Yeah gotta add here, and not to sound like a Pro PC jerk either, the PC version is the way to go (quick saving, better aim) if you have the rig, which most people dont sadly, i've always been more of a fan PC shooters, more immersive.

I'm really getting tired of clearing same guard stations over and over. Right now I just speed through them and hope my car can take the damage. It would be nice to get some reward for clearing them but nothing you do seems to make any difference. All that driving around for 20 some "rocks" that get you a new gun and/or few upgrades. I'm hoping, now that I moved to the next map, that things will change a little.

Fun:

  • Setting fire to a guard station and watching it destroy the station and guards is fun.
  • Setting off ammunition next to guards and seeing it take out most of them.
  • Killing guards using the machete!

Not fun:
  • Guards shooting you through bushes and walls when you can't even see them.
  • No climb action. Trying to jump to higher/better positions is difficult. Getting stuck on low crates/rocks/objects that shoud be easy to jump over during a firefight has killed me too many times.
  • Cases really should have more "rocks" in them. Some of the cases are really hard to find or get to. Why waste time for only 1-4 diamonds.

I like it so far except for the following:
- the guy can't jump for shit and he runs like a 60-year old with asthma
- the AI still can see me from anywhere as they always start shooting but when it comes to hiding they just stand about waiting for me to kill them off
- I haven't noticed any "oh my buddy is hurt i'm gonna save his ass and get a bullet through my brain while doing it" at ALL.
For the rest it's sweet though, I kinda miss African Radiostations

Oh and anyone know how I can get rid of those damn triangles everywhere, and don't say "update drivers" *urgh*

I can honestly say that i'm not a fan of this game at all. It looked great, so i rented it and it was a huge disappointment. It just isn't my cup of tea i guess, but at least Fallout 3 is coming out on tuesday!

I've been enjoying the game so far. The driving is getting really old...

Posted by Charleslegrand

Yup, good game but too much driving.

Tip for anyone playing : sniper + uzi is the way to go.  Oh, and watch out for the jeep drivers that get too close... they'll try ramming into you, I learned it the hard way trying to snipe the guy.

And anyone feels like its hard on the eyes during the night ?

Yep.  I can't come up with a single shooter outside of Halo that plays better on consoles than it does on the PC.  Mouse just gives much more control and precision over a stick.

Never a good sign when there's a need to post an article on how to have fun with a particular game.  Fun, within the context of any videogame, should be a fairly intrinsic quality readily available and easy to identify.  I practice the slide whistle for the discipline, structure, and ultimately the payoff that comes at the end of all those hours (if not minutes) of hard work and dedication.  I play videogames for the pink, meaty center.  So where's the beef Brad?

that's kinda rough. a guide on how to have fun.

Pretty good advice, you definitely can't play this game like your usual run and gun shooter.

I liked the armed jeep, but I also enjoy the buggy because it's fast and can handle bumpy terrain better. If you come under attack while driving it, you can just swerve off the road and blaze through the jungle while the enemies get stuck.

Also, I recommend nabbing the occasional diamond briefcase. Hunting them down isn't always easy, but if you don't have a pending mission and there happens to be one in the area, you should grab it. So far, the only missions that actually pay seem to be the UFLL and APR story missions, so having some extra diamonds really helps.

The map editor is mind blowing with its complexity. It's a huge upgrade from the last game and I've already seem some incredible maps online.Over all I'm really enjoying the game. The open ended nature is interesting, and the scenery is beautiful. It's not going to dethrone CoD4 as my favorite shooter, but it's still a lot of fun.

Ahh...... jumping off a cliff and landing in the water while enemies are casing you = Priceless.

Thanks for the tips!  I really want to rent this game.

Too many interesting looking games comin' out. What's a dude to do? And now for something entirely different... Last weeks bombcast, Jeff brought to my attention an article concerning the current state of videogame criticism, so I started a blog to get my fellow Giantbombers thoughts on the matter. Here's the blog with a link to the article: http://www.giantbomb.com/profile/Dryker/blog/

This tips are really good, I was getting fucked up about the game but I'm gonna try to get some better weapons and stuff to see if I can do better. Cheers

you need to make a list of your favourite october released games so we can get some help deciding what to buy

Is there some kind of jeep repellent in this game? Jeeps out of nowhere every two minutes dammit. Did they inject a GPS transmitter into your bloodstream along with the malaria? Hope they're just harassing you like this in the very beginning because it's already getting on my nerves. And where do they come from? Are they hiding in the trees?

1: Get Dart rifle
2: Get silenced pistol
3: Get Camouflage (optional)
4: Play like MGS3
5: ???

Have the graphics improved or are they relatively the same?

Posted by jjsuperspy

i like this game i have it for my 360 and i think the way the have made your guns jam is good coz it feels more real if u get what imean and also that when u pick up a gun its all warn out

The bus system is more helpful that it seems at first. 2/3s of the missions are within 1 checkpoint of a bus station, and the station in Pala will get your unscathed to the APR and UFLL mission givers, and a quick uneventful drive from mikes bar.
 
I also like the ATV and Buggy because you can often use them to go around check points, occasionally you'll find one you can't go around, thats when I have some fun trying to stealth kill everyone.
