Only The Games: "Overflowing with new ideas and novel notions, Far Cry 2 is hell bent on reinvigorating a genre that has been shoving players along a single path for too long. Those hours, thoroughly steeped in the mindset of the hunt, are unlike any you've experienced. But too penchant with realism, the focus is stretched thin.
A series reborn with a new identity, the shortcomings are impart to the ambition of doing away with the conventional. But neither can it be dismissed that there is a new rulebook being written here, and flawed as it may be, Far Cry 2 is a profoundly daring game."
