    Why Far Cry 3 is the most overrated FPS ever.. (devs read so you don't mess up again)

    -- WARNING SHARKS AHEAD!! THIS WILL BE A LONG READ, AND YOU MAY NOT LIKE WHAT COMES NEXT!! LOOK AWAY IF YOU'RE A COD PLAYER LOL!!!! --

    I should at least be able to hopefully 'assure' you of an entertaining read...

    Far Cry 3 overall was terrible..

    Not only was everything so ridiculously repetitive... from liberating outposts, to freeing radio towers, to Raykat challenges and especially those Hunter missions.
    It was just a mockery to other FPS games in general. So I felt the need to explain, so in the future, whoever is responsible for the next Far Cry, if there will be one, will endeavor to not make it such a disgrace to FPS games as this one.

    Here are the reasons why I think that Far Cry 3 sucked, and why it is without a doubt the most over-hyped game of 2012...
    (in no particular order)

    1. The voice acting is terrible... it sounds like there are only 5 men who have had their voices recorded (and even less with women) and on top of that, just about every piece of dialogue is exactly the same with only the voices changed. Raykat warriors and enemies alike can also have their voices change completely after finishing saying everything that is possible for them to say. They simply have another voice that is different from their first one and they just repeat almost the same dialogue.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    2. Again with the voices... after liberating an outpost you'll be able to hear no less than at least 2 times the guy next to the bulletin board tell you that "You can help out by checking stuff on the bulletin board" which are only ever 1 to 2 of 2 different things. Normally you will be told more like 4-6 times. Also "I wonder what she's cooking" who bro?? WHO? THERE'S NO ONE ELSE AROUND!!!! "We'll free this place of pirates, Citra promised!" NO YOU WON'T. YOU'RE USELESS. I'MDOINGEVERYTHINGFORYOU!!!
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    3. Mini-games... these are pointless because it is easy as heck to find enough money in the game, especially after you get the perk/skills that allow you to sell things for more at the store and find more money on people when you loot them. Add that together with the fact that if you just 'takedown' everyone, you loot them automatically (with the relevant skill) and thus this makes getting money easy as... oh and unlocking radio towers makes all the expensive guns 'free' too. Just about every guy towards the end can be looted for about $50... + items So yeah these mini-games are neither fun, (and the poker one is especially stupid, especially on expert) nor are they a good source of money when massacring everyone is far better. Those Raykat challenges which are just slaughter fests.. it's so easy to more than double the [UBI] guy's best score... free $500 and 400xp... no 'challenge' there. Also Raykat warriors are pathetically broke compared to other people.. looting them for $1? LOL!!
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    4. Raykat warriors are the most useless and pathetic bunch of guys in the entire game. They die in 1 or 2 shots.. just about any predator animal can kill them in 1 hit.. they are pathetic, they are weak, they are in no way "true warriors" at all and just about every one of Vaas' or Hoyt's men kill them in seconds. When betraying them they don't do any damage to you, nor do they knock you down if you get close. They suck at shooting you, or anything else. I have never come across a bunch of 'good' guys who are so useless at fighting in any FPS game I have ever played in my life.. If they aren't dying and falling all over each other they're driving around doing absolutely nothing or uselessly sitting at a base which never ever comes back under attack from any antagonists in the game after being freed. Sure guys, don't even wear body armor or anything! Those tattoos will protect you! You'll be right!
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    5. Animals are stupid.. heck, just about every AI in the game is stupid. Even Hoyt's men are stupid letting you sneak past them so easily. The only difference is they carry high powered weapons etc. that do tons more damage if you leave yourself out in the open. If anything they're just more 'unforgiving' and hold down the trigger finger more than any of the other 'bad guys' in the game. But back to Animals...
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    6. Yes.. animals are stupid and easy to kill. You want to kill a bear? Shoot it 3 times with a shotgun.. you want to kill a tiger.. shoot it 5 times with a shotgun.. ummm how is that realistic? How does a tiger take more bullets to bring down than a bear? Why are the bears so small in this game.. they're bear-ly (lol) bigger than Jason and he's just a 'kid'. Why aren't there enough tigers in this game? Dogs and everything else, which start off as dangerous as, at the start of the game. Become an annoyance that you don't care about later on. Because you can easily massacre anything that isn't a Leopard, Bear or Tiger with any of the weapons you get later on. Thus making hunting one of the shortest "good things" about the game. Also add the fact that those caged animals that kill some enemies for you if you free them. Later on they die in seconds before being able to do anything because everyone has guns, (and training) that they can easily deal with them. Add together the fact that all the animals are so predicable once you learn their patterns. Bears always stand up before attacking etc. Buffalo always prod the ground before attacking etc.. thanks for all the warnings guys!
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    7. Every area that is liberated or cleared completely of collectibles etc. is never returned to in the game. Got the skins you need, killed the people you needed to, done the quests etc. and a bunch of other stuff? Ok, cool! No need to ever return to the starting town ever, (I even forgot the name) all places apart from the 'temple' are just places that are liberated, looted and then you never go back there. It's pathetic seeing as 85% of the game is just something that is completed and then moved on with. Especially considering that the game advertises itself like an open world game.. Need some shark skins? Kill 3 of them with a mounted gun on a boat and you'll never have to ever go swimming in the ocean ever again 99.9% guaranteed! Unless you want go and oggle yourself at dem pretty jellyfishes!
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    8. Jason Brody is the world's worst protagonist of any game ever. Seriously.. a stupid rich kid with equally stupid friends.. Ok that fits. But he never grows up... and that's no spoiler.. I'll explain more later, but it had to be added here so you don't think I'm crazy for not having complained about it sooner. His 'personality' never matches all the stuff he has done. Neither at the start of the game, nor at the end.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    9. Weapon balancing is ridiculous. It takes 3 grenades that you dropped yourself at your own feet to kill you with 6 bars of health... LOL WHAT??? Molotovs have no 'inital damage from exploding in your face and just do damage-over-time.. but it takes ages for you to burn to death even at 0 bars of health whilst standing in a fire... on top of this some enemies take so many bullets to go down, others take none.. Heavys can take 3+ grenades (which seems fine if I can drop 3 of them at my feet and die) but it's still completely unrealistic... not only that but they take at least 20 bullets from your best Assault Rifle in the face to die? So a grenade won't blow up their gas-tank (on the flamers etc).? Boooorringg.. instead force me to assassinate them, snipe them with the AMR or just fill them full of lead over and over again...
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    10. Bugs... so many bugs.. I took a video of a few, others I didn't manage to get on Fraps so I'll have to explain them.

