Features
Caught between two rival factions in war-torn Africa, you are sent to take out "The Jackal", a mysterious character who has rekindled the conflict between the warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives. In order to fulfil your mission you will have to play the factions against each other, identify and exploit their weaknesses, and neutralise their superior numbers and firepower with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.

1 out of 5 eggsSave yourself the torture!!!!!

Pros: Gun selection is cool, graphics are great

Cons: Storyline would be cool if it didn't late 25+ hours
Transportation sucks-why airplanes weren't included just escapes me. I think you spend half of your time in this game just travelling around.
You Get Attacked all the time and often, for no reason
Accumulating wealth takes forever
Your buddies seem to distract you from your primary missions (aka: they are a waste of time but are necessary)
Missions are extremely repetitive (from gun vendors and from APR and UFLA)
There are too many checkpoints
AI is awful (shoot you from a mile away with low quality riles and chase you across the whole map)

Other Thoughts: I gave up after putting 15+ hours into this and getting only 40% of the way through the game. Save yourself before getting caught into a web of boredom and monotony.

5 out of 5 eggsFar Cry 2- innovative and realistic

Pros: This is a great game- graphics are really nice and it really innovates with a vast setting you can travel around, role paying elements, and more "realistic" combat. The setting is big enough that it takes a really long time to see everything and explore. The combat might be a bit frustrating at first since it is meant to be more realistic, but I have really grown to like it. The mix of RPG elements makes it really fun.

Cons: It might take some getting used to at first, but I have really started to like the game. It is different from most FPS games though.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a really fun game.

5 out of 5 eggsAbout Far Cry 2

Pros: There's a bit of driving but if there wasn't something it would be boring. Graphics are pretty good.

Cons: Cons??? I can make one up but it would obvious. This is a pretty good game with alot of non-expectants.

Other Thoughts: When you're in cease fire area. Don't start a fight. You'll be running away. Ha Ha Ha .

5 out of 5 eggsDon't understand the poor reviews

Pros: Ok, I LOVE THIS GAME. Its that sandbox FPS that I've come to love playing. Go where you want, do what you want. Graphics are very good. I like being ambushed at every checkpoint, the guns are so friggin cool to shoot that I like switching from one to another just to hear the different sounds each gun makes, the reloading and chambering of the next round in sniper rifles. I just love it all. I am into hunting games and if you're like me, you know that those hunting games available from that well known manufacturer absolutely suck. I was just walking around Far Cry 2, with the sniper rifle, finding animals and blasting them. It was so cool I wish UBISOFT would make a good hunting game. It would sell! Back to the main game, when you get a mission, yes, you do have to drive half way across the map or more but thats what makes this game fun. I'm sick of those corridor shooters where there's only one way to go. This is a sweet game especially for the price. Get it and don't listen to the neg

Cons: The missions can get repetative but what game isn't repetitive? I still find it very interesting. It does require some graphical horsepower. I'm running 9600 gts in SLI and with very high settings, I get around 30 fps average, it dips into the low 20's once in a while but usually sticks in the upper 20's.

Other Thoughts: Don't judge this game by people who may have different opinions about what games are fun. If you like crysis, bioshock, and other similar games where you can go where you want without being confined to a set path, you will like this game. At the current price, its a steal.

4 out of 5 eggsDifferent...perhaps controversial

Pros: see other thoughts before...
First, I must say ubisoft did its research in Africa to make this game and really it shows, to their credit they did a good bit to set a beautiful environment. The game is quite a bold venture into a department of games that doesn't yet exist... hence the split of reviews. Its a real lesson of morality for those willing to listen...you are free to make your own decisions...with consequences even if they don't matter in the scheme of things.

Cons: Ubisoft did a good job of advertising to the wrong audience, the happy go lucky game play previews are a far cry from this game...really does fit in the mature category.

Buddies and vehicles are disposable, cause more trouble than good

You have no friends, only people with similar invested interests at least part of the time

there is no thing called a "car accident" and "exchanging information", that compact or jeep tailgater behind you isn't late for a business meeting.

As others have mentioned it can be rather annoying driving through checkpoints and being ambushed every couple miles.

Where are the civilians? How can it the whole country be run by mercenaries and minions who either blow up stuff or set things on fire...

heavy on system resources? But that was a given.

Too much environmental/ai respawning as others have mentioned...you can't conquer Africa, or be the king, feel free to play the king maker.

Other Thoughts: first thing to be clear on this game: 1- not linked to its predecessor in any way 2- This game was published and made by Ubisoft after Crytek, the original maker sold the rights to the franchise. 3-for prospective buyers, it is not a perennial fps...so it should not be compared to COD Think more on the lines of godfather 2. 4-if your looking for a happy ending this may not be for you.

3 out of 5 eggsahh

Pros: This game is really opened world. Its really bad. The spot you have to go to would be across the map and you would have to drive all the way. Everybody hates you and you barely get to kill people.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It's okey.

4 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: The game has stunning graphics! I was standing in a road looking into the sun and there was a tree reaching across the road. I could see the sun rays through the leaves and the sun was also making it hard for me to see. There are animals like wildebeest and zebras, you can shot them and run them over. Once I found an enemy truck in the road. The car was empty, but there was a wildebeest under the wheels. I had a good laugh. The game also has a wide variety of weapons. The personalities of main characters and buddies is good. I like the cocky co-leader of the APR (on of the factions). He is hysterical. The world is HUGE and well made. The story line is good too.

Cons: It takes about 15 shots to the chest from my automatic to kill an enemy. The sniper rifles are the way to get effective kills. The missions are repetitive and long. The cars go don't go over 60mph. The multiplayer unlock system sucks.

Other Thoughts: The game is rated M for: Blood, Intense Violence, Strong Language, S**ual Themes, and Drug reference. First, there are no s**ual themes. Second, it should be the drug reference is malaria pills...so offensive...

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Game

Pros: True to life game in Africa. Nothing fictitious here like most other games.
Excellent graphics and people tend to look reasonably normal.
Requires strategy to complete missions. Not bang bang all the time.

Cons: Recommended system requirements are not high enough to play in DX10

Other Thoughts: Using ATI cards anything less than a 3870, DX10 is a problem.
Of course you have the option to play on low settings, like all other games. You may not see your targets too easily in this case.
E8400 @ 4 GB 800 with ATI 4870 seems to do the trick for ultra high settings.
It,s a game based on scenery, you be the judge.
