    Got it on the weekend. Nice game so far.

    I've been getting screen tearing occasionally though but haven't been getting that on any other 4k game so far i.e. Nioh or Uncharted 4.

    Something a bit odd so maybe the fps in this is all over the shop

    You all patched up jpw? Outlets praise the performance and I've certainly had no problems with it either. Frame rate has been bulletproof thus far.

    Last I checked I was at 16% completion. Still enjoying the game.

    I assume I am as I only downloaded via PSN on Saturday sometime and i've got autopatches etc in sleep mode. It's nothing major but it is a little annoying so far.

    Been getting it regardless of choosing graphics or framerate as the preference in settings

    Any games like this on PC?
    Wouldn't mind playing this, but not going to get a PS4 just for it..

    Probably something like the red dead redemption 2 coming later in the year. Its kind of hard to explain what this is close to as it is a combination of a lot of good titles.

    Its seriously like uncharted meets far cry meets GTA meets witcher 3 meets just cause.

    I'd say very similar to the new Tomb Raiders and Uncharted for sure :thumbup:

    I must admit I really wasn't expecting to actually have to care when going after a group of enemies, but even those shithead watcher things with lasers can be a task if you're an idiot lol.

    But sneaking up etc makes the lower level guys easy, though still need to care about accuracy :weirdo:

    Took the advice of someone here and went straight for Hard difficulty. It has been a nice challenging experience so far. Starting to get used to combat tactics, especially when fighting groups.

    My only niggles so far:
    Having to select into each storage upgrade craft to see if I have enough resources to do it :thumbdn: Should be highlighted red or green from the top screen.
    Initial loading time is quite lengthy and respawn loading time isn't quick either.

    Not much else to complain about. Loving it.

    I had a battle last night where after defeating a bunch I had alerted a couple of new enemies rolled up and ganged up on me. When it was all over I had one potion left, no ammo and a sliver of health left. Good times.

    The few times I've died from in this game I've either forgotten to heal while fighting or the more annoying platforming deaths. Fortunately platforming only seems to come into play for some of the collectable hunting ;)

    I finished this on Monday and loved every moment.

    Finished the main story after 32 hours gameplay, currently have 44 hours on the clock, just collecting stuff and finishing some side quests I didn't do.

    Only issue I have is item management, when you need to purchase stuff or sell bulk loads of things. Aside from that, loving the game.


    I'm farming them at the moment for mods, have about 42 on the kill counter so far :D
    There's somewhere on the map (not far from your encounter) where there are two of them together so makes farming pretty quick.

    Agreed. I wish there was a comparison window when buying new gear
