  • Abstract:  It's a delicate undertaking trying to achieve a sensible equilibrium between the pursuit of pure aesthetics and artificial intelligence. Many games get lost along the way, forfeiting one for the other. That's why Far Cry 2 is such a resounding achievement...

  • Abstract:  Far Cry 2 was not only the first game that I reviewed here on Tech Olive, but it was also my very first article on these holy pages (Fun Fact: This also marks my 1,000th post for Tech Olive). Since then, I had felt the need to go back and write a prope...

  • Abstract:  Other than its name, Far Cry 2 has surprisingly little in common with its predecessor. The setting is different, with all the action taking place in an arid, unnamed Central African state rather than the lush tropical island of the original.The main pr...
