    the problem was not that it was sandbox, but everything almost instantly reset to default the moment you were 10 meters away. so what you did had no effect. imagine skyrim if everything respawned 30 seconds after you killed it.

    Yeah thats a huge issue, but I would hope that obvious of a mistake wasn't made again. Sandbox games are all about effecting the world, it's what makes them cool.

    Dylans mod addresses your complaints, that doesn't mean the game isn't somewhat tedious though...ie, IMO, it takes way too long to get the best weapons.

    Far Cry 1 was amazing. Far Cry 2 was okay, but got bored of it quite fast. They should have named the game something else, not FC2. Hopefully the 3rd sticks to the original style.

    I pre-ordered this game off GMG, $32.95, a steal at the time. Can't believe GMG offers such good pre-orders once in a blue moon, no one else does, not even Amazon.

    Nice, and I bought the 9700 PRO. For it's time, what a great card it was. Though, I do not remember which AMD Athlon CPU I had.

    I bought the 9800 pro for Doom 3 and then out of no where Far Cry came out, and I picked it up at Walmart. At the time no other game looked as good as Far Cry, and I needed something to hold me over till Doom 3 came out. I was not disappointed! Far Cry was and still is a great game. :toast: FC2 wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. The ship wreck in FC was awesome. I can remember just cranking up the settings and looking at the metal walls filled with rust and the lighting made it even better. I was running a 3000xp OC to a 3200xp with 2x 1gb DDR400 on a EPoX Nforce2 Ultra 400 motherboard (I still have the screwdriver set and heatsinks it came with).

    IMO there was far more wrong with FC2 than the insta-spawn checkpoints. That was only a problem if you adhered to extremely repetitive methods of navigation, eg: driving through them every time in broad daylight.

    In getting creative and varying my nav methods, I actually enjoyed the game more. Between buses, boats, sneaking afoot and driving through fast at night with headlights off, I always had different ways I could effectively deal with them without getting bored just traveling around the same way every time.

    To this day the most common complaint is still the checkpoint spawns, despite the crap story being every bit as much if not more of a problem, and one with no workarounds.

    A bit into FC2 I forgot all about the story and why I should care, there was no sense of progress except unlocking new guns and I just started faffing around with the IED's

    Eventually I'd clear the first half of the game and run into the Jackal again who sounds like a guy who has been given a book containing dialogue and told to start reading. Part 2 was usually when I couldn't be bothered with the game anymore

    lol same here and I've played it/tried to play it 3 times! (I just can't give up finishing games) And 3 times that I just couldn't continue past the beginning of part 2, after realizing it would be more of the same.

    The game had potential. When you start playing it, it looks like a very good game and you can't understand other people's compaints, until you do. I started it a second time and thought "why did I hate this game again?", until I remembered. And yeah I did it a 3rd time too. Pure masochism. I don't know why I put me through that kind of shit. I just like to finish all games, so when I don't have other games or I'm tired of them I try some of the old ones that I never finished. Often times I don't have the saves (reformat), so I start over. Like I said pure masochism, or I'm naive and I think that 2 years have completely changed my perspective.

    How all of this affects FarCry 3... it does look great... but I'm going to wait for a Steam sale, so that it doesn't hurt me if I have to stop playing half through...

    Oh god please don't make it another "drive to the other side of the island, kill someone, then come back" rinse and repeat game. Ufff FarCry2 was awful.
