Criggie ,
I totally agree ! Fighting a panther `W W W ` doesn`t work , i get killed every time . Fighting a bushman ,,, one hit on me and i`m dead . I hit him lots ,,, he`s still standing .I shoot him twice ,,,he`s still standing. This game could be so good , but at the moment it`s just frustrating , And those damn monkeys,,,,, jeeez ,, they are a pest !

Maybe there should have been different difficulty levels for those who are not so good at this game ?

I don't know what you guys are doing wrong, but from my complete playthrough experience:

Tribesman = 4 hits with machete or 2 hits with pistol/9mm (assuming you actually hit them and it doesn't get blocked by their weapon, so aim well).

Blocking only halves damage, not negates it, so don't even bother. If you're using your machete, start your swing as you move toward the tribesman so it hits when you get to him, then backtrack (hold SHIFT to back up faster), then rinse and repeat.

I don't know if I took less damage while in the middle of a swing myself, but whenever I did get hit, I was never one-hit killed - it was always 2-3 hits.

maybe they should just remove the natives.
Would you miss them?

Im just asking for balanced not easy :) .and I am talking 2 direct hits to the face lol he didnt have his arm up to block although with a gunshot i wouldnt think the old arm block should do anything...The animation is taking away for the expierience when the native has a stick and pokes it in a direction where im not even located and i die..

I've played through the game and feel ok that the tribesmen having lots of health, if what I found in the labyrinth is any indication they're more zombies than living people. Monkeys too?

I've also noticed that half of them carry a spear/javelin which they can throw and does a LOT of damage if it hits you. I'm guessing that most of the "instant kills" are players getting hit by it. Note that it would be nice if the player could have access to that spear/javelin, either by crafting or by being able to pick it up out of the ground and throw it back to the tribesman.

Personally, I think the main problem is the combat isn't interesting, just keep pressing the attack button until one falls. Block reducing damage from 50% (or 10% with the recent patch) No dodge, parry, kick... and the tribesmen are in some AI valley between shambling zombies and combatants who react to their environment. Either go full shambling horde or fewer but smarter individuals.

Also way too many of those "infected" monkeys, panthers don't seem to be infected so they should keep the monkey population down attacking the player only if they can't find a monkey/tribesman to kill. This was something I liked about Far Cry 3, could lead a hostile animal into an enemy camp and have it act as a distraction.

Finally, would be nice if the death screen mentioned how the player died, machette stab, monkey rock, thrown spear. Something like that.

I`m guessing this game is meant to be fun and ADVENTURE not frustration and anger ! I`ve just continued the game now and there are far too many damn monkeys for me to handle and to top that off a tribesman comes in for the attack too.My system may be a bit older , but this game really sucks my pc`s resources , whew,,, very jerky even after i`ve reduced all the graphics settings. I`ve played games like SNIPER GHOST WARRIOR 2 AND MODERN WARFARE 3 and BLACK OPS and they all ran fine with a lot more details in the game.I`m sorry i bought this game , i haven`t had one enjoyable game experience so far. My sytem consists of
dual core processor 2.4g
GTS450 card
4 gigs of ram.
I know the processor may be a bit slow , but surely with all the details turned down in the game it should perform better ? Strange thing is with all the grphics on or off its still jerky .
