Warning: Far Cry 2 Is Still a Broken Game

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.

i bet you wore a safari hat and was armed with a bowie knife every time you powered on farcry 2.

Personally, i pissed off at the game for glitching me out of it.
Im in the middle of a mission where the dude ont talk to me and wont let my mission end that sonuvabiothch.

Maddens Im jealous of your luck and the ability to smoke crack and still own some sort of personal computer that you havent sold yet.

Far Cry 2 is rubbish. Overhyped.

I loved the first Far Cry. Had it on the Xbox. Superb game.

I totally agree.

Sold mine months ago also. The re-spawning guard posts killed it for me. You couldn't drive to a mission without going through at least 3 of them. Don't get me started on the car chases and the AI catching up to you.

Now that I think of it out of all the games I've sold over the last few months this is the game I miss the most. It could have been so epic. I LOVED the feeling of walking through the jungle and how all the plants and shrubs fell as you walked over them. The game was breathtaking. To me it was more visually appealing than Killzone 2. I loved K2, but everything was so dark and grey and brown.

Forgot to mention how many times I lost XP in mutliplayer. So annoying.

Just FYI, the Far Cry on Xbox was a spin-off. The first Far Cry is a PC-only game.
