Honest Review

Far Cry 2 is a game where your entering the country Africa and you have some disease you enter a town to find a certain person but you get captured you wake up the town is having a war people are shooting etc a nan takes you and takes you back to his base you work for him Far Cry 2 Contains Some Strong Language the Violence is okay not too bad you can rip bullets out of you ... Far Cry 2 is a really good game a bit different from the first one it's not on a tropical island it's in Africa

violence and language

Holds up better than expected. Great atmosphere, gunplay, well designed world that still looks pretty good even on console. Large blood splashes. No gore though. No stylized machete kills like the sequels. Dark subject matter, described in greater detail in audio logs.
