I'm gonna restart the game tomorrow to see if that's a bug or actually on purpose, if so, I'll wait for a new patch.
It's on purpose... As I summarized it for another forum:

Summary of Far Cry 2:
Go from A to B, clearing all checkpoints in-between.
Go back to A, re-clearing all those checkpoints that have respawned their enemies.
Go from A to C, clearing all checkpoints in-between.
Go back to A, re-clearing all those checkpoints that have respawned their enemies.
Go from A to D, clearing all checkpoints in-between.
Go back to A, re-clearing all those checkpoints that have respawned their enemies.

A piss-poor attempt to make a free roam game which requires to travel back and forth like a taxi driver while doing "missions"...
Not impressed at all...

Game runs here insanely well. SLI works with 178.24 in this game. Also there is no mouse lag problem here, i don't have loaded logitech drivers for g5.

I agree, game is stupid. Too bad. I guess nothing is close to Crysis nowdays as far as 3D Shooter. I might go play Virtua Tennis 3. That has been fun.

Downloading right now from Steam. From reading here, I'm now a bit apprehensive about the game already. Doesn't seem that great after all the hype. Seems it needs a patch already. If the respawning is like mentioned here, it's probably going to get irratating. I don't like games that continuously respawn. Kills the whole realism. I hope it's not like that. Getting close to playing now. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a FarCry wannabe like that POS SOF Payback was.

Its fairly fun so far, kinda like a GTA game more focused on the shooter aspects. One problem I have is the game seems to crash after about an hour or so of play, really pisses me off. I'll probably wait for a patch to play more, having lost my progress twice now.

Heres a few of the start of the game with 2 4870X2s 8xAA 16xAF Max settings. also only 3.5ghz so others with slower CPUs could better compare.

Pics were taken with Fraps Jpeg so sorry for bad quality pics.



















Looks great. I dont know why people are giving the game such a hard time. I like it so far.

Don't give the haters so much credit. They appear at every release.

Because people like to complain, and are never satisfied.

I just played a few hours of the game and loved every minute of it. The graphics are amazing to me, especially out in the middle of nowhere. The gunplay is great, the missions are fun and the weapon upgrade/purchase system seems cool. Seems like there are a ton of missions as well, and tons of extra side quests.

I haven't had a huge problem with "respawning" but it can be somewhat annoying to deal with random aggressors while on a mission. Still, this is nothing new for open world games, pretty much all of them have random enemies in the wilderness in addition to the mission specific enemies. Maybe it's more noticeable in FC2 because there is no real fast travel, and secretly deep down people like fast travel, even though they complain about it breaking immersion. For those who did not notice by the way, there is a side mission where you have to "recon" all of these roadside enemy nests... might earn you something cool to stop and do so after killing the offenders.

I did a mission in the "oasis" and it was visually stunning... I guess the border of the play area is endless desert, like Far Cry's endless water? Cool stuff. I did another mission for an arms dealer (flashbacks to STALKER in the look of some interiors) where I had to destroy a convoy... I put a missle in the side of the middle truck, then watched as the rear truck rammed into the burning rubble and blew itself up, followed by the lead truck trying to ram me, but hitting my vehicle instead, resulting in IT blowing up along with my vehicle. All in all I beat the mission with one rocket...

Anyway, good times. Take off the negative nancy hats and enjoy this amazing game (this does not apply to those with technical issues).
