I just got around to installing the latest system update to the 360, and now this game is behaving strangely.
1) All units are invisible except for warriors and barbarians. (Includes galleys, settlers, archers, horsemen, etc...). I can still control them, but I can not see them on the map. 2) Battle animations have become a strange square dance. Instead of actually fighting, the characters glide around each other with their hands at their sides. Eventually, my units will shrink down to just one and the "battle dance" will end. The result of the battle seems to have no connection to the animation, as I may still have all three members of the unit.
Has anyone else seen these problems? #1 makes the game a bit more challenging. #2 was funny at first, but got old fast.
