SummaryIt took two patches to transform this bug heap into a great game
The GoodBoiling Point features a huge, free world to explore at your own leisure, one which is very detailed, extremely stylized (South America!) and often quite dangerous. The weapons in the game are all upgradable, and there are a lot of them to choose from. The vehicles are fun to play around with and it's great that you're allowed to drive, fly and even learn to control a boat. The best part of the game is the dialogue and characters though. Some of the conversations are simply hilarious and most of them feature really good spoken dialogue. Boiling Point is one of the best sandbox games I've played in a long while, comparable to an odd mix of Deus Ex and Morrowind.
The BadWhen released, the game was so buggy it was nearly unplayable. The game stuttered horribly in towns, it corrupted save files with a scary frequency, the game kept crashing in the most inopportune moments and the physics were laughable. They fixed all that with the second patch though (200 MB!), and after the patch the game is absolutely great, apart from some of the quest givers feeling unfinished (Boatswain) and some minor script bugs (stuff not appearing correctly when it's supposed to etc).
