RallySport2: A Piece of $hit?

The graphics are great. The racing is top-notch. Yet this is by far the buggiest game I've ever played. It crashes on my constantly. I came home today, and in 1 hour I got 10 DDEs. I have to race tracks over and over again in the hopes that the game will finally save it with giving me a DDE. I called the helpless desk, and the oh-so-interested person on the other line gave me two suggestions (return the game or delete your saved games), two known "fixes" that don't "fix" the problem.

There are other, bigger problems in the world, but I didn't shell out my money to buy a game that simply does not work as advertised. Microsoft, you really screwed the pooch on this one as far as I am concerned, and I'm now loathe to buy any game that comes from Microsoft Game Studios. I'm done with RS2 until they acknowledge a bug and post a fix for download. Until then, I have better things to do than reboot my XBox every 5 to 10 minutes.

If you're thinking of buying this game, save your money. It's not worth it. Some people (with newer XBoxes) don't seem to have a problem, and the game itself is good. But buyer beware. This is a game with known problems, and so far Microsoft isn't acknowledging anything.
