Ranking the Far Cry Games from Best to Worst

10. Far Cry 2

Following the success of the first game, a sequel to the original Far Cry followed in 2008. Set in war-torn Africa, you take on missions and attempt to take down an arms dealer known as “the Jackal”. But while Far Cry 1 stunned people with its cutting-edge graphics and offered sheer, unadulterated fun for the price, Far Cry 2 fell flat in so many ways.

Enemies would endlessly respawn at checkpoints, meaning getting from point A to B on the map would be a major chore. Also, having to get hold of malaria pills in order to avoid falling prey to the disease was a source of frustration. Plus, weapons could jam during firefights too… Of course, some will appreciate the game’s realism and survival gameplay, and Far Cry 2 was well received at the time of release. Ubisoft had not yet mastered the art of making open-world games though, making this difficult to recommend considering how good its sequel Far Cry 3 was.
