Awesome, awesome game.

Granted I'm only about 4 hours in, but it's very much keeping me engrossed. (Saves at camp fire.. Ah I'll get to the next one and then shut down...... Cue 5 camp fires later.)

Refreshing reboot to the series.

I've been meaning to give this a shot. How does it play? is it challenging and immersive?

I bought the game ~6 months ago, played for a few minutes, didn't like it, and put it away. Out of boredom I tried it again a week ago, and something clicked; I haven't been able to stop playing since.

The graphics and sound design are stellar. Controls are fairly tight, and gameplay is definitely immersive.

I enjoy the collectibles, hunting animals, leveling up skills with XP and weapons with found salvage. Nothing beats scoring headshots with the bow, and that weapon's mechanic is wonderfully implemented.

I am so glad that I gave this game another shot, and can't wait for the next one.

Same for me, I bought it at launch and got too involved in trying to find all the artifacts and whatnot around the first campfire and got bored quickly and thought the game was meh.... I only returned to it this week. Wow! I am loving it!

It is a good balance of stealth, action, exploration, collecting items and sweaty palm intensity!!

I agree with everything this guy just said. Hopefully they cut out the multiplayer and lengthen the campaign for the next one. Oh, and have enemies actually respawn after you beat the game

Immersive, definitely.

Challenging? Depends. If you play smart then you can clear the enemies without really taking much damage. If you don't think and just rush in then you can get messed up pretty quickly.

Just got to the point of no return to I'm fast travelling back to different areas to pick up some missed items / challenges now.

Man this game is AMAZING. I'm playing on the PC version, I bought it on Steam like ages ago, maybe about 5 months ago, or more, can't really remember, haven't got the time to play. I installed the game yesterday and my God how amazing this game is.

Completed 100% last night. Awesome game. Well worth the money.

Just going through tidying up some single player achievements (Counters, zip-line kills and about 500 more salvage for last upgrade).

Gonna try MP next.
