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: 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.
Summary: i bought this game at a local store when it came out.. i was hoping it would be like the first farcy but with better graphics, boy was i wrong.. this game is pathetic compared to the first farcry. crytek really messed up with this game. do not waste your money on this it was the worst game purchase i ever spent. buy something else.
Pros: game has great visuals.
Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE! where to start.. the game feels like a jungle rip off of grand theft auto.. you practially steal automobiles, drive from place to place. remember how in grand theft auto you would have to kill the pizza guy who would just drive in circles around the town? well you will find gameplay like that here too.. except its a weapon dealer in a truck.. id say the worst part about this game is that EVERYBODY, literally EVERY NPC you will meet outside of town or ...
Worst Bond Game Ever and Maybe the Worst Game Ever

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: My system runs this game at high settings without much trouble. AMD quad 630. 2.8ghz quad no L3 cache Asus m4a785m mobo with 6 gigs ram BFGtech 8800 GT overclock graphics card (oldy but goody)
Pros: Price, free shipping. Xbox 360 controller for PC works, even though it is not stated in the description, or the packaging. AWESOME graphics, but requires a decent system to play at high settings. See my specs in other thoughts.
Cons: NOTHING like the first FarCry. Not quite my style of game, as you constantly have to drive around and shoot this guy, then drive back across the HUGE map to find another guy. This product description said "Jewel Case", and it showed up in a cardboard sleeve...lol
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: 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!
