Far Cry 2, the next-generation first-person shooter, will take you deep into the most beautiful but also most hostile environments in the world: Africa! More than just a visual and technological achievement, Far Cry, the true sequel to the award-winning PC game, will provide you with an unprecedented gaming experience. Caught between two rival factions in war-torn Africa, you are sent to take out "The Jackal," a mysterious character who has rekindled the conflict between the warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives. In order to fulfil your mission you will have to play the factions against each other, identify and exploit your their weaknesses, and neutralize their superior numbers and firepower with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force. OPEN WORLD - The extensive artistic research combined with the next-gen engine will allow you to explore over 50Km2 of seamlessly rendered African landscape. No game has ever provided such freedom of movement! DUNIA ENGINE - The Dunia Engine was built specifically for Far Cry® 2 by the award-winning Ubisoft Montréal development team. It delivers the most realistic destructible environments, amazing special effects such as dynamic fire propagation and storm effects, real-time night-and-day cycle, dynamic music system, non-scripted enemy A.I. and much more... REAL-TIME IMMERSION - Real-time story telling, systemic auto-healing, minimal in-game interface are just few of the features that will make you feel the tension of being alone against barbarous warlords that threaten thousands of innocent lives. WEAPONS OF CHOICE - Choose from a wide range of weapons to make your way to your primary target. Meet the fight head-on with your machine-gun, go berserk with your machete or make stealth kills as a Sniper. If you feel that the atmosphere is not warm enough, light up your flamethrower and let your enemies and everything around them feel the heat.
Far Cry 2 by Ubisoft is the anticipated sequel to the award-winning original that brings players into the beautiful and hostile world of Africa. Far Cry 2 for Windows Vista/XP features open-ended gameplay that allows you to play the game whichever way you choose, with the choices you make affecting where the game leads you.
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.

The game itself is beautiful. The scenery is very nice. Having said that driving around in the vehicles gets old. If you can use the buses do so, it cuts down on passing through check points. They get old. You can stop outside of them and do away with the soldiers with a sniper. Not much challenge. If you are looking for a fast paced game you might want to skip this. It has some good points and it is just an Ok game. Nothing earth shattering like the original half life etc. I think the original Far cry was more fun, faster paced and Ok, well the bad guys in their pirates hats... that was just goofy. But we are not reviewing FC right now. Even though the game is a first person shooter, you seek out missions and try to find diamonds to upgrade your weapons. Again nothing new. There are better games out there.
Mostly, the respawning enemy issue. Far Cry 2 vanilla has a SEVERE respawn issue with the major crossroads in the game. Clumps of enemies would hound you every turn on the road. Literally. Far Cry 2 FE fixed these issues, along with adding some weirdly absent weapons, such as a double-barreled shotgun and a crossbow - weapons you'd think would've been included with the game to begin with.
Of course, the attention to detail and accuracy surrounding the in-game situation, along with the commitment to immersion are what I take away the most from this game. It is these things that I found the most endearing concerning Far Cry 2. This has been a favorite game of mine for some time, starting with the X360. I had no problem re-buying this game for the PC, just to experience this trip all over again.
The game itself runs all right, although it does freeze occasionally, but you can fix that by hitting cntl-alt-del and escaping back into the game again. Tedious, but only happens a few times an hour. And it does have quicksave so you don't have to redo every tedious bit of driving again and again when you're shot 15 times by thugs you can't find in the brush because the game doesn't tell you where you're hit so you don't know what direction to look in.
