Far Cry 2 details vs Far Cry 5

100620 ratings | 3153706 views
How FC2 holds up 10 years later. FC5 has its own attention to details that FC2 doesn't have, this comparison doesn't mean FC5 has nothing to show. Both games run under a different version of the Dunia engine (Ubisoft-modified CryEngine). If you don't know which game is which, Far Cry 5 always cuts before Far Cry 2, clips fade in when it's just another example from the same game. Recorded on PC, ultra settings.

What's missing: - FC2: Rain, there is no dynamic weather in FC5 https://youtu.be/j08tlgG4l8Y - FC5: You can fire through walls with armor piercing ammo https://youtu.be/4cVk73Iy_yg - FC5: Large ammo boxes explode https://youtu.be/pZfL5Y8qjq0 - FC2: There is a golden AK-47 variant, it is less prone to corrosion https://youtu.be/xBhrgb4A0jE

traci beachel far cry 5 does look like shit though, they literally dumbed down the graphics and physics effects so that it would be easier to run on more consoles lmao. Far cry 4 for example was miles ahead of far cry 5 in terms of graphics. Stop being a dumb cunt fan boy and accept it, jesus lmao
Crowbcat you don’t need ap rounds to shoot through walls only some and ap does more damage through walls

Crowbcat FC2 is way better than FC5 for me

That is very lazy and very embarrassing man. You would think that farcry5 would top them all and be one of the best first person shooters\survival games. This just makes me want to buy fc2. And why would they get rid of the rist twisting and unique quick heals too

I think that details like fire after bazooka were inecesaris and dont was good. Its like you have A in the exam but that dont means that you have to be as good every time

Not many specific changes actually. Now try to compare 2008 and 1998 games, that's the real evolution in many ways.

Farcry 5 has a great story and an amazing array of guns; but Ubisoft just doesn't take care of the small details like this anymore.
le mattzoR (1 day ago)
omg far cry 5 is absolute shit
le mattzoR why? Because it doesn’t have details far cry 2 has? The open world is fun, it had tons of its own details, and the overall atmosphere is awesome. Don’t call a game shit when you haven’t played it and have barely watched videos on it.

Molotov it’s pretty hard to enjoy. Gets super tedious and repetitive.

Far Cry 2 is still boring as shit tho. Maybe if the map was smaller but I'd pick 3, 4 or 5 anyday of the week. Far Cry 2 like Crysis is fun to dick around with with both as a whole are pretty bland.

I loved Far Cry 2, no Far Cry thus far can touch that game. But definitely remember people that FC2 had it's issues as well, like the encampments respawning after eliminating them and the malaria component was very annoying as well. Plus in FC2 it was funny that just tightening that one bolt on the engine magically fixes the car, while in FC5 using a blowtorch on the hood cover magically fixes the car. I really miss the attention to detail video games had a decade ago, this has unfortunately been sacrificed for better textures and graphics. But I much prefer the attention to detail that games used to get. Nothing got you raging more than a gun jamming in the middle of a gun fight, but I considered that a good problem. Because in FC5 guns just work forever requiring no maintenance other than buying more ammo or finding more ammo. If you would have shown this video 10 years ago when I was 16, I would have thought you were pulling my leg.
It should be ПКМ, not PKM.
Are you sure that Ubisoft made FC 5?

thx you saved my money.
Vanessa but.. why? Why not look at the dozens of other videos posting about the game? Why go onto a video and not buy a game because it doesn’t have details. Hell, you won’t notice them anyway,

It still tickles me that they remember that backblast is a thing in Far Cry 2. Also, that feel when you can't save your downed buddy. ;_;
Julio Sotomayor (3 days ago)
To everyone wondering why: FC1 and FC2 were developed for the PC, whereas FC3-5 were developed for Console specs. This is why they degraded.

This is the fault of console development. Sigh.

Question: Does Far Cry 3 have the same characteristics that Far Cry 2 was shown to have? Or did you take things away?

Michel Gärtner (3 days ago)
@Crowbcat thats when they start to "just make a game" for some $$ instead of loving the produkt same goes for GTA Titles... GTA San Andreas for example it had sports u could get fat or super muscles depending on how you eat do sport and stuff like that tons of stuff to do...working casino,pool,basketball,boxfight,crash durby and the list goes on same goes for AI behavior of Police in GTA 4 vs GTA v ^^ so much cool stuff they could do but "looking good" and a long stretched story for more "playtime" to justify 59,99 and making it work on consoles for more sales to get the maximum payout its sad but true

My friend and I were thinking on getting this, but then another friend showed me this video, and now it seems none of us will. Half-assing things isn't an acceptable business model. And here I thought I was imagining things when I thought the later Far Cry games were lacking in the magic and details of Far Cry 2. Maybe Far Cry 6 will bother to combine gameplay and details. What a shame.....I was looking forward to the animal companions.
Raczoon why though? Like, what? I don’t understand your reasoning. You won’t get far cry 5 because... you can’t chop tree branches and the sky doesn’t move? Why not focus on stuff like mechanics and story? God this comment section is dumb.

