First up, the main menu was baffling, there was no choice for "new game", "play game" or "join game" or anything. I don't play multiplayer games so maybe this is normal. Eventually I figured out you need to "Log In" to some kind of network, But I didn't know if this was the real online network, or just part of the game.
Then you spend 30 minutes getting familiar with your safe house. Are these graphics, design and controls really this horrible, or is it just me?
Finally, I figure out how to choose a mission and go, I chose what seemed like the easiest mission to get me started. Go to a mall and smash up the place. Do $50k of damage and leave. I went in. Wow, the graphics, design and lighting are truly horrid! I start shooting up the place, windows, cash registers, display cases, equipment, nothing... no "damage" yet. Um... Ok. It seems that you have to shoot specific things to do damage. So I found a CAR and emptied all my clips into it. Nothing... no "damage" registered. Finally I figure out I have to snipe wine bottles one by one while the swat team is swarming you. Ugh... this sucks.
