Good

Great Game, Flaws are uncommon...

The only things i found wrong with the game was the methods of traveling are too flawed, the paracute and hookshot are the quickest methods of traveling, but they dont work in water so you need a slow helicopter or a jet, or a even slower boat, the airplane controls suck, helicopter is good though, the combat heli vs heli is fun...

the second issue is the amount of content, theres simply too much, you lose interest before you get 50% completion so many missions im actually at 26% and i beat the game still havent discovered half the map, havent done half the missions, destroyed half the things, the main issue infact with the traveling thing has to do with how big the map is, it would literally take maybe an hour to walk swim walk swim walk swim across the entire map, the only method of fast traveling is infact too complex....

but all in all this game is worth renting for a day or two, its fairly challenging, a little like grand theft auto.

This game is not revolutionary in any way, but it's fun! Your basically a gun for hire. You got some cool gadgets at your disposal and a slew of weapons to choose from. It's a go anywhere do anything kind of game and there are some amazing set pieces. Lots to do and find for all those people who must get 100% completion on every game they play. The graphics are good enough and the soundtrack and sound effects come through crisp and clear. The only real gripes I have with this game is that after a few hours you get kind of bored with the tasks at hand, but with all the options you have to accomplish them, this may be trivial to most people. The controls are a bit loose and some of the weapons have a little to much recoil, but again these are trivial.

Awesome game with a few glaring flaws

This game is a lot of fun. Big, play area. Many hours of game play and exploration. Kind of a Mercenaries 2 ripoff, but a lot more fun, I think.

As for the flaws, well, there arent many, but the few that it has, are really annoying. First of all, the game save system just plain sucks, and is totally worthless. You play for a while and save your game. Then you get killed, and when you reload your game, you are nowhere near where you died. You start off back at some previous location and have to work your way back to where you were. Totally frustrating, and there is just no excuse for it. If you are going to allow someone to save the game at a specific point, then start it back right at that point when a load is done. No reason for it. One of the most frustrating things about this whole game, and it takes it from a solid number 9 game, to a number 7 game, in my opinion.

Another thing that happens quite a bit, is that you leave a vehicle someplace, then when you return for it, it's gone. That sucks as well, because those attack choppers are not that easy to come by.

Finally, buying things from the black market is annoying. You have to call them in. Then you have to sit through the same short clip every time. Then, when you buy one thing, the whole buying sequence ends, and you have to do it all over again if you want to buy something else. Totally bogus. Another thing about buying things, is that the prices just dont seem to be right. It costs you $45k for a sniper rifle, and $25k for a pistol, but you can buy a personal jet or helicopter for $30k. The prices of the weaponry just seem way too out of line for the rest of the items. Oh, and one final note about the weaponry. Most of them are pretty cool for standard military stuff, but there are no really neat weapons or gadgets. This game really needs a jet pack, and a couple of energy weapons to spice things up a bit!

Other than those few flaws, a really cool game. You can blow up a lot of things, and go anywhere.
