Received the game in its glorified empty case with the digital codes in pristine condition.
Downloaded the +40GB files from Origins and booted the game. It ran smoothly on the menu. Beautiful colors. Character customization is lack luster though. Can't seem to change the characters face to be other than Asian looking...
So I said..screw it. Booted the game and started the campaign. Everything was beautiful and pristine! For 5 seconds. Then the sound for voices cut out and all I could hear were the background noises and see everything that was happening. Once in that 5+seconds, the characters disappeared too. And this is just the cut scene.
Will try to play more tonight to see if that was just a one time thing.
