Default Resistance 2 vs FarCry 2

Both are getting tons of hype - which do you think looks more impressive? which will have a stronger and longer lasting online community? sales?

Im still incredibly sick of shooters in general and have yet to even buy one this year - I rarely even play them anymore. I just feel the genre is so played out and too much recycled junk is put out. So it really takes a lot to impress me now. Gears 2 will be the first (and perhaps only) shooter I buy this year.

But what interests me about farcry 2 is the open world, 24hr day/night cycle and physics. It really does look amazing. Although I dont care for the MP at all, so its a rent at best for me just for the SP. I hear its 50hrs long the SP, I most likely wont even get past 1/3 of it before I get sick of it as it looks like its all in the same jungle like environment. If thats the case, then the game will get old fast.

me too. i like the concept that the storyline is "open reactive" as someone stated on another forum. you can go any direction you choose, you basically just need to find the main bad guy at the end.

I would have to say Far Crys online community will last longer because its multiplatform. But could careless about either.

Gears of War II is all I need until Killzone 2 comes out.

If KZ2 reviews poorly, or otherwise falls on it's face, I may give Resistance a second look.

I don't know yet, I think Farcry2 because of the map editor. Farcry2 will likely be the game that gets my multiplayer FPS buddy to buy a PS3 as it looks like no multiplayer split screen. We play shooters at my house at least 2 nights a week, and now I think he's gonna be bringing his TV over and buying a PS3 so we can LAN FC2. It's all about the map building - make your own games. We play a lot of stealth, low death count and each one really counts so you move carefully. We split the screen with a plywood divider and take of radar. Turn it up and pay attention to the sounds of the other guy - be observant and hunt.

I Never actually liked Resistance for multiplayer, I liked resistance for the story and the scope - I don't see this one being different - interesting story, mind-blowing scope and amount of things happening on screen.

Far Cry for me. just made my decision!
