PC Xbox 360 PS3

Ubisoft released this new trailer of Far Cry 2, trying to push you guys in America to preorder the game at Gamestop. At least it's a nice way to see some new gameplay footage of the game.

the original FC for the PC was a great game, and FC2 is also looking to be a great game, i really hope it delivers, a definite must buy for me, right up there with fallout 3, LBP and motorstorm 2(all october releases BTW).

The only FC game I played was on 360, I don't even remember which one, but I thought it really, really, really sucked. Maybe it was just one of those bad sequels though. Most series have at least one

This is the true sequal, not the other one.

I see the one released on 360 as a expansion pack of the first, hence there is no "2" on the title.

But I am interested in this game, but I need to know how it feels to aim and shoot because the one on 360 was bad.
A demo on PS3/360 would be very nice.

I'm hoping I have this straight:
"Instincts" was the Xbox version of the Pc version of FarCry, altered for technical reasons.

"Evolution" was the standalone expansion for "Instincts"

"Predator" was essentially "Instincts" and "evolution" in one package, with greatly enhanced graphics and some tweaks and additions here and there; made exclusively for the Xbox360.

Is that correct?

Then we have Crysis (Pc only) made by the original developer, but unable to use the original name, and Far Cry 2 which is a different developer, but by a publisher who bought the rights to the name.

(still not sure which developer made "Instincts")

Almost right, "Instincts" was not an altered port from the PC but a totally different game.

Fucking hell, I hate these shop exclusives! Who ever thought that screwing over the potential buyers that don't have access to a 'gamestop' shop was a good idea?

yeah, that's bullshit.
Don't buy from Gamestop.

After what was said in the trailer, I'm calling this the worst trailer ever produced.

We don't have Gamestop in the Netherlands, so now what??

I'll just download the extra content, as I'm sure it will be available somewhere on the internet for the PC version.. ;)

Different developer, completely disconnected plot, and this is the true sequel? It basically just has the broadest concepts in common.. and well.. a tacked on name. It still looks pretty cool though, I'll probably pick it up if the system requirements are in line with Warheads. If it's any more demanding I'll be pretty disappointed.

Grift, I thought it was a sequal...my bad.
Remember now that Jack Carver isn't even in the game.

Ah well, I hope it plays good.

How about screw you Gamestop, and I'll pre-order from Play.com instead?

Not that Gamestop is running this deal over here anyway though...but if they did it'd surely be as ridiculously priced as their games always are. "Without the extra charge of the Limited Edition." would mean $10-17 more than the standard edition at other retailers. I don't understand how they're still in business with prices like this.

I hope that is footage from the console version as it looks horrible.

Low-res graphics, little evidence of anti-aliasing, etc...

Yuck!

No amount of extra content will make me buy a game at gamestop or eb games.

i dont know why people are complaining about the exclusive offer to gamestop. This is a european site.. the offer is for the americans..so even if you have a gamestop near you odds are that they wouldnt be giving you the same offer.

The vids placed here just as an excuse to let us see more game footage.. the offers moot.

I'm betting eb games (owned by gamestop) will have a similar offer in europe.

Although I agree Gamestop/EB sucks to high hell, this isn't that bad of a deal. It's got those extra missions for the regular price and as a whole is a hell of a lot better than a lame ass "Golden Lancer" as offered for Gears 2 or some other lame thing like an M1 Carbine coupon number for Call of Duty: World at War. Those are some lame preorder offerings.

P.s. I hope the game runs smoother than this trailer though & that people don't go lame rag doll on us like it appeared a baddie did off the jeep when sniped. PLEASE don't be as half ass as Mercenaries 2 is.

Vastly different game but Instincts was based upon the FarCry 1 (PC) story mostly.

Barely enhanced graphics is more like it. They improved the water effect greatly but not a whole lot else.

Crytek sold the Far Cry IP to Ubisoft. Far Cry 2 is being made by internal Ubisoft people, same as FCI/FCIP, but Ubisoft is huge and it's hard to know exactly which people are working on what.

Why do you hope it's the console version? I can see a few points of that video that looked bad, but they probably were done just for the Gamestop promotion. The majority of the video looked amazing, if that's 'yuck' to you, you need to give up videogames.


As far as the promotion itself, I'm getting free shipping from Gamestop.com on this game (one of the daily deals) so I'm pretty satisfied with Gamestop's deals in most cases, even if they are claiming a worrying control over game retail.
