Summary: It's a difficult game to control with a regular computer. It does not store the game as others do so getting to a certain spot is difficult after closing. Control is not good. On my computer it does not work well. I'm sorry I spent the money on this. Would love to return it if i could.
Worst Bond Game Ever and Maybe the Worst Game Ever
David Schmidt, Amazon

Summary: Do not buy this game! Activision should be ashamed that they released it. The single player consists of very stilted shooting sections that are separated by long sections of looking at your smart phone which tells you exactly where to go step by step. There is nothing to figure out and no secrets to unlock. The game also features the worst driving sections I have played. The controls are so loose and the graphics are so bad that you will want to throw your controller.
Summary: I did not like this game. I'm disappointed the hero has malaria and has to replenish himself all the time. And, he spends waaaaaaaay to much time driving from one mission to another. Profoundly disappointed.
Summary: I read that there were lots of compatibility problems with this game, and I should have listened to the reviews. I have been trying on and off for 2 weeks to get this game to run with no luck. I have downloaded patches, read websites, and re-loaded drivers to no avail. WAY too much work to play a video game. Too bad as I loved the first one and it ran like clockwork on my PC.
Summary: After playing (and thoroughly enjoying) the original Far Cry I did harbor hope that this sequel would provide some fun and entertainment. Wrong! It's pretty horrible. And even with the current low price of $2.90 it's way overpriced! I should have paid more attention to all those negative reviews.
Summary: Pros: Creative use of african ambiance..the music, sounds, accents of the characters you interact with, all give that "you are here in Africa" feeling. Music is tribal/ambient and thus fits well with the mood. Graphics are decent, though nowhere near Crysis, or for that matter, COD4. Decent frame rates on a lower core 2 duo.
Summary: Simply put this game was dumbed down for consoles to make a quick buck. Single player issues: no lean, no prone, no destructive environment (they lied), AI can't drive, has nothing even remotely to do with far cry Multiplayer: 1. No lobby system. Yes thats right something common since 1992 has not been implemented instead you have to automatch for a certain game type and hope there is a server that is starting a game. 2. Cant join mid game.
Summary: Plain and simple......THIS GAME IS TOTALLY WORTHLESS!!! Nothing like the original; nothing like the great storyline in FarCry; and nothing like wasting my money on a lame horse!!! Come to think of it...I should have wasted my money on a lame horse! At least watching the race would be more exciting than this boring ol' peice of code. And not only does the game bite, Ubisoft went and added DRM! SecuRom!!! the agency from South of Heaven!
Summary: Clearly the game was designed for the console market with PC as an afterthought during development. Although there are some interesting aspects, it ultimately is just a boring game on the PC platform with minimal replay value. Games are judged relative to the alternatives available for that platform. In the PC area it falls down hard. Start with the aspect ratios the game screens take are very TV/Console rather than PC monitor oriented.
Summary: Id like to preface my review by stating that in no way has my opinion of the game been swayed by the DRM used for piracy protection by Ubisoft. This review is solely in regards to the gameplay itself. With my pure enjoyment of Far Cry and Crysis, I was extremely excited about the release of this game. Unfortunatly when I began playing the game, I became more and more disappointed as I played.
