A Far Cry from the first game.,
This review is from: Far Cry 2 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I only went as far as playing the demo for the first game and hated it. Upon reading enough reviews for this game I finally took a chance and bought it. And it paid off. The graphics are beautiful as well as the elements of realism this game has. Not super realistic as in you get shot twice and you die like in splinter cell or something. But my buddy watched a grenade explosion and said "That was the most realistic grenade explosion I have ever seen, except you would have been killed from where your standing."(I was like 25 feet away.) He is a SGT. in the US Army having served 2 tours in Iraq so I took his word for it, since the closest I have been to war is Black Friday at Wal-Mart. So far with all the exploring you can do in this game it has a lot of longevity to it, as well as a map editor and a decent multiplayer. I highly recommend this game.
