Far Cry 2 is not a name for this game obviously, as it has nothing to do with previous Far Cry titles, or any other associated content, The Far Cry Universe nevertheless should have been like this long time ago.
I'm going to be very brief, but forget about the Story in this game, the fact is that you're going to have all in one package a game that its:
-Huge as Oblivion was, not so populated with foes, but definitely BIG, and you will Cry for how Far you have to drift across the jungle to get from point A to B (nevertheless the Driving is fun, and you can take out Outposts, find Diamonds and other things that are really into the Zelda RPG stuff, Love it!)
-Good looking as COD4, yes my friends, this is an open world game, and FPS a the same time, and it looks far better than any other game you have played of Open World, and it looks comparable (arguably true) to Call Of Duty or any other good looking game outhere, Awesome!
-A lot of Variety to choose, jump, killed, burn, slaughter, stealth (really, i did), whatever you like, really, Freedom is one but the word that reigns in Africa's Far Cry, unleashed your inner beast and get ready to transform the Jungle.
-Story Line is Super Lenghty, I'm very surprised this game looks so awesomely good, and can packed a Gargantuan Map, and about 40 hrs of Gameplay, plus the extra 4 missions for pre-ordering (I got them right!)
-Sprinting and healing yourself out of trouble was never so real, imagine a character that will try to heal himself all the time according to the wounds he had:
if you're burning you will spat your body around to turn it off, If you got shot in the leg or the hand you will take out the bullet with a gory effect, and you will see the Whole you had because of been shot, you will put bandages to your arms, etc, what can be more real than that? Uh?
-A very useful GPS system which EA should learn about when making a game like Burnout Paradise that you can't just find your way around.
-Incredibly good Physics and environments, everything blows better than Call of Duty or Gears, honestly amazing job, you can just compared this to Frosbite Engine of Dice.
-You get to choose your character, and this is part were this gets interesting, as this game has in it all the right ingredients that the original Mercenaries from Pandemic had, huge environments, Vehicles, blowing and shooting guys, making people do what they don't want to do and then kill them, excellent job in one word. This game is more Mercenaries 2 than the real Pandemic recent launched title, really.
- A complete Day and Night time frame which makes it more interesting
- You got Malaria, many people might hate it; but makes it a little bit more interesting and real, that's i Believe the main reason, this game is Real, like the Water you drink everyday. And that's exactly what developers wanted to show, a Real world of events.
-Value money multiplayer, which is great, feels like any other good FPS multiplayer in stores, and you have the great Add, if you like to work hard, to do your own maps, forget the Halo 3 complicated Forge, this is really easy, and they look great, Plus Ubi will make public the best ones available, your work as a gamer gets a taste of Glory to put it somehow.
-This game packs enough content and stuff to keep you busy for a long time, and for the price is much better than many other games you buy for same or little less money, this game is more a good buy than COD4. Seriously!
- This is the part where you're going to disagree, I think this game is not inferior or worse than any other game of this year, or even near future Holiday Titles, it might be better even for certain individuals.
