Hum. This sounds like a cloud save issue to me, mate. Did Origin wave any flags in your face, tell you you lost connection at any point, or something similar? Alternately, did you switch computers? As for the saves, well, I've noticed myself they can happen rather quickly; it's easy enough to miss one if you aren't paying close attention. I haven't personally had any problems with the saves.

Yeah it did a couple of times lose connection. I don't know why. Gid I hate checkpoints.

Yeah it sucks. I wish you could just do maybe a max of 3 times per chapter + the checkpoints. I didn't turn the game off after it ♥♥♥♥ed me over once.

That'd be it then, the losses of connection. Given that I don't know what your internet situation is like, I can't really provide specific advice, but... do your best to make sure you have reliable internet so you don't lose your tenuous connection to the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s United server... err, sorry, *EA. Seriously, always-on DRM? They're a bunch of ♥♥♥♥♥.

In my opinion they should have added an auto/manual save option to the bench and suit kiosk. Would have made things alot easier. I hate playing for a few hours then saving and when I start back up I have to do the same thing over again but with the inventory that I had when I saved? WTF is that about? Let's save your inventory but not the point at which you leave the game. Stupid f#^$%ing game Devs. Its all related to the game being a console port. And a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ one at that.

I would have to disagree. The PC port is very good and the checkpoint system doesn't happen to relate to consoles IMO. Just look at Diablo 3. I'm pretty sure that's what they were going for with the selectable chapters (A diablo style system).

the progress save and check point saves are to accomodate for the co-op... think about it... when someone joins or vice versa, the host has the option to start from previous check point or continue to the next one, then the person joining just appears at the check point. if the check points were too far apart, the partner would never join...
one thing i noticed is that to roll, the tutorial says to double tap the button, which is in the console, however, i have it set as a button itself... clearly its a console port, as the tutorial is the same with the double tap... btw, i had issues with the save once, but that was due to a disconnection from the servers. nothing otherwise.
