I've played over 300 hours of FC3 then I played around 250 hours of FC4 plus a few replays of primal.... since then I've been on several other games but all the talk in here has just got me wanting that FC feeling again... I reinstalled FC3 and I had forgotten just how awesome this game is....

I recently re-bought the game as well as it is now backward compatible on xbone... For me it's a bit harder to go back after playing 4, I definitely started to notice all the quality of life improvements 4 made over 3. 3 is still great fun though!

I've been playing a lot of FC4 co-op and fancied a changed. The Characters and dialogue in 3 is really good, they all have their moments, the 1st half is pretty much Dennis, Vaas Willis and Citra but I like Buck, Hurk and Sam... they really fill in with some great attitude and remarks :)

I still play Far Cry 2 (with realism mod) because it's the only one in the series i really enjoy from start to finish. Far cry 3? Only good for the first half (and not even that much), the rest is a barren and rushed island.

I remember appreciating though that it looked decidedly different than the first island. The north of kyrat didn't look as different from the south in FC4...

Same here, reinstalled FC3 and FC2 and been playing both to get the blood flowing (so to speak).
Also still play FC4 but I agree with the comment above, the second half of FC2, 3 and 4 all seems a bit rushed, I fact I prefer Act 1/2 of FC4 the best, hunting all the animals you need as well as the towers/outposts to get the rewards.

A bit of trivia, I have got to Karma Level 6 by the end of Act 1, really helps playing early with the Shredder :rolleyes:

I did not notice any difference in pacing or quality in Far Cry 2 second half. Why do you think that's the case?

Actually just playing that again now and may have been a little unfair to include 2 in that comment. Was meaning more towards the end when you start knocking off the leaders, just seems to go rather quick but I guess when the leaders are done there's not much left but the Jackel.
