               Good wholesome stealthy fun

              This game is a tension builder. By this I mean that it's not wall-to-wall gunfire and explosions, but requires you to scout out your targets before charging in. This inevitably means periods where the guns aren't blazing. Personally, I think this is a refreshing change from your average shooter.

              The graphics are slick, as is the gameplay and AI. The only thing I didn't enjoy about this otherwise fantastic game is that you have malaria (you heard me, malaria) throughout, and it often shows it's symptoms at the most inopportune times. Although I never played the first Far Cry, I've heard that you had some kind of super powers in it. Not in Far Cry 2 - just malaria.

              The behaviour of fire in the game is well executed, and there's a lot to be said for burning out your enemies from their cover using molotovs or the flamethrower. The landscapes are quite beautiful at times, to the point where you will just want to admire a sunset (before you suddenly remember that you're surrounded by enemies that is).

              There's an excellent selection of weaponry available to suit all styles of gameplay. I personally prefer to snipe from a distance, cause as much havoc as possible with explosives, and pick off the survivors with an uzi - but you could just as easily choose to charge in AK47 a-blazing (although your health bar not might thank you for your carelessness!).

              If you're looking for an all-out war game, this isn't the title for you. If you are interested in a novel variation on the theme, this is just the ticket. A vast free-roaming African wilderness awaits the discerning player with an attention span of more than 15 seconds. After playing this game for a while you'll soon start to associate the gentle thumping of a djembe drum with imminent danger - not a feat that many games can lay claim to!

               DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!

              Unfortunately this game is actually very good. Extremely realistic in places with fantastic enemy AI and beautiful looking landscapes. The weapons and vehicles feel, sound and look awesome. There are times you really do feel like you're in Africa.

              All of this is so disappointing due to a massive glitch in the game called the "73% glitch" or the "closed door glitch". This is a point in the game you come to where you have one main story to complete to further advance the game but the door to the room you need to get into to take the mission is mysteriously closed and cannot be opened thus making the game IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPLETE!

              Highly disappointing as I was really enjoying this game and had put in over 40 hour of game play. It supposedly happens in 60% of copies sold regardless of format, ps3, 360 and pc all affected and as of today there is still no patch to fix it. Google "far cry 2 closed door glitch" for your self.

               Good game, great value

              Graphically this game is near if not top of the tree. The game world is huge and you need a car or fast travel via the bus system. You get a real feel of vast african savannas and the mountain ranges. The days and nights come and go with what feels a real world does.

              The game it self does tend to repeat it self. In that you go find a man, he gives you a mission to kill or destroy some thing then you get medicine or part of the campaign resolved.

              There is also the level builder which in it's self is a major works. Design your own level and even publish it via xbox to others.

              Online games I felt were not the best, but to be honest I didn't give the game much of a chance as I tend to play COD 4-5 and they take some beating.

              At the current price of £9.99 I think it is well worth a look.

               In a word: disappointing...

              These are the main issues why I didn't enjoy this game:

              *Open world becomes pointless, not enough interaction / to do
              *Missions don't feel real and lack real substance
              *Game creates no sense of accomplisment / progress
              *Voiceovers really awful
              *Multiplayer with hardly anyone and taking hours to start matches

              Unless you can play a demo or someone else's copy I would personally avoid this game like the plague.

               i just couldn't get into it...

              okay, the game is decent, but there's NOTHING to do! when something remotely interesting happens it means i have to travel to the other side of the map to get there! the best part that actually got me interested in it was the flamethrower, because burning the forest down really is quite fun.
              the games i want to buy (and probably what everyone else does too) are the ones that really catch my attention, and cause me to play for hours and hours without taking my eyes off the screen and realizing where i am, and this game really doesnt do that. i want to turn it off as soon as im lost in some random shanty town looking for a tiny diamond that means nothing.
