    I'd have thought this was a meme if it wasn't on their official twitter :D

    Good that they've acknowledged it publicly and offered refunds.

    Forgive me for taking this with a pinch of salt though - especially the timeline, after having already being burnt once. Roll on February (202x).

    I think I'll sit on this one for a month or two now, I was excited for it but if I pour hours into it at this point I'm just going to be playing the worst version of the game. Plenty of stuff to tide me over in the meantime, plus Hitman 3 January.

    The worst part of it is if they put in even a semi-decent AI for each of the civilians and vehicles it's going to hit performance even harder, so not only will they need to find the performance they're lacking currently but if they improve the AI to anything respectable they're going to need to find a lot more on top of that.

    Yep, if the PS4 and Xbox aren't cut out for it then why release it (exclusively) on those platforms? it's greed pure and simple as they have the biggest user base. If they had any conscience they would have delayed it further, targetted PS5/XSX and worked on what needs fixing/improving in the mean time.

    I think most people still praising it at this point are those who are financially invested, I just feel sorry for those who bought the £250 collectors editions - £10 of toys, a few books and an undercooked game.

    Been playing since the day before on the One X and I don't have a single problem with it, ok it crashed completely once, but it isn't the only game to have done this and a couple of graphical glitches, again nothing new in any game really. Used to seeing items pop up on the screen as it redraws it. Agree it needs polishing but it isn't that far away.

    The gameplay is excellent, the graphics do look great. My only annoyance was during a load of cut scenes before Act 1 where it all goes wrong, it spent 10 seconds loading a cut scene that lasted for 5 seconds, and did this for what seemed like ages.

    I have not progressed the story much at all, just been going around fighting crime. :D Seem to get quite a bit of loot from it, been disassembling all the guns and gear I dont use then crafting bits and upgrading to level that up. :)

    Still fairly low level so some of the fights have been quite tough, especially when they start hacking me and had to fight some bullet dodging ninjas!


    Has anyone plugged in a keyboard and mouse?

    Just requested a refund. It just runs like **** **** on my one x tbh, keeps freezing when driving and textures not loading properly. I’ll just wait until I pick up a series x at some point, next gen upgrade should be out by the time you can buy one :p:D

    I had one with enemies walking through a metal shutter to shoot me. I was enjoying the story but I think this needed another few months of development tbh. When it’s fully patched I reckon it will be a great game.

    Got a semi auto rifle last night - I think it’s a rail gun sort of thing. Proper powerful (kills in two/three shots) and uses regular rifle ammo so rarely ever run out.

    Finally managed to play it on my One X - played about an hour so far. I certainly didn't notice any graphics issues with it on the One X. Looks quite nice. Can tell it is running at fairly low resolution but still fine. Will tide me over until I can get a Series X. As I take so long to complete these types of games (still playing Witcher 3) due to limited gaming time, I am fine with performance improving over time. I think people get a bit over excited with game bugs. There are few games that launch in a perfect state (just look at the Elder Scrolls series) - the only ones for me that seem to be flawless from day one are Nintendo 1st party major releases.

    Have they announced a switch version, sure it would be epic.

    ?

    It runs like dog doo on base consoles as it is, let alone a switch version. That’d be asking for trouble.

    Get a decent Samurai sword and unlock the perks and you are pretty much unbeatable. You can just run in and hack of limbs before anyone reacts. I had one who had both his arms cut off still stood there with his gun floating in front of him......

    Exactly how I feel about the game too, graphic quality and glitches aside (which there is a lot of) the gameplay and mechanics are below par.

    At the moment the progression is annoying me, either I'm doing it wrong or its a bug but some missions don't display waypoints so I don't have got a clue where to go. Then there is the dull and lifeless gunplay, there isn't any feeling of connection or damage when the bullets hit. Also why does it take a full clip from a sub machine to take down an useless enemy?

    All missions so far have been run and gun with hacking only serving the purpose to stop others from hacking you to cause you to annoyingly overheat. But with all that said, I'm still finding enjoyment from it and just taking it for what it is, a very overhyped game that comically under delivers in most aspects.
