If so, I need a save point right after the point where you bust open the gate in the beginning of the game. I can't seem to break the chain with the machette.

I am Alive can blow me. It doesn't hold all the auto-saves. This blows. Anyone have or know of a cheat/trainer that I can force saves?

I would probably be further in it or even done with it but the version Impulse installs won't patch for some reason (it would help if they didn't bypass the launcher so anyone else even knew what I was talking about, or if they'd uploaded the patched version to Impulse.)

I bought this on Steam, finished it in 2 days and did not have a single problem with it while playing. It was a pretty good game and I'm hoping for a sequel.

I bought it for the PS3 because it seemed to be right up my street. Post apolocalyptic survival in an urban environment almost always seems like a cool game setting for me. Sadly I found myself getting too frustrated with how linear it was. Yahtzee's review pretty much covered the main points for me: The illusion of having to spare your ammo for when you would need it when in reality you didn't really get a choice, and the climbing mechanic which started out sounding like a great idea but quickly just became a pausing point throughout the gameplay.
Maybe I'll try it again, but a final problem I had were the controls. If you start from the beginning then it's ok, but after you've put it down for a while I've found that I can't remember a thing about the control system.

Finished it ages ago. Love this game. Hopefully they make a sequel.

Haven't played it yet so I can't help you with specifics, but I backup my saves manually for games that have retarded save systems, like Far Cry 3 for example.

I like him. A quick 5 minute review of a game, and a majority of the time if it's a game that I own I find myself agreeing with his points. I Am Alive is one of those games.

I like Yahtzee, his reviews are generally quick and humourous, and somehow he manages to cover 90% of game issues (positive & negative). I don't watch them regularly enough, I much prefer to watch them for entertainment purposes in one long stoner session than watching one at a time.

No worries y'all. I completed the game. It's actually a short and and the ending sucks!
