  • “You can always uninstall, then clean your system, and reinstall the game back again” – You call this a solution for stopping the game from crashing? Are you for real?

  • Alternatively TURN10 can just issue what should have been a day 1 patch to solve these issues and the horrific fps drops many users are suffering. This release has been a disgrace and the review ratings on the Windows Store reflect this.
    When will develepors and publishers learn that it is not acceptable to release games in an unfinished/unoptimised state. All they do is generate consumer bad will and apathy towards their future releases.
