the gameplay vids look good but they don't show how well the game feels control wise and that above everything matters most to me

I really enjoyed the beta, the demo seemed to fix the problems it did have. It felt a bit clunky at times, but its not as bad as it was in the beta I played.

I'm just waiting until they fix the stat clearing glitch, I don't want to have my stats reset :(

At the moment, no, not worth it. Wait until the free add-on (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=356796) and first update is released before making a purchase.

The games matchmaking is broken. That alone will have you pulling your hair out.

Just because its not broken for you doesn't mean its not broken for others.

It's not broken at all, people are complaining about not getting into game, I play with 5 people that are all over the country that have no issue getting into games, in the last 50 games 1 was laggy.


People need to stop driving people away by acting like something with the game is making it un-playable

Did he dl the trial and then buy the full game?
Did he post on the official website where they are working on a fix and trying to get people restored?


Does having your stats reset make it unable to play the game?

Then I guess someone should remove this update about stats being wiped (http://www.gothamcityimpostors.com/home/item/432-important-stat-wipe-issue-information) from the official website.

Does having your stats reset make it unable to play the game?
To some people, yes, they will refuse to play the game. I know I would if I had levelled up a number of times, only to be reset more than once.

Face it, the game has problems. Just because your experience has gone smooth, does not mean it has for others (refer to link for coming update).

Warn them it's happening, that's fine but don't steer them away from it

For some people stuff like that makes them never touch the game again. If it were me I wouldn't play it again. I would say it is game breaking, fix or no fix. The fact that it happens in the first place is proof enough that the game was broken. So what, the people who want their account restored now need to wait god knows how long before they can play again?

Sounds like a good deal, I spend 1200 for a game, and end up waiting until I'm allowed to play it.

As said already, to some people it matters.

Some people refuse to play a game because of a weapon (COD games a big example).

It's just how it is.

like any game its a matter of preference.
There's a few MINOR problems (and thats exactly what they are) and will hopefully be fixed next month; there are some glitchy achievements but thats in EVERY game at least once; the game is frustrating, not "unplayable" since the biggest issue seems to be reset status' so dont let the hype and stuff fool you. Every game has flaws on its debut so if you like Class-FPS games, get it
If you dont like them it wont hurt the company

Bullshit. I've completed near 200 arcade games, far from every game has glitchy achievements and I don't think I've ever played an arcade game with an issue as serious as the stat reset in this game. Smash TV being impossible to complete is pretty damn bad too, I guess.

It's not even about the XP since they give you that back - it's about the fact that I had 450 out of 500 headshots and 45 out of 50 slaps and now I have to fucking start over. They can't give that progress back. And I really, really fucking hated getting those slaps and was so happy I was almost done with it. Yay for starting over!

The developers have already openly stated that the stat reset only happens if you downloaded the full game while in the trial. The problem with this is that it's not just after the first time you play it. It'll just happen eventually. To solve the issue simply download the game from the game market place on the xbox 360 dashboard. Now other then that if there's a reason why this game is "broken and unplayable" (because you've only really gone on about the stat reset) please feel free to say something.

Why does a game have to be broken in more than one way?

Stat reset is a major problem for an online only game were progression can be lost.

This game has also frozen on me a handful of times and put me to dashboard twice as many times. It's a fun game that has it's problems.

Haven't had any crashing problems nor a stat reset. But the matchmaking system is broken as all hell on PC.

Countless times I've sat there watching it fill up a lobby with 7 people then sit there for about 20 seconds waiting for an 8th only to decide that its not going to get the 8th so it throws me into a completely new and empty lobby.
Other times it will set up the teams for a match get to the end of the countdown, then just throw half the players out of the lobby.

It doesn't have to be, but the people that like this game just want people to stop driving people away from a good game because of a problem that has a known issue, a possible work around, a fix in the works and something that's not game breaking unless you care about stat progress.

If people would stop telling people to stay away from a great game because of this minor issue (minor in the amount of people it affects) then it wouldn't seem like we are making the stat tracking less of an issue.



How about everyone that has a problem with the stat tracking instead of calling this game unplayable, you tell people what you did like, suggest the demo, warn them that if they don't follow the work around for the stat reset that it may happen. That way people can enjoy a great game and be forewarned that their stats may reset, since not everyone will stop playing a game because your stats don't track, not everyone cares that much

The developers have already openly stated that the stat reset only happens if you downloaded the full game while in the trial.No, they haven't, because that would be an idiotic thing for a programmer still searching for the root cause of a glitch to do. They've said that's one of the major reasons, not that it's the only reason. Because it's not.

My stats were just reset out of the blue, for no reason at all. I'm well-versed in XBLA gameplay and haven't upgraded a trial game to a full version from within the game in something like 5 years. It's not a new issue unique to GCI. The reset just happened to me when I started the game to go play with some friends - the "loading profile" part took extra long and when it finally finished, all my stats said 0 and everything was locked.

I'm far from alone - there's an 80+ page thread with people reporting stat resets on the official forums. The main issue is the trial one, sure, but lots of people have posted lots of weird reasons. Some guy was changing his class, his 360 froze and when he got back in the game, he was reset. Some other guy was accepting an invite, the 360 froze and you can guess the rest. You guys downplaying this situation have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, and perhaps it would be a good idea for you to browse around the GCI support forums to see the issues being reported instead of just babbling out of your asses about issues you know nothing about.

How about everyone that has a problem with the stat tracking instead of calling this game unplayable, you tell people what you did like, suggest the demo, warn them that if they don't follow the work around for the stat reset that it may happen.

Because I totally said how all those games were released in a 100% perfect state. CoD games are all shit. They've been rereleasing the same game for the past 5 years and still can't get it right. As for Skyrim I haven't played it so I can't comment on its state of release.

GCI was released in a broken state. You shouldn't have to wait for a patch for it to work properly.

While i dont always agree with ofay he has some really good points
Beause the problems dont benefit the player they get crucified and brings the rep of the game down but even though there's issues the game is completely playable, end of story.
Those problems are being fixed in a few weeks, why are people so pissed off?
Unless you got reset yourself, dont worry about it! Play a different game until the patch is out if you're that friggin' worried!
Yes it's a pain in the ass but if you're so mad about games being released without being 100% flawless put your money where your mouth is: grow up, go to school, become a developer and do it yourself.

What world do you live in? Almost every game that comes out now a days needs a patch. Also they have said they are giving a patch a month within releasing it, that's far faster and better than most games.

The standard practice for early patches is first week, releasing a patch more than a month later is not even close to "far faster and better" than any game I've bought the last year.

Reason being that there's time between a game goes gold and release, and most developers take that time to fix obvious issues. Why Monolith didn't do this with GCI is beyond confusing.

Just because others are doing it doesn't make something right. The game should be released in a state where its not broken and needs patching.

At the very least if it does need patching then it shouldn't be a month after release for the first update.

I love this game. YES i have been kicked games or disconnect from server. But this game is worth every bit of the price. I am pretty sure they will get the bugs worked out of mp. I would suggest posting on there site to get some answers. I would say out of every 20 games i play that less than two are laggy or disconnected. I really think that when you can join a game in progress, that it will help with the issues.
