    At £3.74, I'm getting both. The only objection I had with Far Cry 2 was the respawning, other than that, I really enjoyed just blowing everything up and I found that the engine was/is very optimised.

    Oh yeah, I'm deffinitely picking up Far Cry 1. Already have 2, and I thought it was a decent game. I remember I was really impressed with the lighting and shadows when it came out.

    Great, you get FC2 for 5 bucks, i have to pay 7,5 EUR. Which makes it exactly twice as expensive. Ugh. Still, i bought it before i've seen your price...

    buying far cry 1 for sure. 2 can go to hell, 1 is still awesome and worth a replay on max graphics.

    :(

    Is this REALLY true? I find that when most people say this about a game, it really means the the second doesn't give the same EXPERIENCE, but if you've never played the first either, it is best to just play the 2nd

    Other times, it means they are practically 2 completely different games, and they enjoyed only the first etc etc

    I've decided to buy Far Cry 2 anyway because of the scenery itself. I love Africa and savannah locations. I know i wasn't the best game but i'll try getting the best out of it like i do in all open world games. Just exploring around.

    far cry 2 is 100% a different game. nothing in common other than they're semi-realistic FPS shooters.

    So what exactly have the ubisoft games been this week? I keep forgetting to look. I checked when it first started and it was FarCry and Im looking again and its FarCry. Am I missing something?

    First day was the Prince of Persia series, if memory serves, but most Ubisoft titles are 33% off all week, even though some of them may be purchased for even less when they feature as a daily special.
    CrAsHnBuRnXp and yogurt_21 say thanks.

    The BIA games were OK, but too slow paced to suit me, and the controls are absolutely craptastic. Far Cry 2 was worth it, but yeah it has absolutely NOTHING to do with Far Cry 1, not even close. Shouldn't even share the same name.

    I'm surprised UBISoft has enough games to make it through a full week of sales. Never considered them to be that great...

    far cry 2 is a terrible game apart from the nice graphics and setting

    EDIT: Brother in Arms Hells Highway is terrible, the shooting mechanics are broken and it heavily relies on scripting. For example i know a man is upstairs but nothing happens till i start to go up the stairs.

    I dont like getting malaria in the game and i dont like the repetitive gameplay, cleared out a camp fuck it because they all respawn again anyway.

    i was just bored as it wouldn't let me skip the intro :banghead: - i've been playing arcade style games like tekken and guitar hero lately as well as online fps just as i don't have to put up with poorly made cinematic's -i can put up with good ones in other games but i didn't like waiting 15minutes without doing anything - that's what movies are for

    After spending 2 hours trying to get anywhere(and failing miserably),i realise why its been nearly a year since i last played it...
    I do like the game,but i prefer it in my memory more than when i am actually playing it
