Time to dispell a few myth's about this game, methinks.
Lots of people have given the single player bad reveiws so in this reveiw i would like to explain why this game is truly great.
Too much travelling? well, you could say it i suppose, the map is very big, personally, the travelling in this game is not my favorite part. however there is something fun about crusing down a dusty african road in my open top truck, if you think there is too much walking you just MUST use the games bus service, i use it alot, an awful lot because the map is a good 50km, and there are alot of guard stations/Assault trucks on the road.
The graphics, are.. to be honest pretty amazing, water, treese, the road, sky, is all beautiful. The Vehicles and Characters could of had a little more work but it still good.
Fighting - Stealth does work in this game, buy the stealth suit and the dart gun and STAY STILL, in FC2 the merc patrol's and guards respond to MOVEMENT, crouch in bushes and STAY STILL, i can't stress it enought because it is the only way you will stay alive.
Make sure to gain buddys and keep them alive, they are extremly usefull and will save your BUTT more times than you can imagine.
THE AI - does not take to many shots to die, the game is about aim more than anything, place your shots well. A single shot to the head with any weapon will drop your enemy immediatley without giving them the chance to scream. Use appropriateweapons for the situation, if you know your position is likley to be comprimised, take a LMG or a large assault rifle, if you want to be silent, take the Silence MP5 the Dart gun and a silenced pistol.
Do the side missions for extra money, and do the Gun shop jobs to upgrade your weapons set, IED's are great for setting ambushes, the camo suit is great for sneaking.
My best tip, to all of you is to PLAN AHEAD, every mission requires planning to be sucessfull, this is how militia's/assains work in the real world and its how they work in Far Cry Too.
Peace Out (y)
