The first game in the Far Cry series was revolutionary in a countless number of ways and for many reasons, which would explain why so many people are anticipating this 2nd proper entry into the series. Far Cry 2 is set in a completely new environment, a desert in Africa instead of a tropical island. The differences between the two don't end here though, the gameplay itself is partially different and the game relates to a completely different main character and overall story. The developers made sure they added a few new touches themselves as well. How everything adds up together is what you will read about next.
