Game Informer: Far Cry 2 Review

Game Informer: "Far Cry 2 is one of the most ambitious game releases in years. It nabs the gold medal spot for the biggest and most expansive first-person shooter ever, with a sprawling world filled with options, upgrades, and missions. Sadly, it's also plagued by a combat system that rarely elevates itself past basic gunplay. The game's open nature belies a core combat experience that doesn't change very much as the game progresses. There's a huge amount of content, but the straightforward nature of the fights makes those events blend together, particularly since so many battles occur for no reason whatsoever." (Far Cry 2, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10

Seems like this game is going to deserve a rental first. I don't mind a 3.5 install, but I only have so much time to play games with school getting closer and closer to the finals.

Good review, although I was expecting a little higher than an 8 flat.

I'm still gonna pick this up as soon as I got spare cash.

I already have the game.

Looking forward to it playing tomorrow.

These reviewers are dumb, seriously the game is above an 8. At least I would say it is a 9 in my opinion.

This review is not accurate. This game has great gunplay, breathtaking graphics, amazing environments with dynamic day and night cycle and weather system, great sound, good storytelling and thematic elements, oh, and did I mention the amazing fire propagation. It never gets old throwing a molotov into the dry African grass and watching the fire spread and smoke to leave a charred ground. These guys are definitely way off and shouldn't be reviewing video games and they just lost credibility with me. Funny how this game has been receiving average scores of about 8.8-9.3 and these two half wits give it some of the lowest scores the game has seen, morons. I only trust IGN anyway, they gave it a 9.0 and Gamepro gave it a perfect 5/5, Game Informer also gave Assasin's Creed a 9.5 so that proves my point, TOTAL MORONS !! Oh, they also gave Battlefield Bad Company a 9.25 and that game is a freaking joke, way to go GAME INFORMER, YOU'RE TOTALLY INCOMPETENT.
