I have to say the game is pretty interesting at first,
with a decent story and friends, and crappy guns that blow up in your hands.
But, once you have played it for a while it quickly gets repetitive.
Drive a car through a small outpost, instantly have Africans shooting at you and chasing you with vehicles, stop the vehicle, get out, shoot with RPG, continue.
Repeat as needed, because every time you drive through the enemies will respawn.
Moving through the jungle severely needs some improvement, but the weapons are fun to shoot and maintain. It's not every day a game falls into your lap with every popular commie-bloc gun that blows up in your hands after 2 mags. Some interesting varietes, like suppressed Makarovs make it decently fun.
Not to mention stealing the African king's gold ;)
I would give it a 3.5 out of 5.
