I didn't say its the good per se. But games often launch with problems (especially on PC) and big updates are better than staying buggy.

To me that is a minor issue. As of right now, it looks and plays better than the X1 version with solid specs. Bottom line, in its current state its better than not having the game at all. Its playable now and people are enjoying it on PC.
