I'm going to take a different tack from others that have reviewed this game. I rated it high because it’s pure eye candy. I decided that I wasn't going to do missions right away so I just started exploring. I would climb a mountain look around and see an even bigger mountain. So I'd point the car or truck downhill and aim for a ridge that looked like I could catch air off of. I did this over and over; trashing cars, tumbling down mountain slopes and over cliffs to a fiery explosive death, and having to go steal a new car just to go do it again. The map is huge, the mountains are huge, and the coral and marine life is amazing quality. Yes, I took time to go swimming in the ocean, even did some cliff diving. Too bad it was shallow and I died. LOL!! I also hunted deer, coyotes, cranes, and birds that were flying too high and far away to identify. To be honest I think a person could play for months without seeing everything there is to see and if you only stick to missions you're going to miss just how brilliant this environment is. In my book, this is a buy.
