    No, the game is fine. I have not experienced a single game breaking bug yet, after more than 40 hours of play. That’s on the Xbox, which still lacks the patch. I back up my saves (a good idea with any game) but I haven’t had to restore a backup yet.

    I’m happy to see all those fixes are almost here.

    Glad I waited to buy this game. Why can’t devs release a bug free product for once. I’m gonna have a hella update though when I put it in my PS3 :(

    ^I’m not sure if you’re trolling, or if you’re actually being serious. Well done!

    Whats with the trolls?

    This game was simply amazing and I picked it up on day 1 of release for PC. Haven’t had an experience like that in a longggg time. Even if there is no “re-playability” in the story it was worth every penny. I didn’t have any major issues through my many hours of play.

    I haven’t experienced any problems with it myself now but, that’s a long list of bugs. How did I manage to dodge them all…
