What was the 107 MB patch for by the way? Was it something to do with the User-Generated Content module?|
I had a UCG message pop up while I was playing - the game initially freezed for a few seconds which alarmed me as I thought the game had crashed - but afterwards I could play all kinds of silly little mini-games designed by the developers, Sucker Punch.
Cool that the game has no initial install too although the loading time was slightly longer than expected, instead it appears to install data as you play which for me seems to be around 2.4 GB (which was definitely not installed during loading as (a) there was no prompt and (b) it would take longer than the 2 minutes the game took to load anyway).
@RabidChild - The climbing seems to much the same as the original although you can now zip up drain pipes and stuff really fast with an electric boost. I find the best way to climb building is to do just what you said, mash the X button whilst pushing up at an angle. Of course, you don't have to do that but, there again, this is a much faster paced game so you wouldn't want to climb up at a slower Assassin's Creed pace, not when militia with RPGs are firing at you!!!
The controls do feel twitchy though compared with other open world games. Spinning the camera around for example is surprisingly fast even on the lowest Normal setting and it takes some time to get used to after playing slower running sandbox games. I've had no issues getting to where I want for the most part although getting some of the Blast Shards has proven a little awkward (obviously a deliberate design choice to offer some challenge in getting them). Being able to rocket boast along cables is really good fun. It's certainly a game to get the adrenalin going IMO as it is clearly designed to be as spectacular as possible from the scrumptious lighting effects through to the amazing explosions and physics on show. Causing carnage has never been such fun and normally I'm such a good boy in these games!
