I like the visuals of this game and the gameplay isn't half bad either but I am finding this thing very buggy. Hell, I can't even complete kill missions because it fails when I kill them with a knife...even though that's the requirement, doesn't matter if I do it stealthy or run up and sink it into the chest.
A lot of people are having FPS issues, here is a guide on how you can fix that.
Showcasing those effect differences on the video above doesn't make sense during night time in game, as the game looks pretty bad on night time even with maxed out settings @ DX11. Daytime would have so much more sense, it's when all the effects are on.
Interesting ways to die in this game. I can survive a crocodile attack easily but then I get crushed by my own boat when I was pushing it back to the water. Then unnecessary jumping (and while running) is an efficient way to loose HP. This is clearly not an FPS if you are used to jump around all the time. Actually the players character is pretty nicely modeled (is has a feeling it's there), although arms and palms look a bit off sometimes.
im still no where in this game on the story, just been exploring and killing pirates. and driving on this game is really fun.
but one thing that did annoy me a few days ago, you cannot set C4 onto vehicles, i had a master plan all set up, but when you throw C4 at a vehicle it just hit its and rolles off and does a lot of damage to the car

ive not had that bug, but a simmilar thing happened to me. i was on one of the missions to kill someone with a knife, but as i get there i hear a tiger roaring, then it came up saying i had failed. i guess the tiger killed him before i even got there :P
And I left a landmine outside of a base to blow up an enemy vehicle just for kicks and as I sneak into the base I heard the explosion and the pirates in the base ignore the explosion and charge right at me hiding in the bushes lol. That was one occurrence though, other times they do run at the explosion. Funny setting up mines around the mine on the road so people running to it blow up too.
i do the same when assaulting bases, its really annoying when the guards run right too you.
i found a really effective way of assaulting a camp earlier, find a jeep with a mounted gun on the back, drive right into middle of the camp and jump on the gun.
took it over in like 10seconds.
I fought my first heavy armored guy...took 4 arrows I think, not very heavy. At least it wasn't 1.
the armored guys are annoying, i use to try and do the camps sneaky with a silenced sniper, but those armored guys ruin that plan. and the beast cage thing sometimes works, but a lot of the time if the cage is too close to the exit, it just runs out of the camp. happened to me twice now.
Shoot the alarm with a silenced weapon. It's incredibly easy.
