I finally went out and rented this last night as I felt like some zombie killing. But soon found myself confused with their daft save system.. Confused Save/exit done me like a kipper twice before i worked out what was going on, mind you it does have its advantages ie being able to keep boosting your player stats.

Kinda cheating tho. Confused

But my main bug bare is the random lockups. Mad Shocked I can remember reading ages ago people having issues with this game but didn't think i'd have a problem.. Dohh.. Sure did and it was nothing to do with over heating thats for sure.

So I gave up on this game, took it back a day early, buggered if i'm going to sit there playing for an hour only for it to lockup and loose everything. I am really amazed that they have not released a patch to fix the lockups.. Slack.. Evil or Very Mad

I've played this game for at least 4 hours straight and haven't had a problem with lockups but I hear your pain on the way the saves work.

Never save and quit as this saves your player level but drops you back at the beginging of the game. if you want to save go to a save room, save then use the X button and go directly back to the dash or power off. I lost several hours of play time finding this out the hardway.

Yeah the saves do suck. But i'm not going to be playing it any more so they won't be bugging me. Razz

Hi guys,

I wasnt impressed with the gamesave features either.
I have a few achievement points from this game but it wasnt without heartache..

I lost a few of my saves too until i figured out there is only one (1) save slot etc etc... hahahha

Don't get me started on the freezing issues either lol..
Its not overheating.. I would say its more just bad programming.. lol
The game itself is nice but because of all these niggly issues i rarely switch it on.

Still good but it gets to you.

just my 2 cents.
