I'm torn between the two and can't make up my mind on which to get. So which will it be for you? Only one can survive! Farcry 2 or Left 4 Dead?
Your opinions please
I'm getting Far Cry 2. Open world and all that. Left 4 Dead is more of a squad shooter, but the recent Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway satisfies me there quite well
Left 4 Dead looks absolutely my cup of tea, can't wait to get some of my online buddied together for some games of that, gonna be hilarious fun. Farcry 2 looks like it's enjoying some good reviews but what is it bringing to the table that hasn't been done before? I might end up getting Farcry 2 but I'm not sure why I would want to get it over Crysis Warhead.
Well, Far Cry 2 is more of an open world where you go where you like getting various side missions, etc. It's sort of RPG-ish in that sense (you also get 'money' - really blood diamonds, to buy stuff as far as I understand). Warhead/Crysis are single path story driven shooters, pretty much.
Far Cry 2, hands down. Burn entire enemy camps with a flamethrower, a handy savannah and a favorable wind? I'm sold.
If Impulse was offering these as pre-order, I would be tempted. But only with boxed copy deals as part of the mix, otherwise I`ll stick with retail acquisition.
Far Cry 2`s recent 'tanker target' gameplay video was particularly impressive. Looking forward to it.
Left 4 Dead seems more like a gamers-game to me. I'm going to get it i think.
Hm, let me think. Far Cry 2 is pure Eye Candy while Left 4 Dead is a Valve game, which mean a nice single player mode.
Okay, that won't work lets take a closer look. Far Cry 2 uses SecoROM which mean it is death for me. Left 4 Dead uses steam which lead to the same.
Who says Far Cry 2 is pure eye candy? The least you could do is read up on it
Far Cry is... er... far from just eyecandy. It's a sandbox shooter. I love sandbox shooters. I get to be creative AND blow stuff up! Anyway, the game makes some very interesting moves forward where user experience and immersion is considered. I don't know of any other game where you have to dig out shrapnel from your leg with a knife or set your dislocated shoulder after you crash through a hut full of bad guys with a jeep.
Farcry2 has the same stupid limited activations and online authentications as Spore, Warhead , Mass Effect, etc.
Pitty, seemed a good game.
What about it? Any chance to swing a pre-order boxed copy deal via Impulse on Far Cry 2 and or Left4Dead, ala Sins and Demigod?
We don't sell boxes of non-Stardock products, sorry.
Crap. Roger that.
Ubisoft has used StarForce and limited activations - in other words, it's told me it does not want my $50. It even has this on the Steam version - an insult.
Oh, and the activation with the servers doesn't seem to work always, judging from angry posts in the official forum.
DRM never works as intended. If I were the companies that made the games, I'd be suing Sony over Securom not doing anything but pissing off my customers. Two different people I know are playing Far Cry 2 - one on the Xbox360 and one on the PC - and I'll give you a hint - their version doesn't cause them any problems, because they don't have DRM on them.
