game damaged by constant need for malaria pills.

Best game with the gameplay mechanic of treating your deliberating malaria...

You are totally right. I remember buying this at launch and i actually got a refund in gamestation. Plus you forgot to mention your guns rust after about an hour and become useless and the constant malaria nonsense. Terrible game
Honestly, it's a really rough game but I think that's why I fell in love with it. There are so many things wrong with it mechanics-wise but I played it again on PC this year and found myself once again absorbed by the beautiful and immersive and gritty world. Once you learn to live with the jamming guns (which I kind of liked), the enemies that WILL NOT leave you alone and the hilariously fast voice acting (I guess they were in a rush to finish it) I found it quite an enjoyable and stripped down Far Cry experience.

Dude this game is sick! Flawed but I absolutely love it
If in no rush to play this, id wait. Can see this being free with gold close to when Far cry 5 is out.
And this game has not aged well at all. Its all very early iterations of the mechanics and ideas of the open world far cry games out now. I foiund it very boring to play nowadays.
Noone mentioned malaria yet?! If you play it you will be cursing...
you can buy it from CEX for £1.50, I dont get how £2.69 is a good deal, is it cos you can play it on XO1?

Agree. Hated it. First game was superb, this was naff. Hated the system shock 2 style baddies reappear after you've killed them routine.

Now blood dragon, that was a fun game.

I believe it’s because £2.69 is a digital copy, the other is physical some people who Game share or who are lazy that don’t want to get up to put a disc in prefer digital haha
Does this still have the bug where it crashes after ~70% completion? Loved the game, best of the Far Cry 2+ series in my opinion because it was raw and difficult (in FC2 you genuinely hide from armoured Land Rovers, in the later ones you just face them off), having never seen the end would be up for another play through

I loved the first one but this one was so poor that I have never played far cry since......did it get better in the more recent releases?

Probably should be on GWG tho'!

Your comment though, reminded me of another game like that from around the same time. "Kane & Lynch Dead Men"!

Everyone seemed to hate that game due to the game-play/mechanics, but despite that, I thought it was a great game and thoroughly enjoyed it, even if it was a bit unforgiving at times.

Pretty sure Trevor from GTA5 was based on the unhinged character Lynch from K&L as well.
Backwards compatability is a joke on xbox one. They just keeping adding crap games nobody wants to play. Check out the most requested games list and see how many of them are BC...literally none.

Because they will no doubt be "remasterd/remade" and sold for profit, can't actually blame Microsoft for that one

3 was good but at that point we were in the whole Ubisoft: The Game pattern. Do you like AssCreed? Do you like Watch Dogs? Do you like the new Ghost Recon? It's that. Far Cry 4 even more so. 3 probably had more character.

1 was the best.
Disc is 50p or something in CeX second hand - but for DL key and BC it's still a fairly decent price.

Personally; the campaign was a total pile of but the multiplayer is still my favourite Far Cry multiplayer. Heat added.

Agreed! I hated the campaign. Buuuut on the other hand the multiplayer mode is definitely worth a crack.

Would love a proper 4K HDR remaster of blacklist on the One X, or just any splinter cell for that matter!

Regardless of whether you personally think it's crap sunshine, it was the most requested back compat game.. and it was added. So it makes your point invalid as well as childish.
