I have had Far Cry 2 since January 2009 and I just can't seem to get into it. I remember the lead up to when this game was going to be launched, with Ubisoft bragging about how they had the most realistic looking fire effects and I was quite excited about getting it.
I don't know what it is but I just can't ever seem to grasp what is going on. I get where to go to pick up missions, but they all just seem really random and not related to anything story wise. I find the driving really tricky, especially when your character turns his head on his own because it's hard enough to see the road as it is. Almost everything about the game feels really awkward. I keep coming back to it but time and time again I find myself getting bored after about an hours worth of play time.
I'm kind of put off buying Far Cry 3 after this, but everybody seems to rate it so highly.
