So, I've been playing Two Thrones and more recently the Sands of Time and in both I encountered various issues with the physics. In TT, I had trouble going down chains, as in I couldn't move down them. I had to press repeatedly for the prince to move down and in some cases had to angle the camera to get him to do so. Eventually, I got to a point where you have to run along the wall, swing from two hooks, jump off a spring and land on another spring. I tried maybe fifty times and I could not land on the second spring. I swear there is a physics bug where it doesn't register my second spring bounce, which causes me to just fall to my death. In SOT, I wasn't having any trouble until I crossed this bridge between to towers to have it fall out from under me. The trouble began when I tried to descend the tower, and I reached a platform that began to crumble beneath me. Walking on the crumbling surface made the prince bounce erratically, sometimes skyrocketing him up into the air to again fall to his death. I feel like Vista has some issues with the PoP. Anyone else experience anything like this?
