FarCry 2: Start Crying Now

I was looking forward to this game. But after reading some real experiences by gamers – I might just skip this. A gamer by the nick of unrealweapon posted some of his comments which were unanimously agreed by early adopters of this game and the Flaw list is just rediculous. For a complete list, read on:

1. game freezes when upload map.
2. unrealistic amount of bullets to take down ppl
3. Gay AI, no need to aim at u to shoot at u

    Wow great compilation list, yes ALL these annoyances are true and acknowledge by gamers. The most frustrating part IMO is that mission scripts are buggy and you end up being stuck unable to continue the game. Multiplayer is hopeless no amount of patching will make online play interesting for me. Single player would be great if they sort it out and issue a patch.

    I just got the game last nite, so will check it out this weekend to see how bad it really is. But from the look of things and what people are saying in forums – I am keeping my fingers crossed.
