Just like everybody here, I bought the game hoping for a beautiful sequel, but instead I got:
1. A game that won't save AT ALL. Each time I start it, it asks me to make a new profile. The changes in the options and the game NEVER save.
2. A game with no controls. Once I go through the intro, I can only move Alice with the arrow keys (instead of wasd)/move the camera with the mouse. No other controls work, no matter how much I mash the keyboard. ONCE I managed to open the pause menu with the tab key, but only once. Also, I still could skip the intro cutscenes with spacebar. But when I come up to the pictures on the walls that I am supposed to view, it says "unbound" in the tooltip, instead of the key I'm supposed to press. To exit the game I have to press the start menu key or sometimes even press the power off button so that the game would exit before I get the "Windows is waiting for these programs to close" screen.
I have searched for possible fixes for this with no results. Either my problem is very rare or I am missing something obvious here.
I'm playing it on a laptop which is above the game requirements, the operating system is Windows 7.
I've already tried running it as administrator, running it manually (I bought it on stupid Origin,
even know apparently EA suddenly decided to release it on Steam too, FML), reinstalling it and now I reinstalled it again in a different drive. No results.
Either way, I REALLY need your help, please, I wanna play this game so bad, PLEASE.