    1. Some weird water glitch after coming out of a cave (those who have gotten up to the point should be able to recognise where it is) It stopped after I just jumped back into the water again. Read the Youtube description for info: http://youtu.be/BRTI0MhYw4U
    2. Some weird glitch with these 2 bushes after being touched: http://youtu.be/PP7oOuaR8qU
    3. Stupid force-field/barrier glitch on Hoyt's compound. (Read the Youtube description for more info. POSSIBLE MINOR SPOILERS!!!): http://youtu.be/cOORMvN161o

    Bugs I didn't get on Fraps:
    1. Walk up to almost any Raykat car that has Raykat warriors in it (may work with anyone else), and place a C4 right onto the driver, it'll disappear and when you go to detonate it, blood will spray everywhere (like it's inside him) and he'll fall out of the car dead. No explosion, no BOOM, no nothing. If there's any any other blue/yellow guys around they'll attack you. Innocents will probably run etc. It looks ridiculous and hilarious. I recommend recreating it LOL!
    2. Killing anyone with a gun who is being mauled by an animal on the ground will cause the dead person's body to shake and jitter continuously (like the bushes in the video) until you leave the area.
    3. Taking the 'enhancement medicine' which gives you more than your normal amount of health is bugged. When you catch on fire after taking it, you will burn and will be unable to put yourself out until you have burned all your bars of health away back down to 5 (1 minus your max) which is stupid. I took one and caught on fire straight after. Then I just ran around patting myself automatically (there was no option to put the fire out) until I had lost enough health from burning alive... stupid stupid stupid.
    4. Not a bug but: http://tinypic.com/r/atxd3m/6 why the heck is there a km/h and MPH on the same speedometer and yet it looks like it's really just in MPH? WTF DEVELOPERS???!!! Did you guys even go to school? Also thanks for only letting us drive at like 60MPH or Km/h or whatever it is and not giving us an awesome car or something near the end that we can use to fang around the island with.. like Hoyt's personal Ferrari or something.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    11. Dragging people with the relevant skill after killing them with a takedown is the slowest thing ever and if anything is more annoying than it is useful. When you quickly want to kill someone and then move on normally you are stuck while the game waits if you want to drag them or not for about another second. Which is great (not) when you are getting shot at by people... Also falling damage in the game is seriously messed up. Jump whilst running down any hill and watch yourself lose THREE BARS of health.. and then either relocate your wrist/finger etc. or stupidly bandage cuts on your arm up.. LOL!??? 3 BARS from just a tiny jump... sliding down cliffs is the same.. just slide down slowly and watch a bar or 2 disappear.. Also since when can you ever use those above and below takedowns? Let alone the double above and below ones. It seems so much work was put on them and all in all I was only able to kill 1 person with the normal above one, and only 1 with the normal below one. There's never any situation where you can use either of those even if you stealth most of the game which I did.. and I got these at the very start thinking they would be awesome for the XP but in reality you never get to use them.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    12. Molotovs suck.. throw one at someone, 50% chance that they will catch on fire... A guy with molotovs throws one at you, 100% chance that the entire island will catch on fire and burn like the deepest circle of hell.. this is so stupid. Molotovs have the worst range ever and the worst reach when they do explode. Fire sucks in general because even when you're standing in a green area of grass that has just caught fire and only slightly gone black, you're still on fire and forced to put it out.. Not only that but nothing actually 'burns down' it just goes black which is pretty pathetic. Also you can't even blow anything up with C4 or mines.. environments were at least a little destructible with Far Cry 2... why downgrade here?
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    13. As if everything is so flammable. So yeah, you think Far Cry 3 is cool because it's only the second game (after Far Cry 2 anyway) to have burnable/flammable environments? Well, as if everything so green is going to go up like it hasn't seen water for 3 decades.. it rains every-so-often anyway so why does everything go up like it's already been doused with Kerro? Or is that rain actually kerosene rain? Which brings me to...
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    14. Not enough weather effects. I am glad that Far Cry 3 had rain sometimes and thunderstorms but they don't happen enough. Neither does night-time, nor is it very dark when it is night. Nor are enemies any less likely to spot you when it is night. So useless that this mechanic is in no way realistic at all. Also I'm pretty sure that tropical islands experience a lot of rain etc..
