Horrible

Fail Cry

Spoiler Alert: The Gameplay = Facepalm. There’s a part in the game where you have to fight a giant demon wearing a mask. Also there’s a part where one villain is attacking you with a knife, in your head, and there’s like fifty of him, he never stops coming. That makes me sound lazy for describing it that way, but that’s the only way. Then you stab this villain and when you wake up, you’re told that you killed him…. Yeah, even though that was clearly a dream, you killed him. He’s dead, he’s not coming back. No more of his weird nonsensical focking speeches, he died in a dream you had, and now I’m off to face the main, main villain of the game.

When it’s 2012 & you’re still releasing a game that has protect the dumb A.I. missions in it. When I’m a bad azz, taking down an entire fleet of armed enemies with a bow & arrow, grenades, molotovs, machete & I only earn 300 experience points; then I go to another island, play a game of texas hold-em and earn 3,000 exp points. When the game tells you to land a hang glider on a long stretch of ground, in a game filled with hills, rocks, & trees, the only way I ever safely landed one was in deep water. When I unlock a really cool looking gun I might actually want to shoot around, but it costs more than I can keep in my wallet but I can’t craft a bigger wallet because I can’t kill a Sha

Very Good

Over-hyped Let Down

Farcry 2, wherefore art thou Farcry 2. This game lacks innovation and originality. It's fun, it's exciting and definitely worth the rent. It's Farcry 2.5. Devs, do better.

I like the story but at the end I felt like something was missing. There was just a little bit more to tell, a little more to see. Sadly, Farcry 3 sold itself on its predecessor.

I expected more from this game but I would still recommend it to any serious gamer.

I didn't know what to expect when I first decided to rent this game. All I knew was that the rating was solid and the user reviews were intriguing to say the least.

PLAY THIS GAME.
Great graphics, story, game play, upgrades, guns, types of guns, customization to types of guns, Plenty of side-quests, crafting, running for your life, being a ninja, more running for your life, etc...

There is at times a lot of tactical thinking involved in the quests, but literally thousands of ways to complete them, which allows for hours of replay-ability. There are few, but enough choices for transportation, as you will be in a rush to get to your next target. That's not to say that driving isn't fun in this game, in fact its very realistic.

Just get this game.
I sent it back a week ago, then went and bought it full price because I didn't want to wait for it to be sent back.
