    One of my most favorite features in Far Cry 2 was the fact that your gun can rust and latter blow up. I really hope Ubisoft brings back this feature in Far Cry 3.

    Yes, I do like that. It makes the game more realistic.

    I don't know. It's something I could either take or leave. Rusting is natural, but I don't know how natural it is to have a different gun rust on you every day. I don't hate it, but I don't think having it would wow me either. When I played Far Cry 2, I really valued the Golden AK47 because it didn't fall apart on me. With so much other realism in that game, I don't think rusting was something I focused much on. I'd rather deal with wild animal attacks.

    If there are gun shops, I found it annoying (on 360) that the save game feature was in the shop and not in the armory. I would have to buy - load up, go back and save. I really didn't mind the weapons in FC2 - I always carried the Dragonov, PKM, and varied the secondary unless I was going stealth with Dart, MP, Silent Mackarov.

    Yes, degradation was a natural event and something to always think about as part of the over-all planning.

    I'm not looking for too much realism in this game. Keep it normal, and keep it action packed.

    if you want an action packed game, you would be better off with Battlefield 3 or MW3
    Far Cry is unique; it has evolved into something that shares the similar verisimilitude of war: long stretch of boredom follows with brief moments of sheer terror.
    If you have played FC2, you will understand the long drive and wait, then the respawing enemies shower you down with bullets. Far Cry 2 was a good starting point for this kind of value, but many people hate it, so it is going to be dialed down a bit here, but it will still keep the Far Cry formula
    So don't expect a Call of Duty-like campaign where everything blows up around you constantly. In this game, you might die really quick and get frustrated if you don't consider your actions

    I was fine with the rusting and jamming but the gun exploding was not realistic at all. Instead of it exploding maybe it should catch on fire or the firing pin pops out or something.

    I think its already been confirmed that weapon degradation is gone. Prob vehicle degradation too. No malaria either.

    They're getting away from those FC2 features, and back to action based gameplay. Fire is still there though, so we'll prob have the flamethrower too.

    In the 2nd to last paragraph, a developer claims that weapon degradation will not be present in the new game.

    I'm a bit dsiappointed that degradation is gone because it makes FC2 more realistics and stand out in the FPS crowd, but it's not a deal breaker, though.
