Released on October 21st 2008, Far Cry 2 is the long awaited sequel to the popular first person shooter of the same name. With the same open world concept, Far Cry 2 abandons the plot and science fiction elements of the first game to focus more on bringing the storyline into line with the 'realistic' elements that made the original a success. Similar to games such as Fallout 3, the game will be released on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as well as PC - bringing the overall system requirements for the later down considerably. The game still remains quite demanding, however, requiring very powerful video cards as well as powerful RAM and CPUs to attain decent frame rates at higher resolutions and levels of detail.
