Summary

A pretty decent game that you should take a look at least once!

The Good

First of all, I like that you can eventually mess around in the Panau by sabotaging militarian property, like fuel depots, radars, generators and silos. As the game comes down in the graphics, they look gorgeous, despite that they are not ground-breaking, since other games have better graphics. Music is also entertaining for the most part, while I could prefer orchestrated music. View distance is pretty impressive, since you can see anything from far away! Do you want to go to the Offshore Rig instead to the militarian harbor? You will decide it!

The Bad

There are some glitches littered here and there, and frame rate may also suffer sometimes, so that game is somewhat demanding, especially on complex areas. Voice acting is not the best thing that I have heard in this game, since it is pretty much Hit or Miss.

Some of the missions are particularly frustrating, since you don't encounter checkpoints too often, which can be a nuisance if you have managed to get so far in that mission and soon you realize that you have been killed and you need to start from last checkpoint or even worse, from the beginning!

The Bottom Line

This is a game that you should play it once, even if you are not fond of the Action games in the general, since you will eventually get sucked in and will force you to play this game to the end!

With tons of stuff to do, it has really high replay value, but you can always start a new game if you need new challenges.
