I picked this up for the PS3 (heresy!) and am quite enjoying it, apart from just researching and building stuff at random. Playing on Normal and it seems manageable so far, though I am only just past the interrogation part.

I am starting to feel a little uneasy though. I appear to be working for a bunch of fascists.

Cough! Splutter!!

I can't figure this out, it is all the game is remembered for and has taken on a life of its own; surely this was just a minor irritant though?

I agree. The ending(s) were lauded, though they weren't really very good - in the sense of, logically they didn't make much sense. You should watch them on YouTube. Great game though - hefty weapons, good gunplay, adult themes and the failed states of Africa encapsulated well.

The respawning checkpoints are sorted, once you wipe them out, that territory goes under your control and you can travel at will.

However the rest of the game appears to be about some dudebro getting high and whacking pantomime villains.
