Looks pretty bad, graphics wise. "Don mode" looks fun. I might get it at some point.

Been playing it... alot. Florida gets damn hard. The graphics look dated but at times it looks amazing. Other times looks like a PS2. Lots of texture popping, short draw distances, shadow issues. Faces and facial sync with audio during cutscenes is very good though. Its another "different" game, not quite GTA IV, not quite SR2. FPS with RTS (Don's View) but it's alot of fun I love the animations with the weapons and vaulting things. The worst part about it would be the short draw distances when driving. Don't be fooled by the look, the game is alot of fun. You get lost for hours in the world roughing people up, taking over rackets and building your family.

Negative - not at all. Not a crash or lockup at all here. Using the latest WHQL drivers.

Pretty good game. Been enjoying it so far. GFX is dated but the game is fun at least for me.

Been getting slammed for bugs though. Has there been a patch. Are the bugs noticeable?

What kind of graphics options does the game have? AA? AF?
