This was the first serious FPS I played back in 2007. Basically, thanks to this game, I got interested in PC gaming.
It gave me plenty of memories and even emotions.
However, now, in 2015, as I started to play this game again, something was wrong.
Even though it run on ultra settings, it looked quiet bad. And I'm not talking about that it looks bad because it's old.
No. It's way too dark, even in sunlight, the blur gives you eye cancer, shadows are lagging, apart from some crates and other stuff everything is solid and the models change their LOD as you approach them. This was the most frustrating issue from all.
Now let's talk about the actual gameplay.
It's even worse.
I downloaded a Realism Mod, which meant to change on the "shoot 20 bullets into his chest then finally he'll die" situation, and on many oher terrible mistakes. It was still rubbish.
You may have heard of the respawning enemies AFTER you liberate a checkpoint. It is utterly stupid, and I'd put the person who programmed this into this situation in real life. In short, I'm talking about this:
You drive peacefully on the dusty road, when suddenly, there is a small checkpoint of the local military. They immediately start to shoot at you, without a question. When you killed them all, and occupied it, you drive along. After like 30m, you remember, that you forgot to pick up ammo, so you turn back. What a suprise, there are soldiers again!! And this goes on and on, every 40 something small base works the same. They even chase you if you drive through them.
Anyways, back to the rewiev.
You can't pick up multiple missions, since the new one would abort the current. How hard could it be to make it possible, and let the player switch between them?
The narration and voices are terrible. They are monotone, and world-weary.
The game doesn't give you the option to play stealthy. I killed a guard pretty far from the others while crouching, with my machete - stealth kill, as it's called nowdays. Guess what. The others miraculously figured out where I am in the 70cm high grass, and opened fire. There is an expensive body armor called "Camo Suit" which grants more invisibility. I read, it doesn't work either.
The story is lame as well.
I really hoped, that it'll bring back the good memories, but sadly it couldn't.
Everybody said it was a bad game and I didn't believe them. Now I do.
Go buy Far Cry 3 or 4, those are masterpieces compared to this.
