There are problems, like "2) Once you liberate the bases the island seems empty. No more random pirate encounters and almost everyone you run into is a friendly.". I normally do games mid difficulty "as intended to be played", but I realized after the mission where I fly to the second island that not only was normal too easy but hell it also had auto-aim (I never noticed this before, as most kills were from afar). I've now set difficulty to hard and turned auto-aim off (this on the 360). I've had good luck with sniping animals' cages. I do find it annoying how the AI seems generally quite stupid, with no peripheral vision, and yet if I take out an alarm box from somewhere they seem magically to know where the shot came from immediately (even though silenced). There are lots of problems with the game. In the end, though, it's excellent so far (opened up second island 2 hours of play ago). I only notice the problems because I've spent an embarrassing amount of time on it in the last 4 days.
