5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME ACTION ADVENTURE IN ULTRA-REAL ENVIRONMENT, October 21, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Far Cry 2 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Wow. For me, this is cutting edge gaming. I like the total immersion in a beautiful, hostile and huge landscape that allows me to explore a variety of habitats in all kinds of vehicles (including a glider!).

The minimal gamer data intrusions on-screen allow for much more of a feeling of entering the African world. On a widescreen HD TV, this is absolutely breathtaking.

Specific game play details are widely available, but I am very satisfied with the array of weapons, confrontations, variable character behavior for repeat play and startling action set-pieces.

The fact that day becomes night, the weather changes, fires left unattended can burn out of control and that weapons age and fall apart over time enhances all elements of this absolutely terrific game. Hard to imagine areas for improvement on this one given the premise.

And let me say again the terrain for open exploration is huge. Must be about 20 square miles of savannah and jungle. That is very big for a seamless open and widely variegated naturalistic landscape.

The mission is simple. You're a bounty hunter looking for an arms dealer equipping both sides of a bloody (tribal?) war.

Oh yes, here's the coolest thing of all. There's a fantastic Map Editor that allows you to design your own level. Yes, create a world of rivers, plains, jungles and structures. There are over a thousand choices! And then you and your friends can enter it for game play.

Highly recommended. This world is hard to leave...

But you can't use the map editor to make your own single player world, correct? If I am correct, how hard would it have been to add this to single player, really? Why couldn't we just make our own world, and plop down the AIs wherever, and as many as we would like...

Prove me wrong please...

How is this reviewed if it's not out yet? I'm confused. Looks like the PC guys are pretty P'od due to securRom being included on the game limiting to 3 installs. DRM is the primary reason I switched my gaming to the console since there is no DRM to speak of.
