    I don't know, it didn't look that impressive to me.

      It's probably not Optimized yet... I would give the developers of the Far Cry Series the benefit of the doubt on this one..

        Oh man... I can see myself flying in that glider, dropping off, and flamethrowing everyone in a village! Right around 14:00 is where the game starts looking stunning.

          Crytek is not making this game.

            Looks pretty impressive to me, it'll be nice to be somewhere that isn't a tropical island for once.

            Anyone have any idea of what the system specs are likely to be?

              * The GC 07 demo was running on a beefed up Core 2 Duo and an 8800.
              * This was a pre-alpha showing meaning that the game will be even more optimized by the time it is released.
              * Clint Hocking (Creative Director) stated that the game will run on a fast single core cpu and a strong DX9 graphics card
              * Far Cry 2 seems to be in line with the estimated requirements for Crysis

                FarCry was what got me into fps so I will definitively buy this. It looks like a lot of fun.

                  Just remember this is not by Crytek, hense the no mutants and Aliens, and the more likely I am to buy the game.
                  Look at some of the high def. vids of this game, and you will see it looks at least as good as Crysis.

                      Which is a good thing IMO. Crysis sucked as a game. great tech demo though.

                          I read something somewhere (probly wiki) that said Ubisoft did some interviews with gamers and found that Carver wasn't a character that the player could connect to so they wanted to create someone new.

                          I also think that games without mutants and aliens are the best ones. I hated all the levels of Crysis that had aliens and thats at least half of them. The cave level especially sucked. Far Cry 2 look sooooo scchmeeexxxy though. I got a FC2 wallpaper now.

                            Ubisoft just released the specs for Farcry 2:

                            http://kotaku.com/5034666/far-cry-2-pc-specs-revealed

                            Ubisoft just unleashed the Far Cry 2 requirements for the PC version of the open-world shooter and the minimum requirements actually aren't that bad. The recommended requirements? Don't ask, I'm still trying to get over the realization that my one-year old computer is now officially out-dated.

                            Minimum requirements
                            CPU: Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz, Pentium D 2.66 Ghz, AMD Athlon 64 3500+ or better
                            RAM: 1 GB
                            Video card: NVidia 6800 or ATI X1650 or better, Shader Model 3 required, 256 Mb of graphic memory
                            Media reader: DVD-ROM
                            Hard drive space: ~12 Gig or HD space. (tbd)

                            Recommended
                            CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Family, AMD 64 X2 5200+, AMD Phenom or better
                            RAM: 2 GB
                            Video card: NVidia 8600 GTS or better, ATI X1900 or better, 512 Mb of graphic memory
                            Sound: 5.1 sound card recommended
                            Supported Video cards:
                            NVidia 6800, NVidia 7000 series, 8000 series, 9000 series, 200 series. 8800M and 8700M supported for laptops. ATI X1650 – 1950 series , HD2000 series , HD3000 series , HD4000 series .

                            Who here has the PC muscle-power to run Far Cry 2 at full optimization? I'm just shy with an AMD Athlon Dual Core 4600+ processor.
                            Also, the FC2 dev blog is pretty good:

                              Heh, so close, my lowly 4400+ started showing its age with Crysis pretty quickly! Gotta get around to OCing it, should be good for a bit if things go well.

                              I've been trying to stay away from news on this game a bit because of how disappointed I was with Crysis, but I hope FC2 turns out as good as it seems.