Even though Far cry 5 "looks" more realistic it really doesn't have the depth or viscerality that of Far Cry 2. Ever since, Far Cry's never had that same sense of feeling like you were in danger, lost wild and deadly place. Now your just a tourist with an AK with incredible skill of sucking bullets out their forearms.
Chazzie137 (5 days ago)
cmon son, you can trim your hedges with an AK, far cry 2 hands down. *malaria flashbacks* actually nah, nevermind
Santiperras (5 days ago)
It must be the most detailed Far Cry game
Fuzzy Dunlop (5 days ago)
If I remember correctly, most RPG's have a set distance of travel, after which they will automatically detonate - so I'm not sure if FC2 having the RPG come back to Earth was realistic or not. People can get real artsy with their RPGs. I know insurgents in Iraq would use the set travel limit to their advantage and gauge the distance just so that it'll explode in front or above someone and act as an airburst.

Thx for that video far cry 5 is a fucking joke please ppl dont buy it dont pay ubicrap for that insult of a bullshit game
Sven Dix just because it is the weakest doesn’t mean it is shit.
Sven Dix (1 day ago)
idk man i played far cry from 1 to 5 and i honestly think 5 is the weakest title..sure there are some cool new features like fishing and flying planes but all together its just to less . for me at least. i prefer GR wild lands right now where your bullets are not stopped by some wooden fence
Sven Dix but... it’s fun. Don’t let some bias comparison ruin it for you. You will barely notice any of these.

time and effort are just as valuable currency as money when you're a public game company with shareholders wanting results every time. Sacrifices are always made in big budget game design.

oh no I pay alot of attention to the forest fires you can cause. I loved burning the bliss
DEVASTAT0R THE EXCAVATOR MAN well that is fine but why would you ever waste time trying to chop branches off the tree. That isn’t the focus of the game. When your in the middle of a massive fight you don’t just take the time to slowly kill them.
I pay alot of attention in video games
DEVASTAT0R THE EXCAVATOR MAN I mean... if any of this was in 5 you’d barely notice.

FischiPiSti (5 days ago)
It's so sad that with every new installment of a franchise, even with the same engine, even with the same devteam, they just scrap everything, and just don't do it for the next game because "oh they won't notice anyway". Sequels should be built upon, they should evolve, not get a "reboot" every time. Not saying it should be copy/pasted assets, but there are certainly code, tech, that should get ported over, especially if it's a staple of the franchise. And they say games are expensive to make..

Pretty impresive for a ten years old game. Its funny, that it wasnt actually considert a good game back in the days...
Nils Bechtel I mean, it still isn’t. Some miniscle details won’t fix it. Enemies camps respawn, malaria is a pain the ass to deal with, and the story is terrible.

The dying scene in FC2 is very real. I'd say even totally real.
WilDi (6 days ago)
The thing I loved most about FC2 was the "physical" map you had to pull out when you wanted to navigate. I wish Ubi would have held to that thing in the recent games. I haven't tried any of them after FC3 though.
Goattacular (6 days ago)
Losing a buddy was one of the most heart-wrenching things in FC2. The only other game that comes to mind that compares is Mass Effect 2 on the suicide mission. In one play through, Thane kept dying no matter what, and I scrapped the entire play through.

Strangely enough, there is a fully working weather system in the Far Cry Arcade editor despite not being in the base game itself. It isn't dynamic though unfortunately and is somewhat limited.I still can't believe how static they made the environment. No trees or vegetation react to explosions, helicopter wind, or even move at all besides the scripted wind animation (Though this isn't the case in the Arcade editor for some reason). Ubisoft could've at least allow it to react when the player moves through it, but no! It's just completely static! Even the explosions themselves where toned down from Far Cry 4 such as the C4, molotov, and grenade, plus the fire looks worse since very little smoke forms and it doesn't actually destroy the vegetation, causing it grow back. I really want to like Far Cry 5 because it definitely took a step ahead with many things such as with the acting, the music, the story, the character models, and environment detail itself, but I feel it just took too many steps back with other things and overall feels incomplete. I may get it once it goes on sale, but only once most of the post release updates and DLC are out the door so that hopefully most of the issues can be fixed or changed(assuming if they ever will be). Unless if they were just lazy or doing it for profit, it would've been better if they just overhauled the Dunia engine after FC4 so it could be more capable of including all these details even though they were in older versions of the engine. If only mods would come to Far Cry's rescue.

graphics aside i feel that fc5 is a lot more fun to play than fc2 the world doesnt feel dead and empty the quest are more diverse a lot more stuff to do in general fast travel works fine now ingame economics finally work out (never thought i would see the day:D) hardly any bugs for a ubisoft game .... also i really dont get it why folks praise fc2 so much in this comments section cause i'm pretty sure that people hated the game when it came out all those years ago
Borkaman87 (6 days ago)
Great demonstration. FC2 is a fantastic game and with the movies Blood Diamond and No Country for Old men to cycle it with, it made me feel i lived two lives rather than playing a game.. FC5 is fanastic too but with one relevant flaw; spawning and despawning of events, enemies, animals etc.. can flip only 10 meters away at times, absolutely massacrating immersion.

I always thought Farcry 2 was a great game although it wasn't on the watered down hype train 3 was on for mass appeal
Subhayan Ray (6 days ago)
"all that glitters is not gold!" plus far cry 2 probably had a longer development cycle than far cry 5, and also we have to keep that in mind that crysis was just released a year before far cry 2, so stakes were pretty high since crytek developed the first far cry and Ubisoft had to give their very best to outsmart crytek's latest goliath. Games are commercial products nowadays(especially games that are developed by ea and ubisoft)

Far cry 2 might have more details, but it doesn't have fucking characters. You might as well be talking to a motherhecking plank, but it's still better than Far cry 5. I think that the 3rd Far cry was probably the best.
