    The hunting seems to be a bit random, sometimes the animal goes straight for you, other times it runs off and is a easy kill. Not sure if sneaking makes much of a difference. You usually get them though, most annoying is when you can never find the animal you are looking for. Maybe try that potion that makes animals avoid you.

    @kubson84 the framerate does seem to struggle on xbox (+I have it installed to hd), so if you're particularly adverse to it, you may be disappointed. But I'm ok with it considering the amount of stuff going on. If you needed an excuse to get a new pc, this is probably it :)

    One thing my pc always seems to struggle with is shadows and this is no different. Even on ultra some just look wrong, same with sleeping dogs. Otherwise it's lovely looking and really enjoying it.

    Runs fine on my GTX260 on high settings so far. From playing the opening to taking my first outpost, I think this is gonna be an awesome game :)

    I'm getting a solid 60fps but it is a bit jittery when panning around using a gamepad. I've tried every form of vsync I know but nothing improves the jitter. It has to be a smooth 60fps or nothing for me so this is being shelved until a solution is found.

    So before I start playing this after the initial "new toy!" Novelty of the wiiu wears off, what's the overall opinion? Must play asap, or start "properly" playing zombiu or new mario?

    This game is just fantastically awesome! I had just finished clearing an enemy camp when I hear a commotion so I walked up the hill and there were 2 Cassowary birds kicking the shit out of 3 pirates. I then decided to walk back into the camp on my way to the river to try and pinch a boat, then crapped myself as a Tiger jumped out of the bushes and mauled Jason.

    Next I decide to climb a mountain and just reached the bottom and a road on the other side when a Bear walks onto the road at exactly the same time, rears up and decides to charge. Three assault rifle rounds to the brain dealt with him/her.

    Then I got to the river back on the other side of the mountain and took my camera out to look at 4 deer just minding their own business by the riverside when a bloody Crocodile jumps up and eats one of the deer. I go and take a closer look and also to skin the deer when the Croc decides it wants to wrestle me. A few stabs later and it's lying dead in the shallows.

    Wow! This game is great!

    Once you start this you'll not put the controler down. ;-)

    Still pissed off about those bloody hints that keep popping up. Been playing for a few hours and had my 3rd message about how to fast travel pop up

    Just attacked a camp in main story, snuck in planted the bomb. Explosion killed a few guards. Then more guards turn up about 8 altogether. Im Hiding in a bush planning my next move then a tiger starts running through the camp and kills 5 of them:)

    Ok. I have the game on 360 now.

    I am really sensitive to screen tear and I have been pestering other folks for updates about it, so I figured I ought to give my opinion.

    It's really pretty bad. Frame rate isn't great either. That's the bad news.

    Plus side is that both the frame-rate issues and the tearing seem to be pretty consistent (basically constant) so you kind of adjust to them in a way where games that have sudden occasional big screen tears or sudden framerate drops you don't.

    Aside from this technical stuff, the game itself is shaping up to be fricking awesome. So I guess we just got accept the technical limitations of our machines and pile on in there.

    ps switching to 720 resolution does not seem to make any difference.

    I've dumped DX11 as it's such a resource hog. On my 570 I was getting 40fps which may seem fine but having seen 60fps via DirectX 9 and really not noticing much of a difference visually - still gorgeous.

    And @welshben23

    Good to know! Not as buggy as the demo I played at the expo then? No teleporting npcs, hideous screen tear, slowdown, weird clipping and collision detection and things and people spawning in mid air right in front of you all in just five minutes of play?

    If so fantastic! If it's one of those "it's great to play despite all the bugs" then I'll give it a miss for a bit longer after being burned seriously by Skyrim.

    There is a couple of fixes in there i have not had time to test yet, but
    hopefully it will be fixed in the next patch anyway.

    @RelaxedMikki I'd agree with your summary on the 360's performance. But, as you pointed out the game is so fricking great it's worth overlooking it and hope they can improve it by patches going forward, perhaps?

    Interesting asides - This evening I walked to the off-license for a couple bottles of wine and came across a fox. Guess what was the first thing that crossed my mind? :)

    Shooting a shark with an explosive arrow.

    Pointless? Probably. Entertaining? Definitely.

    I think it may be love.

    Ghosting round camps with a silenced sniper rifle is delightful. Not as much fun as having spent fifteen minutes planning my approach and then the split second I go to pull the the trigger a pack of rabid dogs burst in to the camp and mauled everyone.

    No alarm bonus too :)
