I really enjoyed this game. It is addicting. The driving, the guns sounds, the distance sounds, animal sounds, breathing, dripping after getting out the water, even changing gears sound real. The story had depth and you could see jason change. Unlike the previous game there is more of a focus on stealth and being able to hide from your enemies and confuse them. I really enjoyed the kill moves they were messy bloody and contained awesome sequences.
However, some of the stealth mechanics were a little messy. Like If I make a long range shot with a loud weapon they knew exactly where i was. now, you could argue that realistic, but not neccessarily. But after moving to a new place they quickly loose sight of me. I really enjoy the chance to have them not recognize me or react and you can kill them quickly. Guard movement patterns were not predicatable and sneaking up on them were difficult when often times they would check behind them randomly.
I thought the game focused a little to much on stealth. After a while its a little boring. A direct encounter with an enemy base is dangerous and you lose points. Very realistic, but not as fun.
Vaas was an awesome bad guy. He was just pure insanity and was calculating and while Jason was risking everythign for vengance. There was a lot of puns and the charecters often did funny things.
I couldn't stand how the animals were. They were extremely tuff to kill. Often missions wanted you to kill them with a bow. Which is like the most inaccurate weapon. And you could shoot 20 arrows into one animal and it was still going. don't animals bleed out? And you can pump 10 shootgun rounds into the bear and theyll still charge. Killing the commander mission they always require a takedown kill and often time it was difficult to get them to line up for one.
Lastly I wish there was more guns and equipment. I wish there was more rewards for liberating bases etc.
Every now and then a video game comes out that really blows minds... and I don't mean just some minds.. I mean all minds. Those who like Skyrim, Those who like Call of Duty, Those who like Battlefield, Those who like Pong - ALL minds get blown on far cry's adventure.
I would love to type more, but honestly I just don't have the time to because I'm to busy killing sharks, planning out strategic attacks on camps, and being so involved in the story line that I can't even hear my girlfriend texting me (THUMBS UP!!!!!)
