Xbox Evolved writes: "Amongst all the releases currently flooding the market, I honestly never expected Far Cry 2 would take so much time to review. There's plenty to experience in this game. What's more, you can cross out any potential involvement of unimaginatively designed models of mutated humans, extraterrestrials or the presence of fictional beings of any kind.
The game drops you in the middle of war-torn Africa. You embark on a mission to eliminate "The Jackal," a shady character whose efforts seemed to have sparked a conflict between powerful local warlords. Struggling to survive, your job is to play the factions against each other by whatever means necessary. The way you accomplish these goals is down to you, while the main task stays the same throughout the campaign - e.g. finding 'The Jackal.'"
