He might have laid down IEDs, or used the physics engine to move some barrels around.

Surely he could have just used the editor to make a fort (or used the fort map) with a ****load of explosive barrels? There was way too many in that for it to be in the main game.

I played through on medium. Difficulty seems pretty ok imo, its just like any ordinary FPS game and is enough of a challenge if you're a frequent FPS gamer. If you thought medium was irritating, then hard is good enough to drive you insane.

I just encountered the Dogon Sediko bug where the door to free the buddy can't be opened which pretty much stops the game from being completed (a very widespread bug). I've tried to give this game a shot but I'm about done with it. A good looking game but just too many things about it I don't like (way more than I do like). Too many good games out there to play that makes me not want to mess with this one anymore.

I bumped it up to hardcore. Normal is too easy IMO. A jeep with MG can riddle you with bullets and you'll be fine. When you're not afraid of being shot at it stops being fun. It's not a tactical fps but bumping up the difficulty makes it feel more like one.

I got the mp5 and dart rifle. They make the game a lot more fun. Stealth is actually pretty good in this game. Only wish the machete was a one hit kill as it should be.

My initial impressions of this game were very bad. I almost shelved it. Glad I kept playing.

I finished it last night, my final most common build was the most high end assault rifle (the one with camo and scope), a silenced pistol, and a dart rifle. It was a lot of fun, but the ending was a little dry, I expected there to be some kind of epic battle or something, but nothing really happened.

I had a great time with the game today.

First, I snuck into an installation crawling with guards set a bomb and the snuck out to detonate. It felt good.

Then I ambushed a motorcade with my IED. I accidentally discovered you can place MULTIPLE IED's and detonate them all at the same time. So, I set 4 IED's in a row and waited for the cars to show up. HUGE explosion and bodies everywhere.

Awesome gaming moment.

i was chasing a weapons truck, but it pulled away from me and sped away over the hill. I had a grenade-launcher truck, and just randomly sprayed rounds over the top of the hill. About 10 seconds later i got a notification that the mission is complete lol

I've gone from hating this game to loving it. The key to this game is that story and missions are not what it's all about. It's all about the fun of scoping outposts and installations and then taking them out anyway you like. It's all about the fun of creative killing

The benchmark tool is pretty good, it gives you some nice little fps graphs at the end.
