I played for six hours, Not able to save. Game says it has autosave, but it doesn't. Once you start playing this game only thing to do is to keep playing until you've beaten all of it. Ubisoft is laughing so loud now!
My copy auto saves just fine, I still save manually on my own just out of habit anyway, I guess kids have to complain about something in their easy lives.
First world problems. I don't see why it's such a big deal when you can manually save, recommending not buying it for this is just being melodramatic. Manually saving should be standard practice being that games can have show stopping bugs. My own general rule is to save about every 10 minutes or so and to keep several save slots staggered just in case a save gets corrupted or I save at what turns out to be a bad spot.
