LEGO Star Wars 2 Freezing Issues?

September 28, 2006

Like many other people I’ve been spending a lot of free time with LEGO Star Wars 2 and visually it looks great. Prior to getting the game I was aware of rampant reports that LucasArts pushed the game out despite known bugs and at first I dismissed those rumors as mere hogwash. Now I am sitting back wondering if this game is going to get any type of update via Live to actually make it playable.

In the last week, no less than 5 or 6 times I have had the game simply lock up in various random places. The first thought might be that it is my 360, but throwing in another game allows me to keep on playing the system.

I am aware of a [url=]1.01 patch[/url] for the PC version of the game and that is great news for PC folks, but what about everyone else? How many of you have run into very frustrating bugs and freezes? I’d love to hear what platform you have it for and what your experience has been with this title.

In my opinion, LucasArts had a chance to make this into a huge blockbuster but I have a problem recommending a game to everyone that is this buggy. It makes me rethink my previous position on LEGO Batman. Are they going to rush it out the door to coincide with a movie release too?
