Summary: The game was not what i was excepting to play. The graphics are terrible and the gameplay movement. Just not good enough to play on PC, need to make better graphics. The game looked like it was made 2 years ago. I would not pay of the full retail price.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I am by far not a critique of games.I am a average 48 yr. old person who likes to play video games.When I heard this game was being released on November 2nd I had this strong desire to get this game.After all it's "James Bond".I have played and I own every James Bond game that came out in every game format possible.Though I favor PC games.I ran down to the local gamestore with my last $50 in my wallet.I went home feeling I had conquered...
Summary: Far Cry 2 Graphics - meh, everything is a shade of brown so that even at the highest settings, with a FPS of over 60 it is hard to see what needs to be seen. Maybe this was done for "realism", but its a video game. Dunia engine so what, there are games years older with graphics that compete. Gameplay - double meh. As stated above, impossible to see enemies but they can see you through foliage. No radar so no way to know who is shooting at you from where.
Summary: Don't buy this to run on Win 7 or the XP virtual machine. It does not run, yet. I bought it and it would not install under Win 7. I then tried Win XP virtual machine and it starts but the number of colors is limiting. If anyone findds a work-a-round, I would like to know it.
Gorgeous landscape and amazing theme, hare-brained gameplay

Summary: I received this game as part of a hardware bundle ordered through a competitor's website. It was part of the reason I chose the associated graphics card. Initially, I was awestruck by the beautiful, almost real life cinematic environment, realistic environment, and wide selection of firepower - the flamethrower is just genious.
Try it if you like style over substance, and even then it isn't really good style

Summary: Farcry 2, where to begin? First, the graphics and overall visuals are exceptional. There are limits to the amount of damage you can do to the environment. Only certain things burn or break off, and it is really cheesy by the time you get the hang of it. You can't just set fire to the entire forest because even dry bushes burn out by themselves. Pyromaniacs will be disappointed. The gameplay and weapons physics are the worst parts of the game.
Summary: Had to give the below arverage rating because the two FarCry2 games that I bought would not play on line. There Tec people (farCry) were of no help. The first FarCry in some ways was better so I thought FarCry2 would be gangbusters WRONG!
