With two installs on separate machines, I'm having some issues. The second install went well, but it started me kind of in the middle of where I was- which was ok, but I didn't have the "upgrades" (wing suit and tether), and can't seem to find what's-her-name to get the upgrades. So I get killed often. May have to start over on that PC.

Fun? Yes.

Easy? Sometimes yes. Other times, not so much.

It's certainly more challenging than the last one but not in an off putting way. I'm kind of enjoying getting good with the wingsuit.

The challenges can be a bitch but I spent a bunch of time just flying around the map in it trying to keep it going for as long as possible. It just takes some practice.

Okay, so this is basically an example of how not to take down a base.

Don't get too bent about how a base looks when you first see it (it's going to look scary), the first thing you want to do is scope it out, and that can almost always be done from a helicopter from the last base you took, or from your parachute which makes you invisible to enemy troops for some reason (unless you shoot, then it's on). Don't try to fight your way in like this ^, and don't waste your time trying to fly in with your nice helicopter. Your helicopter is for looking, then set it down and walk away...

The absolute first thing on the menu is to hack the surface-to-air missile launchers. You don't even have to sneak up, just find the launcher-of-least-resistance, engage the 3 guys guarding it and hack it, then fight your way over to a second one. Once you have two launchers hacked there will be exactly zero enemy helicopters in the sky. Then either take an enemy helicopter and lay waste, or find an enemy tank and then you're set. Once you have a tank or a helicopter there should be very little drama while you lay the wood.

I've had ZERO luck with helicopters. I always hack all the SAMS and I'm still getting owned by ground fire within seconds. I've just been doing everything on the ground with the grapple and guns.

I practiced the wingsuit for a while today and then tried one of the challenges. Got 3 gears, so making a little progress. Much faster for getting around than the chute! The stall/backflip is pretty fun.

Once you master the wingsuit (which I have really not, yet), this game is going to get crazy fun. It's my favorite addition to the game so far.
