Far Cry 2 is first person RPG that puts players right in the heart of the action. Building on the overwhelming success of the original Far Cry game, it provides plenty of addition features to get to grips with as well as a whole new land to explore. One of the most interesting things about Far Cry 2 is that gamers have the freedom to complete missions in a number of different ways. This makes the game about much more than going through the motions, while there are plenty of cool battle scenes that also come with varied options. Gamers take on the role of a mercenary who finds himself in the heart of the African civil war and must track down his target while trying not to get caught in the crossfire. There is an enormous landscape to explore in Far Cry 2 and more than 40 miles of the African landscape have been recreated in stunning detail. Although getting to know this land can be a lot of fun at first, exploring takes time and detracts a little from the battle sequences. However, when they battles do come they are long and engaging and gamers who can stick it out through the slower moments are sure to have a lot of fun playing Far Cry 2.
