4.0 out of 5 stars The Crying Game 2 Sep 2009
By Trigger
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Platinum Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Far Cry 2 is easily one of the most seductive and impressive games this generation has yet seen. Ubisoft Montreal's Dunia engine driving the game is a wondrous technical achievement, boasting an abundance of impressive effects and incidental details. However, look beneath this veneer of masterful technology and there lies a game which is so very nearly at the top of its genre were it not for some incomprehensibly frustrating design decisions.

FC2 ventures into a nameless African state embroiled in civil war. Two factions are vying for control of the country and as a hired mercenary it's the player's job to assassinate the gun runner supplying both sides and prolonging the conflict; an elusive figure known only as The Jackal. FC2 has many literary allusions, but despite these shameless influences the world is cohesive and diverse, and it creates a real sense of place and tangibility.

Much like the Grand Theft Auto series, the main character performs tasks for the different factions in order to gain their trust and get more information on his quarry. The problem here being that these missions have little relation to the larger plot, and it doesn't feel as though anything which occurs is really bringing you any closer to finding The Jackal. There isn't a great deal of variety; missions generally require you kill someone, destroy something or maybe even kill someone and destroy something. It doesn't help that every character in the gameworld is always gunning for you. Apparently this is because you're a deniable asset on secret missions, but that still doesn't really explain why every single soldier or mercenary in the whole game shoots the moment they can see you.

Compounding the character's vulnerability are degradeable weapons and malarial sickness.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Have Been So Much More 23 April 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Platinum Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Far cry has many good points but in the end all the missions seem the same and the game becomes extremely boring and repetitive. Very similar to Assassins Creed if u want some imagination in ur games then stay clear.
Best part of the, game setting fire to the dry grass. OH YEAH.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb game 4 Oct 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Platinum Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It takes a bit to 'get' (or even get into) but when you do, you realise what a superb game it is. Don't crash about running and gunning - you'll get repeatedly stomped on and frustrated. Instead slow down, stealth your way to good sniping positions, learn the patrol routes, learn the game's AI - how it will react to any given situation, learn the best stalking tactics, avoid fights when they're not tactically required (sneak around guard posts, for example) etc etc. Then you're in for a fantastically immersive game that you'll play and play and play. And if you still can't make headway check out Major Slack's YouTube guides. They're great entertainment in their own right, but they also demonstrate perfectly how to get the most from the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying if its cheap 8 April 2010
By TH
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Platinum Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Game is not bad, but could use some work

graphically its OK.
full night and day feature is impressive.
fairly long lifespan.

game play is a bit clunky and targeting is hard.

voice acting is terrible.
poor story.
map is too large, you spend too much time travelling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far Cry 2 23 May 2012
By Baz
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Platinum Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a little disappointed during the first 10 minutes of this game as I expected better graphics. However after playing for a few hours and seeing weather changing, the sun rising and setting as well as the different terrain, I was very impressed. The gameplay is great. Great weapons and vehicles too. After 2 days playing im totallly hooked. The game seems huge and theres many side missions to do also. Not too much cut scenes which is also a bonus.
I would recommend this game to any action fans
