Summary: I hate Xbox so much right now. My son wanted this game for Xmas. I bought him a 360 (which was defective and an entirely separate nightmare) and this game. I had NO idea.that first of all the updates alone require more space than comes with the bundled Xbox. So I will need to buy a hard drive.
you should be able to play the stupid game without paying an ongoing membership

Summary: I would put zero stars here if I could. I do not have a temper but it absolutely infuriates me that these companies are gouging us in this way. You buy a game, you buy this incredibly expensive game system, you should be able to play the stupid game without paying an ongoing membership...
beware- need gold, may be 5 star game just makes me angry that you can't play offline

Summary: the game may be awesome fun I made the dumb mistake of not reading more before buying but YOU NEED XBOX GOLD ACCOUNT TO PLAY THIS GAME you can not play this game offline and if you don't have xbox gold account you need to buy one before you use this game I heard it is fun though...
I feel swindled!!!! This game exists to pressure you into getting a membership!

Summary: I feel swindled! I got this for my son for Christmas. I haven't seen another game that ONLY allows for online use with the Xboxlive membership. This game exists to pressure parents to get a live membership for their younger children that probably don't have, and don't NEED one. This enrages me.
This is the stupidest move these game makers have done

Summary: This game made so angry. I just found that only one player can play at a time on xbox360 and you must have an xbox live account. This is the stupidest move these game makers have done. Screw them and this game.

Summary: Sorry, can't play it offline... REALLY? OK it's been a while since I have bought an Xbox game... So you can't play this one unless you have a GOLD account which is $5/month... FCOL! There is no way to play it offline on your Xbox console.... At least as far as I can tell. Nope...
