Outstanding Graphics
Ubisoft developed the Dunia Engine specifically for Far Cry 2. Among other things, the Dunia Engine delivers realistic, interactive environments, special effects, real-time night-and-day cycles, and smart enemy AI.

Expansive, Realistic Environment
Far Cry 2 is set in a fictional region of Africa where you are caught between two rival factions at war. The Ubisoft team spent a lot of time filming and photographing in Africa to get all the details of the landscape and native wildlife. The result is a huge gameplay area that is 50 square kilometers, taking players into and out of the jungle and savannah. Wild animals such as zebras, buffalo, gazelle are encountered during the game, with both players and enemies allowed to interact with them.

Far Cry 2 features an incredible level of detail and realism, with a minimal in-game interface to detract from immersion. For example, players will need to navigate the world using an in-game map and navigation system, weapons will disintegrate over time, and fires will spread and propagate.

Each of the actions a player takes is reflected in the environment and changes the content of the game. To fulfill your mission, you need to play the enemies against each other, using both strategy and skill.

Huge Range of Weapons and Vehicles
Far Cry 2 offers gamers a wide range of weapons, from a machete for hand-to-hand combat, to a sniper rifle that can stealthily pluck off enemies from afar. As weapons disintegrate over time, they might jam or even explode in your hand.

There are also a large range of vehicles such as gliders, trucks, cars, and boats that will let you fly, drive, slide, and hover over the open landscapes.

Multiplayer Options for up to 16 Players
Far Cry 2 supports up to 16 players and has four gameplay modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Diamond, and Uprising. Players can choose from six different classes in multiplayer, each with its own set of pros and cons. Just as in the single-player mode, multiplayer games will feature dynamic elements, making each session unique.




You can explore the world of Far Cry 2 from inside a car or flying on a glider.

I thought I would take the time to play Far Cry 2 before reviewing it. What a concept. The game has, so far, performed flawlessly on my computer without any glitches or bugs at all. Any problems were caused by my own impatience as the game requires that NPC's finish their dialogue before the player can take any action. Sometimes this requires standing still for a while to make sure the NPC has completely said his piece. The play takes place in a vast African landscape in which the player is free to roam and wreak havoc as desired. The game world is so big that it has a bus service if you want to get someplace fast without having to fight your way through a dozen roadblocks. What am I saying, this game is about blasting through dozens of roadblocks in as many different ways as your imagination can come up with. Especially enjoyable are setting grass fires that burn through roadblocks without you having to fire a shot. Just watch the wind or the fire may come back on you. Best part is that after a while the bad boys return and occupy cleared checkpoints again. Your work is never done.
The assortment of vehicles is much more varied than Far Cry 1 and are easier to control. They can also be repaired by the player when damaged, so it isn't necessary to abandon a smoking jeep, although new ones are so plentifully strewn about the landscape that little walking is required. Skulking through the bushes to the perfect sniper vantage point is really all the walking you'll have to do.
The missions can be played when the player chooses or not at all. The incentive to complete the missions is the pay with which the player can purchase weapons and upgrades.

Only 3 reviews of this game on PS3 so I thought I'd add one: this game is my 2008 game of the year. Why? Because it's open. And the setting and graphics are amazing. But mainly it's open, you can approach things the way you want. As a shooter it is refreshing. Resistance, Killzone 2, they are pointless and linear. I actually traded Killzone 2, three days after buying it on release day, in disgust. Back to Far Cry 2. I enjoy single player games for the most part, and this is a great one.

It is like GTA4 but without the pretension and hokey story. It is a shooter, so don't expect RPG elements, about the only upgrades in game are weapons. But I keep going back for the environment. It is Africa the way it is meant to be seen: beautiful, but human trash littered throughout. After playing it through on medium, try it on hard... more tactical approach actually has you thinking how you will get past your objectives and survive.

This game seems to polarize people. There are those who hate that the missions require you to travel long distances past enemy checkpoints that repopulate once you leave the area. Then there are those who realize that this is the very point of the game! You are not a one-man army liberating the countryside, so that once the game is done the place is all yours. You are a lone mercenary with a job to do in a third-world country on the verge of war. Life is not easy. You are sick with malaria, driving cars that break down, and using weapons that jam and break. The terrain offers limited options for crossing a map that is huge and dotted with patrols, checkpoints, and strongholds, and everyone who sees you wants to kill you. And there are plenty more where they came from, so even if you kill everyone you meet, nowhere is permanently free of bad guys. You are just not supposed to "win" against them, and most of the time avoiding conflict is your best friend. It is all about planning and strategy, and in the end it is immensely satisfying when your plan works, and you get home safely, perhaps without killing anyone except your target. If that sounds like your kind of thing, then get this game. If you just want to "run & gun" maybe try something else!

Far Cry 2 is a very engaging FPS, perhaps slower-paced than others but ultimately one I go back to again and again. A few comparisons with Far Cry 3 for those who started there: FC3 is less predictable in the sandbox (mostly because of animals and better AI), has better weapon choices, and a larger environment. But FC2 has a far better game-save function, is more challenging in finding money, has an effective 'buddy system', and the overall gameplay is less linear. On the last point, I mean that instead of having to press specific button combinations or take a specific pathway to defeat a 'boss' character, in FC2 one simply has the mission to, say, 'remove rebel leader Y' and leaves the tactics up to the player. And since FC3 takes place in the tropics, fire isn't nearly as important or useful, while in FC2 it's often a critical part of gameplay. I've grown bored of FC3 halfway through my second run-through, while FC2 I've played more than I can count.

I absolutely loved this game. It's such a unique setting as it takes place in Africa. The scenery is stunning. How rare is that you are driving a jeep through a jungle and you encounter zebras or buffaloes?

I'm not really a fan of FPS games but I thoroughly enjoyed this game.

The only down side of this game is there a lot of driving in this game as you'll often find yourself driving from one end to another to complete missions.

As for this game having bugs, they have been fixed with the latest patch from Ubisoft.

But overall it's still a very beautifully designed game with incredible gameplay! It should be in everyone's gaming collection!

8.5/10! Recommended.
