My XFX Radeon HD 7970 arrived earlier this week and with it came some free games. I got Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs(I already has, but hey, nice Christmas gift for a friend I suppose), and Hitman Absolution. I decided to try Far Cry 3 first and... wow, massive improvement over Far Cry 2 in nearly every way. I found Far Cry 2 to be downright annoying. All of the little niggles in Far Cry 2 that added up to an obnoxious experience were fixed it seems like, plus there's a bunch of new stuff to the third game. I wouldn't exactly call it Skyrim with guns... that's a stupid quote, but it's leaps and bounds better than the second game.
