    The graphics are beautiful, but that alone can't compensate all the flaws this game has. The missions are boring and repetitive, you'll spend an awful lot of time driving around to reach your goal which is also boring. While driving around you'll also encounter scout posts where you'll be attacked, and the worst is that the enemies respawn there every mission, which makes for a frustrating experience.The AI is horrible. they don't take cover or try to flank, the only thing they do is walk straight towards you while shooting at you. The stealth mechanic is broken as once an enemy catches a glance of you all enemies will immediately know the EXACT spot where you are and will continue to follow you around until either you or they are dead. The story is dull and virtually non-existant. The characters are all one-dimensional and the voice acting is atrocious; all characters talk extremely fast and sound emotionless.
    Don't believe the hype and stay away from this game, it truly was a chore to play.

    where do i start i hated this game with every fiber of my being. it had so many problems and that isnt even counting the glitches and bugs. it may look good but other than that it is garbage. every single person is an ennemy which means as soon as you see people get out of your car and start shooting and on top of that they are so dumb it is easy to take them all out with carful timing. there is also no mini map which means you have to pull out the map at every fork to see which way to go and it is very time consuming and gets very tedious. great idea for a game but unfourtunatly they failed to deliver and i advise you stay away from this game and dont even rent it Expand

    Ok here goes. The bugs are massive. The graphics are good. The storyline is terrible. The enjoyment is almost non-exsistent. Example: When you have to drive from one side of map to the other side is not fun. Then when the A.I spawns almost instantly in spots you just cleared is also not fun. They should spawn in a day or two. Also the A.I are bullet sponges. When I can fire half a clip of a ak47 in them and they stay up is retarded, but they can kill me with 5 or 6 bullets on easy is just stupid. Sorry just had to rant. Expand

    I have to tell that i was pretty eager on starting this game. After 4 hours and 12% completion i got definitely BORED to hell with the driving and the endlessly re-spawning of guard points. The games is gorgeous but i just can't stand this anymore. Far Cry 2 is done for me.

  1. Whatever happens you'll believe it's a real world and a fantastic setting for the action. It's not as dense or as varied as, say, Oblivion - you'll go somewhere, kill everyone, every mission - but it's utterly convincing and engrossing. [Dec 2008, p.98]
  2. Combat is thrilling – each weapon packing a solid, vicious blast; movement suggesting heft and momentum. [Dec 2008, p.80]

    Even if I find the multiplayer too staid, I find the possibility of cool user-made levels (via the easy map editor) tantalizing. Like any good Grand Theft Auto, Far Cry 2's overall package makes up for any individual flaws -- enough for it to be on a short list of best FPS games this year -- and so it's fitting to summarize it as...well, GTA: Mogadishu.
