    booo!

    you look at something like GTA4, ok not eveyone likes that as a game, but the million things you can do on route to a mission are incredible, then farcry2 well all you can do is drive a slow arse jeep and kill the same dumb AI dudes at the same check points you cleared a million times!

    Use the bus. Yep there is still a lot of driving involved but you should never need to drive from one side of the map to the other.

    Surprised how much people have walked, gonna check my stats tonight but I very rarely found myself without transport.

    How do you check your stats? I seem to only see how much of the game I've completed.

    Very true. Although from the moment I picked up the old bolt action sniper rifle in my first hour of play, I didn't do a mission without a long range weapon. So plenty of bad guys deaded with one shot. But prob not as much as 35% of my shots fired, you are right.

    I couldn't have got through the game without the buses. Not so much because they plonk you right next to your missions target, but more because they get you close enough that you don't have to deal with the annoying respawns at each checkpoint etc. Although more often than not one of the bus stops is a stones throw from your target.

    * Hopes for mod to add twice as many bus stops in-game* :p

    Also, wouldnt it have been fun.... if just occasionally.... your bus fell over a cliff, broke down, or got ambushed??? :D

    They really do help a lot, unless you’ve not spotted the one right in the middle like I didn’t originally.

    Anyone know if the correct ports to forward on the router are 9000 - 9004?

    I'm getting random disconnections. I have updated all the pb clients.

    Does this game get any better I've done about 15% but can only play it once a week as it's so dull.

    I'd go mad without the bus! I've only done 25% or so too! I'll do a couple more missions today.

    Please please please dont for the love of god, think that this game has anything at all to do with the original!!!

    Wait... There is a bit of jungle in it... And some guns and stuff.

    Oh, so its does have something in common with the original after all??

    Except the original was good.

    I don't get how some of you guys have walked more than you've driven.

    I've driven nearly twice as much as I've walked, and I've walked over 100km
