Kinketsu Posted September 22, 2008 Share Posted September 22, 2008 I couldn't find a main thread about Far Cry 2 anywhere. There is only one talking about videos of the map editor from the summer, and various mentions in different threads. Since the game is coming out very soon, I thought it maybe deserved its own thread for discussion. Far Cry 2 is coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox360 next month, on October 24th for the UK, pretty much in the middle of the wild "Quick release all the games at the same time!" season. Moving away from the hero, location and sci-fi elements of the first game, Far Cry 2 takes place in a war-torn African nation. The game is a first person shooter of the sandbox variety, allowing you to roam free over 20 square miles. Apparently though it's not just a lot of empty space with a corridor shooter stuck in the middle of it, game and plot progression are meant to be as free form as the traveling around. The PC version was recently reviewed in PC Gamer UK and they awarded it 94%. Scans from the issue can be seen at this fan site. A list of Xbox achievements has been released here. The PS3 version supports trophies, so we can expect them to probably be the same as the achievements. Gametrailers etc has a lot of videos on the game, some of which you can find here. When I first saw the game I didn't think much of it, but the more I watch the gameplay videos that are scattered about, the more it looks pretty cool to me. Just cruising around, finding little outposts, raiding them for supplies, doing a mission from time to time. And the way the story changes around your buddy system could be really interesting. On the other hand, it might just be more big talk like so many games have done, and I don't like the degrading weapons. Still, I'm probably willing to give this a try this October, alongside Fallout 3 for a big explorin' autumn bonanza Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
