I'm a huge advocate for Far Cry 2, it's just amazing in my opinion, BUT, it's not a game for everyone.
Far Cry 2 is part tech demo, part masochistic gameplay experiment (it's designed to ruin your fun at points) and part art game, all rolled into one and sold under the guise of a AAA shooter. It's a very rough game, that provides some of the most intense and immersive gaming yet created, but at the cost of some glaringly obvious design flaws. If that doesn't sound appealing to you, then move on.
If you're used to fast paced games and want something like Call of Duty, Halo, or even Far Cry 3, then don't play Far Cry 2. It's slow paced and meant to be played with a more methodical approach. Essentially it's designed to be somewhat of a "thinking man's" shooter. I don't want you to play it and expect one thing, end up with what the game actually is and then start hating on it like everyone else who hates on without understanding its purpose.
I've been having issues connecting to any sort of online game with Far Cry 4 (multiplayer or co-op). When I try to join a quick match on multiplayer, it never connects with anyone and puts me in my own lobby to allow other players to join (spoiler alert: no one ever joins). I've had this game since a few weeks after release and I've never connected to anyone.
I know there have been a lot of issues with the online component, but I figured the dev team would have rectified them by now.
Does anyone else have similar issues or find a way to connect? Or know if the dev team has even fixed all the problems? Otherwise, the game is fully updated and I have no issues getting online with my other titles.
@edwardsmateresa Far Cry 2 is the only game in the series I would consider a (almost) masterpiece. It’s combat system is one I wish more games would utilize today, with guns that jam and occasionally break. The use of a tangible map adds to immersion. Cars are easy to break down and slow to fix, and the constant fear of malaria means you’ll always need to keep pills at your side throughout the game. The only weak spot is the story, but IMO aside from 3 (and maybe blood dragon) I really don’t enjoy far cry stories.
Depends on what you’re looking for, the game is brutal in difficulty, you’ll die of malaria, your favorite gun will break beyond salvage, it’s infuriating, but it grounds the game in a harsh, appreciable realism. It does not play like an arcade esc. shooter like the games that come after, it’s slow, and it is precise.
Is anyone else having their game take longer to load after upgrading to windows 11 or having it freeze after turning wifi off and on to get it to say online and load? As I wrote that it unfroze after 2-3 minutes. Is it just me?
It also doesn't matter if something is running or not. It happens even if I just have the PC sitting on the desktop with nothing running.. If I have a video or game running, it happens then too. As long as I'm not actively inputting something with an input device such as the keyboard, mouse, or a gamepad it locks up. If I pause a game to go get something to eat it's frozen when I come back, if I'm watching a video and get up to go to the bathroom it's locked up when I get back, it doesn't matter if azar I pause whatever it is or leave it running. No input from me, means a hard freeze after a few minutes without fail.
