The game crashed maybe 6-7 times in my 55+ hours. But could be issue with my PC as sometimes it randomly restarts. I too delayed playing because of early news of bad port but found nothing of that sort.
Installed this week Far Cry - New Dawn and havent yet started playing but given the HD graphics pack, I'm already in love with the game..pink flowers, village fields etc. The game menu itself feels so lively and interactive.
