Gameplayer: FarCry 2 Review

Gameplayer writes: "The lads at Ubisoft sure like Frederich Nietzsche. Not only did they call one of their games Beyond Good & Evil, assuming everyone would get the reference, but they¹ve come up with a new super-villain that loves to spout the works of that crazy (if influential) German philosopher. Five minutes into the game, you¹re bedridden with malaria, groggily staring your objective in the face: The Jackal. You¹ve been sent to terminate this diabolical arms dealer, but instead of offing you while he has the chance, he recites a motivational sound-byte: "A living thing seeks to discharge its strength. Life itself is the will to power. Nothing else matters." Then he just buggers off".

Pretty excited about this one, even though the review isn't the best score.

I am not expecting Resistance to offer much - Insomniac should stay to platformers - so what else is there. Turok?

Digging out bullets and 'undislocating' your arm sounds pretty fricken sweet. It's a pity there are no lions to shoot, though...

But I'm wondering why Res Evil 5 got so much flack for being set in Africa and 'being racist for it' and yet Far Cry 2 will see us mowing down just as many (if not more) black locals, but escapes the controversy.

What gives there?
