Good review, but it's made out to be better than it is.
I was a huge fan of the original Far Cry...HUGE fan. One of my favorite FPS games. You could imagine how anxious I was for a sequel. I followed the development of this game for at least 6 months just hearing better and better things. But ultimately, what a piece of crap.
It's GTA in FPS mode, set in Africa. The only difference is, GTA is fun to play. I could go on and on about it as I do have a lot of legitimate points but it's not the time.

I thought it was fun for about a half hour then I played it on and off for a week, haven't touched it since. What a waste of $50...almost as big of a waste as CoD4.

Same here!

Like in most things in this world, different strokes for different folks. I find Far Cry 2 to be a blast & would put COD4 in the top 3 games I've played in this last year. This list may be joined soon by Dead Space which so far has been fantastic.

I wouldn't say FC2 is bad or even poor....but certainly hasn't lived up to my expectations I'm afraid....kinda bored of with it to be quite honest. Perhaps I just have to give it more time....

I think it can be real fun if we had our own gang instead of working undercover for another group..

Being an old fart I'm enjoying sniping from a distance, but I'm really disappointed I haven't been jumped by a bunch of lions ( or even charged by a water buffalo ) I made a clean one-shot kill on one of the big buggers thinking it would increase my health and it didn't, even after I tried to field dress it with my knife..
Not a bad game, but they missed some opportunities to make it a great game.

I agree with "3 of 7" They made only herbivore animals because then all the non herbivores would kill the herbivore and it would be hectic. And being charged by a water buffalo is not fun, Its scary and fast! Animals do not increase your health they made a fare healing system in my opinion. Its still a great game considering the Mapeditor etc.

I believe there are reports in PC Gamer UK of a future patch including animals such as lions, tigers and hippos. I doubt they'll be enough to warrant more of a desire to play the game, and the same for future patches beyond that, but we can dream.
