    @Red_Bool Series X.

    Pretty much crashes every hour
    That's weird, I'm on mission 4 on series x and haven't had one hiccup?

    Hmm. Normal or ultimate edition?

    Quality mode on Series X seems to me to have better performance than the Xbone version so happy with the 30fps, and ray tracing (which I think makes a big differene and I do like a lot). But eally disappointed that the game save doesn't transfer across and I have to start again.

    Also, is there a way to slow down the hosizontal aiming? I find it easiest to use the right stick to get close to the target and then strafe to line the shot up - which I'm sure shouldn't be right. Doom and a cojuple of others let you adjust the horizon aiming speed - if that's the term for it - but I can't see it here. Perhaps I'm just missing the mods I had upgraded with in the old version.

    Yeah, I'm playing XSX - graphics mode - and haven't had a single crash in about 10 hrs so far.
    .
    Have you been dipping in to anything else too (I tend to be a single game 'monogamous' gamer)? If so, any crashes there?

    Done a full shutdown? Is the SSD near 'full'? Not sure how background downloads are handled on XSX but maybe stop/clear them and try playing. Maybe a reinstall is worth a go.

    Might try a full shutdown to see if that fixes it or make sure I quit rather than let it quick resume

    It's the only game I'm having the issue with(at the moment)

    I've had 1 crash in about 10 hours of play on Series X, happened when switching graphics mode.

    Beyond that the only problem I had was no audio when quick resuming once.

    Beyond that it's generally been fine.

    There are definitely some issues in the games - I had a handful of crashes in my PS4 play through. The assumption there was memory leaking, which you'd imagine shouldn't be an issue on Series X?

    Not had any crashes on PS5 so far. Iím onto Mission 4 now and still enjoying the game.

    My main gripe are the unpredictable difficulty spikes - an ďalertĒ came up which asked me to go back to a previous area and take out some bad guys within a 20 minute time limit - fair enough. But these enemies were at least twice as tough as anything Iíd faced up to now and hit really hard.

    I got killed and failed the mission and there doesnít seem to be any way to try again.

    Maybe Iím not meant to do these until later in the game, but it seemed really unfair to throw that at me when I clearly had no chance.

    I remain unconvinced on the graphics too - thereís a kind of hazy smear over everything, like thereís a constant dust hanging in the air and colours look washed out. Itís the same on screenshots of the game so I know itís not my setup. At least it plays fine and the story is intriguing enough but I canít for one moment ever imagine using this game to show off my new PS5ís graphical prowess (if that need ever arose...)

    The alerts happen every hour, and aren't integral to the story. It's a nice distraction, and usually drops some decent materials, but not essential by any stretch. It's more of an endgame thing, so don't despair. :)

    The spikes pissed me off too, particularly the 'Clear the Mould' side mission you receive fairly early on but get absolutely spanked if you go to do it straight away (can barely see the '6' above the enemies' heads on a 720P TV).

    Had a couple of hard crashes on the Series S but nothing major.

    Iím not sure why, but I appear to have picked up a habit of shooting every camera I see. Donít like them tracking me when Iím close!

    @CHPxtreme Slowing down the camera movement was something I did literally within 5 seconds of starting, swings around like a madman on default. The camera settings are in the options under gameplay - I went down to 30 on everything.

    BTW, a bit boring but credit to the devs for an excellent range of options.

    I had the game hard lock on me last night (PS4)- went into an eternally spinning autosave icon and none of my controller buttons were doing anything. Hard console restart seemed to fix it, with no ill effects.

    I've just finished up the x-ray light box, and have spoken to Marshall. Seize is such a FUN power, but gets me killed as I have to stand still for a bit whilst getting a new friend.

    Mods will help reduce the time, but tbh i barely used it for more than trying it out.

    I guess in large fights it can help lower the heat a bit, but generally launch and levitate were my main ones, shield occasionally too.

    Glad I went back to this. The maze was great as was that last visit to the hotel.
    However 2 big gun fights felt a bit overkill.

    AWE though was pretty disappointing and felt like a wasted opportunity.

    Have I missed something with the AWE DLC or does it just end...

    after you finally kill Hartman

    Feels like something should happen after that?

    @QuickWithKnives nope. After the fight the next mission that popped up was the main story

    Doing the other dlc at the moment so once I finish that I'll go back and look. Thanks

    I'm pretty sure you can move while using Seize.

    Its bound to be mentioned a fair amount of times already but wow that map is bad. Its kinda cool that I'm focusing on the environment and office signs to guide me but why the map couldn't just be a Metroid Prime esque 3D model to rotate around I dont know.

    You can definitely move using Seize, just not at full speed.

    Honestly just try it, you might like it... or just massively upgrade launch and batter everyone.

    Can anyone give me some tips for the boss in the basement (mould thing) and the mirror boss? Both absolutely annihilate me. Mould thing is infuriating because Iíve been told to hide behind a particular rock but it has an area of effect gas/ground attack that hiding behind a rock doesnít help, and if I hop up onto the rock I get blasted directly.

    Have long since finished the story, and gave up on Foundation. Just fancy beating the two remaining main game bosses.

    If your being blasted use your shield. Just levitate around it, launching stuff at its weak spot when it appears, and shielding when it is about to hit you. Iím 2-0 with Mold from PS4 and PS5 and Iíve no great skill at these things. I think maybe people approach this too much like a cover shooter. Be super aggressive, keep moving, and it wonít empty your health in time.

    I canít really remember my mirror boss strategy, I think I just strafed around with shatter, again shielding if she is about to launch stuff. If you are really struggling look for a heal on launch hit mod from Foundation which makes everything easy.
