Summary: Overall, this game felt just like the Quantum of Solace game. You duck, you shoot, you keep running in the same direction until you hit the end and the cinematic rolls... Very basic. I wasn't that impressed with QoS so I gave it 2 stars. Here is what is different about this game which made me tack on another star: Graphics are better- You feel like you're playing a game that was made this century now. The image is detailed and the characters look good.
Summary: The Good: Fun stealth, great set pieces, takedowns are brutal, interesting locales The Bad: Shooting feels weightless, driving sections are underdeveloped, story is iffy, voice acting is stiff Most movie based games are disasters, but when you take a movie license and do something original with it it can turn out for the better.
Summary: I really liked FarCry 1. I had high hopes for FarCry 2, unfortunately it could not live up to it's predecessor. The action and background still provides lots of entertainment but FarCry 2 gets repetitious and boring. Consider Crysis instead, it is a real game!
Pros: Controls easily customized - graphics pretty good - game play ok. Good game for the money
Cons: Glitchy interaction - WAY too much involved with online reg, didn't allow me to use previous ubisoft reg. name and passwords - needed new e-mail, new name and new password - not happy about that. downloading updates also a problem.
Summary: Fun, very playable and challenging. talk ABOUT a blast to play. Activision, Get with the graphics program please. Sub par looking people are not gonna get you there but game play is as good as any. Racing and exhilarating gun play. Pretty linear but still decent. The game keeps going for quite a while. A MUST PLAY ON HARD LEVEL OR A WASTE OF MONEY!
More a review of "Sold by Galactics and Fulfilled by Amazon" than the game.

Summary: More a review of "Sold by Galactics and Fulfilled by Amazon" than the game. Just a cautionary tale. I recently purchased this title and Crysis. I opened Crysis first and ran into an issue during the install. No CD Key. Long story short no support for from EA US and not making international calls to get support. Got Amazon to take it back on return.
Summary: Very mixed feelings about this game! At its best , it's very interesting and fun, but MANY annoying glitches, gameplay that becomes almost tedious at times, with a frustrating repetitive aspect to things like the gun dealer and assassination missions that palls quickly. Destroy interchangeable weapon convoys. Kill generic guy in suit. Fun the first few times, then... These missions only exist to unlock weapons and get you diamonds (the game currency).
