    A Few Notable Bugs Bring This Otherwise Good Game Down

    Rated on August 11, 2009 by topmostjameser

    At this point I'm wary to buy anything to do with Ubisoft, especially for the PC. It seems that virtually anything Ubisoft touches that ends up on PC is either utter crap to begin with, or is hampered...

    A spectacular game that has all the merits just like its predecessor

    Rated on August 20, 2009 by franklinzhang

    Far Cry 2 is different from the first but it has gotten much better. Gameplay: 8/10. The game is very sandbox and open-world, which is the best part of it because you can do whatever you want. Just...

    Feels like an MMO. The "Hollywood version" of Stalker

    Rated on August 27, 2009 by stheelders

    Far Cry 2 is one of the most beautiful games I ever played. During the first 10 minutes, it's very impressive and exciting. The beginning of the story feels like it's taken from a movie. After the int...

    Amazing graphics, great combat control, amazing weapons, mediocre driving, no depth, a hint of a story-line.

    Beautiful open world fps with rpg elements

    Rated on January 30, 2013 by esgyear

    I've always been mildly interested in playing this game but never really got around it. Then I saw this on sale and decided to buy it. Plus Far Cry 3 is just around the corner and Far Cry 2 has become...

    Far Cry 2 is a Great Game with good graphics but story is bad and long

    Rated on September 02, 2009 by arashyt

    Far Cry's underwhelming story makes playing longer than a few hours seem pointless, even with all its successes.

    Rated on August 19, 2010 by Decretum

    Set in the jungles of sub-Saharan Africa, Far Cry 2 opens with the protagonist riding a cab through a dusty road into an unspecified African country in the midst of war. His goal is the elimination o...