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    15. Syringes suck.. and are a pain to use. So you give us a bunch of different types of Syringes and yet only limit the amount we can carry to 12? So I can carry 4 weapons, $10,000 max and 16 something rockets but I can only make a Syringe kit big enough for 12 Syringes.. and you're only going to let me bind/assign 2 buttons to Syringes and I have to share these buttons with Fire arrows, etc. for the bow as well? Also a repair kit for the car takes an entire weapon slot???? and all I get is some money for helping some clown fix his car.. or my own? Hardly worth it! Get real man, that is so stupid. No cool HUD like Dishonored where I can't instantly bring up my Syringe kit and pump myself full of drugs...? No awesome Syringe recipe that gives me the effects of everything near end-game? Not only that but even with the skill, half the Syringes barely last more than 30 seconds which isn't enough because everyone knows you can't just keep popping them whilst getting shot at in a fight. You're already doing that with the healing ones already! Also can't use more than 1 at a time.. which is just dumb. Also the constant 'doping' just to stay alive is pretty un-thoughtout.. why not add food? You're on a tropical island.. so why create drugs for the game but not cool meals etc. that you can eat to provide huge long time bonuses etc.. no instead we just inject ourselves over NINE THOUSAAAND TIMES with roids while we're being shot at so we can continue to shoot back.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    16. What the ... were WHITE FLOWERS ever used for anyway????!!!! So there's white flowers around.. yet what ingredient are they ever used for? I was carrying around 20 of them at the end of the game but they were never used for anything.. not only that but why can I not find a single green plant anywhere near the end of the game? Is that your idea of making the game 'harder' by just forcing me to spend the $10,000 I so easily made on just buying healing meds at the self-serve? LOL!!
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    17. Where did that old guy go who gave you the Tatau anyway? In fact where did any of the Raykat warriors go and when did the game change from being about liberating the island from psychos, to saving your friends, to killing, to saving etc. again and again. The story jumps around like mad because there really is no story. It's just like Far Cry 2... go here, kill these guys.. go there, blow this up etc. How on earth does that girl (Don't remember her or anyone else's name because lets face it, they aren't really part of the game) think that she is going to repair that boat with a GIGANTIC hole in the side of it!!! Look at this hole!: http://tinypic.com/r/141866b/6
    The picture is kind of dark, but that's HUGE and you're going to fix that.. and umm.. how exactly are you going to get it out of that cave? LMFAOO!!! It won't fit out the entrance and there's no other way out.. Are you going to fix it, then dismantle it and then put it back together again outside BAHAHAHA???!
    At least things like Halo have a story, and are moderately believable even if it's a bad one... Not only that but Far Cry 3 is soooo predicable! (See spoilers point 22).
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    18. Why does everyone have to either be on Drugs (the doctor), or on Drugs (Vaas) or on Drugs (the guy who needs me to get his medicine, AND DON'T say that he wasn't on drugs!) or on Drugs (your idiot blonde friend who I don't remember his name anyway) why is everyone taking drugs? Or is insane in general.. it gets a bit much and it gets a bit boring when everyone is crazy and has some stupid crazy story to tell. "My daughter got abducted by aliens and they also took the packages man!!" seriously... w..t..f?
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    19. Hunting mini-games suck in particular. "Go here and kill 3 bears with a pistol" are you nuts? Even with the medicine that makes you kill animals faster it still takes more than an entire clip to kill one, and they are all grouped together in a bunch and easily maul your face off... "Kill 5 leopards with a bow" the bow sucks and is so inaccurate. (Here you will complain about my aim, but I bet I'm a better shot than you) arrows go through enemies and into the soil if they are too close, and everything is, when you're being chased by a leopard or some other predator whilst trying to kill it with a bow. And how on earth do Komodo dragons take more shots to kill than most other things? I don't care if they have tough skin (I've watched enough National Geographic) to know that an arrow or two would kill or at least immobilize a Komodo..
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    20. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GIVE US THE OPTION TO TURN OFF THE CAR RADIO!!! Seriously, there's only 5 songs played at all, and all the dubstep in the game is disgusting. I ended up dying like 20 times whilst torching all the Marijuana/Cannabis in that level and being forced to listen to 'Make it bun dem' by Skrillex on LOOP over, and over and over. It made my ears bleed, and almost gave me cancer. Did you clown devs really think that putting dubstep in this game and then adding dubstep references like when I walk up to Vaas' headquarters the handbook says "Because only bad guys listen to dubstep", that this would make the game 'cool' and appeal to everyone of this day and age? Dubstep is trash, but that's a whole different topic and is again, only my opinion. But christ, your made an 'island' game and there is a plethora of 'relevant' music available on earth that you could have put in it. Even Kokomo by The Beach Boys would have been better. Are you really too lazy and too cheap to pay licencing on a bunch of good, appropriate songs, that you'd rather get 1 or 2 really famous, really popular ones and pay a fortune in licencing for those instead? Especially when they don't fit the 'mood' of the game at all. But no really, I dreaded every time getting into a car because it's always just the same stuff. You know you've played Far Cry 3 too long when you remember every one of those little tunes off by heart...

