Gloria, its not a broken game. There were a few bugs here and there, but nothing major. I hit the 1000g before the original patch, so probably put in at least 30 hrs, and apart from the odd graphical glitch, never encountered anything major.

Nowhere near as bad as people are making it out to be,

Isn't surprising anymore to see patches being released for Ubisoft titles. They really need to do some patching for Liberation as I experience a lot of graphical glitches, bugs and framerate issues
