The Laser writes: "Ubisoft's ambitious Far Cry 2 takes you deep into war torn African jungles as you struggle against mysterious forces who are profiting from an endless civil war. It takes many of the conventions of FPS titles and turns them on their head. Instead of mindlessly shooting anyone in your way, you instead need to communicate and make friends as you play. The deep storyline unfolds gradually and gives you a stake in the outcome. This emotional attachment means you'll be forced to make sometimes unpleasant choices in order to survive. Visually, the game offers a splendid rendering of the continent, with brilliant environmental effects such as dust and dirt permeating everything. It makes for a solid, and surprisingly deep FPS experience that takes the series in a completely new, and yet more satisfying direction."
