Haven’t played this in a long, long time, but felt the need yesterday. I didn’t actually do much. I walked around for a while, marvelling at how lovely it all looks, found some pigeons, got into some fire fights with the police, delivered a few more cars for Stevie, took Carmen to a strip club, that sort of thing.

I’d forgotten just how good it looks and how much it feels like a solid world. As others have noted, though, the extra realism and weight to everything makes rampages a little less fun, a little more uncomfortable. That’s a minor nit, though, compared to everything good in the game. And, hey, if I just want to run around at stupid speeds setting people on fire, I’ve got Saints Row 2.
