Beautiful and lush, drops you in the deep end and tells you to swim, if you do it makes for a rewarding experience. FarCry2

The dart rifle + heavy grenade launcher are a fun combo. The dart rifle makes for good stealth snipes if you can isolate the enemy. FarCry2

The USAS-12 shotgun is the absolute MOST FUN shotgun I have ever tried in any game (even more cool than the LOD auto shotgun). FarCry2
