Rico Rodriguez is looking to start another revolution and he's not using the
usual diplomatic channels. This time it's the fictional south pacific island of
Panau that needs liberating, both from the dictator Baby Panay and Rico's
ex-boss Tom Sheldon.
A mix of Grand Theft Auto and Mercenaries, once you're parachuted onto Panau
it's up to you how you complete your mission or whether you just set off
exploring. However you play your most important piece of equipment is the new
dual-grappling hook, which lets you latch onto enemies and vehicles and then
attach them to something else.
Watching a soldier shoot into the air when you snag him onto a plane or pulling
the wheels off a car when you tether it to the ground is just the start, as you
learn to use your refolding parachute to slingshot yourself around the island.
Political change has never been this much fun. Key Features
Viva le revolution: Help your lone revolutionary to liberate an entire
island from an evil dictator, although how much is left of it when you're
done is up to you.
New hook: Get to grips with the new grappling hook and parachute
combo to attach yourself or your enemies to moving vehicles and create the
most dangerous stunts in gaming.
Transport tycoon: Take control of more than 100 different vehicles
- from speedboats to jeeps, tanks and even the new Boeing 737 as you journey
Even opponent: All-new artificial intelligence makes every mission
different, with enemies that plan ahead and co-operate and an adaptive
difficulty system that adjusts to your ability.
Treasure island: 100 square miles of tropical paradise are yours
to explore (and blow up) with climates ranging from snow-capped mountains to
sandy beaches and dense cities.
