Because the game was rushed and is still buggy. Saddly the developers are nolonger around either, make sure update with all the unofficial patches since without it the game is almost broken.

I still have some performance issues. Just badly coded I guess.

It was an early version of the Source engine and apparently Valve wanted them to pay more for engine updates, or something to that effect. It's just poorly coded on the engine side of things.

Definitely worth sticking through the bad outdoor FPS though, its a tremendous game.

In streets the game seems to be CPU bound. better CPU will give better framerate .. thats what i experianced myself.
the framerate in streets will be the same NO MATTER WHAT RES or AA/AF settings you play at .. because its CPU limited. (it uses Source FYI).

Thats a load of bull, The developers went under before the game even released... Valve had nothing to do with it.

The game was rushed, It was ready to ship prior to even HL2 being completed... The only reason it didn't ship before was an agreement that Valve had to make HL2 the first Source Engine title on the market.

With all the bugs though, I still enjoyed the game. Its one of the better games out there...

I wish there was a demo of this, I want to give it a try.

I remember playing Redemption and not liking it much. This one sounds better.

The unofficial patch can only fix scripting errors and general problems, it can't fix engine issues.
