I saved my photos in a folder before reinstalling the Crew 2. Photo ops show as still done, but after copying images in the right place under the original names, I can't view them in the gallery. I know this is a minor issue that doesn't affect gameplay, but is there an easy fix for it?

I've uploaded 3 videos of gameplay from the Crew 2 now. They show up in the gallery, but unlike the photos, I can only see the damn thumbnails, and the web site offers no apparent way to access them. Is this just BS that never really worked, or can someone tell me how to view my recordings? I would especially like to save them as mpegs or at least post them on social sites like Facebook if I can.

So I'm supposed to drop off this volatile item in multiplayer, and the marker leads to a closed shop near Kuchiro Plaza. It's definitely not upstairs, and if it's underground, why didn't the marker lead me there? It's only episode 1, dammit.

WTF? I'm nearly done with the game, just four bombs to defuse, several virtual reality challenges and one Riddler trophy. 95% completion. In fact, if I can take down Riddler I can finally see the AK protocol ending and move on. Just one problem: that last one is the underground riddle with the force field. I have the emp for that, but for some reason the line launcher quickfire still doesn't work, and without it I can't get the trophy. Do I need to finish the last upgrade to activate this one? Because I don't really see one for it at all. My last game fully upgraded, but didn't come as close to game completion. Quickfire for the line launcher worked fine, too. I'm trying to put off starting my game plus as long as I can this time.

Okay, I admit it: if a game doesn't get me what I want or expect in fairly short order, I get online and complain. This leads to unfair assessments like the last, but it's just me blowing off steam, not trolling.

After playing the game through, though, I have to say I liked it. I prefer open world gaming, but this was still nice.

I do wish there was at least one fairly open area to explore, and I think the way they chose to give you the impression of more space- basically only giving you maps for the less linear of the larger areas- was cheap and limiting. In the future, they don't have GPS support? I also hate the lack of controller support. "Not enough time" is no reason to release an inferior version of the game to the one format that really should be superior. Make the time, not cheap excuses. If not before game release, then after.

That said, only the controller issue continued to bother me throughout the game. And the truth? I really liked ME2. I didn't even mind the movie sequences I wasn't allowed to skip past. That's how good it was.

I have played the game for many hours now. It's beautiful, but the ability to explore is gone. It's now a 1st person shooter with a 3rd person viewpoint- linear and lifeless. Don't see the thrill in this.

3) the nuke detonation caused that from P1Spastic_Nutcase
Really confused me when you said that. Mercer's been flying choppers almost the entire game, why would he be stupid enough to fly the nuke TOWARD Manhattan? Especially when we clearly see him fly it out to sea? No, it was Blackwatch or the army that destroyed Central Park and everything north of it.

I figured out the easy way to find what races you haven't WON. Go to the RECOMMENDS maps. The bright green diamonds are the ones you haven't won yet. I showed three on my map but once I clicked on them and it showed  what cars to use you can select a car and then with that car go to the races and see if you have won that one race with that car. If you haven't won a race with any of the available cars for that race, then you have just found the race you need. I now have 100% on the single player game.

I hate to tell you this, but the red diamonds are most wanted races- you know, to win a right to take down a most wanted car? If I remember right, they weren't red until I won them, but can't say for sure. The green ones are regular races, sure, but they stay green and never turn red, unless your game is different from mine.

I'm trying out the multiplayer- I'm nearly finished with single player- and I keep encountering races which tell me to drive somewhere and "run the clock".  I have no clue what this means, unless maybe it means to do donuts or drift in a circle, but if so, why not just say so?  Why do they call drafting streamlining, for that matter?  After God knows how many games, why have they suddenly changed the terminology here?  Can we at least have that much consistency?
