DailyGame writes: "Far Cry 2 comes to Xbox 360 and PS3 amid a storm of AAA titles during the busiest new-release time of the year. This is a shame, too, since Ubisoft's sequel offers a decent first-person shooter experience that may be passed-over by droves of gamers lured into its higher-profile sequel competition, namely Gears of War 2 and Resistance 2.
Unlike those games, Far Cry 2 is not a continuation of the original's story and themes. Jack Carver is nowhere to be found, nor are the various incarnations of Instincts and Predator. There are no Feral powers or Trigens to experiment with. About an hour in, I began to wonder why Ubisoft put Far Cry into the title at all."
