The moment I started playing this game I was stunned with the visuals. The island featured in this game is incredible! The water effects are stunning. When you swim you can look up through the water and it looks very realistic. You'll find various underwater plant life in different parts of the island.
The game play is just as good as the design. Although there arn't many weapons you can tell alot of time and effort have been put into the ones you will find. The control layout is new and works very well. For instance press right on the d-pad and you'll draw your pistol...press again and you'll dual wield (pistol in each hand) same for automatic weapons.
Theres two ways of playing this game 1.Stealthy 2.Kill everything in sight.
When playing stealthily you can use the foliage to hide, ambush, set traps or stalk your enemy. When playing all guns blazing you'll find the enviroments provide plenty of cover and is very interactive.
Later on in the game you'll begin to get your feral insticts. basically these are the natural skills humans supposedly lost thousands of years ago. You'll begin to be able to pick up on the scent of creatures and blood. You'll be faster, stronger and see better. You'll also have a very usefull attack...
All in all personally I would say this game is definatly worth buying.
Best bits: Gameplay, Visuals, Cut Scenes, Detail.
Worst Bits: Maps are more linear than I expected.
