No, I wouldn't. The 360 version was fine. It was just on sale during black friday / cyber monday for $15 or less in some retail spots with all the DLC (Undead Nightmare was fantastic). I guess you should have looked at is as, if someone paid YOU $35 in savings, would you dig up your 360 and play one of the best games of this past generation (easily top 3 in my mind)?

Anyone else having this problem? Once I get past the title screen, the game hangs on the checking DLC message forever tonight. Haven't had this issue at all since launch. Is it occurring for others?
Lot's of hate, but I gotta say ME1 is one of my favorites for this past generation when it comes to orchestral/score/original music, along with Halo: Reach, Skyrim, Super Meat Boy and Dark Souls.
If we're talking licensed music, the ones that stuck most with me were Guitar Hero 2, Forza 2, Forza Horizon, Dirt 3, or Hotline Miami.
With wining new cars you at least have some sort of progression. You do not have to spend these credits you earn on some cheap car to drive another class or cup but rather save money for the car you really want. With the system in Forza 5 you have to buy a shitty car to drive these new cups or buy one with tokens. And that is where it goes into the wrong direction.
try this in the meantime
Wow - will see if this still works tonight. Maybe Turn 10 needed the micro-transactions so badly that they can't afford to patch it ;) haha.
This has to be easily the #1 complaint about this game - It does make me wonder if it was Turn 10 or MS that pushed for micro-transactions. Maybe Turn 10 is the good guys and if they are aware of the glitch they are trying to ignore it for fans? One can hope. On the other hand, if the complaints gets loud enough, maybe they will open up free play... I mean, what's one more 180 for Microsoft?
Has Turn 10 come out and explained at ALL why Free Play is completely useless now? I was willing to give them a pass on the fact that FM5 has less modes, less cars, and less tracks because its a new console. I was even willing to accept that you couldn't earn XP on Free play so that they can push micro-transactions for XP Boosts, because hey, its 2013. But to go to the extent that they did and limit the cars you can 'rent' so that you'd have to buy tokens for the cars that people actually want to use, is way too far. Even worse, you can't buy tracks to use in Free Play, so why limit them at all?
The thing that sold me on FM5 was the inclusion of the Lotus F1 car. I installed it last night thinking, well I won't get deep into career mode yet, but let me load up the car in free play on Spa or Bathhurst or something and just have some fun. NOPE. Want to use the F1 car? Grind out 6 MILLION credits in career, or buy TEN THOUSAND tokens. That's like $50....RIDICULOUS.
(PS - you don't earn cars in career anymore, only credits...so to even build up your garage for free play requires even more grinding - Free to Play for $60, folks).
I knew there were limitations with the content of the game, but I did not inform myself enough on this aspect. That's my fault for trusting Turn 10 after 4 other wonderful games, I guess. First purchase mistake of the generation.
Anyone who enjoys Forza casually to fire up a favorite track and car, be warned. And this is coming from someone who does grind out the career on every forza game, but every now and then wants to load up a fun mix of car/track. Really sad.
Are the other DLC bosses as hard as Artorias?
The Sactuary Guardian (first boss) was a total pushover for me. I was probably OP for him going into the fight, and I knew to dodge his wing flap/wind attack.
Manus ('final' DLC boss) - I thought was way tougher than Artorias...he has the highest HP of any boss in the game and has some crazy combos. I thought he hit harder and was more relentless whereas Artorias gives you plenty of time to drink Estus and dodge once you get the distance right.
I though Kalameet (hidden dragon boss) wasn't that tough. I might have gotten lucky with his attack patterns though compared to how some people describe their encounters with him. To compare it to another dragon, the Hellkite Wyrm I thought was tougher.
Most people thought that Artorias would demolish Vinny if he went in there with his usual tank play style. I just finished the DLC myself and I have a similar build to Vinny's but with 7 or so less strength and a more even distribution to Dex/Vitality/Stamina. The funny thing is that I was able to blow past Artorias on the second try by tanking. At least he tried it!
