Though to say this game was under-appreciated was perhaps a bit of a stretch?
Personally I'd take this game over Crysis any day but again - that's just my opinion and I wouldn't say you were wrong for not agreeing with it.

And err yes the game has some issues - but I really enjoyed it and got wrapped up in the narrative so much that by the end I was emotionally drained.
And I played it on the 360 too.
My major grip is the lack of civilians but the game was just gorgeous to look at and play and in places was fun and quite interesting - I also did a lot of driving to edges of areas to avoid those patrols which in a war torn country of million would be many.
Its a long game and I really enjoyed the 2nd half also bombing about in a boat etc. In many ways the is a better experience and feel objectively more realistic and fun the dying a trillion times in games - which I also enjoy at times - like halo and modern warfare 2.
I for one hope they iron out the problems and give us a FarCry 3!
its definitely my cuppa chae.

Maybe if they didn't ALL want you dead. One of the most annoying things about FC2 was that no matter where you were going you had to stop at every single intersection and kill all the black people.

I'm sorry but I have never played a more dull and repetitive RTS.

If you're going to make the hardcore guys trundle around the map endlessly then so be it. But give normal human beings with normal attention spans a chance. Playing Far Cry 2 all the way to completion's worse than an MMO where you work a virtual job in your spare time.
God forbid you actually ever get to your job to do some virtual work. In Far Cry 2 you get to commute in your spare time, endlessly. It's like being a sales rep, but instead of driving up and down the M1 you spend all your time driving around the sodding lake in the middle of the map.

The buses didnt change the fact a lot of missions still had long repetitious trips through the same boring check points and the same tshirt wearing enemies with super fast jeeps. yawn.

Oh, and you forgot to mention the part where you could unload an entire clip into a man wearing nothing but a T-shirt and he would just stand there and laugh at you!
