    Judging by the screenshots, I think Crysis looks better. In Far Cry 2 they used too much of the BROWN IS REALISTIC!!! ethic. The faces in Crysis suck though. I've never been a fan of either of the games though.

    I don’t think there’s a lot in it to be honest, Far Cry 2 does look a bit brown in places as Assassin pointed out. That doesn’t really bother me to be honest as I think it’s more to do with where the game is set, Far Cry 2 looks like it’s set in dried up desert land where as Crysis was set on a tropical island. I would prefer for green trees to the brown desert though if I had to choose ;)

    Far Cry 2 is apparently a lot more optimised than Crysis so will most likely look better on my 8800GT than Crysis did.

    I think I still need to finish playing Far Cry 1 :D. I have Crysis though. I think when I'm done with my Wii games I can finally use the full capabilities of the PC I built last year :D.

    You could use to get the game for free which had a few adverts in it, Link. However it says the offer has now expired.

    I got it on eBay a few years ago for about £2.50, that would be about $5 if you’re in the USA, I can’t imagine it costs much today.

    I cant wait for Far Cry 3, bring on the FIRE!

    Graphically I think Crysis is far superior. When I first got that game I just went around cutting down trees ;o)

    On crysis I always like picking people up and throwing them into the ocean or throwing them into walls. That way the walls will fall and then I can go in shooting!

    Yeah, Crysis is normally everyones choice. Crysis is just better than farcry. I downloaded and played the demo of farcry, i didn't like it that much. It was ok, but I would never buy it.

    Far Cry 2 for me, I was sold at the map editor. Crysis seems more like a game to relax then to fight on lol.

    FARCRY 2!

    The problem with crysis is all the abilities you have sort of ruins it?

    Farcry 2 is just a normal man running around with guns blowing up africa with some of the most realistc graphics so far!

    Looks and Sounds Incredible :)

    Were not talking about Farcry, were talking about Farcry 2 - Theres a huge difference, especially if you're judging gameplay/graphics.


    Farcry 2, because it IS more "graphically intense", Crysis is already becoming pretty outdated (See Grand Theft Auto 4, Alone in the Dark 5)
