Saved games gone?
Title updates are usually something to look forward to: they fix bugs, add new features, or restore an Xbox Live Achievement to working order. Sometimes things go awry though. Remember the Shuffle Party update that broke many of the game’s textures? Now we have an even worse example, as the Farm Frenzy 2 version 1.2 update has actually erased multiple people’s saves!
The actual intended purpose of the patch is something of a mystery, as the previous version 1.1 update fixed Farm Frenzy 2’s broken Achievement. This one might’ve been a bug fix release… That inadvertently introduced a scary new bug. Other than that, Farm Frenzy 2 is a pretty good time management/strategy title – see our review.
If you still play Farm Frenzy 2, the best thing to do for now is not to install the update. Nobody’s forcing you! In all likelihood, the patch will quickly get pulled and rereleased down the line. We’ve reached out to developer Alawar Entertainment for comment and will let you know when they respond.
