I feel like this game was hyped up a lot and just didnt deliver. The advertisements were misleading ("drive anything/ fly anything" - seriously? all you get to drive are jeeps that dont go faster than 40km/h. and a hang glider? really?) there were a few new mechanics that made the game unique, such as fire propagation, mission timing and planning, realistic environmental physics. however, they just seemed like a few small pieces that didn't add up to anything great. the AI did some pretty cool things at times (like throwing a grenade at my abandoned jeep so i couldnt make a getaway), but it seemed to be too all-knowing and too accurate (if i drove by a guard post, they would keep shooting at me without missing (through brush and trees) well beyond a reasonable range. the repetition is probably the worst part of the game by far. you get a mission to kill some person. but wait! you get a phone call from a "buddy" who tells you to do something else before you kill the target so that they benefit from it somehow. so now you have two choices: 1)kill the target and 2)kill the target and make a new friend. i usually went with choice 2 because i got to shoot more stuff. after completing the task, my buddy always needed to be bailed out from a fire fight. does this sound like a familiar mission to you? it should because that is what the entire freakin game is about. maybe im just setting the bar too high. far cry 2 was just another hyped up first person shooter with nothing spectacular to make it worthwhile.

Yeah I agree it was hyped up all the way through development. It was repetitious and to be frank kinda boring after a few hours of gameplay even on multiplayer. It was kinda like Ubisoft were trying to deliver a revolutionary game like Crytek did with Far Cry (Ubi was only the publisher) and failed miserably. I don't know what else to say really... STALKER, now there is a really good shooter/RPG type game!

There is no fully destructible worlds, not that much vehicles, could use with a actual story like in Far Cry 1, instead of Quests. And Ingame create your own weapons up from scratch, say for example get a Colt Python Trigger with a Deagle Barrel and bullet piercing armor
