Thanks Maban yet again, Awesome work buddy :respect: :respect: You're killing the giveaways lately :toast:

Out of the pack, FC2 is the runt. It's the most repetitive, boring, and all around "eh" compared to the others. But it does have some fairly pretty graphics and scenery.

FC3 was terrific really, good enough to warrant another play through as soon as I finished. Wasn't perfect but fun, looks good. It really improved from FC2, took what was wrong with it and fixed it.

FC1 is a classic, and I think I'll reinstall later to give it another go through for old time's sake :)

As for FC3 BD, I've played like 10 minutes of it, so I can't really comment much, but I do look forward to getting back into it, for Michael Ben's sake :laugh:
