Discover one of the most beautiful but also most hostile environments in the world, Africa. You are sent to this war-torn region to assassinate the Jackal, a mysterious arms dealer who has rekindled conflict between local warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives.

In order to fulfill your mission you will have to become a gun for hire, trapped in a war-torn African state stricken with malaria, and forced to make deals with corrupt warlords on both sides of the conflict in order to make this country your home.

Play the warring factions against each other, identify and exploit their weaknesses, and neutralize their superior numbers with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.

After neglecting this page for quite sometime I've decided to clean everything up a bit. The biggest change is that I've moved GES to a newer version of SweetFX. This should allow it to be used on all versions of FC2. (Including the Steam Fortune Edition!) I've removed a bunch of old comments regarding technical issues as they should be fixed. Just make sure you have your game running on DirectX 9.

A common complaint about GES in the past is that the game is too dark with the mod installed. This is due to the nature of FC2 and the method I've used to create this mod. The default brightness, contrast, and gamma settings can look a bit wonky even on properly calibrated monitors. I suggest tweaking these values in-game until you achieve your desired result. Personally I only need to bump gamma up a bit and then everything looks fantastic. However, everybody's results will differ. Just experiment!

I've also re-cut the original trailer which you can view below.

I hope you enjoy the mod and your time spent in colorful Africa!

Where was the connection to the first one? They SAY it is a sequel, but it doesn't even pick up from where the Far Cry 1 left off. I don't understand...

Rumor has it Jack Carver has lots of similarities with The Jackal.

The only problem with Far Cry 2 is it's name - people expect(ed) it to be a sequel to Far Cry 1. It isn't. Not by a long shot. I don't even know why Ubisoft bought the IP, they could have made the exact same game with a different title, and then everyone would have been happy. Far Cry fans would have gotten a sequel from Crytek, and Far Cry 2 would have had a different name while still being the awesome game that it is. I, myself, hope Far Cry 3 is more similar the FC2 than FC1.

I wouldn't say the only problem was the name. I thought it was a great game with possibly the best gun play of any game ever but always having to fight people on the way to every mission and enemies respawning at outposts was annoying a better fast travel option would have helped.
I do like the idea that Crytek would have made Far Cry 2 and Ubisoft would have called this Zebra Hunter or something. I also agree that Far Cry 3 should be like Far Cry 2 which I think it most certainly will be I just hope Ubisoft doesn't put any DRM on it...except Valve's.
Also that made me thnk of something does Desura have DRM like Steam? It doesn't seem to but maybe I'm wrong.

"Realism" in this game is pretty good but gameplay is not.

I just realized someone could make an awesome STALKER mod from this. Imagine Africa became The Zone, infested with mutants, Anomaly activity and heavy radiation ?

Ah, but you can't really mod Far Cry 2... only map with it using existing materials and objects. And even that is (more or less) limited to multiplayer games.

Brilliant game from a very good game developer company. If you love open world games, especially FPS games, then this would be something that you will love. This game throws you into a hostile environment and basically anything can kill you; from malaria to hang-glider crashes. You will have to survive by relying on the only few weapons you have that can be by times, not really reliable after all, and as well as your buddies that can bust you out of a firefight when needed. This game is in my opinion…
