From today's standpoint, Far Cry 2 seems like a b-tech open-world shooter. It has a big world with nothing in it, just a few guys that need to be shot, otherwise just blandness all around. However, in 2008, it must have been a huge hit, since it is one of the first games that introduced important game mechanics that influenced a lot of games going forward.

I spent quite some hours just enjoying the african nature and the day and night cycle, but the far driving distances and gameplay decisions made it impossible for me to force myself to keep going after some 20-30 hours.

Positive points
+ gun handling
+ graphics, lighting & atmosphere
+ africa setting
Negative points
- tedious respawning of bandit camps
- empty world
- fast travel system almost useless due to very few and far apart bus stops

Beautiful aesthetics, even today, but core game play is dull. Shallow story, repetitive missions, too much effort required to get around.

Positive points
Beautiful environments and sounds.
Negative points
Repetitive missions, forgettable story, too much time spent travelling.
