Is FarCry 3 good on the PC?

I would assume it is, but we all know the curse of bad ports >_>.

Thinking of picking up considering it being 75% off.

Have you played it yet?

If not, get it.

It is superior to the console versions, but I'm one of those people who would say not to buy it if you already have it on console (with most any game).

Its SO much better on pc if you have the hardware. Played the ps3 version at a friends and while not normally a graphics whore, having played it on pc near maxed out at 45+ fps then going to that made me feel bad.

It's not a bad port
If anything, it's a bad PC port to consoles. It looks and runs like crap. But it looks and runs good on PC.

And it's really fun.

Had a fantastic time with it on PC, flawless experience technically. Go for it.

Runs great, but the game itself gets very repetitive IMO.

Base game for $7.50 is worth it if your PC can run it well.

Definitely recommend installing Ziggy's mod. Fixes a lot of issues that people had with the base game itself (Difficulty curve, crafting recipes, weapon modifications, etc.). I believe Ziggy's forces the game to run in DX11 IIRC so keep that in mind.

FC3 is my favorite FPS in a very long time. It lost a few neat touches FC2 had but its a way better and prettier game overall.
