Ruined the game, will wait until patch
I purchased the game after hearing how amazing it was. I mean, it's won over 60 GOTY awards, so that definitely piqued my interest. I downloaded the game on 360 and everything was fine until I got to episode 2. I went to start up episode 2 and instead it played the ending of episode 1 for me. I restarted and it worked fine - chalked it up to being a minor annoyance.
Then, everything went downhill when I got to episode 3, saved the game when I was in the train, went back, and everything was sent back to episode 1. I started episode 3 again, and it seemed to have kept all of my choices from the previous episodes, but I'm not sure if that's entirely accurate now.
Anyway, I reluctantly played again, got all the way up to the train, saved, went back, episode 1.
Telltale, you guys really had me with Back to the Future. I loved that game. But this...this is inexcusable BS. For a game touted as being the best of the year, you'd think some time and energy would have gone into the QA and testing process. I mean, this isn't as minor as a character clipping into a building, or hell, a choice that never shows up. THIS IS A GIGANTIC CRITICAL GAME BLOCKER THAT DETERMINES IF I WILL EVER PLAY IT AGAIN.
I'm not playing the game again until this issue is fixed. I'm really not sure what I should do now with the entire thing...start over from episode 1 just to make sure my choices stayed in tact? I don't know about that. If that's the case, I might ask for a refund on the product and stay away from TTG for a little while.
Was once a big fan...now, not so sure.
