In other words, more of the same but more of it, and if you liked the last one, you'll like this too?

Oh, one more thing I'm liking about JC 4's progression: you can now undertake or trigger a majority of the missions throughout Solis pretty much anytime you want. Some are obviously still scripted to only appear after certain plot events or player progression, but many of them now have a more natural flow. The other exception to this rule are the three major weather control facilities you need to destroy before tackling Project Illapa (the endgame fortress) itself, but even that's kinda semi-open since those prior missions require you to collect certain items, vehicles and/or tech, or destroy key parts of the enemy infrastructure to successfully accomplish the mission.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

So I'm blitzing through JC 3 and loving it now I have the hang of the wing suit. Hate the trials, natch. The rest of it is just good fun - Far Cry without the weird moralising a Kafkaesque / Lynchian weirdness.

A few of the reviews for JC 4 are they've basically just done JC 3 with shinier toys. Stripped the JC 2 stuff further. So, no C4?

And apparently a lot of UI complaints as well. Steam is showing Negative right now. [up] Worth picking up or waiting for a sale? I watched the vid and whilst I usually trust the guy, RPS railed on it and a few of the other sites are lukewarm.

Eh, I'll wait for a price drop and more DLC to buy it. I'm not in a hurry with games at the moment.
