Traded in Black Ops 2 for this and got codes for a predator pack which has rare animals to search for. Can't wait to get home to get this started off

I loving the game so far, not encountered any problems

All the side stuff i've found so far has been fun

If i had one minor complaint and this is just down to personal preference, i'd perfer if the game was a third person game so i could see the character i'm playing as and see the emotion he is feeling during the cutscenes

I think this may be the greatest open world game I've ever played. I love these types of games, just coming off a playthrough of Dead Island (which I love) and this really shows it up in terms of freedom and variety of gameplay, there's just so much content and I love the desert island setting. Just perfect for these games.

Technically it's a bit a train wreck on 360 (fair bit of screen tear) yet at the same time some of the most impressive visuals I've seen on console, it's a strange mix but it doesn't really get in the way of things luckily due to the quality of the game itself. There's a few little niggles here and there but overall this is an easy GOTY candidate.

What is the difference between the missions (yellow !) and the story quests (blue !)?

Do the story quests just provide extra background to what is going on or are they just missions for NPCs with no real baring

I want to just focus on the main story, outposts and radio towers and leave every else till after the ending, but if i'm missing out on important story then i'll start doing the story quests as well

I'm having a lot of fun and i've only done one quest! Highlight so far has been ambushing two bad guys. Threw a stone to distract, crept up to one, stabbed him.. then rounded back around their car to get the second guy as he ran to the body of the first. Never even knew I was there. Brilliant.

Quick question, do the bad guys vary at all? Or are they all the same.. ie.. men in red t-shirts who drive around in jeeps.

Can't wait to get a sniper rifle. I suspect i've not even scratched the surface of this game. I hope so anyway.

Just liberated my 4th outpost. Turned up, noticed a tiger in a cage so decided to shoot the lock off with my silenced MP5 and proceeded to sit back and watch it tear all the pirates to shreds before disappearing into the dense jungle. Brilliant!

Really enjoying it so far
Spoiler
. Great variety of vehicles & missions with excellent graphics, although I have noticed a bit of jitteriness.
Spoiler


The blue ! seem to be side missions & the yellow ! are main storyline. The hunting side missions remind me of RDR & the radio towers are similar to Assasin's Creed in that they help you open up the map. Think I've done 3 bases & 4 radio towers. The world is huge & you can go off and explore at your leisure & by hang glider

Played a couple if online multiplayer games. It was only TDM but it was very smooth with large maps & good gameplay. I like that when you die, you can continually tap X to prolong your life in hope that someone revives you and the killcams are very arty. At the end of the game, you can beat up the top person on the other team, or, if you've set it up as your finishing move, shake their hand for a good game. There's a few other unlocks aswell for the end sequence which I've not seen. The intel thing seems a good idea to get extra XP & upgrades for weapons

I'm not quite sure what battle cry is all about but I used it a few times & I don't know when kill/score streaks come into effect.

Overall, I'm really happy I took the plunge & got rid of Call of Duty for this. 9/10

Played the Co-op Today (very badly) really enjoyed co-op shame no friends online to play i think it helps if you all stick together...but some great touches like one fixing the boat whilst other fight off enemies...even racing the quad bombs against other players to pick up the bombs....really impressed with the co-op....need to give single player another try..

Wow, i've only played single player, but its amazing. On PC amazing gfx, plenty of variety of things to do. It seemed to take about the 1st 2 hours just for the tutorial! I've started upgrading my skills a lot. I've also just done my first take over by shooting the tiger cage I've got myself a silenced sniper to take out the camps quietly.

In the beginning its well worth getting a bigger wallet and holdall etc. Just so you dont waste the cash not being able to loot people. Money doesn't seem to be a problem at all yet.

Just done a jet ski race which was fun.

I've done the torching drug crops mission but forgot why i was given the flamethrower for it, so used it up messing around somewhere else. But it didn't matter because it was still possible without it.
Heres how...
Spoiler


All in all, a very entertaining and atmospheric game.

My God Amazon have terrible track record of late. I've seen sooo many people complaining they've not received their pre-ordered games in time for release day. It's inexcusable.

They were a day late with me as well. I've used the "Prime" delivery option for a long time now, but this year they've been terrible. Oddly enough, every delayed package has been via the Royal Mail.

One thing I never really understand about games with unlockable skills, is which to unlock first/best, when I do choose it always seems I made the wrong choice later on. I have 3 skill points unused because I don't wanna waste them!

After 4 hours solid play, I reckon this is gorgeously colourful, fun packed, open world beast of a game. Love it.

I must've checked the release date 4 or 5 times and I was convinced it was only out on Tuesday. Went to town today to have a general mooch around and realised it was already out so snapped it up.

I've only played about 2 hours so far but this has all the hallmarks of a classic. Seems to have taken the best bits of several other games and blended them together.

In my first trip in a car I managed to drive off a bridge into a river whilst trying to run over a buffalo. I swam to shore, clambered back to the road and was confronted with the wounded buffalo. Gored to death!!

I then went to a rebel camp and my stealth cover was blown by a screeching pig. It decided to follow me around until I had to stab it!

Done the 'training' mission and set off for the Doctor's house. After a slightly kamikaze effort in a jeep, I decided to start sneaking around through the grass. Scenery is amazing. Having not even got close to reaching the Doctor's house after spending about 45 mins wandering it makes me realise quite how big the map is.

Don't think I'll be leaving the house on Sunday!

I was going to ask the same question. A lot of the time Jason needs to snap his finger back in place or bandage himself up after I've had a go on one of those. Lol!

Also, how do you gracefully dive into water rather than just jump?

I've played for over 6 hours now and still only done 4 main story missions. Loving this game.
