As expected, Far Cry 2 turned out to be one of 2008's finest shooters; the new freedom-oriented gameplay resonated with plenty of next-gen gamers. However, despite the extra longevity due to this new style, plenty of people still have the time to jump online for some multiplayer action.

Well, those avid fans are in desperate need of a patch to make the experience a little more realistic and enjoyable. If you're not familiar, it seems that it takes far too much firepower to bring down an opponent, and many players have been complaining about this major drawback for quite some time. And therefore, according to a recent post over at the game's community blog, these concerns will soon be addressed thanks to an upcoming patch. It will add new balance to the weapons in all multiplayer modes, but they'll also toss in a brand new "Hardcore" setting as well, which will jack up the damage for all weapons and generate more deaths in less time. At first, we weren't sure if this update would be coming to all platforms, but now it appears that it will indeed arrive for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions of this popular title. It's one of those games that may have gotten a little lost in the shuffle during last year's crazy October/November release-fest, but it still managed to sell quite well and garnered plenty of well-deserved critical acclaim.

These days, with the ability to make any current online experience better, why not take the opportunity? With something like Far Cry 2 , you may as well bend to the fan's wishes and simply make 'em happy; be good to those who appreciate what you do, and you will be rewarded. Right?

Sounds like a great patch for a pretty decent game. Kinda wish I still had my copy so I could try this out. The "too many shots to kill" thing was definitely a stickler.

Far Cry 2 was okay, I just didn't like the fact I had to stop every minute or so to eliminate yet another checkpoint, especially at the beginning of the game.

all the fun I had was online, but I'm sure glad I rented it…

Had to pass, FPS is fun but when all is said and done R2 and KZ2 should be enough for awhile.

Couldn't agree more. The new lower price on this game makes it tempting, but there's too much already.

Very true, after KZ2 I think it will be really hard to stomach FC2. But give it a go sometime next June after you've destroyed KZ2 and you can get it for 10 bucks ūüėČ

Sure a good thing that patch, I´ll give it a try – playing Socom so far, because Far Cry´s multi was to boring to me.

As I was reading it I was thinking to myself, "Man this doesn't feel like Ben's writing." Lo and behold I get to the bottom and it says John Shepard. The unknown entity.
