The Wolf Among Us
A broken release of a game that I was dying for.
Do not buy this game right now, you may be asking why I gave this 1's across the board even though I said I was dying for this game. That is because as of right n ow, 11/19/2014. My copy and replacement copy of this game for my 360 are marred with HORRENDOUS slowdown, loadtimes and lag issues.
Once I got to the 'press start' screen, after around 30 seconds of waiting for that simple screen to load, I was treated to 5 minutes of a black screen while the main menu loaded, 5 minutes, for the MAIN MENU.
Then I was treated to slow down and animation lag on the Main Menu,, yes, Lag, on the main menu. I got into the game after 9 minutes of waiting. I played the first scene then upon going upstairs ingame, I had to wait 10, 10 minutes between scenes to load.
So. I had just spent 24 and a half minutes versus around two minutes of ACTUALLY PLAYING THE GAME.
I tried it on another console and had the same issues so I got a replacement disc which again, had issues on BOTH consoles. So unless I got two bad games in a row, this is an issue with the game itself which requires a patch.
And if you're wondering why I didn't just install it to improve speed. It doesn't support that or I would have immediately. It is a sad day when I have to say the downloaded version of this game runs better than the on disc copy.
I can't speak for the Xbox One version of this, nor the PS3 or PS4 versions, so I will give the bottom line for the xbox 360 version.
Bottom Line: Do not buy this game at this time, it is broken. Wait for a patch so you can actually enjoy your game when you purchase it.
