Your opinion

I was just wondering, if this game was any better, what do you think would have been nice to see, hear, or what have you, in Far Cry 2? 
 
Personally, I think it's a good game. 8.5 out of 10 maybe? But a lot holds me back from feeling it could have reached its full potential. A bit of ideas that would have made the game more appealing to me are:  
 
-  
Have a score reminiscent of the film Blood Diamond. Since it's in a large landscape, I felt if only they had a more cinematic touch to it, it could have brought more beauty to the atmosphere. 
 

A single character to become attatched to instead of picking through characters who I don't really care for. And spoken dialogue from him (or her) as well. 
 
-  
Civilians when going to certain villiages with set sequences to add to the story instead of just going to destination to destination; better story. 
 
Overall I just feel as if the game could have been a lot more emotional in the setting it's depicted in, and whatever I feel was needed would probably change the game in many ways. Doesn't mean better for everyone, but certainly for me it would.

I love the game. Very immersive and one of the best survival-based games I've played. IT's not everyone though, especially if you have a short attention span.

I wanted to like the game, I really did, I gave it a entire year to grab me.  I bought it around Christmas 2008 and sold it when I bought Mass Effect 2.  I tried to get into it, and I did a few times, but it just couldn't hold me.  Not sure specifically what was wrong with it, maybe that it forced you to walk everywhere or drive on the roads to stop and fight some pricks in a jeep every couple minutes... argh... it makes me mad thinking about it.  I really wish there were just a few things different about the game because I really did want to like it and there were some parts that I totally enjoyed.

Did you try to type "IT's not for everyone"? Miss a word? And I know what you're saying.

I see what you're saying. Yeah I think I feel the same way in sorts.

I tried to get into it but it just didn't grab me for long enough to play right through it.

I would have liked if the vehicles didn't break down every 5 seconds. That would have made it better

I haven't finished the game, I appreciate that's it's a good one and will get round to it one day. The multiplayer was surprisingly solid and I have returned to that on a number of occasions.
