Never played a FC game, but I played JC2 a good bit. I was wondering how this game compares to JC2 and if the maps are similar sizes and if the world feels as generic as JC2? Also are the missions are repetitive as JC2?
I think Farcry3 is really good not as polished as JC2 in a lot of areas but good none the less. JC2 I feel looks a bit better at times even both running on ultra. Especially the water in JC2. But at the same time trees look better in Farcry3 so it's a trade off. JC2 seem to have a better balance in color pallet while Farcry3 sometimes looks too bloomy. Only time I felt FC3 had the right color was at night. That's just my opinion
I just got just cause 2 On Steam a few days ago and im having a better time especialy while playing it in 3D with all video settings maxed. I bought JC2 on xbox360 on release day few years back so i'm actually just replaying it and still seems fresh. I even got 100% on all locations as tedious as that was. Doing it all again doesnt feel stale so far.
I'll go back to FC3 eventually. Hopefully by then 3D will be implemented as well as a HUD toggle.
The pure joy of grappling around in Just Cause 2 really makes up for any of it's generic-ness and the best part is you can grapple from the get-go. A problem I have with Far Cry 3 is that the tatau are locked until certain story missions are done and you don't get the wingsuit until you're two thirds through the game. They lock all the cool moves until so late you only get to do ledge take downs like 3 times in the whole game, and I've never seen a double ledge takedown.
Just Cause 2 is a lot more over-the-top. You've got grapples and infinite parachutes and surfing on the noses of planes. The plot is negligible, and the game world is much much much larger than Far Cry 3 or, really, any other game I've ever played save for those with randomly generated "infinite maps". Overall, Just Cause 2 is a lot more fun to play when you're bored and want to kill some dudes, but Far Cry 3 has quite a bit more direction and gave me more of a sense of actually doing something every time I played it.
