While we are focusing on the PC version today, I have nonetheless extensively played the Xbox 360 version as well. In the console version you are allowed to save only at designated spots which are represented by blue wall mounted boxes. In the PC version you can save anywhere you wish, without limit, but the same console based boxes are littered throughout the environment. It is safe to say that PC gamers will be taking more risks than their console counterparts.

This leads me into the Dunia engine, created by Ubisoft Montreal. It looks good on the Xbox 360, but the PC version is much more scalable and with high end hardware it looks quite stunning at high resolution. If you are lucky enough to own a 260 GTX or higher then you will be able to run the game maxed out at high resolutions. The console version also suffers a little from lower frame rates and rougher edges on weapons and vehicles but I guess this is to be expected. While the graphics aren’t up to the level of Crysis, they do run at a considerably better framerate. While it has been hyped that Far Cry 2 would incorporate Nvidia’s PhsyX, it appears in my testing that with it disabled in the driver, no differences were apparent. Havok is used on a software level however so some of the cool effects are clearly originating from this. A 4870 also gave great results with the engine.

There are no problems with the audio side of the game and all the combat sound effects such as gunfire and zings across metal surfaces are first class. The ambient sound effects steal the show such as the grass noises under movement as well as the wildlife in the surround environment. The game also supports amBX which should impress the hardcore fans.

There is also support for multiplayer with Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture The Flag making up some of the key elements. Interestingly they have also included a territorial control mode as well as a progression system which lets you earn diamonds to get weapon upgrades. Ubisoft have also included a multiplayer map editor which has a rather steep learning curve but rewards those persistent enough to master it as a worthwhile side venture.

Far Cry 2 is a highly entertaining game which combines a very capable engine with a free roaming style environment much in the same vein as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. The AI has some minor quirks here and there but for the most part is very effective and fools you at times into believing that the guys you are fighting are as close to real people as possible. There is also long term playability with a single player campaign in the region of 25 to 30 hours and considerable options for multiplayer. Just don’t be expecting to jump into the shoes of Jack Carter again and you should take something positive from the experience.
