I see everyone seem to have gone on to "Termination". But Anyone else tried the other route as well ?

I tried both.

It's interesting. You can even choose a third alternative, sort of...

Yup, I've tried it. Strange so many people went with killing Reynolds, there was no doubt in my mind that what he was telling me in the cutscene was what we wanted to avoid. :P

Yes, Reynolds is obviously a prick, but when you think of it, isn't this for a "greater good"... World peace.

My first choice: stay with Reynolds ;-)

I have completed "Termination" and "Deception," while fooled around with "Deception" for a bit, finding there could be two possible ways to end this mission. Does anyone think there could be a third way to end "Deception?" Since:

Hmm...I also got curious as to whether there's a third ending, so with a little help I managed to shoot down the PMC helo and apache, destroyed the M1A1 and three APCs but didn't get to save Asano. And then nothing happened.

So since the SUV was intact I drove to the Villa and killed every one of those PMCs and still nothing happened. I conclude that this is not how the mission was designed for :P You're destined to die!

Ok, so the bad ending to PMC is canon according to the Armaverse Timeline, but this makes Brian Frost such a jerk. He was a good guy in BAF, but then sides with Reynolds and kills off Dixon and the UN inspectors? Why did BIS chose to go with this ending? It seems terribly cynical and pessimistic to me. I suppose it does explain why Frost is such a prick in TOH.

Yeah, Reynolds rant seems a little crazy and he is clearly the bad guy by this mission. I guess I'm just not a fan of BIS' decision to have you murder innocents as the official way to go. At least it is a bold and unusual direction for the series. On another note, did we ever learn why the other PMC group, Talon, attacks ION?

BIS went out of their way to make Reynolds look like a bad guy. He is dressed entirely in black. He has black eyes. He has a scar down his face. The trailer was pretty focused on making him seem malevolent.

Call me crazy, but when he started ranting about how knowledge of Takistan's nuclear program would end the world, I was a little reluctant to just take his word for it.

EDIT: just realised this thread was dug up. Oh well.