    EDIT: Apparently there is the option to turn off the radio? FFFUUUUUUU-- I played for days with it on.. AAARRGGGHHH!!!! Then at least make it more obvious how to turn it off!!!
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    21. Why am I able to craft things underwater? Why am I able to fast-travel in mid-air while falling or flying or parachuting, or whilst in a car going over a cliff to avoid from dying? Why do jellyfish look like they are filled with halogen? Even after you unlock and get all the skills your Tatau isn't completed (if you go and look at the Tattoo in skills) which I think is stupid. It's only completed after you choose an ending. How can something so important, and so previously referenced be bugged and messed up like this?

    22. Natives and NPCs are useless. Why when I shoot someone doesn't a random other person draw a gun and shoot me back? How come 'none' of the natives have guns.. They all have the money to pay me for services rendered, and there are self-serve stores and normal gun stores everywhere. Why apart from me, and the other gangs are we the only ones with guns? Why aren't there are couple of psychos who will shoot me when I come onto their property? How come everyone except for the bad guys knows that I am not a bad guy even when I am dressed as one. (Wearing Hoyt's men' disguise)? Why does everyone believe everything I say, or that happens?
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    23. WHY IS JASON BRODY THE MOST PATHETIC, THE MOST ANNOYING HERO EVER???!!! "C'mon Liza!!!" "I'M COMING LIZA!!!!" "WHERE ARE YOU LIZA!!!" Yeah mate.. just give everyone else's position away by screaming stuff out to Vaas' men right at the start... what a tool. Not only that but even after becoming a 'warrior' near the end of the game, you still pop out stupid one liners like "BOOM!!" and "THIS IS AWESOME!!!" seriously, people have raped (and tried to rape you), murdered and killed your friends, shot your brother in the neck in front of you etc. and you're out having a vacation? No one, not even a stupid insipid American, no... NO American has EVER been this stupid.. it's not possible for any American to be this stupid, and this stuck up.. and your brother Riley... and all of your friends etc.... guys... adding a bunch of this: "OMG FF-- F- F-- OMG SH!-- etc. etc. etc." "We're gonna die!! OMG" doesn't add suspense to the game at all, it sounds ridiculous amongst all the "WHOOOHOO!!! YEAAH!!" *whilst being chased by bandits and being shot at by mounted guns as you drive away* Do I even need to explain why this fails on every possible level? These idiots cannot decide if they find it fun being raped, tortured and shot at, or if they think it's terrifying. And thanks for all the pathetic stereotypical descriptions of everything in the game's in-game 'handbook' especially about Australians etc. pathetic and completely unfunny.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    24. Again about Jason Brody... why? Because after everything above that I explained about him.. I don't care whether he dies or not in the game (and thus I die whilst playing). Which brings me to..
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    25. Dying isn't a problem at all, in fact, sometimes it can speed things up for you. Say I have to go down a mountain to a small house to get a quest etc. and there's a huge cliff in front of me and I have a car. I don't care.. I'll drive the car off the cliff and jump out half way.. and hope I survive.. healing is free (it just takes time) if I have no meds. So I'll simply patch myself up before. If I die? That's okay.. no weapons, ammo, materials or money lost after dying.. I just respawn at the top of the cliff again, free to try again. Because lets face it? Who wants to drive all the way down the road in a windy path and waste time and take ages yeah? (This is before you get the wingsuit which allows you to jump off anything with no problem) Jason B is so annoying that I don't care whether he lives or dies. If I am on a mission and I get a checkpoint before dying, I respawn with no enemies around me and I am free to just go to the next location I need to. The whole dying mechanic is stupid...
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    26. Doctor 'predicable' I assume? How obvious was it going to be that you were sent downstairs by Hoyt to beat up your own brother. How predicable was it that at the end Citra goes nuts and kidnaps your friends to keep you on the island. How predicable was it that the pothead Doctor would be killed and his house burned down.. how predicable was it that you would have to choose between a hot black chick, or your friends. How predicable was it that your brother was going to die whilst you're stupidly reading the map just outside Vaas' camp. How predicable was it that the disgusting Australian ex-army guy was actually gay and you'd have to kill him (Citra wanted the knife anyway duhhhhhh).
    Note: [Him being disgusting had nothing to do with him being Australian though, I didn't mean that to sound racist, I'm an Aussie anyway if you hadn't already guessed from the way I write] I could go on, and on and on. Every 'trap' you walk into is sooooo predicable. The only 2, unpredictable things in the entire game. Were BOTH the crocodile encounters. Which scared me half to death with headphones on. Those were the only unpredictable moments in the game.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    27. Stupid pacing in the game.. So at the end at the poker game, you're just going to phase into a 1 on 1 knife fight with Hoyt..? That's it? What about all the guards.. oh right afterwards you somehow massacred them all.. Pathetic.. the game does this again and again. Even with Vaas. You just somehow 'blink' and ta-da there he is! Ready and waiting for you to stab him to death. Taking all of the 'impossible situations' you were in, and then just using the power of 'magic' or whatever it was to make everything disappear so it's just you and your kill and they have no hope in hell of killing you. It's not satisfying at all.. it's just "here we go again..."
