On October 14, 2008 Far Cry 2 went gold - meaning the game was fully completed and sent to printers. One week later on October 21, 2008 Far Cry 2 was released in North America by Ubisoft. With an average Metacritic score of 85 - across the 360, PS3 and PC platforms - Far Cry 2 has received praise for emergent gameplay in an open world African setting. With a pretty kick ass multiplayer mode and rather robust map editor included in each version, it's not hard to see why Far Cry 2 is a triumph in the FPS genre.
GamesRadar sat in their room looking at the game on theirr shelf the other night and couldn't figure out why the game they wanted to play for months wasn't currently in their 360. And then they remembered the bad news: the game contains severe game-ending bugs in every version available.
