"Crytek's Far Cry for the PC was quite the first person shooter for its time. A giant tropical island backdrop for Jack Carver and his adventure against mercenaries and conspiracy was a refreshing experience compared to the rest of the shooter pack. Far Cry 2 doesn't star Jack. In fact, it wasn't even developed by Crytek who went onto create the incredibly gorgeous Crysis. Far Cry 2 is its own game and only shares its namesake and the open world concept with its predecessor. Well, how did I like it? For better (and worse), Far Cry 2's construction reminded me of their 2007 title, Assassin's Creed. Now that I've got you scratching your head with intrigue, allow me to elaborate."
