Great fun replayable and glorious graphics
6 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If you play all your games in 3D like I do then you will love this game. Rarely has an experience immersed me so deeply in the atmosphere that I have actually wanted to go out and buy a ticket to visit Africa. The story keeps you involved and you play in real time, meaning that you will be playing during nightime hours and daylight hours although you can sleep at anytime at a safe house until your preferred time of day. IE: I would sleep until dawn then play until it started to get dark and find a safehouse etc etc. Any seasoned FPS player must play this game. Your weapon can become damaged during a firefight, jam and leave you vulnerable so you must be prepared at all times. You will hear African drums and wildlife are in abundance. Very enjoyable and replayable. Well made and even wildfires if you please! Worth every cent so as Molly Meldrum would say, "Do yourself a favour and buy this game!
