Great Game with Caveats

 

At this price, even with the cons, it's a fun game.

Lots of eye-candy. Great physics modeling. Fires, time progression of sun and moon, excellent weapons. Decent vehicle animations and feel. Large playing area. Traveling from place to place in various vehicles and boats. Blowing stuff up

Worst con is that despite updating to the 1.03 (latest version) the game constantly freezes and eventually crashes your system. I have to save every two minutes (a pain) to keep my progress because of this problem. I've tried all the "fixes" suggested...

Young people are spoiled

 

Some of you guys need to push away from your gameboxes and computers and live real life, occasionally. L.M.A.O. The game is a steal at this price. It is every bit as entertaining as the first FarCry (which also, for it's time, was far ahead of the...

This game and the code for it, kicks major tail. Heh, it's not DukeNukem, but there can be only one (of those) ; I run this at UltraHigh max settings on a MSI overclocked 6850 an it truly is immersive eye candy

Far Cry 2 Ubisoft dissapointment TekLevelWhatever

 

you have to drive a car or a boat across the map for everything. kewl at first but too much after a few hours. irritating after a day. all guns you pick up off the ground jam and ultimately explode. kewl at first but stupid after a while. all guns will...

installing was quick and auto update was fast. some things are very kewl. jamming guns are no fun but a realistic event in life and i thought pretty neat idea. and you that is too annoying just buy new guns. if you wreck a car you can fix it if you get...

too many. to begin with the menus succ and are arduous and non-intuitive. you will search a long time for some simple setup movements. visual glitches abound. the ai is worse than Far Cry 1.[was a great game] when the game starts you have to watch a...

My favorite game!

 

Overall- Awesome game, truely fantastic. Its imperfections are annoying, but the package is unlike anything else (I can only wonder if some people just wanted something like the first far cray. I hadn't played it, and going in with no expectations I...

Beutiful graphics, weather and day/night cycles. Huge nonlinear story and missions ; Great

The missions are not repetitive as some folks have said (getting there is fun, you explore Africa!) but the traveling to and from locations can be boring at times. This is a small distraction, and the world is so engaging and beutiful I couldn't care...

A repetitive game

 

Glad I bought it from Newegg for $5. I've heard that the game is a sequel in name only. FC2 is made by a different developer than FC1 and FC2 could be considered a different game altogether. I don't recommend buying this game based on the name alone.

Good graphics. Cheap game (in more ways than price unfortunately)

NPC voiceovers are bland. Repetitive gameplay forces you to travel to opposite ends of earth, and even worse is how enemies respawn based on distance so you fight enemies & patrols at least two times to complete a single mission. Effects of extended...

one of my all time favorite games

 

I played through the sp 9 times, mp for hundreds of hours. it was a fair buy at 49.00 years ago. for 9 bucks you cannot beat this game. if you like shooters and never played this, buy it now. right now. i mean it. stop rolling your eyes and break out...

big sandbox, lots of weapons, great story, fantastic dialog and npc chatter, fun mp, very cool visually (fire effects, sunlight changes as time passes). just a quality game through and through

environment not as destructible as advertised, maxxed out my cpu (course that was on a single core p4 years ago). AI kind of stupid but game is pretty hard at hardcore level

Consumer review by:

The price is right.

 

Good game for a fantastic price. Pick this one up!

Graphics are fantastic. At this point game is well patched leaving no obvious bugs. Many entertaining hours for a very low price

The amount of travel required to complete tasks is similar to some MMORPG's lol. Has nothing to do with Far Cry

Consumer review by:

Very cool game

 

I play on max settings. Stats: Case: AZZA Solano 1000 PSU: Rosewill Xtreme Series RX950 VGA: BFG Tech GeForce 9800 GT 1GB RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600 CPU: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield Quad 2.66GHz MoBo: ASUS P7P55D LE

Cool, real guns. Great graphics with lots of settings for different systems. Also comes with a benchmark tool ; I love open games that let you do practically whatever you want. If you love Bethesda games or Crysis, you will love this game. It also has...

My only complaint is that you can't go up some of the mountains, there are barriers. Though there might be a way to take that off with the editor, not sure

Extremely repetitive

 

Fantastic graphics

My word, the game is repetitive. It gets so boring after a while! I tried to like the game, but I couldn't. Its just not for me
