I accidentally bought it last night with the Steam Android app, I thought there'd be more button pushes before the sale was confirmed. Oh well, sounds like it's not a bad old game anyway, so it was hardly a waste.

Think that this is my game of the year, playing on PS3 as my PC review code haunt arrived yet. I'm shocked by how well it looks and plays on console. The fire effects in particular are superb, nothing more fun than taking the flame thrower and starting a fire that spreads to engulf an entire enemy force.

My save game stays I've played 7 hours though I reckon I've put in at elast 13 hours since friday and yet I'm only on chapter 3. Been a long time since I've played an open world game where I found exploring to be so rewarding, I gave up on Skyrim after 15 as it was so dull and banal whereas I can see myself putting another 20-30 hours into this. Heading out with the boq and hunting animals is a hell of a lot of fun and shows how a simple idea implemented well can be rewarding and fun while adding hours to a game.

What impressed me most thus far is how cinematic and emotional the story is. The use of music in particular is inspired, really adds to the overall feel of the game and I can't wait to see how it all plays out.

He gets much better fps at those settings than a 7970 and even gtx 670 sli, I'm still trying to figure out how!

I think there is a bug where it shows up as running in dx11 even if you run the farcry3.exe and not the farcry3_d3d11.exe

You need to run farcry3_d3d11 to be sure you are running dx11

I just tested there with a gtx 570 60 fps running farcry3.exe
20 fps running farcry3_d3d11.exe

Dcully are you running farcry3_d3d11.exe?

I'm getting steady 70 fps with my stock 3570k and gtx 670, with the same settings as DCully.
However, I do notice weird shadows flickering in the water (when I look at it from a distance) when I move. Other than that it's perfect.

Great game. Only beef I have is that I find it a bit easy, even on hard difficulty.
The only real challenge is when I'm up against a tiger and I unload an mp5 clip into its head and it doesn't die
AI seems retarded as well. If you have a bit of patience they pretty much just come at you 1 by 1.

It does not matter if it says directx 11 in the menu

I tried it ended up just firing all the fire arrows away to get back the normal ones.

EDIT: I just finished what could possibly be the best level of a game i have ever played. This game rocks.

Looting a body is the only thing I don't like from this game.

Too many times their guns are beside them and you end up going in a loop of throwing weapons repeatedly while you try to be pixel-perfect to check their corpses.

Anyways, the flamethrower is great. I carry it around only to scare animals away from me. A quick burst and you'll have the tigers and komodo dragons running away in fear

It's also bloody satisfying shooting the molotov in an enemy's hand and watching it engulf him as he runs around in circles screaming!

I've pumped in a good amount of time since it's release and I'm not even halfway through this game, I especially haven't gotten bored of it yet.
