NVIDIA Far Cry 2 Beta Drivers

NVIDIA now offers another set of beta ForceWare drivers, which are now up to version 180.43, enabling NVIDIA SLI on Intel X58-based motherboards and offering further improvements in Far Cry 2 performance as described in the accompanying quote from Ubisoft's Louis-Pierre Pharand: "Since we first began working on Far Cry 2 in early 2005, we have used GeForce GPU’s to develop the game and worked closely with NVIDIA’s excellent engineers. While Far Cry 2 represents an outstanding PC gaming experience for a wide range of systems, GeForce users can expect to enjoy the game quite literally 'The Way It Was Meant To Be Played'." There are new beta version 180.43 driver for Windows XP 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows XP 64-bit, and Windows Vista 64 bit. Thanks Tr0n.

sc4r4b, THANK YOU SO MUCH the multiplayer mini-review. This is a definite no-buy for me.

Surf, I'm with you. I've seen the single player played for several hours and agree with you 100%. This is no PC shooter. There's a lot of potential but the game fails for me also. I liked it for the first few hours. The fire is cool, the scenery is okay. The brown colors wore on me after a while. The game isn't very open once you realize that when you clear an area, they all respawn if you aren't doing the objectives (quests).

I don't like how if you snipe at a vehicle and miss, they immediately know exactly where you are and come fast to run you over. I also don't like how the weapons degrade so quickly. That's just not fun. The narrow FOV is lame and screams consoleitis. Maybe a mod will make the game fun.

I guess company politics inside UBI ruined the game. I don't know for sure. The game doesn't sell why you want to kill everyone you see. It doesn't explain why the bad guys shoot at you for seemingly no reason. The intro scene is cool because they DON'T shoot at you.

I would have made the game where you fight on one side and join battles but your overall mission is still to kill the weapons dealer.
