It is a great game, but no game should be allowed to be released with this amount of bugs, surely they have people they pay to sort this kinda thing out so it's not in the final product?

This is effectively whats killing companies off. Only thing is Ubisoft and EA (the biggest culprits) are the ones thriving by releasing half hashed titles

Also I just noticed last night that the DLC for the Expeditions Edition and the Monkey Business DLC in the Insane edition, is now available. As for the bugs, at least games can be patched now. This has been happening since the 80s. Jet Set Willy was released with the ending bugged, and you could not complete the game without cheating, and there was no way for it to get patched

It's no Batttlefield 3, but the amount of problems I had with mp when I had it was mental.

I had many problems with the co-op missions, which are a bit rubbish anyway... So decided to just finish the first level then leave it at that.

Nice to hear it's getting patched, although i'm 20 hours in and haven't had any so far. I wish Bethesda would take note and patch Skyrim on the PS3 as that game is full of gamebreaking bugs.

Its better they have something fixed then it forever be broken. Don t get the fuss about Farcry 3. Its ok but no idea why everyone has had a massive gamegasm over it.

I was lucky enough to play it through without coming across any major glitches, i got stuck in a rock once but that was it. Just had to reload my save and it was all fixed.

I lost all patience with this game. I had just reached the lower island part of the game, met Sam and then my screen froze. When i loaded up Far cry my save was corrupted and it wanted me to start again. So traded it in instantly after that.

The only bug I came across was one time when I went to help Keith the guy was floating off a rock, but I just had to kill myself and I was sorted. Game's fantastic, just need to do co-op and a few things to 100% it.

The thing is are these issues console specific as well for games like FarCry. Another game was Silent Hill HD Collection, which was fixed on the PS3 but not on the XBox. It was like they didnt even bother on the 360 to do anything with it. Which is incredibly poor considering those games were 12 years old anyway! The other way round, Skyrim isnt bad but does have gaping bugs on the PS3. On the 360 its fine, but after a certain level the PS3 one turns into a complete and utter mess.

My skyrim save corrupted when i was 83 hours in on the Xbox, that's not fine lol. And i also had the other problems such as the upside down flying dragon.
