And unlike GTA IV the actual driving from place to place is not fun. It would be cool if you had to lose enemy jeeps chasing you. Or it would be nice if you could shoot while driving.

Another issue is that enemies should only confront you when you get to your mission. If I drive across the map I need to pass like 3 enemy checkpoints just to get to my mission.

Am I doing something wrong? Maybe if I drive a regular car instead of a jeep with a mounted gun I wouldn't get so much attention?
no no. They fire at you no matter what.
I think crainger recommended using the waterways more....Yea, but the trick is not getting past the checkpoints, you can just "snipe" the guys from far off with your mounted weapon, the problem is its so repetitive.

Well, I tried the waterways and going offroad a bit. You still get attacked and it takes longer to get to where you want to go.

I have to say that graphics are excellent. It looks stunning and I love the explosions--the way leaves fly etc.

I hate you shoot people and they get back up. I hate how a guy with a mounted machine gun can be blasting away at you from 2 feet away without hurting you much. I hate that I can't take more weapons with me.

And what does this game have to do with FarCry? It's nothing like FarCry. They just used the name.

FarCry was a far far better game even with the stupid Trigens.

I like the visuals and fire and environment but I'm mostly bored, annoyed and confused.

I actually found that if you stay off the roads you get attacked randomly a LOT less... the problem is that there is not as much off-road as you might think there is, as a lot of the map is tight pathways through canyons and such.

i was going to mention this, but i found it really, REALLY easy to deal with checkpoints. I would never lose more then 1 section of my life, and it would always regenerate.

doesn't matter, there are still checkpoints on water, and river bank fights are more annoying.

they designed the game, and just released it. Seems like no one played it before releasing it.

The game has good graphics and is very polished (It runs well on my 8800GTS 640Mgs at ultra settings on DX10) but is boring an repetitive, I started a new game and I´ll try to do all the side missions before starting the main ones

that won't help, there are maybe like 3 different side missions, just you have to do them few hundred times.

It's a great game. Metacritic says so with an 86 score.

I think I know what you mean...

They look good, but, yes... dull I guess.

Also - that guy... "the "developer" wow. I really hope that he is trolling.
