Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2
Okay I will admit it when I first picked up this game I was skeptical but after the first five minutes of playing this game I was pulled in SPOILER ALERT the main story to this game is that there is a war going on in Africa between two factions the UFLL and the APR there are also these militia men who have been sent in by other countries to stop the war but they make it worse rather than help it the main antagonist of the game is a man know only as the "The Jackal" he is the person responsible for the war between the two factions you are a mercenary that is working for the government and your main objective is to kill "The Jackal" along the way you will be working for both of the factions you will make friends in the game that will help your if your in a pickle you also have a wide variety of weapons at your disposal like machineguns, shotguns, sniper rifles etc. over time your weapons will jam and break so you cant go threw the whole game with the same gun you can also drive all kinds of vehicles such as cars, trucks, boats, and even hand gliders one of the coolest features that this game has is the wildfire when ever a fire breaks out it spreads according to the direction the wind is blowing the only problem that I have with this game is the voice acting (sometimes when the characters are talking their mouths aren't even moving) and the story all your doing in the game is tracking down one guy and that's it there are no twists and turns in the story still this is a great game and I recommend it
this game is awesome for many reasons. my reason is .. i like the responsiveness to enemy ai and how they try drive by's and actually want to run you over with their car. another reason is that the graphics are amazing. and you can do like matrix type assault moves. my favorite move is where i dash into an enemy and pump with a shotgun bullet to the face or balls. the in-game music is lame so i replace it with my favorite music on boombox that being hard rock metal music. the sound the enemy makes is awesome its like they actually feel the pain and i like to see them die funny deaths like using mortars and stuff. another thing is the fact you can do whatever you want in the game. you can also use the glide thingy that allows you to air by shooting or sumthn like that i think. but any ways the reason i mainly like this game is for the single player so no one can tell me where to shoot and camp on multiplayer to insure we i win which i dont usually care for.
Far Cry 2 Awesome
I got Far Cry today and it was wow. The first thing i noticed was that it had a huge map. The graphics were amazing, especially when the "Malaria" Effect is blurring your vision. Second thing is that when they said you can do anything anytime you want, they meant it. You can virtually do anything that you want. You can even kill your friends. Third thing is that it is very realistic. The guns jam as dirt, rust, etc. and will eventually blow up on your face. The cars, if they take enough damage, will stop working and you'll need to fix it, and the car gets dirty over time. When you start a fire it spreads like the real thing, wind even affects how the fire spreads. When you get shot, there are times when you are in your last health bar and you need to take a bullet off your arm or relocate a broken wrist, etc. Fourth thing is that the enemy AI is very responsive. They coordinate their attack just like when they flank you. You need to keep moving or you'll be dead in no time. Overall this game is outstanding. I would recommend this game to anybody who likes playing shooting games.
Good Gameplay, Great Online
I got this game a couple of weeeks ago. Some friends told me it was a waste of money, so I got it to occupy me while I waited for Battlefield 3. To start off, it's not a waste of money. If anything, it's the best free roam game Iv'e played. Yes, there is a lot of driving but its worth it. Your guns jam, you pull bullets out of yourself, everything that happens in the middle of a gun fight, happens in this game. Online gameplay is quite exciting and is almost as good as MW2, but thats just me. MAp editor is also fun, but I warn you now. Making maps takes quite some time, even to make a decent one. Overall-Great Gamplay, Awesome Graphics, Fantastic Online
When i picked this game up from the mall (ebgames). I was so excited to go and play it, when i got home i ran upstairs and turned on my t.v and ps3. When i went through the menu and clicked online and did capture the diamond (Best online game ever). I was blown away on how perfect the online play was it was smooth and everything. When i got killed however i was waiting to respawn to the game that was what got me it was 20 seconds. It's not bad but when your playing a game with a 5 point limit 20 seconds is annoying. The loading in the game is also a little annoying, but other than that i was amazed on everything when the producers said "open world" they meant it the open world is amazingly detailed. The game play however is really fun driving is a little annoying and the short life span too. Overall this game is better than cod4 which i didn't think a game could do. The story is good and the map editor is the best thing detail to how high the mountains peak to the little grass on the ground. My opinion is GET THIS GAME!
great open world game
Far cry 2 is very fun to play and is very very realistic.
Cool but could be better
Ok well I'm going to come out straight and say what I really think about this game. It is a good game but it could be better. For one the graphics are good like the weapons and trees but the people aren't so good. When you catch something on fire it looks real and the trees burn down and makes it really cool to watch. But the people look like ps2 graphics. Another thing that I like about this game is that you have so many weapons to choose from and unlock as you play. But one weapon that I find worthless is the flare gun. The only thing it does is start fires. One bad thing about the game is that when you drive a car or truck everywhere you look there is a camp filled with bad guys so mostly I just sneak around them. One thing I also like is how you can build your own map for multiplayer and that is awsome.
To be Honest...
This game isnt that bad, but its not good either...The Controls are good and easy to get use to, The Storyline is a Long, bumpy, yet awesome road, and not to mention Confusing! The people in this game are too "Up running" . The just tell you your missions and not give any details, plus the game can glitch a lot if your not careful. But the storyline is very Unique. You get to choose a character and set off on a Mercenary job, to Kill the Jackal that has armed both sides and has started a Conflict that could engulf all of Africa. Once you arrive, you end up with a bad case of Malaria, and if constantly have to start taking pills, and once you run out, you end up going on some annoying mission just to get two or three more pills. But this game is not bad game either, You have a variety of weapons that you can buy, the Currency in this game is Rough Diamonds, and its also fun to go treasure hunting because you never know how much you`ll get. and you can get friends in this game that will help you stay alive and keep them for side-quests and all... But this game isnt bad, its worth the money.
Awesome but too much driving
This game is fun but there is too much driving and is extremely long. The weapons are good. You get machine guns, snipers,, pistols, shot guns, grenades, RPG's, etc. The best weapon is the flamethrower and it allows you to set an entire Savannah or forest on fire . The gameplay is pretty good but i do prefer call of duty but the one thing that is good about the game compared to call of duty is that its really open and if you shoot characters the story line will change. Also, the game is really good in terms of graphics and sound quality. You really feel like your in a war torn country and see every last detail to the cracks in trees to bullet holes. Overall I think this is a really good game although there is a lot of driving you do get to do whatever you want and if your a fan of first person shooters or open games than you should buy this.
Fantastic game, if you don't have ADD
This is a very good game. As I said, if you have attention problems or love Halo's multiplayer, you might not like this game. You just need to put in a little effort. Some may argue, "It's a video game, you shouldn't have to put in effort" but they have attention problems. This is not your average game. A lot of previous reviews have called this game boring because of it's big map, or enemies in campaign mode that actually pose a threat. If it's too easy, just raise the difficulty and vice versa. It's a high quality immersive game. I have and play Modern Warfare 2, and almost couldn't care less about anyone in the game but Soap, Price, and Ghost. There is just one problem that really ticks me off. And that's in the Map creator. And it was mostly my fault. Your map needs to pass validation, which I did not know at the time. I spent over seven hours on one map. It didn't pass validation. That actually was completly my fault.
