Unless you "fly to New Zealand" you can listen to the soundtrack here until launch - https://open.spotify.com/album/0BRICN5TGMT1WqFcZkYOaF

Great opening few hours. Probably better than the first so far. Some stunning scenes.

Really annoyed that, after waiting so long for its release, I ran out of time last night to start it. Hoping to get stuck in tonight.

This is both stunning and a joy to play, the soundtrack is also incredible. Can't wait to play more.

Haven't started it yet, downloaded on PC then read reviews that the PC version was strawberry floated due to a sound bug or something. Was another (8GB) patch this morning so hopefully that's sorted it out. Also popped on the Game Pass app on my phone and set it to download on my One X.

This is really good, but the performance drops are hurting it quite a bit. Getting almost constant frame drops, and some points it just freezes for five-ten seconds. Occasional crashes too. Such a shame.

Yeah I get some framerate problems after an hour or 2 play session. Meant to be a patch this week to hopefully sort it.

It’s a great game spoiled by the performance issues. Hopefully the next patch sorts it out.

Jesus, the performance in this game is strawberry floating atrocious. It's a real shame. Hopefully the upcoming patch fixes things. I'm just not sure why the game shipped this way.

I'm at the last boss in this, but I'm waiting for a patch because some of the end game achievements are currently broken. I really don't want to play the whole game without upgrades again. :dread:

Experiencing considerable lockups during gameplay. Yeah, I shouldn't have started this until the bug fixes started getting hammered out. It's a strawberry floating mess in terms of optimization. Such a shame as it's really good.
