I really enjoyed 3 and thought 4 was good. I heard lots of negative things about Far Cry 2, is it as bad as they say it is? From the videos it looks like Far Cry 3, only the gameplay is less forgiving and stupid outposts respawn.

Absolutely.

I personally think its better.

FC3 looks and plays more like a Michel Bay action movie while FC2 feels more brutal and primal.

The explosions are amazing as is the fire effects and the weapons have some proper weight to them. Decimating an outpost with a turret feels glorious.
HOLY ****! What is this? Forged in Gods very flames! Do mine eyes tell me lies? A new Elder Scrolls game?

As someone who played the hell out of it, including what was well over 1000 hours of MP, the slowness of the game is a bit jarring. My only real complaint beyond the normal Outpost crap.

I am hoping it becomes X enhanced sometime in the future.

It's the only one I didn't like in the series, and it's still worth $6.

It seems my favourite entry in the series because it feels like it's own thing instead of Assassin's Creed the FPS, but I played a bit last night and the controls sure take some getting used to.

There's input lag or look acceleration while aiming the really screws up my aim. You let go of the thumb stick and the crosshairs continue to travel for half a second. Unfortunately I couldn't fix it with my Elite controller either.

Still, I loved it when it released so I must have gotten over the aiming at one point.

love the series, but this was the worst for me (even worse than 360's instincts)
the controls were just horrid for me, driving especially.

rented it, but couldn't get through more than a couple hours. it was a chore to play.
want options for xbox to shut down or standby when pressing the guide button? (instead of going through settings)
