Far Cry 2 is another good get for Xbox One backward compatibility

January 16, 2018 1 min read

I'm not sure where Far Cry 2falls on your list, but for me, it's the most memorable game in the series -- despite not being my favorite to play. It's harsh pretty much across the board. It can often feel unfair. It requires patience and some relearning, especially early on while you're getting situated. But if you don't succumb to malaria and bounce right off, Far Cry 2 will leave a lasting, one-of-a-kind impression.

The divisive 2008 game, along with Sniper Elite V2and Driver: San Francisco (but only if you have it on disc or previously bought a digital copy), are playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility.

There's probably no going back to Far Cry 2's themes and not-exactly-user-friendly mechanics for Ubisoft, but I can't help wondering what a more modern take on its principles might look like.
