Like Farcry 2... but good

Anyone checked out the scouting missions in Episode 2 of Arma 3?

Episode 1 was gash and I found it a struggle to continue but episode 2 feels like a completely different game.

You get a base hub (for example the ship on mass effect) and you go round scouting the entire map for "events" which is basically quests. Some have special rewards like better items. This aspect of the game (with is optional) feels less like a tactical shooter and more like Far Cry 2 if it wasn't complete shit.

I quite liked it too

Which part?

Only things I found acceptable were the graphics and the real time fire. The rest was atrocious. To call it a masterpiece is an abomination.

Repetitive I can probably take. But people respawning somewhere you just drove through a minute ago? The group you're working for shooting at you?

@FelipeInside: i have to agree with you. That is what completely killed the game for me.

Far Cry 2 was complete garbage. I wish so badly i could get back the $2.49 i spent on it

I HATE SEEING IT IN MY LIBRARY

@gogoplexiorayo2: Same here, couldnt agree more. FC2 was abysmal.

OT: those side missions make great use of Altis and I really enjoyed them. Theres another open world mission when you finish the campaign too. Dont exit the game when you see the end credits!

God that Infinitely respawning enemies were bad. Let alone the atrocious A.I. and the limited fast travel option hence adding to the repetitiveness and boredom

Agreed. Gotta check out Arma 3 now, it'll probably destroy my computer though.

It is my opinion but I found Far Cry 2 a little bit boring . I forced myself to finish it . It took me one month to do so . Far Cry 3 is a lot better game , it does have issues too but at least it was enjoyable . (My opinion)

Far Cry 2 is like being in a strip club. Nice to look at, but don't touch.

That's something that generally pisses me off in most open world games (and MMO's). You have a big open environment but are attacked every 30 seconds.

In Arma the enemies have always been pretty sporadic. You can quite happily move around site seeing. If you get bored you can just speed up time as a means of fast travel.
