It's actually possible that I've racked up more hours playing Far Cry 2 time and time again than I did when replaying my beloved Deus Ex.

Every time I play it, there are always new ways to tackle missions - and the missions vary depending on the choices you make.

If you don't remain fully alert don't be surprised if you get shot - and being targeted by an unseen sniper at night will take some ingenuity to get him before he gets you.

Should you get cocky and decide to make an unprepared attack on superior forces, be prepared to devise a rapid escape plan.

If any game can sharpen your reflexes, this is the one.

Ignore its detractors, forget the 're-spawning', and just enjoy.

Having played most of the other "first person shooter" games, I find Far Cry 2 to be the very best. I have had months and months of enjoyment playing this game at the most difficult setting (Infamous). For an old guy like me, it's a great excercise for the brain/reaction reflexes. I would recommend such PC games to other retired folk to keep their mental abilities working.

Expect to spend more than 1/2 the time driving & wandering, punctuated by occasional skirmishes that leave us barely satisfied. Graphics is good, gameplay mechanics suffer a bit... protagonist doesn't have a full body, hence no shadow unlike crysis... HDR effect is awful: too dark to see sometimes plus haven't found any tweaks to optimize so far.

The First Person shooter is a sequal to Far Cry in name only.

The adventure here is transfered to an African country decending into civil war. You get to pick one of a number of characters, and those that you dont pick appear elsewhere in the game.

The game does some things brilliantly, it gives the freedom of a RPG (Role playing game not rocket propelled grenade) rather than being stuck in corridors as normal. You can play different factions against each other. The african savanna has some wildlife and a feeling of things happening and moving as you undertake missions.

However everyone still attacks you no matter what side you are on, the missions are a bit similar and the story whilst trying to avoid being linear does move you down a track to set pieces.

However for an FPS that does something different worth trying at a low price.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Oct. 2012
A small, failed Central African state is gripped by a terrible civil war. Two rival factions, the UFLL and APR, are fighting for supremacy and both sides have drafted in foreign mercenaries to fight for them. One such mercenary is on a secret mission for an outside power, however: to find and assassinate the Jackal, a noted arms dealer who is providing weapons to both sides.

The original Far Cry, released in 2004, was an excellent first-person shooter. The game employed a structure that was both linear and freeform: a linear sequence of missions taking place on islands, but each island was fairly substantial in size, with multiple ways of completing each mission. The successor - Far Cry 2 isn't a true sequel as it does not feature any of the same characters or locations as the original - takes this to the next level. The entire game takes place on two immense open maps, with multiple missions available at any one time, as well as the ability to simply go exploring for the sake of it.

It's a pleasing evolution of the original Far Cry formula, but very quickly flaws become apparent. Having an immense open-world game as an RPG, with dialogue and skill trees and the ability to complete missions non-violently, makes a lot of sense. However, Far Cry 2 is still a first-person shooter. People talk to you, but you can't talk back. There are multiple missions available but they pretty much all involve killing people and blowing things up.

Verified Purchase
I bought Far Cry 2 as I had played the original Far Cry game on windows and thoroughly enjoyed it. I installed Far Cry 2 on Windows 7 64 bit with an NVIDIA GTX580 with the game maxed out at 1920 x 1080 and it looks fantastic. This is a very different game to the original and there is a lot of travelling around required in the open world to complete missions - via car, boat or on foot. The only fast travel available is a bus which will take you closer to where you want to go. The open world is split into two big areas: A northern and southern region. The southern region only becomes accessible once the required missions have been played. I found the southern region the best with more interesting towns and missions. On your journeys you will be regularly be attacked by armoured cars or gun boats so you have to be prepared for action at any moment. Any areas you go to or patrol point where you kill all the enemies will be re-spawned shortly after leaving that area. At lot of people who have played the game do not like the re-spawning, but I like it as it guarantees that wherever you are in the world you will always get plenty of action. As some other reviewers have said, this is a game that will grow on you. If you can get used to and accept the large amount of travelling required; the re-spawning of patrol points and being regularly attacked by armoured cars, there is a lot to enjoy in this game.
