I've got this one on PS3. I love it. I bought it on release and I'm still loving the freedom and beauty of it all. There are a few noticable bugs in the PS3 version but none so significant as what is reported for the xbox. Either way it's a game well worth having even with the bugs. The map editor is a gigantic cherry on top!!!

I only played SP but I didn't find many problems with it. It's a little bit long winded (lots of travelling about) but I enjoyed it overall.

The game was buggy as hell, so this will be a welcome. I mean, its not often you kill a rebel leader, only for his body to slowly tumble out of the building...
