Is there a way to save this because every time I try to leave it starts me over. It is a great game but this has been a major problem for me.

I was a big fan-tard of the Madness series ever since I first saw Hank shoot his way through 30 or so men in the pilot. This game really does immerse me into the action of lethal badasses with crosses for faces mutilating one another.

That being said, there are some issues with it. The biggest issue is the god-awful lag. Even with my good graphics card, I find myself shooting at the wall where an enemy once was because I clicked the mouse one too many times. This would easily be corrected with a quality button. I haven't found one as of yet, but if there is one, I apologize for this entire paragraph in advance.

Minor problems are the block action, the cover system, and the bullet-time. When enemies block, the weapon they're holding briefly turns into either a machete or a carbon knife. (again, this isn't rally an issue with me.)
I've never really used the cover system, seeing as I've sunk all my points into the TAC-bar, making myself virtually invincible.
The bullet time is terrible as well. The screen shakes rather violently whenever I turn it on, making it more of a liability than an asset. I've seen people get motion sickness from regular games (the pussies) and I'd hate to see them go through that, or the state of the upholstery afterwards.

But other than that, it's a good game with the potential to kick ass for all time.

BIG* Ok comon problems is the save feature ive lost everything..... 2 TIMES

BIG* the lag even with a good graphics card

MINOR* some bugs including when the guys parry or block: lets say that they have a bottle on their hand and when thay parry and block it turns into a machette and turns back after the block really fast

keep up the good work tho :)

I wish the "CONTINUE" button was useful. The game always fails to save, if it even can at this point. You guys should really make a save option or make it more obvious if it exists.
I had The-Swain's NPC and Tricky on my Arena team. It was great, till I refreshed the page. Everything went away.

It was terrible.
