You play a middle aged character searching for diamonds and money, and you’re given gadgets, such as a diamond locator, to help you with your quest. Once you’ve found the diamonds you must sell them to purchase guns and ammunition.
Throughout the game you’re constantly attacked by other diamond searchers, and this element of the game relates to the real struggle in Africa. The game is similar to the classical block buster film Blood Diamond , and the plot is just as thick. The game’s creators ensure that you experience a rollercoaster of emotions, as many of those you come to think of as allies turn out to be traitors.
As well as the career mode, Far Cry 2 offers the stimulating multiplayer online mode, which is also available in games such as Call of Duty and Battlefield. The multiplayer mode allows you to put the tactics learnt in career mode to the test as you face talented players in the online world.
