OK so I'm not new to consoles or computers. Yet my experience with the Xbox One is borderline one of the most frustrating consoles EVER. Firstly.... So here we have Microsoft advertising Xbox One with emphasis on the voice command features. So after finally getting my Xbox One turned on and waiting for something to happen (seemed to take forever first time to boot up even) it finally came on - connected it to my network and did the first big update. Little did I realise that I would still have to download blu-ray player etc.. separately. I then proceeded to put Dead Rising 3 where it prompted me to download a 13GB file.... My internet connection is brutal. It took 2 days. It wouldn't let me play the game until I downloaded the patch. Plenty of time to get used to the menu system..... WHAT a cluttered mess. Seriosuly it's like someone had binged on a diet of speed and heroin before coming up with what must be the most confusing anti-intuitive interface ever. Yes it looks like 'MODERN/METRO' but its an outright mess. Next up - I try the voice commands. 'XBOX ON'.... nothing 'XBOX ONNNNNN'...... nothing 'XBOX FOR FECKS SAKE TURN ON'.. nothing ARGGHHHHh. I then proceeded to Xbox One support who tell me to re-calibrate kinect. With that done..... 'XBOX ON'... nothing again. So finally scouring support forum I discovered that if the country is set to Ireland Kinect features don't work - neither does TV So here we go... No figging working TV controls. No figging Kinect voice commands... (despite constant advertising of Xbox One with voice commands being predominant feature as well as TV integration).... Seriously WHAT IS THIS BLOODY BOX I JUST SPENT 500 on doing ????? Games seemingly take longer to install their contents from the disc to the HDD too. MICROSOFT - YOU NEED TO FIX THIS THING. FAST. It's just such a mess to use in comparison to the breeze that PS4's XMB is - and hey get this Microsoft - voice commands on the PS4 work in Ireland too .... -------------------------------------- So yeah not the greatest starts to my Xbox One experience. That being said .... Game experiences. So after two days of downloading Dead Rising 3 boots up. It's ok. Noticeably not as sharp as some of the PS4 launch titles - but still nice looking game. Frame-rate seems ok to me despite reports of it being choppy elsewhere. (perhaps the patch helped?) Forza Motorsport - ok not the biggest racing car driving game fan - but this is fun and I am enjoying it a lot more than Need For Speed Rivals on PS4 which I will now be trading in. My favourite game of the titles I bought though.... Zoo Tycoon. Yes I am a big fan of frontier with RCT3 and such and this game is just great. Menus are bit overwhelming but its by far for me the most engaging game I have played yet on the Xbox One. Still downloading Killer Instinct. Max and Crimson Dragon.
