IGN: Far Cry 2 Review

Ubisoft Montreal has done some great things with Far Cry 2, the product of putting a gigantic development staff and what must have been a gargantuan budget behind developing a new kind of first-person shooter on a new engine. The formula still needs work in terms of enemy AI, quest structure, and giving the player more to do to fill in all that open space, but as it is, it's still a standout achievement. More importantly, it has nowhere near as many bugs as something like S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, a title that bears many similarities. Add to the roughly 25 hour single-player campaign a remarkably easy-to-use map creation tool and a full multiplayer suite, and you've got one of the most complete overall gaming packages of the year, as well as one of the most ambitious.

(Sic). I just wish that I had enough cash to get this bad boy. I don't mean to have repetition in my comments regarding this title, but it's just too damn bad.

Graphics got a 8. i was expecting much better. Sort of disappointed.

What were you expecting? The Dunia engine was designed for the PC.

it seems im the only one whos rooting for the underdogs this holiday season. everyones worried about R2, LBP, Fallout3, Gears and Fable 2 but im worried about spiderman, motorstorm, midnight club, dead space, socom, PoP and Naruto along with the aforementioned.

I just do not have the money to buy games like this. I find that a game has to have something special about it (COD4, MGS4, GT5p, GTR2, GTR Evo) for it to be worth my money. Maybe once they fix Socom I will pick that up. I have narrowed my list down to LBP, R2 and K2. Fallout, Mirrors Edge, COD WAW, RE5, and End War are on the chopping block.To think my PS2 library was over 50 games at one point. Ow well stupid economy.

Ya, but you got to love the internet generation. I'll never get saddled with a crappy game ever again and no really good game will ever get passed me. No wasted money.

The other FC for 360 was trash to most, but fun as hell to me and my friends. I cant wait!

Shadow Man3437d ago

Is longer than Gears and Res.

Ofcourse it is... is a frikgen RPG? You want FPS to have RPG type lenth? No one would finish them and 25hrs for an RPG isn't at all lenghty.

theEnemy3437d ago

Your not saying Resistance 2 right ?

Cause if it is, then you need to go a few pages back or search some news on "Resistance 2" cause it looks like you haven't been on a gaming site in the past few weeks.

Great score. I'm renting this since too many good games are coming out in such short time.
