Shoddy.

There's no other word for it. Offline, the game is superb, and when you can actually get into an online game this is the same case. But for the love of God, why does it have to be so goddamned difficult to get into a bloody online game?!

The frequent starting and stopping and starting again of loading, the way the game keeps crashing on the menu screens, the horrendously poor connections... I bet none of this would be happening if EA didn't insist on running their online games through their own servers instead of through Microsoft's. I thought the whole point of Xbox Live was that Microsoft controlled and provided all the servers?

I'll stick to the offline game with this, I think. I'm far from impressed with the online mode.

Earlier today, Edgy claimed to have "stealed" something.

'seems to have' not 'seems to of'

The latter makes no sense :P

Indeed - seems to of got better recently, although sometimes people disappear randomly and appear just as quickly, or stats don't update. But it's better.

Still rubbish and needless.

O!

Unlock Crossing Crush.

Best crash junction eva. 2,600,000 is my best.

EA Live no longer smells so much

Managed to host a game for well over an hour without problems. Then it just decided not to let me sign in between matches.
