tinman   Review #3378 - Dated: 8th of November, 2009
  Author: tinman

A well developed game, great immersion in the world, and some brilliant characters to go with it.

Pros
- Massive world to explore
- Fairly open gameplay with side quests and cases of diamonds to find
- Vehicles to drive (cars, jeeps, trucks, boats)
- Great effects that help with immersion (screen blur after sprinting too long)
- Variety of weapons to choose from

Cons
- As with games like Freelancer, the traveling to your next waypoint can get quite irritating at times. That said, there are bus routes to various points around the world, even still you will quite often need to spend a good 5-10 minutes driving, or more walking
- Guardposts respawn pretty fast so youll be fighting the same dudes many times

This game was good fun with an interesting storyline to boot. Forcing enemies out of hiding by setting fields on fire is my personal favourite thing that came out of this along with stunning graphics and scenery.
There is a fairly high requirement when it comes to performance, but the game runs fine on high for me using a 3-4 year old computer (nVidia geforce 8600, 2 gb ram)
