Excellent games but bad product
on 11 September 2011
Let me explain:
I bought this game on Friday and had two distinct problems from my experience: 1) Mandatory install which randomly kicked in every so often upon the game being booted up and lasted a good twenty minutes. Trying to locate the install data was an impossibility because of the simple fact that it could not be located in GAME DATA - whereas other similar collections that require an install (such as Tomb Raider) can have their data located there. 2) Freezing - I approached the end of chapter 1 of the first game and it froze. Three times. All at the same point. I put this down to the install issue again - the game is probably seeking this extra data from the HDD only... it isn't there.
My advice? If you want these games you can buy a Digital download bundle off the Playstation Network which includes both of these games for £11.99. Sure you might not have a disc or the extras (not a lot, admittedly), but at least you are guaranteed to have a game that works.
I'd wager Lucasarts/Activision will release a patch eventually to fix the install issue in particular, but why wait on an event that might not happen?
