There are no management systems of any sort. Your mission objectives, journal, and standing with other mercenaries is accessed through an out-of-game UI, unlike everything else in the game, and you cant take two missions at once: theres no mission...

Well, the results were surprisingly consistent across all tests. But if you hoped that upgrading from a dual to a quad would give you a noteable increase in FPS for normal gameplay, you will be disappointed by these results. We are confident that...

By Alfred SiewLIKE many open-ended games, Far Cry 2 is one that can be frustrating during the first hour of play but fully rewarding as you delve deeper.You play a hitman sent to a war-torn African country, but end up being a gun-for-hire used by its...

Far Cry 2 is more of a spiritual successor to theoriginal than a sequel. The story puts you in an unnamed African country in the midst of a civil war. You play a mercenary, and your job is to take out an arms dealer known as The Jackal - the man...

When Far Cry was released a few years ago, the game was recommended to me by a friend. One of the most exciting aspects of the original game was the visible distance of the massive open world environments. Where most FPS games up to that point had...

Despite the few quirks in the game, Far Cry 2 is a great game really, it’s a lot of fun and it’s very aesthetically pleasing. Though I think it’s one of those games that people will either love or hate, I don’t think...

When I first played Far Cry 2, I have to admit, I was a little disappointed. I was a very big fan of the original and was expecting a direct sequel. Instead, I found there was very little in common between Far Cry and Far Cry 2 bar the name. The...
