Well, we certainly seem like happy hippies, don't we? c:
Personally, shooter games aren't my thing at all. They more rile me up then relax me. -shrug-

The first one was better. My word for this game is: overdone. They really took things too far with this one, such as the Mercs' obsession with money (Mui has become such a shallow character, in my opinion) and the cover art and game menus are just plain ugly. But the most annoying thing, to me, is that everyone talks waaaaay too much. Mui comments on every tank (even tanks you bought! "OOOH an enemy tank! Nuke it or steal it??") but the worst is Fiona's "IF YOU'RE EVER FEELING LOST.........." I need to count how many times she says that when I play...

I think what I morn the most is the loss of exploration. Sure... I mean, you can still explore in this one... but Fiona's constant jabbering and "Oh hey, there are hidden troops in these forests!" really takes away that sense of uncertainty when you turn down an empty dirt road. Actually, my opinion would change completely if I could figure out a way to turn Fiona off...

Yes! I love him. Laughing I like being able to fly out onto the oil platforms too. That's quite fun.

Hard-core shooting games make me want to choke goldfish.
