The setting is beautiful.
3 or 5 day rental? In fairness, the game could shine in that period, you won't have long to get sick of it.
Plus you don't have my Far Cry 2 baggage, so you can enjoy it for what it is, but I stand by my opinion that it is a terrible game.

The actual gameplay, though incredibly well executed, isn't great, but the whole package is really good. Perhaps if you like stealth, it's an amazing game.
For me it picked up big-time when I got the shotgun. Fuck you, Stealth!
