Bad

missions ruined all the sandbox fun

i loved the sandbox stuff with running around finding stuff and clearing out outposts.... but the story was really dumb... the main characters were all completely unlikable. couldn't get into any aspects of the story. and the missions forced me out of any of the gameplay stuffs i enjoyed.

Excellent

FAR Better than HALO

PROS:

Excellent graphics.
Excellent large open world to explore and choose your targets and your fights.
Good weapons. Some not as powerful as they should be, but good in general.
Extremely good AI, including that of wild animals. Very, very good.
Great gameplay, and great replay value thanks to all of the above.

CONS:

Maps are mediocre, with few and confusing icons, awkward navigation.
Saving is useless. No matter where or when you save, if you die you go to the start of the mission or exploration trek.
Inventory. Of all the weapons you "own", you can carry only 4 with you, and you can only equip 2 of those for quick access via Y button.

Ridiculous mirror-like "art work".
Horrible choice of lettering. HORRIBLE.
Absurdly complicated access to skills, upgrades, and other options.

And the ugly surprise (???): the Sun comes out from the SW, not from the East...

Predictable Sandbox Shooter

Graphics are good, but the game play is extremely repetitive. The missions in these sandbox type games always get old quick. The game had my attention span for probably two hours. After that it is much of the same. If you like the standard sandbox repetitive quest type games this is for you. If not then you will probably be board after about 2-3 hours. The game play is not up to par with other games either. The shooting feels like Fallout minus the VATS system. Not very crisp.
