Since i have raved on about this game for the past 3 or 4 months i could not resist the temptation of having a quick go,2 hours later having completed 1 simple mission objective and skinning a few animals here are a few thoughts and impressions.
The game is absolutely amazingly Brilliant and i can see this taking me until Christmas just to complete it because the map is massive and there are so many objectives and side quests its unreal.
I have done the very first Radio Tower that opens up a small section of the map and had a few gun fights with the local pirates,I have no weapons ,no power ups and limited cash and just starring at the vast options in the menu and enjoying the beautiful environments is something of a revelation.
I have not touched 1% of this game because the Island is absolutely beautiful to look at and explore in its own right regardless of main story mission and side quests,Radio towers and pirate strongholds .
The game impresses me so much in the small amount of time spent playing it i really think once i have acquired some meaty weapons and got into it a little bit more I'm guessing its going to blow me away in which it does already having basically done nothing.
Skinning animals is very much Red Dead Redemption and the amount of customisation is so vast i have not quite got my head round it all yet.
Graphics are brilliant but i would not call them mind blowing,but the feel and the way the games plays out you know you have a quality FPS with at least 30/40 hours in single player alone if you want to find and do all thats on offer.
This is the game i have been waiting for for the last 12 months and without question will be my Game of the Year for sure.
More to come without spoilers when i have progressed more through this Gaming delight...
