Summary: I had high hopes for this game but it failed to deliver. Enemeis respawn quickly and take multiple shots to the body before dying. They can see you pretty easily but if you try missions at night, it is much easier. This game is fun to run around in and start fires. Mostly, I remember how far away my objective (the other side of the map)before I quit and use the map editor.
Summary: Far Cry 2 is definitely worth looking into if you like first-person shooters. It is the only one that I've played so far that gives you a choice between crosshairs and iron sights in the options menu. The story-line is immersive and the free roam gameplay is wide open. You're free to go where you please and you can choose from side missions during the story mode. The weapons are also very fun because there is a wide selection and each have there strengths and weaknesses.
Summary: Graphics have aged, but nice gameplay, good storyline and very long lifetime ! Sometimes a bit long and boring, especially when you have to cross the huge landscapes on foot or by car while looking constantly at your mini-map. Fortunately, the missions are many and very varied, they offer a lot of challenge and action. Many side quests significantly extend the length of the game .. Many hours of gameplay await you !
Summary: I enjoyed playing FarCry 2 very much! Great gameplay, arsenal of weapons to choose from, and the story is very well laid out. If I may say so, the plot settled in the backdrop very nicely. Huge world to explore with NPCs to interact with and plenty of decisions to be made. Even on the XBOX360, it looked great and handled nicely. My only problem was the no quick-travelling option and re-spawn of enemies at checkpoints.
Pros: 1. stunning world with weather effects 2. alternative ways of completing missions 3. the AI is very smart 4. realism: enemies re-occupy posts, weapons get jammed, need to take cover when healing yourself 5. very fun combat elements: stealth & assault
Cons: Choosing a character does not seem to influence the gameplay or story outcome, it only adds a backstory to your character
Summary: Despite very boring ideas in the game design the game still manage to give you great time when everything goes as you planed. The 2 maps are just huge and nearly without a loading screen. Blow things up is a must and never has been has fun. Great creation tools BTW.
