Far Cry 2 Hands-on Preview

"I can't even be showing you this. You're totally out of the demo area. But the world is there."

Is it ever. Lead artist Alex Amancio is taking us off the beaten path near the end of my look at Far Cry 2. I see thatched roof huts, brightly colored graffiti sprayed across the walls.

A few convincing water buffalo stand grazing off in the distance, a shot right out of No Country. Read more »
