Summary: I was able to install the game from my LG GSA-H62N dvd burner but when I tried to run it the securom claimed the disc is not legitimate. After problems with about 3 securom titles, I gave in and bought a new sony optiarc 7240s and it plays now.
Pros: Stunning sound Good graphics, both the engine and the artwork The cinematography of the cut-scenes is some of the best I've seen.
Cons: I find the gameplay less challenging then the original. When enemies are behind cover, the ones on the end are usually pretty exposed. Since the iron sights are now only wobbly for half a second it's easy to get them. I haven't found much use for my squads, except of course for the gimmicky bazoo...
Summary: I recommend this game for the online play, not for the story line. I noted the 'to be continued', and hope that the next game they put out in this series will be less of the Vietnam era and more of the WWII era for character story.
Pros: Graphics - 5 eggs Historical Value - 4 eggs Game playability - 4 eggs. I find the game to be very enjoyable from an eye candy perspective Online was a little weird but the graphics are there. The ability to utilize your cover is a very good selling point.
Cons: Character History. While there was a very large amount of effort and writing put into the character story of this game... it was in my opinion generated towards the wrong target market. If you want to sell a game about psychedelic characters, then make a more modern type game.. if you want to tar...
Summary: This game is pretty good but at time is little slow (running it on a very good gamming PC). The controls are easy to handle (except maybe for grenades). The downside is that there are a lot "movie" portions and you just have to go through them and watch.
Summary: No doubt great gameplay, great graphics, got Far Cry 2 at the same time & hardly played it, online side is pretty poor & the worst part for me is how short the game is, I hardly get a chance to play & yet completed it in what seemed only a few visits to the pc, great game so 5 stars for fun but very...
A fun and solid gaming experience, but ultimately the lesser of the series.

Summary: I completed it just now and err I was kinda disappointed. The Game itself was great and I liked the storyline (though it kept reaching highpoints midway which sorta made the ending a bit dull and disappointing in itself).
Summary: Nice graphics, shame about the game play. It still feels as if it is on rails. I could not make sense of the story line, probably because I did not care too much about it. What was the point of the bit that involved running through a burning building?
Excerpt: Det första jag märkte när jag startade spelet var att kontrollerna var helt annorlunda i jämförelse till andra skjut/krigsspel, detta var nästan intill störande. Granat som oftast är "G" knappen är här på knapp "F". Att sikta gör du konstigt nog med scrollknappen.
Pros: Bra story, realistiskt, man får ha truppkommando, hyfsad grafik . Bra effekter .
Cons: Svårt, konstiga kontroller, dålig intelligens på soldaterna .
