I'm a little surprised theres basically no talk of the console version of Far Cry 2 here on OCN. Does anybody else own the PS3 version? or even the 360 version for that matter? I understand this forum is basically all about getting your rig to run the most demanding games so basically everyone's bought it for PC hence the explosion of FC2 threads in the PC section
I bought it for PS3 with the limited edition because since I got my HDTV and PS3 I've saved the money from upgrading my rig to enhance my "couch gaming" setup so my rig wouldnt do that well with Far Cry 2 as it stands.
Anyway my comments. The game firstly looks beautiful. I've seen graphics settings comparison on the PC version and the PS3 sits comfortable at DX9 - High settings. The shaders, lighting and physics are brilliant and surpass basically any other console game I've played. All I could note graphics wise is that the textures are slightly lower. Obviously I've got no way to give my own screens (not sure if FC2 supports in-game screen capture yet). But I can say in HD 720p the PS3 version runs at very smooth frames. I'd say atleast 30-50.
There is never any crashing or bugs in the game. Saving takes about 30 seconds which is a little long but considering the amount of data in the game thats probably realistic. I'm currently doing singleplayer only but I have tried multiplayer and its a nice bit of fun as a side step to the main game. It works pretty well too on consoles. The map editor works surprisingly well on the PS3 too. I thought itd be a bit tricky but ubisoft really pulled it off with this console port!
