Far Cry 2 isn't perfect; there's something missing here which Bit-tech is struggling to put their fingers on. It's something emotional. Games have an enormous power to move players and that's the one thing that Far Cry 2 doesn't do that games like Episode Two and BioShock do manage. Far Cry 2 can make you excited and happy, but it won't ever leave you scared or crying. It just lacks that last inch of emotional impact or philosophical pretension to take it from a truly fantastic game to an inspiring piece of craftsmanship.
