I really wanted this to be decent. I read the other reviews and concur entirely, but I want to mention a few things. The story gameplay isn't terrible. It could've been better, but was ok enough to get through and be entertained. Everything else about it sucks. The biggest gripe I have is that the side missions are not worth doing at all. There is no steak in getting 100% as all the small time crime missions don't even count towards it, and the bulk of the game is spent doing those. There are like 5 different types you can do, over and over, and doing them raises your Hero rating, but there is NO END to them, like with most open world games. And they expire, so if you're running around trying to get hidden packages, then the time runs out on these and your rating drops. If it drops into the negative, you get attacked by security forces. It just feels like work, there was nothing fun at all about it. Visually, the city looked great, but I don't think I would consider this to be a next gen game at all. I've seen better looking PS3 games. I wouldn't bother even renting, definitely don't buy. Let this one go and hope for a better one in the future.
