I just got this game yesterday for my PS3. I have it for my PSP (Remix).
Right off the bat I could not pick my nose without getting arrested. Arrested and losing the little bit of money that the races pay.
I read that getting the barrels - would get rid of the cops. In PSP version the collectables give you money.
I found a map - started getting the barrels. Even with the map some of them are very hard to find and ......... you ALWAYS (amost) get arrested and have to start all over looking.
I just read it was considered USING A CHEAT. I have no interest in using cheats in any game.
Why am I looking for the barrels? If you find them you are CHEATING and can not progress in the game. I don't get it.
What is the advantage of getting barrels in this version? If it is considered cheating - why look for them in the first place?
What can I do to deal with all the cops? (without cheating)
What are the 9,000,000 (seems like it) things that cause the cops to arrest you? I know you can't pick your nose or tOOt or run over the grass or or or but ........ what can you do (besides park).
I don't think the cops are ....... cool anymore. They now have me paranoid - (like going off in the grass in GT5p)
If the finding the barrels is cheating and stops your progress - why in the world are they even in the game?
Ok ..... I've stopped looking for the collectibles. In Remix they were a "good thing" in this game if you use them it is cheating.
I'll wait until much later to find the rest of them.
I am slowing adjusting to the differences in the two games.
I winning races but the money is still very slow. I hope the "purse" picks up later. I would like to get a car I kind of like - vs. this give away car.
I am also slow to adjust to the different controls - trying to figure out why I can't lock on a target location (not a race) but since I am stopping the barrel search - I guess that don't matter too much now.
I am finally getting the hang of the police scanner some - that helps.
I will get the hang of it. I was let down to find out the barrels just allowed the use of "cheats". It is none of my business what other do but - I don't use cheats. AFTER someone completes the game I can see using them for variations I guess.
My money sure is slow to build. Maybe it was this slow in Remix too - I did that one a good while ago.
The good news is ..... I have not been busted in the last 20 minutes lol.
Thanks for your thoughts.
