I've said it before and I'll say it again...I just hope they fix up some of this stuff for the PC port. As much as I love driving games and really wanted this one, I just can't pay for a broken game like this. What a waste of potential.
You expect Atari to fix this crap for a PC port? Personally, I expect the PC port to be a simple port of the Xbox version, possibly with the addition of mouse controls. I don't expect anything as far as bug fixes go.
Atari games have always been hit-and-miss as far as publishing goes. For every UT2004, we have a Temple of Elemental Evil (which wasn't 'allowed' to be patched, even though the patch was ready).
