Many steps forward, but a few steps back

+ This is a very solid game, no doubt and does many things well and you never feel like you have nothing to you. It is content packed and the freedom to play how you want is second to none. Not only will you be spending a lot of hours playing this game the first time but you will find yourself replaying the game simply to change your playstyle.

The world feels alive, has some awesome characters and the gameplay is very well done, from shooting, crafting, vehicles and hunting.


I was a big fan of FC2 so the exclusion of weapon degradation is missing ( I felt that made the game dynamic and is missing, nothing like having your weapon explode resulting in you having to pick up the nearest low quality AK and use that). Also things like money is something you wont have problems with and you may find yourself with the best gear within 4 or 5 hours of play, which does in a sense make the game feel a little unbalanced. Some key battles are mishandled and the story in its self isn't that great.

The AI and general combat doesn't feel as hard or intense as is got in FC2 either, especially since being sneaky is a lot easier now ( this could be a plus). While the location looks great, I feel it got a bit too repetitive early on.

At the end of the day, it was a very good experience and would defiantly recommend it to anyway but if you are one of the few who loved FC2, expect a little disappointment.
