IGN AU: Far Cry 2 Review

Despite some flaws, Far Cry 2 is almost an essential purchase this holiday retail season. The only reason to excuse yourself from picking it up might be if you're just shootered-out, which frankly is an understandable possibility. Even so, it's thoughtfully designed in most respects with a solid storyline and gameplay that, for good and ill, panders to pure action fans. The map maker is solid, multiplayer is playable if limited. Almost in the same stroke, fans of open-world shooters like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or RPGs from Bethesda will also find much to love about the structure. Ubisoft Montreal has taken the Far Cry name into a great new direction.

Graphics- 9.5
Superb HDR and excellent environmental effects are capped off by the character models, animation and seamless streaming. Pop-in and glitching is noticeable and annoying at times.
