The best part is, most companies don't even call them "bugs" anymore, because that implies something that is definitely wrong with their product and often they have no intention of fixing it. More usually they are called "concerns", or "issues". Welcome to art as a commodity.
It's either this or not enough testing, i.e. the testing was conducted at a basic level or not for long enough, hence the save corruption at 50%+ in SP was not picked up before release. Whatever the reason, it is staggeringly poor and the number of bugs in Far Cry 2 mean that I, and no doubt many others, will not go anywhere near Far Cry 3.

And there are no mutants in the game either. What's with that?
