Glad I wasn't the only one that noticed the slow motion feel that occasionally nagged me in DX11 mode (which was 100% the way I played it). I thought maybe I had the graphics up a little too high, so one down and it still did that. Good to know it wasn't just my rig (2600K OC'd and a 6850 I thought was enough!). I came down to the conclusion it was because the game was engineered to take advantage of nVidia tech. Unfortunatley I'm diehard ATI just because of the problems in the past with nVidia cards. Their drivers are lacking at best from my experience. Glad to know it wasn't just me...

My goodness! Such a wonderful game all things aside! Best $25 I have spent in a long time. Still playing through getting the trophies and such but this game is so worth the time spent to play it. Voice casting is so perfect, it takes me back to the series. And they did fit almost everybody in there.

The biggest problem with this game is that navigating indoor areas is a PITA. For some reason, your compass disappears when you walk into a building. This is frustrating because, like the first game, every building has about four different entrances and exits although only one is "accessible" at any given time. I find myself having to repeatedly navigate menus to get to a map and staring at a tiny triangle trying to figure out which way I'm facing in order to form vague relative directional cues.

The combat is great, the story is great, the boss fights are great. The bulk of the time, however, is spent between these moments and it just isn't much fun.

Another time machine post. Didn't this game come out months ago?

That's because the review just barely appeared in the magazine. Obviously it was held back because of that.

On another note, I've barely touched this game because I haven't finished enjoying Skyrim yet. If only it came out in Oct for the PC like it was supposed to.

I've been in a waterfall effect since BF3 and I've yet to really get into all the great games that came out. I made it to rank 29 in BF3 when Skyrim came out. I have about 120 hours into that but have not finished it. Then I moved to SWTOR and have been playing that since. ME3 comes out in March so I got some serious catching up to do!

How about 'erases your savegames randomly' as a big, fat 'George Clooney?' My 70% save recently got 'corrupted,' and after a quick search, it seems I am far from the only one (although it seems more common on the xBox). Major pain in the ass, since I don't want to start again, but really want to play the game.

Chances are that you're signing in with a different GFWL profile. I know it sucks that I can't share saves between my online and offline profiles. GFWL digitally signs the saves so that they may only be used by the player that created them. Any GFWL game being sold on Steam should carry a massive disclaimer - "Steam Cloud will not work, Steam Achievements will only work if you login to GFWL first, etc." It is despicable that you're forced to link your Steam and GFWL accounts to play this game.

What GFWL profile would I have signed into? I only have one (which is one too many)

No, this has been happening to a large number of people. Somehow, it seems that the game randomly loses a save.

Also, I have a non-Steam copy (was cheaper.)
