I love stealth in this game. It's fun to do a takedown from above and then drag the guys body to the bushes. Then throw a couple of rocks and take out the rest of the camp. Also you can shoot the locks off the gates of the Tiger pens and then the Tigers just destroy the defense of those little camps.

Yeah I prefered the sniper rifle, I think for that achievement I put a map marker over the enemy camp, and got to around 100 meters(yards w/e) before I started lining up the shot.

If you get the second sight attachment, it shows lines for where to aim depending on how far you are away.

*In a meeting room with the developers*

"hey, let's have cages full of deadly animals at a bunch of these camps so that they can be released and hilarious havoc can ensue!"
"But that doesn't make any sense, why would anyone have.."
"You're fired, gtfo!"

Same here, stealth was absent in Far Cry 2, and they introduced the element with perfection.

I have far cry 2 free from plus. Is it worth giving a try after playing 3?

It's free, it can't hurt.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012 6:38:04 AM PST
Well if you have it for free yeah, try it out. It was a game that I think a lot of people either loved or hated with more people in the hate group. Worst case is you go "no sir, I don't like it" and never touch it again.

Not even remotely playable after playing FC3.

No. Delete it and don't look back. Ever. Especially if you're playing a stealth character as stealth is broken in FC2.

I couldn't deny free.99. i was in the minority of players that enjoyed Far Cry 2, but honestly I don't think I could go back after experience the awesomeness of Far Cry 3!

I HATED Far Cry 2, but all this Far Cry 3 love makes me want it. Will I like 3 if I hated 2?

MrFoxhound says:
I love 3 and I hated 2. I was so apprehensive when the game was installing that I wasn't going to like it. It's amazing.

Glad you're enjoying, Fox. Easily one of 2012's best games.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012 6:46:45 AM PST
It sounds like most people love Far Cry 3 and most people hated 2. I never played 2 so I can't comment but from what I've seen of 2 it looks like a completely different game and the only thing it has in common is a name and that it's an open world shooter.

MrFoxhound says:
2 was supposed to be awesome, but it ended up being a man (the player) dropped into a world of supermen: insanely accurate, able to hear from miles away, and xray vision to see you hiding in the brush. I didn't get very far into the game, but the marketing for the game had me sold from the beginning. I always had FC2 hanging over my head that I should give it another try. I'm glad that FC3 came out because now I don't ever have to give FC2 another shot.

BTW, rain in FC3, have you seen it? It's amazing. I love the way it soaks the dirt roads.

Le sigh. Dishonored was going to be my next game, but you guys just sold me on this one. Too many games!!!

Dishonored is cool, but its got nothing on FarCry 3.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012 6:56:29 AM PST
I didn't quite understand the first camp I took out. I was wondering why all these beats were caged up. Then I think I accidentally shot the door open and saw the Tiger maul 3 guys. What a great feeling to hear the scream and cries knowing you only fired one bullet. Plus it keeps a lot of heat off you while you take out the remaining camp members.

thought sleeping dogs was the best, then i played dishonored........the FC3 came along

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 28, 2012 7:12:00 AM PST
StriderNeo15 says:
I think Sleeping Dogs is better than Dishonored as well.

FarCry 3 probably beats it though, but it's close.

Marvelous says:
i abolsutely loved Sleeping Dogs, and Dishonored finally got a hold of my stealthy heart, but there's no contest when it comes to Far Cry 3 IMO.

MY FC3 is still in wrapper I wont let myself play it till I finally finish plat on Resistance 3, but all the awesome comments and threads here have got me tearing through R3, just finished Superhuman difficulty in like 3 days, have a few other trophies to get than on to FC3.

I really enjoyed Sleeping Dogs and prob would not have purchased it without all the comments and positive impressions here on the VGF so I'm really excited for FC3.

Man, I'm going to have to check out Sleeping Dogs.

It's a TON of fun.

Yeah I 100% Sleeping Dogs, but skip on the first DLC... that was crap.
