Exclamation Dont play this game!

Warning, this game will seriously screw up your gamerscore and profile.

Like many games recently the achievements arent on Xbox.com so the achievements you earn will not go onto your Xbox.com profile.

However, what makes this game worse is that you can earn achievements and increase your gamerscore on your console, but when you turn it off and back on the game shows you have 0 gamerscore and lets you earn more gamerscore for the same achievement.

This is hard to describe but basically I earned some achievement twice and both times my total gamerscore went up.

So now neither my gamerscore on my console or on Xbox.com is correct.

I am therefore recovering my profile immediatley and not playing this game til (if ever) its fixed. Last time a recovery took 5 hours due to the size of my profile so im going to post parcel bombs to EA til then.


EDIT: My parcel bombs worked and it appears things are now working though I cant get the Lvl 4 achievement. Guess I have to clear cache and delete game and redownload.

I second this, DO NOT play this game untill they fix it.


It will be fixed, if not I will be getting a 400mp refund.

There is indeed a problem with the achievements and gamerscore.

I unlocked a few achievements, went to the dashboard, the gamercard was there with the icons of the unlocked achievements.
When I turned off my console to pick up my son, and came back home almost 90 minutes after shutting down the xbox, I turned it back on. The achievements were gone, but my new gamerscore (old GS + gamerscore from DS:I) was still there.

Solution as always: sign out your account and recover gamertag to get your 'old' gamerscore back until this problem is fixed.

I updated the achievement guide accordingly.

Good luck

Think I'll just download the trial until this is sorted. Why is xbox.com getting really lazy at sorting out achievements for new games...

Achievements work fine for me.
Turned my xbox off and back on = Fine,
Signed out and back in = Fine.
Just have the problem where it signs me out when I load it.

Enjoyable for a free game.
I'd give them a 2/10 for effort though. The comics look like they were drawn by a 4 yr old.

Im sure theyll fix it soon. This happens from time to time when Microsoft is too stupid to update their databases on time. It happened with the last DLC for Bioshock 2 which, of course, was the best one and not some crap multiplayer.

I just loaded the game again and it didn't sign me out of Live.
It seems that it has been fixed.

When they show up on Xbox.com, theyre fixed for sure. Im still downloading the game so I cant say but check on there. If theyre not showing up on your gamercard or on the small gamercard in your sig, thats a hint it may not be fixed. Ill feel certain when I see the website update with them.

I just checked and Xbox.com still hasnt updated to include the game. If anyone finds any differently, let us know. It should be safe when the site updates.

Tried to check the leaderboards in game but the game said I wasn't signed into Xbox Live even though I know I was. I'm on a wired connection and I hit the center button and checked I could see my friends.. . maybe this is causing the problem it wont update your score online because the game doesnt connect?

I just got an achievement for it a second ago(Trace Element), before reading this thread. Turned off xbox and signed back in and it's still there..

I'm going to wait to see if they do patch this before playing again, just to be on the safe side.

For once, suprisingly, it wasn't EA's fault.
