Good

Good game, very tedious.

Far Cry 2 is a very, very unique game. I haven't ever played anything like this. Never had to pull bullets out of my leg or patch myself up.

Pros and cons:

Pros:

1) The game is beautiful. Nice environments and the character models are also nice.

2) The tutorial to start the game is very helpful to get you to understand the ways of the game and different things to do.

3) Like I said to start, one pro I'll give is that it's unique. I've never played anything quite like this.

Cons:

1) The game, as I said at the start, gets very tedious. You have to drive to every mission, because it will take you forever and then some to get there on foot.

2) The enemies can take a full magazine and still stand there shooting their shotgun at you. Headshots are always 1 shot, 1 kill, but the health of the enemies is ridiculous.

3) Stealth is garbage. They want you to scout the guard posts and sneak in and take everyone out, but when you go to stab the sniper, the entire country of Africa rushes at you and then you have to pull bullets out of you leg - it just gets downright ridiculous.

Overall, this game is a good rental, bad buy, in my opinion. Unless you like tedious games - whoever you are...

The game really starts off pretty cool, but I have to agree with everyone else on this one. The driving around really gets boring!!! The Multiplayer is ok but like everyone else says the weapons physics just aren't there. GTA combined with (random FPS).

The shooter elements in Far Cry 2 are very good and highly developed but to get to these shooter elements you must first travel for miles bored to death.This wouldn't take long but every road you're attacked and your car/boat breaks down.Once this happens you must deal with an annoying health system.The online is good but their are too many loading screens and not enough people playing or game modes.There is a map creator but I don't like it for it never tells you how to work it.
