Horrible

Watch out for attacks from the over-hype machine..

This game is protected by corperate lap dogs of ubisoft who only attack the critics of this game, and as a result they have lost points with me regarding their game for the use of such bully tactics. Now for the review...
The game is over rated. Where it does good is in the fact that they introduce you top the most amazingly crazy mad man in the person of vaas, and they also give you good graphics. That's it! This game goes down hill after that.. Problems?
1. quick time events are stupid and they ruined this game! This isn't God of War people, and it shouldn't be!
2. Stealth is a irregular mechanic even in the logic of this games own universe. For example, In most cases, and outposts if you have a silenced siper rifle you can clear a stronghold almost effortllessly, but if you are using close quarter approaches you literally have to abuse the AI to death with rocks just to get anywhere, but forget aceing it unless you have boat loads of luck and skill.. This first outpost is the worst of the bunch. If an unimportant npc militia member dies during the first outpost you, then fail the mission. That only happens when the first signs of fighting begin. On all other outposts, the blue shirts won't even show until after all the red shirst are dead and the outpost is captured. You can tear through the first outpost easily in a few minutesf you go running in with guns blazing. FORGET STEALTH IF YOU ARE MELEEING the game, you might get a few stealth kills, but not much. Sound odd right? There are reasons for it.
3. Ai ranges from suicidally stupid to nearly psychic.
They can see through some solid objects in some cases, but not others. The game actually forces a stealth segment on the players which defeats the whole Open world, do what you want, the way you want to do it!
Between the QTE, and the wonky stealth makes me wonder why it ranks so high. The anwser? Many reviewers are bought, and paid for by the company to give good reviews. Try before you buy!

Spoiler Alert: The Gameplay = Facepalm. There’s a part in the game where you have to fight a giant demon wearing a mask. Also there’s a part where one villain is attacking you with a knife, in your head, and there’s like fifty of him, he never stops coming. That makes me sound lazy for describing it that way, but that’s the only way. Then you stab this villain and when you wake up, you’re told that you killed him…. Yeah, even though that was clearly a dream, you killed him. He’s dead, he’s not coming back. No more of his weird nonsensical focking speeches, he died in a dream you had, and now I’m off to face the main, main villain of the game.

When it’s 2012 & you’re still releasing a game that has protect the dumb A.I. missions in it. When I’m a bad azz, taking down an entire fleet of armed enemies with a bow & arrow, grenades, molotovs, machete & I only earn 300 experience points; then I go to another island, play a game of texas hold-em and earn 3,000 exp points. When the game tells you to land a hang glider on a long stretch of ground, in a game filled with hills, rocks, & trees, the only way I ever safely landed one was in deep water. When I unlock a really cool looking gun I might actually want to shoot around, but it costs more than I can keep in my wallet but I can’t craft a bigger wallet because I can’t kill a Sha

grafic and sound are great but thats where the magic ends.
problem #1 in order to play in peace and not have to go back to the fast travel to unload junk or refill ammo you must hunt for different skins sure it makes the game longer but it kills the fun. especially in the begining!

problem #2 the gun accuracy is horrible unless you got a sniper rifle or you are close enought to hug the bad guy you wont get a head shot

problem #3 preditory animals which are tanks shoot them in the head with a sniper rifle see the blood spray and you just made it mad. Having to shoot 1 animal with every thing you got is silly. I could see a clip if you hit it with a clip and its still not dead come on. and my personal favorite tigers pop up at the perfect time all the time. I cleaned out the logging camp i was getting loot and surprise another tiger at a camp WTH so i die and lose all progress. Im so happy this tiger showed up at 5 other camps.

Pros good grafics and sound and the story is very good
