              Top 100 Games Reviewer

              I know reviews are generally pretty sceptical about Far Cry 2, but after playing through, i think this game is spot on!

              Pretty much all of the negative views on this game are based on the fact that it becomes repetive - i can understand that, but, if you are thinking of getting Far Cry 2 but are worried about the repetetive aspect - i've got a few pointers how to avoid it.

              The game gives you the option of catching a bus to get to destinations around the map - this avoids the unfortunate repetive side that Ubisoft mistakenly added to the game: getting attacked by the same bunch of people on the road when driving.

              The bus system works like fast travel - generally speaking i try and avoid fast travelling in games - it takes away from the persistance of real time etc, but in Far Cry 2, it keeps the game interesting, and varied.

              So with that out the way, whats to like about the game?

              Firstly, let me start with the conbat. Its brutal, really brutal. I've not played a single player FPS that feels so real in a long time - the guns feels raw and real, and shooting people sometimes even makes my stomach turn a bit. The attention to detail in this aspect is spot on. For example, you'll shoot someone in the arm, they'll dorp to the floor screaming, then try and out their side arm, firing random shots at you - whip your pistol out and finish them off - satisfying and harshly graphic!

              Guns work more like a multiplayer - you unlock them by completing tasks.

              There are land, water and air vehicles to keep you happy for ages, and going on foot can be equally satisfying.

              If your fortunate to be able to crank the graphics up to maximum, you'll be dead impressed - the bloom effects are brilliant.

              Next posotive aspect is - the map is huge!! i mean huge! There's desert, jungle, swamps, towns and outposts, again the attention to detail here is brilliant. The game also comes with a sandbox style map editor - another excellent feature.

              The characters and voice acting are good, and animations are even better. You can earn the trust of friends who will come and help you out when you get into a tight spot in battle.

              As for the story - good, but not great, its a case of doing loads of little quests for different people, working your way towards the main goal of taking down the big bad man!

              For those who are into immersive, realistic shooters, you should definitely get this one, i for one think Ubi have done a great job here.

              Knocked off one star because you need to actively avoid the repetive side, but dont let this put you off - its easily avoided :)

              Graphics: 10/10
              Storyline: 7/10
              AI: 8/10
              Weapons/Kit: 10/10
              Combat: 10/10
              Vehicles: 9/10

              Overall: 8/10

              MUST BUY!! :)

              Ran great on the following setup:

              AMD Phenom II x4 3.2Ghz
              4GB DDR3 RAM
              Geforce 460gtx 1GB DDR5

              Thanks for reading!

               A really good game...

              This game does get some flak for being samey, unrealistic and boring after a while, but personally I thought it was a great game. The African landscape is epic and some of the sunsets and sunrises peaking through the jungle provides an absolutely stunning visual feast. Game play is fine, enemy AI is reasonable and there are so many ways you can do things - being an RPG effectively you can tackle missions differently which adds replay value. Weapons are good, although the rusting thing is just annoying sometimes, although it adds realism, and it could maybe do with a few more weapons available. Fire physics are amazing and add an extra dimension. And there's nothing like hiding up in the long grass on a hill and picking off confused guards from a guard station far below with a sniper rilfe, never gets old.
              Overall a great game with a good atmosphere and really fun gameplay, even if the story isn't the most magnificent in the wolrd.