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    28. The weird magic compass? Ok.. the whole 'get me the sword' thing is just crazy... magic compass with 3 parts.. and how on earth do Vaas' men end up everywhere? The last piece is easy as to get... just 2 Komodo dragons to take care of... boring.. But I'll try not to pick apart the missions etc. even though they're all lame and repetitive.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    29. No decent rewards in the game.. just money and xp.. when you've already got all your skills all that matters is money. When you have tons of both there is no need to do any missions at all for a $0 reward. 6 notes and you get the sword/dagger thing.. 20 easy relics and you get another gun etc.. that's like 10% of how many you actually need to find to find them all. I thought you would have learned from how boring we all said getting all the diamonds was in Far Cry 2. Nothing even all that incredible if you do get everything. Who would bother?
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    30. The multiplayer sucks. Please don't think that I would forget about the multiplayer. I could write a whole separate thread on how much the multiplayer sucks. So here i'll just say that it sucks for reasons that everyone knows. Also this thread is about the Single-player so I won't go into details.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    31. Far Cry 3 stole so many things from other games... Radio Towers are the same as lookouts in Assassins Creed.. the 'evil' ending is basically the same as Fear 2. Ruins might as well have come from Uncharted games, and tons of other games... climbing etc. was all so 'static' just look for rope or vines to jump to.. and the jumping and climbing system was so stupid. You could either dive bomb off the edge or not drive far enough..
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    32. Little things like driving into a small tree and your car getting totaled instead of plowing the tree over. Shadows never seem to be drawn all that well... there is tons of 'floating grass' that looks like it was all placed so quickly by devs and without any double checking at all. Driving off a small cliff and your car getting totaled again, instead of just getting a little bump.. whilst driving over another bump results in it exploding.. Can't even change the view when driving.. The map at the start showed that Jason and his brother had 'escaped' the camp when in actual fact they were basically still in it.. annoying repetitive dialogue... enemies can only ever seem to say 5 things each.. 5 things from the Raykat.. (as explained above) Vaas' men "When I find you I'm going to gut you" "I'll kill you" "It's so f**ng hot" "Ah it burns when I... (lol this one is funny though)" and Hoyt's men "Ooh Hoyt is hiring pretty boys now.. etc (LOL)" but still it's all so limited. All these little things just make the game feel so cheap and pathetic.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    33. The ending... seriously? Either save your friends and complain about being 'a monster' (no s*** sherlock!!) and then that's it... knife in the sand. Oh and it doesn't matter you can continue on the island anyway (even though you left if you saved your friends). Dumb!!!??
    Or... you kill your girlfriend, have sex with Citra only to die... (which is lamer than lame) because she boo-hoo'd so much about you leaving her if you took the other ending. Either way, she dies or you die.. there's no rationale in that..
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    I mean it's obvious that every 9.5 rating was given before anyone got even half way through the game.. and the fact that it takes days to finish 100% even on easy due to finding all the collectibles, relics, notes, etc. and freeing all the outposts, radio towers and completing all the side-missions. It's so obvious that no one had actually finished the game before thousands of people gave their reviews on it on IGN and other similar sites. Not only that but it is so obvious that tons of the 'pro' reviews were obviously 'paid' tip-off reviews that are completely skewered.. there are so many problems with FC3, which I have both listed, and even failed to list that there is no way it's worth even close to a 9.5 out of 10 on any of the sites I have seen it rated on.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    I really hope no one bothers to waste their time complaining over minor discrepancies in my post. I mean seriously, I know I was being a bit nit-picky with some of these but the point I am trying to make is that there is too much consistency in how bad the game is, how many bugs there is and just everything else in general. So please don't bother going through my post and pointing out the tiny things. But please do feel free to enlighten me and others by fixing any errors or pointing anything else out. I'd really like that.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    Otherwise if you seriously think this game deserves its 9.5 out of 10 rating.. then please enjoy your ignorance and obviously you're used to just playing stuff like COD... because that must be convenient for you. Also I apologise for any spoilers, you were warned. There might be the teeny-tiniest little ones before the huge WARNING. But really if things like that spoil the game for you, then you obviously don't play many games. I hate spoilers myself so any others are totally unintentional, because I read this entire post through many times to try and iron them out.

