(Please refrain from should've played it on pc comments. I'm not part of the master race just yet.) I keep having big frame rate issues as the game slows down on several occasions during combat. The game slows down long enough for it to bother me so I'm wondering if other folks are having issues like me. Have you duders had trouble like this? Thanks. (I'm typing this on my iPhone so sorry for the typos.)

That type of slow down, especially when you are scrolling the base, or a lot of PHYSICS are happening in combat, is kinda par for the course. What really kills me is this late game bug where every second mission begins in a hard lock when the Skyranger drops the squad off. Had it happen consistently this morning, and it's really disheartening considering how close I am to the end. At least I remembered to save.

IN other words, fuck us twice for not buying it on another system. Would not have made this mistake had I done my comp upgarde this year rather then waiting for next.

There are a few hitches, but nothing so substantial as to hinder my enjoyment.  I assume you've already tried deleting and reinstalling the game data?

I'm having massive UI bugs on 360. Whenever I complete a mission, all B button prompts disappear. So I can never back out of a menu. Have to restart after every mission. Maddening.

Thus far I've heard of quite a few technical/game breaking issues on every platform, so probably just going to play this some time in the distant future.

I've been having weird glitches on the 360. At one point in a super difficult mission I was having it hard locked on me. Frame rate has been super annoying and from time to time certain characters will constantly have the "alien in sight" graphic on their HUD when there aren't any in sight.

Been playing all Saturday on 360, and I've encountered two hard locks so far. Once when loading a mission, and once while choosing hair for a soldier. Nothing I raged over, but definitely annoying. Other than that, the frame rate and everything else performance-wise have been fine.

The one technical issue that I've had on 360 is that occasionally I'll get disc read errors (even when installed to the hard drive) and get dumped back to the dashboard. If I restart the game I can pick back up at the same moment and go several more hours without the issue popping up again. I suppose it could be a hardware issue, but I doubit it considering that I'm playing a few other games at the moment and not seeing the same issue.

PC version locks 100% of the time if you hit more than one Muton at the same time and they both use Intimidate.

So this game has a lot of bugs? Great.

#11 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

When does it happen specifically? On rounds impacting? Cover being destroyed? Basically anything that causes significant particle effects? Or is it more while the game is "thinking" about what's going to happen? Both are pretty common on the console

On my 360 I have the game installed but the disc will spin harder than a game should. The way I fixed that was by signing out and signing back in. However it started when for some reason the disc started spinning again then it said it was unreadable.

Sounds similar to the "disc unreadable" issue that I've seen. It would really be nice if this was fixed because getting booted out to the dashboard for no good reason is really annoying.

the frame rate isn't great on ps3, but other than that, no problems so far. I'm not very far in yet, though

Damn I was thinking of getting it on PS3.

#18 Posted by Rasmoss (433 posts) -

@Phatmac: I'm having massive problems with it right now on PS3. Basically every other mission it crashes at the mission start. I'm almost at the end but I've given up on the game now because it's so annoying.

On the bad framerate, I think it could be due to the autosave at the start of your turn, as I only saw the framerate dive only at the start of the turn.
