Hi Guys!!!

I want to play Far Cry. I found that there are two parts of FC, i.e FC 1 (2004) and FC2 (2008). Which one should I play first? FC1 or FC2??? Because I know that FC1 will have old graphic and I hope outdated graphic wouldn't make it bore. Do both parts have any connection???
And it just came into my knowledge that FC3 is coming, but don't know when it will come out for PC???

Neither have a connection. I'd say try out FC1 first.

FC 1 of couse! It's the best FPS.

FC1 and FC2 have no connection. But I would try FC1 first because this one looks a lot like FC1 so far.

Shame you missed the steam Ubisoft week - they had both games on sale http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I would say try both, since FC3 looks like a mix of both from what I have seen..

The release date for Far Cry 3 has not been announced yet, but when it is, it will be posted here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Does anybody still play FC1?

I bought it on the 360, but I haven't taken it out of the plastic yet.
I probably should, so I know what to expect in part 3 huh?

Keep it wrapped as an E-Bay collector's sale. Once you've played open-world FC2 with its graphics, you'll be underwhelmed with FC1 and the linearness. It'll seem ancient.

many people are confused FC1 with FCI. FC1 was the very first FC released on PC only in 2004, whereas FCI was the first FC came out on console (Xbox 2005).

I played FC2 first, love it and then I tried FC for PC and FCI for Xbox. FC1 looks awesome when it's out in 2004 but it's outdated in 2011, in terms of both graphics as well as gameplay. FCI is terrible IMO. I hate the health packs system. When 1 guy spots me, the rest immediately shoot at me and it's very, very easy to die in a few seconds. (FCIP was even worse).

One of the best thing about FC2 is the "cat and mouse" gameplay style. FCI gameplay was like other COD style FPS's but much worse that I say it's broken. The AI n FC2 was very realistic, very funny, and their behaviors are very complex. I hope the AI in FC3 is at least as good as FC2, if not better.

FC1 and FC2 are for different types of gamers. In FC1 you need a lot of FPS skills to survive, you have to use different tactics, to plan your each step. In FC2 itís impossible to die and FC2ís world is much more monotonous.

And FC1 has nothing in common with COD-style games (including Crysis). Strictly speaking COD is not a shooter at all. COD is a ďdeath marchĒ, you donít need to kill enemies, you need to reach a trigger to stop enemy respawn, and enemies spawn right in front of you.
In contrast in FC1 each location looks like a complete world, controlled by natural laws, not by triggers and scripts. This is what I like about FC most of all.

@Shade
I just got my semester exam finished. So I was out of any "entertainment" activities.
I'll keep watching for the release date of FC3.

@Ilovepho
That's why I asked it here. I've seen some FC1 walkthroughs on Youtube and they made me bore. Definetly FC1 is outdated in 2011. I am happy that FC2 and FC1 don't have any connection regarding story.

Awe, is it really that bad?
I have FC2 and love that game. I was just going to try to get some games going on the classic that I've never played before it comes out.

Whoa Whoa Whoa no connection between the two??????? No way. C'mon the Jackal=Jack Carver in fact he mentions if you got all the tapes that back in the navy they used to smuggle guns. What did Jack carver do? That's right he traded guns as well, both start with a J, both went to a navy, both a impossible to kill, both of them wear a red shirt. See after FC 1 Jack had to run away somewhere to start a new life and where else than Africa if you don't wanna get caught.

Think about it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sorry for double posting but is it me or am I right that Jason Brody sounds like Jack Carver. Check out the E3 trailer in the beginning when he says "gunshots" right before he zooms in with the camera and Jack Carver from FC instincts

There great games but the far cry games aren't related in story there related because of an island and the open enviroments and map editors but basicly the way to choose your own way to tackle the objective!
so u dont need to get em to buy fc3 but i would reccomend getting them all!
and also the release is in 2012 but no confirmed month or day.

@TheRuski1
Plz dont create any spoiler, as there are many who didn't play it. Just tell whether it has any connection or not, that's it.

@EvilTacos48
That's why I am going to play it. I like open world environment. Although I always want to play Open World in third person view (like AC) but I guess FC deserves to play.

I think when someone joins a forum and four out of five of their posts are linking to another site offering a deal, we can safely assume it's spam!

I don't mind paying for games btw. I got 100's of hours of play out of FC2... I got more than my money's worth.

Previous post was in response to a spammer we had on the forum, not asifah30's post.

I would reload my FC ( 1 ) back on my hard drive

But I'm afraid of the monsters. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif that will show up soon after these pics.

So I'll just stay with FC2 where the monsters can't get me and I can make things dissapear. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Naw, just kidding as FC is a good game ( even if you don't like mutants ), but I think FC2 is a lot better.

Try them both. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I will stay with FarCry 2 too because it hasn't got monsters. It is set more on "realism". FarCry 3 looks like it will offer the best of both games but I certainly thinks if they would have made some tweaks on FarCry 2 it would be perfect. They see the potential in the game and that's what drives me to buy this game. The story is also very interesting. It's something completely unique I think. The word "Insanity" as the theme of the story. Very interesting. The producer also looked very proud of what the whole team has accomplished with the new FarCry. He looked like that he really wanted everybody to try out the demo.
