Conclusion: It is worth noting that you will likely be a lot more attached to your character (and your team mates) than you were in Far Cry . I couldn’t care less about Jack Carver’s fate but somehow Nomad, Psycho and the others are a lot more likeable.

Excerpt: 91% gab es fuer das Hauptgame, weil es einfach grandios gewesen ist und extrem viel geboten hat. Nun ist das erste AddOn verfuegbar, welches das Hauptgame erfordert. Das Paket macht einen guten Eindruck – 4 neue Kampagnen, die sehr umfangreich sein sollen. Neue Voelker, Einheiten und so weiter.
