fc5 has a mechanic where u do stuff in a region to fill up a meter, when the meter fills up you can do the boss fight mission. rather, you HAVE to do the boss fight mission as the game pulls you out of whatever amusing open world shit you were doing and throws you into a long corridor shooter mission that you can't get out of. i haven't booted the game up since it did that and i probably never will tbh.
a shame b/c it was a mindless good time til then, in the ubi tradition.

Far Cry 2 (Steam) ended up solving my CTD and graphics glitches & crashes by setting it to use DirectX10 instead of 9. plays very smooth and looks like a dream. i love the varied weather, the wind storms that rustle up. the tall grasses you can hide in. this BOTW and MGS3 for top 3 videogame GOAT (Grass of All Time)
there are not as many wild animals as the new games however, which kinda sucks cos you are in Africa and there could be some cool stuff. also i have lost so many missions due to enemies just pulling up in a car and running me over. it sucks, you can be 10 mins into a mission and a car comes out of nowhere and insta kills you back to the last save.

the diamond hunting is a lot of fun. all over the map there are suitcases with diamonds (upgrade material) to find. often they are hidden in an out of the reach place you have to jump to or something and it turns into a little side puzzle where you are figuring out where to go and how to get to them.

in the better moments it definitely captures that Chuck Norris 80s movies, sliding under bullets while you single-handedly waste an army of mercs in the jungle.

I've only watched someone else play it but whats with the endless, repeating "run thru the house shooting ghost people" hallucination trial? Why make the player do that over and over?
