    Default Anyone else purchased FarCry 2

    Having recently upgraded my PC yet again, thought I'd treat myself in the week to a couple of new games.
    FarCry 2 and Brothers In Arms Hells Highway, the later title seems very good BTW. I like these war type role playing games so have quite a collection of them, all the COD series and stuff like that.

    Dont know why I bought FarCry 2, but saw it in Morrisons the other day and couldn't resist. I run all my games at 1920x1200 as I have quite a large Dell monitor and the graphics in Farcry 2 are really impressive indeed and the game runs smoothly. Games these days are really coming on, though your m/c does need a bit of grunt to play them well.
    In contrast to Brothers in Arms Hells Highway which does not even prompt you to put a cd code in when installing(even though the code is on the game booklet) which I thought very strange, never had that happen before, FarCry 2 security is the other extreme, it has to be validated on line before you can play it, it takes a snapshot of your hardware similiar to microsofts validation routine and in the event you later sell the game, you have to un-install it from your system, which also at the same time De-registers or un-validates it with UBISoft so the new owner can play the game.
    Certainly seems an effective deterent to those that pirate games, and should help to prevent piracy which will benefit the gaming companies.
    Anyway... certainly a couple of games worth buying.

    Re: FC2 meant only to be a sequel by name, not by GP.

    Not tried the online play yet, as I did'nt want to get too carried away with it until I had finished Band of Brothers HH which I started playing last week. FarCry 1 was good but they really have improved the graphics a lot... like watching a film.

    Not sure if Morrisons price of 24.99 is the normal price or not, did'nt seem to bad a price to me though.

    I'm buying another PS3 at the end of the month when they bring out the 128gig version bundle which will be £319 with 4 games which seems a good deal, I used to have one of the 40gig versions but passed it on to one of the grandchildren a few months ago. I dont really need one, but, though one gets older it doesn't mean you no longer want your toys.

    The PS3 and the Xbox 360 are good, but ideally you need the optional keyboard for some games to get the best out of them, which the PC already has of course.

    I was very tempted to buy it, but I don't agree with the required spyware it comes with, so I didn't bother buying it. Search for "SecuROM" on Google. I still play Far Cry 1 the odd time.

    Wikipedia has a good page on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Securom

    I was a big fan of the original Far Cry but the online gaming experience was nothing but trouble. Firewall issues, server problems and a lack of any form of helpful support from ubisoft to get things going put me right off ubisoft games. I don't deny that the single player and multiplayer (On the odd occasion that it did work) was a great game but this only left me more frustrated as this game is much better playing online.

    Hopefully things have changed but I will remain a cynic until such time as I see a Ubisoft game playing without hitch online.

    FC2 does look good and I also fancy a new game. Which would you buy if you were just getting one?

    With regards to the anti-piracy measures, I can't help thinking this just makes it harder for the paying customer to install.
    I would imagine the cracked version is already available on the internet and is probably easier to install than the original!

    I got it on friday for the 360, only played it for about half an hour as i also bought Fable 2 which is a fantastic game..
    Far cry 2 (on the 360 aswell) has the map editior and a lot of maps made and uploaded by other gamers, which is good as playing the same ol maps all the time gets old pretty fast...
