4.0 out of 5 stars The Crying Game 2 Sept. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart of Darkness: The Game? 9 Jan. 2011
By Jimmy
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Platinum Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a great admirer of the book Heart of Darkness and the film (similar to the book) Apocalypse Now and when i bought this game i wasnt really sure what i was getting i certainly didnt expect a game similar to the book but that is how i felt about it of course not many people will find it similar to the book but it's the little things such as heading up the african river in a boat in search of the Jakal similar to the book in which Marlow headed up the african river in a steamboat in search of Mr Kurtz and what makes it even similar is the trophy(s) Heart of Darkness and The horror...the horror. So in conclusion if your looking for a game with fantastic graphics and a story you can really loose yourself in and feel as if this were the game of the book then order this now without considering my only complaint is about the length you have to travel to get from one place to another and that you always get ambushed, but thats it really oh and Marlow didnt have malaria but im sure if the book was as realistic as the game he would have. So please dont wait around waiting for it to come down in price £10.00 is a bargain for this action packed adreneline fuelled masterpiece by ubisoft, so buy it BUY IT NOW.

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 very good indeed 12 Feb. 2011
By Gann72
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Platinum Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
On first play I thought this going to be poor...however after an hour of game play and getting used to the save locations (safe houses, bus stops)this turned into a very enjoyable experience. The atmosphere of the game (set in Africa ) is very good, the graphics are too. The story missions keep you interested, and some are quite challenging but not overly so. I got over 20 hours game play mostly keeping to the story but there are many more to be had with the side missions. This game is an exciting open world shooter. The online is fun but however thats were it ends.

PS3M magazine gives this game 91% and deserverdly so too. I was sad when the game ended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rumble in the Jungle 25 May 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Platinum Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game for people that like to mess about. The story mode goes on a bit, and there are too many random re-spawns for my taste. For instance; if you wipe out a check-point and stray too far away, when you come back, the enemies do too. There was also one incident where one of the bad guys was shooting at me from inside a rock! Of course he was impervious to any attack - he was in a rock - you get the idea. Would have made a brilliant co-op mission game, but works with like-minded friends online.
