    Fancy a "good laugh", check out Ubisofts decision to not allow it on Steam outside of North America...

    Lot of very, very angry people who've realised that "rip off" is a good word..

    Yep... sorry... Ubisoft have banned sales of it for anyone outside of the Americas... Allegedly because of distribution rights and of course "nothing" to do with the massive cost differential between there and the UK, Europe, etc.

    I have to laugh when the trott out the "well it costs more to localise" BS which is true to a point but not to the tune of double! Adobe take note..

    Whooops... Red door...


    Anyhoo... the only way to circumnavigate the whole thing is to get someone in the states on Steam to buy it for you and then gift it to you.

    I'd tend to agree... you destory stuff, head off maybe 400 yards equivalent and then turn round only to find it repopulated and more or less back as it was...

    TBH... it reminds me of Half Life 2 Lost Coast with a few guns... ie: pretty but you soon get bored of the view.

    Got Farcry2 on the day it was released and was about as disappointed as I was with Farcry 1, it was installed and uninstalled on the same day...

    still playing it but the next mission seems to be a new idea not like any of the rest.

    Go to place on map shoot people.

    never come across this one before.

    Does look very nice, but just way to repetitive.

    Yup.... Does make you wonder what on earth the reviewers had been smoking or how large the packets of used fivers were that sort of got found in their bags.

    Beautiful graphics, lovely fires, etc... yes...

    Gameplay? Erm? what gameplay?

    I'll wait for the bargain bin to have it in stock, but I'm still playing Fallout 3 at the mo on PC and now Gear of War 2 is out tomorrow. I'm going to be sad / mad and do the midnight pickup on it tonight though. Never done one and might be fun, dodging the drunks.

    Blimey! thats dedication! Its just another dodgy console port in my opinion. Am getting a little sick and tired of the lazyness of publishers when it comes to PC gaming.

    I wont buy it simply because of the copy protection. 3 installs is all you get, better not swap out that mobo either.
