    This article is for all of those that don't have access to the up-coming issue of PC Gamer.

    Dicky B over at the Something Awful forums has so kindly posted up scans of the actual article that has been shipped to subscribers before going on sale next week in the UK. What a nice chap! :rockout:

    ... there y'go! Great article, but will you agree with it? Are you interested in Far Cry 2's completely free-roaming 40+ hours of gameplay?

    I know I am! :rockout:

    For those in the UK interested to know, the mag is out on the 25th, this Thursday!

    Enjoy!

    wow how incredably dissapointing.

    its not an end to farcry 1 its a totally diff game.


    WTF graphics? its like half TF2 cartoon paper crap half old school DX9 stalker bump mapping.....you whanna know what games dont deliver that they always say their going to?


    sequels like REAL sequels were the story ends it just ends they stand you up in the first one and then the second usually the same name ending in "2" finishes the story. not only hav i never seen a game like this other than FFx and X-2 but but seriously...ugh nvm i have never been so disapointed in a game wtf were they thinking? i really wanted farcry2 to just end not start off in f#@$ africa kiling rinos or some shit.

    They were not allowed to continue the Far Cry story... that was a crytek game. This is a ubisoft game, hence the completely different story. Ubisoft was not given an ok to continue on the original story line.

    I think this game is going to be awsome. The whole crazy zombie/mutants from the first game was cool, but I would not be able to do it another time around. It get old.

    Thanks for the post! :toast:

    Man, Crytek is really making Unreal's UE3 run for the hills. I can't wait for the updated engines to go head to head.
