The Bad:

I expected better,much better for a so called next gen game,sadly this is the sort of thing id expect to see & experience when playing socom games on a PS2 in offline mode,i dont know what it is about the halo games or bad company but this game could do with it & the AI could do with a good dose of whatever intelligence engine the developers of sniper elite used.

The Good:

The story not what i expected its a refreshing change & that malaria cracks me up.

Large maps as youd expect.

The palm map thingy is a nice touch as is the cell phone & flame thrower,just remember to move when you set things a

As before youve got vehicles,always better to drive than walk imo,screw the gas house emissions


I tend to never throw anything out & since i still play the other two farcrys on a regular basis along with the halo & sniper elite games,i guess this will get added to the mix,i just wish it was a little more advanced like the halos are in i assume the engine those games use,in NZ this game is $100. ($50. USA),no i wouldnt pay that for it,$30 tops NZ so ill be waiting for it to drop in price,all in all they better pull their finger out for the next one

If you have some time, and want a good gaming experience, I can sincerely recommend this game.

Vast environments, *massively* improved loading time if you Install it to your Xbox 360 Hard Drive, everything that you can shoot you can basically kill. The story isnt as indepth as I wouldve liked but the time youll sink into gameplay is well worth it. If you play the game without having found the Bus Stations, well youll probably have already started to hate it, the Bus Stations are the quickest and easiest way around the map, and helps immensely.

The a let down. In my opinion I expected a Co-Op system, or perhaps some larger maps with more players in the Multiplayer, at times it also seems unbalanced, perhaps its the way the Skill system is set up, but the first time you play you -will- get owned.

So for the price of 40-60USD Its sort of worth the money, if your a gamer who is looking for massive sweeping environments, with a solid gameplay mechanic and great story, buy it.
