Played about 2 hours so far, so hopefully some of these change, but these are the main problems/annoyances I've experienced so far that I'd like to ask about:

- Why is your character's voice so deep? I realize that Vin Diesel's voice is naturally somewhat deep, but in this game it's almost unnatural. Almost like he has black lung or something. This just makes it look like he's trying to be too cool.

- Why does your character walk so incredibly slow? I could walk the speed he runs, and even if he's supposed to be jogging that's still pretty pathetic for someone so seemingly athletic.

- Why are his eyes and face so childish looking? He looks like a teenager, and when he looks in the rear-view mirror when he's talking to someone in his backseat, it looks choppy and not like him at all. However, I do realize this is only a video game and they can't perfect his motions and features exactly, this just annoys me.

- Why is the Pontiac G8 the only actual identifiable vehicle in the game? When I first played it and saw the G8 with all its glorious features, same grill and everything that they actually have in the real world, I was very impressed as well as excited to try other vehicles in the game. However I was extremely disappointed when I realized the G8 is apparently the most common vehicle in the world apparently, and all the others don't even seem to have emblems or actual brands or model names on the back like they do with the Pontiac. Could they only get the rights to use the Pontiac G8, or what?

- Last but definitely not least, why did they make it take so long for your escort to get in your vehicle after you switch from another? This may confuse some, so I'll give you an example. I don't recall which mission it was because you meet like 12 different members of different gangs in the first 10 missions you do, but I was taking somebody to the HQ of a gang, and my vehicle was wrecked. I air-jacked the vehicle in front of me, but instead of just taking off, I had to sit there for literally 1-2 minutes for my passenger to get out, walk towards me, and get inside. Meanwhile, all my enemies are surrounding me and shooting at us, and I had to drive around in circles until he could get to me safely or I would have died. Why give us this feature if I can't even safely use it?

Because I'm insanely bored, I'll do a follow-up on this despite the fact that nobody will read it or care if they do.

I played for a couple more hours and decided to call it quits there. I noticed the dozens of gang symbols that popped up all over my map were not markers for the gang's hangouts but different side missions like races and whatnot. Looking at them all I knew immediately that the game would become really repetitive, and me not being a fan of racing in the first place would not enjoy all those side missions. The main missions kept me entertained for a while but even they started to get boring.

A couple more things that turned me off about this game are that you can't run people over. Why? In other games that you can drive in like GTA or Saint's Row, that was like one of the funnest parts of the game, driving down the sidewalk and watching pedestrians strewn about in the air with ragdoll physics. And to make it worse, no blood? Even when shooting enemies? This may not be a problem to some, but I think the blood really adds to the realism and expert feel of the game.

Even though this game may not be for me, I can see why you people like it. Kudos.

Well your just picky. Whos to say we like this game? This game sucks a large d*ick if you ask me. But if the first things you can think of to insult are the voice acting and graphics than your never going to find the perfect game. SOme times you have to look beyond the simple crap like that. BUT in this case your partially right but only partly. And thats because this game sucks in its entirety not just its visual stuff.

Yea I can admit that graphics are the first thing that I look for in games before I even give them a chance, and this has always been a problem of mine.

Well I would just stop playing now and scour the internet for porn. There's lots of good stuff to be had.
