Gamedaily writes: "Far Cry 2 throws the rulebook out the window and lets you tear apart Africa any way you see fit. That sense of freedom, along with non-stop action and decent multiplayer, make it a game worth checking out this holiday season.
In the game, you play a mercenary in Africa, rather than a tropical paradise. Right off the bat, you run into bad luck, ambushed by gun-toting guards and contracting malaria. When you come to, a criminal known as the Jackal, a local gunrunner, taunts you and declares himself invulnerable. Your mission in the game is simple. Find and kill the Jackal by any means necessary."
