Far Cry 2 previewed

Posted on Wednesday, June 04 2008 @ 04:41:22 CEST by

Now admittedly we were a little disappointed that our plan to incinerate the ramshackle huts had failed so early on and that we had had to fall back and rely on Warren’s help, but the process actually helped to prove how great Far Cry 2 is when it comes to providing an emergent experience and an arena for players to experiment in and create their own stories.

This, if anything, would seem to be Far Cry 2's speciality – it just refuses to be consistent in any aspect of the game design. There are a few hard and fast rules which make the game world consistent with how we think the world should be – wind that blows, fire that spreads, wood that splinters – but that’s about it. The rest of the game is different every time you play it because the details are always changing.

Put simply, when it’s the case that the direction that the wind is blowing in can change your entire approach to a mission then you know you’re in for a hugely open and vastly replayable gaming experience.

Far Cry 2 may yet have problems we haven’t uncovered and granted that a single mission is no basis on which to judge an entire unreleased game – but if we were so foolish as to do judge in that way then Far Cry 2 is one game that we’d definitely get very excited about. Read more at Bit Tech.
