The fact that every time someone spots you they shoot and then get in a jeep it's like almost impossible to complete anything, this game is horrid.

Maybe you are just really bad at shooting. ;-)

This is my favourite Xbox 360 game, and I haven't even played the single player yet. I guess I'm just a custom content freak...

So the multi-player is pretty good?...I have only played SP so far.

Hey hey. Don't bash because of age. Only bash maturity levels. ;-)

#18 Edited by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

I know what you're talking about and I just find it annoying. Have you tried shooting the guys in the jeep?

#19 Posted by shadows_kill (3165 posts) -

try new tatics. maybe you shouldnt be run and guning. try sniping or try getting your own car and use that turrent gun. try attacking at night and get the hang of the game.

it is pretty easy with turrets
#21 Edited by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

Oh and I forgot. For some reason the Flare Pistol one shots all the people within the jeep when you shoot the jeep with it.

The sad part is the TC is completely right. You are just constantly being shot at from every angle at all times. I played the game for 10 minutes and immediately wanted to snap the disc in half.

EDIT: Though I should specify that, I'm not gonna say the game is "horrid" just yet.

If you rush into a base full of people without planning anything out or scouting it beforehand, you're going to get fucked. It's not that type of game. If you don't know where you're getting shot from and it's coming from seemingly nowhere, you're probably doing it wrong. Caution is your friend.

It definately has some balance issues. It is way too hard. Far Cry 1 was a fun challenge. I'm playing Far Cry 2 on easy and it's too hard for me. I mean, I play most games on normal or hard. = /

Not even going through bases, just driving on the road. The objectives are so spread out that you have to battle through an army of enemies until you can finally reach where you need to go. That being said, those 10 minutes is the only time I have spent with the game so I'll try not to just say "this game sucks" right away.

If you think that the first couple objectives are spread out (you're still in the tutorial even) in the first hour, you probably won't enjoy it once it opens up a lot more. I didn't really experience that many random encounters (and still haven't) besides ones that I went and looked for yet though; what difficulty are you on?

The default multiplayer maps are meh, the editors potential is mindblowing, it gives you so many objects and such a high limit. This plus the apparently great singleplayer means that I would whole-heartidly reccomend this to you. I would rate Far Cry 2 9.0 on map editor + multiplayer alone.... so far.

Mac 10 + Dragunov = instant destruction

#35 Posted by lvl10Wizard (326 posts) -

I've been really enjoying the game so far, I'm done with the tutorial and into my first mission and the setting and game play are fantastic. As far as the difficulty goes, i'm playing on normal and I've died once so far and I have played very carefully. I like to sneak into camps at night and machete dudes in the back of the head. Awesome.

With the game, I feel like I need to wait for other people to finish it and find out what can go wrong.

For example, I've heard that you can miss side-quests by going further into the story mode. So I haven't done anything but side quests!

Stuff like that. I really don't like it when a game prevents you from going back to finish things to completion. I want to do things right the first time.

#38 Posted by Grim_Fandango (258 posts) -

I love the game, but yes, when they see you and shoot ya in the jeep, it does grow to be a bit tedious and frustrating, but all in all, it is a great experience!

I tried to do a gun merchant mission this morning that required me to drive halfway across Africa to find a convoy. Jeeps were on my ass just about every couple of minutes. It's not even a matter of the game being difficult because of it, it's just incredibly tedious.

Time for the modders to get to work, it seems. :D

I haven't played it, but I imagine it is pretty bad.

Again with talking about things you don't know anything about. Is this a normal activity for you?

Well it depends how far you are.  If you are still using the G3 that you get at the very start then yes it cant be very easy as the accuracy sucks.  Buy some better weapons/upgrades and it gets easier.   If you're still having trouble then I suggest getting a Leap Frog Learning system. 

Nah I'm just kidding lol

Use the bus system.  I found it to be a great help. Get in the general region and wait for the truck to come by, the truck carrying the ammo drives around on the same circuit until you kill it so you dont even have to chase it, just wait the couple minutes for it to come by.

My experience of the game was extreme tedium for the first few hours, but now that I've progressed a bit farther in the campaign its gotten more enjoyable.
#44 Posted by pause422 (6187 posts) -

Obviously you're just bad at it...getting annoyed at that turning into saying its a terrible game doesn't make any sense. Also the fact that you use something such as "lawl u mad", after showing a fail site and thinking its somehow clever or something...really shows how dumb you are, and your maturity level.

#45 Edited by SolemnOaf (535 posts) -

Moving around the world can be time consuming, and the way the world is sectioned off by mountains and rivers diminishes the open-world sensation the game creates, as a lot of the time you're forced to go down the roads or rivers to get to the main city hub.  Get camo and a couple silenced weapons and difficult conflicts become decidedly less so. 

I'm really enjoying the game, but it does get tedious on occasion when it feels like I've got to fight a constant war just to get anywhere.  The distance you can travel away from a roadblock and have all the enemies respawn is rediculous, though.  Sometimes it seems like enemies are respawning around me when I'm still searching the camp. 

#46 Posted by Milkman (16791 posts) -

Just to specify to everyone, I don't even have the game. I just played it at a friend's house for a bit. What I said was just some observations I made for the short time I played it.

#47 Posted by vhold (407 posts) -

I wouldn't mind the checkpoint encounters, if they hadn't always made a mission's objective be on the other side of the map.  It's just a huge nuisance and it drags the game on unnecessarily and makes it feel very repetitive constantly driving most of the time, and when you do fight, it's usually the same basic situation.  If you could teleport to your safehouses, while not in combat, I think it would hugely improve this game.
