I just Completed the Entire Game.
I am only going to talk about the things that were REALLY Frustrating..things I consider a deal breaker, there were several smaller bugs, but I forgave all those.
1. From a Technical Stand point on the Xbox 360 version, I first tried playing each of 3 disc's without installing them first. On each disc, where you get called to chase a car down and capture the suspect, I ran into one HUGE Problem. As your chasing the suspects in car, the game draws in the details, several times I drove into a "Blurred" Area where my car Froze hovering above the ground, while the suspect car, drove off into a Bright White Nothing and requiring a Reboot of the 360! This was solved by installing each disc, but installing each disc eats up quite a bit of the hard-drive which if you have a small one, you might not be able to do.
2. Facial Animations, and presenting clues. It got quite easy to tell when they were lying, but presenting the right evidence against the suspect proved quite difficult for a "game." Asking the Community, not always gave you the right answer, as Rockstar was just giving percentages of what the community answered, not what was right. There was one case, an Arson case where I KNEW who did it out of the 3, but because of wrong evidence, the game "forced" me to pick the wrong guy.
3. When the game ends, it ENDS! It doesn't say ok now you can continue answering Police Radio calls to get your 40 Car chases in. The game doesn't alert you in ANY way that you are on your last case, say like Dragon Age where it warns you that if you have any more quests you better do them now! Instead it ends, and if you play after credits load it just starts you on the very last case, that forces you to protect another detective in a car, you can't ignore this and go do Police Radio Calls, you HAVE to protect the detectives car!
4. The MASSIVE issue I had is on the 3rd disc. For the first 2 Disc and half of the 3rd disc your playing the main character, and then BAM you switch to a totally other character. Wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't just invested SOOOO much time in the first character, but I am forced to play this non-police detective for an insurance company character. I get it..Your playing the guy who hates your main character..but by switching to the "Hate" guy the games ending looses its impact on what happens with the main Character! I wanted to be the main guy in the end sacrificing his life, not watching from above as the guy I just played on 2 and half discs go down the sewer as I am playing the "Hate" detective. By changing me to another Character at the end of the game allowed RockStar to control the narrative of the Main Character but also made me disconnected from him as well.
By the End I got so tired of the repetitive game play and the switch to another character in the final few chapters really ruined it for me. I have NEVER read a book where for the first 22 chapters it was about the main character, and then BAM in chapter 23-25 it is a brand New Character, and I just get to see the Character I cared about through this New Characters eyes..in this case the HATE. By the end I had lost care for the Main character and certainly did not enjoy playing the Insurance Detective at all!
I truly regret buying this game at Full Price and will not be buying a "Season Pass" nor DLC....Season Pass..OMG I can't believe this is happening...LOL. Sad but true...but I digress.
