Outstanding Graphics
Ubisoft developed the Dunia Engine specifically for Far Cry 2. Among other things, the Dunia Engine delivers realistic, interactive environments, special effects, real-time night-and-day cycles, and smart enemy AI.

Expansive, Realistic Environment
Far Cry 2 is set in a fictional region of Africa where you are caught between two rival factions at war. The Ubisoft team spent a lot of time filming and photographing in Africa to get all the details of the landscape and native wildlife. The result is a huge gameplay area that is 50 square kilometers, taking players into and out of the jungle and savannah. Wild animals such as zebras, buffalo, gazelle are encountered during the game, with both players and enemies allowed to interact with them.

Far Cry 2 features an incredible level of detail and realism, with a minimal in-game interface to detract from immersion. For example, players will need to navigate the world using an in-game map and navigation system, weapons will disintegrate over time, and fires will spread and propagate.

Each of the actions a player takes is reflected in the environment and changes the content of the game. To fulfill your mission, you need to play the enemies against each other, using both strategy and skill.

Huge Range of Weapons and Vehicles
Far Cry 2 offers gamers a wide range of weapons, from a machete for hand-to-hand combat, to a sniper rifle that can stealthily pluck off enemies from afar. As weapons disintegrate over time, they might jam or even explode in your hand.

There are also a large range of vehicles such as gliders, trucks, cars, and boats that will let you fly, drive, slide, and hover over the open landscapes.

Multiplayer Options for up to 16 Players
Far Cry 2 supports up to 16 players and has four gameplay modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Diamond, and Uprising. Players can choose from six different classes in multiplayer, each with its own set of pros and cons. Just as in the single-player mode, multiplayer games will feature dynamic elements, making each session unique.

You can explore the world of Far Cry 2 from inside a car or flying on a glider.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flawed design wears on you November 19, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
What defines a good sandbox game? Sandbox game design is a relatively new genre made possible by advances in processor and graphics capabilities. But what makes one sandbox design good and another one bad? This is not an easy question to answer, given that a sandbox is designed to provide a variety of gameplay experiences which can lead to different, subjective opinions on the matter. I've been playing Far Cry 2 lately, and unfortunately I think the game has helped me understand ways a sandbox game can fail.

I attribute most of these design flaws to the changes that were made to convert the original Far Cry design from a "partly" sandbox game into a fully open world sandbox game. In the original Far Cry the player was presented with a series of islands to traverse, one at a time. Normally these islands would contain one or more enemy concentrations between you and your goal. This provided a good pace to the game. You were always working toward a clear goal, but due to the size of the islands, the draw distance, and the variety of combat strategies, there was freedom in how to achieve it. In the big picture it wasn't a true sandbox because there was no ability to set your own goals; you were stuck on a given island until you triggered the next cut scene by killing the right person, blowing up the right structure, or arriving at the right door.

With Far Cry 2 there is complete freedom to travel anywhere you want, accept the missions you want and perform them any way you want. Plus, many of the signature Far Cry experiences like long distance sniping, vehicles, and assaulting small enemy outposts are part of the experience. What could go wrong here?

A lot, as it turns out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A critical look at a solid shooter. October 25, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First thing's first: Far Cry 2 isn't Far Cry 2. That is, this game really doesn't have anything to do with Far Cry, other than its name. No Jack Carver, no Val, and (thankfully) no mutants. So, what is it about? Well, there isn't much in the way of story, but it basically goes like this: You are a mercenary hired to hunt down and assassinate a notorious arms dealer called The Jackal. The reason for this is The Jackal is supplying weapons to rivaling African factions, thus making possible an all-out war. In order to find him, you have to go to work for these warring factions so you can trace the supply line of arms back the target. So the game has you performing a number of side-missions that lead up to the Jackal in one way or another.

As far as your character goes, you have a number of people to choose from at the outset. I don't think it matters much, as you don't seem to gain or loose any skills or qualities based off who you pick. It does, however, change the game a little bit. Say you pick person A instead of person B. If you hadn't picked person A, he would have been a character in the game, and you could become allies with him along the way. Either way, I think your character of choice has little to do with the game's outcome. I don't know why they even made this an option.

Below is a basic break down of some of the game's other elements.

The first thing you notice when you start the game is the amazing environment around you. Plants, water, buildings, character models, and even the weather effects are all beautiful. I've been playing games for a long time, and I can honestly say I've never been as awed by animated scenery as I have by Far Cry 2's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far Cry 2 Is Awesome. October 23, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I started to play Far Cry 2 I didn't know what to expect. I heard so many different stories and rumors about this game. Some people said this game was good and some said this game was bad. Well I found out this game is really, really good.

The first thing I noticed playing Far Cry 2 is how huge of a gaming world this game has got. I can't think of another game out there that has got as huge of a gaming world as Far Cry 2. At the beginning of the game you are in the back seat of a vehicle being driven around by someone and you get a chance just to look at the surrounding scenery. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful but at the same side you see signs of war everywhere. You are put into a war torn African country ripped apart by a civil war fought between two large rebel groups. While I'm traveling in the vehicle down a dirt road, I noticed refugees running past me trying to get out of this country. Along the dirt road there are checkpoints everywhere manned by different rebel groups. At one checkpoint we got stopped by rebel soldiers and my driver had to promised to bring back beer for them if they would allow us to proceed past the checkpoint. I couldn't believe it. You can actually use bribery in this game. I noticed there was a small plane flying above me and I found out that rich people with money are paying pilots to fly them out of the country. When I saw all this stuff I thought to myself that probably happens in real life in war torn zones around the world.

I have never been to Africa but I'm sure this is as close as you can get to the real thing. There is a lot of detail put into this game. For instance I noticed little things like leaves blowing off trees and plants swaying around.
