    Haha yeah exactly. I said overlook not disregard/ignore ;) its plain as day whats wrong with this game. But my 10hr trial ended too soon for me. About 7.5hrs of it was a scratch on the story's surface. So yeah, im having enough fun. Plus the mp is sick despite the issues.

    Yeah still seems worth a purchase, just a shame how much they got wrong when they got so much right with the others. Big step up in some areas (combat, powers, graphics) and big steps down in other areas

    Had potential for GOTY but it seems like publisher didn't wanna budge on a deadline. Patches might fix some of the bugs/animations etc but don't ever see this being a classic like the other 3.

    For anyone interested there's a companion app that's supposedly a bit useful.

    Yeah its great for managing the strike teams, get some resources stacking. The rewards are only for sp.

    For the mp side you can gear and level up your characters. Good for time saving i guess, bit smoother than in-game menus

    That was a pretty solid review, mostly factual for once (based on evidence shown in the vid).

    Do you need to run the VPN while playing? I'm not buying from Origin because it's a fucking ripoff regardless, but heard it needed to be on - so not a problem for SP but MP is off the cards.

    JB Hifi Store pickup pre-order, $59. Saving $31 (~34%) on a physical product vs digital is just stupid.

    Haha I just logged into the Apex app and sent one of my strike teams on a mission, lololol. One of them was in mission and that's stuck but the second was free and the clock is now ticking. Yay.

    Scratch that they were finished and I just had to accept the loot. Just sent them on a mission. Cool.
