    So I am very far in the game, 96% complete to be exact. I am on my way to the last two objectives, stop in the save point inbetween the two. Walk inside, grab some ammo, go over to save... and when I hit enter, the watch doesn't come up. So I walk to the door. Door won't open. I save the game and exit, thinking it just needs to be restarted. Reload the game, no buttons work, other than movement. Can't open cases, doors, nothing.

    I even restarted steam and tried again. Zippo!! I am officially STUCK IN A DAMN BUILDING WITH 4% LEFT OF THE F'ING GAME! WWWWWWWWTTTTTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!
    :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Who want's to tell me what happens? Next closest save game is... oh at 16%...:cry::cry::cry:

    I stopped @ 28%, but I might be starting again soon. There's just been too many good games after Far Cry 2. Lol


    Why don't you check if you can download a Save File from somewhere?

    Word of advice: When saving, don't overwrite. If something goes wrong, you can load a save as far back as you need to go. At bare minimum, swap between two saves so if something goes wrong on one, you can fall back to the other. I recommend no less than three, however.


    I have 75 saves in The Witcher (one play through) and 568 saves in Oblivion (not quite done yet). It takes much less time to delete a bunch of no longer needed saves than to restart the game from the beginning.

    yes the game really is that bad, i dont know why they made it so deliberatly average
    its a 70% at the most with flashy graphics

    i just quit after being told to scout some place, i hated the feel of it everything was boring

    i couldnt get into it and a game is supposed to get you into it right away to make you want to play it

    i feel bad for you getting stuck but you should try a save file from the internet nad then backup regular have a few saves or try an autosave

    At first I couldn't get into it because of the skewed FOV when in widescreen, it gave me really bad headaches.

    Then once I'd fixed that and actually started playing I got pissed off with the constant crashing when you're nowhere near a save point "Go to point X" *45 minutes later* "Save point, yey" *crash* *game goes in bin*

    And what`s the bad news ? Well..the end`s pretty lame too ! You get the two different options to end the game but the endings are pretty similar..like in bioshock. The game leaves it open whether the player or the jackal will be back later or w/e

    I know your pain. Grand Tourismo 2 for PS2 did the same thing to me. While GT2 wasnt even comparable to the story in FC2 it was still annoying. I know you wanted to see the game end but it might just not be in the cards.

    You should just assume you completed it and watch an ending spoiler on Youtube. :ohwell:

    Bad news dude. I heard that a lot of people had issues with the game also. Never heard this one though.

    The honest to god only reason I kept playing was because driving around in the truck with the grenade launcher on top was awsome... as was the 50 caliber sniper rifle. I just loved f'ing people up with it. I might just have to watch the end on youtube. Where can I get a saved file on the web? I didn't even know you could do that


    P.S. - Thanks for all the condolences :toast:
