The Reg calls out crap, fan dislikes it
So every AAA title of the last ten years was a crashtastic turd on release. And people are supposed to drop £60 and put up with it? Maybe if more reviews pointed out how shitty the release-versions were, then companies would spend a bit of time making them playable. Maybe players realise how much they are having the piss taken out of them, and withhold their cash until they are playable.
And save me from the "if you haven't completed every game in the series three times then you can't comment" fans. Bought one. Played it for a few hours. Got bored. Stopped. Why would I waste any more money buying another one, especially when way too many of this series were just reskins with the same gameplay mechanics. Or ship-based stealth.
Did they ever fix the "long-goodbye" from the first one. I think it took over a minute to quit the game when you did get bored of playing it.
