    This is literally the second time they're removing a Lego game I'm in the middle of. Whiners about whiners can whine all they want, but there is NO justification for waiting to announce a second batch of removals each month that gives you even less time to finish things. They could have announced these with the last batch. Fuck this.

    Oh no onrush. Downloaded and was waiting to play it. Never got a chance
    I finished the game 100% back during the free-to-play weekend. I had no problem finishing it, bit I did spend most of that weekend playing it (my wife was not too thrilled about that haha). Still, it shouldn't be hard to finish if you put in a couple of hours a day for the next 9 days. Don't be put off by the higher ratio achievements either, they aren't too hard, the game just isn't good enough for most people to justify sticking around to get them.

    You can do it! toast
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    Cue the "this is why I don't do Game Pass" whiners in 3, 2, 1...
    This is why I don't do Game Pass! laugh

    no, srsly. GP was good for me on a few games (up to 10 I guess), but as a cheevo hunter with nearly 0 time it just doesn't fit my needs. And of course I already bought a good quarter of those Games myself before they came to GP redface
    This is my thought too with the limited time and hunting. But also how limiting it is by the completion times and fear of getting stuck with a BS game to complete. So glad to be rid of GP after this month because of games like Westerado that just for pressing start unlock an achievement now I'm stuck torturing myself finishing a game I think is terrible just for trying it to see what it was. They really need an xbox feature to disable achievements for games if you wish so you can demo stuff without being married to it. Then I could get behind GP and play more games just for fun without the achievement aspect limiting my choices.
    Westerado is awesome!!!!!!

    If an achievement marries you to a game, you're doing it wrong. Also, your completion percentage is 38%. roll

    Onrush is fun,but I did everything I wanted to do pretty quickly. That last cheevo is too grindy for me so I'm leaving it alone.

    Onrush had a good concept but was executed poorly. Game modes aren't fun for long because they are too same-ish. Huge balancing issues between car classes. Team AI sucks. Crashing into cars can be extremely frustrating, sometimes making absolutely no sense. Later career events are absolutely unforgiving and you're dependant on your AI mates to play well (which they won't of course...).
    And you'll have seen everything the game has to offer before the end of the second tier of events.

    I liked it, but the game got kind of tiresome towards the end. Don't know what MP was like because no one was playing every time I tried it.
    I agree with all of the above. I liked the idea but I have playing this last several days and more often than not I am getting frustrated with the later challenges and there is quite a balancing issues for the cars. And yes, the AI is horrible.

    I understand the fact that games are removed from Xbox Game Pass, but one month of notice would be better to finish ongoing games.

    why remove all of the 360 titles? I believe lego batman was only available for like 5-6 months only.

    Onrush is pretty fun but a frustrating completion. I dropped many F-bombs during the 12 Titan takedowns. laugh

    Just meant that your stance might be justified if you were a "completionist." But that's clearly not the case. So don't worry so much about the achievements and just enjoy the games. wink
