Played this game years ago and hated it. But I decided to give it another try since I liked FC3 so much.

Well... this game still kinda sucks. Getting around is a pain in the ass, the map is annoying, I hate you constantly run into people trying to kill you, and the story is hard to follow, voice acting is shit, but its still kind of a decent game. It definitely had the potential to be a much better game with relatively minor changes.

I thought this was a cool game. Singleplayer was alright, but had a lot of problems traveling to other places. I did it though, but the reason i'd give this an 8 is mainly cause of the amazing map editor for multiplayer. Added a lot of replay value to me.

I love shooters and open world games, but this game was awful in my opinion. Its just painfully boring.

I was a bigger fan of Farcry Instincts.
