    COD 2 is a one campaign 100% linear game.

    Far cry actually allows you to do things in different orders later on in the game.

    Definitley farcry. Cod3 isnt a good game. I'm really sorry to say so, but its true. Its like Godfather 3. 1 & 2 are really good, but 3 just isnt good, There are lotsa glitches and no multiplayer. I have Cod3 and there are times when you see guns just floating in the air or bodies through walls.

    Dude that happened in WW2, my grandpa used to tell me all about the floating guns and pink sherman tanks and the small red elves that made chicken noises on omaha beach...while he was smoking his opium pipe.

    CoD3 has way better controls. In FarCry when you move off the screen, it oddly moves your controls to wherever it feels like. yo can also get stuck looking down a lot. The ferral attacks are wicked fun though. Call of Duty is nioce because when you move off the screen it turns you faster whichever direction you are looking. That is the logical choice, and therfore is much smoother for gameplay. I will admit though that after you get used to those shitty parts of the controls, FarCry is loads of fun. Both offer the vehicles, but I haven't seen any in the multiplayer of FarCry. That would rock. It would also be nice if it supported 4 players. Playing preditor against 3 people would be insane. Of course CoD3 has no multiplayer at all.

    Overall if your looking for a realistic game with good controls, get Cod3. FarCry has more of a Doom feel to it, and has the slight control issues I mentioned. But it still is loads of fun to play.

    So get them both, but know what your getting.

    I have never once had that control issue. And never once got it stuck looking in any direction.

    Its more just that if you are looking down, and possibly getting hit, it takes a second or two to look back up. I guess its mostly because I got CoD first that I got used to being able to look quickly. If I had only played FarCry I would not have any gripes.

    Exactly, the best Call of Duty in my opinion was United Offensive, then it slowly got worse and worse.

    far cry is not worth $50. 29.99 maybe. the AI blows on every setting. if you cant outsmart them, you really shouldn't be playing games. cod3 is a much more exciting experience. (at least the enemies can aim) far cry is sort of like duck hunt with the ability to move.... and the enemies fire at you.... occasionally......

    Farcry is a cool game. I tried CoD3 and prefer Farcry, however I didn't play either one yet too far into it.

    The opening scene of FarCry had wierd lines going through it. It seemed to be a bit better after that with the cutscenes. And THANK GOD, you can skip em.

    Nintendo really needs to get their online system up and get these games up for online multiplayer. That is what keeps the game going for years. Far Cry online for the PC was amazing and so was CoD.
