Game Review Far Cry 2, Bloody Conflict in the Land of Africa

Far Cry 2 Review

After finishing facing the mutants in Far Cry 1story game franchises this then switches to a conflict civil war going on in Africa.

It seems Ubisoft know how frustrated I am when facing the
mutant in Far Cry 1 game which is difficult to ask for forgiveness, so the concept of the story began to be completely changed :v

Yep, the story of the game Far Cry 2 this really has nothing to do with what’s in Far Cry 1so you can directly play it without having to know the story of the game games previously.

Far Cry 2 also became the forerunner to hold it Far Cry franchise by Ubisoftwithout Crytek who was previously the developer of Far Cry 1 game.

Therefore, for those of you who have played Far Cry 1surely you will find a lot of differences, both in terms of graphics and the variety of content inside
in games.

Outline, Far Cry 2 game this is very different from Far Cry 1but I myself assume that all the differences that exist in games this is going in a good direction.

Because, Far Cry 2 actually managed to display a open world games
which is much more realistic than Far Cry 1, of course with more improved graphics, and with a variety of new content in it.

So far, I even still think Far Cry 2 as Far Cry games
the best of all franchisebecause games It has its own unique features that you won’t find anywhere else Far Cry series another.

So, what are the factors that make games is this so interesting for you to play? Just take a look at the following reviews:


Far Cry 2 tells the story of a mercenary who is assigned to a region on the African continent to end the civil war that occurs between groups APR (Alliance for Popular Resistance) and UFLL (United Front for Liberation and Labor).

The APR group contains people from outside the African continent who want the region to join the territory of other African countries, while the UFLL faction contains local residents who want the region to become an independent country.

It was the differences in understanding between the two groups that eventually led to a conflict that never ended. This condition is also made worse by the presence of someone who is nicknamed The Jackal who take advantage of being a supplier of weapons to both sides.

Well, you as the main character are assigned to find and kill The Jackal to end the conflict in the region.

Of course, the mission that you get will not be completed easily, because at the beginning of the story the main character you play will be affected by malaria, so inevitably throughout the story you also have to struggle with the disease while looking for information about its whereabouts. The Jackal.

Story from Far Cry 2 This is indeed very complicated, but on the other hand it is also very interesting.

Why is that? Because along games Here you will see various events that are very relate to occur in the real world, starting from how a conflict was born, the struggle for power, betrayal, and negotiation efforts that both parties wanted to do.

All those complicated conflicts are presented in games this, and that makes me interested in finishing it over and over again, because there are many things that can be learned from the story, not just focusing on the shots.


I mentioned above that Far Cry 2 it has very unique features, some of which you won’t even find in the franchise Far Cry games other. Then, about what features are in it? games this? Check out the following discussion:

1. Realistic Map Features

Far Cry 2 Review

What can you do? explore of a feature folder, at least the indicator in the upper corner of the screen is used to determine the location of a mission. The majority are like that feature folder which exist in games other, but not in Far Cry 2 game

Not like games other, folder which exist in Far Cry 2 game really held by the main character.

So, if you want to know where the mission site is, then you have to hold onto folder first in your hands.

Even more interesting, while holding folder, you will not be able to shoot or attack the enemy. So if you meet an enemy in the middle of the road, you have to save it first folderand switch to weapons.

The mechanics will indeed be a little troublesome for you at the beginning gamesbut over time this feature makes you addicted, because of your ability to recognize the area inside folder will be more accurate and feel more challenging.

2. Weapons That Can Rust

Far Cry 2 Review

Weapons do become spotlight main in FPS gamesand in the Far Cry 2 game this mechanism is really made in great detail, where the weapons you use can rust and jam when used for too long.

The moment of the jammed weapon will be very influential, because you will not be able to shoot the enemy when your weapon is stuck.

Not only jammed, your weapons can even explode if you are forced to use them. This can only be overcome by changing weapons in
inventoryand if you don’t, then get ready to be annoyed when you face the enemy.

Lots player who eventually complained about this feature, which in the end the rusty weapon feature was deprecated in Far Cry games next.

However, in my opinion, this feature makes Far Cry 2 game looks very realistic, because like it or not, you have to make sure first to update the weapon so it doesn’t get jammed easily right before carrying out a mission.

3. Malaria Penyakit

Besides struggling to find The Jackal, the main character you play also has to fight from the malaria he suffers.

Just like in the real world, your character will also experience symptoms like humans who are suffering from malaria.

The most obvious example is that your character will not be able to run for too long, if you keep forcing it, then his vision will suddenly blur and his breath is very panting.

Throughout games In progress, you will also meet some moments where the whole screen will turn strange which indicates that your character must take malaria medicine at that time.

The malaria medicine provided is also limited, so you have to carry out a special mission first to get the cure.

4. Buddy

As the name suggests, Buddy is a friend who will later help you when you are pressed during the battle. Buddy usually will only appear after your character is dying and in dire need of help.

Besides that, you can also complete missions together Buddy to get more familiarity points.

However, you should also remember that Buddy just an ordinary support character who could die easily.

So, try not to be too far away when together with Buddybecause if he dies, then you have to find someone else to replace him.


Talking about graphics, Far Cry 2 presents a very stunning graphic presentation, showing a very real African plain region. Each area in the folderit’s really made with detail so it’s very supportive for you guys

Various fauna and flora also have special interactions as you pass. Some small plants will look like they’ve been trampled on if you walk past them, and their branches will also break if you shoot them.

One other very interesting detail in games This is contained in the animation of the spread of fire that can spread widely according to the direction of the wind.

For example, if you throw a Molotov cocktail in the middle of a meadow, the fire will slowly propagate through the surrounding plants to burn the entire area and leave only a barren black area.

It must be admitted that games it does have a realistic level above the average in its era, and that makes my experience when playing
Far Cry 2 very hard to forget.
