Far Cry 3 in September

The Far Cry Website now offers a new "Stranded" trailer from Far Cry 3, the next installment in the first-person shooter series. The NSFW cinematic clip sets the story for the game, and reveals its release date, concluding saying it is due on September 4, 2012, and that you can get four free missions by preordering at GameStop.

I just think people set out to trash games. FC2 was no RAGE or BRINK. People ignore the fact that the original Far Cry had a shit ending with mutants, had unbelievably cheesy dialogue, used poorly spaced checkpoints, had enemies that could shoot through walls... fucking hell, it had a volcano in it! To me Far Cry 2 improved upon the original - better plot, better acting, better scenery, more open gameplay, better AI. The malaria was terrible, the vehicles overused, the vehicle AI was irritating, everyone was an enemy and the respawning was stupid but it was still fun.

I can agree with some of the other stuff you mentioned but lumping everyone together who didn't love FC2 like you did isn't fair. It has literally zero to do with setting out to trash the game, it had very glaring and obvious problems that could severely impact peoples enjoyment of it. It is not difficult to see how it would rub people the wrong way. When people compare it to Rage or Brink they're talking about expectations versus delivery in their context.

Far Cry 2 had some great elements that were offset by some very poor design decisions and as a result it's a very divisive game. I can only hope they learned from their mistakes as Far Cry is one of those franchises always on the cusp of greatness but never quite hitting it.
