Far Cry 2 PC Review

 

PC gamers know the significance of Far Cry. Released in 2004 by Crytek and Ubisoft, it came pretty much out of nowhere and dazzled gamers with its bright, outdoor environments, large levels with huge view distances, and solid action delivered with an...

Gorgeous shooter with a ton of replayability

 

The scenery is stunningly beautiful, and the sounds make you feel like you are really there in the jungles, savannahs, and deserts of Africa. The dialogue is also well done, even if it is to support a rather weak storyline. If you enjoy adventure in...

The storyline is uninspired (everyone is fighting everyone). Long periods of driving can wear on you as the game goes on unless you just enjoy driving through the jungle. And the AI, while mostly very good, sometimes falls short of impressive

This could have been a great game were it not for many poorly implemented features and mind numbing repetition.
