It is honestly sad that with a game like this along with so many others that are littered with issues and bugs are being defended. If you have seriously played this game for a week you would have experienced probably over a dozen different bugs in any game mode being campaign or any online mode, that genuinely make the game unplayable. Whether it is soft locks or people in other countries whose ping quite literally prevents them from having any sort of chance of just a playable experience.
This is a AAA title, let me say this again a AAA title, full fledged game that has been promoted more than anything in the past but yet It feels unbelievably rushed and bare bones. So after community outcry we get responses from the developers saying they’re going to add more content and a large patch a month after the release… But why? Why is it now that to get what seems like a full, playable experience you have to wait for an update a month after its release. If I’m paying $60 for a game I don’t want to wait another month to enjoy it.
So to those saying “Stop whining it’ll get better” why should a person in some cases if they bought the whole Xbox bundle that paid $500 have to wait for it to get better. When AAA title hits the shelf and is promoted the way this one was I expect a solid out of box experience instead of one that has 50,000 updates just to get it to its final form.
A lot of people can’t finish the campaign, almost every EU player can’t play online and even if your not EU the hit detection and consistency of weapons no matter the ping still makes online highly unenjoyable. So why am I paying $60 again?
But little tommy over here “But but it’s on game pass so it’s only $1 not just $60” the fact is the option is still there… a lot of people still bought the game for full price and even higher. Being said brings me to the laughable MTX prices, $10 for a skin…a skin… you got a guy over here paying $60 for a AAA game and you’re going to charge him $10 for a skin. Yikes. “But but game pass, $1” then make the damn thing a game pass exclusive and then I might start to understand the pricing.
Us gamers as a whole have been wayyyy to lenient with games now a days, stop defending something that needs months and months even years to reach its best great games are ones that are great out of the box not a year later.
