I've been playing this off and on for a week now and not once have i really been entertained. The game has no real storyline it's brain dead mission after another. granted the landscapes look great, there is just no follow through.
I've found no difference in storyline depending on what character you choose, it's simply for looks. In fact this game is all ascetic with no substance. Another mindless console style FPS for the water head mass of 360 gamers. The over all game play is very repetitive. The same six guys at the same checkpoints over and over again, it's like grinding a boring MMORPG. The side missions are no different from the main plot, as if there was one. The company boast "50 square kilometers of visually stunning African landscape." Which is true, too bad the landscapes are empty unless you're on a mission then it spawns the same 6 guys you killed 500 times before at the check point down the road that looks just like the check point you just drove by.
Speaking of driving, that's about 90% of the game, you can hop in one of 3 trucks and drive down the same dirt road that leads you to another checkpoint that looks just like the last checkpoint full of the same 6 guys you killed before and if you are lucky you might not have to drive 10 minutes to get to a mission that involves, you guessed it. Killing the same 6 guys and returning back to Pala via a 10 minute drive.
Farcry was a lot better game, it had a decent story and over all was a lot more fun than this, the bottom line is Farcry 2 SUCKS!
I would like to take this time and thank Razor1911 for this release, it saved a lot of us $49.99 worth of disappointment.
