Don't let my steam hours fool you, I played this game alot on disk before I got steam.
Be prepared to not have a single dangit thing handed to you.
- Map? You'll have to hold it in your hand.
- Stealth? Just as hard as real life would be.
- Malaria? Watch out son, you got it.
- Fire? ♥♥♥♥ yeah.
For the best experience, I recommend playing on hard, it makes it ever more satisfying. Gameplay wise, it's difficult, but worth every second. The world is very atmospheric, and I loved ever second of my many playthroughs.
Story is pretty good, some very interesting moments, The Jackal is great, but some of the story mission characters are pretty one dimensional and bland.
I suggest choosing one of the playable characters with interesting tattoos and clothing on the arms, to give you something to look at, such as Xianyong Bai (my personal favorite)
. Anyway, expect harsh unforgiving enemies, beautiful landscapes, an interesting story, and re-spawning outposts, but don't give up.