    Also feel free to add things that you didn't like about the game as well here if I missed any.. and I am sure I missed hundreds. But in all reality this is enough of my time to spend on how disappointed I was with where the potential of this game went.

    seems you went to alot of bother for no reason, ppl wont read through all that in a forum....

    i read the first few lines and already your mistaken, each tower is different to climb, each hunter mission is a different animal and requires a different weapon, each outpost is different....you get my point ?? there all different

    to me it seems this isnt the game for you so i suggest you take it back to the shops and sell it !!

    I read the whole thing. I can not argue with any of that your points are valid. The thing is just that most of these things are not very important to me. They might be unfortunate and could have been better but they are far away from being major flaws.

    "Most overrated FPS ever"?

    Not even close.

    It looks like you have too much time on your hands. Have you considered doing something constructive?

    I think you are being overly critical...I mean I can put any game on full blast and make it seem like ****. I agree with some of the things..like how dumb some animals are (crocodiles mostly..I mean, really), how unaware enemies can be..

    I wish the game had less hand holding (mini map, HUD, easy enemies, long time for enemies to detect you, glowing objects, "tagging", etc)...

    It's not perfect, but I did like it a lot. Just hope they patch in a "Infamous" difficulty level to make the game more challenging, and allow for enemies to retake bases. They went too far with that from what FC2 had.

    Aw ****, I was hoping enemies can attack captured command posts. That sucks, but I was planning on leaving quite a few enemy camps open just so that I still have someone to shoot at after I beat the actual story. Has anyone else done this with success?

    jason is a kid? he's an adult, so bears are the right size. there are different kind of bears and the bigger variants don't live in tropical environments.
