Grab your Molotov cocktails or flamethrower and watch fire burn life out of all living beings. Discover and learn how to use this new amazing feature that brings a new dimension to the usual FPS gameplay.

  • Destructible Environment – No more thinking about obstacles, everything is breakable and alterable, even in Multiplayer mode! The DUNIA engine’s RealTree technology also delivers the most realistic nature deterioration system ever.

Feel the tension of never knowing an enemies’ reaction thanks to a non-scripted AI and remember, in Africa you are never really safe.

  • Real-Time Immersion – Real-time story telling, systemic auto-healing, minimal in-game interface are just few of the features that will make you feel the tension of being alone against barbarous warlords that threaten thousands of innocent lives.

  • Weapons Of Choice – Choose from a plethora of weapons to make your way to your primary target. Meet the fight head-on with your machine gun, go berserk with you machete or make stealth kills as a Sniper. If you feel that the atmosphere is not warm enough, ramp up your flamethrower and let your enemies and everything around them feel the heat.

  • Vehicles – Fly, Drive, Run, slide and hover over the huge open world with your glider, trucks, cars, boats and much more.

  • Multiplayer - Challenge your friends in Far Cry® 2 but watch your back because you never know who your true friends are and who might betray you! All the single player technical features are present in multiplayer mode, what you destroy in SP, you destroy in MP. All the modes people love to play with some new ones.

The single player is pretty good but its hard to compete against some of the other titles out there...

I'm glad it has a strong modding scene, mainly due to the easy level editor.
