It means not even close.

This African setting is a far cry from anything we've ever seen before.

This one is called Far Cry because the previous ones were called Far Cry. Why the first one was called Far Cry I don't know. Perhaps because being on an island was a far cry from civilization.

I have no clue why the call it far cry but base on the first game story, Krieger's call the mutation on the island "Project Far Cry".

I'm guessing its farcry becuase its in an open sandbox that is rarely seen in games and helps show the scale of the game saying it saying ia a far..cry across the island and away from civilazation. Also the developer crytek uses "cry" which they used in crysis "Cry" were far fitted into "Cry".

That's right...according to google.
I wondered the same thing and googled definition: far cry. Basically it means it's a long distance. eg.
It's a far cry from here to the UK.

I think its called Far Cry 2 because the Jackal Ends up being Jack Carver!

You guys are all missing the obvious. The game was made by Crytek...

It's oblviously called far cry because:
Fun is in the game
Awsomeness is in the game
Reality is in the game
Creativity is in the game
Resting, and reload jamming is in the game
Yogurt is not in the game. (thank god)

open world far distance rendering, exploration galore.. hence far cry (doesnt have to relate to previous story/character) it's the theme of the game with a catchy name.

probably the same way software is named..

FC pc is 1.0
FC instints and predator and the wii version are kinda like 1.1 1.2 or 1.3 or w/e

and the next big step is part 2
