So we only have to wait until next season for this season's game to be playable?
Are we meant to applaud the game getting better over the course of a quarter of a century?
Well, I can categorically state that Volta is not fine. I gave it a go, and after the initial tutorial game had finished, whilst the "loading performance results" pop-up was displayed (or words to that effect) my game hung completely and I had to force a reboot back to the PS4 home screen. When I loaded back into Volta, I'd lost all progress and would have had to go through the tutorial again. No thank you.
As to your first point, I can think of plenty of heftier games coming out of smaller entities than EA that weren't essentially missing entire gameplay modes on release, and even accounting for those that do, that does not mean it is something that should just be passively accepted.
Apparently a PC modder has already created a fix that resolves most of the PC's versions bugs (and in some areas even improves Career Mode), and that's someone doing it as a bloody hobby.
