Oblivion was better then this ****, Oblivion had pathetic main story, but side missions where a bit more diverse then farcry2.

bought the game for 40, sold it for 10.

One lesson learn, try and not to buy games based on reviews, wait a bit longer.

I'm glad to see my method for evaluating games works. Saved myself 40e...

Strangely, I actually finished this game where as I never finished the main quest in Oblivion.

just came back to this yesterday and i sat down and got from about 25% to 50%, wow. the ending of the first map where you assassinate both leaders, have to choose who to save, get stuck in a sandstorm, etc. then get to the 2nd map and protect that boat then have to escape as the ceasefire dissolves; really switched things up. I had some hours of fun last night.

When i was sent to assassinate gakumba it has pretty intense, first took out enough guards to sneak in his house with silenced pistol, then did the same to him. Next when i got ambushed by like 1000 guards i lit his house on fire as a distraction the lept down about a mile into the river below and took off on a boat. pretty crazy

moments like these are what propel the game imo

I don't know why people give this game such a hard time... I agree it can be the same old over and over again at points. But some main missions are a blast... and once you can afford the good weapons it becomes alot of fun and allows you to try different things

those are the best parts BY FAR. The ending is also nice. I say about 15% of the game is actually enjoyable

WTF... I'm stuck at 73%. When I go to the APR base in the southern map I can go inside, but the guys who hand out the missions are not there, and their door is closed. I tried waiting until a different time of day but it didn't help. I have completed all other missions possible on both maps. Anyone know WTF is up? Am I missing something here?!?!

sometimes the doorman to the base gives you a mission.
