There are quite a few bugs in the game, like once I've seen a soldier rising to the hight of the tower and then falling on the ground (wasnt sure what happened to him, couse I was looking in a scope from a distance).

The thing that I got dissapointed most however is the physics. I guess I expected too much, but imho - its quite far from what Crysis delievers. You can shoot with bazooka (which btw shoots really weird sometimes) into a small village from the hill and... nothing happens. Same with granades/fire - things just dont want to distruct or burn sometimes. (damn it )

Hey, I can even live with a quite boring gameplay/story.

Pretty much the only thing I dislike about this game is the malaria thing... a mod to remove that would be nice, but probably not going to happen.

The rest of the game is aces... I agree with the PC Gamer score, mostly.

Its on top of a huge 15+ foot tall boulder.

I was hoping for a big bonus like 10 diamonds or something, but it only had 3.
I used a truck. Drove it round the back of the boulder. Jumped on the back of it, onto the roof, then onto the boulder.

I think it's the worst game I have finished these past years. A hard work for finished this game , consolizated , boring , ultra repetitive , patetic history , retarder AI .. .

Yeah, before I found the hang glider (its on the mountain to the north east of that location) I was planning on using a truck to get up there.

It fixes single player and multiplayer stuff. You probably don't NEED it but wouldn't be a bad idea to install it. Mine did an auto download when I launched the game.

same, i am so vicious with the guys. + i never fight a car with hand held weapons, always use either staionary or mobile machine guns I got a perfect convoy destruction too once, i launched the nade right between the first jeep and the big truck that was right behind him, all 3 cars in the convoy went sky high

Mini spoiler i guess

later on when u get the vehicle mounted 'nade launcher, i just hammer the base from far off...they dont even have half a chance

Alright guys, I need some HELP. I'm still stuck with no way to buy medicine on the second map. The suggestion posted last time didn't help.

Initially I talked to the Doc in the town, but he had no medicine and told me to come back later at which point he would help me out. Then fighting broke out in the city so he told me to escape. After escaping the city I immediatly got an urgent call from the guy on the Barge who needed help. I went near the bottom of the map to save him, and then the mission was over, leaving it open to pick a new mission.

That's where I am at now, open for a new mission, but when I return to the underground house the doctor is nowhere to be found. The fighting within the cease fire zone is now over, yet the doctor has not returned. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

It will really suck if I have to sh*t can my 30 hours of play and start over again, and I already tried loading a saved game prior to first contact with the doctor, as the last suggestion said the doctor would send me to a guy that would help, though that didn't happen.

WTH should I do?

So how or when do you run out of pills? I was on my first bottle for a really long time and I never ran out.
