Anyway I purchasedAmazed to see all the HATERS that is really very rare! I heard a rumor that there was a Torrent with a broken game....
Anyway I purchased the Limited edition of the game online have had no issues whatsoever. (I5, HD7870LE, Win7/64, 8 G Ram)
So how about the game.
I just finished FC 3 to be in the "mood" when I started playing FC 4 and I am not disappointed, yes it is the same basic concept, but there are also differences making it a new experience.
The scenery is spectacular.
The AI is much improved.
It is no longer possible to take an outpost by standing at a distance taking out the guards one by one with the sniper rifle. The guards take more damage and they will hunt you down instead of reverting to their scripted track 2 seconds after you shot the guy next to them.. The alarms are better protected against tampering, so you have to get close or stand at an awkward angle to shoot at them.
There are also tons of predators, and they will kill you if you do not kill them first. So walking around is no longer safe.
Hunting is MUCH more fun than in FC3 and you need to hunt a lot of animals to get your gear upgrades. Lots of variation and much more challenging than in FC3.
The weapon upgrades are slower to appear, you will have to advance much further before getting a mini gun...again it puts more pressure on the player and makes it impossible to finish the game in a few hours.
Flying a light helicopter is great fun and flying low over water or trees have a significant visual effect on both. Making it much more life like. If you jump out of the helicopter before landing will break it bringing more realism in to the game.
I have not played more than approx 25% of the game and therefore there are lots of things yet to experience, for instance taking one of the fortresses, but I am looking forward to the ride.
If you liked FC3 then go for FC4.
If you do not like open world stealth games with a lot of side quests and just want to shoot somebody and get to the next level, then this game is not for you.

After completing the game IGot the game on Steam with a rather low expectation due to the low price and the sometimes negative feedback here. After completing the game I must say it is one of the best games I have ever played. Yes there are some glitches. Sometimes you feel like running a little too much around. Some of the bosses in the game are very difficult etc.
But the beautiful setting, the deep storyline and artistic graphics totally compensates. And if you are a little bored with the "run to the next exit and shoot some monsters on the way" games the market is full of then pick up this game, it is still available on steam at a rather low price and I promise you a very interesting journey. On the other hand if you like to learn tricky keyboard combinations to fight with very special moves, if you like to snipe, or just enjoy exploring "high tech" places, this game is not for you. The fighting engine is very special with your character doing all the moves and you just have to click the mouse at exactly the right time. In the beginning this is kind of frustrating until you learn but after a while I actually appreciated this action style very much.
Can't wait to play the sequel. Highly recommended.… Expand
