Everything was going fine in the campaign until I got to the Calypso mission. It takes me so long to kill the big ships that by the time I shoot one down, two or three more have spawned and are firing at and/or colliding with my colony. The only way I can survive for any length of time is by intentionally colliding with them when they spawn, but this leaves me with too little life to survive the second half of the mission. My special can help to take a few ships down too, but it doesn't take long before they spawn more and I'm stuck with the same problem. I try to lay down a ring of shields around my colony, but it doesn't take them very many shots to punch a hole through it. I tried starting over with a Defender, but the ships just collide with the turrets I set up and destroy them before they do any good. What am I doing wrong?

It's true there is a step up in difficulty at that level. We haven't fixed it, because it get easier when you play cooperative (4 players), but it is an issue that wemay have to address.
Thanks for letting us know, we really appreciate that you take the time to play it and explain your problem.

Hi Caine, yes. You can play the campaign mode "solo" or co-op and also you can play all the unlockable modes by yourself.

Thanks for tracking!

I updated today and it works now for me. Thank you for fixing the bug, but i have to agree with Logan2002, it really took a long time. Anyways, thanks again, good luck with the game.

I cannot get it to work on XBox 360 either. It crashes before it even starts. What's up with that?
