I don't get to play for hours on end, so when I sit down to play for 30 minutes, I expect my progress to be recorded in that time. I've even gone to the save menu and recorded my finding of a couple of relics only to have those finding mean nothing the next time I load the game. This is so frustrating, I can't explain it. I can only say that I don't want to play this stupid game anymore. I've done the same exact thing now for the third time, only to not have any of my progression recorded. I mean, honestly, what is the point of having a save option if it does absolutely nothing? The first time I tried to save my progress and was sent back to a prior location with nothing I had done being recorded, I thought it was a fluke and that somehow it was my fault. But this is not the case. I redid everything and tried to manually save my progress, but when I reloaded the game, nothing I did was saved. I need to go and collect the very same relics and packages. I'm seriously to the point that I don't want to play anymore.
I'm going to give it another shot, and I hope that these initial impressions are unwarranted. I'll add an update as soon as I have more to add, but I honestly can't see what will improve on this.I am seriously wondering about all of these good reviews I've read that lead me to buy the game in the first place. Am I that gullible where I'd buy a crappy game, simply because I've been told it's good? I hope not!
