    A lot of the info is real though. The Chaos Parachute comes with the game if you buy it at Target.

    I just want to point out that cars explode when you jump, parachute away even in minor collisions. I think this is simply because it is a cool moment for something to explode.

    Driving a semi, you parachute away and you have a head-on with a motorcycle? BOOM!

    Oh ya....

    I love how the deadliest thing that Rico can do to a vehicle is jump out of it.

    I also noticed that every vehicle explodes from a sneeze when you detach. I was going around in a military base looking for crates. I found one and jumped out of my car, which was at the time going about 5mph and was totally undamaged, in front of a wall. And the car blew up and killed me.

    Welp, I finally bought the full game. And the opening mission where you ride on top of a car? Well, I'm dying over and over because I do stupid things like hold a grenade too long or detonate some C4 while I'm still standing on top of it.

    I am going to die so much due to self-inflicted explosions during this game.

    A quick bit of calculating, for upgrade parts:

    Basically, don't worry about running out of upgrades. Spend, spend, spend!

    The way I ended up doing that sequence (My favorite method.) was to continually tether the cars to the sides of the road so they'd go flipping into other vehicles or maybe flip off the side if it's a bridge. As much as I love blowing shit up the Bolo patch made me realize that I really want to just rope shit together in creative and destructive ways.

    I'm having a bunch of trouble with the faction mission "Political Debate."

    It's impossible to get that limo down the hill without crashing it! And then the guy I'm escorting only gets out and follows me sometimes.

    So many goddamn guys constantly shooting me uauhuahguhhughrhgh

    How to Finish a Mission Checklist:

    A). Can it be blown up?
    B). Can it be flown up?
    C). Can it be flown and then blown up?

    Is it just me or do most of the cars seem to drive like they're on ice when they go off-road, which is even worse when there's trees everywhere?

    It's almost painful when my friends come over and play this game. They play it like Grand Theft Auto; they never use the grappling hook or chute and use running and cars to get around. Even after I say "Here, let me play for a few minutes" and show them how to get around at high speed, they never even try it.

    I beat that faction mission on my first try after coming back to the game! I didn't even let my helicopter exploding discourage me and I used the limo for the entire thing.

    When I play with my friends we all know exactly how to have fun:

    1. Spawn a 6-star jet in an inappropriate location.
    2. Take off (or try to).
    3. If you take off successfully, fly as low as possible above the ground.
    4. Jump out of your seat in shock as the jet suddenly explodes and makes an incredibly loud noise.

    I've actually taken to driving places on the other side of the map lately. Following the road GPS the whole way, albiet at highly unsafe speeds. With the added self imposed restriction of staying in a car until it's no longer drivable.

    The damage model for cars is pretty extensive. I've crumpled my wheel into the car and had it constantly turn to one side, and the number of clanking, scraping and other "That can't be a good sign" sound effects are brilliant.

    I had this weird glitch last night. Where i jumped off a bridge and then grappled to car, but as I was driving down the rest of the mountain it thought i was still falling and the fall height meter on the left kept counting up. Weird.

    Yeah, the last few times I've played were spent driving/flying around, just checking out everything. It's great to be able to genuinely explore a game's world; San Andreas was the last one I played where I did things like that.

    I think GTA IV spoilt me when it comes to vehicle damage models, though. I wasn't all that impressed with the damage in this game, since all I've managed to do is get the front kinda dented in and the textures scratched up.

    As someone who's STILL trying to get the 30 sec low flying achievement... I can attest to how awesome it is everytime you plow into the ground and everyone in the room jumps.

    Speaking of which... anyone got any good tips on getting that achievement? I've found that if your landing gear is out... it doesnt seem to count. So slowing down doesn't seem to help. Roads have light poles and such I keep running into. Water can be a challenge as it appears to only count if the water is shallow. I've been trying to do it in that $30k explosive entrance making rent a jet you get from the black market, is there maybe a better plane to do it with?

    I remember low flying for quite a bit in the demo using the propeller plane; maybe that might be a better choice? It'd go a LOT slower than the jet, so you could theoretically cover less distance over more time, which would make it easier.

    That and fly to the demo area (the desert in the lower left), since there's quite a large amount of wide open space. Slow flying + wide open space = success, maybe.

    I did it over the beach in the very southwestern part of the islands, and thought it was so easy I went to 70ish seconds. Which brings me to ask: why does my stats screen show that my longest low-flyer was 5 seconds, and my longest perfect kill streak is 1, when I have the achievements for each?

    So I did the Panau World Tour '10 on a boat last night.

    Definitely takes a while but if you follow the rivers and everything you find a bunch of gas stations, 1 off hidden resource items, etc. The scenery was damn nice too.

    It took me one try and 2 minutes to get the low flier achievement. Just skimmed the shallow seas near Karl's home and voilá.
    the prop plane is perfect for that.

    So how is this on the PC? I played the demo for about 15 minutes, then got sucked back in to BC2...and I didn't really "get it" in that 15 minutes, aside from okay, it's a sandbox game, and uhh, it's in South America fantasy land. And I have a grappling hook.

    The demo just sort of plops you down in the middle of a desert and says "okay, go!".

    Because you didn't save your game afterwards.

    For people having trouble with the low-flyer achievement, you can do it very easily along rivers.

    How do the three versions - PC, Xbox360, PS3 - compare? I know my PC would run the game okay, but I haven't upgraded to the full version of Win7 (yet). I know that in direct comparisons PS3 versions usually look worse than the other two, but what about this case?
