This was a great game, and really pretty. It has its run of bugs, but most games do these days, thanks to shortened production times, and publishers forcing out product. Speaking of publishers... The only reason I gave this game a 1 is the fact that to be able to play online, you must enter a special code that comes with the game... if you buy it new from a store. Having rented it, and thinking of "keep"ing it, I do not have the option of playing online, unless I pay for a key. This is EA's fault, not the developers. EA wants more money, because, obviously they don't make enough. So to "stick it" to anyone who buys used games, or rents, they are forcing you to pay to play. Last time I checked only MMO, who constantly update content... AND FIX BUGS IN THEIR GAMES, should charge to play. If EA established some kind of bug-patching\fixing processes into their games, that fixed both the single player bugs, and multiplayer bugs, then I could see a single time charge. Anyway, in summery, if you are thinking of ranting this game to play with your friends, forget about it. You ether have to pay, or not play.
I had the game for a week. Experienced two separate game breaking glitches. Both resulted in the inability to progress beyond the glitch. I started over once, shipped the game back on the second. Such a shame, as the core game is quite decent.
Also, there are no fixes for the glitches. EA will act like the game has no glitches, so don't bother there. Such a waste.
