Here are some screenshots to illustrate what I mean. The HDR and PS water is nice, but the extreme pop-up issues and controls sours the game a lot. Add the lack of a true free roaming mode and the game is a poor attempt at GTA type gameplay.
These screenshots show 2 things. White textures and the sofa sorta appears out of thin air by moving my view a few degrees to the right(now you see it, now you don't):
This shot shows the nice PS water and HDR on the sky.
These 2 shots shows the pop-problems when driving around the city. Objects appear out of nowhere. Especially the foliage(but not only). They are appearring and dissappearing in and out. It's a bit annoying at times.
