Yes, but recommended to play with a controller as it's that sort of game. I just finished a mammoth (heh) PC build with a 3070 and benchmarked it at 110fps average without V-Sync and it ran and looked gorgeous. Before that I was playing off an Alienware 17" Gaming Laptop with a 2080 at 1080p and it still ran an d looked fine. It's probably still the best-looking game across console and PC if you've got the right gear.

It's just a slow-to-play game, if you haven't jumped in before. So be prepared for it to progress slowly

Ran like ass on my system, so I refunded it pretty quickly.

My GTX1080 and i5 7600k apparently aren't good enough to keep a stable 60fps even on the lowest gfx settings @ 1080p =\

In reality, it was probably just an issue with my specific rig and perhaps something installed or whatever, but I didn't enjoy it enough to bother trying 100 fixes for crappy framerate.

Thanks. Not that keen on the cowboy theme. Not getting a controller. I think I'll leave it as "A game to get if we get a new console".

If you're not into the Western genre it's probably one to miss even then. The game is a beautifully crafted thing but the very deliberate pacing put off a lot of people I know who even enjoyed the first Red Dead Redemption. If you enjoy the genre though it will immerse you in the way that only a game with the same budget as some small-to-medium sized nations can.
